Ralph really hurt his self when he went out and betrayed the coal workers by kissing up to the unions and obama in Lebanon. He lost my ear and many others who used to go see him and had a lot of respect for him.

No, what's sad is that people are picking on an old man who can still sing and play better than most people on Topix.

Clintwood and Dickinson County live on government handouts. Period. And let's all thank Bud Phillips for driving the natural gas industry out of Southwest Virginia. Bud blew it big time on this issue. It blew up in his face. And you people want him as a judge?

Actually it's the truth. Ralph Stanley has contributed more to American culture/music than you will ever contribute to anything.

Come out of the holler and get a job, you'll learn the truth soon enough. If not, it won't be long before they close the Coeburn Post office and we'll see how much you like that.

I don't get a welfare check..if that's what you are implying! Every time Republicans argue with a Democrat,they bring up Welfare and abortion??? A lot of people are just rich in ignorance and all Democrats don't support abortion! I know I don't!
