Kentucky's answers simple. We need a better Educational system. We need a better resolution to the current drug epidemic, other than UNITE... which is funny, when you think about it... because the Sheriff's office is all about cleaning up Martin County... all the while our Sheriff is constantly giving his daughter a ride home from the party spots, and taking every one else who was there with her to jail...

Then of course we can't forget about all the corrupt deputies... And I know not all of them are, but the greater majority are adulterers, closet-case drug-abusers and so on...

Hell, at one point or another, I've partied with several current deputies... and I KNOW what kind of people they are...

Most importantly, we need parents to be parents... instead of trying to be best friends with their children. People like to place blame on others for the actions of their children, when the fact of the matter is, if they simply had more influence over their kids lives, we wouldn't have to worry about the ignorance that has plagued our area for the past decade....

I challenge any of you to move to a town, city or State where you don't think all cops are corrupt. That the highest officials don't cover for their sultry children and family members. You can't be satisfied. If something doesn't go your precious way, then it must be corrupt or a conspiracy. No one ever does their job the way it should be, all people in charge of anything slept or bought their way into their positions and YOU are the only fine, upstanding, literate, law abiding, shit smells like roses person who could run the show. No one make you live in a place you hate. No one wants you to suffer such atrocities. I recommend you pack your shit, use that welfare check (A.K.A. Government hush money because of all you know about them) to buy some pop and exchange it for a plane ticket and fly your rosy fat ass to Iraq. Then you can be with the thinkers of the world.

Kentuckians for the most part are a good reason for instituting birth control or sterilization. I remember reading a report issued in 1972 that said that the three states with the highest flunk out rate on a military test found that respondents from Kentucky, Tennessee, and West Virginia had the highest rates of failure. Ironic isn't it? Doesn't that in itself say something about the lack of intelligent life that one finds in the Bluegrass, Mountaineer, and Volunteer States.

i think the answer for kentucky is everyone that dont love their native land to get the hell out. i bet our ancestors that crossed these old hills, faught natives, cut, chopped, and hacked thier way into a new frontier for future generations to prosper appriciate people bad mouthing their homeland . jobs, jobs, jobs, thats what we need. to me any buisness that moves from the united states and disrupts our economy while lining their pockets on the base of cheap labor and cheaper products shouldnt be allowed to trade with us. things are made cheap, quanity kicks the hell out of quality now adays. the reason we're on top is because the united states became self sufficient. we grew our own food, made our own products, and exported more than we imported. thats what pulled us out of the depression. when WWII broke out we didnt buy forein, hell no american names like remington, winchester, and colt went to war. the american farmer is a thing of the past, even here in kentucky look whats happened to us, our tobacco was sent to turkey and now 60% is grown there. what kind of a damn idiot made that decision? fuck japan, fuck china, fuck turkey. the united states need to invest in itself, just the same as this great state does.

MrCrickett, your short paragraph speaks volumns and I concur with you completely. The time for Americans to reclaim America has long since passed, but for the sakes of our offspring and their's, we all do need to get off our asses and make positive and constructive decisions for 'us', for a change. The U.S. has handed out, given away, allowed to be taken, and generally forfeited most of what our forefathers had intended that we hold on to. That they fought and died for. Third world nations are now prospering due to the U.S. while we're spiraling downward. I wonder who will stretch out a hand when we need it? Don't anyone hold their breath waiting.

Start by hauling in and prosecuting all the child molesters/incest offenders that continue to roam free because the authorities and justice system just can't seem to enforce the laws. Everyone knows everyone in small towns.Some of these counties just don't want to hurt the feelings of these individuals who commit heinous crimes against innocent children.Realizing this could be in any state, but from what I've personally seen and read about, this is commonplace in and around Kentucky.This should be on the top of the priority list of things to get done. This is a very traumatic and painful situation for a family to go through when their child gets molested. So that would be my number one agenda for the state of Kentucky. No citizen in a community should have to worry they may be the next victim of a sex offender.I know what I am talking about. My grandchild was molested by three family members of a certain family who reside in Albany.And they still continue to thumb their noses and scoff at any kind of authority.They may go free in this life, but there will be a very special place in hell reserved for them in the next life.

Rest assured my friend, you have a greater knowledge of things than most of the so called leaders. Hopefully you and your generation will be instrumental in making the necessary changes. The baby boomers, yes, my generation, have done their best to bring this nation to where it is. What's that tell you? We could screw up a bucket of rusty hammers.

they wont the rich get richer while we get poorer. the rich ones are the ones that start war and run the country, ppl like me just give our lives, blood, and tax dollars in hope that maybe one day we might have sothin to show for it. we wont be nothn more than a granite stone on the hill tho. itll be there children that lead us, and rest assure they'll be nice and healthy, not a scar or callous one to be seen.
