Has anyone suggested that the republicans of Kentucky vote against their own best interest since joining the party? Or that their thoughts and prayers for Trump might have brought the wrath of god on themselves?

They like to blame everything on something other than themselves and trust in god for telling them to build their lives in a drainage ditch.

Obadiah 1:1-4
[1]The vision of Obadiah. Thus says the Lord God concerning Edom (We have heard a report from the Lord, And a messenger has been sent among the nations, saying, “Arise, and let us rise up against her for battle”):
[2]“Behold, I will make you small among the nations; You shall be greatly despised.
[3]The pride of your heart has deceived you, You who dwell in the clefts of the rock, Whose habitation is high; You who say in your heart, ‘Who will bring me down to the ground?’
[4]Though you ascend as high as the eagle, And though you set your nest among the stars, From there I will bring you down,” says the Lord.

Mitch McConnell is KYs karma. He's a hex on the state.

Whoa ! This is crazy.
Too much rain 🙁

Christopher McCord August 1, 2022 - 11:15 PM

I've lived around Central Kentucky my entire life…. of the 25 poorest counties in the entire US 10 are in Kentucky and most of those are in Eastern Kentucky…. if these people don't have enough sense to move away or at least to the top of the nearest mountain there is no help for them…. most insurance companies won't cover these places for the obvious reasons…. as soon as those that aren't smart enough to move get rebuilt another food will come along and take EVERYTHING again…. climate change is real and ironically enough torrential down pours are a part of it…. Move…. Just move!….

Berpha Nations August 1, 2022 - 11:15 PM

Louis 3 August 1, 2022 - 11:29 PM

Kentucky is a red welfare state, they take money from blue states and then Moscow McConnell and that thing they call Rand oppose them. Aquided a Russian criminal twice. Poorest people in America keeping red politicians in power. Good luck on the Rebuild! Don't send a dime! Trump will throw paper towels!!
