One Woman’s Opinion

Jackie Reed, Columnist

Thanks, Speakin Out News and to our many dedicated readers.  I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. ARE YOU READY FOR 2021? I can remember the year 2000 and how we were all so excited about celebrating it. There has been a lot happened since that time and our country is in a mess. 

Of all that is happening today we need to be happy and give thanks that we are still alive.  So many have lost loved ones and the virus is something I pray daily will go away. Please be careful as this virus is not over. The coronavirus pandemic has thus far claimed more than 4,100 people in Alabama.  What will Alabama look like in 2021? I hope our Leaders will go to other countries and find out who started this mess.  I do not believe it was something that started by itself.

Pray and give thanks every day for Life, Health, Faith, Family, and Friends and that we all come to know God. 


A poll taken for Gov. Kay Ivey’s s study group on Gambling Policy showed strong support for a lottery in the state.  The results consisted of 500 people who said they planned to vote in the 2022 general election.  The group voted 71% in favor of the lottery. The lottery will likely come up again in the legislature sessions beginning February 2nd.


Thank you, Congressman Mo Brooks for embracing and spear heading the fight for Trump.   Mo Brooks is known for speaking his mind freely. This Huntsville native served 9 years in the Alabama Legislative, 1 year as the Madison County District Attorney and 14 years as County Commissioner before going to Washington. His services are appreciated.


Are all of you happy with your $600.00 the Democratic Government sent you?  Makes me sick that people believe this new Administration is going to do anything for the people.  President Trump wanted to give $2000 per person but the democrats would not approve it. We need democrats and republicans to stop spiting one another and have them do what is right for we the people. God will not ask you when you leave here if you or a Republican or a Democrat. He will not care.  We need to know our Leaders and what they truly stand for before we vote them into office. Trump got the vaccine for the people and wanted to do more but the election is OVER.

I hope 2021 is better for each one of us.

Love you all and have a blessed week.
