OBAMA DECIDED THE violent attack on our embassy wasn’t a spontaneous demonstration. He now agrees with everyone else that, ‘It’s self-evident the event was a planned terrorist attack.’ Obama had prior warning but took no action to increase security. He’s busy campaigning while Americans are dying. He’s incompetent and disgraceful.

•••

TO THE PERSON that said, ‘Polls don’t lie,’ polls can and do render false information. Get your facts straight before you contribute to the demise of America.

•••

THE STATE DEPARTMENT spent $70,000 for ads on Pakistani TV featuring Obama and H. Clinton rejecting the content and message of the anti-Islam movie-trailer they linked to the anti-American terrorist attacks. Obama apologized that our freedom of speech hurt the feelings of Muslims as the protesters call for death to Americans.

•••

I WAS SO sad to read that one of the managers at the Panera Bread in Fenton has been killed in a motorcycle accident. Mr. Muncy was always so helpful at the store and tried to always please his customers. May he rest in peace and comfort for his family.

•••

HAVE YOU SEEN the playground at Ellen Street? The staff, principal, and families volunteered their time and resources to make that school even better. And it was completely grant funded. Ellen Street is a great place to be. Check it out.

•••

CHANGING MICHIGAN’S CONSTITUTION is serious business that can create detrimental unintended consequences that are difficult to change. Without time to study the issues, vote ‘no’ and revisit later.

•••

THE APPLEFEST RACE closed roads. I had to debate with a pig-headed cop to let me by, so I could get home. Fenton has to figure out how to run this thing or cancel it. Sidewalks belong to the people.

•••

OBAMA’S EPA IS shutting coal plants all over. As a result, 2015 energy prices will skyrocket. Hold on to your wallets. Welcome to Obamaland. Manufacturing initiatives that will never save or pay back a penny. What good are lean practices if labor contracts do not allow head count reduction objectives to be achieved? It takes leadership and courage to seize opportunities to harvest the intended lean savings that will translate into a more competitive market position.

•••

SILVER LAKE ROAD is already headed back toward its old condition. The barrels are still on the shoulder and Fenton has already dug up a section and tossed a little patch in to fill the hole. The least they could do is pack it down a bit. Way to go Fenton.

•••

TRI-COUNTY TIMES, PLEASE take the time to fact-check Foster Child’s column, he’s lying again about the cost of dresses.

•••

THE TIMES IS looking for families in the tri-county area that have both University of Michigan and Michigan State University fanatics for an upcoming story. If you want to be part of this story, e-mail news@tctimes.com with your contact information so that a reporter can call you.

WHY IS GAS in Fenton 20 cents higher a gallon than it is at Grand Blanc Road and 23, or in Flint?

‘THE DEMOCRACY WILL cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.’ — Thomas Jefferson

•••

OBAMA HAS NOT had a budget for three years and has out spent the previous budget by over a trillion dollars for each of his four years in office. Consequently, in January, the largest tax increase in the history of the United States is set to take effect for everyone.

•••

I AM A Democrat, my father was a Democrat his father was a Democrat and the rest of the family are Democrats. I work for the government, so why would I vote for a President that is freezing my pay for five years? Who would, in their right mind?

•••

DO YOU REALLY think that if a new president gets in there he’ll wave a magic wand and everything will be fixed?

TEACHERS CANNOT TEACH children whose parents have brought them up to disrespect and disrupt. Parents are the ones who should be tested to see what they have taught them at home.

•••

WHAT SOME PEOPLE in this town don’t seem to realize is yes, we have freedom of religion by the constitution, but we also have freedom from other’s religions. Don’t force your religion on me.

•••

MY 9-YEAR-OLD granddaughter doesn’t have any problem with the Cialis ads. She thinks it’s for bathtubs.

•••

THANK YOU TRI-COUNTY for the wonderful article on the Fenton High School band, it’s awesome! The kids are hard working and they have a great sound, I heard them at the games. Go Tigers, Roar!

•••

I JUST WATCHED on TV about the most dangerous road on earth. It was a mountain road in Peru. I don’t think so. I think the most dangerous spot is actually in front of the community center in downtown Fenton. The only way those angle parkers can get back out onto LeRoy Street is to back up blindly and hope that nobody is sailing along talking on their cell phone and annihilates them.

•••

HOW DOES OUR national security look now? First 20+ countries burn our flag, ransack our embassies, kill our people while saying ‘death to America’ and we respond by Barack and H. Clinton going on Pakistani television and apologizing for a film by some obscure director that no one has seen.

•••

MAYBE IF MORE men hugged each other instead of criticizing them; stealing from them, judging them, or shooting at them, the world wouldn’t be in as much trouble as it is!

•••

OBAMA’S PICKING A Clintonite White House. Some change.

•••

Anne Romney’s dress was between $2,000 and $2,400 and Michelle Obama’s was about $900. He’s pegged it at $9,000 just to get people riled up. All the small minds in the tri-county area. It’s a disservice to have this kind of yellow journalism week after week right on top of your second page. You should retire this old and tired journalist.

•••

I WAS BORN in Fenton many years ago and my folks always had chickens. It was a nice town, people didn’t pick on each other all the time. Live and let live.

•••

WE HAVE TO be educated on how to handle these other countries. It’s too bad people cut down the president as they do, he knows what he’s doing and why.

•••

I WELCOME IMMIGRANTS, but don’t sit there and speak a different language in front of me. It’s offensive and it’s insulting. You need to learn our language, learn our society or shut up or get out. You’re not needed.

•••

PLEASE KEEP HOLLY a beautiful place in the country. Store your wood in a shed in your backyard, not your front yard with ugly blue tarps.

•••

AFTER READING THE political Hot lines, I can safely say that if anything happens to Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingram or any of the right-wing blowhards, there are plenty of people right here in Fenton that can replace them.

•••

THE UN GENERAL Assembly with world leaders is meeting in NY this week creating an excellent opportunity for Obama to meet with them and discuss economic and military issues. Obama’s meeting with the ladies from The View and no one from the UN. That’s our pop-star leader. We deserve better.

•••

TO ALL OF those who have a problem with the new president elect, get over it. Now you will know what it feels like to have a leader that you didn’t vote for.

•••

THE GENESEE COUNTY road crew is installing a new stop light at Torrey and South Long Lake roads, where it is not necessary. It should be installed one mile south at Torrey and North roads where there is a lot more traffic.

•••

A KOOL-AID DRINKER is someone who believes anything they’re told and refuses to change their mind even when confronted with facts. It refers to the Jonestown mass suicide incident. The fact that one would immediately assume it is a racist comment is disturbing to me.

•••

THE GENESEE COUNTY Humane Society is in need of donations. Times are tough for all of us, but the items that are needed are very low in cost, such as soap, garbage bags and paper towels.

    To the person who thinks a traffic light didn't need to be placed at Torrey and South Long Lake Roads. Perhaps you are new to Fenton, there have been deaths there and tragic accidents in the past....people that died, who a long time ago, were fellow classmates.
