I DON’T CARE what political party you are from, there’s a documentary at the movies that’s called ‘2016.’ Everyone should go and see it.

•••

THE KING HAS got me laughing like crazy. I can’t believe that I can sit out here all by myself and laugh like that. Thank you, king!

•••

I WISH TO thank my neighbor on Loon Lake that cleaned out the beach in front of his house. Now I have all your weeds in the front of mine!

•••

WE ARE SO fortunate to have Adopt-A-Pet here in Fenton. I hope everyone supports them, even if they don’t want a pet. They can use kitty litter and dog food.

•••

WHO IS THIS Mother Nature? Has anyone ever met her? And if she does exist, why did she slam that hurricane into the gulf coast? Shame on her!

•••

HYATT ELEMENTRAY, NO right-hand turn lane has been put in yet. You can’t go around because the police will pull you over for going over a double yellow line. What are we supposed to do? I was pulled over last year and they said they were going to put in a right hand turn lane.

•••

THE 4300 BLOCK of Lahring Road in Fenton Township has become a dumping site for old vehicles and junk. The elected officials of Fenton Township need to address this.

•••

I’M SO SORRY the cobblestone vegetable stand closed. Where am I going to get my cabbage or melons? He had the biggest melons! I miss it already.

•••

THANK YOU TRI-COUNTY Times for providing the rest of us, regardless of our beliefs, to have a venue to speak to over 20,000 homes. I don’t always agree, but I do find the Hot lines interesting, and often informative.

•••

WHERE AM I going to get my giant cabbages for cabbage rolls this fall. Miss the fruit market.

•••

DOES ANYONE KNOW where the money from the Summer Happening festival in Linden went? Sure would like to know since our school board allowed the carnival to use the taxpayers’ property and allowed alcohol.

•••

THERE IS NOTHING wrong with a skating rink, but are you going to pay for the liability insurance? As soon as a child gets hurt, there will be a lawsuit the city cannot afford. This country’s population is sue happy! What’s wrong with the City Mill Pond?

•••

AGAIN THE ICE rink issue is not a city issue and not a kid issue. Dues are paid to make sure people follow certain rules. There has been no opportunity to vote on this issue in our subdivision. A few people cannot change it just ‘because.’ Follow the rules, quit crying!

•••

THE LINDEN HIGH School band program is more than the marching band. MB is an optional activity much like any sport, paid for by parent fees. Wind Ensemble and Concert Band are classes to excel in and deserve equal attention by the director. That is what he is paid for.

•••

SOMEONE WROTE, ‘MY mother thinks my father is cheating on her because of the construction on N. LeRoy.’ Your dad needs to find a new route home from work. Seriously, it’s not that difficult of a problem to solve. Quit blaming everything on the construction. You people annoy me.

•••

ALL ARE INVITED to Great Lakes National VA Cemetery in Holly on Oct. 6 at 9 a.m. to clean up headstones. Please RSVP a headcount to pardoncarl@yahoo.com or (248) 318-2042 by Sept. 17. Lunch will be provided. Please bring your own buckets and brushes. Thank you for your support! God bless.

•••

I THINK THE City of Fenton ought to put a stop light at the Silver Lake Road/West Street intersection. The wait to pull out can be as long as 20 minutes at a time, it’s downright ridiculous! It’s a pain to turn right then turn left in a driveway to go west.

•••

The audience at the DNC is very telling. They looked like they were bused in from a Weight Watchers meeting in New Orleans.

•••

REALLY, BASHING THE band and director? Take it from a recently former member, the band director cares a lot for the kids there. Self-discipline and perfect practice makes for a hard working band. If you haven’t been a part of the program, don’t think you know what’s best for them.

Beware The following Hot lines are all political

AM I BETTER OFF than I was four years ago? Yes, I am. But nearly everyone else I know is not.

•••

PLANNED PARENTHOOD ALREADY performs abortions on minors with taxpayer money and without parental consent. What Obama now supports is abortion anytime from conception to nine months and if a child is born alive during an abortive attempt, it can be killed. Read the Democratic Platform and remarks to verify.

•••

DEMOCRATIC ‘NEW IDEA’ philosophy for campaign, ‘I wouldn’t have to steal if the government gave me more money.’ That says it all doesn’t it!

•••

WHAT WOULD YOU rather have, a president who will provide you a job and be self-sufficient (Romney) or a president that will give you food stamps and depend on him for everything else (Obama)?

•••

WHY DO YOU think the Republicans are taking your money through taxes? Obama is the one creating those taxes and last time I checked he’s a Democrat! Look how he got the Supreme Court to agree with Obamacare? Called it a tax that the government can utilize to tax you.

•••

SOME VERY FAR right literature arrived in my mailbox. I only hope that people stupid enough to read this stuff are too stupid to make it to the polls.

•••

WHY WOULD YOU vote for Romney, for a candidate that pledged not to raise taxes? I thought our president made pledges to protect, uphold, and defend our constitution, not make pledges to wealthy lobbyists. commentary ARE!

•••

Compare  Michelle Obama to Ann Romney. One is a classless, greedy, deceptive, America-hating parasite who has spent literally tens of millions of our tax dollars on herself. The other is dignified, patriotic, honest, and responsible woman. Which would you rather have as your neighbor?

•••

ONLY IN AMERICA would people vote for a man or president who keeps his assets in a foreign country.

•••

I’M HEARING MANY politicians are inferring that Social Security and Medicare are government welfare programs. After paying into that a working lifetime, can’t we expect to get what was promised to us?

•••

I’M NOT LAZY, but I think the 1 percent should pay the same income tax as I do. Some people in this town think they’re part of that group, but they are going to find out they are just cannon fodder for the Republican Party.

•••

AT 4 P.M. EST the American debt passed $16 trillion. Obama spent $5 trillion over budget himself. We pay from $400-500 billion/year in interest on that debt. Our government cannot continue spending over budget, borrowing, regulating companies out of business or making false financial promises.

•••

THE OBAMA WAY — welfare as a career choice with people who worked hard all their life to be successful paying for it.

•••

WHY IS IT that you ‘poor’ people whine about someone having money in the bank and expect them to pay your way? If you want something, you have to get off your duff and earn it. Welfare is a hand up, not a way of life.

•••

AM I BETTER off than I was four years ago? Heck no! I am worse off. Four years ago, when I filed my income tax I actually got money back, but now I am paying out the nose for income tax.

•••

THE REPUBLICANS SIMPLY do not care about you. They’re willing to screw over millions of Americans, as they’ve shown by refusing to vote on the Jobs Act, just to put one man out of work.

•••

IT IS NOT A CRIME, OR IMMORAL, to support intelligent abortion policies, and the legal union of a same-sex couple. If it’s good enough for the leader of the free world, then it’s good enough for me.

•••

ANN ROMNEY’S SPEECH was simply awful. I really don’t care what her sad story is about eating off an ironing board. President Obama is the man for me, and thousands of others who are not rich, and deserve our fair share.

•••

YOU HAVE TO think logically about this a little bit. If Democrats were not the recipients of voter fraud and Republicans were, Democrats would be shouting from the rooftops to have a national photo voter ID law on the books tomorrow.

•••

ARE YOU BETTER off now than you were four years ago? I bet if your name is Romney, you can answer yes.

•••

I DON’T KNOW WHY ANYBODY wants to be president. President Obama looks like he is 20 years older than when he took office. It’s true, be careful what you wish for.

•••

AHH, BUT YOUR President sees OASDBI as an account he can steal from to pay for his programs, even though anyone that gets a paycheck pays into it.

•••

MICHELLE OBAMA TELLS the DNC her husband is not done with his job. What really is his job? Making sure America is put on food stamps, unemployment, get this country further into debt? This guy needs to be impeached from office.

•••

WHY IS IT I get the feeling that your president is overtaxing me, the little guy just trying to get by? He is a member of the rich and doesn’t care one iota for the small guy like he says. Why can’t his wife buy clothes at Wal-mart?

    DOES ANYONE KNOW where the money from the Summer Happening festival in Linden went? Sure would like to know since our school board allowed the carnival to use the taxpayers’ property and allowed alcohol.

    To the person who asked this question? If there is enough money left after paying the enormous amount of bills to put on such a production, the left over money goes into a general fund to prepare for the next years festival. In the defense of the School Board, they had not and never did allow alcohol on any school grounds. Get your facts straight. And as for the Carnival, they came here with a big risk, seeing how the festival had to move to a new location and they too suffered a big loss in revenue. If you feel the need to question the inner workings of a festival, I invite you to step up and actually donate your time like everyone else does on the committee of the festival! Would you have rather-ed there be no festival???

    I was saddened by remarks made by a Hotline contributor implying that they get their morality from Obama regarding late term abortions and same gender marriages. No wonder with that attitude that the country is in such a rotten mess. Myself and millions of others' receive instruction and morality from the Holy Bible. We usually try to vote for fellow "true" believers as this is indeed right and moral. Man will deceive and confuse but the God of the Bible never lies and misdirects our steps in lifes' journey..
