SO MICHIGAN IS still playing powder puff football? When are we going to get to the Powerhouse status? How many years will it take? Time to get a quarterback that can play the game.

•••

HOW MANY DIFFERENT ways can the Fenton administration and council find, to legally steal our money? I know, a permit to mow our lawns and wash our windows. Then they will give us a ticket and the judge will uphold it because it is legal. Too much government.

•••

FENTON COUNCIL, wake up! Your mismanagement of our valuable tax dollars is near criminal. Maybe we should reconsider the people we have hired, such as the city manager and his assistant.

•••

HOW MUCH LONGER do we have to put up with the construction on North LeRoy? Seems like whenever Fenton takes on a road project it generally turns out taking way longer than expected.

•••

TO THE LADY in the white SUV that got $60.46 at the gas station on North LeRoy Sept 6, at 5:33 p.m. It would be nice if you came back and paid for your gas, I cannot afford your gas on my pay.

•••

HOW ABOUT THAT new company that has come to town by the railroad tracks in downtown Linden. Put the name of your business up so we know you are there.

•••

FENTON’S STUDENT SECTION outperformed again, even after the rain. Ten girls randomly screaming is not how it’s done. Get organized like Holly’s, Linden’s and Adrian’s. An organized group cheering in unison can be very intimidating for the opponent. Get it together, give us something to remember, make us proud!

•••

I’M SURPRISED THAT no one else is upset that Fenton is spending $100,000 of unbudgeted funds to hide a pump station that affects one house in one secluded neighborhood. Waste of $$.

•••

NOW THE OAKLAND County Inspectors need to get to Holly Shores to have these people fix their septic systems, or get them tagged unfit to live in. Night time, all the pumps go and they’re dumping into the river. The air smells horrible. Can’t keep windows open at night.

•••

IF WE’RE GOING to restore downtown Fenton, then I recommend putting parking meters in the new, expensive parking spaces. If you want the convenience, then pay a bit for it.

•••

GOD BLESS OFFICER O’Rourke and his family. What a senseless tragedy.

•••

QUESTION: WHAT IS slower than a two-toed sloth? Answer: The LeRoy Street Project.

•••

I WAS CALLING about the North LeRoy construction. I read somewhere it was supposed to be done by September and it looks like production’s gone down.

•••

TO THE GUTLESS weasels that are dumping trash out on Rohn Road: it’s a matter of time, we’ll get you.

•••

I HAVE AN idea what the water drainage problem is. I would challenge the water department if they would check every sewer drain in the streets of Fenton that 50 percent are plugged with debris.

•••

I WAS LOOKING at the city of Fenton’s website and I noticed that now in Fenton after Aug. 1, you have to ask the kings and queens of Fenton if you can put siding on your house. When you do get their permission, they’re going to charge you fees. Hmm, taxation without representation? Socialism sucks.

•••

I WAS JUST at a local store and someone’s purse was stolen by another lady who lied and said it was hers. I hope you feel real good about yourself.

•••

THIS IS NANCY and I live out in Gaines. In my yard, I have a big lilac bush, which is blossoming. I thought I would put that in the Hot lines because people are always putting ‘first things’ in there. Thank you.

•••

TO THE MAN on the lake who keeps calling everyone who is five or 10 pounds overweight, you should be ashamed of yourself. Don’t throw stones when you live in a glass house.

•••

WE SAW YOU in my yard last night throwing sticks at my paddleboat, grow up, before you end up getting in trouble.

•••

BEWARE!The following Hot lines are all political commentary

I LET THE first Hot line pass about Michiganders and their politics, but had to speak out this time. We all are not Democrats and we do not vote with blinders on. I will confess though, I did vote for Carter but have since taken off the blinders. I have had enough economic misery.

•••

THIS IS TO the person who does not understand why the GOP was saying ‘we built this.’ Where have you been the last two months? Obama is the one that said we did not build our businesses, not the GOP. It was our blood and sweat that built it, not the government.

•••

THE REPUBLICAN-MAJORITY house passed over 20 jobs bills with bi-partisan support only to have the Democratic majority senate leader refuse to bring even one to the floor for debate let alone for a vote. Can be verified.

•••

SAYING THE REPUBLICAN Party is primarily made up of old white folks is the same nonsense as saying the Democratic Party is primarily made up gays, blacks, welfare recipients and abortionists. Both parties have many different members and points of view. Don’t be so close-minded.

•••

PEOPLE OF WEALTH don’t steal their money, they earn it. If the 1 percent pay at a lower tax-rate than the middle class it’s because they retired, pay taxes on money that’s already been taxed, and/or make large donations to charities. Romney donated 20 percent of his income and paid millions in taxes.

•••

NOVEMBER WILL BE a crossroad in American history. It will not be a Democratic or Republican election but a vote for Socialism or American freedom. If the vote is for socialism, all the American freedom fighters since the 1700s who have given the greatest sacrifice will have died in vain.

•••

IF YOU DON’T like that fact that rich people ‘legally’ pay taxes at a lower rate than you, then vote for Romney who is in favor of tax reform that would eliminate loopholes and ensure that everyone would pay taxes at a fair rate.

•••

MANY UNION MEMBERS were forced to join a union. Shouldn’t union membership be a choice? Has being a union member helped you personally with your job? If all you know is working for a union, why not look into how non-union people that do your job are doing? Right to work?

•••

IT WAS DECIDED in Roe v. Wade that a woman can have an abortion but the law does not say that taxpayers should pay for it. That is what Obama is asking for.

•••

OBAMA BLOCKED THE Keystone pipeline, gave and lost hundreds of millions of dollars to ‘green’ energy and has over-regulated the oil, coal and gas industries blocking jobs and energy independence and gas prices were at a historical high on Labor Day. Wrong candidate. Wrong direction.

•••

OBAMA BETTER GET off his high horse and become good buddies with Netanyahu. If Iran attacks American assets, then it will be Obama’s fault, because Obama already said when the crap hits the fan he’ll side with the Muslim countries. He doesn’t care about American assets!

•••

OBAMA GAVE THE rights to count most of the votes in the upcoming presidential elections to SCYTL, a company based in Spain that provides ‘secure’ voting services. George Soros, Obama’s long-time billionaire mentor and supporter just bought SCYTL. That’s not a coincidence and is extremely troubling. Can easily be verified.

•••

AS AN AMERICAN citizen I don’t want an ineligible voter casting a vote that may cancel mine. States are making every effort to ensure that everyone that casts a vote is a citizen but Obama is challenging every effort the states’ are making to ensure a fair election. Why?

•••

THANKS TO OBAMA’S policies, the unemployment rate went down a measly .2 percent while only adding a paltry 96,000 jobs in August with 368,000 people dropping out of the workforce. In Obama’s convention speech he said, “I am not done yet.” Heaven help America if he is re-elected.

•••

IF PRESIDENT OBAMA is such a great president than why didn’t his own party show up to listen to his acceptance speech?

•••

AS PUBLICIZED AS the war in Iraq was, why does the American public think they were told everything that was found or not found? The Iraq war was totally censored, only unclassified information was given. Ever hear the saying ‘Loose Lips, Loses Lives.’

•••

TIRED OF HEARING how Obama saved GM. GM went bankrupt after the billions given to it by Obama. Should have let them go bankrupt without the money and they would still be in business and not owe the taxpayers billions. Romney was right. Oh, they have not repaid their debt.

•••

ABORTION IS A NON-issue for the election. We never ever voted for abortion, it was Roe v. Wade, a Supreme Court decision. They are the only ones that can overthrow it. Please quit using it against each other!

•••

IN RESPONSE TO the person who asked which person, Michelle Obama or Ann Romney, I would prefer to have as a neighbor the answer is simple: either one. Both seem to be fine women. However, the person I would not like to have as a neighbor is the disgusting person who wrote such hateful and slanderous things about the first lady of the United States.

•••

THREE TIMES THE Democrats were asked to include God in the platform. And three times the crowd shouted no and denied God. Give us Obama, they cried.

•••

IF YOU DELVE into Mitt Romney’s background you will learn when he was head of Baine & Co., he had the utmost ethics. He was very particular as to how he invested money. He didn’t invest in alcohol or tobacco companies. He was very successful in helping Dominos and Staples get going and creating jobs.

•••

AT THE REPUBLICAN National Convention they didn’t focus on what is wrong with America, they focused on what is wrong with Obama and the Democratic administration and why they are incapable of fixing our economy.

•••

THIS IS ABOUT Michelle Obama and her healthy eating for children. How about all these people on food stamps that can buy energy drinks and pre-made frozen food? Why doesn’t she teach them how to cook? Why can they spend mega bucks in convenience stores?

•••

THIS PRESIDENT HAS continued to divide our country. He continues to pander to his base, which consists of blacks, Muslims, gays, Hollywood actors and singers, and very low educated Americans. Republicans continue to represent hard working families that believe in God and country. They have many fresh ideas that will help our country in the coming years.
