I JUST BOUGHT some new postage stamps that say ‘liberty, justice, equality and freedom.’ Everything the Republican Party is fighting for, and everything Obama is trying to take away. I stand behind Romney and Ryan.  

•••

YOU KNOW I’VE been a storm chaser for many years. I’ve been all over this country, I’ve been everywhere in the world. And there’s no place in this world that can hold a candle to Argentine. It’s the best place in the world. I love you all. 

•••

YOU KNOW THERE is no requirement for a president to go to college or pass college, so I don’t really care if Obama passed home economics. However, I would like to know if a president, or someone who wants to be president, has money stashed off shore, and he’s not supporting the country. That’s what I care about.

•••

WHAT I HAVE to defend my family and my home with is my own business. Take care of your own business.

•••

THE ONLY REASON Republicans want to take away Social Security and Medicare is so they can brag about how they’ve fixed the economy. Taking away Social Security and Medicare is a hanging offense, I think.

•••

I HOPE ALL U.S. workers took a hard look at the thousands of illegals lined up to get green cards. Obama just traded your job, for their vote.

•••

WHAT’S UP WITH the road construction on North LeRoy Street? It’s already at least a month behind schedule, and will there be any tax relief for the businesses that lost 50 percent in sales because of it?

•••

YES, OBAMA AND Biden have dragged this presidential race into the gutter with their flagrant lies and their despicable campaign rhetoric. They will do anything to be reelected. Obama has continued to worry more about reelection than the next generation. He has to go.

•••

OBAMA, BIDEN AND the ‘Spendocrats’ have created the single worst economy in 75 years here in the United States. Obama has proven to be incompetent and dangerous. Romney does have a plan to bring back jobs that Obama has lost.

•••

VERY SOON, OBAMA’S plan will be carried out to steal $716 billion to be transferred form Medicare, to Medicaid, part of his transfer wealth plan. I am a senior citizen, and all seniors will be suffering greatly under this Obamacare plan. If you look at the Romney/Ryan plan, it is designed to save Medicare.

•••

WOW, ANOTHER TYPICAL liberal solution. If you just remove the cap on payroll taxes and apply them to capital gains the problem will be solved. You just don’t get it. You can’t keep punishing the job creators and expect to keep getting jobs. Man, November can’t come soon enough.

•••

THE TRI-COUNTY Times is working on a story about lakefront property disputes. If you have been involved with an unresolved or successful dispute and wish to be part of this story, e-mail your contact information to news@tctimes.com so a reporter can contact you.

•••

THE REPUBLICANS HAVE historically been against Social Security and against Medicare. They have been against food stamps and the school-aid lunch program. Now they have collected my taxes for a lifetime, and I am a socialist now because I expect to collect Social Security and Medicare?

•••

HOW ABOUT FIXING the speed bumps on Owen Road at the U.S. 23 entrance? My shock absorbers can’t stand much more of this torture.

•••

JESUS GAVE HIS life for the church of the Bible. Not Romney’s church or any other manmade church that is not found in the Bible. But I will take Romney; he is the lesser of two evils. Far lesser.

•••

I SEE THAT Obama is making a big deal about Romney carrying his dog in a dog carrier on the roof of his car, yet Obama had his dog flown to Europe last year at the cost of taxpayers. I would rather Romney carry his dog on top of his car than have Obama’s dog get a paid vacation to Europe.

•••

I CANNOT BELIEVE how this LeRoy Street construction is ruining my life.

•••

I WATCHED THE online Peerbackers video requesting that Fentonites help LaFountains raise $1 million to reopen Fenton Cinema. Seriously? If you don’t have the capital to open it, what makes you think you can keep it open? We’d be better off giving money to a non-profit or church.

•••

I WAS THINKING once LeRoy Street is complete, we should have a cruise or something down there to get people in those businesses. We need them to survive too! Let’s do it for LeRoy.

•••

IS THIS THE zenith of our local government failing us?  Silver Lake Road has been dug up for water main problems 20 days after its grand re-opening.  You would think Fenton would learn from the North Road fiasco.

•••

IF YOU’RE IN the LK-1 Zoning area for Runyan Lake and continue to feel the need to detonate high explosives at unusual times, please stop by atop the ridge to the north of you and explain yourself. I think that you will be able to find me.

•••

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!

•••

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.

•••

HOPEFULLY, AMERICANS ARE smart enough to see through the claims that the rich should not pay more tax because they are job creators. Bush passed two huge tax cuts for the rich resulting in total failure. Upon his departure, we were losing 80,000 jobs a month.

•••

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.

•••

TO THE PERSON who said, ‘Read your Bible to cherish all herbs, just don’t abuse them,’ I have searched 20 different •••

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.

•••

GM HAS INVESTED mountains of money and pushed innovative, lean 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?

•••

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.

•••

I JUST WATCHED on TV about the most dangerous road on earth. It was a mountain road in Peru. 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.

•••

DO YOU ALL remember this date — Jan.3, 2007? During President Bush’s presidency, congress was taken by the Democratic Party. That’s when USA’s financial hardships occurred. So I wouldn’t be blaming Bush for all of America’s problems, it was the Democrats that caused it.

•••

THE AUGUST EDITION of Money magazine pointed out that the vast majority of millionaires made their money through hard work and education. These are the people that Obama would like to punish by taking away their money and transferring it to people who did not work hard.

•••

I THINK THE city should be aware before they pass a law to allow chickens in the city that the feces dust of chickens can cause eye damage and disease leading up to blindness. I know this from personal experience.

•••

SINCE YOU CAN only have three chickens, the chicken lady’s neighbors should have three and let her kids take care of them and take the eggs. If she were my neighbor, she could put chickens in my back yard.

•••

WHEN ARE YOU people going to realize that Barack Obama is not the only person to point your fingers at and blame for the state of this nation’s economy? There are people in congress who insist on putting roadblocks and obstacles and special interests above the interests of the middle class.

•••

SINCE THERE ARE two sides to every story, would the director of the Linden marching band please respond to the Hot line posted in Sunday’s edition about how the alumni were ‘blatantly disregarded’ by the director? Seriously, you graduated from high school, get a life and move on.

•••

I WOULD RATHER see a dog in a cage on the top of a car than on the platter of a dining table.

•••

DOES THE NATION really want another administration like the Bush/Cheney days? We already got rid of one spoiled rich kid, don’t elect another.

•••

I GOT A cat at Adopt-A-Pet and I just love him. There was another baby cat there, and I wonder if anyone else adopted him
