PLEASE DON’T VOTE based on political commercials with lies and half-truths, exaggerated headlines and party talking points. Watch the debates, read the whole news article, check the facts, evaluate your circumstances and opinions regarding the financial, social and security outlook for your community, country and globally. Be an informed voter.

TO WHOEVER FOUND my fiancé’s wallet at Walmart of Fenton and returned it to the customer service desk with the $100 bill and all other personal documents still there, God Bless you! May only positive karma come to you in your life! Thank you.

•••

SCHOOL HAS BEEN in for three weeks. I’ve already been visited two times for fundraising projects for Holly Academy (charter school). Why do they need so many fundraising projects? Charter schools are privately owned, public supported. Do they really need a grand piano? The kids are being used.

•••

THE GOP WANTS the Obama folks to stop using Romney’s gaffes against him. Seems like Republicans don’t have a problem screaming their ridiculous chants of ‘We built it’ though. What a bunch of hypocrites.

•••

BASICALLY, ONE ISSUE dominates the coming election: who will run this country, the rich or the middle class? Our Founders were clear on this and wrote a Constitution that based their faith in the common man. How far we’ve strayed from their intentions!

•••

I SEE IRAN now has a nuclear power submarine — courtesy of Russia. With Iran very close to having, if not already having a nuclear weapon — how does everyone feel about our safety in the U.S.? Why is Obama being so passive toward these factual threats?

•••

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS stated that he will create a stronger middle class. First, he will raise taxes on everyone, then when all phases of Obamacare kicks in, 90 percent of the middle class will fall into the working poor. That makes that 10 percent left, standing in tall cotton. Voilá.

•••

TO THE PERSON who said, ‘Read your Bible to cherish all herbs, just don’t abuse them,’ I have searched 20 different versions of the Bible and cannot find that passage.  Could you help me locate it, please?

•••

THIS COUNTRY DIDN’T have immigrants before they took it away from the indigenous Indian tribes. It was stolen from the Indians and they were forced and beaten to speak the English language. In all actuality, we should be speaking their language. Numerous Indian tribes pick a language other than English.

•••

ANYTHING IS BETTER than the current regime. Heck I’d vote for Pat Paulsen if he were running, but the only person that would make a difference is Romney/Ryan. Why is Obama allowing America to fund the Muslim Crazies — Libya, Pakistan, Iraq, Iran, Eqypt? They all have Black Gold!

•••

A DEMOCRAT IN Michigan will always be a Democrat. They have no intention of changing or voting Republican, even if their Democrat president screws with their pay. They chalk it up as a much-needed evil to fix the economy, then whine about paying high taxes. Accept your consequences.

•••

FENTON COMPLAINS ABOUT the LeRoy Street construction and what are you going to do about it? Absolutely nothing. Complaining doesn’t get you anywhere. Time to start impeachment process on the mayor, that’s where the final buck stops. The mayor is ultimately in charge of every project Fenton undertakes.

•••

THE TRI-COUNTY Times is working on a story about young or not so young adults who have moved back in with their parents. We would like to find out what it’s like to move back home, the positives and negatives, and if you have any advice for others considering this type of move. If you want to be part of this story, e-mail your contact information to news@tctimes.com so that a reporter can contact you.

•••

NOTICE HOW THE oil companies are trying to stop Proposal 3 so all the energy dollars go to them? Vote yes!

•••

TO RESTORE AMERICA, the Rs win: Remove Obama. Reduce the spending. Reduce the debt. Reduce the taxes. Reduce the size of government. Vote for Romney/Ryan and return to the Republic for which we stand, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. God Bless America!

•••

IT IS FRIGHTENING to think that a large percentage of people will vote for Obama based on his appearances on The View and the Letterman show, rather than getting the facts, which prove that he is both unqualified and unfit to lead this great Republic. God help us all.

•••

U.S. AMBASSADOR CHRIS Stevens died from smoke inhalation. The Libyans you saw were dragging him to a hospital.

•••

WAKE UP AMERICA! President Obama thought he could wave a wand and offer America change. How many changes has he really given America? Very few. He spent most of his Presidency blaming all the problems on President Bush and has done nothing to fix them.

•••

OBAMA – ‘BIN LADEN is dead. Al-Qaeda is crippled.’ But on 09/11/2012, Al-Qaeda operatives conducted a terrorist attack on sovereign American soil and killed our American Ambassador to Libya. Obama has not addressed the American people with this potential act of war. In 01/2013, Obama’s $500,000 automatic defense cut jeopardizes American security.

•••

DID YOU STRUGGLE financially last year? Do you think Obama understands your struggles? Last year 2011, the American taxpayers spent $1.4 billion on everything from staffing, housing, traveling and entertaining for the Obama family. They live like royalty, as Americans struggle. That’s just wrong.

•••

MY BROTHER TELLS me everyone in America can buy Obamacare for $75 per month. Here’s the question: What do they value most — cigarettes or healthcare? I venture to say they won’t give up their luxuries for Obamacare. That’s the nature of Man. You will be forced to buy.

•••

MAYBE LINDEN CITY Council should just focus on bringing back the Summer Happening downtown and filling in potholes! Good job ‘Linden City Council Developers Inc.’ and special thanks to ‘Ray Culbert Investment Group’ for your expertise in toxic properties.

•••

WHO HIRED THE NB I-75 repair crew from Troy to Holly? Wasted money. It’s nice that they work at night but maybe they need better lighting so that they can see what they’re doing. The fixed road is bumpier than it was before they touched it.

•••

SOMEONE ONCE ASKED ‘where are the police?’ They’re not at the doughnut shop. Check the unemployment line. Mayors and city council members hold us hostage in order to get tax increases. Blame them.

•••

HAVE YOU HEARD Madonna lately? She needs to shut up and sing. The bottom line is, I don’t want politicians telling me what I should watch or listen to, nor do I want a musician telling me how to vote.

•••

THE UPGRADE TO LeRoy Street was worth the wait!

•••

I’M TELLING YOU, No Muslim president is going to go against any Brother Muslim with any kind of military force. It isn’t going to happen! That’s why Obama doesn’t care if Americans die or not.

•••

LET’S ASSUME OBAMA is correct. Evil rich people like Romney can and should pay more taxes. Once the government taxes all they have, and still will not address government spending, who will be next in line to ‘pay their fair share.’ Stop Obama now, or you will be next.

•••

HOT OFF THE press — The SAT reading scores are at their lowest since 1972. Why? We pay more for cars and have improved quality. We pay more for TVs and computers and have better quality. The list goes on and on. We pay more for teachers and get?

•••

I WOULD LIKE to nominate the ‘Let the People Decide’ ad campaign for the most deceptive BS award. One man and his money should not be allowed to have so much influence.

•••

To the idiot who wrote he was a Democrat, works for government. I am in the private sector, you know, the ones that make the money that pay for your cushy government job that has had raises over the past few years. I have had my wages frozen already for years. Time for all you government working moochers to start paying your ‘fair share.’”

    Don't be confused about voting to the point where you are turned off. Obama wants to keep people confused and uninformed so he can "transform" America completely into Socialism. This is a fight between Good and Evil and perhaps the last chance we might have to prevent total collapse of our country and loss of our liberties by such an evil "transformation". Believe in America.....do your duty and vote! Thank you.

    Blaming the teachers for low reading scores on SATs, Really? Maybe if Parents spent more time with their children, most kids learn how to read or interpret prior to attending Kindergarten. Look in the mirror before you accuse other people! And NO I am not a teacher, just tired of people placing this nonsense blame on them!

    To each and every one of you Michiganders that is riding on Romney’s coat tail. You mean nothing to him, look in the mirror, you are 1 of the 47 percent that he doest care about. Believe me I would like to see a change. But to let the big 3 crash and burn, only tells you of he’s character! That’s why I’m voting for the lesser of the 2 evils.
