LET’S SET THE record straight. President Obama did say ‘you didn’t build this’ and meant it exactly as it reads. I listened to the whole speech and Obama made it clear to his liberal audience that government and the unions were responsible for success and growth of any and all business ventures in America. In the Obama world, government is God.

•••

THEY TALK ABOUT taking away a driver’s licenses for older folks. Well, we are not the ones speeding, running red lights, talking on cell phones and texting while driving so let’s put the blame on the right people. I see people running solid red lights all the time. Think about it.

•••

I HOPE ALL you Republicans can open your eyes long enough and listen to Romney and Ryan really close. Do you really think these two are in touch with reality and what we need for the United States?

•••

IT WAS OUR first time at the Applefest on Saturday and it will be our last. I can’t believe the number of rude and nasty people there. A grown man ‘nudged’ my 11-year-old out of the line and most of the booths were disorganized and poorly run.

•••

IF ISRAEL IS so worried about Iran’s nuclear power, why don’t they take care of it themselves instead of crying to the United States?

•••

THE HOUSE PASSED a ‘No More Solyndra Act’ with bipartisan support but it’s expected that Harry Reid, the Senate Democratic majority leader will not bring it to the floor for a vote. Just like he refused to bring the 20-some jobs bills passed by the House, up for vote.

•••

I’M SICK AND tired of our country giving my tax dollars to any other country but our own. They kill our soldiers with those dollars.

•••

SUGGESTION FOR FUTURE school bond issues and millage increases. Make it a law that a school bond issue can only be presented to the voters one time per year. When the issue is rejected by voters, it will keep appearing until it is passed. When it passes we never get to vote it down again, a ridiculously out of balance system. We just did it again in Fenton. Vote no in November.

•••

NOTHING IS EASIER than finding fault. It requires no brains, talent, no thinking to engage in fact-finding.

•••

PRESIDENT OBAMA’S FOREIGN policy continues to be one of appeasement and apology. History reflects plainly that this approach has never worked and never will. Reagan said it best, ‘peace comes through strength.’ I will add, especially in the Middle East where appeasement is considered weakness and that weakness is interpreted as national vulnerability.

•••

JUST WAIT AND see how many jobs America is going to lose when the full force of Obamacare takes effect! Besides, jobs created didn’t come from the President, they came from businesses.

•••

OBAMA IS ONE of our most remarkable presidents. His Presidency will go down as historical. He has reversed the disasters he inherited despite the opposition.

•••

I WOULD SURE like to know what universe you are living in as all of our rights are slowly being taken away from President Obama. How does it feel like living on the Plantation? You like receiving handouts from the government?

•••

YOU ALL COME from immigrants. How dare you look down upon immigrants, this country was built by them. We cannot make English our official language because we are by nature the Great American Melting Pot, something we used to be proud of.

•••

WELL, I PREFER a quarterback that can look over the line to his receivers. I guarantee when he goes pro, he will never be a quarterback. Oh and it is the quarterback’s responsibility to be the leader of the team. There is no I in T-E-A-M!

•••

IT AMAZES ME how most Hot lines about politics are based on opinion, not fact. Educate yourself before you vote.

•••

PRESIDENT OBAMA WILL eventually be accountable for his actions to God! Oh wait it will be Muhammad!

•••

DOES ANYBODY KNOW what brand of breakfast sausage or who made what was served at the Applefest pancake breakfast? They were delicious and I would like to buy some.

•••

HEALTH CARE COST is killing us. U.S. health costs are approaching $3 billion, consuming 50 percent of government revenue. We spend excessively on people with no quality of life. We provide very little to those who can benefit more but aren’t fortunate enough to have insurance. It’s wrong.

•••

DID YOU SEE President Obama passed another law forcing the autoworkers to build a more efficient vehicle, which will be added to the cost of a new car? Another $11,000? What’s next? Forcing America to buy those cars and outlaw every used car everyone owns!

•••

I believe this might fall into the ‘pest control’ area, which is licensed. For all the reasons you don’t want to be exposed to pesticides, ditto for weed control.

•••

IT IS INEVITABLE that America will be at war with Iran, and if Obama is still in office, it will be his responsibility to get us out of it, even though he said he would side with the Muslim Brotherhood.

•••

LET’S REVIEW MUSLIM terrorists’ video cutting off the head of a U.S. citizen — Obama says unclench your fist and we can be friends. We make a fictional movie, France makes cartoons — and they storm embassies and kill more U.S. people. Vote Obama out.

•••

OBAMA IS A Socialist. He is on record for redistributing your money to others. Socialism reduces your and your family’s freedom to choose. Romney is for capitalism. This means you must earn / work for money and keep most of what you earn. Freedom or Socialism? Vote Nov. 6.

•••

IS IT JUST me, but why are we paying so much for cable television to watch nothing but advertisements one after another. I think its time to get me an antenna.

•••

DID YOU HEAR the great news? More than 1,200 jobs lost across Virginia, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Coal mines — thanks to Obama and his EPA thugs, coming to your area soon, much higher electricity prices and higher taxes for unemployment and food stamps.

•••

ONCE AGAIN, THE Applefest Road Race organization was a mess. Posted times for packet pick-up and late registration were 6 until 9 p.m. on Friday. Rush to get there at 8:45 only to find they closed up early. Shame on you.

•••

THE LEROY STREET project is a big joke that I don’t find very funny anymore.

•••

I CANNOT VOTE for the Marxist in office but the Republicans seem to think that spending money on undeclared wars is what we should be doing. I just want a candidate who believes that we should eliminate all these government programs and end all these undeclared wars (Ron Paul).

•••

I FOR ONE am happy to see the Holly PD chief’s position vacated. Perhaps now we can return to having a department that is well run and giving our great officers the leadership they deserve.

•••

I KNOW MY family did not stay at Apple-fest near as long as we do when there are wristbands. Guess they don’t factor in the money you spend on food, drink and other diversions while the kids are on the rides. Prices were not family-friendly this year.

•••

IF YOU BELIEVE in the redistribution of wealth are you a socialist? Of course. Out of his own mouth.

•••

I HAVE BEEN watching the Holly Police Department situation play out in the paper, seems to me she was a nice person, but being nice does not mean a person is competent in their chosen career field, regardless of what that field is.

•••

IF A PERSON is in their early 40s and has been in a profession for 20 years, has worked at four different places, been fired from one place three times, another place one time, what does that say about how that person works.

•••

TO THE ‘POLLS don’t lie’ person. NBC just admitted that on one of its last polls showing a big lead for Obama, they polled 30 percent more Democrats than Republicans. Pollsters know how to make a result come out the way they want. Beware of the main street media.

•••

THE MIDDLE EAST is burning with American troops, government representatives and Israel in the middle of it. Obama has chosen to minimize the current events, deflect any responsibility from his foreign policies and put off any action until after the election. We cannot trust his foreign or domestic knowledge or actions.

•••

BETWEEN WHAT HAS happened in Holly with narrow minds running off Mr. Lambert and the police chief, I am about to give Holly a no confidence vote after three years of living here. Smalltown of small minds, sad indeed.

•••

NEWS FACT — POVERTY in Michigan up 17.5 percent from 2010 to 2011. President Bush, what did you do now? Oh, sorry, Romney what did you do to make this happen? Oh, my gosh, my error. Who the heck is in charge here?

•••

AWESOME! SIX MILLION middle class will pay a tax, penalty, fee, etc. to the Obama Care Fund, on average $1,200. Yes, once again, Obama is successful in his agenda — to fundamentally transform America. Let’s give him four more years. Got to love ‘free’ healthcare.

    We enjoyed the Applefest. The races need to be marked out a little better and the core-ter mile race was a little more unorganized than years past. They used to break the kids up into groups from youngest to oldest so the little ones didn't have the risk of getting run over. We still had a lot of fun and realize that it is run mostly by volunteers and will be back next year. Of course, we never waste our money on carnival rides. We would rather go to Disney or Cedar Point for amusement park rides. Oh....btw...my daughter and I loved the apple dumplings that were new this year! Hope you bring them back next year. :o)

    OBAMA IS ONE of our most remarkable presidents. His Presidency will go down as historical. He has amplified and prolonged recession into a depression, made the U.S. weak, ignored Consitutionality, and seduced the mindsets of his followers and drones while perverting military standards and customs.. Truly historical. YUUUCK!

    Use to love going to the Applefest but its become apparent its all about how much the church can make now. How about offering wrist bans for people? Who can afford to ride more than a couple rides. I can go to Cedar Point and pay $40 and ride HUGE rides all day and night. Come on St. john's.. Quit being greedy!
