OBAMA WAS TALKING about Congress going on recess until after the election when he said, ‘Instead of worrying about you, they’d already gone home to worry about their campaigns.’ This from our President who was campaigning during and after our embassy was attacked and the Ambassador was killed by Islamic terrorists.

•••

TO ALL THE people renovating their homes along Main Street in Fenton, Saginaw Street in Holly and Broad Street in Linden, your homes look amazing! Thank you for keeping the charm in our towns and for putting time into making your homes look beautiful.

•••

A RECENT HOT LINE scolded conservatives for their ‘angry behavior.’ Before you judge, take a moment to watch Bill Maher or Lawrence O’Donnell and you will see where the anger comes from. I am a staunch liberal, but recognize that the over-the-top liberal media is responsible for much of the anger that pervades politics today. It’s a shame.

•••

ALL RETIREES, I received my BCN Advantage pricing for 2013: monthly premium increased 23 percent. Co-pay for 90-day prescription increased 100 percent, $100 to $200. At this yearly increase in another four years, health care will be unaffordable! As President Obama robbed Medicare to fund Obama-care, sorry I will not be voting for you.

•••

IN 64 YEARS, from Roosevelt to Bush, there have been 108 Executive Orders issued. In 40 months, Obama has issued 923. Lady Liberty is weeping as he chisels away at our freedoms. Are you afraid yet? I’m terrified. Google this information if you don’t believe it. We need change now.

•••

WHAT DO YOU mean, ‘new president elect?’ You can’t win an election before it happens and besides, Obama will win re-election, as he is leading in Ohio. If Romney loses Ohio, it will be almost impossible to win.

•••

YOUR VIDEOS ARE WONDERFUL and really add to the news stories, especially the one at the fire in Byron.

•••

I’M NOT AN Obama fan, but please be truthful. Obama never said he would side with the Muslim Brotherhood. This comes from a false e-mail that has been circulating for years.

•••

REMINDER — PLEASE TAKE the time to read up on Frank Marshall Davis before you make up your mind on giving Obama four more years. He was a major influence on Obama. Please make a factual, informed decision and vote Nov. 6.

•••

TO THE PERSON commenting on the confusing proposals on the ballot. Beware of voting ‘no’ on all of the proposals. Oftentimes a ‘no’ vote actually is a ‘yes’ vote; just a deceitful way to get what they want. Read carefully.

•••

I WOULD LIKE to thank the ladies who left a beautiful solar light on my daughter’s grave in Holly with a card. Your random act of kindness is appreciated after her grave was vandalized. I only wish I could thank you in person, you are angels on earth. God Bless.

•••

I AM A Democrat in Michigan and I imagine I always will be a Democrat. But, I did not vote for Obama in the last election and will not in this one. I’m probably in the minority but I won’t vote party lines for people I have no confidence in.

•••

TO THE PERSON in Linden, Fourth of July was three months ago! Listening to a fireworks show every night of the week prior and since isn’t entertaining. Don’t you have better things to spend time and money on? Please show some respect to your neighbors.

•••

FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS please remember that we are all Americans. I am not an Obama fan but he is our president. For now anyway.

•••

TO THE LADY in the white SUV blocking the street in front of Radio Shack on Monday afternoon. I made the comment you were blocking the street, you followed me to Kmart parking lot and left a note on my vehicle that I was rude. You’re the rude one.

•••

WHY WON’T THE railroad company come and clean out their culverts that are causing Buckhorn Lake to continue to rise? The creek is drier than it has ever been. This has been an ongoing problem this year with flooded basements, underwater wells, docks and septic fields. How clean is the lake now?

•••

TO THE TRASHY mom in the yellow sweatshirt at (local retailer) on Monday. Your little boy doesn’t deserve to be yelled at and treated like garbage. If that’s how you behave in public, I wonder what happens at home. You don’t deserve to have that child.

•••

‘OBAMA – FORWARD’ is his slogan. This is a textbook example of a first rate oxymoron.

•••

ROMNEY MADE A FOOL of himself by disrespecting our Commander-In-Chief at the debate.

•••

KELLY, THANKS FOR being so honest. You returned my purse that you found, God Bless.

•••

OBAMA COMPLAINS THAT Romney wants to take us back. Of course, back to a booming economy, 4 percent unemployment, $2 gas, AAA credit rating, and balanced budgets. Oh yeah, and the federal government off our backs.

•••

WITH PEOPLE LIKE David Axelrod and Stephanie Cutter in his corner, it is beyond obvious Obama condones people who intentionally misrepresent the state of this country, not to mention the ongoing lies from the mainstream media. After last night’s debate, my choice is now clearly Mitt Romney.

•••

DEBBIE STABENOW IS running for Senator for another six years. Think hard. What has she done for us in the last six? We’re in trouble and she’s just not getting the job done. Vote smart — anybody but Debbie.

•••

AFTER WATCHING THE Lion’s game, which was an absolute disgrace, the team’s coach should be fired. I’m done with them, I’m not wearing my Lions’ stuff anymore.

•••

COMING UP U.S. 23 into Fenton and the highways are extremely clean. I see white garbage bags everywhere. It must be Sheriff Pickell’s crew that’s picking this stuff up. Whoever is doing it, kudos to them! Thank you.

•••

LEROY LOOKS JUST beautiful. I can’t understand all the uptight people that had such a struggle driving this summer. There were always two lanes open and it was never a problem. When did we get so spoiled and grumpy?

•••

ONE LITTLE DEBATE shouldn’t sway your presidential vote. Ask yourself, who really cares about the middle class people? I think the answer is clear.

•••

RECOVERY IS HERE! Meijer to add 12,000 U.S. jobs, 6,000 in Michigan — yes! Oh wait, those will only be seasonal and more than likely part-time $10/hour jobs.

•••

WEDNESDAY’S DEBATE SURE dispelled the myth that Obama is one of history’s great debaters. I think that if Romney keeps doing well in the next two debates even Obama will vote for Romney. I can only imagine what Paul Ryan will do to Joe Biden next week.

•••

NEWSFLASH TO ARROGANT Republicans, everyone has a bad day once in a while. Romney may have just edged our president in one minor discussion, but there is a lot of time for a lot to happen before the election.

•••

FOR EIGHT DAYS, President Obama lied to us. It was not a terror attack. It was spontaneous, not planned.

•••

I HONESTLY WAS shellshocked watching the debate. I thought I had firmly made my mind up, but now I am questioning my decision. I will be sure to watch the other three debates, especially the VP debate.

•••

WHEN WILL YOU all wake up? Politicians always say they want to ‘tax the rich.’ What they don’t say is — once we tax them, we’re going after the rest of you.

•••

ARE YOU PLANNING to vote ‘no’ on Proposal 6 (the bridge proposal)? If you are, you are voting to not put it on a ballot so you won’t have the opportunity to vote for or against it. Very confusing proposal.

•••

‘ASK STUDENTS OR teachers in classroom however, and you’ll only hear praise.’ This quote was taken directly from last week’s article on Fenton’s IB program. I am a Fenton teacher, was never asked my opinion on IB, and can’t seem to find any other teachers that were asked.

•••

OBAMA HAS ISSUED 923 executive orders in 40 months. What has congress been doing all that time?

•••

I WAS GLAD to see an article about Fenton’s IB program this week. I have two children in the Middle Years Program and love what they are learning. I think having an IB school is a great asset to our community and is valuable to our children.

•••

I WATCHED THE DEBATE and felt that President Obama held his own against a very disrespectful Romney. Doesn’t matter who is more articulate, Obama will still win in November.

    Obama has issued over 900 Executive Orders? Cite your source. As of September 25, 2012 the American Presidency Project lists only 138 he has signed. Please...cut the propaganda.
