YOU KNOW WHEN it would have been brave for Meryl Streep to speak out? Twenty-five years ago when she knew what Weinstein was doing. Coming out now, doe-eyed and feigning surprise, is superb acting. She was silent about it for over two decades. Hypocrites all.

***

CREATIVE, MASTERFUL, apropos, delightful. These are just a few of the words that describe the wonderful sculpture that was donated. Thank you, Hagermans. It is a great landmark and I smile every time I go by it.

***

THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY that once gave us Jimmy Stewart, John Wayne, Ronald Reagan and so many other wonderful American patriots is now dominated by sick liberals who are child molesters, perverts, and sex offenders like Roman Polanski, Woody Allen, Bill Clinton and now Harvey Weinstein. Sick, sick, sick.

***

FENTON LEADERSHIP SHOULD have thought about fixing the roads before giving millions of dollars to out-of-towners who are now making a killing. We paid for it and outsiders are reaping the benefit. Vote ‘no’ on millage.

***

WHAT A FUN and significant gift from the Hagermans to the city. But I ask the city and the DDA; please let’s put a nice gazebo over the sculpture. It’ll last a lifetime the way it is, but let’s protect it a little more.

***

IT SURE WOULD be nice if people would learn to drive around semis instead of cutting them off and blaming the truck driver.

***

HOT-LINERS, RING in here. My wife is a wonderful successful woman, terrific mother, lots of kids. I’m cleaning the floor, she’s sitting around reading the Times.

***

SO LET ME get this straight, you’re saying that Fox News doesn’t have people altering the news and they have an agenda?

***

THE PERSON WHO’S trying to defend Trump over the San Juan mayor, look up the word decimated. Look up the word island. They have nothing there. What are they supposed to rebuild with? If you don’t have anything to rebuild or food or water, what are you going to do?

***

OUR ELECTION SEASON will soon be upon us and I just want to remind everyone that our system works through the concept of popular vote. The majority vote wins. Not voting for the most popular person. I’ve seen enough celebrities. Take a look at the people and consider their merits.

***

I AM BURNED out by football. One of life’s distractions has been distracted by politics. What’s next? Baseball? Basketball? Hockey? Auto racing? It’s all going to get ruined.

***

ARE YOU KIDDING, I just paid $288 for a license plate tab. Why? This is just another tax disguised as a license plate purchase. I’m sick of the deceit and theft by government.

***

ACCORDING TO ANALYSIS by The Washington Post, Donald Trump has made 1,318 false or misleading claims in the past 263 days.

***

LIBERAL HYPOCRISY ON display again. It’s perfectly fine to kneel during the national anthem, but how dare the vice president express his personal opinion by leaving after seeing people kneeling? It’s OK for them to kneel, but not for Pence to leave?

***

LOGIC? YOU DON’T have any logic. Assault weapons are made to kill people. That’s why it says assault. When they come up with assault fertilizer, assault cars, assault airplanes with bump stocks maybe they will boycott them or ban them.

***

WE CAN MARK this day on the calendar between the first day of autumn and the first day of winter. Today, the first day of furnace.

***

WHETHER YOU DIDN’T like the outcome of the election last year, or you did like the outcome, either way remember, your local vote speaks louder. Just a few more weeks away. Vote, vote, vote.

***

LOOK UP AT the beautiful colors in the trees. Look down as they fall on the ground. Look out, the snow’s not far away.

***

IT’S NICE THAT the city’s fathers share the accolades of a new street and a beautiful statue and lots of flowers and paver bricks. My road has not been paved for over 25 years, and State Road is so bad, it’s going to break a school bus. When is that road going to be replaced?

***

THE HARVEY WEINSTEIN scandal, one of the biggest scandals to hit the news was not reported on NBC. This is why intelligent people are watching Fox News. They generate an audience that is more than double NBC and CNN combined. Get smart, people.

***

I’M WAITING FOR Budweiser to bring out a special can showing the NFL salute, the clenched fist with the black supremacy movement.

***

THE HARVEY WEINSTEIN situation is a perfect example of Hollywood, left-wing media and left-wing political hypocrisy for hiding the situation from the public and protecting Weinstein.

***

WOULD THE HOT line people please tell me what the ‘Dreamer’ is they keep referring to on TV? Is it about immigration? Thank you for your courtesy. Editor’s note: Dreamers are recipients of the DREAM Act, an acronym for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act.

***

I SEE MOTHER Nature took part of the tree that Lake Fenton schools own on top of Jennings Road. Are you going to finally cut it down before it kills somebody?

***

DONALD TRUMP’S ICE cream. Impeach-mint.

***

AS LOCAL GOVERNMENT continues to get squeezed, one of the many things that is sacrificed is police and fire. This has resulted in general chaos on the roads. One of the apparent fixes is going to be the self-driving car. Sad to think one day we’ll probably lose this because of the lack of self-control.

***

SECRETARY TILLERSON’S assessment of Trump is correct and also applies to Trump’s base. His base relied heavily on lies, rumors, and innuendo, resulting in the greatest sucker election ever.

***

A BIG THANK you to all those who helped with homecoming weekend festivities. Without you none of this would have been possible.

***

BIG TIME MOVIE producer has been accused of three rapes, molestations and numerous occasions where he exposed himself. And that’s all so far. No wonder he gave so much money to Bill Clinton. They’re like twin brothers from different mothers.

***

A BUNCH OF rich entertainers insulting our active military and our veterans? I’m done with the NFL.

***

WITH ALL OF the restaurants in the Fenton/Linden area, why couldn’t one of them get the recipes for the original Frank’s Tavern fish and chips? Maybe even hire one of the cooks from their restaurant. A guaranteed menu pleaser.

***

JUDGE GREGORY S. Ross, do humanity a favor and step down from the bench. You have no common sense or ability to assess the impact of your recent ruling in the ‘Tiffany and child’ situation. Shame on you.

***

IF YOU DON’T like walking your kids along a 55-mph road then next time buy a house that accommodates your needs better. You are your own keeper.

***

SO THE NRA is accepting of the idea of eliminating bump stocks.

***

IF I’M BENT on evil and want to commit mass murder, I don’t need a gun to do it. What do the gun grabbers fear about gun owners? What are they planning to do to our country?

***

WOW, IT’S ABSOLUTELY perfect. What a beautiful gift to honor Fenton’s history and charm. I love it.

***

FENTON VOTERS I beg you not to allow our city to increase millages from three years to 10 years. I can’t support my family as it is because of all the taxes. Please vote ‘no.’

***

I’LL ASK AGAIN. Why in God’s name is that railroad light, the one before the actual traffic light, operational when there is no train coming?

***

THE JOB LOSS report this month reported that for the first time this month in seven years, we’ve had job loss. Look at who’s president right now. Impeach this guy.

***

HEY CITY OF Fenton, go ahead and raise the liquor license fee. Who do you think is going to pay for that? The consumer. We need to clean house like we did in Fenton Township.

***

FOOTBALL IS, AND always has been, stupid and a waste of time. Get a life people.

***

ONE OF THE tenets of our country’s founders was freedom from tyranny through excessive taxation. Here in Fenton, the number of restaurants and establishments needing liquor licenses have grown tenfold. To King George Fenton, don’t raise those fees, lower them. The free market and level of competition demands it.

***

HANNAH, YOU WROTE a wonderful article regarding carrying laws. I enjoy reading your work but you left out one typical category. No personal experience. I invite you to the range sometime. I’m certified and trained. I’d love to have you out on the range.

***

ALL NUISANCE TAXES, including license plates, will continue to rise due to Governor Snyder’s delivery of the largest tax break ever to GM, Ford and Chrysler. He claimed the elimination of property tax levied on ‘small business’ would create jobs when it actually gave a break to the big three.

***

ASK YOURSELF THIS. Where did Trump and Pence stay when they were at Puerto Rico. Did they spend the night? I think not. Not good enough for them? Then it’s not good enough for the rest of American citizens. Get some more aid in there.

***

WHO DRESSES ME? Here, the day staff does the laundry. My valet lays out the clothes. When I travel, I have a personal assistant. At one of my other homes, it’s the staff. At the island in the Caribbean? You don’t need clothes.

***

WHEN ARE THEY going to learn and have Lake Ponemah Mobile Home Park shut down as a public nuisance?

***

MONDAY IS COLUMBUS Day. I hope you people have discovered your turn signals and your courtesy when driving.

***

MORE HEROIN WILL solve the heroin overdose problem. More income inequality will solve the income inequality problem. More gambling will solve the gambling addiction problem. More guns will solve the gun violence problem.

***

YOU DID A story a while back about the Holly water litigation and there’s a lot of us here in Holly that would really like you to do a follow up so we know what’s going on with our water.

***

THE LEFT IS still complaining about affirmative action. Who’s been discriminated against for the last 50 years? People who are white are passed over for so-called oppressed people.

***

THIS MORNING, THE six insurance companies that are dealing with Obamacare have announced an average of 45 percent increases in premiums. This will also be accompanied by increased deductibles and less payouts.

***

OUR LAST THREE presidents gave billions to North Korea. It gave us failed policies regarding this country. Don’t forget the billions that Obama gave Iran. President Trump inherited this mess and is wise to act tough.
