TIFFANY OLIVERIO, SO wonderful to know you’re okay. I witnessed your accident and knew it didn’t look good. I prayed for you and often wondered how you were. I lost my 23-year-old granddaughter to a car accident. Enjoy life to its fullest.

***

TO KNEEL, OR not to kneel, that is not the question. The question is whether kneeling during the national anthem does anything to combat police brutality or advance the cause of racial justice or call for paternal accountability from black men. It does not.

***

ALMOST ALL OF nature shows us predator success is not primarily the skill or finesse of the predator, but the ability to detect the weakness and vulnerabilities of its prey’s surroundings. Stop being the prey.

***

JUST READ A notice from the Readiness Program of Fenton schools prohibiting celebrating traditional holidays in the classrooms in order ‘to never exclude someone due to their beliefs or practices.’ Immigrants are supposed to assimilate into the American way of life, not change it to fit theirs.

***

IF YOU’RE AN incumbent and are expecting my vote, you are sadly mistaken. There have been far too many critical errors in this town over the last four years.

***

I HOPE TO see the Clintons fitted with a new set of clothes soon. Orange, where they belong, all three of them.

***

DID THE PERSON who said that they would vote for Snyder again bump their head? With the Flint water crisis cover-up, all the taxes and fees that he has raised he has to be one of the worst Michigan governors ever.

***

IF YOU REALLY want to get technical, it wasn’t Columbus or Vespucci who discovered America but the Vikings nearly a half century before.

***

DDA CAPTURES MILLIONS of tax dollars to allegedly improve our city so that out-of-towners and big box chain stores can enrich themselves while we foot the bill for better streets to lead the sheep to their restaurants and undertaxed stores. The millions of DDA dollars could easily have paid for our road improvements.

***

ONCE AGAIN, THE conservatives lie. The Weinstein scandal has been on every major network since it broke. Every major network and newspaper. If you haven’t seen or heard it, you’ve got your nose stuck in Fox News and you only know the lies they told you.

***

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL fall weekend. Does the calendar lie? Is it only two more months until the first day of winter?

***

YOUR BRAINLESS ARGUMENT doesn’t mean a thing. What do you think AR stands for in AR-15? Automatically Ridiculous?

***

I’M NOT IMPRESSED with your claim that you’re well trained and know how to use your gun, not unless you’re police or have been in the military.

***

I HAVE LIVED in Fenton for 25 years and I have discovered that Fenton is the most clique-ish town I have ever lived in. Unless you grew up here, you are ostracized and ignored.

***

HOW DOES ‘YOUR Ride’ stay in business when they are constantly late all the time, either picking you up or taking you back home?

***

I SEE THE NFL is gutless and is doing nothing over players giving the black power salute. I wonder how fast they would be stomped on if someone gave the white power salute and waved the Confederate flag.

***

UNTIL YESTERDAY, I was impressed with John Kelly. Now I see he’s just another one of the President’s yes men.

***

I WANT TO voice my objection to the proposed hunt on the sand hill cranes. They are a wonderful bird and we enjoy watching a couple in our area here. My wife and I are totally opposed to it. Everyone should contact their representative and voice their objections.

***

THE NFL IS an embarrassment. Players kneeling, giving the black power salute, disrespecting our country, disrespecting our national anthem.

***

LOVE IS MY religion.

***

WE ARE THE champions. It’s time for women to stand up and put a stop to this mayhem that’s happening in our country, nobody agrees with anything. Come on women, we know how to deal with this. I don’t care if you’re a Republican or a Democrat, just stop doing this.

***

STEVE BANNON IS an embarrassment to this country. I can’t believe Trump brought him to the forefront where we could see this idiot.

***

CAN ANYBODY SAY where in the United States is the weather year-round beautiful like it’s been here the past week?

***

WE GOT A bumper crop of black walnuts this year because they didn’t produce the last two years and the problem is I’ve got my neighbor’s tree, too. If anybody wants some, I’ll be happy to give them to them.

***

WHERE ARE THE skilled trades workers? Don’t blame the kids. Businesses stopped apprenticeship programs creating a shortage in hopes of bringing in nonunion labor from foreign countries. As one CEO bragged, ‘you’ll no longer train union members.’ Nothing is better than when school is mixed with training over four to five years.

***

TRI-COUNTY TIMES voters, if you noticed the last election surprised all of the polls. If you remember that election, you’ll remember the next one and vote, vote, vote.

***

MICHIGAN HAS ONE of the highest taxes in the United States and you want to vote for Rick Snyder? Give me a break.

***

IT SEEMS LIKE the empty storefronts should keep up with the landscape to make it more appealing for new businesses to come in.

***

THE TERMS ‘CORE values,’ ‘sense of worth,’ all summed up, I consider it my personal sense of power.

***

THE SUMMER OF ’65 there was a song about what the world needs now is love, sweet love. I believe that’s true. Our whole world needs love and a little understanding.

***

BASICALLY, ALL THE political Hot lines are saying is ‘you’re all devils and my side are all angels.’

***

NOW THAT THE real Russian scandal is out in the open, I wonder how long it’ll be before Hilary and Bill both get measured for new jumpsuits. DOC orange.

***

IT’S TIME FOR a change at city hall. We need to get rid of the ‘good old boys.’ They’ve been in control for too long. Allow the will of the people to be heard. No more backroom politics.

***

IT SEEMS LIKE the conservatives are supposed to be nice, moral Christian people, yet they get nasty and judgmental when they want to.

***

YOU’VE BEEN HEARING for a year about how President Trump colluded with the Russians to steal the election. Now it turns out the only people who colluded with the Russians are the Clintons, to sell uranium.

***

IT SURE WOULD be nice if the police would look for more people not stopping at stop signs.

***

THE PROBLEM WITH all the gun laws that we’re making is decent people with guns are good people. The people who create problems with guns don’t care what the law is.

***

REGARDING THE CALLER that took to task the San Juan mayor asking for more assistance and expecting more from the federal government. The Hot-liner showed his ignorance when he blamed the people. Puerto Rico is in debt and has poor leadership. They are a territory of the U.S. and are citizens.

***

WE NEED TO have some kind of common sense regarding guns. It’s unfathomable that Congress outlawed automatic weapons, yet makes it legal to buy kits that turn a semi-automatic into full automatic. No one wants to take away the right to have guns but we’ve got to have some common sense.

***

I SEE THE man who tried to blow up a plane in Detroit last year said his rights are being violated for religious and dietary reasons. The only right he deserves is to be executed.

***

EVERYONE MUST GET out and vote no on Nov. 7 on the proposal that says Charter Amendment Proposal No. 1. The city wants to change the charter to read they can ask for higher taxes for a 10-year period, instead of the three years.

***

WE NEED MORE growth in Fenton to bring more tax revenue. Continue to develop downtown and Silver Lake Village and other areas where development can occur. Like it or not, Fenton is a city.

***

SERIOUSLY? I CANNOT believe I saw a car that still had the ‘I’m with her’ bumper sticker on it for Hillary’s campaign.

***

THE REPUBLICANS MADE us a ‘Right to Work’ state, gave lawsuit immunity to the cable companies, killed our 401K, and now the banks have lawsuit immunity. Are they really for the ‘working class?’

***

IF YOUR TAX bill is cut with the new tax plan, do you care who else gets a cut?

***

REGARDING THE PLASTIC bags from the newspaper for recycling, Adopt-A-Pet in Fenton loves them.

***

TO THE PERSON who wrote about who discovered America. Nobody discovered America. ‘Americans’ were already here when Europeans came here. Those inhabitants are called ‘Native Americans’ or Indians. Get your history right.

***

HOW CAN WE get Social Security reform put on the ballot? They need to stop stealing from it and start repaying the $154 trillion plus they took from it.

***

EVER WONDER HOW our politicians can afford several multi-million dollar homes?

***

AFTER READING THIS go to your silverware drawer and dump all the knives into the trash, then take all your hammers, hatchets, axes, tire irons, screw drivers and put them to the curb as all are lethal weapons. Again, guns do not kill people, knives do not kill people — murderers do.

***

TO THE WEDNESDAY post about King’s disrespect for Hollywood corruption. What women did our current President pay off? Hadn’t heard this story, probably because I do not listen to the ‘fake news.’

***

TO THE ROSE Township recycling extremist. Maybe you should petition the township board to select a single waste provider for residents so that we can have the large rollaway bins for recycling, too. Otherwise, mind your own business.

***

I’m tired of reading negative things about the Lake Ponemah Mobile Home Park. A few bad apples don’t spoil the bunch. This is Fenton’s last historic living lot with a little slice of heaven on the lake. We came from poor people that took care of poor people. Consider writing a story about the amazing kids here, such as the kid that went to college last year on a football scholarship.

***

Are any of the NFL kneelers known for spending any time with black youth and lecturing them on accountability with regard to serial impregnation of black women? The social consequences of fatherless black children is a disgrace to their race, their selves and America. Kneel for that and we will respect you.

    The AR in AR-15 stands for Armalite.
