THE AR IN ‘AR-15’ rifle stands for ArmaLite rifle, after the company that developed it in the 1950s. ‘Assault Rifle’ is a political term created by the anti-gun left to ban semi-automatic rifles in the 1980s.

***

THE RIDICULOUS 10-YEAR millage proposal will be soundly defeated. What shouldn’t happen is to allow our city leaders to slightly change it and keep bringing it back until it is passed. Council, do not allow this to happen or we will recall you. We are already taxed to the breaking point.

***

FENTON RESIDENTS SHOULD overwhelmingly support the millage change proposal. We all have to drive on the roads. We need to support our community and our new thriving downtown that attracts so many visitors. There is always a price to pay for progress.

***

SOME OF YOU people might need a break from the internet. Go take a walk or something. Look at a cloud or a bird. Pet a dog. Stop pretending your political opinion means anything.

***

HAVE I MENTIONED how much of an upgrade Andrew Heller is for this paper? Thank you for including him and his rational yet funny voice.

***

PUT DOWN YOUR game controller, put on your nice, soft shoes, take a walk outside and enjoy the gorgeous, crisp fall afternoon. And, you can always stop by and pick up a copy of the Times.

***

BILL CLINTON WAS the one who ramrodded NAFTA through, which has really hurt the working people of this country.

***

TO THE PEOPLE who lick their fingers when playing cards at the Loose Center, that is very unhealthy. Where are your manners?

***

TO THE HOT-LINER who’s excited that our city council transformed our town into a vibrant and exciting city, I do think about decades ago, I stayed in Fenton for a reason. If I wanted to live in a city, I would have moved there years ago.

***

ASSAULT OR MACHINE nail gun kill? Once again, no they do not. People kill.

***

NO ONE IS changing the subject to the flag and patriotism, when you kneel during the national anthem; you are doing just that, disrespecting the flag and everything it stands for.

***

THERE’VE BEEN 900 shooting deaths since Las Vegas, not one involved a butter knife, a kitchen knife, a butcher knife hatchet, and axe. Granted, only bad people shoot other people but it makes it easier for bad people to do it.

***

I CAN’T BELIEVE how lazy people are not to use their turn signals. It’s not that hard. It’s the lever on the left-hand side of the steering column. Use it.

***

TRUMP’S SUPPORT IS down to 38 percent. Nixon’s support after resigning was 29 percent.

***

FACEBOOK SAID ABOUT 126 million people saw the ads on the site that were bought and paid for by the Russians. It’s not a far stretch to say that at least a few million were swayed by those ads. This is extremely concerning.

***

LIKE MANY residents I will have to sell my home and move away from Fenton if I see the super-millage pass. Problem is that if it does, the value of my house and every other house in Fenton will immediately go down due to the tax increase. Either way, most of us will be screwed.

***

YOU MISUNDERSTAND ME. I’m not impressed with John Kelly now. Before, I thought he would have made a better president than Trump. But he’s such a kiss-up to Trump, that’s why I’m not impressed.

***

THE M15 IS a military assault weapon. The AR-15 is a semi automatic that looks like the M16. However, it can be converted quite easily for about $50 by the addition of a bump stock. It’s made to kill.

***

IS ANYONE GOING to acknowledge that Lee Harvey Oswald’s name is on the CIA memorial wall? It’s not there. That’s been debunked many times. Look it up by some reputable site.

***

IT’S NICE TO see Foster Childs finally wrote a column that’s in line with his thought process. A bunch of gibberish.

***

IF YOU MADE a turn signal look like a cell phone, more people would probably use it.

***

PUERTO RICAN RESIDENTS are in a dire situation. Hurricane Maria ravaged their entire nation and their government is having difficulty providing the basic needs of water, electricity, medical care and education. It’s part of the responsibility of the federal government. They are American citizens who need help now.

***

IT APPEARS FAR too many federal judges are forgetting their constitutional law class. It clearly states Congress will enact laws. The judicial branch will enforce laws. Judges shall not make laws from the bench. It violates the Constitution.

***

I CAN TELL you right now President Trump’s disapproval numbers are huge, biggest in history.

***

DEMOCRAT CHUCK SCHUMER wrote the law for the Diversity Immigrant Program, which allowed terrorists, like the one in New York yesterday, to come to our country and kill Democrats like De Blasio shut down surveillance programs, which would have helped the FBI.

***

WHAT IF RUSSIA placed pro-Trump comments on Facebook and Twitter, knowing the comments would be traced back to Russia, in order to attack Trump?

***

TO THE HOT-LINER who thinks there should be more growth in Fenton. Have you noticed they all want a tax break? They don’t pay taxes but expect to receive all city services, which you and I are paying for. Ever try to drive down Owen or Silver Lake Road between 3 and 6 p.m.?

***

HOGAN ROAD IN Fenton Township is a road for buses. Is the bridge really safe for all the bus weight?

***

SHAME ON THAT neighbor for stirring up trouble for the family with the goats. I would bet they make better neighbors than barking dogs or roaming cats, or people who can’t mind their own business.

***

BRIDGE ON HOGAN is fixed! A steel plate is over the hole.

***

YES, THE LIONS lost again, but let me educate you. The seats were not empty. I attended last Sunday’s game and from what I saw, it was a sell-out. Granted they were mostly Steelers fans, but you should be called out on your BS.

***

IF YOU DON'T support Trump policies then you should refuse to pay less taxes under his newest tax reform. Continue to allow your hard-earned money to be given away to immigrants, the career-unemployed and welfare professionals. Put your money where your mouth is.

***

LEE HARVEY OSWALD’S name is not on the CIA Memorial Wall. Gullible people like you are what is wrong with America.

***

SO, I GUESS if you live in Fenton you can ignore city ordinances unless someone makes an inquiry. I knew I should have gotten that horse.

***

IF PEOPLE DIAPER goats to travel with them, maybe if they were diapered and kept in the house no one would have ever known. Domestic pets are usually kept in the house, correct?

***

DEMOCRATIC POLICY is corrupt at all levels. Can you imagine the corruption if the thieving, lying darlings of the Dems, the Clintons, had won the election? That’s why I switched to the Republicans.

***

EIGHT MORE Americans slaughtered, eight more families grieving — all due to leftist policies such as the ridiculous Diversity program that allows low IQ, Middle East psychopaths to migrate to America. It could happen here just as easily.

***

AS A MINORITY from Fenton, I am embarrassed to tell people that this is my town. Fenton residents use the Hot lines to spew selfish, close-minded, uninformed opinions that have lasting impacts on the younger generations who read them. You have two ears and one mouth; use them proportionally.

***

WHY DON’T WE have any roundabouts in Fenton? They just redid Poplar Street and traffic is still terrible.

***

WE’RE ALL KINGS and queens and vagabonds.

***

MUELLER IS A Republican. Republicans appointed him, Republicans led the Russia investigation. What is the problem Trump?

***

GOVERNOR SNYDER DECREASED taxes, rebuilt roads, added jobs — what a joke. You must be one those zombies watching the fake news. He has not lowered taxes for us. He’s raised fees on everything, done nothing for the roads and the 400,000 jobs are due to the auto industry recovery.

***

ISN’T IT FUNNY how the fake Fox News and their pundits report very little about the Russia investigation indictments?

***

CHICKENS, SNAKES, PIGS and now Nigerian goats. How about any and all livestock, reptiles, etc. Try purchasing a farm with fences somewhere.

***

SAY IT WITH me. Hillary lost the election. She’s irrelevant. Obama and his policies have been reversed. So what is the new reason nothing is happening to help the middle class? Maybe look at businessmen who want to help the rich.

***

IF YOU LIKE Pina Coladas, or getting caught in the rain. If you’re not into yoga, if you have half a brain. If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape, I’m the love that you’ve looked for, write to me and escape.

***

TO THE PERSON who claims Lee Harvey Oswald’s name is on the CIA Memorial Wall. Why don’t you check your facts before writing your incorrect statements as if they are fact. There are no names on the wall. The names are in a Book of Honor and Lee Harvey Oswald is not there. Look it up yourself.

***

WHO CARES THAT Kevin Spacey is homosexual? No one. So when he issued his ‘apology’ for what was essentially felony child molestation, he tossed in that he chooses ‘to live as a gay man,’ as a way to distract from the allegation. Therefore, under liberal rules, he is now a good guy again and there will be no retribution. Welcome to liberal logic.

***

GOVERNOR SNYDER HAS decreased taxes? You have to be kidding. He raised the taxes on retirees, license plate fees, gas taxes and more. His pressure on Flint to reduce expenses led to the switch to Flint River water and poison the citizens. Quit making statements as if they are facts.

***

THE PERSON WHO claims that Oswald’s name is on the CIA’s wall of honor is wrong. There are only stars on the wall. These brave Americans, who died for their country, remain unnamed to protect their families and other CIA agents.

***

THE DIVERSITY BASED lottery system for immigrants was designed by Chuck Schumer and the Democrats. It protects sanctuary cities and allows illegal immigrants to get a driver’s license. The Democrats are the biggest problem we have in our country.

***

THE SCAMMERS ARE at it again. I just got a call from the IRS number (502) 370-3350. It comes from Georgetown, Kentucky. It’s all a scam so don’t fall for it.

***

I DO NOT understand the value of the NFL. They pay no federal income tax. The taxpayer gets to pay 70 percent of their stadium, and now they have a lawsuit against them for the concussions. I wonder who’s going to get to pay for that.
