‘‘It’s 2020 folks. How is it still acceptable for neighbors to walk their dog for the sole purpose of defecating and urinating on neighboring properties? Here’s a thought, allow your dog to defecate and urinate on your property and then take your walk. How uncouth.”

***

‘‘Every person I know was willing to stay home to ‘flatten the curve,’ which we did. Most hospitals are nearly empty. Good job everybody. Now, let’s get back to our lives and not bankrupt our great country.”

***

‘‘If we want the pandemic to go away, I suggest the following. Cut the salary of all government leaders to $700 a week and they will find all the answers real quick. And the arguing will stop.”

***

TO WHITMER ADMIRING hysteric, ‘decisions based on data and science’ is a mere talking point. She has no science backing up her decisions. Claims that executive orders saved lives are unfounded. A reduction in infection rate was going to happen regardless. Your ‘disdain for dollars’ puts families into poverty.

***

AT LEAST FIVE states already mail absentee ballots to every registered voter, and there is no data to suggest that practice has made their elections less secure.

***

IF ANYTHING IS taken from the quarantine and at-home orders, it’s that we do not need to be traveling as much for work.

***

A COUPLE OF years ago, the Tri-County Times had a recommended list of books to read. I finally got to one on my long list, ‘Tangerine’ by Christine Mangan. Four/5 stars. Thank you. It was a great read.

***

HOW CAN YOU be so sure that our governor has saved lives when you don’t know what would have happened if she didn’t pull her stunts?

***

SOMEONE MAILED IN a joke about Pelosi working to prevent voter fraud. Just the same as her trying to keep out illegal aliens.

***

TWO MONTHS AGO, we willingly gave up our freedom to fight COVID-19. Now, we are fighting our politicians to regain our freedom. Whitmer has become drunk with power and has disregarded our first amendment rights. It’s time to take our rights back and recall the power hungry Democrats.

***

WONDER HOW GOD feels about elected bureaucrats taking over His role. Seems to me that many people have slowed down and started to think about the important things in life. Like God, family and country. Maybe a spiritual awakening is happening across our nation. We’ll see.

***

TRUMP IS A nationalist who wants to make America great again. Democrats are globalists who want lots of people exactly the same, except themselves.

***

IS IT A surprise to anyone to see that it is mainly blue states that suffer the most during this crisis?

***

WHITMER IS A run of the mill standard centrist Democrat. She is not a socialist. You have no idea what socialism is.

***

NON-CITIZENS CANNOT vote. They are not allowed to. Verifying the fact that you are a citizen is part of registering to vote. No one is trying to allow them to. You are parroting lies you hear.

***

OREGON HAS BEEN voting by mail for a long time and it works perfectly fine. Conservatives are opposed to it because it means actual hard working Americans would be able to easily vote.

***

BOOMERS INVENTED PARTICIPATION trophies, handed them out to their kids and now blame their kids for getting them.

***

VOTING BY MAIL leaves a paper trail. This is America. Everyone who’s eligible to vote should be allowed and encouraged to do it.

***

I’D LOVE TO see Anthony Fauci voted as Time magazine’s Person of the Year.

***

HERE WE GO again. Argentine Township said McCaslin Lake Road would be chlorided by Memorial Day weekend. Nothing. Should have been done a month ago with the incredible amount of dust. What a shame. We can’t even sit in our own yard without needing a N95 mask.

***

I DON’T KNOW about the rest of the women out there, but I’m starting to look like a werewolf. Spas are essential.

***

I SHALL CONTINUE to exercise all of my constitutional rights, including the Second Amendment, and will decide for myself where, when and if I mask up. You wear yours and you’ll be fine. Those women from Michigan only have the power I surrender, which will be none.

***

‘DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE.’ We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Unlike you, I try to know what I am talking about.

***

WE THE PEOPLE of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, ‘promote the general welfare,’ and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States.

***

THE HOT-LINER who claimed the governor is in violation of state law needs to read the emergency Powers of the Governor Act of 1945 PA 302, as amended, MCL 10.31. The Governors Emergency Powers were upheld by the court recently, as any sane person knew it would have been.

***

WHITE HOUSE JUST approved giving AstraZeneca (a British company) $1.2 billion of our taxpayer money to develop a vaccine. What happened to Trump’s ‘Buy American’ rhetoric? He must have some millionaire buddies over there.

***

THERE ARE TWO types of people in this world: 1) Those who can extrapolate from incomplete data.

***

UNLESS YOU BREW your own beer (alcoholism), refine your own sugar (diabetes), mine your own salt (hypertension), grow your own tobacco (lung disease), and impregnate yourself (teen pregnancy), then yes, every public health issue is spread person to person, just like your dumb virus. Who’s ignorant now?

***

WANT PROOF WHITMER is ruining lives: 1) Father of nine, Calvin Munerlyn, murdered while enforcing mask order, 2) 25 percent of Michigan’s workforce out of work, 3) 1.8 million Michigan students out of school, and 4) 1.3 million Michigan unemployment claims in the last six weeks. Believe it now?

***

WHITMER ONLY HAS power if we all listen to her bogus orders. Stop obeying unconstitutional orders. The sheriffs in Livingston and Genesee counties say they won’t enforce her orders (not laws). The state police can’t arrest us all. Let’s open up, Michigan. This evil ‘woman’ can’t stop us.

***

LOVE THIS QUOTE from Ohio’s governor. We in Ohio can do two things at once, wear a mask and re-open a business. Clearly, Whitmer doesn’t believe that of Michiganians.

***

DO YOU THINK Whitmer is that stupid to think it’s a good idea to put COVID-19 positive patients in nursing homes? Or do you think she’s trying to increase the numbers so she can keep us locked down? Either way she doesn’t deserve to lead this state.

***

IS THERE ANYTHING worse than weed whipping your side of a chain link fence when your neighbor doesn’t do their side? Just asking.

***

WHITMER HAS NO understanding of or empathy for how the shutdown is impacting the Michigan citizens.

***

SO, WHITMER’S HUSBAND makes special request to have their boat put in the water in Elk Rapids area (Traverse City) ahead of everyone else. Coincidence that Traverse City area is re-opened for holiday, I think not.

***

IF YOU BELIEVE that Whitmer is not a tyrant please read the First Amendment of the U.S .Constitution. If you still think she’s doing a good job you’re in the wrong country.

***

FIRST OF ALL, it was 418,000 deaths over six years. Second, no one goes into war saying casualties are worth it. You go into battle hoping for very little casualties.

***

GOVERNOR WHITMER, I don’t like some decisions you have made but still admire you for your leadership — tough job.

***

THERE IS NOTHING to fear but Whitmer.

***

IF WE HAD disregarded science, we’d still be gathering vegetables and shooting animals to survive. It’s true that each new discovery often raises more questions. The quest for answers is what has driven our technological advances. How do you think computers came about? Through magic?

***

SO DRIVING IS a privilege? Who tells us that, oh yeah the government. Try pursuing life liberty and happiness without an auto and license. You accept driving as a privilege but you claim others as rights. Who decides?

***

GREAT MEMORIAL DAY. Too bad it had to be in Ohio. I got a nice haircut had a nice sit-down meal at a restaurant. I got a great deal on some beer and pop without any deposit.
