My wife and I are retirees in our 70s who recently received our $2,400 stimulus payment. We’re on a fixed income from Social Security and annuities. We do not need the stimulus. We are giving most of it to various charities and worthy causes. I would urge others similarly blessed with continuing income to do the same.”

A huge thank you to our military. They sacrifice so much for us. Deserts at 120 degrees, camping in tents and holes for us, and what do we do? We whine. Can’t shop. Can’t have parties. Can’t go out to eat. Well, I think all of us should spend just 30 days in the life of a soldier. Quit whining.

I absolutely love being home with my family. A very sad situation going on in our country, but a much needed ‘time-out’ for this family of four.

AFTER RETURNING FROM trying to find toilet paper again, I am confused. It has been some time since the major rush and now everyone is limiting it. If the companies are still manufacturing it, why is it they we cannot seem to find any at all when you go to the stores? Where is all this TP going?

IF YOU FEEL like hiding away in your house after this ‘stay home’ order is lifted, you go right ahead. The rest of us will start living our lives again. Freedom, baby. That’s freedom.

THIS KILLER VIRUS has been a wake-up call to me. I am getting myself in shape and living the healthiest life style I can. I don’t want to be high risk anymore. I’ve even quit smoking.

THERE IS A ‘hidden crisis’ endangering millions of American lives. It is fact that 90 percent of the most commonly used generic drugs are made in China. Only 7 percent are actually inspected by the FDA, and there are lax inspections of unregulated drug factories in China and India. Critical shortages are possible.

WOULDN’T YOU HAVE to be tested for the coronavirus every day to know if you are really infected? Getting tested just once, and testing negative, would give you a false sense of security because the very next day, you could encounter the virus on something you touch.

MANY PEOPLE IN the Fenton area were really sick with bronchitis type symptoms in January. Treatment of Z-Paks and steroids were prescribed. Some people were worse off than others were. Should these people be tested for antibodies to see if they had coronavirus? Are these tests available?

CAN YOU IMAGINE how much cleaner and clearer the air is with most cars and planes parked?

***

IS IT JUST me or is there a valid reason I don’t understand that Republic Services cannot pick up yard waste? Is the coronavirus lurking in leaves, grass or pine needles?

GOVERNOR WHITMER IS abusing her power. Whitmer is using COVID-19 as an excuse to take away our rights. It’s time for a recall.

***

SORRY NANNY, WE are not all in this together. You can keep that totalitarian nonsense for yourself. America was founded on principles placing the individual above the collective. As such, my liberty is more important than our health. I reject Whitmer’s police state.

MICHIGAN AND FLORIDA have implemented different plans to reduce COVID-19 deaths. Michigan’s plan has severe restrictions exceeding the federal guidelines. Florida’s plan uses federal guidelines plus targeted intervention with the most vulnerable groups. Current death rates per 100,000 of each state’s population are: Michigan - 28.13, Florida - 4.3.

I FIND IT most interesting watching people capitulate in times such as these. Ergo: Since they have us surrounded, they cannot get away. We have them right where they want us.

***

TO THE PEOPLE calling everyone selfish, take a good look in the mirror. Restricting everyone’s behavior to accommodate your fear is the height of selfishness.

***

HEY GOVERNOR, GET a grip. COVID-19 is not a matter of life and death, it is a matter of life and .05-percent chance of death.

***

CONSTITUTIONAL QUESTION. HOW can you conduct a petition drive to recall the governor if she will not allow you to leave your house?

***

GOVERNOR WHITMER HAS done us a favor. Whitmer has taught us what it’s like to live under a Communist dictatorship.

***

TO THE HOT-LINER bragging about Linden softball victories. Get real. You got lucky and had a couple ace players move in from out of district.

***

I’M CURIOUS AS to why people, who are driving alone in their car, are wearing masks. Also, if you’re outside taking a walk I don’t believe you need to be wearing a mask. I understand wanting to be safe but stop being dumb.

***

NO SHIRT, NO Shoes, No Mask, No Glove, No Service.
