HotLines

‘‘Back to basics. Back to gardening, growing our own food, having dinner with family every day, back to movies and TV at home, back to walking and playing with our pets, back to talking with our neighbors and playing yard games, back to listening to nature. Thank you COVID-19 for the awakening.”

‘As someone who is not originally from this area, I can tell you the people who have lived here for generations with well-known names have shown me more kindness than most of the people I’ve ever met living anywhere. They have more than earned my respect.”

***

‘‘How ironic that someone complaining about a person hiding behind someone’s name is hiding behind the Hot lines.”

We love the Times’ ‘Honoring Our Veterans’ column. I love seeing all of the men and women who have served our country. Thank you Times for doing this.

HEY SOUTH DAKOTA, can we trade governors with you, please?

***

DID YOU NOTICE? All the responses to Twilight Zone Hot-liner were emotion, fear and insults. Not a single fact nor logical argument against Twilight Zone. The entire position of mask wearers is, ‘you’re stupid, shut up, and do what you’re told.’

***

YOU TRUST DR. Anthony Fauci? Great. During an interview on 60 minutes, Dr. Fauci stated, as a COVID-19 precaution ‘people should not be walking around with masks on.’ Time to take your mask off.

***

PADDLEBOARDERS, PLEASE WEAR bright colorful clothes. You can be a bit hard to spot at times.

***

LOOK FOR YOURSELF. Genesee County Department of Health COVID-19 dashboard reports eight deaths from COVID-19 in the last month. Let that sink in for a moment. Why are we still wearing masks?

***

DO YOU REALIZE that wearing a seat belt does absolutely nothing for the safety of others?

***

IF MASKS ARE the solution to our COVID-19 problems, then why in the world did our governor confine us to our houses and shut everything down destroying our economy?

***

PEOPLE SAY IT’S just a mask, what’s the big deal, it’s for public safety. That’s how they condition you. Next, they will take your guns for public safety. Ask yourself, where do you draw the line? Once you give up your rights, you will never get them back.

***

TO THE PERSON praising Fauci. At present, there are no experts on SARS-COV-2.

***

SOCIALISTS THINK THAT all the people in the world should be equal. Since we will never be able to bring all the corrupt third-world countries up to our standards, they are trying to bring us down to theirs.

***

OF COURSE THERE is a spike in COVID-19 cases. We are testing more. It doesn’t matter how many people have COVID-19. What matters is how many people are dying from COVID-19. That’s way down. We are starting to develop immunity. That’s because we are not locked down anymore.

***

HOSPITALIZED COVID-19 patients most likely to show these three symptoms and they are fever, shortness of breath and chest pain.

***

IT SHOULD BE against the law to do a Social Security payroll tax cut. In fact, this payroll tax, along with the Medicare payroll tax needs to be increased on both the employer and employee. To do so will make sure that the future generations will get their share of Social Security.

***

I CARE FOR my children and new granddaughter too much to support Biden. Trump supports law and order, low taxes for hard-working families, good jobs, strong military, police, border security, better schools, infrastructure, and trade and economy. Biden is for high taxes, defunding police and against gun rights.

***

MASK PROPONENTS: IF you’re going to force the issue be sure you’re following proper procedure. Disposable masks are to be worn once and discarded. Cloth masks must be washed after each use and they should never hang from your ear or around your neck. Never touch the inside of the mask.

***

STOP WEARING YOUR masks under your chin, around your neck or hanging from one ear. That is unsanitary and your mask is no longer effective. Plus, you look pretty silly.

***

IF YOU’RE UPSET about how Whitmer has responded to COVID-19, you should move to Florida where they did what you wanted.

***

SIXTEEN MILLION MORE people out of work then there are jobs for, 140,000+ dead Americans, $85 billion a month over-spending, $1.9 trillion tax cuts for corporations, protests in every major city in U.S.A., GDP at 10-year low, manufacturing jobs at 10-year low. No, I won’t vote for Trump.

***

THE ODDS OF winning the lottery are 1 in 300 million. We have less than 300 million cases and there’s more than one person on a ventilator due to coronavirus. Check the facts.

***

WHAT DISTRESSES ME more than a ventilator? Not being able to be with a loved one in the hospital. Not having a proper funeral. No school. Businesses struggling or going under. The percentage of COVID-19 deaths do not warrant this craziness. Something more sinister than the disease is driving this.

***

MEDICAL PERSONNEL, WHY the contradictions? For years, you’ve been saying diseases are becoming more resistant because of our germaphobic ways. More live through COVID-19 than die so why all the hysteria with mask wearing? We are being forced into actions that will bring more disease problems down the road.

***

IF THERE IS a national change shortage, why aren’t stores encouraging us to use it instead of the opposite? Another lie from big brother.

***

BOYCOTT STORES THAT won’t take real money.

***

IN REFERENCE TO the custodian pay for Holly schools. You do realize they are sub-contracted out right? Also, they are only allowed so many hours per week, per building and when I worked there, the elementary schools only had three custodians, at only five hours per night.
