‘‘I would like to thank our paper delivery person for being very observant, noticing the bird nest in our TCT box and kind enough to place the paper on top of the box. Nice to see someone so aware.”

‘‘I think it’s an outrage that we repave White Lake Road when Runyan Lake Road is in such poor, unsafe condition. Please call the road commission. Let’s put pressure on them to get it redone. It’s 40 years old and past its lifetime.

‘‘Paddleboarders are hard to spot? Maybe you should look better or not have the front of your boat so high in the air that you can’t see 20 feet in front of you.”

‘‘A heartfelt thank you to the three gentlemen who helped us push our car to safety on Saturday, July 18 at the stop light on Silver Parkway close to VG’s. Warms our hearts especially during this unusual time. We will return your favor by helping out others when we can. Thank you.”

HOW DOES MY wearing a seatbelt help ‘everyone’s safety?’ Seatbelts only help the wearer avoid serious injury and that’s reportedly about 45 percent of the time. They have nothing to do with the safety of others. The verdict on the actual effectiveness of masks (except N95s) is still out.

I WON’T LET a tyrannical government tell me what to wear on my body. I hope other hunters stand with me this fall and refuse to wear blaze orange. It’s my choice. I’m tired of being controlled.

DEAR MR. PRESIDENT, when you signed on as our commander in chief, you agreed to be a leader for all the American people. For goodness sake, put on your ‘big boy pants’ and lead.

***

TO THE PERSON who said wearing masks is like wearing seatbelts because it’s to protect others. What? How does it protect anyone but myself when I wear my seatbelt? Try again.

TESLA IS MOVING to Texas. I wonder why. I will bet Michigan was not on the list.

U.S. POLITICS WAS bitterly partisan long before President Trump’s election. Don’t blame him for political division. Trump is simply beating Democratic and Republican politicians at their own game.

***

WELFARE AND SOCIALISM are not the same thing. Social Security, Medicaid, food stamps, SNAP, unemployment, public housing, public education and corporate tax advantages are all forms of welfare, not socialism.

***

THE CURBS AND drain outlets on the main streets of Linden have not been cleaned, debris over every entry and it’s about to rain again. DPW get to work so we don’t have flooding problems driving on our streets.

***

SEATBELTS ARE DESIGNED to protect you. You have a 50-percent chance of surviving an auto vehicle when you wear a seatbelt. However, if a semi-truck runs you over, goodbye.

***

I SUPPORT SCIENCE, which supports wearing masks.

IN RESPONSE TO ‘Sixteen million people out of work.’ Do you recall jobs were plentiful? Manufacturers are coming back. COVID-19 put us under. Rioting and looting in large cities is not because of our President Trump.

***

TO THE HOT-LINER who won’t vote for Trump. Good luck with Biden, Pelosi, AOC and the rest. I suggest you read the history of communism and revolutions. There has been only one revolution that was good for the common person. It ended in 1776. Think about it.

***

THE REASON DISEASES are becoming more resistant is because we’re becoming more resistant to them. They adapt. We should delay the inevitable (resist disease) and not let the inevitable come after us.

***

IF YOU THINK wearing a mask is a ‘slippery slope’ that will lead to you not having guns, maybe you shouldn’t have them.

***

FAUCI MAY NOT be an expert, but he’s the smartest person we’ve got. I trust him.

***

YOU ASK FOR mail-in ballot. The township sends form to sign. You mail back. They in turn send a ballot. You check boxes and then sign and return. They check both signatures. Where’s the fraud?

***

ARE WE CREATED equal? Are we born equal? Are we educated equal? Do we have equal opportunity to purchase housing? Think. Answer silently and honestly in your heart and mind.

***

IN A DECEMBER 2019 study, Federal Reserve researchers concluded that Trump’s tariffs ‘have not boosted manufacturing employment or output, even as they increased producer prices.’ Moody’s concluded in Sept 2019 that the trade conflict with China has reduced unemployment by 300,000 jobs. Yeah, the greatest president ever.
