ATTENTION DOG OWNERS. A Burton owner of a husky dog said her dog was stolen from her fenced backyard. Then she received a call from Animal Control. The dog was found and was dying. An illegal Flint area dog ring stole the animal to use as bait in dog fights. Please watch your dogs while they are in the backyard or walk them out on a leash.

DID YOU LOOK at your tax bill? Almost 20 millages we are paying for, most of which benefit Flint institutions. Stop voting for any millage. When you vote ‘yes’ you are saying ‘I want more taxes.’ The word millage means ‘tax.’

***

THE VOTERS IN Minnesota elected a radical Muslim woman to Congress. She hates America, and said so. Not surprising as they also elected a TV wrestler as governor and a comedian as a senator. Someone should check the water in that crazy state.

***

TO THE PERSON who mentioned, ‘The pursuit of happiness is in the Constitution.’ Your point is well taken, however that line is in the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution.

***

I JUST PAID my winter taxes and I counted the number of millages levied on my home, which was 19 millages. The same will be charged on my summer taxes paid in the fall. As my home value is increased, my taxes go up. I may have to sell my home.

***

HAS IT EVER occurred to Democrats that they are electing foreigners, some from Muslim countries, to become our leaders? They openly show their hate for America and use foul language in formal meetings. How could you possibly elect representatives that show so much hate for us and America?

***

GREEN IS THE new dumb. Just read Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal proposal — bars air travel, guaranteed income for those ‘unwilling’ to work and government takeover of economy. No thank you. America will never be socialist.

***

MIDDLE-CLASS WORKERS now pay a higher tax rate than the guy who owns the company. That’s not by accident. It was the point.

***

WE ARE ALREADY paying for 19 millages on our tax bill and you think it makes sense to spend $14 million for a path for people to ride their bicycle on? You’re a special kind of goofy, aren’t you.

***

I KEEP READING ‘inclement weather.’ This is an incorrect term. When we have winter weather it is not inclement. Another incorrect term I have read is ‘Canadian geese.’ They are Canada geese and they are not citizens of Canada. They are Canada geese.

***

A QUICK ANSWER for the anti-Trumper. The Senate needed 60 votes for the funding and Democrats wouldn’t supply the votes needed to make 60. It’s really that simple.

***

TRUMP DIDN’T GET funding when Republicans had control. He’s just showing the Dems’ true colors because it’s not red, white and blue.

***

A NEW REPORT estimates tens of thousands of Michigan residents could lose Medicaid coverage once the state’s work requirements go into effect next year.

***

A QUICK ANSWER from the Trump crowd on border wall funding. All funding bills must be approved by 60 Senate votes. We only had 51 Republican senators for the last two years. Why didn’t Democrats support border defense?

***

DEMOCRAT WANTS TO defund ICE. Sounds like open borders to me. Where is the fake news?

***

CAN SOMEONE TELL me why we should approve a bike path for a ‘projected’ cost of $14 million when we can’t even pay to fix the damn roads?

***

WHEN WILL HOLLY Township do something about the junk yard on East Holly Road?

***

ELISSA SLOTKIN DIDN’T actually say ‘party before country,’ it was a slip of the tongue after which she quickly corrected herself.

***

YOU KNOW YOU’RE a Democrat if you’re a racist, an anti Semite, support illegal activity, want to avoid defending the United States, desire to limit the number of illegals arrested, and support withdrawing the National Guard from national borders.

***

I LITERALLY LAUGHED out loud at the thought a reader would even think that the non-motorized pathway and our crumbling roads are somehow connected to the same budget. I’m looking forward to a great resource that so many other communities have (and with the same road conditions).

***

VERA HOGAN’S ARTICLE on the Saturday Evening Post was misleading. The magazine is still published today six times a year in Indianapolis. Just sayin! [Editor’s Note: See update in Feb. 20 Midweek edition.]

***

IN RESPONSE TO Heller’s comment about gas tax. Snyder raised gas tax in January 2017, which added $1.2 billion for roads and made Michigan the fifth highest at pump tax in the U.S. Vehicle registration was also raised 20 percent. If it didn’t work then what makes us think it will work now.

***

PUBLIC SCHOOLS ARE socialistic, in that the government provides them. So are roads, dams, bridges, airports and seaports. Try to imagine our country without these things, all brought to you by teachers.

***

REGARDING YOUR article on the debacle at the Cornerstone building. All they need to do is to add propylene glycol to the system and it will not freeze. Was this the first building they have ever built in Michigan? I feel like I’m explaining how to open a Capri Sun to a 3-year-old.

***

FINALLY, THE BIPARTISAN committee investigating collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia announced Wednesday that there was no collusion. What a waste of time and money when our legislators could have been using this time and our taxpayer money to do the jobs they were elected to do.

***

MICHIGAN’S SENATE IS giving a historic amount of scrutiny to Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s high-level appointees. Under Gov. Rick Snyder, GOP senators rarely exercised their power to question appointees.

***

WOULD LIKE TO thank my neighbor, Al, who cleared my driveway, along with a bunch of our neighbors. This is what makes Fenton such a nice place to live.

***

IF YOU OPPOSE vaccines, you are too unintelligent to be part of society. Your children should be taken away from you. There is no hope. Your brain is mush.

***

CHUTZPAH, THY NAME is MSM. A man is arrested for attacking a newsperson at a Trump rally. The MSM statement: ‘It is clearly unacceptable for any of our staff to be attacked for doing their job.’ Have you ever heard the MSM condemn anyone who attacks police officers doing their job?

***

‘LIFE, LIBERTY, AND the pursuit of happiness’ is in the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution. Life, liberty and pursuit of property are in Article 5 of the Constitution, as well as Amendment 14 of the Bill of Rights.

***

MR. TRUMP PROMISED the Mexicans would pay for the wall. Please, stick to the promise so my friend doesn’t have to worry about working next week. I believe most people agreed with the wall if the Mexicans pay for it.

***

JUST BECAUSE ABORTION is legal, doesn’t mean it’s always being done in a safe and clean environment. You are naïve if you think Planned Parenthood has a woman’s welfare at stake. It’s about the money. Killing an unborn child will always make me emotional. Guilty as charged for having a heart.

***

A DEPLOYMENT IN the military usually involved many inoculations to protect from strange diseases. Why do we allow caravans of people into the United States without inoculation to the point where Los Angeles now has a typhus epidemic? That disease was eradicated in the U.S.

***

YOU WON’T PRINT this because it’s too radical. Look at who said ‘Trump is a disaster,’ —President and Reverend Jimmy Carter. ‘We don’t need a president who divides us,’ — President Barack Obama.

***

EVERYBODY, CHECK YOUR receipts with a fine-tooth comb before exiting the big box store. A cashier rang up my most expensive item twice. I found out the hard way that you won’t get your money back if you don’t notice the error until you get home.

***

CONGRATULATIONS to City Manager Lynn Markland on being appointed the new president of the statewide association of Michigan’s municipal managers. Keep up the good work, Lynn.

***

IT’S OBVIOUS THAT the huge price increase of road salt has caused Fenton and others to use it very sparingly, but I’m wondering why there isn’t much snow plowing going on. This is pretty bad.

***

YOUR CHILDREN ARE germ factories. Vaccinate or leave them home!

***

IT IS PRETTY funny how baby boomers love whining about ‘participation trophies.’ They invented them to make themselves feel like good parents and we threw them out nearly immediately after they gave them to us.

***

FOR ‘PLENT’O LEFT Outrage.’ Name one Democrat representative calling for the removal of Virginia Lt. Governor with the same rabid outrage they directed at Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

***

GRETCHEN WHITMER IS an anagram for Jennifer Granholm. Michigan is doomed.

***

MORE MONEY, BETTER health and cleaner air? Yes to all. My retirement is great and kid’s college is sufficiently funded. Thanks for asking. Promises kept. If you are failing at all these metrics, be mad at the reflection in your mirror, not Trump.

***

GOVERNOR WHITMER’S GREAT plan to fix Michigan’s roads is for you to ‘take a picture of your damaged car or repair bill and post it with the hash tag #FTDR.’ Brilliant. Roads should be good any day now.

***

IT’S SOMEWHAT AMUSING to see some early tax filers complaining about insignificant tax returns compared to last year. They seem to have forgotten that their withholding decreased and they got more pay and less withholding leading to smaller refunds. The bad thing is that these people are voting.

***

I DIDN’T VOTE for Gretchen Whitmer, but we should at least give her a chance. Michigan has some problems that affect all of us, not just those wearing red or blue.

***

HEY BIOLOGY PROFESSOR, I agree with you. ‘We shouldn’t have to live with someone else’s decision.’ So please stop taxing me to pay for your abortions because of your decision to get pregnant.

***

TO THE HOT-LINER asking, ‘What and who is he for? What’s the purpose of criticizing past presidents?’ Let me remind you, Obama blamed everything for eight years on Bush. And by the way, our President is for all American patriots and citizens, U.S. citizens.
