‘Best go read your history, millennial?’ Thanks for the advice, boomer, who didn’t go to college and apparently has no idea what a sweatshop is.

Spotted two beautiful wood ducks while walking along the river.

The Rock’s Night of Hope was a beautiful event in downtown Linden. It was wonderful to see so many people gathered to enjoy children’s activities, community resource materials, music and encouraging faith-filled words for Linden and its residents. Good, positive events like this bring light and hope to a hurting world.

***

If you are relying solely on mainstream media for factual news coverage, you are being deceived. Sad, but true.

***

THE UAW DOES not have time to strike. Union workers still owe the American taxpayers $10 billion for the bailout and saving their jobs. Get back to work and start paying down your way overdue debt.

***

WHERE HAVE ALL the true Democrats gone? They are now Socialists without any values, standards, or morals. They are alienating Christians, married heterosexuals, males and Caucasians. Their plans and proposals will destroy our democracy and America. Trump is all about America first and the best president we’ve had.

***

WHAT ARE YOU talking about? Trump always used non-union labor for his buildings. He absolutely does not support the UAW. Conservatives historically have opposed unions. Democrats showed up to march this strike. Republicans didn’t.

***

I CAUTION US not to lose sight of the direct assault on our democracy by a foreign power and we must discover the truth about everything our president has done.

***

THE ‘400’ BILLS proposed by Democrats in Congress are largely frivolous bills that knowingly would not be passed. The do-nothing Democrats have spent all of their efforts trying to block Trump and have not passed the US-MCA trade bill, or immigration reform, infrastructure plans, or drug price lowering plans.

***

PRESIDENT TRUMP’S RALLIES focused on our economy (best in 50 years), low taxes, most jobs ever for all groups of Americans, as well as support for the border, law enforcement and infrastructure. The Democrats, meanwhile, were discussing how to ‘enforce’ gay marriage at all churches and universities in America.

***

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY has morphed into the Progressive/Socialist party, anti-religion and military secularists. They ignore immigration laws, disrespect the Constitution, religious liberty, law enforcement, hard-working, middle class Americans, taxpayers and families, and babies (with abortion at any time).

***

SINCE THE HOMECOMING parade was cancelled due to weather maybe the city can use the money they are saving to fix the side streets, which are an embarrassment.

***

AN ALDI’S GROCERY store in the area would be nice. Aldi’s has working human cashiers to wait on you, but you still have to bag your groceries, which I don’t mind doing to save money.

***

I READ THAT Holly Academy charter school went to Lansing to protest the governor’s veto of the increase in spending to charter schools. I wonder how much that trip cost and who paid for it.

***

THANK YOU FOR informing me about Trump’s salary.

***

WE NEED TO get out of the Middle East and defend our borders.

***

I HAPPENED TO be by an electronic car charging station installed by the state of Michigan. When you plug in your car a diesel generator starts up to charge the car. You don’t have to be too smart to stay away from electrics.

***

YOU HAVE TO wonder how the wealthy survived in the 1950s when the top marginal tax rate was 91 percent for all income over $200,000. It would be outrageous imposing an 8-percent tax on every dollar of net worth above $10 billion.

***

THE UNITED STATES position was ugly created by Trump. Turkey and the Kurds were both allies to the United States. Turkey is a member of NATO. The Kurds are forced to appeal to the government of Syria for help. Thus, they will ally with Russia, Iran and Syria. Syria was invaded by Turkey.

***

I REALLY LIKE how the Fenton big-box store looks now. Wider aisles, brighter lighting and lots of self-checkout lanes. Now if only they would work on their customer service.

***

HUMAN RIGHTS (HOUSTON Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey) vs. Business (LeBron James and Trump). Choose human rights. Money is not king.

***

THE DEMOCRATS NEED to stop complaining about our President. The facts are, the budget is nearly balanced and the Middle East is stabilized. Meanwhile our friends and champions of the sanctity of human life (Putin, Kim Jong, Crown Prince) have our backs. Real allies.

***

SOCIAL SECURITY IS only taxed up to $129,000 of a person’s yearly income. It’s effectively a tax on lower earners. Raise the amount that can be taxed to $10 million per year as rich people have most of the money anyway.

TRUMP TAKES ONE dollar for salary? I guess you all have your blinders on. He is the president who lives in the White House for free. All expenses are paid by taxpayers. Just like owning a business, I take a very minimal salary and buy everything through the business so it’s a business expense.

***

I GREW UP with UAW parents, uncles, friends and neighbors, and thank them for contributing to our benefits and workers rights. The unions, however, are also responsible for the demise of AC and other GM sites and the movement of over 60,000 workers from Flint to Mexico and China.

***

THE SOCIALIST/ DEMOCRATS debating last night conveyed the following messages: No plans to grow the economy, serious plans to grow the government, massive tax increases on hard-working, middle class Americans, implementing multi-trillion dollar give-away programs and an un-workable, ill-fated Medicare for all health plan.

***

NOW THE UAW wants to increase the production of gasoline powered vehicles in the U.S. and have electric vehicles produced in Canada and Mexico. I guess they should have thought about that before donating to the Democrats in 2016.
