TO THE HOT-LINER who said ‘inclement weather’ is an incorrect term. What is the proper term for winter weather that is not ‘clement?’

***

REGARDING ‘CAPITALISM IS root cause of all problems in our society.’ I do understand socialism; you don’t. Venezuela was a thriving, prosperous country for over 100 years. It was then taken over by socialism and in 10 short years, destroyed. Just one example of thousands. Study history.

***

WHY IS THE money always there for luxuries we don’t need like butterfly parks and bicycle paths, but for important things like roads they want to raise taxes? Let’s vote all these incompetent Fenton goofballs out of office and start over.

***

PLEASE DO NOT fall victim to mass hysteria; climate change is a hoax. The world will not end in 12 years, the science is not settled (by definition, science is never settled), and it is not immoral to have kids.

***

SO, NOW OUR school districts want forgiveness for snow and weather days? More paid holidays for staff. Administration states they are underfunded to teach students for the 21st century. Really?

***

THE SAME PEOPLE crying about freedom of speech want someone to speak only the way they want them to.

***

UNBELIEVABLE, SENATE DEMOCRATS just voted against providing medical care for babies who survived abortions. This vote included Michigan’s Gary Peters and Debbie Stabenow.

***

AFTER READING ‘STORMY Daniels Full Disclosure,’ I found she’s not selling what wealthy men want most. Trump and all his billionaires are not her customers.

***

THE TRADITION OF checks and balances is steadily being eroded in Congress, which is becoming the rubber stamp parliament. What happens to the Constitution when it states unequivocally that Congress is the only funding branch of government? I guess the Constitution is no longer the supreme law of the land.

***

I WANT TO see the Democrats travel by Amtrak.

***

SMARTEST TEENS? Watch ‘Quiz Central,’ on Saturday, where the ‘best and brightest’ from around the state of Michigan compete. If this is the youth of tomorrow, the country is in trouble. This show is an indictment of the educational system in this country. The seniors were ignorant in all areas.

***

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO mind your own business? So many issues today could be solved if people would have some respect and just mind their own business.

***

SO SOME FOUND Rep. Slotkin showed ‘leftist behavior’ at the SOU speech? I find Elissa to be refreshing, available and attuned to her constituents.

***

SCIENTISTS HAVE HIGH confidence that global temperatures will continue to rise for decades to come, largely due to greenhouse gases produced by human activities. 1,300 scientists from the United States and other countries, forecasts a temperature rise of 2.5 to 10 degrees Fahrenheit over the next century.

***

GLOBAL WARMING DOUBTERS that are frequent flyers should pay attention since weather science is projecting 150-percent increase in air turbulence generating from warming oceans. Happy landings.

***

ANY MAJOR FORWARD thinking metropolitan area I have visited throughout the world (except Michigan) has a major rail and trolley system. These systems are not used just by people going to and from their jobs but to cultural and sporting events, shopping, visiting museums, zoos, and friends in the area.

***

IMAGINE TAKING A train to Mackinaw City and then go to Mackinac Island and not have to pay car parking fees. Or going to Traverse City at Cherry Festival time and enjoying the ride up there in comfort and with the company of our friends.

***

CAPITALISM IS NOT the root cause of all problems in our society. Selfishness is the root cause. Socialism (as shown in history) has the same inherent flaws that capitalism and all other ‘isms’ have, which is the human element.

***

PLEASE TELL HELLER that GM built Flint but the unions destroyed it, not tax breaks.

***

I UNDERSTAND WHAT socialism did to Rome and more recently to Venezuela. Wise up pinko.

***

WHY DO PEOPLE who think they can predict the weather and future changes in the environment and climate have to be arrogant liberals? Why can’t they be arrogant idiots? Because we know that many of both liberals and conservatives think they can.

***

I AM DISAPPOINTED in the attitudes and opinions of the Hot-liners. The first is the subsidizing the community for high-speed rail. Technology improvements to transit are going to benefit some more than others but everyone can use it for whatever purpose they choose. We are the richest country on earth but we are the most broke.

***

I’M GUESSING MANY of those who are ranting against the non-motorized trail are the same people who curse from their car windows at the few cyclists on the roads around here.

***

IF YOU LIKE the service at the VA and Secretary of State, you’ll just love paying for government-run hospitals and medical services for all persons residing in the U.S. Private health insurance will not be an option. Thanks Democrats.

***

THE SO-CALLED ‘pension tax’ affects a lot of people in Michigan. It’s why there’s been so much interest in it since it was passed in 2011 as part of a larger tax reform to reduce business taxes.

***

IF OUR LEADERS seek to conceal the truth, or we as people become accepting of alternative realities that are no longer grounded in facts, then we as American citizens are on a pathway to relinquishing our freedom.

***

SHOPPERS BEWARE. IT may say on sale or clearance but doesn’t ring up as such. This has happened to me more than once. Pay attention.

***

EPA’S OWN STATISTICS show an agency that’s sitting on its hands and giving polluters a free pass. And it’s putting our health and environment at risk.

***

‘CAPITALISM’ IS NOT the problem. You mean ‘crony capitalism.’ That’s when Congress sends out tax money to Planned Parenthood, then Planned Parenthood takes that money and donates it to Congress so they get elected to give Planned Parenthood more money and each skimming off the top. Read the Constitution.

***

AS A PERSON who actually worked for tips and hourly wages in my life, instead of having to learn about it second-hand, I can tell you that most people want to be paid enough to live. A living wage isn’t a gift, it’s a right. Workers are often paid far less than the value they create.

***

HEY CLIMATE FUNDAMENTALIST, move beyond the ‘because I said it’s real’ argument. Move beyond the ‘you’re just stupid’ argument. Either offer some logical, well-thought out points or continue to undermine your own beliefs.

***

GOD HELP US all. Read the actual text of the S.130 - Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act at congress.gov. Don’t fall for the slanted ‘news’ shows on TV. How anyone could not vote to protect an innocent baby who was born alive despite a botched abortion is incomprehensible.

***

HEY! STOP RIDING the brake pedal when driving.

***

EMBRYO VS. FETUS. In human pregnancies, a baby-to-be isn’t considered a fetus until the 9th week after conception, or week 11. The fetal period, on the other hand, is more about growth and development so your baby can survive in the outside world.

***

IF YOU BELONG to any group that discriminates against anyone for race, color, religion, sexual preference, etc., you belong to a hate group.

***

ATTENTION DRIVERS IN rural Holly Township, especially on Falk Road. Please reduce your speed on these dirt roads to avoid deer collisions, especially in the early evening. There is no reason to be doing 50 mph or more on these roads. Remember, it will be a hassle to your life and vehicle, as well if you hit the wildlife.

***

WHO IS PAUL Hassan and why should people be mad at him?

***

TO ‘HEAVEN HAS a wall.’ Good to see you are using Louie Gohmert’s thoughts instead of thinking for yourself. Group think is the kind of thinking that probably led you to believe Heaven is real in the first place.

***

HELLER DOES NOT understand economics. He wants high taxes on corporations, but the companies just pass that on to consumers. Thus he wants to tax all of us.

***

HEADLINE ON WEDNESDAY’S Times said that the federal government is going to send over $5 million to the Fenton area for roads. Looks like Trump beat Whitmer to fixing the damn roads.

***

AFTER TWO YEARS of living under a Trump administration, I very much prefer Trump to the eight years of Obama I lived through. My federal income tax was $1,900 less. Congress has an approval rating of about 12 percent. Trump’s approval rating is about 52 percent. Guess who wins?

***

AFTER READING THE remarks of hate groups, I looked it up and there are no pro-religion or pro-American organizations on their list. There are however Neo-Nazi, White Nationalist, Ku Klux Klan, general hate, racist skinhead and anti-Muslim in Michigan. Horrible.

***

I’M WITH THE King in that I like the cops etc. What bothers me is the whining liberals who don’t support the very people that look after us.

***

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY has successfully morphed into a party of sniveling brats whose hypocrisy knows no limits and has no shame. I am a retired UAW representative and do not recognize the party that once stood for workers’ rights and fair wages.

***

THE GREEN NEW Deal, which AOC has helped bring from the fringes into the mainstream American conversation, is a sweeping reform that seeks to tackle fast-encroaching climate change and income inequality in the next decade.
