GOV. WHITMER, PLEASE take notice of what’s going on in France right now: massive riots against the government for raising gas taxes. We already pay some of the highest gas taxes in the nation and you still want to raise it? Riot or move are the only two options you’re giving us.

***

ASK YOUR GRANDCHILDREN a few basic questions, such as ‘who did we fight in WWII’ or ‘what is the Constitution of the United States’ and you will quickly realize how pathetic the American school experience is today. If they are our future, we are in big, big trouble.

***

THANK YOU TO the parents of the teen who stole their guns and they reported it to the police instead of trying to hide their child. They took everyone else’s safely into consideration and stopped a potential bad situation. That takes guts.

***

I’M SO GLAD we have a Republican majority in the state senate to reel-in this tax-and-spend leftist now in the governor’s mansion. Lots of cuts can be made, funds tapped before new taxes are needed.

***

PAUL RYAN — TAX cuts for the wealthy, cuts in programs that provide core public services, and cuts to the safety net that are assisting the most vulnerable.

***

EXEMPLIFYING THE BEHAVIOR of socialists everywhere, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez immediately denounces prayers for New Zealand shooting victims. There is no room for religion under socialism.

***

THE HOUSE TODAY voted that the Mueller report, when it is released, will be released to the public. The final vote count was 420 in favor, with no one voting no. Four lawmakers voted ‘present.’

***

EVER NOTICE HOW Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez only speaks on platforms where she is not asked questions.

***

IT IS TOO bad that baby boomers refused to fix the roads for decades and now they are destroyed.

***

YOU CAN’T LEGALLY kill a baby after it is born.

***

INTERESTING — THE RIGHT trusts science when it concludes that the tilt of the earth causes climate change, but doesn’t trust science when it concludes that pollution also is a factor. Convenient, but very short-sighted.

***

PUT UP OR shut up. I am willing to bet my next paycheck against yours that the average earth temperature will be higher five years from now. I like my chances since you seem to believe that tomorrow’s forecast is an indicator of climate change.

***

TO ALL THESE ignorant younger people complaining about the real grown-ups in this world. We don’t hate AOC; she just doesn’t have it at all together even though you think she is great.

***

TO THE YOUNGER person disparaging ‘old people.’ Please be cognizant of the ‘science’ you are listening to.

***

I AGREE THAT taxing the (voted in) legalized pot with taxes only going to roads and schools. But, with every city, town and township prohibiting the selling and growing in its district, the government isn’t allowing us to have that very intelligent choice.

***

TO ‘MAD THAT AOC is half your age and, unlike you, was actually smart enough to go to college.’ My SAT scores were high enough to get into a dozen different colleges, but life threw me/us curveballs that did not allow me/us to attend. Instead, I/we worked in other fields that didn’t require a college diploma. That’s called growing up.

***

THE PRESIDENT WITH his veto has cut Nancy Pelosi’s head off and that girl doesn’t know she is bleeding. A wall; I can’t think a better use of earmarked funds.

***

NORTH KOREA IS not a socialist country.

***

PLEASE EXPLAIN HOW it is a bad thing for the people using our roads to pay for their repair. Gas taxes charge people using the roads for their upkeep.

***

MY MEDICAL OPHTHALMOLOGIST retired and was the only independent doctor left in Shiawassee County. Today all (doctors and healthcare clinics) are owned by one, controlling all doctors, health care and medical service cost

in Shiawassee County, creating a

possible monopoly.

***

IN HIS THIRD budget, President Donald Trump is seeking to cut 90 percent of funds from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative for the third time, again attracting bipartisan opposition from Michigan lawmakers.

***

STABENOW IS VOTING the wishes of her constituents that voted for her. I’d guess you didn’t vote for her.

***

IF YOU PUT an end to the practice of lobbying and special interests in Washington, D.C., the Legislators would actually have to do their jobs and be held accountable.
