By golly I finally saw a butterfly at the garden.

I would like to take a moment to thank our Fenton police and fire department. Kevin, thank you for taking my call. To the firefighters who left their families to run on our non-emergency call at 1 a.m. Monday morning, we were completely at a loss over what to do. We can’t thank you enough. Thank you.

Such a shame, animals outside all day, but what about the ones locked up inside all day while you work for 14 hours, then have to rush home to let your dog out instead of stopping by to visit your grandson? Don’t get a dog if you can’t take care of it properly.

Can officers of a homeowners association be sued for failure to hold an annual association meeting? Haven’t had one in almost three years and wondering what’s going on.

***

WITH ALL THE phony crimes the Democrats have accused President Trump of committing and now impeachment for inquiring about the crooked Ukraine dealings of Biden’s son, the only way to stop the Dems is to start indicting them for all the crimes they have gotten away with, starting with Hillary.

I’D LIKE TO advise the people that are lamenting about being poor that they are there because of the choices they made.

I WISH ALL law officers would wear head protection when they deal with people. At least they would stand a chance to be safe.

ANYBODY THAT HUNTS deer in Michigan will contract some form a disease. At least that’s what Lansing is hoping for.

YES, MCCONNELL IS sitting on Democrat bills. Let’s see, the latest (HR 3525) requires Homeland Security to develop a medical database for illegal border crossers, oh yeah, within 90 days while they’re at it. The vets — they can wait.

OBAMA DID NOT double the presidential salary. What he did was double the national debt to over $20 trillion, nearly destroying the U.S. economy, along with higher taxes, uncontrolled spending, and a very low GDP. President Trump has worked hard to reverse Obama’s damage to our country.

YOU GO GM. You have given a very fair deal to all those union workers, more than fair. Stick to your guns.

***

WHEN ASKED, I find that very few Republican and Democrat voters can articulate the policies of one or both sides. Most just repeat emotional talking points they hear on propaganda TV. I think we all need to take action to become better-informed voters.

***

GOV. WHITMER, IF you enforced laws already on the books you wouldn’t have to create new laws. Vape products were already illegal for minors. All you did was take away the products for legal users. This is what Dems want to do with your rights because the government knows better than the individual.

***

THE MILLIONS DONATED and spent on political campaigns is obscene. What’s Democratic about spending millions while the rich get richer and the poor get poorer and the corrupt get more corrupt.

***

IF PRESIDENT TRUMP has nothing to hide why doesn’t he let all the people testify?

***

GM PROFITS $8 billion. GM ended eye and dental care. CEOs make millions. So why shouldn’t the people who make the cars benefit from these giant profits? Workers in similar situations should be paid well, too.

***

WHY WOULD YOU say Trump doesn’t donate his pay? You’re the one misinformed. You people need to read the government website. It’s all public information and yes, he does donate his salary every year. People stop watching mainstream media.

***

ABOUT THE CHURCH music in Linden. Really? But St. John’s can have Applefest and cause local streets and neighborhoods to be inundated with cars and traffic and host a beer tent. That’s probably okay, right?

***

JOHN MCCAIN WOULD have taken Lindsey Graham out to the woodshed for his position on presidential obstruction.

I GET YOU’RE probably all union. But, you think you can work some overtime and weekends and open Seymour Road back up at the tracks. If I wanted to drive on dirt roads, I would have purchased a house on a dirt road. Finish it already.

TRUMP TAKES ONE dollar for his salary and the rest is donated. Also, the President’s salary was raised before George Bush took office, under Bill Clinton and a Republican controlled Congress. [Source: Wikileaks]

THE CITY OF Fenton’s control over the roundabout construction is ridiculous. Their signage for which direction is usable and which isn’t and where exactly the road is closed is non-existent. This MDOT project has been a nightmare for anyone having to travel through that area. Well handled, Fenton.

BOW HUNTING STARTS and as every year way too early. Let the big bucks have a chance to breed. For all you so-called able-bodied hunters it makes me sick to see you smiling in your photos with you proud kills with a cross bow. Use a real bow.

YOU HAVE FREEDOM of religion, not freedom to push your religion on others.

I HAVE NO issues with Biden’s son being investigated as long as Trump’s kids, Ivanka and Don Jr. are also investigated.

IF PRESIDENT TRUMP had lost the election the UAW would not exist today. The American auto industry would not exist today. The United States would be a third-world country, wallowing in unemployment and debt and nearing revolution. Just look at Venezuela. That would be what the U.S. would look like.

REGARDING THE BIG box store and self-checkout Hot line. I refuse to use it. If everyone did so they would go away, but you have to be united. Remember when ‘self-serve gas’ started, we had to have gas. There are other stores to shop at, so only when it starts to cost them will they open more lines.

DEAR SLPR, I hope you have a change of heart and work to find a way to keep AYSO at the Deer Run Soccer Fields, somehow. So many families have generously volunteered their time making those fields what they are today for our local communities. Let them stay.

APPARENTLY, ELISSA SLOTKIN has forgotten why she was elected in the 8th District. Her alignment with the ‘Squad’ and the far left trying to impeach our President does not set well in our community. We voted her in and we can vote her out.

THIS IS IN response to the Hot line from last Sunday. SLPR is having a Masquerade Party, adult only, Oct. 26 at the Fenton Community & Cultural Center. Tickets are at slpr.net. We are a non-profit.

republicans tried to indict hillary and found out that she didn't do anything criminal. Trump on the other hand has publicly and privately asked a foreign government to interfere with American affairs. And Republicans are ok with that. Republicans think it's just fine if a foreign government controls our government. And Trump is leading it. That's why he's being impeached. His actions are anti-American.
