Thanks to the wonderful and kind man at the tree farm on Bennett Lake Road for finding my very old Boston Terrier and returning him. It is so nice to see kind people are still around.

Vera Hogan’s Dec. 29, 2019 ‘Just sayin’ is the most profound article that I have read. I share her longing for a time when civility reigned and we could agree to disagree. We can only hope that the Times readers take her message to heart. Here’s to a more peaceful and civil 2020.

***

Can we please get an article about getting off social media? People really get sucked in, waste a lot of time and forget to worry about real life.

***

Oh how I dislike the Detroit Lions, let me and everyone out there count the ways — no pass rush, cannot draft, no running game, etc.

***

WE’LL ALL BE hearing soon about Admiral Rogers and the Obama administration spy gate. Won’t hear this on ABC, NPR or CNN.

***

THE MICHIGAN GOVERNOR vetoed overturning the deer feed, bait ban. Science and other state’s evidence does not support a ban. Make sure you don’t feed the deer this winter or you could be turned in to the authorities.

***

WHAT WOULD YOU do with $1,000 a month?

***

THE VIRGINIA GOVERNOR and AG say that it’s legal to have sanctuary cities and counties for illegal aliens, but not for the second amendment. Please explain. Thanks.

***

TO ‘PROVE HE hasn’t done anything wrong’ Hot-liner and mainstream media. The burden of proof is on the government to provide evidence of guilt, and not the accused to provide evidence of innocence.

***

MARL DRIVE SLUM landlord, clean up your renters.

***

WONDER HOW MANY people who have shooting ranges, dirt bike tracks, etc., have ever informed their homeowners insurance. Willing to bet without a rider and no coverage.

***

NO MATTER WHAT happens in the Senate, Trump will always be the third president to be impeached by the House. That will be with him forever in the history books.

***

I DON’T NEED anybody to tell me how to eat; it’s called moderation and common sense.

***

TO THE HOT-LINER who said we need to send the teachers there instead of bringing these military people into our country to train them. Actually, we shouldn’t have to do either one, but yes, sending teachers there makes much more sense.

***

FOUND ANOTHER HIDDEN jewel in Fenton. Had lunch at the Gourmet Guys Grill. It is great. Fresh food, portions sizes just right, clean and friendly service. This will definitely be on my list of places to go for lunch or dinner.

***

WHEN YOU START your Hot line with hateful rhetoric, untruths and writing something you wouldn’t repeat in church, it’s time for you to look deep into a mirror and ask yourself why are children acting as they do today.

***

ELISSA SLOTKIN HAS clearly stated many times the reasons she voted for impeachment. I admire her careful consideration of this issue and am proud of the job she is doing for her constituents.

***

I AM A Democrat and I am neither a Socialist nor unpatriotic. Please don’t label all people of any group in such broad, general, derogatory terms.

***

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS being denied a speedy trial by Ms. Pelosi. Clearly, the impeachment is political. Trump should request the Supreme Court to throw out the alleged impeachment articles.

***

WHEN OBAMA WAS president the TCT printed hundreds of comments claiming he lied about a provision in the ACA. Maybe he did, but he is no match for POTUS. Every time he opens his mouth or fires out tweets, nothing but lies and half-truths.

***

REP. MIKE MUELLER, did you consult doctors and surgeons regarding House Bill 4958? Were you an educated voter?

***

I RESENT THAT the Democrat politicians define our laws one way when they are the majority and define the same laws differently when they are the minority. They aren’t mistaken or exaggerating, they are lying.

***

WE MUST UPHOLD the principles and integrity that this nation was founded on. You cannot bend the rules to suit your needs.

***

IF YOU CAN honestly say you’d be proud of your child or grandchild if they behaved just as Trump does, then great, you should support him. I’m sure this isn’t the case however. Our President should be a role model. We can do better. We have to do better.

***

AS AN OLDER person who really benefits from and needs the higher stools and handrails in the ‘handicapped’ stalls in stores and restaurants, I would appreciate it greatly if those who ‘just like the extra room’ would use the non-handicapped stalls if they are not in use. Thank you.

***

THE FINANCIAL ADVISER quoting 5.5 to 8.5 percent in annual returns is selling high-risk investments and you could lose all your money. The fine print states ‘L Bonds’ may be considered speculative and subject to a high degree of risk, including the risk of losing your entire investment.

***

IN 2020, AMERICANS will decide if they want to remain a free and independent country under Trump or return to the elitist, globalists like Bush, Clinton, Romney, Obama, Biden, Kerry, etc. These globalists will lead us back toward a world government. Let’s keep America free and independent with Trump.

***

THAT’S GREAT WHEN opposite shifts are no problem for parents. One child must be easy. I guess we’re failures.

***

HOW MUCH INFLUENCE do you think advertising dollars have on the news you hear? The mainstream news outlets are fueled by advertising revenue. Not only are they telling you only the stories they want you to hear, but the way they want you to hear them.

***

GOT MY ONESIE for this year’s Onesie Pub Crawl. What a fun and great event for charity.

***

WELL, THE LIONS found another way to lose a game. Why did I waste my time again watching that game?

***

YES, I AM a loving Christian who has no issue with same-sex relationships, but have real problem with radical leaders who destroy everything they touch.

***

THE ‘LIGHTER SIDE of the Times’ used to cover the front page. It’s only been recently the drama seeking (sometimes unrelated to our community) headlines have taken over.

***

TOTALLY AGAINST PROPOSED special assessment for Margaret Drive in excess of $10,000 for each parcel. Taxed enough.

***

WHY IS IT that the plow trucks follow each other, sometimes three or four in a row? They are plowing and salting sometimes up front. So they are dropping salt from the lead truck and then plowing the salt off the road. Does this make sense or can someone explain it?

***

I CAN APPRECIATE a few minutes of fireworks on New Year’s Eve. Three hours is excessive. Some of us work early shifts. Pease have some respect. That includes you, Argentine Township supervisor.

***

THE ANNUAL FEDERAL deficit is how much more money the government spends versus what it takes in. For 2020, the deficit is projected to be $1.1 trillion. That is the highest deficit since 2012. Good job, Trump.

***

IT’S AMUSING TO me just how many people truly don’t understand our constitution and government framework. Impeachment has happened. Removal from office has not. Even if Trump is acquitted by the Senate, he will still be the third impeached president and will always carry that asterisk.

***

THE MILITARY BUDGET in the U.S. is completely out of control. The fact that you think it is OK is insane. Please stop sending my generation to fight unnecessary wars.

***

TO THE TRUMP supporters. I laugh all day when people like you post. You are brainwashed and don’t even know it. During the Obama administration, I remember all kinds of help wanted signs. Now we have tariffs that make even buying a bicycle unaffordable.
