‘The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.’ — Edmund Burke

I thank the Fenton High School programs for standing up for issues like first responders against cancer, water crisis amongst our neighbors, but could it be possible to have one game, meet, etc., to stand up against sexual assault? Let’s be the one small town that makes a statement.

***

I applaud all the Fenton high school coaches/staff for all they do during and through the off-season. Mike Bakker is a leader of character and expects that throughout all the programs.

***

Let’s give our first responders a huge raise. They are heroes every day putting their lives on the line. We pay men chasing balls, basketballs, footballs and golf balls millions of dollars a year. Nothing heroic about that.

***

HI POINTER MAKER. The fact that Social Security is not socialism is the point. You’re concerns about the size of government are misplaced. The type of government is more important. Identifying Social Security as welfare directly contradicts socialist lies and works to preserve democracy.

***

I THINK THAT the ones who should be taxed are the ones who use the schools, not the elderly or singles without children.

***

THANKS VERA FOR the interesting list of high-IQ women. A list in any other publication would only include leftist social justice warriors.

***

FUNDED BY OUR taxes, yes. By my tax money that I put into it all my working years Social Security is not a ‘government handout’ when I’m merely getting the money I put into it all my working years back. Truth be told, most people die before they recoup everything they put into it.

***

WHO’S GOING TO maintain the bike path? Hope not the same people that maintain our city roads.

***

TO THE HOT-liner talking about texts from so-called Republican candidates. Did you ever think the Democrats could be sending these messages because you are an independent to move your vote to them? Wise up; don’t be fooled. That is just what they would do to discourage you and move your vote.

***

VERA, IN REGARDS to your article on high-IQ women, I’m glad you mentioned Hypatia, but you should have mentioned that in the year 415 she was brutally beaten to death by a mob of Christians.

***

CAR MANUFACTURERS ARE not forcing electric cars on you. Take a deep breath and calm down.

***

NEIGHBORS: PLEASE SUPPORT our Second Amendment. Democrats in many states are proposing and passing anti-Second Amendment house bills like a production line. These states, including potentially Michigan next year, will have turned hundreds of thousands of law-abiding citizens into felons overnight.

***

I’M SORRY BUT you will vote Socialist because you’re getting too many Republican candidate donation requests?

***

ALMOST ALL OF the rich people I know vote Democrat. After responding that I support our president’s policies in a large group setting, these people went silent. I will no longer hide my support for traditional American Christian values regardless of intolerant Democrats/Socialists.

***

I’M ALSO RECEIVING texts several times a day to contribute money to Trump. I believe Democrats are doing it to make me angry with Republicans. It almost worked, then I got it...

***

YOU’RE UPSET ABOUT funding for the ‘cold?’ Really, instead of our poor response to a virus that has killed thousands?

***

INTERESTING THAT OUR governor thinks the stock market only benefits the rich. Is AOC her economics advisor?

***

THE 1.8 MILLION PEOPLE who have to redo their ballots shows we need to do ranked choice voting in the primaries. Ranked choice allows people to vote for whom they agree with the most without worrying if their vote will matter in cases of smaller candidates.

***

SINCE WE KNOW what the Biden father and son have been up to, shouldn’t we impeach them now?

***

PEOPLE, DO YOU ever give it a thought about what you are doing when you put your shopping carts in the handicap parking spaces? Don’t we have enough challenges without having to take care of your cart because you’re too lazy to put it in the corral?

***

NONE OF THE restaurants I want to come to Fenton have a drive-thru.

***

BIDEN WILL ‘RESTORE honor’ to office of President of The United States.

***

I’M A ‘PROGRESSIVE’ and I agree CNN gets on a single subject and just beats it into the ground.

***

DARLING, GIVE IT up. The girls won more games this year on athletic ability alone. It had nothing to do with your poor coaching. Go Blue Devils.

***

I WANT TO give a shout out to Discount Tire on Owen Road. They have the best employees ever. They are always friendly and easy to deal with. Good job, you guys and ladies. You’re awesome.

***

THE MEDIA SHOULD publish the number of flu hospitalizations and deaths. This would give the public a true indication as to how serious the coronavirus really is. They instead want to panic Americans.

***

WOW, JUST HEARD Democrat Congressman and House Majority Whip James Clyburn call to end the primary, giving the nomination to presumptive nominee Joe Biden. Only 24 states have voted so far. I guess Democrats in Arizona, Florida, Ohio, Georgia, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and New York don’t matter.

***

THIS IS TO the couple on North LeRoy last Friday afternoon. I just wanted to tell you that your brake light was out. You acted as if I was a maniac for trying to talk to you. You sure don’t have much faith in your fellow man.

***

IF YOU HONESTLY think it is okay to pull out in front of someone and then go 10-20 mph under the speed limit, you need to check yourself. Learn how to drive. People around here are terrible.

***

RED FOX OUTFITTERS, I’m sorry to hear of its closing. I wonder if they could add a small restaurant and keep their outfitter line. Also, I remember being in Ohio and going to a large restaurant like the Red Fox building. It was a spaghetti factory. The place was packed.

***

THE SWAMP IS drooling over the prospect of a Biden presidency. With Biden’s stammering and diminished mental capacity, unelected bureaucrats will have free reign to get back to business as usual.

***

GLOBALISM HAS CAUSED us to become dependent on China for our antibiotics, masks and medical equipment. Bush, Clinton, Obama, Biden, Kerry and Bloomberg are all globalists. Trump has been trying to end dependence on China. Support Trump.

***

LET’S LOOK AT the facts. CDC estimates that so far this season there have been at least 34 million flu illnesses, 350,000 hospitalizations and 20,000 deaths from flu. Antiviral medications are an important adjunct to flu vaccine in the control of influenza. Don’t panic over the coronavirus.

***

Okay, all you people buying up and hoarding all the toilet paper and hand sanitizer, did it ever occur to you that other  people  need to use those things too in order to protect your sorry self from the virus?

***

TO THE HOT-LINER who wanted the mom of the disruptive child to go to the cry room. I invite all moms and their children to the 11:05 service in the family life center, next to the Fenton United Methodist Church. We welcome all. Come as you are, be as you are.

***

I’m at a point in my life where I just want my family happy, my health good, my mind right and no drama. Can I get an amen?
