People need to educate themselves about marijuana. Today’s crop is completely different from the pot you smoked as a teenager. It is 10-20 times as powerful as the old home-grown pot. Prepare for another health disaster 10 years from now of tens of millions of brain-burned idiots that we’ll have to support.

The destroy-America agenda of the ‘left’ would be recognized for the complete and absurdity it is if the media were not corrupted to the point of treason. This is how countries are destroyed and taken over by tyranny. If this is what you want for your family, keep voting for the Democrats.

To all of the King bashers out there: Please read his column in the March 20 edition of the Times and answer any of his comments with a factual and intelligent answer.

If you have a goldfish swimming around in a bowl in your home you are torturing the fish. They are too small to generate the necessary oxygen. Over time they slowly and painfully suffocate and die. Either get a much larger tank for them, or better yet, don’t have them at all.

WALLS THAT WORK — Sumerians Amorite Wall, Long Walls of Athens, Great Wall in Gorgan, Hadrian’s Wall, Great Wall of China, Walls of Constantinople, Berlin Wall, Trump Wall.

FORD CEO JIM Hackett’s pay raise means he earns 276 times more than the median employee does. If those median employees would just work a little harder, he probably would have made more.

***

ONE REASON MICHIGAN is facing a crisis now over road funding is that ‘other states have built in inflationary measures. We did not,’ she said. ‘So while the cost of everything has climbed, our ability to pay has not increased.’

***

I FIND IT strange how most working class supports capitalism, union busting, hardly ever votes then complains about low paying jobs with no vested rights.

***

HOT-LINER ON AOC: I don’t need to ‘grow up’ to think for myself and see that the socialists/media machine have made AOC, whose role, like President Obama, was to move the ‘Overton Window’ and make her into one of the most dangerous people in America.

***

‘FREEDOM IS NEVER more than one generation from extinction...’ — Ronald Reagan. We are on the precipice — how will you choose? What will you tell your grandchildren when you chose socialism?

***

HOT-LINER BLAMING the wealthy is socialist cliché. Why are the schools lousy? They’re run by the government and unions. The socialist Democrats are against school choice. Opportunity: right now there is a huge skilled trades shortage with no student debt.

***

GOV. WHITMER WAS elected to ‘fix the damn roads.’ It is going to cost Michigan residents something. Continued denial by the Republican legislature will only delay the pain of more taxes. Either no new tax or bad roads.

***

THE RAPING OF Michigan is alive and well. Just look to your local gas station. There is absolutely no reason for the price-gouging going on.

***

LIBERAL DEMOCRATS, THE 9th circuit was overturned again. Trump wins. Let us hope immigration enforcement by ICE ends with jail and deportation for border jumpers.

***

HOUSE VOTE OF 420 in favor of releasing Mueller report is meaningless. The decision rests solely with the Attorney General.

***

INTERESTING — THE LEFT trusts science when it concludes that pollution is a minor factor impacting climate change, but doesn’t trust science when it concludes that the Earth’s changing positional relationship with the sun is the greatest factor.

***

HEY PUT UP or shut up. You are clueless. No one is arguing that the climate is not warming. The conversation revolves around the causes of the change. Get a clue.

***

THE GREAT LAKES basin has warmed more over the last 30 years than the rest of the contiguous United States, and could warm dramatically more by the end of the 21st Century.

***

CISCO, A COLD-water fish typically found in inland lakes, has a population on the decline in Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota, because of warming temperatures.

***

ANYONE PLANNING TO vote for a 1.2-millage (tax) for the Southern Lakes Parks and Recreation (SLPR) should be required immediately to send a $1,000 donation to the SLPR.

***

PLEASE EXPLAIN WHY the federal government is responsible for funding the Great Lakes Initiative when the states and Canada, which surround them, are the cause of the problems with them in the first place?

***

STATE AND FEDS release billions of dollars a year to rebuild infrastructure in our state. However, it’s your local townships and small governments who are regulating mining operations out of business.

***

THANK YOU FOR the Mark Farner articles. We’ve been fans since our teens and appreciate your covering Mark’s local connection to the area.

***

AS AN ARMY veteran, I detest the man, Trump, for defaming a great war hero, Senator John McCain, whose plane was shot down during the Vietnam conflict.

***

CITY OF LINDEN residents. Are you aware of what little non-motorized pathway is required in Linden but you will pay equally on the $14 million? We need streets/roads done first.

***

A BIG THANK you to the Linden Presbyterian Church for assistance with food and other items in my times of need.

***

I BELIEVE IF the Downtown Development Authority would have been left off the last roads ballot the proposal would have passed. The sculptures in the city are interesting, but we need our streets back in good repair. Including the DDA on the ballot is like giving them a blank check to inflict more ‘art’ on Fenton citizens.

***

THANK YOU, WONDERFUL Upward Basketball families for the very generous food donations. Bless you.

***

MOST OF THE financial and culture issues with the schools today are due to the union that most teachers belong to, the Michigan Education Association. The union leaders pay themselves $350,000-$400,000 annually. Smart teachers choose not to belong to the union.

***

SPRING AT LAST, Spring at last, good gosh almighty it’s Spring at last...Oh wait, it’s snowing.

***

Had to stop at both downtown lights, took five minutes to drive through downtown. All the people making the money are outsiders. All the people that pay for it are residents. Tell me again how this is good for the residents?

***

GOD HELP US with young people voting and having no idea about the U.S. and the Constitution. Voting by feelings is no way to vote. Even those of us who do believe that climate change does happen, as it has for 100s of million years, there is no amount of money that can change it.

***

TO ‘IT’S OBVIOUS’ 99 percent, 50 percent of intellect comes from experience, both formal education and from life experiences. As a 72-year-old retired educator, I know that learning never ends and ‘younger’ has much yet to learn.

***

TO CARD-CARRYING PETA member. Animals don’t have voices and have no legitimate rights in a court of law.

***

MORE EVIDENCE OF Whitmer’s corrupt regime: Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel and Michigan Department of Civil Rights collaborate with the Southern Poverty Law Center to target and label innocent Michiganders with hate group designation. SPLC is a proven liberal hate factory.

***

SPECIES HAVE GONE extinct ever since the first omega first showed up over 4 billion years ago. We are susceptible to going extinct just like the dinosaurs. Nothing we can do about it. Those plastic straws came from Asia, Pacific ocean currents sent them to our west coast.

***

DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME does not give us an extra hour of daylight. There’s approx 12 hours of sun, no more, no less. You cannot alter the movement of the sun by moving the hands on your clock.

***

HEY SOCIALIST FANATIC. Yes, the wealthy do enjoy the privilege and benefits of their hard work. Your insinuation that the rich are lucky and undeserving of their position is immoral. Your rant against Kylie Jenner is nothing more that petty jealousy.

***

SLICK MOVE, YOU get beat on the climate change argument so you switch to talking about photos of ‘50s environment. Environment and climate are two different topics, not interchangeable terms. Typical Democrat move: If you are losing, change the topic.

***

CARBON LEVELS ARE not uniformly homogeneous on a global level. What happened at the poles thousands of years ago has no relevance to what happened globally thousands of years ago.

***

TO HOT-LINER COMPLAINING ‘Republicans did nothing for eight year to fix the roads.’ Please get your facts straight. Before Michigan begins paying for roads, the state needed to address debt and finances. Republicans fixed the budget — a necessary first step. Please go learn about governance.

***

I SAW THE governor of California speaking on the news about doing away with the death penalty because he didn’t want to have to tell his children he was in favor of killing someone. Wonder what he will tell his children when they ask about him being okay with late-term abortion.

***

WINTER IS FADING and it is time for the annual release of the cats. As a public service announcement to cat owners, keep your animal on your own property.

***

LIBERALS, HOW WOULD you feel about an invasion of illegal white, English speaking, educated aliens coming to America for the abundant good paying jobs and displacing American workers? Would you still be pro illegal immigration?

***

YOU NEED TO put your partisan politics away. If you are defending Whitmer’s tax increase for roads by claiming the Republican administration prior to her ignored roads, then you are clearly delusional. Major roadwork has been done on I-696, I-75, I-275 and others.

***

IF WHITMER IS going to fix public education, I hope she doesn’t take the classic Democratic tactic wherein she throws more money at a failing system.

***

TO THE PERSON who thinks AOC is smart. You probably are the one that got the highest mark for all that failed.

***

I HOPE THE incredible story of Aiden Saunders encourages people to become organ donors. You won’t need them when you pass, I promise.

***

GREETINGS FROM COLORADO. I’m trying to finalize my summer vacation; it’s either snorkeling in Maui or fishing on the Fenton millpond and a cold beer at Walden’s. What’s going on with Walden’s?

***

I FIND IT eye-opening that people are surprised by the college cheating scandal. The wealthy don’t play by the same rules the rest of us do. College acceptance, political access, military service, and equality in the justice system — all areas where the wealthy buy their way in or out.

***

TO THE ANTI-GUN Hot-liner with no education. There have not been 2,444 Americans killed by guns in 2019. There may have been 2,444 Americans killed with guns so far in 2019 but there is a distinct difference when using the words ‘by’ and ‘with.’

***

COUNCILPERSON SMITH, KEEP your chin up. Fight The Power.

***

HOW ABOUT TAXING the billions of dollars spent on ‘Political Advertising’ to fund America’s crumbling infrastructure? Let’s give our politicians a dose of their own medicine for a change.
