Apologies to the man in the black truck that I pulled out in front of even though I thought it was flying. You pulled into Boston’s. My fault.

How many accidents does it take before Fenton drivers start using turn signals to switch lanes, turn or go into a left turn lane?

***

Really enjoyed Vera’s Wizard of Oz trivia.

***

THE REPUBLICANS PROMISED to take on corruption. Remember that? However, they have gone to Washington and just plundered away.

***

I AGREE WITH the self-proclaimed Democrat writer that reactionary Hot-liners are flawed if they think they know you. There is a firm ideological split between socialist collectivism and a free market economy with individual liberties.

WHY ARE YOU against buying Greenland? Please review their strategic value.

HAD EXCELLENT DINNER outside at Ciao Saturday night. Everything was perfect except the customers next door — loud, trashy language and rude behavior.

***

PLEASE CHECK YOUR advisor/fiduciary fees. If you are paying more than 1 percent you are being taken advantage of. Shop around and get customer reviews on their performance.

***

IT’S WELL KNOWN that pay raises for corporate executives have far outpaced those for ordinary workers in recent decades, contributing to rising income inequality nationwide.

WITH BIPARTISAN SUPPORT in many cases, 17 states and Washington D.C. have now passed ‘red flag laws’ that allow the court-ordered removal of guns from people who are considered to be dangerous.

***

YOUR SECOND AMENDMENT does not preclude my right to life and liberty. Our second amendment helps to ensure you can protect your right to life and liberty.

TODAY’S ‘POOR’ HAVE more than previous generations of the ‘poor’. And most often, today’s ‘rich’ are those that have generated successful business and innovation. They are the backbone of our economy and oftentimes are demonized by the type of people who want free access to their wallets.

COME ON FENTON Crossing! Hairplay has been gone for years!

***

BENEFITS PAID BY our government comes from taxes on American workers. Anyone who is able-bodied, doesn’t work and gets government benefits is living off the wages of American workers. They should be thankful, not complaining and putting out their hand for more.

***

WHO REGULATES ‘THE well-regulated Militia?'

THE POOR AREN’T poorer with Trump. More unemployed are working; opportunities to advance are available; taxes are lower. The only able-bodied people who are remaining poor are people who aren’t taking advantage of available employment opportunities. Everyone who can must work to advance.

GREAT ARTICLE ABOUT reproductive rights, but someone should tell Hannah Ball that her apparent hero, Margaret Sanger, was a notorious racist and Eugenicist. Do your research.

THE FOOD SERVICE director at LF schools deserves jail time regardless of restitution. Appears to have been embezzling for a long time, obviously without remorse. Need to send a message this behavior has consequences!

***

TO THE PERSON asking a Republican about the federal spending and national debt. Yes, we care. I think you need to recheck how much Obama raised our national debt and what his administration spent money on that had to do with our safety in particular.

***

FOR THOSE OF you who may not know this, you pay roughly 6 percent of your income to a Social Security tax. However, if you earn more than $138,000 annually (a cap that keeps rising each year), you pay the Social Security tax on only the first $138,000. You pay no more Social Security tax, even if you make a million bucks.

***

ACROSS THE RURAL south, conservative Republican-controlled areas explicitly side with the pundits and the anti-intellectuals and against our citizens. These Republicans are anti-equitable laws, anti-police regulation, anti-taking care of vets and first responders. The results in these areas are increased diseases, welfare, ODs, and poverty. Cons are the main problem.

PROBLEMS IN INNER cities, especially those in the Rust Belt, are very complicated. Stop repeating what you heard on your TV and talk to someone with an actual education.

***

BET YOU COULDN’T find Greenland on a map. You also don’t understand the first thing about the actual left.

***

DEMOCRATS WOULD BE considered right of center in most other countries. They are not even close to socialists. Stop repeating what the man on TV tells you to think and stop getting news from Facebook memes.

***

YOUR CASUAL OBSERVATION that ‘not everyone should have a gun’ is exactly the careless attitude that rational, legal gun owners fear. An equally valid statement is that ‘not everyone should have a vote.’ Sounds menacing, doesn’t it?

TO ALL YOU you owners/drivers of your $80,000-plus wake/ski boats. The proper side of the boat to approach your skier/boarder is from the right/driver/starboard side. This allows you to observe your skier/boarder at all times. It scares me when I saw you approaching from the left/port side.

***

YOU HAVE A ‘right’ to life, liberty and the ‘pursuit’ of happiness, but you do not have a right to guarantee the outcome. You cannot steal other people’s labor to provide these. You are solely responsible.

***

SO FAR THIS president has raised the national debt a lot less and his spending has to do with America. He believes other countries need to start taking care of themselves, which every country should be able to do and which they cannot do because they are socialistic mostly. What we need to do is vote people into office who care about us and keep us safe.
