To any person who wants to complain about a mayor or council in any city. Ask yourself how many meetings you’ve been to? How can I help make things better? Or should I sit in the peanut gallery and be a pain in the butt?

When you’re walking in downtown Fenton why is your head down looking at your phone? You can do that at home in your closet. Look around at the beautiful town. Learn something. Talk to a friend. Make a new friend.

I don’t look for role models in the government. I only want the government to serve the citizens and follow the law. I offer that role models should be parents, family and friends.

WE ARE A nation of immigrants and the sooner everyone realizes that, the chanting ‘go back where you came from’ can end. Immigrants built this great country. Immigrants came willingly and some not so. Immigrants made the USA great, not one political party. Just because you are louder doesn’t made it correct.

***

WE ARE A nation of laws. Undocumented workers broke our immigration laws, and I believe that they must be held accountable, especially those who may be dangerous. Deportations are up 80 percent with a focus on threats to our security. This statement was made by President Obama.

AWW. YOU WERE offended that someone pointed out how your generation neglected our state’s infrastructure? Boo hoo. Poor baby boomer.

DEMOCRATS DON’T SUPPORT open borders. They are centrists. Health care is a human right. If you don’t like progress, leave the U.S.

CURRENTLY, ANYONE WHO walks into an emergency room will be treated, whether they are a U.S. citizen. Trump and Republicans could have changed this when they had full control. But they did nothing. As usual, complaints without action.

SOON WE’LL BE planning our day before the noon shower or after, as practiced near the ‘Equator.’

I AGREE WITH the Hot-liner regarding Republican recessions. Every Republican president since 1920 has trashed the economy to a varying degree, either by a recession, two recessions or a full-blown depression. This is not just a coincidence; trickledown theory never reaches the working class people.

THE SUPER WIDE, fancy sidewalks downtown are cut down to smaller than their original size by restaurant patios. Why is this allowed? City officials, please correct this problem.

HAVING A COLLEGE education today is not a key to success if there is not a good paying job at the end. Consider trade schools that often offer paid internships or paid on-the-job training and a job at the end.

REGARDING THE FAPS August sinking fund millage. This millage includes more technology upgrades. What is the difference between these tech upgrades and the tech upgrades we are still paying for from the last tech/security bond?

DEMOCRATS WERE STILL the largest political party with more than 42 million voters (compared with 30 million Republicans and 24 million independents). How did the Republican win?

AS I DRIVE around town, I can’t help but notice how many people are on their cell phones. At least 90 percent. Someone’s going to get hurt.

SO YOU THINK the bike path would bring more people here; well you are probably right. But we need Fenton to stay safe and small. If you want to ride a bike go to Flint or Oakland County, but make sure you have a concealed weapon permit to carry your gun because it’s not safe there.

THIS PRESIDENT SEEMS to think that people who disagree with him hate our country. When in reality the opposite is true. People who love this country and what it stands for know this president has done more harm than anyone thought possible. He even makes Nixon look good.

A FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT is also to criticize those who want to, by design, overwhelm and destroy the country’s economy. The government’s power will then be used to ‘save us.’

SOCIALISM DOESN’T LIFT people out of poverty, doesn’t encourage hard work or initiative, punishes hard workers, brings all down to poverty level (Venezuela, Cuba), relies on other people’s money, destroys risks and rewards concepts, doesn’t improve lives, gives government control of everything. This is the new Democrat Party’s goals.

Just FYI, the US debt has roughly doubled every 8 years since about 1980 (Except Clinton). Obama was nothing special in that regard, he just happened to begin with the highest debt we had ever had up until he was in office, and then roughly doubled it. But ... now the Trump administration has added $1.5 Trillion to that debt in 2 years, during what he will tell you is the most prosperous time in our history. A dilemma for sure.
