A huge thank you to the city of Fenton for not spraying insecticide in 2019. I have at least five monarchs and several new species of moths, including a hummingbird moth. Thanks again.

Why do people think it’s okay to feed horses without asking the owner? Do I go to your house and feed your dog? Things are not the way they used to be. Stop and think.

***

Fenton needs speed bumps and police patrols up and down Silver Parkway. The speed limit is 35 not 55.

***

FOR THE MILLIONTH time: If non-citizens followed the law, they would not be here illegally. I think you are the one who is confused.

***

THERE IS NO scientific link between video games and mass violence.

WHY DO YOU think Democrats want to ‘take’ your guns? They don’t. No one does and no one has tried to. Should AR-15s be available to anyone? Why would you need that type of gun? It’s common sense. Until you’re personally affected by it you won’t care, and that’s sad.

***

I ASSUME THAT if I don’t agree with you or Trump I’m ‘disloyal’ and ‘un-American?’ Were you ‘loyal’ to the last president?

***

MENTAL ILLNESS IS your conclusion to the gun problem in America? No other countries have mentally-ill citizens? What are you so afraid of? Guns are the issue. Kindergarteners are doing active-shooter drills. You are the problem. Limit access — limit deaths.

***

WE HAVE A president who is attacking every U.S. citizen who does not agree with him. What happened to ‘for the people?’

REPUBLICANS IN OAKLAND County are masters at manipulation. Had a normal redistricting process occurred in Oakland County, Democrats would have seized control of the commission a long time ago.

I UNDERSTAND WHY people with employer paid healthcare don’t want to pay for national healthcare but the general public is paying for your healthcare every time they buy your employer’s product or something made with that product. Your employer just adds the cost of your healthcare to the price of the product.

THE WORLD IS changing every day. You cannot stop that with money. Humans can only lower the amount of pollution we put in the air.

***

AFTER CONGRESS LET a 1994 ban on assault weapons expire in 2004, gun massacres increased by 183 percent and associated deaths went up 239 percent.

***

GREAT ARTICLE MARK, however unless more is done about global warming, some day people will be cracking their 401ks to buy a loaf of bread as farmers are doing their best to stay ahead of rising temperatures. Never mind watching for a stock market bubble, watch for farmers going under.

***

CHURCHES COULD WIN back teens if they were more welcoming and less judgmental.

WHEN COMBINED, GUNS, mental instability and hatred create a lethal mixture — mass shootings. In a country that’s awash in gun violence, it’s time we take a hard look at this weapon of mass destruction.

***

HAVING A DRIVER’S license does not mean you are registered to vote. That is not how it works. If you are not a citizen, you cannot register to vote. Pretty easy stuff here.

***

IF YOU THINK Democrats are Socialists, you don’t understand politics at all. Do the rest of us a favor and stop voting if you are incapable of learning.

***

THE GREAT LAKES need presidential attention. We all have a right to clean, safe, affordable and accessible water. We must act now because every day we wait, the solutions get more costly.

***

TWO ABORTION BAN initiatives currently being circulated for signatures in Michigan would make almost all abortion care illegal. These initiatives put women’s health at risk and lack compassion for the unexpected situations women and their families may face in pregnancy.
