WEAPON-FREE SIGNS? Yeah, that’s a brilliant idea. Because what potential shooter would want to violate that rule.

***

WHENEVER A NEW source of taxation is created it never means that the old source is abandoned. It merely means that the politicians have implemented two ways of milking the taxpayer where they had one before.

***

GOV. WHITMER IS a typical Democrat. The solution to every problem is to raise taxes, not reduce costs. If we ran our households the way politicians run the states and the country, we’d all be bankrupt.

***

$48,000 FOR A light pole, $65,000 for a butterfly and $14 million for a non-motorized trail? Zero for neighborhood streets and roads. Vote the nuts out of Fenton.

***

LEADING SCIENTISTS ARE now saying we are in approximately year 24,500 years into a 26,000 cycle in which the Earth’s axis is tilted toward the northern hemisphere. Liberals think taking your tax money and throwing it at the problem will fix it. It’s a scam. Thanks Democrats.

***

WHEN IS RUNYAN Lake Road going to be repaired and repaved? The area from White Lake Road to the high school is full of large potholes and is a hazard. Help.

***

HEY ‘SOCIAL JUSTICE Warrior.’ By your definition of hate groups, the Methodist Church is now a hate group because they voted to reject gay marriage. This type of nonsense is where the SPLC (Southern Poverty Law Center) finds a growth in the number of hate groups.

***

TO ‘TRAIN NUT.’ if you want rail service in Michigan, there is nothing preventing you from sending a check to the state to pay for it.

***

I, FOR ONE, support nearly everything the King writes. It is refreshing to read him as opposed to the junk Heller spews.

***

EVEN NON-SCIENTIFIC observers immediately recognize that the sun is the single greatest variable affecting Earth’s climate. Any scientist claiming human activity as the cause of climate change without first proving solar stability is not engaging in scientific activity. They are purely spouting opinion.

***

SALEM WITCH HUNTS, nuke war, litter, acid rain, ozone depletion, space alien invasion, toxic smog, AIDS, Y2K, global warming, Ebola and Mayan calendar end of time were all mass hysteria events predicting global death and destruction. Add climate change to the list.

***

WHAT A GREAT unobstructed view of the Loose Center now that the old house has been demolished in front of it. Loose is such a gem. I’m happy to see it be more visible.

***

BY DEFINITION, CLIMATE is variability of weather over time. So-called climate experts point to changes in climate as proof of climate change. It is a nonsensical, self-reinforcing, circular argument. What is the goal climate hysterics want? Climate stability?

***

WHILE NOT KNOWING what ‘obstructing justice’ means, Trump’s sure he didn’t do it.

***

VENEZUELA IS NOT a Democratic Socialist country. It is a dictatorship. Sweden, Norway and Denmark are. Not that they don’t have problems. Other countries are partial democracies. Almost every nation but ours has universal health care. If they can have it, why can’t the ‘greatest country?’

***

THE SCIENTISTS THAT have high confidence in global warming are the same ones that told Al Gore that we’d be under water two years ago.

***

IF HELLER IS complaining about Walmart profits, just point him to the hundreds of millions of people who shop there and save lots of money because of their prices. I know; I’ve compared.

***

***

A LIVING WAGE is not a right.

THE ONLY ALLEGIANCE any of our representatives should have is an allegiance to The United States of America — not a foreign land.

***

CONGRESS CALLS FOR over 80 documents from Trump’s administrators compared to a 1,200-document request made by the GOP during ‘White Water.’ And Trump cries witch hunt?

***

BEWARE: AIRBNB, VRBO and HomeAway have serious flaws in their formats especially for condos and townhouses. You’re never told the exact location until you pay a huge non-refundable deposit. My advice is to go with a local well-established Realtor.

***

SNYDER SAT on his fat (blank) for eight years as our roads crumbled. At least Gretchen Whitmer is proposing a solution. Let’s give her a chance before running her out of town for trying to fix the damn roads.

***

FREE SPEECH IS not free. It comes with the responsibility to not incite hate or harm.

***

FOR THOSE OF you who come to the Loose Center to play cards in the afternoon, why not come a bit early and enjoy a healthy, affordable lunch and great fellowship with the other card players prior to your games.

***

EVER WONDER HOW Democrats became known as ‘tax and spend?’ Look at our new governor.

***

MICHIGAN LEGISLATORS, WHY not ‘designate’ the 6-percent sales tax we already pay on fuel for the roads, instead of putting it in the slush fund. This tax will cause an extreme hardship for many Michigan citizens and will be $.71 per gallon tax forever because it will never be repealed.

***

SOCIALISM UNDER THE guise of Capitalism. GE never paid taxes for 20 years. It’s a total disaster financed on the backs of taxpayers and stockholders while its CEOs were paid millions.

***

SINCE ‘HOT LINES’ make such a great comic strip why kill it by requesting artist signatures?

***

ARE YOU SERIOUS Gretchen? Now you want to tax our small businesses? These businesses have been vital to Michigan’s economic comeback. We should be rewarding them, not punishing them. This woman has to be stopped.

***

THE WAY LANSING is going we will no longer be known as the Great Lakes State. We will be known as the ‘Tax Again State.’ Time for an audit.

***

WOULD ANYONE WITH a freshly graduated college student and recent bartender living at their home let them run the household? Probably not, but Democrats are letting a congressperson with the same credentials try to run the country.

***

SOME PEOPLE THINK that those of us who oppose abortion should ‘mind our own business.’ If people had ‘minded their own business’ years ago, we’d still have slavery.

***

THE GLOBAL WARMING scientists are being paid to promote global warming and if they don’t support it, they don’t get the grant money. Remember the science that told Al Gore that our country would be under water two years ago? Yet, seaside property keeps increasing in value.

***

I DON’T THINK it is the ‘radical’ right that think the majority of schools are trying to turn out liberal puppets but the normal people are saying that. Being left is not normal.

***

LET’S BE CLEAR — neither Sweden nor Norway are socialist countries. They have more social policies than we do, but both are definitely capitalist countries.

***

WHAT ARE THE facts of climate change? Earth has gone through eras of heating and cooling before man existed as is proven by geological surveys. That is proven. It’s more proof than listening to paid climatologists espouse for money.

***

TO THE LIBERAL who supports police — it’s not you but the far left that are acting stupid.

***

WHITMER IS A classic liberal who, instead of cutting out useless outdated programs, would rather raise taxes. It’s a sorry state we’re thrown into. Let’s predict her to be a failure like her female predecessors.

***

I’M ALWAYS SPEECHLESS with the amount of negativity and combativeness I read in these comments. Do we really not like our fellow neighbors that much? I propose inviting one another out for coffee or beer and see how much we really have in common. We’re probably distant cousins.

***

I AGREE WITH King about the gas tax. We legalized pot. Cut the red tape and get dispensaries licensed and growers growing and fix the damn roads without taxing us out of being able to afford gas for work and commerce.

***

PLEASE LET ME reiterate that there are no facts to predict the future as far as climate is concerned. You are listening to a prediction from Nostradamus.

***

HEY CLIMATE HYSTERIC. Thanks for providing NASA’s findings at https://climate.nasa.gov/evidence. Did you notice the third sentence? ‘Most climate change is attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that changes the amount of solar energy our planet receives.’

***

TO HOT-LINER CLAMORING for civil discourse, name a time, date, place and topic.

***

THERE IS NOT a single public university in Michigan that doesn’t intentionally indoctrinate liberal views.

***

TO NORDIC SOCIALISM lover. Norway and Sweden are not socialist countries. They are parliamentary constitutional monarchies with free-market capitalist economies. The only socialist aspect of either county is Norway’s state-controlled petroleum industry. (Source: CIA Factbook)

***

I VOTED TRUMP for my president, not my pastor.

***

Good thinkin’ gretch. If you tax the crap out of our small businesses, it will scare people away from working and providing jobs. Fewer jobs means fewer people driving around on our roads. Less traffic means fewer road repairs. Fewer repairs means less taxation. Problem solved.

***

SO HAPPY THAT I was able to attend the Expo at the high school this year. The kids gym was really fun for my boys.
