I’m getting scared to get my paper anymore. Every time I open it up, there’s more requests for our money. Taxes for the culture center, then the roads, now the bike paths and soon the school. The joke about taxes will soon come true: ‘how much do you make? Send it all in.’

We wonder why nations can’t get along but sadly we see two neighbors duking it out in the Hot lines. Shame on you for calling DNR on your neighbor and then being glad they got in trouble. You seriously want government telling us whether we can feed birds in our yard or not?

Earth Day Is Monday, April 22. Celebrate by cleaning up the trash where you live, whether you are a guest, renter or homeowner. If everyone did this, our community would be a better place.

Holly man beats girlfriend, great bodily harm less than murder $5,000 bond. Tim Hortons’ employee videotaping the bathroom $150,000 bond? What?

TRUMP DOES PICK the attorney general, not the Senate. The Senate confirms his pick.

FROM WHAT I read the new bike path will make absolutely no improvements in the city of Fenton. It will only build paths outside the city. No sidewalks or anything within the city will be built or fixed. So as a city resident, why would I want my taxes increased for something that offers me about zero benefit? It only benefits those outside the city.

***

WE SHOULD LET states and localities see whether they can make schools work better. The grandiose fix-it national plans are mostly exercises in political marketing. We need solutions, not slogans.

IN REGARDS TO the Genesee District Library. I can do all of those things in the convenience of my home for less than I pay per year in the library millage added to my property taxes.

HEY PROFESSOR, STILL believe that ‘teens are the smartest?’

***

THE CITY OF Fenton should install parking meters downtown to raise revenue.

WHEN PEOPLE CHOOSE doctors they often talk about their experience, where they work (e.g., Mayo Clinic), how many of a particular type of operation they’ve done, etc. I don’t ever remember somebody saying they would not trust a doctor because he/she was in it for the money.

***

ONLY A POLITICAL hack thinks politicians have standards.

TO MCCAIN DEFENDER. His wartime record doesn’t earn him a free pass. If you think he had integrity, look up ‘The Keating Five.’ McCain’s vain, personal vendetta against Trump was the reason he passed along the bogus dossier. Subverting an election for personal ego is treasonous.

***

IT NEEDS TO be pointed out that skeptical climate change studies are also carried out and it can be equally argued that some of their authors may be in it for the money, and given they are remunerated by wealthy fossil fuel companies, they may be more in it for the money than other scientists.

***

THE ENTIRE INVESTIGATION by the Democrats was paid for with public funds and therefore should be released, in its entirety, to the public.

***

THE RUSSIAN ‘INTERFERENCE’ of the election was the release of Clinton’s emails that she tried to destroy except she was too stupid to realize that all electronic communications sent over the airwaves are public domain.

THE DEMOCRATS SUPPORT illegal aliens and people from other countries in every instance instead of American citizens.

IF YOU LIKE the VA, IRS and Secretary of State, you’ll just love it when the politicians and bureaucrats run our health insurance program.

WITH MEDICARE FOR all, it will be illegal to have private health insurance or to purchase your own health care. Is this what you want?

TURN OFF ALL national cable news including CBS, ABC and NBC. They have taken you for fools. Wake up, and start acting like proud U.S. citizens, defend our country from enemies foreign and domestic, and make your parents and grandparents proud of you.

I am happy to pay into the millage that funds the cultural center in Flint. Hopefully it will help educate people.

PLEASE ENLIGHTEN ME. What exactly is the agenda of the climatologists? I will assume no answer means you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about.

SENATOR STABENOW INTRODUCED bipartisan legislation last week to make it easier for consumers to buy electric and hydrogen vehicles. The Driving America Forward Act expands the number of vehicles eligible to receive the electric vehicle tax credit by an additional 400,000 vehicles per manufacturer.

CONCERNS ABOUT WATER quality are linked to cattle farming, commercial logging, mining, runoff from road salt, illegal dumping, industrial discharge, septic systems and lawn chemicals.

THURSDAY MORNING AG Barr released his version of the ‘Mueller Report’ hoping to limit its impact on the public heading into Good Friday.

THE SINKING FUND millage is very important and necessary. If you lunatics weren’t so obsessed with guns, the money from the school property sale wouldn’t have to be wasted on security.

***

BERNIE WOULD’VE WON in 2016. The DNC is trash.

I HAVE BEEN to the cultural center in Flint many times and have enjoyed what that millage provided.

The idea that the government would prohibit you from buying a heath insurance policy outside of a (as-yet non-existent) national health care system is merely fear-mongering. That's like saying "If the gov't institutes this Social Security plan, you won't be able to privately fund your retirement!" It's gibberish.
