HEALTH CARE OR health insurance is not a right. A doctor, hospital, etc., provide a service and they are paid to perform that service. You are stealing their labor and my earnings if you think it is a right.

PRESIDENT REAGAN INHERITED Carter’s recession and he fixed it so that Slick Willie didn’t have to deal with one. Dems gave us Dodd-Frank and it screwed up housing industry.

***

TIRED OF PICKING up empty beer cans and liquor bottles. Throwing the evidence out the window won’t keep you from arrest or killing someone some day. You are reckless and thoughtless in your action. Get help.

***

HOW ABOUT FENTON put a smaller millage for fewer years on the ballot for the roads. No one wants a 10-year millage. And set aside a small portion of the budget strictly for the roads.

***

MASS SHOOTINGS ARE the result of our broken culture. Fixing our broken culture begins with calm, thoughtful, non-political discussions of what’s wrong with it.

Sitting at Crust’s outdoor patio on Caroline Street. Cars are flying by at high speeds. Why? It’s clearly a congested area filled with pedestrians. What’s the rush? Are you OK with hitting a family? Slow down please.

Oprah is correct. She said that people are missing a core moral center, a core center of values about a way of living and being in the world. Churches used to do that and until we return to that we will continue to be lost.

***

Thank you to VG’s for the extra wide parking spaces. It’s the little things that can make a difference.

***

A big thank you to the Thin Blue Line; our police officers who put it on the line every day.

***

WHAT IS THE difference between Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton?

***

HAS ANYONE ELSE heard that our new governor is in favor of issuing drivers’ licenses to illegal immigrants? Does this mean illegals will decide Michigan elections?

***

FROM THIS WEEK’S Wall Street Journal: the lowest unemployment in 50 years at 3.7 percent, taxes decreased for 60 percent of working Americans, increased wages, consumer confidence, spending, home mortgages, GDP and of course, jobs. This is all due to Trump’s business acumen, leadership and willingness to fight. Thank you, President Trump.

I LOVE AMERICA, but I want to see some changes. Wanting to change a problem is not the same as hating America.

***

BICYCLES — SAME ROAD, same rules.

***

GUN OWNERSHIP IS a constitutional right, not a human right. Not the same as healthcare. And yes, the infant mortality rates, immunization rates, overall citizen health, life expectancy, etc. in the U.S. are poor compared to other nations because our lifestyle is different than the others.

***

WE HAVE GROUPS in the U.S. not immunizing children because it is trendy. We have leftists promoting pro-choice including late-term abortions increasing our infant mortality. We have a general population addicted to high fructose corn syrup, energy drinks, electronics and their couches. These are personal choices.

***

I BELIEVE THAT the Democrat/left has divided our nation with identity politics, unwilling to defend our borders, giving benefits to illegal immigrants, increasing taxes on hard working citizens, not supporting our police, border patrol, ICE or DHS. They have viciously attacked President Trump with slander, lies, and phony investigations.

***

I’M SO SICK of politics and politicians. A POTUS has to spend half of his/her four-year term campaigning for the next four years. What a terrible waste of time. Let’s elect a president for one six-year term — then some real work could be accomplished.

***

SO, LET’S SAY good health is not a human right, as some believe. Then, you condemn those who don’t have insurance to poor health? ‘All people are created equal,’ but some (rich people or those with good insurance) are more equal. How about caring about your fellow man? Where are your principles?

***

ON THE TERRIBLE handwriting article. I see many people holding a writing instrument in the strangest ways, like they were never trained in school and at home. I think the reliance on keyboards is also a factor.

***

ALL CITIZENS: PLEASE read the 24-page Green New Deal proposal on Congress.gov. You’ll be surprised to see the social justice equality mandates for housing, jobs, unions, equal pay etc., for everyone, in addition to our congressional flunkies making decisions about our nation’s economy and your life.

***

I SAW BULLET-resistant backpacks the other day running errands.

***

MASS SHOOTINGS ARE a behavior problem. A behavior problem due to mental illness. The family and friends of disturbed people need to get them into treatment. Mental illness is treatable. Take responsibility for your family: take action.

***

WE HAVE NOW seen all of the Democrats running in 2020 for president and the Republicans are comfortable. I would like to think the Democrats have someone better some place.

***

BECAUSE CONGRESS DID nothing, Obama implements an Immigration Action Plan. Congress still did nothing. Trump issues an executive order reversing some/all of Obama’s plan. In last week’s debate, four do-nothing senators and one do-nothing congresswoman had the gall to speak out about Trump’s immigration policy. Change the laws.

***

REALLY HOLLY VILLAGE leadership (Council, Administration, DDA). On Wednesday, Broad Street is shut down due to utility work and Saginaw is shutdown with the misplaced car show yet there was no detour markings or signage to keep commuters from driving into that mess.

***

I LOVE THIS summer! I love my lake.

TO THE MAN and women standing outside Walmart collecting signatures for pro-life, may I suggest you not aggressively attack mothers with young children in their carts. I now have my 8-, 6-, and 3-year-old asking what an abortion is. Very unacceptable.

***

OUR CITIZENS DEPEND on government protection bureaus, like the environmental and consumer agencies, to protect us from fraud and deceptive practices. Trump is having them dismantled. We have $1 trillion plus deficit.

***

NO, I DON’T think ‘owning a gun’ is a human right. However, it is a constitutional right. ‘Human right’ is just slang for progressive socialists to denote their personal views.

***

I AM SHOCKED and repulsed at the vicious and vulgar verbiage from Democrat/Socialist candidates about the mass murders this past weekend. Their politicization and insensitivity of this situation were very apparent. These opportunists have no solutions and never intervened when mass shootings occurred during Clinton or Obama administrations.

YOU’VE HEARD THE slogan ‘guns don’t kill people, people kill people.’ It’s as true today as it was 50 years ago. The difference today is about 90 percent of the nation’s mental health facilities have closed in favor of group homes. One of the latest shooters was a devout liberal, a fact unreported by the media.

DO PARENTS STILL make their kids stand in the corner or is it the time out thing when it’s not really a game?

---

A HUGE THANK you to my fellow taxpayers who voted ‘no’ to the school millage tax increase. Sooner or later these money-grabbers have got to realize that money doesn’t grow on trees.

---

THE SO-CALLED repair job on the roads in and around Fenton are the poorest I’ve experienced. The only thing worse is the loose asphalt they drop and then leave. The roads are rougher now than before. Sad.

---

ALL OF THE largest mass killings in this country were committed with explosives. The worst was by aircraft. In Japan, one of the worst was by poison gas. Cell phones have caused more deaths in this country this year than guns. Why is it liberals never attack the true cause of mass shootings?

---

IT WAS REFRESHING to hear Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. say this week she knows first-hand that President Trump is not a racist. She knows him well and would know.

---

THANK YOU LINDEN Family Eye Care for fixing my glasses at the car show Wednesday. Your help was appreciated.

---

WHEN EVERYBODY STARTS carrying a gun, the cowards won’t commit anymore mass shootings.

---

TO THE WRITER regarding ‘guns are WMDs.’ Your solution has been tried in Chicago. Restricting firearms hasn’t worked so well there, because firearms are not the problem.
