Every day you can, thank a veteran for their service. Whether they operated a phone system or jumped out of helicopters, they deserve your respect. Our veterans are the reason the United States of America stays safe and protected. ‘Thank you’ is the least you can say. Want to go the extra mile? Most of them like cookies.

Ridiculing the young for not understanding old tech is divisive. Ridiculing the old for ignoring the current fad is divisive. We all benefit from working together, combining new technology with old experience.

Wouldn’t it be nice to see scholars of the week along with the athletes of the week? There is such an emphasis on talented athletes. I was under the impression that school was about academics. Please share the wealth with those who are talented in other ways as well.

If your children resent being told what to do by you or anyone then teach them how to become their own boss.

WAS WONDERING WHO fixes the road in front of YaYa’s off Silver Lake Road. There is a big pothole there and thought I was going to bust a spring when I hit it.

CHILDREN WHO AREN’T taught how to become financially independent adults, who can find and maintain a home, provide meals, healthcare, transportation for themselves before they take on dependents, will always be dependent on someone else to pay their way, generally the American taxpayer, like generations of American families today.

A BIG THANKS to the Fenton businesses that support Veterans on Veterans Day (Applebee’s, Little Caesars, Jets).

I AM THANKFUL for Tuffy Muffler on Owen Road and Advanced Auto Parts on Fenton Road. This past month Chad and his crew and the guys at Advanced kept my family on the road. They are great and honest.

GOD PREFERS KIND atheists over hateful Christians.

I FIND IT totally absurd that my fire department cannot respond to a tier 1 emergency call if there is an ambulance within eight miles. How many lives are going to be lost because of this protocol? This town needs to pull together and protest this. Yours or a loved one’s life could depend on it.

MY THOUGHTS AND prayers go out to Gary Savoie who is living in a nursing home and found a passion and ability with his works of art. Some day, I too will be in a nursing home and hope to find a passion in daily life.

LOOK AT THE American Music Awards. Do you really want these people choosing the next American president?

THE GREAT LAKES are in imminent danger of being overrun with invasive Asian carp, now appearing on the doorstep of Lake Michigan.

DOES ANYONE REMEMBER Barack Obama telling the Russians he would have more flexibility after the elections?

BUREAUCRACY IS THE biggest threat to our Republic.

CAN SOMEONE TELL me why the home builders in this area won’t build affordable condos for people who are trying to downsize? I sold my home before I realized how impossible the situation is and it appears I’ll need to lease an apartment with a rental amount more than my mortgage.

DID YOU KNOW that there was a Democrat debate this week? Seriously, please take a close look at all of the policies of your favorite candidate. Thank you.

RIP, STEPHEN BALE. Bless you and hopefully you’ll find your angel wings since you will no longer need a wheelchair.

I DID NOT realize coaches were off limits for anonymous comments. After all, aren’t all these comments anonymous? Is everyone who writes in a coward? I think the intimidating response is interesting and I think it reinforces what is really going on.

WHEN IS U of M’s endowment fund going to be forced to divest its $2 billion investment in China over human rights abuses of its citizens? They divested in South Africa at the drop of a hat. Why not China? My guess it’s the return on investment vs. concern of citizens.

HOW TO GET me to vote for your opponent? Don’t tell me anything about you. Since you can’t think of anything good about you I’m sure I would not want to support you either.
