TO THE COMMENTER of the week, I think I can speak for many other Fentonites who made small town Fenton their home many years ago – I don’t want to make my town a destination city. If that’s what you like, there are many already out there. Pick one.

***

I KEEP SEEING Fentonites complaining about their DDA spending when the reality is that their DDA is doing exactly what it is supposed to do.

***

WITH ALL THE bickering between the Republicans and Democrats, I think this is a perfect time to eliminate political parties altogether and become one — Americans.

***

DEMOCRATS, IF THE lives of you and/or your family and friends have benefited from Trump’s policies then vote for the candidates who will support those policies. Remember, no matter who you publicly support, how you actually vote is private.

***

EXAMPLES OF LEGALIZING marijuana include target marketing toward youth, the lower income classes and other vulnerable segments of our population the very same way that big tobacco advertised. In an age where we see success against tobacco use, it is insane to see this type of pandering for recreational marijuana.

***

THE CARAVAN of illegal immigrants headed for our southern border is an assault on our nation. Anyone who sees it different needs to take up residence in another nation. One where socialism and anarchy reign supreme. You should feel right at home there.

***

I LOVE THAT Fenton is investing into structures and beautifying the city. It’s great for all our property values. But what about our youth? What does Fenton have to offer other than school supportive activities and parades that are nothing but advertisement with fire trucks at the end?

***

DON’T BE FOOLED by Proposal 3 language. It appeals to the average voter because it offers straight ticket voting. But, the additional language is nothing more than a short cut to fraudulent voting proposed by slick liberals. Same day register and voting; along with anytime, anyone absentee votes is a direct pathway to voter fraud. Vote NO.

***

IF SOCIAL SECURITY and/or Medicare are part of your retirement plan, or if your parents are receiving benefits, vote Democrat.

***

I appreciate our coaches, it’s a tough job. But my son hasn’t played in any game, not even one play. That is just not right. Every kid should play no matter what the circumstances. Please think about the kids not just the win and loss record. Thank you coach.

***

HOW CAN I get a Fenton absentee ballot? When I lived in Holly for the last 25 years, they automatically sent me an application. All I get from Fenton are copies to vote in person. I am 85 years old and can no longer drive. (Editor’s note: Call Clerk Sue Walsh at 810-629-2261 and she will help you.)

***

THEN FBI DIRECTOR Comey did find evidence of wrongdoing while investigating Hillary. Just because they didn’t prosecute doesn’t make her innocent. The Republicans didn’t push the issue because they were busy winning an election, not deleting emails. Don’t blame the Republicans because the Democrats sent the wrong candidate to the primaries.

***

PLEASE EITHER TAKE down or improve your American flag garden display. American flags should not touch the ground. I politely informed your employees twice and they did nothing to correct it.

***

PLEASE EXPLAIN TO me how having a more diverse community affects you personally? All I see in diverse communities are higher amounts of educated individuals and higher property values.

***

QUESTION: HOW DO you identify the diversity of a group? You segregate and count people based upon their race. The exact same act as a racial supremacist. If you want to reject racism, then reject diversity.

***

TO THE ONE who says economic expansion began in 2010. Please explain how increasing regulations and taxes cause economic expansion.

***

TAX AND SPEND? Only 26 percent of your city of Linden tax bill goes to the city. The city is not the problem with your taxes.

***

THE HOT-LINER WHO stated that the ‘Fenton football coaches are destroying the future of the game’ could not be more correct. During the Holly game at Fenton, many skilled juniors didn’t get to play even though the score was 42-0 at halftime.

***

YEAH RIGHT, CLINTON was innocent; just ask Obama and his justice department. Circumstantial evidence works just as well to prove guilt. Russian company buys 20 percent uranium stores, Clinton Foundation gets more than $130 million. Hillary goes to bed while U.S. embassy is under attack and does not demand military send help. Four died.

***

GROUPS ADVOCATING FOR racial inclusion and groups calling for racial purity all define an individual based upon race. As such, both groups are racist. The diversity advocate is no different from the racial supremacist. Morally, they are equal.

***

THERE IS NOTHING one state, country or mankind can do to affect climate. Al Gore said 10 years and we were dead. That was over 15 years ago. We have reduced CO2 emissions by 12 percent just modernizing our industries. India and China are still decades behind our economy and they will do nothing to slow their growth. Read and learn.

***

DONALD TRUMP’S GOAL before 2020 is to make James Buchanan the second worst president ever.

***

I FOR ONE know that the DDA is a useful tool to keep taxes that are raised within the local jurisdiction instead of sending them to the county (MTA, county, DDA, sheriff, MCC and others). I also know the DDA is not permitted to spend those dollars outside of their specified, legally binding district. Vote yes for the roads to be fixed and get over it.

***

NATIONAL STRATEGY IS something the general public frequently is not aware of, however, with the Saudi Arabian killing of a journalist. Saudi Arabia is our only ally in the Middle East that supports our interest against Iran and Middle East terrorists. Witness our actions after the 9/11 attack.

***

WE SHOULD ALL be disgusted by the Democratic left. Nassar and Cosby had mounds of evidence against them. Kavanaugh had zero, none. Kavanaugh went through six FBI investigations. The ‘left’ used Ford to try to promote their rhetoric. They couldn’t care less what happens to her now. Shameful.

***

IF YOU’RE NOT white and want to force your religious beliefs on others, you had better vote Democratic in November.

***

I HAVE WRITTEN several letters to Debbie Stabenow over the years, concerning various bills before the Senate. Every time her response to me was that, ‘she believed a certain way and that was how she was going to vote.’ She’s a follower of her party. Vote John James for Senator. We need someone new.

***

CONSERVATIVES COWARDLY? WOW. Thanks for making me laugh aloud today. Best chuckle I’ve had in a long time.

"IF YOU’RE NOT white and want to force your religious beliefs on others, you had better vote Democratic in November."

So if I'm white and want to force my religion on others I should vote Republican?
