"Why is it that people with higher positions or higher salaries in some businesses don't have to pay for health insurance for themselves or their families?

"This is Barbara and I am calling about the sister city that the mayor wants. Everyone is calling in against what he wants. I think now he knows how we feel. So let it drop now, let's have something more interesting in here. Think about something else to do. I will never vote for you ever again."

"What a great job these men in Boonsboro has done in cleaning up the curbside stuff that people sat out on the curb this week. I think everyone should recognize them for it."
