You Said It

November 13, 2006

"I just want to tell the Democrats in office again, in control in the House, and I want to know if they can walk the walk as well as they can talk the talk."

- Hagerstown




"Responding to the caller who states that the $90/Month Social Security Insurance deduction can be waived - who then pays the bill? The point to be addressed until The Herald-Mail edited the comment was why does the working man always have to pay for insurance while others such as refugees and illegals do not?"




"Of all the county commissioners that they picked, I can't believe they voted John Munson out. He's the only one besides Wivell that helped the taxpayers out, that voted against tax increases and everything else. I just can't believe the people in Hagerstown and Washington County. John Munson, I'm sorry, but what comes around goes around. They'll find out when their taxes starts going up, not unless Mr. Wivell can help to keep them down. As far as the rest of them, they're out there for more growth and more taxes. God bless them all, but I pity the taxpayers."

"Now that some people that was gung-ho for this misadventure in Iraq, sending others to fight and die, got freed up from their job, such as George Allen, Rick Santorum, etc., maybe they can go and pitch in there. Maybe they could take Dick Cheney with them, too."

- Sharpsburg




"It's Wednesday morning, and I woke to a pouring-down rain. However, I saw a huge ray of sunshine; democracy has survived. Ultimately, the American people become the decider."

- Hagerstown




"I see where old Rummy is getting replaced. Didn't President Bush just say last week that Rumsfeld was gonna stay as long as he was president? Isn't that called flip-flopping? The chairs aren't even cold yet and the Dems already got the president running scared."

- Hagerstown




"If you didn't vote this year, don't even bother calling in to the (You Said It) column and complaining, OK?"

- Hancock




"Food for thought: One, eliminate the two-party political system. Two, legalize drugs. Three, immigration should have been stopped 25 years ago. Four, tipping is obsolete. Time for the employers to step up to the 'plate.' Five, has the Middle East ever been at peace? Will they ever be at peace?"

- South Hagerstown




"Today is a good day to be a Democrat. The House, the Senate ... two years from now, we'll have a Democrat president."

- Clear Spring




"This is to those young folks up at Hancock High School who spent the night out in the cold to bring the plight of the homeless to recognition. I applaud their efforts, but I feel one night isn't quite enough. They need to do it for at least a month to really know what it is like to be on the streets, homeless - have to look around for food and a place to get out of the rain. Still, I applaud their efforts and I give them great congratulations."

- Hagerstown




"I tried to vote at (Fountain Rock Elementary School) on Election Day and had to sit in my car 10 minutes waiting for a place to park - reason being that the PTA had a meeting at the same time at the same school on Election Day. I want to congratulate the PTA for their wonderful thoughts in doing this."

- Hagerstown




"I'd like to respond to whoever put the article in the newspaper about the 76-year-old mother who is upset because she doesn't have a good prescription plan. The fact is she does have a prescription plan. It may not be as good as the person who answered the article. Not everybody has the opportunity to have a good prescription plan, for whatever reason."




"To all Washington County or Frederick County residents, thanks for having a conscience, voting for Republicans. Watch gas prices and any tax a Democrat can put on you. I feel your pain, being a West Virginia Republican. For once, there isn't a West Virginia joke. P.S., Pennsylvania: Rick Santorum has brought more money and attention to your state than any professional team that stays there, outside of Mr. Rooney, and you voted him out of office - unbelievable. I hope you enjoy your next four years."

- Martinsburg, W.Va.




"This is to Mr. William Staley. I and many others voted for you because our students need to have more vocational trade programs in schools. However, your comment in The Daily Mail makes me angry. You must force the other members of the board to listen and take action on this. Do not roll over and play dead on command, as so many others have done before you. If they don't listen, keep talking. Parents, kids and teachers are counting on you to change the limited trade options currently offered in Washington County. Please find a way."

- Washington County




"President Bush and Donald Rumsfeld have been saying all along that all the Democrats want to do is cut and run. Isn't it interesting now, that with a lot of Mr. Rumsfeld's buddies being defeated in the election, they're not gonna be around to back up his pitiful policies and strategies, he's the one who has cut and run."

- Hagerstown
