"Assuming Barack Obama wins the nomination, private groups will place attack ads against him that will be far harsher than anything his opponent would come up with, and the only thing that can protect him, ironically, is the McCain-Feingold ban on free speech." - Waynesboro, Pa.
"This is to the person in Hagerstown who has a problem with the state police. Think about your gun being in a locker. Yes, it will last 40 years, however, a service weapon in all weather, holster wear, dust, will not. And not to mention shooting a few hundred rounds every year, it is bound to wear. The gun may not function properly to save a citizen's life, or even the trooper's life. So it is the taxpayer's 'duty' to make sure our public servants are equipped to preserve our lives, as well as their own." - Clear Spring
"I read a lot of complaints in Mail Call about property taxes going up, but I didn't see a lot of people at the budget hearing, demanding that the property tax rate go down. Next year, the commissioners might decide that they can raise the property tax rate, so get ready to complain in Mail Call again and see what good it will do you." - Rohrersville

"This is in regard to the Boonsboro election. Other countries literally give their lives to be able to vote, and here in America, in Boonsboro - and all over America; not singling out Boonsboro - they get ecstatic over a 20 percent turnout for voting. Eighty percent of registered voters didn't bother, and 20 percent makes people deliriously happy. Sad, sad, sad." - Hagerstown
