Mail Call

June 09, 2009

"Today is June 6. Yesterday, June 5, my special grandson graduated and I was not invited. How could they be so mean when I have been very good to them? I'll never get to see him graduate now. This has hurt me really bad - broke my heart. We loved each other." - Mount Lena

"I hope the taxpayers are paying attention to all the money President Obama is spending for his own family's pleasure. It is more than most of us will spend in a lifetime." - Hagerstown

"This is in response to a person from Shepherdstown, W.Va. I guess this has got to do with voters in the state of Georgia and the rest of the states. ... If you're not a citizen of the U.S., you shouldn't be able to vote in any state. You shouldn't be able to draw welfare and you shouldn't be able to draw Social Security for not working." - Hagerstown


"Isn't it wonderful the anointed one has appointed another czar? Imagine the outrage from the left liberal media had George Bush done anything remotely as Marxist. It's wonderful how our media embraces our fearless leader's conversion to socialism." - Maugansville

"This is for the individual in Shepherdstown, W.Va. You must not have a job. You must not have anything to do. You sit around and think up ... ideas to put in Mail Call - but I enjoy reading it, because it's fools like me that read Mail Call and call back to answer." - Hagerstown

"I really think that we need to ask President Obama how it's possible to talk out of both sides of your face." - Hagerstown

"Let's look at the Federal Reserve System's legacy: World War I, a stock market crash, the Great Depression, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, wars in the Middle East, taxes, inflation, rising prices, bankruptcy, America becoming the home of the fearful and home of the slave. Who are these people called the fed?" - Hedgesville, W.Va.

"Since when does Mail Call run the government of the U.S.? President Obama or President Bush had no rule over gas prices at all. It's the gas companies that fix the gas prices, and then they raise it about five cents more to make a little more money. It's not run by the U.S. government." - Hagerstown

"I wish you would quit putting these comics of Obama in the paper, because he doesn't need any help being funny. He looks bad anyhow." - Appletown

"I'm calling in response to the lady who was in Mail Call yesterday, about the child support issue. She is absolutely right. I have four children and I'm experiencing the same problem with the state of Maryland and the Department of Social Services. They do need to take down their slogan that said 'Behind everything we do is the face of a child,' because it should say 'Behind everything we do is the face of the deadbeat fathers that live in Maryland.'" - Hagerstown

"I don't know if I'm off-base with this or not, but I'm wondering how much money in the Maryland budget is allotted for Maryland Public Television. And the reason I'm asking this is I have seen Maryland Public Television vehicles with state license plates. Now maybe I'm wrong with what I'm looking at, but something just doesn't seem right here. Maybe someone can call in and explain this to me." - Hagerstown

"God created evolution. Adam and Eve is just a story in the Bible. Please educate yourself in reality." - Hagerstown

"This is in response to the person who called in that used to live in Hagerstown, that moved to Shepherdstown, W.Va., and feels that they can still have a say about Hagerstown because they love it. Well, if you love Hagerstown so much then why did you leave and go to West Virginia? So no, since you live in West Virginia, you don't have a say any more than anybody else that does not live in Hagerstown does not have a right to say anything about Hagerstown." - Hagerstown

"I want to see if anybody out there agrees with me that the people that go to the doctors and they have their medical card and their assistance card from the state get the best treatment and the fastest treatment, and then they're sent to the hospital for really no reason and they stay because they know that they're gonna get their money and they don't have to pay for anything ... and the rest of us who have to pay are lucky to get a hamburger from the dollar meal." - Hagerstown

"You watch the evening news and it says oil prices have gone up that day, and sure enough, the next morning gas prices have gone up 5 to 10 cents ... The evening news says oil prices have dropped today, but the next morning the gas prices haven't dropped. Why? Because this, my friend, is called gouging and no matter who's in office it will continue because the most powerful and key politicians are getting big kickbacks from the oil companies." - Hagerstown

"About the sheriff catching the bank robbers: Right place, right time, right man. Good job." - Hagerstown
