Mail Call

October 31, 2009

"This is to the caller who called in about asking if it was illegal to sell food that you get from a food bank. The answer is yes, it is illegal to sell that food, and please call us at Food Resources, 301-733-4002, to give us more information."

"Thank God for Fox News. It's probably the only thing keeping Obama, besides the Drudge Report, from taking over the rest of the U.S."

-- Hagerstown

"In regards to the Christian people not being allowed to wear pins to work or a cross on their T-shirt, but Muslims can wear them beanie caps on their head and that's OK because that's for them, but if a Christian wears something to symbolize their religion, that's wrong and not allowed. So what's fair is fair. If a Christian can wear a shirt with a cross on it, then that's great, but if they can't, then make the Muslims take off the beanie caps. And God bless you."

"I see where Sen. Cardin, on the floor of the Senate, wants to vote for cap and trade, which is gonna cost everybody about $1,700 more a year for electricity. I also know that he voted not too long ago, he voted yes on a bill to eliminate guns in the forests, national forests, and that didn't pass. I think you ought to call him on the phone and tell him to help us, not them. Have a nice day."

-- Hagerstown

"Instead of playing golf every weekend and basketball, Obama needs to realize that there are 79 American soldiers that died this month alone in Afghanistan. He needs to make a decision now on to whether to pull out or increase the troops."

-- Boonsboro

"These people who keep calling in complaining about people driving without their lights on when it's raining, and that it's a law, are the same people who, when driving, are talking or texting on their phones, and either causing or almost causing an accident. Texting when driving is also against the law, which is more dangerous."

-- Hagerstown

"I'm commenting about the people with their dogs. There are some people out there that do know how to take care of their animals such as dogs, and they do curb their dogs, but there are some people ... they walk around like they own the world and that that's their dog. Well, when you walk outside in the public, you need to, for your dog's protection as well as for others, in consideration is to carry a doggie bag or something. ... You need to clean up after your dog. It's disgusting that some people don't clean up after their dogs and they should."

-- Hagerstown

"I would like to know if there is a telephone number, local, for the labor board. If there is a phone number for that and anyone knows it, would you please put it in Mail Call?"

-- Halfway

"If the BOE wants to cut the budget, maybe they should start with the superintendent's pay first."

-- Hagerstown

"If you get a pet, he should be part of your family, not chained to the bottom of the yard, to lovingly look at your house and wait for attention from you. My neighbors recently got a new dog, and I thought that was great, until a few days later I seen it chained in the back yard, and here comes the rain and the mud and everything else. Why do people get pets if they're not going to do it like that? They're part of your family."

-- Greencastle, Pa.

"How many Republicans voted for a budget increase and a pay raise for themself? That's called being a socialist."

-- Hagerstown

"I find it hilarious that people call in complaining about dogs being tied outside on their leashes, when you have human beings right now that have nowhere to live."

-- Hancock

"This is to Mr. Kerchevel and Mr. Aleshire, our county commissioners. Hurray for you -- you voted yes. This is to Terry Baker, William J. Wivell and Mr. Barr. Suppose you need a support technician and they're not there because you wouldn't break the tie, and the other two voted no."

-- Hagerstown

"I have heard on and off for quite a few years that back when the Turks were in power, long, long ago, that they could sharpen their swords to such a fine edge that they could throw a silk scarf in the air, and as it came floating down and hit the edge of the sword, it would end up in two pieces as the sword went through it. Is that in fact possible and is it in fact a fact?"

-- Hagerstown

"Has anyone noticed that violence has really escalated in all the wars that we're stuck in since Obama was given the Nobel Peace Prize? These other countries are laughing at us, and I can't really blame Obama, even though I didn't vote for him. He's just listening to his advisers and of course, big business, like all presidents, Democrat and Republican. The taxpayers just gonna have to step forward and say, 'hey ... why are our troops over there fighting these wars, telling these people to live like the Americans live?' They don't care about us."

-- Hagerstown
