Mail Call

May 25, 2010

"I don't have any proof, but there's no doubt in my mind whatsoever that the problems in the Gulf, the tornadoes in Oklahoma, and more than likely, the torpedoing of a South Korean ship by North Korea, is the Bush administration's fault. No doubt in my mind."

- Hagerstown




"Republicans are always screeching about how they want to take 'their' country back. Good for them. Democrats, however, want to move 'our' country forward."

- Waynesboro, Pa.




"Washington County Roads Department, take the 30 mph sign on Eastern Boulevard at the turn near the Y, and the 'No turn' sign on Chartridge, and put them someplace where you have intelligent people that know what they mean. They sure aren't doing any good where they are now. I live in Potomac Manor. I know."

- Washington County




"I live behind the Longmeadow Shopping Center area ... Terrace Hills, and my neighbor's radio is out there just blaring to beat the band, and I would just like to say that because, you know, the summer is coming, it would be nice if people could keep their music in their own yard so that everybody could enjoy their yard and enjoy the nice weather, because not everybody loves blaring rock music and blaring country music."

"Does anyone know a number I could call to stop all this mail coming for donations? I can hardly keep myself, and do not have extra to send to all these people, and I get something every day and every day."

- Hagerstown




"I want to thank the caller that made the point about the flooding in Nashville. He's right - under Bush we had lack of federal response, crime and looting in New Orleans, but under Obama we had fast federal response, no crime or looting in Nashville. Thank you, President Obama."

- Hagerstown




"Regarding the Mail Call about Armed Forces Day not being recognized by our local media and governments, what a shame that we have to remind them about an American holiday to honor our brave American military. Our American holidays seem to be second-rated days anymore. ... The U.S. military is protecting everyone, no matter where the need may be. Let's try to remember their service to us by remembering the days set aside to honor them."

- Sharpsburg




"To the caller from Kearneysville who was called at 12:43 a.m. by somebody claiming to be from the Census: I think that was 'vishing,' which is the voice equivalent of phishing on the Internet. It's a type of identity theft. I hope you didn't give them any personal information."

- Chambersburg, Pa.




"To the Waynesboro Democrat who is concerned about how much Sarah Palin is making: Let's talk about Al 'Greeny' Gore, who just bought a $9-million-dollar home on the left coast with the money he got from preaching global warming."

- Hagerstown




"Service station owners, do you know how to multiply? Because I do. Oil went down 22 percent. That comes to $65. And if you would take oil at what it is right today, it's only supposed to be three times a barrel of oil is supposed to be what the price of gasoline is. So that comes to $2.25. So come on, get the prices down. Haven't you price-gouged us enough?"

- Clear Spring




"So, right after BP Solar packs up and moves abroad, O'Malley and his fellow Democrats in the legislature pass and sign a bill forcing utilities to buy solar power, thus unnecessarily raising our electric rates yet again - the last thing we need in this economy - supposedly to create jobs in the solar industry. Well, I'm sure the Chinese are very grateful to them, but I'm outraged."

- Frederick, Md.




"I'm calling, I think Obama will take away TV stations, radios, computers, telephones. I think the FCC will take control of all that before his next election, so he can control all the news and all the people, and know what's going on and check their private business. So I think you better ... and vote for whatever he wants. He has Harry Reid still there, and Nancy Pelosi. They're going to do whatever he commands."

- Hagerstown




"Everyone thinks Obama's doing such a great job. My opinion is I just saw in Friday's paper, another credit card company's going to cut 600 jobs. And on top of that, in Saturday's paper, now Obama's going to pick on the truckers. You let the truckers go on strike and see what happens to the U.S. I'd like to see them do it myself. They need to bring this country down a little bit more."

- Hancock




"It is not ironic that Chris Dodd, one of the architects of our current economic disaster, has drafted and is spearheading the so-called economic reform bill. This bill is nothing more than another power grab of our government, and does nothing to address the corruption and abuse that have led to our current problems. It is interesting that reform of both Fannie and Freddy are not included. If they were, they might actually expose Mr. Dodd's culpability in our current situation."

- Chambersburg, Pa.




"You know, I've seen a lot in my lifetime, but after yesterday, I've seen it all when the Democrats stood up in the House and gave Calderon, the Mexican president, a standing ovation for talking and - about the Arizona law. I really don't believe it. ... I guess the Democrats just don't get it; 67 percent of the American population agree with what Arizona does, 64 percent of the American population didn't want health care. So I hope we show it at the polls in November."

- Williamsport
