Mail Call

May 27, 2010

"I was reading Mail Call Sunday, the Democratic Party's been in complete control for four years, every bill passed in Congress and the Senate. Obama had no experience. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are passing bills to take away our freedoms and our constitutional rights. And they still want to blame Bush for all that's taken place in the last four years. What are they doing?"

"About this thing with immigration, when the president of Mexico was here with all the hoopla, his speech spoke to us Americans as mistreating migrant workers with papers. I did not detect any words on the fact that his country jails people who enter illegally or that Mexicans were coming here illegally and if he thought that there was anything wrong with that. This whole mess can be laid at the feet of the U.S. Congress for not enforcing the federal law, and their bed partners corporate America."

"On gun control: An anti-gun politician at a recent rural elementary school assembly asked the audience for total quiet. Then, in the silence, he started to slowly clap his hands once every few seconds, holding the audience in total silence. Then he said into the microphone, 'Children, every time I clap my hands together, a child in America dies from gun violence.' Then a young student with a proud redneck drawl pierced the quiet and said, 'Well, dummy, stop clapping!'"

"On a recent visit to the post office to redeem an International Reply Coupon, the manager stated that redemption of the IRCs was discontinued. Other post offices have continued to redeem these coupons and have stated that they are indeed valid. I thought that all post offices had the same policy for customer services. Now am I to presume that each individual post office determines its own unique regulations for customer service?"

"A little bit of help for the county commissioners: Harp Road off Jefferson Boulevard goes almost all the way to the rear of Hagerstown Community College. If they would open that road up, you'd probably take one-third of the traffic off of Robinwood going to HCC. Please consider it. Open up Harp Road and make a rear entrance to the college."

"To the Hagerstown caller, reference phrase 'neck of the woods:' According to the American Heritage Dictionary of idioms, copyright 2010, the phrase dates back at least to the mid-1800s, and alludes to a neighborhood or region, particularly to a forest settlement, as in 'I will be in your neck of the woods next week. Will you be home?'"
