Mail Call

June 03, 2010

"I can't help but notice the lack of coverage of the SEIU protesters terrorizing the executive of Bank of America's family in this paper or others. I found it on CNN and Fox websites, but not here. This is a huge story where 14 busloads of Obama's henchmen from SEIU were on the man's porch and yard. ... This is America, this should not happen, yet no arrests were made. Do we all need to arm ourselves to be safe? Where is the story?"

- Smithsburg




"Well, Boonsboro caller, I see you Obama supporters have yet again resorted to the race card, claiming anyone who criticize or opposes him is just a bigot. What nonsense. Unless you have the delusion that you can actually read minds, it's obviously a way for you to discredit any and all opposition to Obama without ever having to justify or defend his policies. So call me names all you like. I'll only redouble my opposition to his policies."

"Oh, right, Funkstown, let's raise the property taxes and let's pay to have the streets cleaned. I've lived here for 32 years and nobody's ever cleaned the streets, but we're paying a contractor to come clean the streets. Residents were not notified of this. They just put the signs up. Good luck finding a place to park your car."

- Funkstown




"This is for the Frederick, Md., caller who keeps calling in with these Republican rants, in to Mail Call. Today's rant is about JPMorgan Chase and BP Solar closing and moving jobs out of Frederick, and it's all Obama's fault. It's not Obama's fault that corporate greed wants to move their companies overseas so they can get lower labor costs. This is because Republicans don't want to regulate big business, and let them do anything they want. And this is the people he represents."

- Hagerstown




"Today is May 28, and on the 12 p.m. noon news ... I saw something that I could not believe. Mr. President is going to be in Chicago for a party, so his vice president will be laying the wreath at the grave of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington, Va. I'm 75 years old and I served ... my family served this country for over 150 years. I can't remember when the president did not place the wreath on the Unknown Soldier's grave."

- Falling Waters, W.Va.




"Well, here we go again. We got phone books, and I know the phone bill will go up again. It does it every time, but what can you do? Nothing. But I don't appreciate these phone books this often in the mail. What do we do with them? Throw them away."

- Boonsboro




"As a city taxpayer, I have a suggestion for the mayor and the chief of police. Now, we have plenty of special police out here, working with drugs, working with gangs and whatnot, but the regular fellows that are out there cruising the different quadrants of the city, tell these guys, every traffic violation, put some paper on it. That's right, write more tickets. It will help the economy, as far as the city. It will cure some of these people that have a problem with obeying basic traffic rules and regulations."

- Hagerstown




"I didn't think Clinton was president any more, but I guess he is, if he's offering people jobs in the White House, especially if Obama is so inept in his job that he doesn't know what he's doing."

- Boonsboro




"My dad's a decorated veteran, and he's probably rolling over in his grave on this Memorial Day weekend. Everything that he fought against in World War II - it's a shame. Our largest competitor, all of our jobs are going to China, we're in debt to China, the economy of this country, the communists. We have not learned anything, cannot be trusted. We have no middle class in this country, and Washington, D.C., can't get anything done."

- Hagerstown




"The conservatives are going crazy because President Obama will not be going to Arlington National Cemetery for Memorial Day. Instead he'll be going to another national cemetery. They seem to forget that Ronald Reagan did not go twice to Memorial Day services at Arlington. The first George Bush never went to Memorial Day services at Arlington, and President George W. Bush, who started two wars, missed the first two years' Memorial Day services at Arlington."

- Sharpsburg
