Mail Call

August 23, 2010

"Hats off to the lady who called in about senior citizens having some values. Well, boy, this lady is right. She came from a time that she knew what self-respect was, as well as respect for others. I give this lady a lot of credit. I'm in her corner."

- Waynesboro, Pa.




"For the president to support the building of a mosque in New York near Ground Zero is pathetic. Mr. President, as 68 percent of Americans disagree with you, for once, please listen to the people. The president says this is a private issue and he didn't want to get that much involved. But he didn't say that on the issue between the police officer and the professor in one of the New England states. This is not about religion. This is about sensitivity. Build it somewhere else farther away."

- Hagerstown




"I fully support Chris Shank's letter to the editor, and getting rid of the illegal immigrants in the state of Maryland and all the states in the United States of America. Illegal immigrants are taking their jobs from our American citizens every day. We need to save our money and put Americans back on our jobs. They need to go back to their own country and work, and give Americans our jobs back and save our Americans, our homes."

"Once again, I made a phone call and it said push 1 for English and 2 for Spanish. When my grandparents came to America, no one gave them that option. They learned English, became U.S. citizens, found jobs and contributed to our great nation. They never asked for free handouts. No food stamps, free medical, welfare or Section 8 housing. We were one nation under God. My God, what has happened to our great country?"

- Mercersburg, Pa.




"This is on jobs. I'm replying to a person in Hagerstown, that you can't blame President Obama for job shortage, that you can't blame one person. This country has no jobs because jobs have been relocated to foreign countries. They are relocated to foreign countries because big business wants to get rid of the unions, and Congress and Senate and Bill Clinton, when he passed and signed the NAFTA bill, that's when your jobs went overseas. So yes, I can blame one person, Bill Clinton, for signing the NAFTA bill in the first place. He should have vetoed it."

- Hagerstown




"I'm responding to the article in today's Herald-Mail referring to Shank trying to woo unaffiliated voters. ... I know of many Democrats who have switched to Republican and I encourage all Democrats to switch party affiliations to vote for Munson."

- Smithsburg




"I would like for the Hancock mayor and council to pass an ordinance banning dogs being kept outside. There is nothing more annoying in a neighborhood than a barking dog when people are trying to sleep."

- Hancock




"In reference to the dog-barking problem on Lindsay Lane in Northgate, there is also a cat problem. Cats are running around wild, and they are killing songbirds and vegetation."

- Hagerstown




"To the person who attempted to use the Bible for their statement against same-sex marriages: The Bible also speaks against hatred, and you sound like you have so much hatred in your heart for these people. Don't you realize God hears what's in your heart, not necessarily what comes from your mouth? Please don't use a Bible to get your point across."

- Hagerstown




"I love how every single - like, a lot of the cracks from Mail Call about the BOE always turn into cracks against Barbara Ingram. ... I don't understand it. First of all, Barbara Ingram is worth every single penny that went into it. Trust me - I go there. I love it. And second of all, a lot of our money didn't come from the BOE. ... So please do us a favor and stop complaining about a school that's been built and that's giving those few hundred kids opportunities to make it big, like Broadway big. So please get your facts straight."

- Hagerstown




"I'm calling concerning that puppy that some gentleman - I'm calling him a gentleman - that dragged this dog, up there in Berkeley Springs. I hope and pray that the judge gets hold of that guy and gives him like 20 years, or hard service. Nothing but heart. He, this gentleman needs this and anybody would do a trick like that needs, really needs to go to the electric chair. ... Something should be done. I hope the inspector or whoever he is gets out on this job and tries to find this gentleman that did this."

- Hagerstown




"I'm just calling in reference to everybody busting on the correctional officers about that inmate escaping the other week. I'm going to tell you this much: 90 percent of the people out there that are complaining about it could not do the job that those people do on a daily basis - plus get paid what they get paid for it. Because they aren't getting what they deserve - no way, shape or form. You want to go on about the inmate escaping, go get a job out there and see if you can handle it."

- Hagerstown
