Mail Call

September 08, 2010

"This is an answer to the person from Waynesboro, Pa., who talked about giving George Bush credit for the surge. We wouldn't have needed the surge if George Bush wasn't responsible for having the war."

-- Washington County




"I wanted to make a comment to the person who believes in the fact that God does believe in second chances. Well, He does believe in second chances in regards to marriage. But if someone's abusive or is raping his wife or is doing anything to harm her, then you have to draw the line somewhere. I agree with you, and it's true. God does give second chances, and does believe in them. I know I do."

-- Hagerstown




"I think this is a legitimate gripe. Bill Wivell failed -- or (spoke) against giving the veterans and the disabled veterans a break on their landfill fees, so I'm urging all of my fellow veterans out there not to vote for Bill Wivell Tuesday."

-- Hagerstown




"I'm calling about this country spending money. They took a half billion dollars from Medicare, added 30,000 people that don't pay anything, and we just found out they're going to raise our Medicare $28 a month. I think that's right -- I don't know it for sure. I don't know what's wrong with the people down there. Pass the health care bill, they don't pay nothing at all for it. So where's Barbara Mikulski at?"

-- Hagerstown




"I noticed in the past couple of days, you have a section in the newspaper 'Back to Work,' and on the right part of it is two plants. Why do you always show a marijuana plant on the right part? It's the bottom plant on the right part of the Back to Work Fall Job Fair. And then it shows the marijuana plant."

-- Halfway area




"I see in today's Herald-Mail where The Herald-Mail endorses Donald Munson. This is a sad thing, in that Mr. Munson is really a Democrat making out to be a Republican. He has very little in the way of conservative views, which many of the constituents here in Washington County have, and they have been, have for a long time. Mr. Shank is running against Mr. Munson, and I hope Mr. Shank wins, so that we can get back to our conservative ways, our conservative ways of thinking."

-- Boonsboro




"I just heard on Thursday morning TV news that honey from China has chemicals in it, and it is diluted and called syrup, not honey. It comes in here from other countries. Our local honey is safe. It seems they are trying to hurt our people; baby formula, toddler toys, the dog foods. Why not trade and be friends?"

-- Williamsport




"The Sept. 2 Herald-Mail editorial on page A4 gives us a clear statement of the differences between candidates Don Munson and Chris Shank, and should be read and remembered by all Republicans on Sept. 14."

-- Hagerstown




"I'm calling about the illegal immigrants. Why doesn't the country do exactly what their country that they're from do to illegal Americans? Whatever -- if they lock them up and throw away the key, then that's what they should do to them. Deport them, whatever."

-- Hancock




"When voting this year, and any year in the future, please be smart enough to make up your own mind on who to vote for. Research the facts about the person and vote for him accordingly. Don't listen to someone else or the newspaper or whoever it might be, because a lot of times it's very one-sided. Also, Chris Shank is a very good man. Keep him in mind when you vote."

-- Sharpsburg




"About the First Amendment: Freedom of religion also means freedom from religion. I don't have to believe in the supernatural. I don't have to belong to a club or a gang. I can be in nothing."

-- Hagerstown




"Harry Truman was a leader. President Obama couldn't carry his shoes."

-- Frederick, Md.




"Just read Kathleen Parker's take on Glenn Beck's meeting in Washington. I can't believe the way she just busted on the thing. You know, here the man brings hundreds of thousands of people -- not tens of thousands, Kathleen -- and all he did was just want to bring them back together and say hey, you know, let God be in control, turn back to God and this country will straighten out, which is very true, and she just busts on him for doing that."

-- Hagerstown




"To the individual who commented that Don Munson is too old to be running for office: You might consider Roscoe Bartlett. Now there is old. He and Chris Shank are typical of the party of no. Bipartisanship is not in their vocabulary."

-- Washington County




"This goes out to Mr. Shank, for him trying to tarnish Sen. Munson's name and credibility. I am a Republican, and I support Sen. Munson, but I also support Democrats also. I feel that that's my right to support whatever candidate I want, whether it is a Republican or a Democrat. It shouldn't matter if Sen. Munson has Democratic support ... that means that Sen. Munson is looking for all constituents and not just one party and one-sided."

-- Williamsport




"This is to the caller from Hancock who is driving I-70 at 65 mph and people are passing her. What are you doing on an interstate using a cell phone? Shouldn't be doing that."

-- Hancock
