Mail Call - April 7

April 07, 2011

“This is about Monday, March 28’s Mail Call, about the motorcycles. Amen. We live on a corner, there’s a bar at the end of the street, and every summer they just stop here on the corner because there’s a red light, and just keep revving up their motorcycles. We can’t even hear the TV. And about the stink bugs, I think they’re genetically engineered, and I think that some company has, already has the cure for that and is just trying to make a million dollars for people to buy their product.”

— Hagerstown



“I just wanted to make a remark about President Obama. He thought it was right to go into Libya because of the persecution and the killing of the civilians, but yet the same man, President Obama, and the Democrats, thought it was wrong for George Bush to take the American troops into Iraq, when that man was exterminating his people. So you tell me who’s right. Something doesn’t make sense here. So anyway, just wanted to state my opinion.”

— Hagerstown



“I have called in several times in regard to serious situations regarding our defense here in the U.S. Here China is building up, and they want to condemn South Korea for practicing, and Russia, North Korea and China are the countries we got to worry about. But no, we just let them go. OK, we make China rich. It’s time we put the merchandise in Hagers-town and let the people build it theirself.”

— Hagerstown



“The news is that Medicare payments to be increased because of the cost to it. Maybe they should check the medical profession for costs. Billing for office visits, anywhere from $300 to $600, procedures you never had during that visit, billing them for it, billing for other physicians you never saw or heard of, from the same visit.”

— Hagerstown



“In response to the two Hagerstown callers: How can anyone be jealous of someone who puts our country in debt, takes jobs away, won’t drill for oil, and has no experience whatsoever as to taking care of our country and the people? And to the other Hagerstown caller who said we didn’t want President Obama to look good: He took care of that hisself. He doesn’t need our help on that one.”

— Hagerstown



“Why doesn’t a journalist delve into the amount of money that the Obama administration has given to Libya for this war and everything, and find out why we’re doing that, when we barely can make ends meet in our country as it is?”

— Hagerstown



“Personally, I think the president did as good a job as possible with his Libyan speech, except I would have kept it shorter and more to the point. This time the people of the nation involved actually inquired as to whether we would come to their party, please, and the weapons being used were there for all to see. No hidden WMDs, just rocks and rifles.”

— Hagerstown



“I’m calling about the article in Tuesday, March 29’s paper about an 11-year-old girl who was raped in California, by eight or more people — eight or more teenagers. These teenagers need to be neutered. There’s no sense, no justification for actions like ... if they are doing these things at 14 through 19 years old, hard to tell what they’re going to be doing as they get older. They should be simply be neutered, and that’s it. This stuff has to stop.”

— Washington County



“Once a week you could dedicate an entire page in our paper about feel-good events. Young, mid-age and elderly who have donated both time and monetary items to make life a better place for those less fortunate in the Tri-State area. I suggest the name ‘Good Stuff Page’. I know a lot of good is occurring in the area that is not being recognized, and I’m darn well and good and tired of reading all the doom and gloom.”

— Marlowe, W.Va.



“Concerning the person that accidentally almost drank a stink bug that said it was the newest/funniest stink bug issue ... I can beat that one. Last week, I was playing slots ... and when I sat down to play I discovered a stink bug sitting on a seat in front of a slot machine next to me. He looked as though he wanted to play, so I put my ticket in his machine and pressed the play button for him, and he got nothing on the first spin. On the second spin, he won $20. I was thinking about bringing him home and having him play Powerball or Mega Millions for me.”

— Sharpsburg



“I am not a supporter of Newt Gingrich, but I am a Christian. The caller from Sharpsburg who thinks Mr. Gingrich should be stoned has taken scripture out of context. Because Jesus died for our sins, we no longer live under Old Testament law but by his grace. Jesus said, ‘Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.’ He had no takers. He then told the adulteress, ‘Go and sin no more.’ If Newt Gingrich has confessed his sin and asked for forgiveness, he has been forgiven.”

— Greencastle, Pa.
