Mail Call - June 7

June 06, 2011

“Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The founding fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go back home and work for a living.”
— Hagerstown

“Fairplay caller, when Republicans wanted to drill under Clinton, Clinton said no, it would take 10 years. When gas prices were $4 per gallon under Bush, Pelosi wouldn’t let Bush drill. You Democrats wanted her and you got your wish. Mr. President won’t permit drilling, despite the loss of jobs and our national security. Obama and his Democrats are beholden to the environmentalists, Wall Street — and besides, drilling would put a monkey wrench in Obama’s cap tax plans that will destroy jobs, businesses.”
— Hagerstown

“If you’ve noticed, there are a lot of abandoned, vacant, dilapidated buildings in Hagerstown. ... Not only are these buildings an eyesore and possibly a danger, but it is my feeling that they are just tax shelters for the wealthier. What the government needs to do is that before these type of buildings could be used as tax shelters, the owners must do something with the property, such as tear it down completely and put something nice up in its stead, or just leave the lot empty, but cared for. ... The same holds true for all over the country.”
— Hagerstown

“‘Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But the U.S. armed forces don’t have that  problem.’ — Ronald Reagan.”
— Lappans

“What’s with the people with their dogs, bringing them everywhere they go? Not everyone likes a dog licking over them, plus the barking at public places. What did these people lack in their youth? What are they missing in their life now?”
— Boonsboro

“To the person who  called in to see if other county residents could use our recycling bins in Funkstown: Sure, you will, but you’re not supposed to. Funkstown taxpayers, we pay private Funkstown taxes along with county taxes, and Funkstown taxes that we pay, pay for those recycling bins. So we would appreciate if you didn’t use them.”
— Funkstown

“Congratulations to Funkstown gym teacher Donna Wagner. She has been there for two generations at least, for my children, and ... she is just a remarkable, remarkable gym teacher, and I just wanted to give her a kudos.”
— Funkstown

“In the week leading up to Memorial Day weekend when our veterans and military men and women are foremost in our minds and prayers, the Democrats proposed a bill to increase by $100 the pay for troops serving ‘under hostile fire.’ The bill was defeated with Bartlett (Md.), Shuster (Pa.), and Capito (W.Va.) voting ‘no.’ The same representatives who voted tax breaks for the rich could not bring themselves to honor the troops who make it possible for the rich people to enjoy their riches.”
— Smithsburg
