Mail Call - June 9

June 09, 2011

“God, I hope nobody is falling for this Palin hoopla. Anybody that believes that this woman could run a Dairy Queen is completely out of their minds. I used to have respect for John McCain — I mean, a hundred percent respect, but right now I wouldn’t give him a dime if he was standing on the corner and needed a dime for a phone call — just for him bringing her into the public eye. She is the most egotistical — there’s only one person more egotistical than her, and she had pizza with him yesterday: Donald Trump.”

— Hagerstown



“To the person from Blue Ridge Summit who said that President Obama is an embarrassment to this country: You have it backward. This country is an embarrassment to Obama. We always try to brag to the world how wonderful, fair and moral we are, yet as soon as we get an African-American president, all they try to do is tear him down. A lot of hypocrisy here, don’t you think?”

— Hagerstown



“This is in reference to the county removing the recycle bins because people use them as a trash dump site. Why wouldn’t they just have a site there and have someone who was unemployed or a homeless person or whatever, they could monitor it, and when the county picks it up and recycles it, a percentage of the profits from the recycling goes to the person that monitored that site, and it would help them and help the county both. And that way some unemployed person could make a few dollars.”

— Williamsport



“You know, I’d like to know that delegate from Maryland, taking up these signatures ... I’d like to see, know where his parents, his grandparents come from, because you know, I don’t know why these politicians don’t let these children alone. You know, they bother the schoolchildren, and if they don’t have something else to do then I don’t even know why they run for an office. And the worst thing they could do is pick on children.”

— Hagerstown



“I am tired of people talking badly about Del. Neil Parrott. He’s doing what others probably should have done. He is trying to get the vote to the people, which we have the right to do. It is our tax money.”

— Hagerstown



“I live at South Pointe. Every time I try to get into a grocery store on Wilson Boulevard, cars have the entrance all blocked. Police were marking some, but I haven’t seen any of them for a while.”

— Hagerstown



“The county is complaining about the recycling bins. They should either empty them more often or add another one. Some people don’t have transportation to travel to a landfill. It’s the duty of the county to provide a recycling service, to maintain the future of our landfill. Please help.”

— Hagerstown



“I just want to remind motorists to keep an eye out for turtles crossing the streets. Just like us, they’re trying to get someplace, too, and if you are able to safely move them across the road in the same direction they were going, I’m sure they’d be very appreciative.”

— Falling Waters, W.Va.



“I’m amazed how naive the people are that say that Sarah Palin cannot be elected as president, that she does not have a chance, yet they look at the current president, President Obama, and think he’s qualified. If someone like Obama can get elected as president, believe me, anybody can get elected.”

— Washington County



“I wonder if anybody can tell me why there’s so many new motels down in the area of the mall and Wesel Boulevard. Seems to me like there’s about six of them. Seems like there wouldn’t be that many people who need a motel room, not around Hagerstown, anyhow.”

— Hagerstown



“I was up to Cedar Lawn this year — I did not get up last year, because of health reasons — and the ceremony was nice, but what I missed most was the handshake and the kind words of Don Munson, that used to be there years ago. I don’t know who they had last year, but they had a new speaker this year. Why Don Munson was not elected to the position, he’s ... our veterans 100 percent. He is a good man.”

— Mount Lena



“In reply to the Hagerstown caller who stated the Republicans did it again, Republicans claim that bailing out the auto industries was a mistake, well, the caller needs to get its news, their news from somewhere else, since just today, according to the Associated Press, the Obama administration said that the government will lose ... $14 billion from the auto industry bailout.”
