Mail Call - June 27

June 27, 2011

“Just think, if our President Obama would have worked as hard on creating jobs the last two and a half years, he would not have to be flying all over the country to try to raise money to get re-elected. Re-election would take care of itself.”

— Boonsboro



“I don’t know how these teachers can go and expect to get a raise or a step, when all the other state employees and all employees of Washington County are not getting anything. The city’s laying off, they’re cutting back, the state employees are being cut back, and yet the last year the teachers got a 1 percent raise, and they also got a $500 bonus. This year, now, June 20, I read in the paper they are going to ... and Washington County employees don’t get anything and neither do state. I’d just like to state I think it’s very unfair.”

— Halfway



“For the caller from Hancock who said Obama’s not his president: What country does he live in? And I have a suggestion. In their words who have Anthony Weiner, OK, how about George W. Bush’s words, ‘Mission accomplished.’”

— Halfway



“Since when is it acceptable to vote over the phone to raise people’s taxes, as two Greencastle school board members did?”

— Greencastle, Pa.



“I just read in Mail Call — and I want you to know that I am very, very tired of hearing people call Social Security an entitlement. We people who have worked all of our lives paid into Social Security for our entire work career. Please, please stop calling Social Security an entitlement.”

— Hancock



“Who can you believe? One Mail Caller said it was a bad thing for President Clinton to sign the NAFTA bill, another said it created 23 million jobs. What is the NAFTA bill, anyway? Also, is this true, that President Bush is the one that started China trade bill ... ? What are the facts?”

— Hagerstown



“I wish people would stop their constant rants about ‘illegals.’ There are no such things. You can have illegal people, things or activities, but not just ‘illegals.’ The word is an adjective, not a noun. If you want us to take your views seriously, you should first give us confidence in what you have to say.”

— Hagerstown
