Mail Call - June 29

June 29, 2011

“When are they going to start putting pictures on a beer can of the drunk driver killing — having somebody hanging out over the windshield, a picture like that on the beer cans, like they’re going to do on the cigarettes? This is something that’s long overdue, all the people getting killed by drunk drivers. I’m looking forward to seeing this in Mail Call.”

— Smithsburg



“I know what’s wrong with America. It’s not President Obama. It’s the people of America. They’re all idiots.”

— Hagerstown



“To the caller from Funkstown who says people from Hagerstown are coming to their little town to recycle: That’s not true. Hagerstown does pick up for their recycling. It’s the other county residents who are coming to Funkstown to recycle. It’s a county bin, we’re allowed to do it — get over it. I’ve never heard of so much whining from one little town. People in Funkstown must think they’re special. Hey, your little town isn’t that great.”

— Washington County



“Hagerstown caller, Republicans didn’t make anything worse. They have a Democratic Senate and president, too, OK? So far, Republicans haven’t passed anything. Now President Obama wants another stimulus.”

— Funkstown



“You have city cops riding in SUVs, cars, on bicycles and now dirt bikes. Why is it the only cops you see walking downtown are the ones going to court cases, while on overtime?”

— Hagerstown



“I was just wondering if anybody out there knows who wrote the script in this Casey Anthony trial. If so, could you please put it in the paper? It’s the same (person) that did the O.J. Simpson trial.”

— Hagerstown



“I heard the generals talking in front of Congress today. They have to realize, just like President Eisenhower said at the military industrial complex, they don’t run the country. The president does. They might not want to draw down right away, but it’s time to leave. Ten years is long enough. Just remember, generals, you work for the president. The president doesn’t work for you.”

— Hagerstown



“Let’s not cut too many trees down. It’s malicious to complain about your neighbor’s building code poor steps. The complainer should have the carbon footprint to their debt.”

— Hagerstown



“Eighteen months before the next presidential election, there are more important things to do. Would be nice if the Republicans would tone it down, and do the job they’re getting paid for.”

— Hagerstown



“I’m responding back to the caller who answered my call-in that President Obama does not steal. You said he does steal, because he’s taking our taxes and sending them overseas. Well, if you know what he’s doing, then he’s not stealing. So you get it straight. And that’s the American way. I don’t know where you’ve been, but that’s been the American way for years, not just with Obama, and it’s not stealing.”

— Hagerstown



“To the people complaining about the recycling bins: You shouldn’t have abused the privilege. People threw trash all around it, instead of putting it inside, and they put stuff there that wasn’t supposed to be there. Come on. And now you’re raising Cain about the teachers getting a raise, because Social Security didn’t get a raise. Well, about the Senate’s and the Congress’ expense account?”

— Hagerstown



“I went to a big tent sale the other day. Not one tent was for sale. Every advertised yard sale I’ve ever stopped by, not one person wanted to part with their yard. Same goes for every garage sale I’ve frequented. Not one person is willing to part with their garage. I received written notification, advising I won a door prize at the tent sale I’d attended. Yet another disappointment. You guessed it — no door. You can’t believe anything you read these days.”

— Smithsburg



“Concerning these programs they have for women in need, what about programs set up for men in need? I mean, I’m sure that there are some men out there who could use some help or assistance also, not only just women. I feel it should be a two-way street. Especially, women wanted the equal rights in our country, and they got equal rights, so I feel that they should be fair to both parties, men and women, not just women. Also, some of the women should accept some of the blame also in a lot of cases, instead of fingerpointing at the men.”

— Greencastle, Pa.



“Hey, Falling Waters, if you knew anything about Hagerstown, you would know that West Washington Street and West Antietam Street do intersect. They intersect where Engine/Truck 4 Fire Station is. Also the large church, I forget the name. So stay over in Falling Waters and don’t worry about Hagers-town.”

— Funkstown
