Mail Call - Jan. 6

January 05, 2012

“Maybe we ought to take Gov. O’Malley and Del. John Donoghue down to Virginia, and show them how state government really works. They’ve got a big surplus coming up in the next couple of years, they’re creating jobs, they’re paying less taxes, and what’s Maryland? Never have enough of money, will spend, spend, spend. Come on, guys, get your act together.”
— Hagerstown

“I’m calling about retirement. I worked at a local company for 40 years, and when I retired in 2001, I was told I’d get my health insurance, dental and everything else. They raised my insurance, and I had to pay an extra $100 out of my pocket. Then they turned out and did away with dental, eyes. So don’t believe when you retire, they tell you you’re going to get all this stuff, because you might not ever get it. The union’s involved. They’ll take it away from you to fatten their pockets.”
— Hagerstown

“I see where somebody called in and said how nice the event was, out at that cemetery, Rose Hill, out there in the South End, and I, for the first time I heard about it, and I took my family there and I thought it was great, too. I want to thank them as well, because I did not know they did that.”
— Hagerstown

“I would like to make a comment about the candlelight vigil at Rose Hill. It was beautiful. The staff did a wonderful job, but I wanted to make a comment about how rude people are. During the bagpipes playing ‘Amazing Grace,’ people were laughing and carrying on like they were at a party. I thought it was disgraceful. Such a beautiful song and a beautiful instrument, that somebody could stand there and laugh. I thought it was very disgraceful. But it was a beautiful evening, and the staff did a wonderful job.”
— Falling Waters, W.Va.

“I’m responding to a couple of these calls bashing President Obama for the work he’s doing. Where were their big mouths when Bush and Cheney were in there disrupting the country and bankrupting the country, and with his Wall Street buddies and oil mongers? Where was that Krauthammer and Limbaughs then? No, they were hiding off in a corner, helping them out and stuffing their pockets. ... Every time you get a Republican in there they mess this country up, and it takes a Democrat to bring it out of the hole.”
— Cearfoss

“I’d like to thank the town of Hagerstown for their Christmas decorations. I love to see them all the time, every year, and look forward to seeing them, and I especially like the lights and decorations at City Park. They’re always so beautiful, and I just can’t wait each year until you put them up and light them up. Thank you so very much. Please keep doing it.”
— Washington County

“Show our vets we care. Give all veterans returning home free dues to all veterans clubs; VFW, Legion, AMVETS, for all, for the first year, and give 100 percent disabled vets free for life.”
— Hagerstown
