Mail Call - Feb. 24

February 23, 2012

“I was calling Mail Call regarding Washington County, the people who work, like out of state, like Pennsylvania, West Virginia, or Virginia, come in Maryland, I think they should pay a Maryland tax. The government should pass a law so they have to pay a Maryland tax, you know, living out of another state, and I was wondering if they did that.”

“If the Hagerstown Suns was such a moneymaking organization for Hagerstown, or any community, for that matter, then all the communities on the East Coast would be vying to get them, not trying — not to spend the money for a stadium, because they want the taxpayer to pay for where they play, so that the owners can make the money. Does that make sense?”

“I’m 75 years old, and a Christian. I’m trying hard to understand why so many people in our government cannot understand our Bible and our God. God gave Adam Eve. He said be fruitful and multiply. He did not give him Jack or Tom. If enough states pass these hideous laws, how would we ever field an army? ... Before you vote, study the candidates. May God have mercy on our country and our world.”
— Hancock

“I’m about to pull out of the gas station, and I would like to sarcastically thank President Obama for turning down the pipeline from Canada, and everything else he’s done. Since he’s been in office, things, every — all the prices have gone sky high, and gas prices especially, food prices. The thing to think about is, are you better now than you ... and for me, I say no. Get rid of Obama.”
— Williamsport

“I read with much interest in the local paper about a dinner theater business downtown was in financial trouble and may have to close. No one from the city council or the mayor offered financial assistance for this downtown business. I figured out the reason was it is a family business, not a bar, as on South Potomac Street, and the owners were not millionaires, as with the Suns. All we ... hear about is making downtown better ... business(es) that care about this complete city, not just the downtown entertainment and the North End.”
— Hagerstown
