Mail Call - March 20

March 20, 2012

“What you stadium and other project advocates don’t seem to realize is that all change isn’t necessary or desirable, and it’s up to you to make a convincing case, especially to the taxpayers you always want to fund them. And what, when you resort to trying to discredit opposition ... you only prove you can’t make that case, especially because all politicians and special interest groups always claim their pet projects are necessary, desirable, will create jobs, save money, etc., and only a fool believes them, without extremely strong, objective, verifiable, definitive proof.”
— Frederick, Md.

“This is Monday morning, and reading the morning paper, I see this whole page of pictures of these happy faces, schoolchildren winning these awards, and please keep on printing them. I enjoy seeing their pictures every time I open the paper, so — their happy faces — so please keep it up. I know it makes them happy.”
— Hagerstown

“To all the folks who call in supporting President Obama: I think you fall into one of three categories. One, you’re ideologues. You’ll vote Democratic, no matter what; two, you’re in denial of all the foolish, failed policies this president tries to ram down the throats of American voters; or three, you’re some of the most misinformed ... people who ever were given the opportunity to exercise their right to vote. I urge you to research the facts regarding this president before you vote for him again.”
— Clear Spring

“I just read the article about the mail service, and I just wanted you to know, I sent a birthday card two houses down from where I’m living, and it took the lady two weeks to get her birthday card. So I guess from now on, I’ll just walk my cards to where they belong.”
— Hagerstown

“This is the caller from Hagerstown who would vote for Bozo the Clown over President Obama, even though Bozo would not be the first clown in the White House. That distinction goes to Jimmy Carter, and the second distinction would be to Barack Obama — both of them the most incompetent politicians I’ve ever seen.”
— Hagerstown

“I want to make a comment about this David Limbaugh, says his brother is so sorry and heartbroken about what’s going on, making him the victim, after all the names he called that Sandra Fluke and all the women in America, calling them feminist Nazis, and two other women after that, and he wants us to believe that he is so sorry. I don’t think so. Every time a woman stands up for their rights, the Republican Party and the Rush Limbaughs and whoever, Fox News, comes out and starts putting them down and making them look bad.”
— Cearfoss

“I would much rather see Barbara Mikulski get an award for saving tax dollars, instead of finding, so to speak, $1 million for this Harriet Tubman foundation, for a park or some kind of dedication of some kind. But there’s $1 million of taxes, when she could have tried to save that money for something worthwhile. And please, please, somebody explain to me, and maybe the whole community, on how Art Callaham is considered a community activist.”
— Hagerstown

“The article in the paper this morning about the post office is really something else. I sent an electric check, electric bill check, back in January, and it has yet to be found. I had to pay a double light bill, plus I had to pay the late fee on it, and Allegheny or Potomac Edison doesn’t call and tell you you owe that bill, and if you don’t, then you’re going to be trouble ... I hope they get it straightened out.”
— Hagerstown

“General Motors is alive and well. Osama bin Laden is dead, and rotting in hell.”
— Hagerstown

“I would like to know why people are so ignorant as to go to church when it’s obvious they’ve got a cold, to spread germs to other people — and in restaurants also. They will bring children in, and the children will cough nonstop while they’re there, can hardly hold their heads up. I don’t understand parents who are that noncaring, and they just sit there and act like they don’t even know the child’s even there.”
— Hagerstown

“I’m a Republican, and anybody who blames the president of the U.S. — whether it be a Republican or Democrat — for gas prices, is a fool. Gas prices are high because of Wall Street and because of the turmoil in the Middle East — no other reason. Don’t you think if the president could use his executive power and order the oil companies to drop the price of gas, he would? The president ... has no control over the gas prices. So please, my fellow GOPers, don’t fall for this stuff. You cannot guarantee gas at $2.50 a gallon. That’s insane.”

“I see where our federal court, our federal appeals court, has blocked two more sections of the Alabama new illegal immigration laws. The majority of U.S. citizens want something done about the illegals, but every time we try, our very own system defeats us. It seems like we are listening more to groups from the minorities than to the majority. We better do something soon, because if we don’t, by letting these people in our country, they will be the majority.”
— Hagerstown

“Hagerstown caller, don’t they keep up your alleys, instead of wanting one through the county with the former rail bed? Your alleys run side and behind, not front and center.”
— Rohrersville
