Mail Call - April 9

April 08, 2012

“Those fighting the Affordable Care Act seem to have more support for insurance companies than for Americans with pre-existing conditions. If Obamacare is overturned, then in nine years, as a diabetic, I will have no health care. Remind me, why are we attempting to punish people for having chronic illnesses?”
— Boonsboro


“Hagerstown caller, you object to people criticizing the president. Well, for starters, ever heard of the First Amendment? And where were you for eight years when Bush was constantly subjected to vicious insults, personal attacks and vile name-calling by your fellow leftists and Democrats, far worse than anything President Obama’s gotten, and very often in Mail Call, too? And you don’t understand how people, how the paper can let anyone criticize Obama, once again proving you leftists only believe in freedom of speech for yourself, and want dissent and everyone who disagrees with you silenced, because you know you can’t win debates with facts and logic and get Obama re-elected running on his record.”
— Frederick, Md.


“I’m complaining about the political robocalls ... are just plain annoying, and then, to make things even worse, on Palm Sunday, I received four political robocalls, which I think is just deplorable. Does anyone else feel the same way? I won’t be voting for those candidates.”
— Hagerstown


“While shopping at Penn Avenue on Saturday, I dropped my wallet in the parking lot, and because of honest and caring people, I received my billfold back. I want to thank the person who picked it up and put it in at Penn Avenue, and the employees of Penn Avenue who took time to find my number and call me. To each and every one of them, I give you my thanks.”
— Hagerstown


“At least they’re keeping the library in the same place. And another thing, if the top 1 percent doesn’t have to pay more taxes, why does the bottom 99 percent have to pay so much more for premium gas?”
— Washington County


“Since the City of Hagerstown, the mayor and city council, have so much money to build a new stadium that a lot of people don’t really want, why don’t they take that money and repave these disgraceful streets that the people have to drive on through this town? They’re disgraceful. I’ve rode on a plowed field that’s smoother than most of these streets in Hagerstown.”
— Hagerstown


“A great letter to the editor from W. Bernard Randolph, on Monday, April 2. It’s about time someone told it like it really is, Mr. Randolph, and it’s good that it’s coming from someone who lives downtown and well knows the situation.”
— Halfway


“My question to the general public: We need to address, if — we need to know if this is a country at war, or a military fighting other countries’ war? If we are at war, where are the war efforts?”
— Jefferson, Md.

“We have a Do Not Call list, which does not apply to political calls. We are elderly, and voted early, yet we — voted early, with absentee ballots. We got as many as six calls per hour. I think this is very cruel, and something needs to be done about it.”
— Hagerstown


“Regarding the article, ‘Become a Civil War smarty’ in Sunday, March 18’s paper, folks would have a hard time finding the Antietam battlefield off Md. Route 64, as it’s on Route 65. That wasn’t too smarty. And I don’t see anything wrong with this that you can’t print it. I was formerly a Sharpsburgite.”
— Appletown


“We Williamsport residents need a grocery store, so we don’t have to use expensive gas to go into Halfway. Notice, we did not say ‘supermarket,’ just a store with fresh produce, dairy, meats, etc.”
— Williamsport


“I’m calling about the day before the primary, I received 13 political robocalls to my home — 13 calls to my home. Is there any way to get off this? I really felt 13 calls was an invasion of my privacy.”
 — Hagerstown
