Mail Call - April 12

April 11, 2012

“This is for the caller who got 24 robocalls in the space of three days. I’m right there with you. I get them like that all the time, and I’m afraid there’s only one way that’s guaranteed for it to stop, and that’s to turn your phone off.”
— Hagerstown

“Well, well, well, I see the Obama zombies are starting to awaken. I read the article in the April 4 issue of Mail Call, and I couldn’t believe what I read in the article from a person from Hagerstown on Obamacare. ... It won’t save you hundreds of dollars on prescriptions, and if you are a senior citizen and think you will be getting this great health care, you had better go back to sleep. ... I think since this is the most important election of our lifetime, the American people should educate theimselves on the presidential candidates and then decide who would be best for our country.”
— Shippensburg, Pa.

“I was just wondering if it’s legal or if there’s ... laws against powering a small trailer park with your own commercial generator, to not have to deal with the electric company, if it would work out feasibly.”
— Blue Ridge Summit, Pa.

“Today is Thursday, April 5. Why is the yellow school light flashing on Northern Avenue, when there is no school?”
— Hagerstown

“I’m calling in response to the article about the rabid cat on Northern Avenue. Yes, it is a problem, but it is also a problem that can be solved by having a community feral cat colony that is inoculated against rabies, spayed and neutered, and sheltered and fed, and that way there will be no new cats moving in, and the cats currently there will be protected against disease, as well as the people.”
— Hagerstown

“The answer to stopping robocalls is a three-step process. First, change your party affiliation to independent. Second, yank phone from wall. Third, become an intense prepper for the end of the world.”
— Hagerstown

“This is in reference to the rabid cat that was found on Northern Avenue. They need to really do an article on cats. They’re supposed to have tags, they’re supposed to have collars. People are supposed to walk their cats on leashes. They’re supposed to keep them out of other people’s yards. They’re also responsible for ... There, also people feeding feral cats are responsible for any damage the cats do.”
— Hagerstown

“Kudos to Mr. Lane for his excellent reporting in the April 6 edition, on the Opinion page. My regrets, Mr. Lane, that you and Mr. Aleshire were not elected as county commissioners. County residents, please call current commissioners and let them know we cannot afford to continue subsidization of new development and businesses. So many ... are already coasting on our tax dollars, such as the airport, the ball stadium, as well as the proposed ... senior center, and the Barbara Ingram school.”
— Washington County

“There’s one thing I learned about living in Washington County. Doesn’t matter what Roscoe Bartlett runs for; dog catcher, funeral parlor director, chief of police — people are going to vote for him, no matter what. He hasn’t helped this county since the late ’90s. I voted for him six times myself, and I’m a Democrat, but he’s not helping this county. ... He’s doing whatever Eric Cantor tells him to do. Come on, people, wake up a little bit. Quit voting him just because there is an ‘R’ there.”

“Well, I see Gov. O’Malley and his boys down in Annapolis can’t seem to be able to get the money out of your billfold for a gas tax, so now they’re going to try to get it through an income tax. Folks, you better ... come to the realization it’s going to be like this for the next two years. He’s going to come after you for every cent he can get. Just another reason why he has mismanaged the state from the get-go.”
— Hagerstown

“Is the picture on the front page of the Suns blurry because you didn’t want everybody to see all those empty seats? And my next would be ‘Joe Lane for county commissioner.’”
— Hagerstown

“This is to the guy down in Boonsboro, on this gas price at $1.89 whenever President Obama went in office. He’s wrong. I’d like for him to get Time magazine, last week, and read in there about the oil. He’ll find out where this ... is coming from. Furthermore, when I was young, gasoline was only 13 or 19 cents a gallon.”
— Hagerstown

“I have a question for all my fellow Christian Mail Callers. How can a Christian vote Democrat, when you know the party stands for abortion rights? Can someone explain this to me?”
— Washington County
