Mail Call - April 27

April 27, 2012

“The first debate between Romney and President Obama: If I was Romney, I would ask President Obama can you run on your record? More people on unemployment, more people on food stamps, more people on welfare, higher food prices, higher gas prices, $5 trillion more added to the deficit in just three years? I close my case.”

— Williamsport



“I’m calling about the hunting in Western Maryland and all over the U.S. I hunted in different states. I hunted 50 years in Western Maryland, so what I’m calling about is, this senator we have, Cardin, he ... voted on a bill to eliminate all firearms in government-owned property. In other words, there’d be nowhere to hunt anywhere. He voted to ban them, but then he turned around, it lost, and the bill didn’t go through. So this is to all the hunters and people that like to go hunting, (who) take their family hunting.”

— Hagerstown



“In answer to the caller from Hagerstown posing the question, ‘How can a Christian vote Republican?,’ I will do like Jesus did. He answered a question with a question. How can a Christian vote Democrat, when all they stand for is taxation, welfare and abortion rights, which is strongly unBiblical? As for the poor, handicapped senior citizen and those who need health care, the Republicans have never stood for ending benefits where they are direly needed.”

— Waynesboro, Pa.



“I’m reading Friday, April 20, Herald-Mail Mail Call, and I’m seeing all the people complaining about the stadium downtown. Our city needs a new stadium in order to help revitalize downtown. The ones who don’t want it are the old fogies who don’t like change. Change is a good thing. Get with the times.”

“This is for the person wondering what is going on on Halfway Boulevard where the work’s being done. It is a place for police officers to park to get speeders.”

— Hagerstown



“Hagerstown caller, you leftists love to call us conservatives religious extremists, but now you actually equate criticizing President Obama or disagreeing with his policies to accusing Jesus — who, despite your fantasy, wasn’t a Democrat or a Republican or a politician, who said his kingdom wasn’t of this world — of being the devil or Satan’s agent. I’ve heard jokes about Obama worshippers, but until now that’s all I thought they were, but it sure sounds like you actually believe, regardless of facts and reality, that he’s the infallible messiah, and so in your mind any criticism, disagreement or dissent is heresy, blasphemy, and an insult to your faith. And caller, if your Obama worship wasn’t so laughably pathetic, I’d be offended that you’d equate our Lord and Savior to Obama or any other politician.”

— Frederick, Md.



“Why do people run their mouths for the rail trail, with ‘Open for Business, Welcome, Frederick County’ signs posted at Crampton’s Gap, leaving Washington County? The hustle and bustle is east, and down here, there’s pleasure in watching the grass grow.”

— Rohrersville



“On April 11, in The Herald-Mail, I read a column about Sarah Palin not being a good candidate for president. I agree with them 100 percent. I have an article that says former president Ronald Reagan’s son says the truth about Sarah Palin, what she does is for money, and ... she is not a serious candidate for president, and never has been.”

— Hancock



“I have a question for my fellow Christians also. How can you vote Democrat, when they are for abortion, which is murder, and gay marriages, which is an abomination in the Bible? And besides that, they are taxing us to death. Maybe you need to read your Bible a little closer.”

— Clear Spring



“Can’t anyone in the state government suggest lowering wages and pensions for state workers? All the states are in debt, trying to pay big pensions. It is so unfair, when private companies cannot pay us much for retirement. These fees on everything will not pay the debt. These unions keep wanting more and more for state workers.”

— Williamsport



“I’m calling to tell everyone that I have found two places in Hagerstown where we could put a baseball stadium. We can just use the government’s power of eminent domain to obtain land, either on The Terrace or at Fountainhead. Now, either one of them would be grand locations to have it, and I’m sure the nice, wealthy residents would just love having a baseball field right in their backyard.”

— Beaver Creek
