Mail Call - June 4

June 03, 2012

“This call is from the caller who said that Romney has no military experience or foreign policy. It seems I upset a lot of conservatives, which is very great. That was my intent. They’re the party that keeps on saying that military experience is needed. They always want a military man to be their nominee, but the minute they get a draft dodger who went to France for three years during Vietnam, they’re happy. President Obama was a child during Vietnam, so don’t even compare the two.”
— Hagerstown

“I’m calling about my daughter, which you probably won’t put it in the paper anyhow. She had served time in jail in Martinsburg, and she’s trying — she’s out now, doing really good, and she’s trying to find a job, and nobody will hire her, due to the fact that she is — was in jail. And I would like to know if anybody could help her. I would just like to know if you put this in the paper and leave people know that there is people that was in jail that would like to have a job.”
— Falling Waters, W.Va.

“I can’t hear you. Where’s them people that was screaming five weeks ago, President Obama’s the cause of their miserable life, the gas is going up? You realize gas is 25 percent cheaper than it was this time last year? ... You want to blame him for putting it up, but you don’t want to give him any credit for putting it down? So all you people out there that hate President Obama, every time he does something good and your veins pop out and your eyes bug out and you scream, how about saying ‘thank you?’”
— Hagerstown

“It seems like everybody’s complaining about the gasoline prices. Well, but I never hear anybody complain about milk being $4.30 a gallon.”
— Hagerstown

“I’m calling in reference to the senior center at Hagerstown Community College, and the new stadium for the Hagerstown Suns. I know a perfect way to solve whether to build the stadium or build the senior citizens center at those locations. Put it on the ballot and let the citizens of Washington County vote for it. They’re the ones that’s gonna use it. They should be able to decide where these things should be.”
— Falling Waters, W.Va.

“I would just like to say a word of congratulations to the graduates of the Washington Street and Washington County job development center program, for the class of 2012. I am a graduate of the job development center, and again, I would like to say congratulations to the class of 2012. Congratulations, all of you, and good luck in the future.”
— Hagerstown

“They say the unemployment rate is 8.4 percent, but it’s really closer to 15 percent because a lot of people just gave up looking for jobs because there really isn’t anything out there. Then again, there’s a lot of people never looked for anything and depended on the government for everything they wanted. Is there someone out there that can really fix it? Well, I guess we’ll find out in November.”
— Williamsport

“The Bible says ‘Judge not.’ This is about the person that said they rode past the house in the West End, and the grass looked so bad that it made the other houses look bad. Why don’t you knock on the door and ask? Sometimes people are elderly and they can’t mow their own grass. Sometimes they might not have the money, and instead of being judgmental, why don’t you try to help? ... Knock on the door and see if they would love to have someone that could help them.”
— Hagerstown

“I’m tired of Republican party calling rich people job creators. They’re not job creators. Many rich people just get their money from dividends, or they get their money through inheritance, and don’t create any jobs. The people of America are the job creators. We are the consumers. And if it wasn’t for the Bush administration allowing jobs to go to China like crazy during the 2000s — because I know, I buy material, and the companies I bought from were in America, now they’re all in China.”
— Hagerstown

“This is about the article in the paper, ‘Homeowners would bear brunt of septic costs.’ I’m a 66-year-old woman who — what are they gonna do? I can’t afford to pay for a new septic system. Does it mean that the county or state’s gonna take my house — because I can’t pay for it? Even if I get a grant for $10,900, where am I gonna come up with $8,840? I don’t even have $100 in the bank. I want to know what’s gonna happen. And I’m sure there’s a lot of elderly people like me. What are we gonna do, are we gonna lose our homes?”
— Washington County

“I’m calling (in) reference (to) the Randall Williams editorial letter, I don’t know what day it was, about Bill Robinson. He was indeed an outstanding singer, of quality we had few of in Hagerstown. I just wanted to comment along those lines, the musical community.”
— Hagerstown

“I was just wanting to complain about a lack of mailboxes in the Hagerstown area. I just recently moved to a new neighborhood — thank God, it’s so much better than where I was living — and I tried to find a mailbox. I walked within a radius of eight to nine blocks and could not find one mailbox. I just wanted to know exactly where all the mailboxes have gone. There are still people that use the mailboxes.”
— Hagerstown

“This is about Sunday morning’s paper, front page, ‘Watershed plan causes “sticker shock’”. Well, you know, the American people, years ago, I think Richard Nixon signed this EPA thing into law, but it got out of, carried out of hand. The EPA went too far because of these environmental groups. Until people in the U.S. gets rid of this EPA and  environmental groups around this country, the taxpayers, people that owns houses, we’re gonna pay for it. We’re paying for it now.”
— Hagerstown

“I’m calling about the people complaining about the recycle bins. ... If you don’t want them, call and have them taken out. I, for one, am keeping mine because I do recycle.”
— Maugansville
