Mail Call - Aug. 2

August 01, 2012

“I want to thank the person from Hagerstown who took issue with my George Michael and David Limbaugh comment. I must confess that I read both columns. Paul Staley answered your concerns about George Michael. Concerning Neil Parrott’s petitions, we have a representative government. Petitions should be rare.”
— Halfway

“Hey caller, I didn’t call Obama evil or a liar. I just said he was in over his head. And he blames everyone else for his own lack of leadership. I think it’s time he starts taking responsibility for his own actions.”
— Hancock

“I got droned, as far as I’m concerned, I was droned tonight. I live close to the Hagerstown airport. The Piper Cubs fly out here on Sunday. They’re loud, they make a lot of noise, when the jets fly in and out they make a lot of noise. When something flies over that makes no noise, that’s a drone. This thing was way up high, but it flew over without making any noise whatsoever, right over my house.”
— Hagerstown

“Hagerstown caller, you can dish it out, but you sure can’t take it. Reading ranting left-wing callers, especially personal attacks, causes laughter, not sickness, in me. Since you can’t stand disagreement, why not quit reading Mail Call, and spare your delicate sensibilities? And you claim nothing’s changed since Obama’s election. I wish. Are you too sick to notice high unemployment and gas prices, skyrocketing inflation, too sick to go grocery shopping as well? Trillion-dollar deficits and five trillion and counting, added to the debt?”
— Frederick, Md.

“You know, I’m counting the days to see how long it takes the Republicans and these right-wing talk-show hosts and tea parties to blame Obama for the drought that we’re having over the country, and the food prices gonna go up. So I’ll see how long it takes them to blame him for that.”
— Hagerstown

“To the person from Clear Spring, concerning gun control laws: Gun control laws will not accomplish nothing. If a person wants a gun, there will be ways or loopholes they can get one. It’s not the guns, it’s the nitwits that own them.”
— Hagerstown

“In reference to the Good Humor closing, thank you for being in the community for 21 years, and I’m sorry for all the employees, and all the hoopla that the politicians are putting in the paper. But you didn’t tell the right thing on one thing. The plant is the fourth biggest water, sewer and electrical purchaser from the city of Hagerstown. How does that affect the city of Hagerstown and their income level for this 2012?”
— Leitersburg

“Wake up, people. Look around you. Aren’t you glad you live in a free country? Whether you’re Republican or Democrat, you can vote, go anywhere you want. Stop Republicans and Democrats fighting, and work together to get this country in order. I’m a Democrat, and I would like to go back with President Bush as president any time. Obama is taking our country down the drain. I thought that when he was elected, things would be better. They are not. He thinks only of what he wants, and not what’s good for the people.”
— Big Spring

“To the caller from Martinsburg who talked about George Michael, going back to the good old days of Bush: Man, I’d be glad to go back to the days of Bush, after what I’ve seen for the last 3 1/2 years out of Obama. Massive debt, stimuluses that don’t work, unemployment over 8 percent for the last 35 months. This old boy has just bought in to Obama’s rhetoric, and he just simply fell for Obama.”
— Hagerstown

“Why are we paying the teachers more money to do the job they are supposed to be doing? Can this county find any more ways to waste the taxpayers’ money?”
— Hagerstown
