Mail Call - Sept. 6

September 05, 2012

“I live in the county, but I do have my rights to express my opinion regarding the stadium in Hagerstown. The best way to revitalize downtown is to remove the present mayor and council and get a new council, a new mayor.”
— Maugansville

“Article about our current President Obama juggling between being presidential and campaigning. Wow, he’s gonna try to be presidential, rather than being the campaign in chief, campaigner in chief that he’s been for the last 3 1/2 years. That would really be unusual.”
— Washington County

“I’m responding to the caller from Brightwood Acres, regarding the photo ID. Caller, do you need a photo ID to vote in the State of Maryland? I leave the answer up to you.”
— Hagerstown

“Well, Hagerstown didn’t disappoint me. Again they fight progress for the new stadium. No wonder companies with good-paying jobs don’t want to come here. As far as being historic, I’m 65 years old; I’m just old, I’m not historic. Old doesn’t mean you’re historic. And anybody talking about renovating the old stadium are people who obviously haven’t been there.”
— Hagerstown

“I would like to thank the caller from Brightwood Acres East for saying that if you’re not smart enough or motivated enough to get a ID, you shouldn’t be smart or motivated enough to vote. I guess people that are handicapped aren’t motivated enough to get out and get an ID, when it’s very burdensome for them, but yet they gotta struggle to vote, but that’s OK with this caller. Or the military guy in Pennsylvania whose ID is turned down because it don’t have an expiration date on it. I guess he’s not smart enough. These ID laws are just strictly to keep out the Democrat vote. These people, that’s the trouble with the Republican party, they think everybody’s healthy just like they are, white, not poor, and they’re not.”
— Hagerstown

“I had crossed South Potomac Street and was about to step on the sidewalk outside the visitors center, when a young woman roared past me in her car and told me to get on the sidewalk. Firstly, the pedestrian always has the right-of-way. Secondly, if she would get out of her car, I would gladly show her the sidewalk. Thirdly, she is a rude ... and shouldn’t have a license to drive a tricycle.”
— Hagerstown

“My question for Mail Call is where is the Hagerstown Republican headquarters, or where will it be? I’m a subscriber of The Herald-Mail.”
— Hagerstown

“How long are we going to let oil companies keep gouging us? They say how much that big oil spill in the Gulf cost them. It didn’t cost them a darn penny, because gas went up to over $4 or more a gallon. A week ago in California, a rig had an explosion. Before the fire was even out, the gas in California went up 20 cents. So you tell me who’s paying for it. Republicans want to drill more, 50 or more ... they say we will not have to buy foreign oil in 20 years. I won’t live that long, and this earth will not last that long.”
— Hagerstown

“I will not vote for anyone that wants the multiplex thing, the stadium moved downtown. I want the stadium where it’s at, fix it up.”
— Hagerstown

“I see on the news, a petition against the new stadium. As a resident of Hagerstown, I’d like to know where I can sign up, because I also am opposed to a new stadium. The old stadium is fine.”
— Hagerstown
