Mail Call - Oct. 4

October 03, 2012

“To the Falling Waters caller who was disappointed that there was no kettle corn at Boonesborough Days: We are sorry that the kettle corn man wasn’t able to be there this year. Many people were disappointed and asked about him. We trust that he will be back next year.”
— Sharpsburg

“I read the comments from the people opposed to the dog park. Little Leaguers being distracted because of dogs nearby? You’ve got to be kidding me. This town could buy a herd of unicorns that walked around town burping rainbows and pooping gold coins, and I guarantee you somebody would show up at a public meeting to complain about it. Get a life, people.”
— Hagerstown

“Has anyone noticed the amount of Mitt Romney yard signs for president, in the county? I drive around through the county, through Sharpsburg, Boonsboro, Smithsburg, Clear Spring, and I see Romney signs everywhere. I have only seen one Obama sign. This must mean that there are more people going to support Mitt Romney than President Obama.”
— Hagerstown

“Go to your library, or buy and get the book, ‘No Higher Power.’ If you think President Obama is a Christian, your eyes will be opened.”
— Williamsport

“Well, the financial wizards in the city of Hagerstown have not told the residents of Hagerstown and Washington County one thing: How much over a 30-year period will it cost in property tax revenue to the city, to build it on the proposed site? Think about it. It’s the stupidest idea.”
— Hagerstown

“Under the Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan budget plan, what can you afford to give up? How are the people in nursing homes going to get by if there is not enough money? Your vote does have consequences. We don’t need draconian laws now.”
 — Keymar, Md.

“If over the months that this stadium issue has been pushed forward, any of us actual citizens of Hagerstown had been allowed to speak, Mr. Breichner, we would have been far more voices than showed up Tuesday night for the council meeting to speak against the project. As it is, the petitions signed by over 1,100 people had to represent us — that, and our votes in November. And we will remember how rudely we were treated, both by you on the council and those from the alliance, and the stadium ambassadors.”
— Hagerstown

“Everyone, you must see the movie, ‘The Hunger Games,’ before you vote Nov. 6. This movie depicts a world completely controlled by wealthy uber-conservatives who have at last perfected a program for dealing with the 47 percent of undesirables in their society. This movie is no longer playing at theaters, but you can rent it on DVD.”
— Hagerstown

“Who in the world cares what Mitt Romney’s effective income tax rate is? Did you know that the ‘Bureau of the Public Debt’ is a charity? Did he give any money to that?”
— Hagerstown

“I’m sure everyone knows that a parrot just repeats from memory things that it hears. Listening to people talk, and reading Mail Call, there are sure a lot of parrots out there. Too many people just repeat what they hear on the left-wing ABC, NBC, MSNBC, and take it as gospel. ...  Myself, as a concerned voter, I watch a valid diet of Fox News and the left-wing media, and then do my research on each candidate. Look at both sides.”
— Hagerstown

“Now that the Obama administration has been backed into a corner about the attack that killed our four people overseas ... they are now admitting that it was a well-planned terrorist attack. They had no choice. First they defended the people who did it, then they had no choice but to admit that the terrorists did it. So once again they’ve lied.”
— Sharpsburg

“In regard to the article in the paper by Leonard Pitts, ‘Poverty should shame us all,’ once again, he causes much laughter. He is an unreal columnist, so far left-wing that you can’t see him. He criticizes one of the presidential candidates for saying that some of those, or the people who are below the poverty level, are, in essence, bad people. Well, many of them simply will not work, and aren’t trying to better themselves. That’s the problem.”
— Boonsboro

“In his presentation to the U.N., the Israeli prime minister revealed to the general public for the first time the root cause of the Mideast conflicts. Unfortunately, the press left that part of his speech out of their coverage, and the Obama administration wasn’t paying attention.”
— Hagerstown

“Winchester, do I have a deal for you: Hagerstown will throw in the mayor, the city council, the county commissioners, and ... at no cost to you, plus the Suns.”
— Hagerstown

“I just want to say ‘Thank you, Mr. President.’ We just found out that one of my wife’s prescriptions is being denied. Since there is no generic substitute and we cannot afford to pay the full price, she is out of luck. We’re just wondering what’s going to be denied next.”
— Smithsburg

“On the subject of the stadium, why not take that money and build something for the homeless, where they’ll have a place to live? Build warehouses, store food, so they’ll have something to eat.”
— Hagerstown

“I went to get a library card, and guess what? I needed an ID to get one. President Obama’s against voters’ ID because that would be taking away votes who are voting illegally, and died, or voting in two different states.”
— Williamsport

“I don’t think that a stadium has what it takes to revitalize downtown Hagerstown. What it would do is devalue the existing properties in the vicinity of Baltimore Street and Summit Avenue. After all, who wants a noisy ball park for a neighbor?”
— Hagerstown

“This is for all the people who say that we should go see the film, ‘2016, Obama’s America.’ Well, you should go see ‘The Yellow Submarine.’ It has good Beatles music in it, even though it’s a cartoon.”
— Hagerstown
