Mail Call - Oct. 10

October 09, 2012

“Just having my breakfast, having watched the presidential debate last night, I’m having eggs Obama-style: Romney, over easy, easily.”
— Hagerstown

“Well, it’s the morning after the presidential debates, and I see the liberal media is really quiet since Mitt Romney won the debates. I’m glad something will shut them up and keep them from spreading all their lies about Romney. They are definitely President Obama people, and they’ll do anything they can to make Romney look bad.”
— Sharpsburg

“Today’s paper, this is Thursday, I’m sorry, but you can clearly see that whoever wrote the thing about the debate was definitely a President Obama fan. Mitt Romney made it, and he did it great, and the person who wrote that article definitely is an Obama fan. Sorry, but I did not like it.”
— Smithsburg

“After last night’s presidential debate, I find it very hard for President Obama to defend failure. I noticed about the only one after the debate was our beloved Gov. O’Malley, who can relate to failure, because he’s made the state of Maryland quite a mess with his governing. So these two guys are probably two of the most incompetent politicians in my lifetime.”
— Hagerstown

“I’d like to say thank you to Jim Rosko from Boonsboro. His letter to the editor says it all, about President Obama. And anybody who watched the debate Wednesday night should understand what’s going on. Mitt Romney said he was not going to tax the middle class. He’s going to get the American people jobs, and that’s one of the biggest things to bring up our economy.”
— Hancock

“To the caller from Hagerstown who can’t understand why anyone would vote for Mitt Romney: It’s because of people like you who distort the facts about what Romney/Ryan stand for. First of all, you state falsely that Romney is for lower taxes for the wealthy and increasing it on the middle class. You cite such examples as eliminating the mortgage interest deduction. Evidently you only listen to the news when President Obama is speaking, because you know little or nothing about Romney. He has clearly stated that he only wants to eliminate the interest deduction on the top wage earners. You also state falsely that they plan to eliminate Medicare for those under 55. Untrue. They are offering the people under 55 a choice; either to stay on Medicare or take a buyout and secure your own supplemental plan. The difference between Romney and Obama is that Obama will mandate what you should do, while Romney gives you a choice. As for me, I would rather have a choice, and Romney gets my vote.”
— Waynesboro, Pa.

“I’m calling about the debate last night. I thought Gov. Romney was very, very rude, in interrupting and not letting the commentator even ask the questions he wanted to ask. I don’t think President Obama was aggressive enough toward him, and didn’t bring up about the 47 percent of us people that don’t — he doesn’t care about at all. Gov. Romney has good ideas, but he doesn’t say how he’s going to do the things that he’s supposed to be going to do. I want to know what Romney’s going to do about all these things he says.”
— Falling Waters, W.Va.

“I keep reading in Mail Call about people wanting a dog park. Well, we actually have one. It’s called City Park. I cannot even go over there and walk anymore on the inside of the park without people with their dogs. Sometimes they’ll pull the leash to them, other times they let the leash out long and I have to walk way out around the trees, just to avoid these dogs barking at me. I think it’s a shame. I know you have in the paper ‘What’s wrong with this picture?’ ... Please, please, bring the inside of the park back to the people and children.”
— Hagerstown

“What is it with the atheists out there? I just heard on the gospel program this morning where some of the atheists were making their presence known again, at other places. But my opinion, concerning the issue with the Greencastle-Antrim school board, I feel they should still stand their ground. I realize it will cost some money on this legal action that they were going to take, but if they let this go, then these atheists ... will think that they got their way.”
— Greencastle, Pa.

“This is regarding the land deal for the new school site. I hope everybody keeps Tim Rowland’s articles, so they can remember who not to vote for and for whom to vote, in two years, for county commissioners.”
— Washington County

“I was downtown on Sept. 29 for the auto show, and I think our mayor has stated a while back, we need foot traffic downtown. My opinion is we need sidewalks repaired downtown before you can have foot traffic. The sidewalks downtown are terrible. If they’re going to build a new stadium, you’re going to have to walk in the street to get to the stadium. Maybe the donor that donated ... $1 million to repair the sidewalks downtown.”
— Halfway

“Just to make the community aware, there are scammers who identify themselves as ‘online Microsoft technicians working for Windows operating systems’ calling people, telling them that their computers are infected and they are sending out viruses and mallware to others. This is not true. Hang up, or let them know you are aware they are scammers and they will hang up.”
— Smithsburg

“We are all looking forward to the day when the U.S. is no longer dependent on foreign oil, as promised by the politicians. I heard today on a well-known business news station that by the end of this year the U.S. will be the largest exporter of fuel oil and diesel fuel of any country. It’s politics as usual.”
— Waynesboro, Pa.

“I went to try out one of the restaurants in downtown, the Friday of the car show. The sandwich I had at the restaurant was savory, downtown Hagerstown was not.”
— Waynesboro, Pa.

 “Remember, the government cannot give you anything that they have not first taken from someone else.”
— Lappans

“Headline is ‘Meningitis has killed 4 in 5 states.’ How is that possible? I could see ‘killed 5 in 4 states’ but to kill four in five states, one of those four killed had to be standing on a state line so that his place of death was in two states.”
— Falling Waters, W.Va.
