Mail Call - Oct. 17

October 16, 2012

“To the voters of the Sixth District: We haven’t had a good representative here since Beverly Byron, so now’s a good time to change and get things straightened out once and for all. Remember, if they’re only there for four years, we don’t like them, you can get rid of them and get somebody else.”
— Hagerstown

“Today Mitt Romney said that 23 million people were out of work. But he’s only promising to create 12 million jobs. I guess the rest of the ... people will just be part of the 47 percent who are moochers, mooching off our government. He also said he would drill for more oil in the U.S., which would stabilize the prices. As a businessman, I thought he would understand how the oil markets work. Obviously, he has no clue how the oil markets work.”
— Sharpsburg

“‘Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured, but not everyone must prove they are a citizen. And now any of those who refuse or are unable to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance, paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens.’ — Ben Stein.”
— Boonsboro

“I was wondering about the atheists who want to take the Lord’s Prayer out of the schools, take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance, and the manger scene from the government buildings, government places. I just wonder, what do they do for money? All the money has ‘In God We Trust.’ Do they touch it? Are they afraid of it, or they — I bet you they use it. They spend all their money they get, and it has ‘In God We Trust.’ I wonder how they handle it.”
— Clear Spring

“Well, there is another fiasco by our city government, this one where they paid $3 million for a large office building downtown that they were going to move other government agencies into, but yet is still empty after four years of talk of demolishing. I say this to this county and city. When is enough going to be enough?”
— Hagerstown
