Mail Call - Oct. 24

October 23, 2012

“Mitt Romney says his highest priority is jobs. If so, why did he oppose the bailout of the auto industry? And why is his money invested offshore?”
— Chambersburg, Pa.

“I would just like to say I’m amazed at the reporter who reported the debate last night; didn’t say a thing about Biden’s rudeness and disrespect.”
— Hagerstown

“Had Joe Biden, with his smirking, mocking, and disrespectful attitude and constant interruptions during the vice presidential debate, been in elementary school, he would have been sent out in the hallway for a time-out. If America is smart in November, they will give funnyman Joe and this administration a permanent time-out.”
— Hagerstown

“I just read where the woman said that the women who write in to Mail Call who say they’re a single mom should be ashamed for saying that. What is to be ashamed about? That’s something to be proud of. That’s why some women say that they’re a single mom, because they’re proud of it, especially if their children grew up to be good kids.”
— Hagerstown

“Republicans kill me. It’s all right for last week during the debate for Mitt Romney to interrupt the moderator and the president while they’re speaking. That’s just fine and dandy. He wasn’t being rude, he was being great. Great, he won the debate, wonderful. But when a Democrat does it, when Biden does it, he’s being rude. Why is it when you do it, everything’s fine and dandy, you’re great Americans, but Democrats are animals, liberals, nazis, socialists? The Republicans couldn’t govern an SPCA.”
— Hagerstown

“Hagerstown caller, if you can’t find a cellphone plan that satisfies you, there are many available. You might consider getting one of those cellphones without a plan, where you buy service time and minutes as you need them, and you keep all your minutes as long as you keep your phone. You can get a basic model for about $10, and minutes and time are very inexpensive. I’ve got one, and it suits my needs very well, but I don’t use it much, and don’t need or want any of those special features, and your needs may very well be different, but it’s an option.”
— Frederick, Md.

“I saw the speech by Congressman Ryan today, attacking the president for not being tougher on China. But Bain Capital has invested heavily on a company in China who will be closing their plant the day before election. They make auto parts, but they can make them for 99 cents an hour on their employees in China, so they’ll be shipping those jobs over there, where Romney will still be making money. Now he says he’s not in control of Bain.”
— Sharpsburg

“Mr. Callaham, I would like to tell you, I read your article about recycling, although I gave up recycling because of the county’s greed for more money from the taxpayers who were willing to recycle, and to say nobody’s making money on recycling is just plain goofy. Nobody would work for nothing. Get real.”
— Clear Spring

“I just read in Thursday’s paper there was a lengthy presentation at Chambersburg’s Franklin fire company on the revised gaming laws in Pennsylvania. These laws are to ‘protect’ the public, and Caesar gets his pound of flesh. I think it is ironic that governments in Pennsylvania and Maryland are imposing strict gaming laws, while our federal government under Bill Clinton’s watch reversed the Glass-Steagall act that prohibited banks from gambling by using complicated derivatives, credit default swaps and other Ponzi schemes to rob the public. As a result of the gambling by Wall Street banks and the Federal Reserve bankers, we had the banking system collapse in 2008, and are paying dearly for it today with QE infinity. In this case, are worrying about the pennies and not the trillions. By the way, the Wall Street gambling is still happening with QE money. The Rothchild’s Federal Reserve system exists only to enrich themselves and politicians.”
— Waynesboro, Pa.

“This is in reference to your Sunday paper, the front page, ‘Report card: County low in higher ed.’ This is for Mr. Wilcox, the elected officials, and the chamber and other people trying to push college, for everybody to pay for all these students. Everybody is not college material. They need to put some skin in the game, which means work and pay for it — not the county taxpayers. Whose fault is it? It’s not ours, it’s the parents and the BOE.”
— Leitersburg

“I thought it was a law that mopeds had to have insurance, helmets, tags and insurance, but I see a lot of them still running around town with none of them on. I’d appreciate a comment.”
— Hagerstown
