Mail Call - Oct. 31

October 30, 2012

“To the caller who wanted to know why no one is giving President Obama credit. I give him credit. He’s responsible for 9 million people unemployed, he’s responsible for tripling the deficit, he’s responsible for our ambassador getting killed in Libya and lying about it. He’s responsible for Fast and Furious and covering it up. So there’s not much more we can give him credit for, except destroying the U.S. economy.”
— Hagerstown

“I see that the commissioners are finally thinking of putting the senior center somewhere else but not because it’s what the seniors wanted all this time but because it will cost too much. They are not thinking of what the senior citizens want, all they care about is the cost. Thanks a lot, Washington County Commissioners, you will be a senior citizen one day. Hope you don’t get treated this way.”
— Hagerstown

“I’m glad to see the County Commissioners are finally using their heads and not their mouths about the senior center moving to Hagerstown.”
— Hagerstown

“I’ve been living in Hagerstown my whole life, and I’m 73, and they started charging for hauling garbage. My wife, she got a bill the other day, it was $39 for recycling again, and I don’t understand. We pay all these taxes every year since I started paying them in Hagerstown. So you don’t get anything for your tax money now. Everything you get in Hagerstown, you have to pay taxes on it. And I voted for mostly Democrats in the city.”
— Hagerstown

“I’m having a lot of doubts about our Mayor Bruchey and his problems with financial sensibilities.”
— Hagerstown

“I need to remind the Clear Spring caller who says 47 percent of Americans get government assistance, and ask how much of it is waste, my parents worked for over 50 years each. They get just Social Security. No, they don’t pay income tax, but they pay sales tax, they pay property taxes, and the government assistance they’re getting is the Social Security and Medicare that they paid into. This is again how much little relationship Republicans have with people who are struggling to make ends meet.”
— Hagerstown

“Based on my experience, I agree with other callers that the anti-texting law isn’t being enforced, but did anyone really think it would be? The caller’s right, it’s unenforceable. It’s even more unenforceable than the speed limit, and just drive for a few miles on any of our roads, federal, state or local, and you’ll see how routinely speed limits are violated with impunity. I loathe these unenforceable laws.”
— Frederick, Md.
