Mail Call - Nov. 30

November 29, 2012

“I want to thank Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin and Bill O’Reilly for getting President Obama re-elected again. Just keep it up. We’ll win another one in the next four years.”
— Hagerstown

“To the caller from Hagerstown who said President Bush left $6 trillion in debt: What do you think President Obama left for himself to deal with? Over $16 trillion. What here doesn’t add up? Who is he going to blame for this? I guess the finger is pointing back at himself.”
— Hancock

“John McCain says that the U.N. ambassador Ms. Rice is unqualified to be secretary of state. This is the man whose VP running mate said she had foreign affairs experience because she could see Russia from her balcony. I don’t think Mr. McCain is qualified to judge anyone’s foreign affairs experience.”
— Williamsport

“To the Hagerstown person who thinks that President Obama is going forward: Correct, Bush left $6 trillion in debt from two wars in eight years. Obama has accumulated $10 trillion more in the past three years, from his ‘green jobs,’ and for his political payoffs to his cronies. His forwardness is leading the country over a fiscal cliff, and the people who voted for him don’t care, as long as their checks come in every month.”
— Hagerstown

“On TV news, I saw several people complain there were no or next to no donations to the food banks. The directors of many of the food pantries around the U.S. confirmed this. They attributed it to the loss of jobs. I saw President Obama dishing out food at a food kitchen. All he need do is stop the mandates, regulations on small businesses, eliminate Dodd Franks, and let small banks loan so businesses can hire. Everything Obama has done has hurt people’s chances of obtaining work.”
— Hagerstown

“A great big thank you to all the restaurants and other establishments that honored our veterans on Veterans Day. It is nice to be remembered and thanked on this very special day. I am a U.S. Army veteran and a member of AMVETS Post 10 and American Legion Post 211, and we want to express our sincere appreciation. We salute you. God bless America.”
— South Pointe

 “I find it a bit odd, whenever you see the county or the city awarding contracts, why are 90 percent of the contracts going to out-of-city or out-of-county companies? How is that for helping the taxpayers footing the bill here? You’re not keeping the money in the county. If it’s because people cost too much, well, put their names out there. Let everybody know who it is that charges too much ... it’s strange. I guess you have to know somebody to get a contract, but then again, this is Hagerstown. What do you expect?”
— Hagerstown

“To those who are still upset about the national election: Please remember this. It is God who removes those in authority, and raises up others. God makes the changes of times and the seasons. See Daniel, chapter 2, verses 21 and 22. Yes, and we have free will, too, but God is still in control and is sovereign.”
— Hagerstown

“Jason, thanks so much for the help you gave me at Sheetz the other day.”
— South Pointe

“I’m calling with regards to the young people in Hagerstown who seem to think they can ride bicycles anywhere, on any street in any direction, and why are the laws not being enforced by the city of Hagerstown?”
— Hagerstown

“To all the Mitt Romney supporters: I bring you bad news/good news. Bad news, we’ve lost the election. Good news: Not to worry. Next month on the 21st, according to the Mayans, the world ends.”
— Hagerstown

“Would you Republicans please call your congressmen and tell them the election’s over, President Obama won, not Mitt Romney? Now they’re talking about trying to repeal Obamacare again. It’s the law of the land. The Supreme Court ruled it the law of the land. Let it go. Please let it go. This is the 21st century. Please, I’m begging you, as an independent, let this stuff go, or you’re not going to win 2016. I won’t vote for you.”
— Hagerstown

“My husband and I and a couple of other people are interested in doing volunteer work, if some place is giving a Christmas dinner. If anybody knows of anyone, if they could put a phone number in Mail Call, and we could call and volunteer our service for Christmas Day.”
 — Hagerstown

“I’d just like to say that out of all fairness, you know, we let the JFK runners run up and down the road, but not only did they disrespect us, but they disrespected our property by throwing all their trash all over our lawns. We’d just like to say, you know, they could at least clean up their mess.”
— Downsville

“I do not agree that stores should be open on Thanksgiving. People who work at those stores need to spend time with their families. And let’s remember the reason for the season. It’s not the hustle and bustle. Remember the reason for the season.”
— Hagerstown

“You know, you don’t have be an Einstein to figure out no one’s coming downtown like they used to. I mean, anybody can see — I left here yesterday evening, I live on East Washington Street, I left here and I went to (two places) for a can of pumpkin. Neither store had it. The whole downtown, I couldn’t even get a can of pumpkin. Back when we used to have — we had a grocery store downtown, we had a dollar store, we had McCrory’s, we had a drugstore. It just doesn’t make any sense. They took all that away, and now they’re asking why no one comes downtown. Well, that’s why. You took everything away.”
— Hagerstown

“I realize I don’t know the whole story of some of these cases, with employers terminating people’s employment, but I don’t feel it’s right at all for employers out there to terminate people’s employment. They need to realize that people do get sick from time to time, and people do get disabled, you know, also, in life. But that just goes to show you, though, no one’s job is actually secure in this country because employers just don’t care. They feel they can always replace you with someone else. Yeah, they don’t have any loyalty to their associates.”
— Greencastle, Pa.

“Anyone who thinks the country isn’t better off than it was four years ago, count your fliers in your paper. A couple of years ago, we were lucky if we got one. Now, it’s more like 21.”
— Washington County

“Can we have a moment of silence, please, for the Republican Party? They’ve died. They just don’t know it, and they’re too ignorant to lay down.”
— Hagerstown
