Mail Call - March 28

March 28, 2013

“The Obama administration is going ahead with plans to give 200 Abrams tanks and 20 F-16s to Egypt, which is now under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood. Since these weapons are no longer in production, this deal will degrade U.S. defense capabilities, and will jeopardize Israel’s very existence.”
— Hagerstown

“I’m calling about the kids’ playland that grandparents, parents and fathers take their kids to, and these kids that are sick that sneeze, blow their nose, wipe their nose with their hands, and then touch everything, and it makes all the other kids sick. They’re very inconsiderate. You know, leave your kids at home when they’re sick. Don’t take them to a playland and make other children sick. It’s not right. That’s my opinion.”
— Hagerstown

“Hey, city council and mayor, clean up this town. It makes me sick, riding up Franklin Street and down Washington Street, and out the median of the Dual Highway. Fast food trash, plastic bags, drink cups. What kind of people do we have living in this town?”
— Hagerstown

“Mr. Mayor and the city council of Hagerstown, and Mr. Poole and Mr. Perini, do you have reserved parking spaces somewhere downtown? Will the BOE employees have reserved parking spaces designated? Will retired employees of the BOE have reserved parking? Will the parents have reserved parking, when they attend BOE meetings? Or will the dollars of all the individuals help refinance the treasury of the city of downtown Hagerstown?”
— Rohrersville

“Unions look out for the needs of their workers, but companies only look out for the greed for themselves. This needs to work both ways, because without the companies, there are no workers, but without the workers being treated fairly, there are no companies.”
— Hagerstown

“Well, the mighty Republicans had their CPAC last week, and I didn’t see anything good come out of it. I mean, the same old rhetoric ... Oh please keep thinking like that, please. There won’t be a Republican president in the White House for another 20 years. Please don’t change.”
— Hagerstown

“I wish the person who stole my dog foot scraper off the front porch would return it. That was given to me as a Christmas present, and it’s been sitting on the porch for 26 years. If he doesn’t return it, whoever it was, I pray he gets what he deserves, for stealing.”
— Boonsboro area
 
“So we should be thankful to Rand Paul for securing a guarantee from our government that they will not kill us with drones and hellfire missiles. Doesn’t the government have scores of other lethal weapons which could be used to kill us? If Paul is truly worried about my safety, why didn’t he make them promise not to use those against me as well? Color me unimpressed.”
— Hagerstown

“It’s nice to see a new pope elected. But when will we see a real American pope? I can’t help thinking it’s about time the Vatican recognized the USA’s status as the predominant Christian nation, loved by God above all others.”
— Hagerstown

“It is heartening to see that a number of Washington County students have received the outstanding Carson Scholar award. This and other academic achievements need to be recognized and applauded, on a par with that accorded sports accomplishments.”
— Hagerstown

“The decision by the superintendent of schools in Washington County is a wise one. He’s correct; the school board has no taxing authority. That’s up to the Washington County Commissioners and the State of Maryland. The former Allegheny Energy building is the most economically feasible and wise choice. Think about it.”
— Washington County
