Mail Call - April 22

April 22, 2013

“I’m glad to see Sheriff Mullendore has finally admitted that the purpose of speed cameras in school zones is to generate money, and not for the safety of our children.”
— Williamsport


“I, for one, am tickled to death to see that Potomac Edison is being investigated. I’ve been complaining about my electric bill for a long, long time. Potomac Edison’s response to me was they do not have enough meter readers to come and read my meter. When you pay a $600 electric bill every month, you deserve to have your meter read.”
— Boonsboro


“First the flush tax triples, now the gas tax is more, and now they’re talking about taxing us for water that runs off our driveways and our roofs. I imagine all of you out there who voted Democratic, you really love yourselves and you love your Democratic Party. Maybe they ought to start taxing us for breathing, pretty soon. So just keep on voting and putting Democrats in this state, and you’ll see how far ... and how many more taxes we’ll have to pay. So I hope you’re proud. Keep on voting Democrats, and you’ll keep on getting taxed. Virginia loves us.”
— Boonsboro


“I was wondering if anybody has the same problem as I do, and that is with door-to-door salesmen and religious fanatics. I have a ‘No Soliciting’ sign beside my front door. I definitely don’t want to put up a ‘No Trespassing’ sign; that’s very detracting to the appearance of my property. My problem is this: People still come to my door, beat on the door, ring the doorbell, and when I go out and tell them to get off my property, they say well, we’re ... my problem’s when they start saying the Supreme Court says we can come to your front door.”
— Hagerstown


“To the people who walk their dogs in Funkstown and they let them walk in people’s front yards, and the male dogs lift their legs on people’s bushes: It kills their bushes. You’re not allowed to do that. Let them (go) on a telephone pole or something, but please keep them out of people’s yards.”
— Funkstown


“The people who would like to have a dog park should have fundraisers to raise the money, instead of asking the county for money, or the city for money. We have had fundraisers where we raised a lot of money, and they probably could, too. And I would even support a fundraiser to have a dog park.”
— Hagerstown


“I am an Independent, but was Democrat for many years. Then I realized it was not the Democratic Party of the ’50s. I do believe the Democratic Party is the party for the poor. The problem I find now is that the party has to keep people poor to keep their power. So sad, but this is destroying our country. People should really read what their party stands for.”
— Hagerstown


“David Limbaugh says his world is turned upside down because too many people are choosing to ignore his brand of religion and the government is doing nothing to kick them in line. Perhaps if David and his followers would practice a kinder and more gentle form of religion, more people would move in their direction.”
— Hagerstown


“I have a question for Hagerstown residents. Did anyone see unidentified flying objects on Saturday, April 13? That night, I, and five confirmed others at separate locations, saw triangles over the north side of the city, while looking for the Northern Lights. Electronics were even affected at two other known locations from these things. Were drones around?”
— Hagerstown


“I think that all of us Americans understand that this country is deeply in debt, practically bankrupt. There’s no money to repair our roads, no money to take care of our people, no money for anything. Yet now we’re dumping the 12 million illegal immigrants into our system. I guarantee you, it’s going to happen. They’re going to be left to stay here legally, and like I said before, what about the people who tried for years and years to get into this country legally? They’re just left outside. I don’t think our country can afford to support 12 million more illegal immigrants.”
— Sharpsburg


“One has to wonder what’s in store next year for the people of Maryland, with Gov. O’Malley in his final year, and the legislative body, what they have in store for us. Marylanders, you better wake up to this liberal, left-wing agenda O’Malley has put on us, and the people in Annapolis. Soon it’ll be called not the state of Maryland, but the People’s Republic of Maryland.”
— Hagerstown


“It’s perfectly fine if vacant lots sit in Funks-town, but their owners ought to keep them mowed. No one wants to live next to a jungle.”
— Funkstown


“This is on everybody’s fair share of taxes, and I’m getting tired of these politicians saying everybody needs to pay their fair share. I’d like to know how they’re going to do that, when you got 47 percent of American people on food stamps and drawing welfare. And they even get money back from income tax. The working man, they usually have to pay in. So how are they going to pay ... All I hear out of the federal government is cut Social Security, cut Social Security entitlement. Social Security is not an entitlement. Welfare is entitlement. It’s given to them, OK? We worked to pay money into Social Security.”
— Hagerstown


“When is the remodeling of the senior center on Willard Street to begin? We seniors have waited long enough for a senior center. So what’s the hold-up? Git-er-done before we all croak.”
— Hagerstown
