Mail Call - June 13

June 12, 2013

“This is to the lady from Sharpsburg. Mr. Shirley was wrong for beating the guy. It doesn’t matter what he did. He’s supposed to set an example. He needs to keep his anger to himself and not just take his anger out on other people.”
— Hagerstown

“I’d just like to hear how you President Obama supporters can support this president, when he’s wiretapping 121 million Verizon customers. He complained about President Bush, saying taking away our liberties and that he would not do it, but yet he is wiretapping more people, he is doing more things that he said he would not do. And I was just wondering, I know you criticize Bush for it, but I just wondered, I’d like to hear how you can defend President Obama for doing more than what President Bush did, by taking our liberties away.”
— Boonsboro

“Here’s food for thought. Republicans keep crying to push the Keystone Pipeline, because it’ll create jobs, while the infrastructure bill that the president proposed last year that Republicans voted down would create three times as many jobs. How come they’re not pushing that? Oh, that’s right, the president wants it, OK. This Republican ‘My way and no highway’ just (isn’t) working. So I think it’s time to get off your duffs and get some infrastructure work, before another bridge collapses.”
— Hagerstown

“I’m appalled by The Herald-Mail today, June 6, that there was, except for ‘Today In History’ on the back page, there was no mention of D-Day on June 6, 1944. I thought there would be some feature stories, and maybe a photograph of somebody who was still there. I’m appalled by the fact that it was not remembered in the newspaper.”
— Washington County

“We were away on vacation in Myrtle Beach, and came home and find out that we have some sort of a rain tax. What kind of idiot came up with this rain tax idea, and when is it supposed to take effect? And what is it exactly?”
— Clear Spring

“I would just like to thank the person or persons who found a little brown cash purse, two Fridays ago at the (store) in Williamsport. It was gone from Friday to Sunday. We went in Sunday afternoon, someone had found it and turned it in, and it had $60-some in it, and I just thank God that there are still honest people in the world.”
— Williamsport

“You know, I find this very strange. I talk to a lot of people during the week, and President Obama, as we all know, won the last election, but it seems that nobody voted for him. So what’s happening here? How did he get in, if nobody voted for him? I think the ones who voted for him just don’t want to say, because they see the terrible job he’s doing.”
— Sharpsburg

“2008 and 2007, Obama’s running for president. He says, ‘I’ll be the most transparent president we’ve ever had.’ Well, he’s probably the least. Now he’s spying on private citizens?”
— Williamsport

“I totally agree with the caller who said you can kiss the Suns goodbye, but I disagree that that is a good thing. The city will be losing about $7 million worth of tourist money that the Suns generate. That’s with the old, dilapidated stadium that they have now. With a new stadium, the money would increase. Unfortunately, Councilman Aleshire shows a lack of interest in the Suns. No, it is the dilapidated, outdated and uncomfortable and unsanitary stadium that causes that. He is majorly misguided.”
— Sharpsburg

“I wonder if Allan Powell ever reads the articles he writes. If he did, he would do a Lawrence O’Donnell rewrite. In his last article in The Herald-Mail, he lambasted Rand Paul, where he doubted Paul could convince enough voters to award him the prize. Mr. Powell, did you ever stop to think of all the lying, cheating, slandering, voter fraud giveaways that got Obama ... administration has the foggiest idea about the working class people.”
— East Hagerstown

“I just want to say that the only difference between President Obama and President George W. Bush is that under President Obama, we’re laughing all the way to the bank, and under George W. Bush, we were crying all the way to the bank.”
— Hagerstown

“I’d like for readers to be aware of this scam call. I’d like the elderly and widows to be aware of the scam call I’ve been receiving. He says his name is John, and that someone has paid for a Life Alert for me. The calls are becoming more frequent, and he’s becoming more pushy, in trying to make an appointment at my house to install it. My sister in another state has also received a similar call from this John. Caller ID varies from a Baltimore number to another number. I hope some agency will look into this.”
— Clear Springs
