“To you people in Maryland, the gambling group wants more gambling, so you can have more money for your schools and such: That is the same thing they told us in West Virginia and here in Jefferson County, and guess what? Where is the money for my schools? And I’ll guarantee you I’m paying the same taxes as I’ve paid over the years, every year.”

“The city is building a park on a vacant apartment building lot on the corner of East Avenue and North Locust Street, where there have been a number of accidents recently. To allow your children to go there would be a terrible idea. It’s another example of the narrow-minded decisions that our city officials make in wasting our tax dollars on stupid stuff like that. Also like the downtown stadium.”
“Yes, I just saw in the paper recently where they had a crackdown on underage drinking in bar establishments. And I believe one of the bars is recently new opening and this is their second strike. How many strikes does it take to take their liquor license away?”
“Everyone should drive out to the Elks Lodge to see the sea of pink in memory of those breast cancer nonsurvivors. It is just beautiful and it took a lot of effort.”
“This is reference to the 25th of October in section B in reference to the school dress program about the stripes, hooded shirts, cut-offs, pajama bottoms, flip flops, T-shirts, tank tops and all that at Chambersburg. Step up to the plate School Board, look what’s happening to your school and probably to ours here in Washington County. These kids and teachers need to dress appropriately.”
“I mailed my absentee ballot from Funkstown 10 days ago. It’s still has not been received in Hagerstown. What’s going on here?”
“Often we hear President Obama and others claim that we should return to the tax rates of the Clinton era. I would gladly do that, if we also had gasoline at $1.15 a gallon, heating oil at 70 cents a gallon, and my health insurance was 25 percent of what it is now. Since those things won’t happen under Obama, it would be stupid to do so. Vote Romney/Ryan and we might have a chance.”
— Waynesboro, Pa.
“Mitt Romney says he will make 12 million jobs. As of this moment, he is shipping the jobs of a business he owns ... in Freeport, Ill., to China. What a hypocrite. And he cares about the American people and their jobs. What a joke he is.”
“I don’t think that anybody who walked into the situation that President Obama walked into, that Bush had us in, can do anything to really straighten all of it out in four years. I think the man should be given the chance to finish what he started, and don’t keep running him down and building Mitt Romney up, because Romney’s just going to put us back, Romney’s going to put us right back into the situation where Obama’s trying to get us out of. So please give him another chance.”
— Falling Waters, W.Va.
“This is to the caller from Hagerstown who is comparing what Richard Nixon did with Watergate to the Benghazi tragedy under President Obama. I mean, you Republican partisans are really stretching it, when you think a president that ordered a criminal act, a burglary, to break in somewhere and get data and cover it up for a year is the same as Obama’s team not coming out right away with the real facts on Benghazi.”
