“President Obama says Congress has to pay ‘its bills.’ Good at passing the blame, Congress didn’t make the bills, he and his Democrat Senate did. They refuse to make a budget, but never mention the way money has been wasted by them. Congress isn’t there to answer his every whim. Obama has had everything his way so far. Incidentally, I had $60 extra in taxes out of my pay, and I do not make a lot of money. Wake up, America.”
“Why is it that as soon as a tragedy happens that all of our so-called legislators want to be the first ones to jump on the bandwagon and write a new gun law bill? All they have to do is enforce the ones we have. Pelosi looked like a puppet on a string when she was blabbing about tougher laws in the news. It’s all to put a feather in their caps.”
“Reference the Jan. 15 Mail Call, the caller from Sharpsburg, with ‘Get the story straight,’ at the bottom of the comment, with regard to firearms confiscation, one needs to look no further than the quote from Sen. Feinstein from California, stating that if she had 51 votes in the Senate, she would pass legislation that would state, Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all in. I think Mr. Fellow Sharpsburg Caller should become a little more informed.”
“Now the official year is over with, with the House and the Congress, would someone please call in Mail Call and let me know if they have extended the unemployment, for, I think it’s 24 or 26 more weeks? My husband got laid off and we have no insurance, and it’s really got the whole family upset, so I’m just concerned to see whether they passed that or not. Hopefully somebody’ll be able to call in Mail Call to let me know if they did extend the unemployment.”
“You might want to print it, don’t forget, everybody that’s receiving a paper check, whether you’re VA, military, Social Security, railroad retirement, or Merchant Marine, you’ll have to start getting your paycheck by a MasterCard, debit card or electronic transfer, the 1st of March of this year. That’s 42 million checks less the post office will deliver this year. Now what will that do to their impact on mail count?”
“I see where Hancock is donating some of their money from the speed cameras to Children’s Village. What’s Hagerstown doing with theirs? You don’t hear or know anything of that. So just a question.”
“It’s sad that all these sports players are taking drugs, to do, to help them out to do better. This is like only the second time in 40 years nobody’s elected to the Hall of Fame in baseball. Now we got Lance Armstrong, for riding bikes. Next they’ll be doing tennis. ... Nobody should have to play, take drugs to ride bikes or play baseball or play tennis.”
