“This is in response to the teacher from Hagerstown who complained about the Greencastle school system having a dedicated copy machine operator. By the way he structures his sentences, I sure hope he’s not an English teacher.”
“I followed a mo-ped out Pennsylvania Avenue today — heavy traffic. I didn’t notice any tags on his mo-ped. I did, however, notice the string of traffic behind him because he was riding in the roadway. This is illegal, and it needs to be stopped. They are a reason for accidents. They need to be off the roads.”
“In the May 13 Herald-Mail, on the front page, it is about the West Virginia candidate Faircloth joke about President Obama and (Nancy) Pelosi. My question is how someone who is supposed to have some intellect can say things that they should know will backfire. The same with Donald Trump’s vulgar language. Think ahead and don’t offend. It’s not humor. It’s offensive.”

“I have a raceway hat ... On the back it says ‘We keep America running.’ Inside, the label says ‘Made in China.’ What’s wrong with this picture?”
“I wonder could somebody ... explain to me why it is so necessary to use so much foul, filthy language any more. I’ve been watching TV, and everything on these TV shows, even the family shows, have nothing but foul language. What’s up, and why do they use it?”

“Hey, all you callers tooting President Obama’s horn, all he’s done is raise our unemployment from 5 or 6 percent up to 9 percent under him; give us a health care bill that’s ridiculous; and take our national debt three or four times higher than it’s ever been. CIA, Navy SEALs, that’s who caught bin Laden. Don’t toot the other guy’s horn.”

“Please tell me it’s not true that the government runs a lottery for 50,000 visas a year that can be used by applicants who otherwise wouldn’t ‘have a snowball’s chance’ of ever getting a visa. That’s a weird way to protect our borders — no, that’s inviting them to circumvent the law. If this is true, I hope our politicians put an end to this. Being a law-abiding citizen is costing us dearly. The criminals are winning. Contact your legislators to stop this madness.”
“Tell these politicians in Washington to quit getting out the fear tactics about Social Security going broke. Tell them to put the money back they took out of there to pay for all their follies. And plus, Eisenhower took money out of there to build the interstate, which I don’t fault him for that. But put the money back and stop scaring people. They told me it was going to go broke 40 years ago.”
“Here we go again with global warming. Of course there’s global warming. There’s been global warming since before written history. Just ask any scientist who is not politically motivated. You want to find out about global warming and the proof that shows there’s nothing we as human beings can really do much about it, go to Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. Read some of those journals ... these people are real scientists. They are not politically motivated, and you will get the truth.”
“Voting is not a waste of time. Politicians can ignore the people they represent because the majority of them do not vote. If more people voted, the more they will be listened to. To get re-elected, all they need to do is get enough votes. Make that tougher for them.”
