On August 5th, the Mercury published a list of people with tax delinquencies. The government put a stop to evicting people who do not pay rent. They also postponed federal student loan repayments. However, when the taxman does not get his due, your property is auctioned and your name is published. Why didn’t taxes get postponed? Here’s why. It’s ok not to pay the landlord, but you better pay the taxman.—Eyes open in Pottstown—Joe Biden’s bosses have no problem blaming unvaccinated US citizens for Covid case surges, but they continue to allow illegal immigrants to flood across our border with all sorts of diseases. Just absurd.—Matt Dorsey—Dr. Adam Hersperger was serving on the Boyertown Schools Covid Task Force, but he resigned because one decision didn't go his way. That is typical for liberals, they can never compromise, they need to get their way or they take their "marbles" and go home. We all know that only N95 masks work, and wearing cloth masks is a joke. Doctor, you know it too or should.—S. Light—I’m tempted to ask NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo about the recent investigation that found him guilty of multiple counts of sexual harassment but I’m afraid it will be a touchy subject and may rub him the wrong way.—The Snarky Conservative—Should Owen J. Roberts school board members tender their resignations? At a time when subject proficiency regressed, teacher compensation was enhanced. As egregious as this decision was, that to adopt an equity policy was despicable. Circuit Judge James C. Ho opined, “Citizens may fairly wonder how officials can condemn race-neutral policies as racist and defend explicitly race conscience programs as inclusive.” Subjecting kids to ideological cancer must have consequences.—M. Furlong—This madness needs to stop. If we have to have "vaccine passports" to do things, what's to stop the government from requiring "country passports" as permission to travel? Or requiring proof of vaccination before children can go to school? Next, we'll need some kind of government card to drive our cars. Where will all this end?—Emily L—We expend too much time, money and energy on the Covid disease. Typhus, smallpox, diphtheria, rubella, measles, and polio used to be problems, but nobody worries about them anymore. Covid will go away by itself, just like they did, or not. We should turn our attention to more important things and let nature take its course.—JSwift—A few results from Joe "The Big Guy" Biden! Housing prices are up, overdose drug deaths are up, crime rates are up, school supply shortage, Covid confusion and political division are worse than ever. So much for bringing the country together.—IND FIG—I am so tired of people calling this past election the big lie! The factual numbers don’t lie and prove that this past election, and who knows maybe even other elections, there was let’s say unanswered numbers counted! why is everyone so afraid of finding out. It doesn’t matter what party, I just want to be sure my vote isn’t canceled out by someone who has no right to vote!—Dot—Patriot54, you’re about as useful as a screen door on a submarine.—In a sane and non-partisan world, natural immunity would count for something and we'd have spent the past year talking about obesity's role in making Covid far deadlier than it should have been. But the Democrats' insatiable hunger for power and control drives every strategy they put in place and every calculated decision they make. They're now laying the groundwork for manipulating the 2022 and 2024 elections with their Covid 2.0 sham.—Biggly— In classic misdirection, progressives are accusing conservatives of doing exactly what they do. Sound Off has featured letters saying Republicans don't support the police or the flag because we oppose wasteful spending and political pork. The game is to accuse your opponent of doing what you do. Does anyone really think leftists support the police? And which side burns the flag? If people knew exactly what they stand for, progressives would never win an election.—Chuck Draksler—A few positive observations. Biden turned on Cuomo, you see tigers do eat their young! In the Democrat primaries the AOC and Bernie Sanders candidates lost! Biden polling is at 45 percent, probably actually like 38 % looking at the sampling! Negative observations Rep, Dean and Sen. Casey still no response on the “Biden Border Crisis”! July unvaccinated illegal aliens released into America 230,000+!—President Trump Accomplishments — Day 2: Over 7 million jobs created. More Americans were employed than ever recorded before in our history. Created more than 400,000 new manufacturing jobs. Manufacturing jobs grew at the fastest rate in more than three decades. Economic growth as high as 4.2 percent. New unemployment claims hit a 49-year low. Median household income hit highest level ever recorded. President Trump received three separate nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize.—Patriot45—Alexander Vindman, the star witness for one of the Democrat's impeachment efforts, is now claiming that if President Trump had been removed by impeachment the Covid pandemic would have not happened. This conspiracy theory was aired by MSNBC without being challenged, or maybe Vindman has inside information on the origins of Covid.—Michael Stern—George Orwell sure called it right! Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture repainted, every statue, street, and building renamed, every date altered. And the process continues day by day. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the (Democrat) party is always right.—Missy Miss—I took a course in positive thinking. It was a total waste of time.—Bill Wilson—Will Wood is dead wrong on Critical Race Theory. CRT is in itself racist. Equal opportunity is not about equal outcomes. America is about individual equality, not group equity. CRT denies the idea that hard work and equal protection succeed. It immorally promotes inter-generational guilt. This Marxist theory empowers elites to persecute. CRT ignores the fact that globally, the US is the least racist country. CRT is a disgrace to every American.—Shadow-2—To “Dot” and the other radical Republicans, it is clear by your constant complaints, anger and hate for the great direction the country is taking under the Biden administration, you do not love or even like our great country. Time for you to pack up your bags and leave. No joke, radical Republicans you need to either love America or leave it. When you do leave, we will miss all your comedic Sound Off submissions!—Patriot54—OK, you FOX News followers. Why have Sean Hannity, Steve Doocy, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders changed their view on the vaccine? They are now supporting the vaccine and insisting that everyone get the shots. Will you now turn on them?—Reading (un)Patriot54’s unending progressive propaganda has always made me think that he must work in the news media, or the Democratic Socialist Party — nobody else could be that blindly loyal to their cause. After his ridiculous 8/5 comment about “Radical 'Defund the Police' Republicans,” it has left me no doubt. Like the leaders of your party and the mainstream news media, you have destroyed what little credibility you may have had.—Freedom Fighter—Cuban rafts aren’t welcome in Florida, but all kinds of illegal immigrants are welcomed with open arms along our Mexican border. Racism by the Biden administration for all to see.—Jim Atlas—I get so tired of people using abbreviations. The only reason they write "Congrats" is because they can't spell "Congrajulateuns!"—Jim Fitch—Sound Off is an opinion forum to spur dialogue from residents of the communities The Mercury serves on topics of general interest in those communities and the world beyond.
