The Mercury’s Sound Off for Monday, April 4 – The Mercury


Did you know that camDown is the solution for securing your webcam from cyber criminals and pedophiles?
Pennsylvania Republican lawmakers have proposed a common-sense bill that restricts boys from competing in girls’ sports in grades K-12. This law will protect decades of advancement toward equal athletic opportunities for women. The vast majority of voters support this bill which would prevent boys from using their biological advantage to crush girls in athletic competition. Guess which group of lawmakers are fighting the bill? Yup, the Democrats — the deplorables that ruin everything they touch!

Responding to Butch’s comment on March 30. The voting at long-term care facilities is controlled thru the “activities” department! For six years we had a family member in a local facility and I saw firsthand what happens. The “activity” personnel actually coach the residents who can half understand who to vote for and I have seen them actually fill in an absentee ballot for the resident and help the resident try to scroll a signature!

As Dr. Fauci ratchets up the scare talk about Covid again, we can see that his prescription for controlling Covid has utterly failed. The seven-day average for US Covid deaths is almost exactly the same today as it was a year ago. Roughly 70% of US citizens have gotten the vaccine and the deaths remain at about the same level. All his measures failed. Time for therapeutics.

Very few are listening because the “news” media is ignoring the fact that the USA is heading for a profound recession that is likely to make 2008 look like the proverbial “stroll in the park.” Democrat profligate spending, Democrat cuts to our oil production, and Democrat regulations are creating the deep hole our economy is about to fall into.

For the last 5 years, we have been hearing about President Trump’s children breaking the law and going to jail. Yet there are only wild accusations and no evidence. With Hunter Biden, we have a laptop computer chock full of evidence of wrongdoing and as of yesterday, we have bank transactions showing money moving from Chinese-front corporations to Hunter Biden, then to Jim Biden, then to Joe Biden. ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and MSNBC aren’t interested.

PA GOP leaders want to have security guards at off-site drop boxes for mail-in ballots, operate the boxes during business hours, and require signatures when dropping off ballots. Eight states have been using mail-in ballots for many years. Wake up GOP … it works. Just because you lost the Presidential election you want changes. But you accepted the wins for your state and federal Senate and House seats. Sounds like a sore loser.

Is Patriot54 just trying to make Democrats look stupid? Because he/she does a good job of it. Chris Rufo exposed CRT and here is why Americans are upset with it: ” Critical race theorists hold that racism is inherent in the law and legal institutions of the United States…” per Furthermore, CRT states that the American Revolution was fought to preserve slavery.

For progressive liberal teachers and school boards who are so insistent that they’re not indoctrinating our young children with radical and immoral sex education programs, they seem pretty resistant to passing laws that ban subjecting our young children to radical and immoral sex education programs. Dems be tripp’n!

I’m sure that our resident fact-checker, David M. would have picked up on this, so I’m sorry if I beat you to the punch … but Lefty has really outdone himself this time. In Tuesday’s Sound Off he said, “All Democrats stand for Ukraine and Republicans stand for Putin.” I’m starting to wonder who is more cognitively impaired, Lefty or Joe Biden.

Most people here don’t really want the truth. They just want constant reassurance that what they believe is the truth.

Trump publicly asks Russia for information on Hunter Biden. Russian state TV calls Trump their partner, saying they want to help him get re-elected. Some of you will dismiss this and continue to support him. In all my life. I never thought I’d see this in America from a major political party, or “fellow” Americans. You’re not patriots, you’re cult members. Selling out America for a con man and a gallon of gas.

I warned that President Biden should not go to Europe, but he went anyway. The result was a dangerous series of missteps and blunders. Biden announced we were training Ukrainian troops. He threatened retaliation in kind if Russia used chemical or nuclear weapons in Ukraine, and he called for Putin to be removed from power. All contradict stated U.S. policy. We desperately need Biden to stay in his Delaware basement!

To David M. in regards to oil production in the U.S. If the U.S. government that makes the rules and regulations is telling your company that we do not intend to use your product in the future, and will be using a different product to replace your product, why would you continue to spend money on trying to produce more product, or improve upon it? This is the message that is being sent by Biden. Understand now?

The right claims the left “hates” America. No, we just hate the America the right is trying to create, run exclusively by the right for the sole benefit of the right, because they believe (wrongly) they alone ‘own’ this country.

Oh boy! We’re seeing some “Mastriano for Governor” lawn signs lately. Who would vote for an insurrectionist and a phony patriot for governor? We all know who would do that. Conservatives in Pa. will drink the Kool-Aid and go for it. Josh Shapiro should wipe the floor with this guy just like Biden did Trump.

Sound Off has become a part of The Mercury that cannot be canceled. Right or wrong, it gives all who live the right of expression. Thank You.

If Trump had gotten his way, there would be no NATO today. Considering the things that are going on in the world today, Putin wouldn’t have anything to worry about. Luckily, Trump doesn’t have any say in that. He would have told Putin “Just take whatever you want.” Trump was scared to death of Putin.

All this chatter about male swimmers swimming as females. I wonder if they are bragging about their wins to their male friends? If you can’t compete with males then change your sport to something you can compete in fairly. Checkers might do the trick.

The theory of General Relativity says space and time are the same thing. Einstein discovered this when he kept showing up three miles late for his meetings.

Kudos to Joe Biden and the Democrats in the House and Senate. Biden just signed legislation to outlaw lynching. Who knew that it was legal? I sure didn’t. I thought murder or killing someone by any means was illegal. But the Democrats thought it was important to outlaw lynching amid record inflation, record-high gas prices, and a war in Ukraine. Hey, it is important to keep scratching that scab, don’t you think?

The only reason why Putin felt so emboldened to invade Ukraine without fearing any repercussions is that the US and EU have been on an awful woke trajectory of self-loathing, ignoring their own geopolitical interests to push non-issues like “destroying your own energy sector even though it doesn’t make a dent on world CO2 emissions,” etc. America is so screwed

Nonstop nonsense from Sound Off’s quartet of progressive Democrat clowns. Somewhere out there, there are 4 trees whose sole purpose on Earth is to replace the oxygen Patriot54, David M, Lefty, and Jay Miller waste. They should find those trees and apologize.

President Trump is urging Vladimir Putin to release the information he is holding about the Biden family scandal. This explains the Ukraine war. The Sleepy Joe administration is pushing the war and causing millions of casualties in order to suppress the truth. Zelensky is playing along. He should have worked with Trump when he had the chance.

Righty Tighty writes “It’s almost impossible to believe how far America has fallen since Trump left office.” No, it’s almost impossible to believe how far America fell when it elected Trump in the first place!
David M.

Why is no one looking at our southern border and the high number of illegal immigrants coming by the thousands into our country? No one in this government! I just don’t understand how this is a good thing. Who pays for medical, housing, transportation to anywhere they want to go? You and I! Come to this country but come legally!

I really miss wearing a mask. I used to keep my M&M’s in it so I could eat them like a horse.
