The Mercury’s Sound Off for Thursday, November 24 – The Mercury

The Mercury’s Sound Off for Thursday, November 24 – The Mercury

Just read in today’s paper… “Man found guilty of DUI 12” To make matters worse, his DUI 11 was only six days before this recent one. What kind of Law Enforcement Authority do we have? This criminal could have seriously injured, crippled, or even killed someone. Why is someone with so many DUI’s free to maim or kill us?

Is anyone else sick of their paycheck being taxed almost in half, then taxed on everything they buy, only to see Biden and the Democrats send that tax money off to other countries to solve their problems as we get closer slowly to the precipice?

If we learned anything from the election, the Democrats are happy but not smart. They voted to expel Pennsylvania businesses and others from entering due to high taxes. How would you like to bring your business here with all the crime we have and vote for a governor who went easy on crime and drugs while he was Pennsylvania’s attorney general? You voted for the party instead of what’s good for dad.

Thank you representatives of the Pennsylvania House for your vote to impeach Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner. Hopefully, the Pennsylvania Senate will have the good sense to remove Krasner from office and help the people of Philadelphia fight rising crime in their city.

Congratulations to Joe Biden for standing up for democracy, abortion rights, and the right to vote. Thank you for saving our Medicare and Social Security and taxing the corrupt rich. Trump handed him a bad economy, Covid-19, war and assorted other issues that conservatives neglected. Joe Biden is a real man and we are thankful for that.

On November 16, Stern resubmitted a post citing Fox News talking points on inflation, crime, etc. They support Democratic policies and positions. You are in the minority in your beliefs, instead of complaining, why don’t you propose solutions to improve America?


Hello retired friend, there is really only one logical explanation for the red wave not materializing like the red tsunami most normal people expected. Write this down if your short-term memory is as bad as we all suspect. Here it is. Never underestimate the power of really dumb people when they come together in a really big group.


Many of us are thrilled to see Trump running for president again. His fragile ego will be totally crushed and destroyed when he is hit again, worse than last time. There will be videos of him crying.

I win! I want to thank Mr. Soros for the money, but I’m a trust fund baby, so what is money, really? I am now in favor of fracking (I had to, don’t worry, I’ll change). Now they are talking about me going further. If Joe retires, he could be vice president. Imagine the ticket, Harris-Fester Man 24. That would be a no-brainer.

Hello realist climate change cultist, here to point out that the reason Buffalo got so much snow last week is that the waters of the Great Lakes were 10 degrees warmer than normal. No problem.


Mr. Stern: Curious where those inflation numbers come from. No date. I quote Pew Research, Forbes and the IMF. Bruce: Are my posts petty? I’ll try to listen. Some egregious insults and insults occur here, which I occasionally respond to. I strongly reject misinformation, not my intention to insult. However, I do not apologize for stating the facts about Trump’s fraud and proven lies, especially election lies that undermine trust in our system.


Elon Musk caused more uproar among liberal snowflakes everywhere on Wednesday when he emailed Twitter employees with an ultimatum, forcing them to commit to an “extremely tough” work ethic or leave the company. Imagine that. The owner of the company he works for tells him that he expects him to work hard. What a nerve! Dems be tripp’n!


Lefty, “Bless your heart!” You are proud democrats! In 22 months under the Democrats, inflation went from 1.4% to 8%, gasoline $2.38 now $4.00 heating oil closed at $6.00, diesel $6.50, while the SPR, more than 4,500,000 “illegal aliens”, including 98 unknown and terrorist watch lists. escaped” across a collapsed southern border, fentanyl kills 300 a day and records crime for some accomplishments. Lefty, be proud, I call it “stupid”!

Just the facts!

For just a retired guy, I see you’re a proud Democrat. I hope you have a good pension plan, savings account, and supplemental insurance in the recession you voted for. Your money will go fast on taxes, home and auto insurance, and home repairs. Whatever dreams you had, forget it, you won’t be able to afford it. Remember you voted to support illegals, increase taxes, crime and you chose two puppets to help them and more.

Some people know that regardless of the organization, there are individuals of that order who are fake and should not be listened to. Are you guilty of believing in liars? Read Sound off.

More breaking news on the Mar-A-Lago raid, from the Washington Post: “Federal agents and prosecutors have come to believe that former President Donald Trump’s motive for allegedly taking and keeping classified documents was largely his ego and a desire to hold on to the materials as trophies or souvenirs, according to people familiar with the matter.” So it doesn’t look good for a big prosecution in this minor story.

Does leftist puppet Merrick Garland believe any of the nonsense that comes out of his own mouth? He is a partisan mercenary who has destroyed any credibility the Department of Justice had by carrying out political prosecutions on behalf of the people who pull the strings for Biden.

Bill Wilson, a piece of advice: leave it. Your experiment in trying to be funny is over. Come on Jim Fitch!

It hasn’t learned a lesson from the election, and the Republican Party hasn’t learned its lesson from the election. Give them enough rope. They will also hang themselves for the 2024 election!

To Un-named, your term for fact checking and education is “painful”? As for never Trumper, dammit! Most politicians are proficient in BS, Trump elevated it to an art form, I vote in Republican primaries, I hope the rest of the voters will stick their heads out of the dark tunnel below their waist and vote for a person who will lead , not to drive the rabble to new lows.

God and I have a very good relationship… but we both see other people.

I wouldn’t be surprised if CNN is actually funding Donald Trump’s re-election campaign. Without Trump on the news, no one watches CNN. Watch for Trump 24-7-365 for the next two years on CNN.


The only thing that helps mass shootings are metal detectors. Schools, churches, sports complexes, restaurants, etc. The cost is nothing compared to the lives saved.


I never thought I would have to congratulate Jay Miller on something he wrote. But he did publish a nice little article about Donald Trump on November 21. Thanks. Together we can, “Make America Great Again”


Resident House Plant (Joe Biden), wants to send an additional $38 billion to Ukraine, which means nearly $700 per American taxpayer. If this passes, it would mean the total sent to Ukraine would be $104 billion in less than a year. Wake up people and understand that the Democratic Party wants to destroy your life and your country. I guess the Biden crime family needs more money!

Who was behind the Republican Accountability Project ads showing self-described GOPers lamenting election deniers? Some were former intelligence officials, for example, Michael Hayden, who publicly discarded the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop and corroborating testimony from Hunter turned out to be true. Biden quoted them in a debate with Trump. Exit polls reported that misinformation like theirs influences elections. In retrospect, before 1/20/21, we were safer, freer, more prosperous, and on the path to a better education.

When I was a child, I would often walk with my dad, and he would take off his hat when we passed a woman. I asked him why and he told me: “to show respect to a lady”. My father has been gone for over 60 years, but I often wonder what he would say today, with half the women so extremely evil as to take the life of their own unborn child. My respect for women has diminished considerably.

Recently, while Rufus and I were greeting students at a local school, a second grade girl said to me, “Mr. Fitch, I want to thank you for bringing Rufus to our school.” Moments like that reinforce my belief that our presence at school is beneficial to children.
