The Mercury (Pottstown, PA) - - LOCAL NEWS -

House Mi­nor­ity Leader Nancy Pelosi, a Catholic, said dur­ing her town hall on CNN that Pope Fran­cis agrees with her po­si­tion that the pres­i­dent’s tem­po­rary pause on refugees is not Chris­tian. How­ever when some­one in the au­di­ence pointed out that Pope Fran­cis dis­agrees with her po­si­tion on abor­tion, she said she knows more about the sub­ject than he does. How con­ve­nient.

Hav­ing in­cited race riots and the law en­force­ment as­sas­si­na­tions Obama is ap­par­ently not done fo­ment­ing an­ar­chy. With over 250 of­fices, his “Or­ga­niz­ing for Ac­tion” left­ists have been abet­ting in­sur­rec­tion since the fall elec­tions. Mark Fur­long

This is for all the teach­ers out there es­pe­cially at Strouds­burg. Stop us­ing the chil­dren as hostages ev­ery time you strike. Work out your prob­lems over the sum­mer like adults. It sick­ens me the way you make the chil­dren and tax­pay­ers suf­fer to get your way. By the way I work in ed­u­ca­tion as well so I’m fully aware of the games you are play­ing.

My doc­tor sug­gested I start an ex­er­cise pro­gram but to do it grad­u­ally. So this morn­ing I drove past the gym. Jim Fitch

My com­ment goes out to the caller who al­ways has some­thing neg­a­tive to say about Tiger Woods. If the best is judged by how much money they have earned in their ca­reer Tiger Woods is at the top of the list. His great-great grand­chil­dren will have a hard time go­ing broke. Facts Mat­ter

You know the rea­son Michael Flynn lied is be­cause his boss lied. It just goes in the fam­ily. Mon­key see mon­key do. A lot of mon­keys in there.

The main me­dia news has been caught in 40 lies in the past week alone. One was that the Martin Luther King statue has been re­moved, an­other that Trump didn’t send con­do­lences to the mosque in Canada af­ter the shoot­ings. Stay alert folks.

Thank you to The Mer­cury on Tues­day for the nice ar­ti­cle and to Morn­ingstar Fel­low­ship for hav­ing the spe­cial needs prom. Ev­ery­body was smil­ing and hav­ing a great time.

Just to let the read­ers know how my DISH bill went up for chan­nels 3, 6 and 10 be­cause of mil­lion­aire celebri­ties that they have to pay on these chan­nels. It’s ridicu­lous any­more. Any­one else have a com­ment?

Don­ald Trump was dis­cussing highly con­fi­den­tial in­for­ma­tion in front of ran­dom cit­i­zens. He is a threat to our na­tional se­cu­rity.

What is a mother to do with her baby af­ter be­ing raped by her hus­band or lover or some street derelict was the shock­ing ques­tion asked in Sound Off re­cently. The child is in­no­cent on any level and de­serves life and pro­tec­tion from the mother. There are courts for child sup­port and agen­cies for adop­tion. There are count­less child­less cou­ples wait­ing for the priv­i­lege to raise a child. All life is a gift from God and may heaven help us. Martha

Just a com­ment about the Tues­day Mer­cury ar­ti­cle about the po­lice raise in Pottstown. They are worth ev­ery penny these men and women. God bless them.

I read in the pa­per where Jor­dan Spi­eth is keep­ing up with Tiger Woods’ pace. I hope Tiger tells him when his wife comes af­ter him with a nine-iron to duck. JB, Gil­bertsville

I agree with the per­son who said that any­one who be­lieves what the Repub­li­cans have to say has far too much time on their hands and needs to get a life.

Pres­i­dent Trump said the Amer­i­can peo­ple will not have to pay for the wall. So if he’s so sure that the Mex­i­cans will pay let him and his bil­lion­aire cabi­net pay for it. Let them try and get their money back from Mex­ico so that if Mex­ico doesn’t pay the Amer­i­can peo­ple who ac­tu­ally work and pay taxes with­out loop­holes won’t get screwed once again. Fed Up

I’m on So­cial Se­cu­rity. I have found a way to make ends meet. I make less than $30,000 a year. I am go­ing on Wel­fare.

I just read in The Mer­cury that some of the bridges in Pottstown are fall­ing apart and they need re­pair. Maybe that’s the an­swer to all the speed­ing that’s go­ing on along Moser Road. Peo­ple are try­ing to get out of town be­fore the bridges crum­ble and they can’t get out.

In ref­er­ence to Mark Fur­long’s Sound Off about the low profit mar­gin of the fast food in­dus­try, I don’t have any idea where he is get­ting his in­for­ma­tion. The fast food in­dus­try is a very very high profit mar­gin. Un­less you’re in it and higher up in man­age­ment they’re not go­ing to tell you that. How much does it re­ally cost to put a burger and fries on the counter? John from Park­er­ford

Get set folks, a de­vel­oper is ready to fill up Ch­ester County like they did with Mont­gomery County. More kids, more houses, more taxes. Get ready for them.
