All these signs popping up for free flu shots. Stop and read the fine print at the bottom of the sign. It says covered by most insurance companies so they’re not really free. They might be free to you but they’re going to bill the insurance company and they’ll pay it. Call and ask them if you have no insurance if you can get one for free. I’ll bet you’ll get told no.
By refusing to back the removal of statues of controversial figures on the left from Bill Clinton to Vladimir Lenin, the leftists have proven that their desire to rip down statues is about attacking their political opponents not about acknowledging the crimes or racist attitudes. The Good Doctor
Hawaiian Punch Party, can you state how much money you donated in the last several years to anyone at any time, not including Hillary?
I see Fox News is asking who’s going to buy Hillary’s book. Well somebody’s buying it because it’s number one on Amazon’s top book list. Just thought I’d give you that little information there.
Civil rights icon Barbara Jordan chaired a congressional committee in the 90s which supported immigration legislation mirrored in the RAISE Act proposed by Trump. Unlike her party today which has yet again relegated African Americans to the back of the bus, Jordan was sensitive to the impact of cheap foreign labor on her primarily black constituents.

To the writer who thinks Don Rickles is a better choice than Trump’s alternative, guess what? You got your choice. Frattbak
The person who stated why we should donate or feel sorry for the people in Texas or Florida should be absolutely ashamed of yourself. What a disgusting statement. Get help.
When are people going to realize the dangers of texting while driving? I’m tired of texters crossing the center line and running stop signs. Wise up and have some respect for human life. Anti-texter
I don’t understand it. We have a Republican president and a House and Senate that’s controlled by Republicans but all I keep hearing is how all of our problems are because of the Democrats. This sounds like it’s coming from the CCRs, the conservative crying Republicans.
To the person who commented about donating to Texas and Florida and that no one told the people to live there, what about when our area got hit hard by Agnes and people probably helped us? Just think about that.
I think Trump has realized the only way he’s going to get anything done in Washington is with the Democrats. You can’t work with the Republicans. They’re all over the place and the party is fractured into so many different segments. Traditionally down through history it’s always been the Democrats to get Social Security, Medicare etc. So he needs to work with the Democrats, maybe even decide at some point to even become a Democrat again.
I’m just about sick of all this road construction in Pottstown. Turn here, road closed; turn left or right, go a little bit, road closed. You mean to tell me they can’t do that work from nine at night till five in the morning when there’s no traffic? People do have to get to places on time for employment, appointments etc. You wonder why people don’t want to come to Pottstown along with the high taxes, trash, too much Section 8 and I failed to mention the 25 mph speed limits.
We see in Thursday’s Mercury that the cartoon on the editorial page shows two Republican elephants upset that President Trump colluded with the enemy, the Democrats. Well why would he talk to them when the stinking RINOs wouldn’t do a darn thing he wanted? They forgot it was the people that put him in there but they can’t stand that because it wasn’t them. He wasn’t beholden to them and we’re going to remember this all come November.
Thank you Mr. Gale for all you are trying to do against the evil happening in Montgomery County. You have an uphill battle because as Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn said “The principal trait of the entire 20th century is that people have forgotten God.”
Jay Miller, you said in Sound Off that 90 Republicans voted against the Harvey Relief Fund Bill. How could that be? The bill was passed by a count of 419 to 3. The account was in The Mercury and on the news networks. Do you think we can’t read or listen to the news? The next time you call Sound Off try something new, the truth.
If Pottstown wants to put up murals they should put up something classy like they have in Phoenixville instead of the childish ones they have proposed.
