The Mercury’s Sound Off Saturday April 30 – The Mercury

Pottstown is looking good. Several rehabilitations of old existing buildings, including The Mercury, and industrial buildings transformed into very beautiful apartments. University courses are also available and there are jobs. Some companies have posted help search panels. The Industrial Highway activity is also steel! Downtown has all kinds of small businesses and restaurants. Pharmacy, furniture store, auto repair, auto parts, bakery and a large library.

Thanks to The Mercury for putting Chrissy Houlahan on the front page. She thinks passing bills and spending money is “good return on investment.” No — a thousand times no! I want to spend my own money, I don’t want Chrissy Houlahan or Ron Vogel spending more money. When Democrats tax me more, via deficit spending, they create inflation that, thanks to Houlahan, is costing me over $5,000 this year.

Michael Stern

I finally found a way to finance my oil refill by refinancing my house. But then fuel oil went from $4.80 a gallon to $5.17 a gallon. It’s about $1300 to put 250 gallons in my tank. So I called the bank and now I find out that the mortgage rates have gone up as well. A girl just can’t take a break from Biden’s economy.

Tina Aldez

The far right is remarkable in its ability to denigrate anything it disagrees with. Their latest is the use of the word “grooming” in its most negative sexual sense to portray teachers as paedophiles. Watch and see how quickly the use of the word spreads in Sound Off comments. They did the same with ‘awake’. “Let’s make it a pejorative! This will show them that we are serious! »

R. Minninger, you write “Vance was struck out as Robert Mueller…” Let me quote Mr. Mueller from July 2019, “Due to DOJ policy, I am unable to indict a sitting president “. When asked if he could indict after a president leaves office, he twice confirmed “yes”. Waiting for Merrick Garland to do something, anything. Snarky, I’ve never heard 78 million people cry for so long about being losers. Have a lovely day everybody.

David M.

There’s one word that would stop all illegal border crossings at the Rio Grande, and that’s alligators.

A question for Jay M, Lefty, David M and Patriot54: did you all go to the same school together? Did you all get liberal arts degrees (Democrats)? Are you all under hypnosis when commenting in Sound Off? There must be a common thread that connects you. No person can be so radical without being intertwined. Did I see you all sitting together at McD drinking “kool-aid?”


From Rick Wilson: DeSantis’ attack on Disney will cost Florida taxpayers at least $2 billion and residents of the two counties where Disney resides an average of $2,200 more per household per year in local property taxes. DeSantis is working hard to kill Central Florida’s tourism goose. This stunt is all about giving DeSantis more ammunition in his nonstop culture war as he prepares for Donald Trump’s 2024 primary


The stock market is about to crash. Interest rates are rising. Home sales plummet. Grocery and gasoline prices are skyrocketing. Biden voters sing his praises — not so much — all they do is complain about Trump. Independents disapprove in record numbers.

Hey leftist sheep signaling virtue, no one is stopping you from taking responsibility for yourself and imposing your own precautions. Don’t hesitate to do it instead of complaining, you can’t impose it on others.


Northern PA counties received 8 inches of snow last week – in April! — prove that global warming is a hoax. Then that 8 inches of snow melted that same night, proving global warming is… real, isn’t it? Time is not climate and wishful thinking is not science. I know how much we want this not to be true, but human life on earth is at risk if we don’t act. Actions – and non-actions – have consequences.


Don’t you like a curator under oath? Superstar cultist Majorie Taylor Greene was exposed last week and the lying never stopped. She couldn’t say “hello” without a smirk. Every question was a joke to her, but I guess the Trump cult loved it. Well, let’s hope she gets beaten and then she can go back to the farm. Am I right, Missy Miss?

Liberals are collapsing over Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter because it will now level the playing field. Opposing views will no longer be censored. They lost their unfair advantage to undo anything detrimental to the Democratic Party like the Hunter Biden Laptop story. With just 7 months to go, Democrats know America isn’t buying their bullshit and see through their Marxist agenda.

The ‘prosperity’ gospel: If you’re rich, it’s because God loves you (unless your name is Soros or Bezos, or you’re from Hollywood). If you are poor, you don’t love God enough. Do you have any idea of ​​the harm this invented “gospel” has caused in this country? I don’t think it’s endorsed by JC.

Is Kamala Harris still our Border Czar? Ask a friend.


Putin claims victory in Ukraine, just like his buddy Trump did in the 2020 election. Both are lies. Two peas in a pod. That’s why they love each other.

Gay Disney employees have complained that Disney has failed to fight Florida’s parental rights law. Isn’t it strange that they don’t complain about Disney Cruises sailing to countries that still criminalize homosexuality, including Jamaica, Antigua and Barbuda; Dominica; and Saint Martin?

Joe Biden is the equivalent of a human participation trophy. What a fool he and his constituents are.

Mo Brooks is videotaped explaining how congressional committee assignments are essentially a menu for submissions by special interest groups. Of course, it didn’t get aired in the corporate media since he said it was happening in both parties and the media was supported by many of those same special interest groups. Voting gives the illusion of power to the ordinary person, but politics is forged by the big bucks.


I went to a restaurant that serves “breakfast anytime”, so I ordered French toast in the Middle Ages.

Bill Wilson

Oh Patriot54, your therapist must have gotten rich having you as a patient. Your view of the role of government in our economy is simplistic to say the least. Through the taxes we all pay, we actually pay the government to make sure “things” stay affordable. And we certainly don’t expect them to implement economic policies that drive up prices. And that’s exactly what your idol Joe Biden did.


According to USA Today, President Biden and his wife paid taxes on their combined income of $610,000. The ConMan is still audited? Believe it and I’ll tell you another!

Jay Miller

Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren says Elon Musk buying Twitter is a threat to our democracy. Why? Because Musk believes in free speech. Former President Barack Obama said we need more social media censorship, not less. This is the Democratic Party today. Free speech must be suppressed because it is a threat to the Democrats’ grip on power!

Robert Minner

With the midterms upon us, please keep in mind what the Democrats have done to you, your families, your children, your businesses and the American economy over the past two years, and make sure they are all licensed. They needlessly closed schools causing irreparable harm to our children, closed businesses causing record personal and business bankruptcies, and they followed science when it worked for them and ignored it when it didn’t. Dems be tripp’n!


I read Sound Off all the time and most of the time I’m too lazy to post a comment. I must say that Robert Minninger, Michael Stern and Patriot45 have been “perfect” day after day. Today, Michael Stern pointed out how the biased media casts Conservative judges as controversial and Liberal judges as historic or something positive. Keep up the good work.


Parade magazine published an article on Liam Neeson. He was quoted saying, “You create your own luck. It won’t come to you. You have to go out and surpass yourself. Wow, over the past 8-10 years, all MSM celebrate is victimization. Everyone is a victim. It’s all someone else’s fault. It’s so refreshing to hear this man’s thoughts. His message is what we need to teach our children today.

H. Jean

Unfortunately, we don’t have enough people in the United States who understand the “basic law of common sense”, which is: “If too many people take advantage of the free ride and not enough people help pull, the cart is not going anywhere! ”
