The Mercury’s Sound Off for Monday, February 7 – The Mercury

The latest numbers show that 900,000 Americans have died from/with COVID – 500,000 since Joe Biden took office! This is despite the delivery of vaccines and treatments by the previous administration. Why is Anthony Fauci still managing the nation’s response to COVID after such a dismal record of failure? Why do Democrats still press for vaccines, hide, and shutdowns that have clearly failed? The only conclusion: It was never really about public health.

I see several types of “Sound Off” submission: pure opinion, (misleading or not; both sides) – acceptable. Informational (misinformation, misinformation, and factual information; both sides) – acceptable and worth discussing. Unfair, (insults, slander, slander, both sides) – unacceptable, does not help your argument, people get angry. chatter Any chance we can turn up the volume?

I ask the good folks at Sound Off to stop thinking and talk about politics and Covid (the only two topics he’s heard of) for a moment and give me some advice. I am replacing windows in my 1851 home. Most are original corrugated glass panels. It seems a shame to get rid of them. any ideas?

Good Old Jay Miller! All he keeps saying is that we’ll learn when the criminal reports come out on January 6th! I seem to remember when he was saying the exact same thing about Mueller’s outgoing reports! Abandon Jay! You are just another bag of hot air!

The proposed new Hanover city center will include 638 new homes. New Hanover uses 1.1 children per family to plan in its 10-year town plan. This means Boyertown schools must accommodate another 700 students. Schools are already at full capacity. So where will the new students go?


Begins. As of January 1, the PayPal and Venmo & Cash mobile apps began reporting transactions over $600 to the IRS. Given the increasing intrusion of government, it is not unreasonable to assume that the end game is figuring out every single purchase you and I make. In the interest of privacy and where possible, it is best to make certain transactions in cash.

When Trump was president, wherever he went, there were legions of people waiting to see him. With Biden, you don’t see anyone at the airports or lining up on the streets. He went to Pittsburgh to promote the infrastructure bill, and when he spoke, the applause sounded like there weren’t more than ten people there. When Trump gave a speech over the weekend, tens of thousands of people gathered to hear him.

Shirley Hack, if you read all of my messages, you’ll see that I also said inflation and the economy were set up by previous administrations. Reagan was in office for the same amount of time as Biden. Not just the ex, but 2 or 3 policies. I didn’t say anything about the strength of character, which we had been missing for a long time. Our politics have been playing on fear and perceived racism for more than a decade,


The mastermind behind Ray Epps’ theory is Darren Petty, whose writings have been repeatedly reinforced by Tucker Carlson on January 6, and who appeared in the documentary The Patriot Purge. “What the evidence points to is one of the biggest scandals in American history,” Petty told Carlson in an appearance on the show on the first anniversary of the Capitol riots. (Betty is a former Trump speechwriter.) As usual, turn off the sound of Parrot Tucker Lies on Sound Off.

“Pennsylvania has more charter school students than any other state in the country.” As this sinks in, try to understand why. Hint: It’s because of the failed public schools in Pa. , extremist school boards, progressive teacher unions, indoctrination agendas, and yes – lazy and selfish public school teachers themselves. They have all failed the Pennsylvania taxpayers and our children. Parents have choices and are clearly choosing not to subject their children to the current public education system.

The new “we don’t want you to vote” law is already working in Texas. One of the first victims of the new law was a World War II veteran. He was denied voting twice, told he was ineligible to vote. Perhaps he was a member of the wrong political party. When veterans and other groups are disenfranchised, it hurts the fan. stay tuned

Med Tech: Before dispensing with more medical advice, dispense with your medical credentials. Why should anyone listen to your medical advice (or just your opinion?), unless your credibility is confirmed. Your nickname alone is less than convincing.

Am I allowed to advertise a vacancy in my store that states that only white males will be considered and not black females to apply? Just ask ahead of time to make sure that’s allowed. Democrats be tripp’n!


Jay Miller has been spreading the same lie for years now. “Just wait. Just wait. You’ll see. Trump is going to jail.” It’s either income taxes, Ukraine, Russia Russia Russia hoax, and now it’s an unarmed riot where a rogue policeman shoots an unarmed protester. If Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi’s latest congressional lie contained an iota of wrongdoing, it would have already been leaked.

Any competent president wants the best and brightest to work in his administration. President Biden has one of the weakest because he bases his choices on race, gender, and sexual orientation. Biden said the vice president should be a woman. Dr. Levine was a killer of elderly people in Pennsylvania nursing homes, but she is transgender. The Minister of Transportation doesn’t have transportation experience, but that’s okay because he’s gay. The results were disastrous!

Robert Menninger

To the commentator and anyone else who thinks Al Gore is trying to get rich off the climate change “hoax,” why do you think Exxon, BP and the rest of the giant fossil fuel industry are struggling so hard to deny climate change and help fund the “hoax” movement? Oh my God! be realistic.


Butch’s favorite commander-in-chief lied again. Trump claimed he shut down ISIS but Joe Biden is busy cleaning up the mess as usual. This is 40,388 lies told and enumerated to the traitor. I think Butch thinks you’re better than that. Pathetic!


Years ago, I was friends with a federal congressional aide. He told me that politicians know that if you repeat something enough times that people will believe it. His example was that if people were told enough times by the media that pigs could fly after a while, they would go out of their homes, look up at the sky and wonder why they don’t see any pigs. And you know what? it’s the truth!

Now our local democratic representatives (Hulahan and Dean) want to help control the border between Russia and Ukraine. What in the world do they think is happening on our southern border? Please help stop the “open borders” happening right now in the US?


The Biden administration appears to be blaming the government’s failure to address the COVID crisis in a timely manner on HHS Secretary Becerra who failed to attend a WH Epidemic Response Team briefing and was involved in not obtaining new tests and drugs. time. Besera is probably too busy supervising HHS flights for minor immigrants to Wilkes Barre Scranton, Lehigh Valley, Harrisburg, and other airports throughout the Northeast.

Lefty is trying so hard to be a crazy king! Now he says every Supreme Court justice appointed by a Republican president is anti-women, anti-black and anti-white. Typical response by a Democrat – “Anyone who doesn’t look like me or doesn’t agree with me is a racist, a bigot and a Nazi.” Snarky plays 3D chess while Lefty is still reading the instructions on how to play checkers.


How ridiculous is that? After allowing 2 million illegal aliens to stream across our borders in 2021, Joe Biden may send US troops to protect Ukraine’s borders. 2 million equals the population of New Mexico and is larger than 14 other states. I’m all for immigration, but let’s do it right by lowering requirements rather than running away. Like the tin man, Joe says, “If only I had a brain.”

Well, again, let’s try to figure out what the Covid-19 vaccines can and can’t do for you. They cannot prevent you from contracting Covid-19. They cannot prevent you from spreading Covid-19. This is the purpose of masks. But if you do catch Covid-19, it will relieve your symptoms and greatly reduce the likelihood that you will need to go to hospital and/or die. Your choice, I don’t care.

I’m starting to think that many Americans have been studying history and say it’s just fake news.

Red China produces millions of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) graduate experts each year. The United States of America has a lot of liberal arts graduates who worry about issues of toxic masculinity, equality, and transgender rights. bless them China fears control of the South China Sea and the strength of the yuan (China’s currency). I don’t need to be a fortune-teller to know who will win the battle of the USA against red China in 2030. Sad.

Larry from Limerick

It is very sad that after 50 years in Washington, DC, Joe Biden had no evidence that the United States is the greatest country on the planet. Joe Biden quoted January 31 on immigration: “I think one of the key things… is if we figure out why they[illegal immigrants]left[their home]in the first place,” in addition to free health care and welfare, food stamps, etc. . How can Biden be so stupid?

Sam Lake

Joe Biden’s press secretary, Gene Psaki, now says that Biden’s escorts are doing everything they can to stop the crime. Even department-backed Psaki debunked the lie that the Democrats’ Bailout for America had money for the police. That lie was exposed a long time ago. Kamala Harris’ laugh is clearly contagious because Psaki was laughing about crime in yesterday’s podcast.

Michael Star

A Chinese lab created the virus, and the Democrats can’t do anything about it. Their backers will not let them make money because their money is in the Chinese industry, and they will not give up a dime of it. Democrats own it, and we Americans are just their sponsors. They want open borders because of drugs and cheap labour.

I admire the delusion that is taking place in our nation’s capital. The Democrats are really impressive, but as in any great puppet show, those who watch the show can’t see who’s controlling the strings.
