The Mercury’s Sound Off Saturday, June 18 – The Mercury


It seems that most Hispanic American citizens are against illegal immigration. Along the Mexican border, Democrats are being removed from office for allowing open border chaos. Approval for Biden’s gatekeeping policies among Hispanics has fallen to 26% in recent polls. This bodes well for the unifying Republican economic message and law and order for American citizens.

Michael Stern

Biden’s economic policies and refusal to take common-sense corrective action amount to repeatedly punching every American, regardless of political affiliation or social status. From 401(k) refueling and lack of essential foodstuffs, to skyrocketing fuel prices, illegal immigration and historic inflation. Joe Biden is a real Manchurian candidate but he is too mentally unfit to realize it. Voting for any Democrat in the midterm and 2024 presidential elections is pure suicide.


None of us like to hear about a group of people being shot and killed in a school, supermarket, church, doctor’s office, night club, music festival, street corner or anywhere , but only a communist wants to take the Americans. ‘ The divine right to bear arms because of this. Only a tiny minority of people are affected by this. Pray for the serenity to accept what you cannot change.

Lie D

Why were Democrats allowed to hijack June 19 celebrations when the same cannot be said for neo-Nazis and Holocaust memorabilia? Three hundred thousand Republicans, more than 10% of whom were black, sacrificed their lives during the Civil War. It was not so that emancipation could be undone by a transition of plantations from rural to urban. Whatever price black Democratic leaders have set for undermining their own race has clearly been met.

Mr. Furlong

Leftist, I didn’t live in the 1980s, how did I register to vote as a Republican in 1979? I’m still waiting for a good job thanks to a tax cut. And the Taliban ruled Afghanistan in 1977. Cato, you answer me so you have to take me seriously, without reference. Billy G., soldiers protect your rights to be stupid 24/7/365, why can’t they be honored for more than one day?

If super woke radical progressive employers like Amazon give women $4,000 to have an abortion, are they also giving women $4,000 if they choose not to kill their babies? It’s not “pro-choice”, it’s “pro-abortion”. Plain and simple. Dems be tripp’n!


Earth to Barney! Earth to Barney! Anti-gun Democrats are not responsible for the Texas elementary school shootings. Pro-gun, mentally ill Republicans, who don’t care about children being killed, are the culprits behind this horrific event. White kids, brown kids or black kids, it doesn’t matter as long as they have their guns. The law of the killer is getting crazier and crazier! Banish all assault weapons!

Everyone should be forced to watch “2000 mules”. I am convinced that not only was the last election tampered with, but many others before, but were never questioned. We just have better ways to prove it now! Stop calling it the big lie, the January 6 committee should be called that! As everyone bury their heads in the sand, because oh my god, it was Trump, and watch our country become the socialist country it is becoming.


It’s terrifying that 2 Independent Senators and 47 Democratic Senators, including “devout Catholic” Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey, voted to approve nationwide abortions right up to the time of birth! This horrible bill goes beyond Roe v. Wade and far beyond the rest of the civilized world!

Robert Minner

President Biden called the “MAGA group” the most extreme in US history. He obviously forgot the Ku Klux Klan which was a Democratic organization of which his friend the Democratic Senator Robert Byrd was a member. What about the BLM, or Antifa, or the Black Panther Party, or Code Pink, or the FALN, or the far-left Democratic group that bombed the Capitol in 1983 — Democrats all of them.


The same heartless fools who protest and shout “I’ll never let any man tell me what I can do with my own body!” are the same fools who have been idolizing Dr. Fauci for two years. And they wonder why no one takes them seriously?

Miss! Miss

The Pentagon since 2010 (12 years ago) has recognized that climate change could pose a threat to where the military operates and its roles and missions. ( Guess it’s infested with tinfoil hat cultists. Find out. None of this is secret.

From The Hill: Former Attorney General Bill Barr said he was concerned in the aftermath of the 2020 election that then-President Trump had become “detached from reality” as Trump made repeated statements about the electoral fraud. “And I was kind of demoralized because I was thinking, ‘Boy, if he really believes in this stuff that he’s lost touch with – he’s disconnected from reality if he really believes in this genre of things,'” Barr continued.


Don’t the dope Democrats and progressive baby killers know that nothing will really change even if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v Wade? It just means that states will put in place common sense laws regulating the killing of babies. Nothing at all will change in Democratic states like CA, PA, NY, MA, WA, IL, etc.


How awful to feel that everything is a conspiracy against you. Are you really for a platform position without politics? One that will only reignite the big lie of the 2020 election. An action that, if your candidates win, will only be revenge action against the Biden administration. How sad.


The US unemployment rate is at its lowest in 50 years. At 3.6%, almost everyone who can work is working. Yet Democrats insist on buying votes through socialist grants like $2,000 for each person for God knows what reason, canceling student loan repayments for borrowers, and shifting accountability to taxpayers, etc. It’s time to put an end to this socialist madness!

Mr Hankey

Responding to Robert Minninger on June 9 and migrants dying crossing the southern border. Never mind that they all die while entering illegally! Not all these illegal immigrants are migrants! They are illegal aliens! Robert is right Biden encourages and promotes this illegal activity! Biden must be charged, tried and executed for criminal terrorism against America!

No name is wrong. No conspiracy is necessary when you’re the richest kid on the block. Big Pharma determines the rules so the government. Agencies, hospitals, pharmacies, doctors and nurses obey or lose their jobs, their privileges or even their licenses, as we have witnessed locally. All to make billions of dollars with no liability to Big Pharma if your children are injured and to weaken their immunity for life so they can sell more drugs forever.

Filing of information

Do yourself a big favor and see the movie “The Green Book.” It’s a great movie in educating two different types of people and audiences too.

Jim Tribett

With abortion likely to be illegal before the end of this year, legislatures should move quickly to require registration of pregnancies so they can be tracked to ensure they all come to term. Pregnancy lists should be a public record so that citizens can help authorities track pregnancies. It takes a village.

J Swift

Hopefully with the catastrophic experience right now, the Democrats will open their eyes and do a better job in the election. We cannot afford another two and a half years of this leadership. With the Democratic Party’s woke elites telling Biden what to do, you have to admit he’s not to blame.


Right-wing flak for left-wing opinion piece printing. Flak from the left for right-wing opinion pieces. Clearly, the Mercury is doing something right. Now if we could just ask you to check out Sound Off’s submissions…

The body ages faster than the brain, except for politicians.

Finally, equity has arrived in Oregon. Kudos to the Democratic Governor for signing the bill, passed by the Democratic Legislature, that puts tampon dispensers in all boys’ bathrooms (yes, K-12). Finally, the boys won’t have to ask one of the girls to get them one. Shame on Republicans for opposing this vital legislation. Republicans also oppose urinals for girls’ restrooms.

Dan Fields

During Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation hearings, Ms Jackson could not provide a definition of what a woman was. Democrats appear to have studied the definition and they are attacking an alleged Supreme Court decision on Roe v. Wade. Who knew that people who give birth were only women?

I was excited to join the LGBTQ movement until I found out it didn’t stand for Let’s Get Biden To Quit.

The sly curator

Left-handed. I’m amazed at how much you and Donald Trump have in common. Both of you are very opinionated, “thin-skinned” and very good at name-calling. A major difference. Mr. Trump acknowledges all of his comments, where you only comment anonymously. Be a big boy (or a big lady) and sign your name like those of us who aren’t ashamed of what we contribute!
