Your Views: Obama fails to lead, passes Syria buck to Congress

For the past three years, President Barack Obama has used every means possible to delete the authority of Congress in decision making issues. He has used Congress as his whipping boy; if he makes a bad decision, it is the fault of the Congress. Anything favorable that happens, he takes credit for. Now, after shooting his mouth off (the "red line" comment) he tells Congress that it must make a decision he is unwilling to make.

Your Views: Nuclear power is costly, but the alternatives are no better

Joan King wrote in her column recently against nuclear power. Her points about the negatives were valid. It is expensive and produces a problem waste.

Your Views: Columnist displays vendetta in attacking Georgia Power’s plans

Re: Joan King opinion page of Aug. 27, "Opinions shouldn't deter facts." It would help me to understand the wisdom proclaimed if explanations were provided as follows: Why does this self-appointed opinion expert continue to rant against Georgia Power's nuclear generating expansion and financing thereof without making any reference that the other two major investors (and eventual 50 percent owners) of the Plant Vogtle nuclear facilities are MEAG and electric membership corporations?

Your Views: Foxes run health care henhouse

Two things come to mind: 1. Getting old is not for cowards. 2. Oh, what a tangled web we weave when we practice to deceive.

Your Views: No Child law leaves many children behind

Re: "Study says waivers hurt students," from Wednesday's Times: There has been an unintended consequence of the No Child Left Behind program. The brightest and gifted children are being left behind.

Your Views: Social contracts should be part of a civilized world

A major difference between humans and other animals is we understand the importance of social contracts and social safety nets, particularly the security they provide in the context of negative random events.

Your Views: Most Riverside graduates go on to fields other than military

Thank you to reporter Savannah King for an excellent article on Harrison Summerour, the battalion commander of the Corps of Cadets at Riverside Military Academy. We appreciate the attention to an outstanding young man and the publicity for our school, but I must take issue with the headline of the article, "Leading future soldiers," which is inaccurate.

Your Views: Shouldn’t we help someone?

So I was at the gym earlier and conversation turned to Syria. "What do you think we should do?" "I don't know, what do you think we should do?"

Your Views: Outrage over Martin’s slaying doesn’t extend to other cases

All we heard for weeks after the legal shooting of Trayvon Martin was some so-called ministers in Atlanta and elsewhere screaming for justice because they knew before the trial and without ever having attended the trial that Trayvon was murdered.

Your Views: Congress must defund health law, or we all pay the price

Obamacare is a premeditated disaster. Insurance will become unaffordable due to the elimination of lifetime benefit caps; the requirement for insurance to pay 85 percent of income on patient care (vs. normal 65 percent); coverage of pre-

Your Views: King’s moving, brilliant speech 50 years ago still worth celebrating

Having taught speech communication at the University of Georgia as a young Ph.D. in that academic field, and having later served as a speech coach for decades, I welcome the widespread celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, given 50 years ago on Wednesday, Aug. 28.

The New Holland Community (Milliken Mill Village) is the home of many senior citizens and families with young children who love their quiet, historic community. The village is over 100 years old, and many people in Hall County have recent and past connections to the mill and its village.

Why can’t we disagree and still respect others’ views?

I have to admit, I'm bemused by the slogan that the homosexual lobby has adopted for its recent court victory, "Love wins." I'm confused because the most vocal proponents of same-sex marriage seem to be extremely un-loving as I understand love: "Love is patient, love is kind ... it keeps no record of wrongs ... Love bears all things, endures all things."

Removing Confederate flag an insult to Southern history

In response to the current controversy concerning the Confederate battle flag, I affirm that it is an insult to the memory of our ancestors and an affront to my culture and to Southern history, that this precious emblem be removed from public life. As a descendant of men who fought under that banner, I take it as an indictment of who I am that the flag should now be considered racist and indecent.

Let God be judge of morality, leave it out of our laws

I write in response to the letters of Paul Barnes and Duane Jones in your July 11 edition. They write of their opinion on the Supreme Court decision to do away with the law that made it illegal for gays and lesbians to wed.

Congress needs plan to rescue Social Security

Social Security and entitlement reform is an issue that will assure seniors that they will receive the benefits of hard work. Here in Northeast Georgia, we older Americans are watching closely what the U.S. Congress, especially U.S. Rep. Doug Collins and Sens. David Perdue and Johnny Isakson do to preserve Social Security this session.

Nation founded on faith has lost its way, led astray by its leaders

I believe it's obvious to most intelligent and observant people that Christians and our faith are under heavy persecution, not only in America, but on a worldwide scale never seen before. America is faced with an almost overwhelming tsunami of woes that it seems hopeless to even hope that we can overcome and prevail as a nation.

Your Views: Series on foster child care opened eyes to a serious issue

On more than one occasion, I have taken pen to paper to offer my criticism of your newspaper. It is expected that we subscribers will do that. When a newspaper does something that I feel is commendable, I will also offer my praise as well as extending my subscription another quarter.
