Your Views: ‘Be the people’ letter inspires

Thank you, Candice Pinzon, so very much for your words of wisdom on the Nov. 9 Opinion page. If everyone would "be the people" as you suggest, this world would be a better place to live for all of "U.S." (United States, especially).

Your Views: Vietnam Wall memorial is a moving tribute

I went off to Washington to see all the sights I could see. I didn't plan to stay long; I didn't know how long I would be. I got a ride with a guide. He said he could show me all the sites, and for $30, I felt that was about right.

Your Views: If Obama leads nation to pray, then re-election will be worth it

Nov. 6 has come and gone, and President Barack Obama has been re-elected for the next four years. And yet I see no singing or dancing in the streets. For the most part, it appears that the anticipated joy and happiness that was suppose to result in his re-election has been replaced by grievous disappointment and gloom and doom rhetoric.

Your Views: It’s time to stop pointing fingers, unite for our nation

Since the Nov. 6 election, I've heard lots of conservatives throwing tantrums and behaving like spoiled children.

Your Views: Obama voters, don’t cry when your jobs go overseas

Four more years of the same old, same old, except you will see rising taxes, gas prices, food prices and consumer goods prices. There is no sense in stressing out over this debacle since the majority must like socialism and a welfare state like the Soviet Union.

Your Views: With election over, leaders must unite for common good

President Barack Obama was re-elected and would hope that our national, state and local elected leaders would accept this historic fact as a second opportunity to help bring our country together and work for the common good of all of the American people.

Your Views: Better nutrition for children now means a healthier military later

As we remember the many sacrifices of our military this Veterans Day, we should also consider the upcoming generation and what our nation can do to help ensure our long-term national security.

Your Views: Americans, it's time to unite and ‘be the people’ again

Recently, I was at the National Archives and saw the hand-printed documents our country was founded upon. I cannot describe to you the emotion, the sense of honor and respect, the call to duty that seeing those frail papers firsthand produces in each and every heart.

Your Views: US will go the way of Rome

America has become Rome, and there is no doubt that we will suffer the same fate.

Your Views: A better option wasn’t available on election ballot

The election is over and the people have spoken.

Your Views: Our nation has lost its way

Today, America is a lost nation. Lost by its own will, lost by turning its back on God, lost in itself.

Your Views: Free markets don’t provide best health care

While the middle-class economy, Social Security, the environment and various other justice issues are of grave concern, the primary issue for me in this election was health care.

Your Views: Fire insurance cost rises without new Hall station

I received a letter from my insurance company today; they are canceling my homeowners policy, and before you jump to conclusions, I pay my premiums on time. No, this has to do with a fire rating in my area.

Your Views: Ceremony honoring Korean War vets was touching, appreciated

This is for the families of fallen heros of the Korean War and from Hall County: The Korean Vets Memorial that was unveiled Saturday at Rock Creek Veterans Park was a very touching program. The Korean Veterans of Georgia are to be commended for their dedicated and hard work and for their vision in remembrance.

Your Views: Charter school option should stay at local level

We must be clear that a no vote on constitutional amendment No. 1 regarding charter schools is not a vote against charter schools. It's a vote in support of the ability of our locally elected and accountable Hall County school officials to make those local public charter school decisions. Public charter schools are already in existence in Hall County and are an important offering to our community.

Your Views: Ga. lawmakers overdue to fix roads funding

I am very pleased to see state Sen. Steve Gooch is trying to solve our problem with road funding in Georgia. This should have been addressed years ago but has been allowed to continue to a point of emergency.

Your Views: Madison County’s decision was based on avoiding a losing battle

Perhaps guts had nothing to do with the decision the school board in Madison County made concerning the religious monument on school grounds. Maybe its members chose to not set up their county for a budget-busting legal case that could bankrupt them.

Your Views: Iraq’s problems were caused by Bush's policies, not Obama's

Response to Darrell Newton's letter Friday: Certainly, everyone has the right to say what he thinks, but they really should have the facts before doing so.

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.

Your Views: Madison County school board caves to atheists

Here we go again, folks, just another example of no guts: The school board in Madison County caved to an atheist group over a monument on school grounds that had Bible verses and quotes on it that was paid for by private donations.

Your Views: Vote could make reckless drivers share the cost of spinal injuries

Tens of thousands of Georgians live with life-long disabilities due to brain and spinal cord injury. As medical technology, safety and trauma care have improved, more people survive traumatic injury, but many then face a lifetime of physical, behavioral and cognitive impairments requiring ongoing support services.

Your Views: There’s no good reason for vote for any Democrat in fall election

When you add it all up, the steady stream of lies from the White House, the Democratic party and its supporters, the liberal left media, there is only one answer: There is NO Democratic candidate worthy of even a single vote. In fact, I don't see how a Democrat could vote for himself or herself.

Your Views: Obama’s actions have cost us peace, cost him respect

President Barack Obama withdrew all of our troops both in Iraq and Afghanistan against the recommendation of his own military, the CIA and his own secretary of defense and secretary of State.

Your Views: Mule Camp Market festival was a big success

A huge thank you should go to the Gainesville Jaycees. They did a fantastic job with the Mule Camp Market festival last weekend in Gainesville.

Your Views: Germany’s offer aims to reverse US brain drain

Why is Germany offering tuition-free college educations to Americans (and others)? What we're seeing here is an attempt to reverse the brain drain.

Your Views: TV show’s view of Appalachian South is hardly complimentary

While I don't usually read Ronda Rich's columns, I did on Oct. 7. The heading got my attention and I read on. She wrote about the TV series "Justified" and how good it is. While I agree that it's a great show and high on my favorites list, I am puzzled by some things she wrote about the Appalachian South. Not being familiar with her writings, I hope it was done tongue-in-cheek when she wrote, "But here's what 'Justified' does best: It gets the Appalachian South right without reducing us to mockery or ridicule."

Your Views: Hall school board needs to be aware of immunization dangers

To Hall County Board of Education: I am sure that you have been made aware by now of the recent announcement by Dr. William Thompson, formerly of the Centers for Disease Control and co-author of the study on immunizations and their link to autism. If you have not, what has come to light is that Dr. Thompson has publicly declared that the study and its findings were falsified. He has declared that the data was altered to make it appear as if there was no link.

Your Views: Climate change letter based on bogus sources

Regarding W.T. Hinds' recent letter, I noticed the online version contained citation links. After checking some, I thought it important to offer background on sources for his comment "Earth has not warmed at all since about 1999."

Your Views: Punishment doesn’t fit crime in case of Georgia star Gurley

It is absolutely unbelievable that Todd Gurley would be suspended indefinitely for playing football for Georgia for supposedly autographing some sports articles and being paid for it, while last year, Jameis Winston continued to play and won the Heisman Trophy and the national championship though he was investigated for rape at Florida State.

Your Views: No global warming for 18 years, but carbon dioxide is increasing; why?

Insanity is sometimes described as doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results. This certainly describes manmade global warming.
