Your Views: Allowing young immigrants to stay in US is asking for trouble

America, are you stupid? Maybe I misunderstood, but I heard that this country is going to allow young illegal immigrants to stay here legally. Why don't you just welcome all those many breeds of terrorists to come here, too?

Your Views: Post office’s woes linked to future health care benefits

In 1788, Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution was ratified, which requires the federal government to establish post offices and post roads. As envisioned by Benjamin Franklin, the post office bound the new nation together with a presence in every community.

Your Views: Kindness of ‘little big man’ counters world of bad news

I am so tired of picking up the paper or turning on the TV to find no good news, just violence, murder, death and stealing. I just hope each time to hear something good. Please forgive me for "tooting my on horn" but I've learned if you don't, nobody else will.

Your Views: Columnist reveals faith in government, not US Constitution

William McKenzie's article in Thursday's Times, "Moderates must outwork the far right," is a classic and should be read and studied by every conservative voter.

Your Views: Voters have spoken; leaders now must alter road sales tax

The voters have spoken and the T-SPLOST was defeated by a vote count of 63 percent against on a statewide level.

Your Views: Ga. now must focus on valid road projects

The voters of Georgia should be commended for the overwhelming vote against the transportation sales tax Tuesday. This would have been a gigantic tax increase on all Georgians and would do little to alleviate traffic problems and congestion in the metro area. It was a bipartisan effort of strange bedfellows: conservatives, liberals, blacks, whites, Democrats and Republicans.

Your Views: Politicians, hear our voices loudly from Tuesday’s primary

Wow, what a wake-up call Tuesday. You see politicians, we the people do not believe your empty promises of the past and we certainly will not believe your full-of-bologna promises for your re-election.

Your Views: Election offers a choice between 2 clear ideologies

The November presidential election is the most important in the nation's history. It will be a contest between two ideologies, not two traditional political parties. At stake is whether you want to keep our free constitutional form of government or become a social welfare state.

Your Views: President was wrong to leak classified info on SEAL raid

Referring to the July 25 article about leaking classified information, I am in complete agreement with Mitt Romney. Furthermore, it was hard to believe when I saw the film which very closely (I presume) followed the exploits and duties carried out by SEAL Team Six. I spent 20 plus years in the Army and all but basic training required a top secret clearance and some even higher. In that time we could not even overfly (as a passenger) any Soviet country.

Your Views: Column is right; free speech doesn’t warrant attacks

I want to thank Mitch Clarke for his column in Sunday's paper about free speech. I agree wholeheartedly that anyone should be able to voice his opinion without being attacked by media, politicians and celebrities.

Your Views: GOP should fight harder to beat Obama

I won't say that things in our nation couldn't be worse because they could be, and God forbid, will be, if we as a free people don't wake up from this comatose condition we now find ourselves in.

Your Views: Food shortages can’t be met by increasing farm production

Is Michael Wheeler's July 19, column, "Food prices forecast to rise worldwide" a modern day prophesy?

Your Views: Would gambling revenue add to or replace school funding?

In light of the proposed expansion of gambling here in Georgia, I would like to know exactly what will be done with the funds generated. Will it be used to replace funds currently allocated from the state budget for education, therefore allowing those funds to be used elsewhere?

Your Views: Who says Hall County taxes didn’t go up?

I am really confused. Several Hall County commissioners talk about not raising taxes and a flat tax rate over the last eight years.

Your Views: Blame gun makers, NRA for making ammo available

The Colorado movie kids' accused killer had purchased the weapons legally at three area gun stores in the last 60 days and bought 6,000 rounds of ammunition online, including a 100-round drum magazine for an assault rifle. Thank goodness buying a 100-round magazine is legal and raises no flags. Nice work writing law by the NRA and the gun manufacturers.

Your Views: Offer support to those who suffer from Parkinson’s

Parkinson's Disease is not catching or hereditary. No one knows what causes it, but some of the dopamine cells in the brain die at an accelerated rate.

Your Views: Hall County leaders should restore library funding

To Hall County Commissioners: I write on behalf of the Hall County Library System. I have been honored to be associated with them for several years. I have been able to personally view how well they perform. I have also witnessed the distressing shortage of funds allocated by the county commissioners during this recession.

Your Views: Hard to see how Christians can support corporations as people

We make decisions based on emotion, not reason, especially when it comes to religion and politics. One recent example is how most conservative Christians support "Citizens United," the Supreme Court decision that says corporations are people and have the same rights as people, even though they don't always die after 80 or 90 years like real people do.

Your Views: Sheriff showed compassion by dropping charge against father

I was encouraged to see that White County Sheriff Neal Walden showed compassion and a little common sense in dropping the charges against a heartbroken, grieving father.

Your Views: Atlanta cheating scandal shows how testing can go awry

It is my hope that the idea of testing what students have learned in order to measure what teachers have taught does not disappear as a result of the recent controversies.

Your Views: Looking closer for answers to climate and evolution debates

I think it was Joan King who recently wrote people only want support for what they believe and are not interested in facts that challenge their beliefs. As a pastor (retired) I've certainly found this true among professing Christians.

Your Views: Responsible cave explorers are careful not to transmit diseases

Excellent article in the April 10 edition of The Times about bats and white-nose syndrome that has been decimating bat populations of several different species in the U.S. for the last decade. Information such as this is vital to get out to the public, along with describing the importance of bats, as Michael Wheeler has done in his article.

Your Views: Parents who ‘opt out’ of testing don’t offer reasons

I read with great interest your April 19 article "Many parents' answer to high-stakes testing." While there are constitutional rights and laws that allow parents to opt their child out of testing, I am still a bit mystified as to why they would want to.

Your Views: Perhaps legal immigrants pose the greatest terrorism threat

There is usually quite a bit of discussion regarding illegal immigration, and what we need to do to address this issue. Unfortunately, we have not made much progress up to this point.

Your Views: Would oysters survive if we left the Chattahoochee untouched?

I think I have a simple solution for the water wars. The ecology folks want everything left natural, as if man were not here.

Your Views: Shackling suspects in court implies guilt

Now I know why they say justice is blind. They see everyone as guilty until they can prove themselves innocent. People are brought into court shackled with two armed policemen with guns to watch them. That way everyone sees that person as guilty from the start.

Your Views: Clean Power Plan would help create a healthier environment

I live in a small mountain community in Northeast Georgia and I have been a physician for 43 years. It has become obvious to me that if we do not provide a healthy environment on our earth, future generations will suffer both economically and socially, and from severe medical problems.

Your Views: Protecting state’s forests should be top priority beyond Earth Day

It is easy to take forests in Georgia for granted. They are often viewed as natural gifts akin to the sun and the clouds, timeless and steadfast. But Georgia's forests have not been here forever, and they don't take care of themselves. As we pause on Earth Day to appreciate our environment, let's reflect on the many benefits provided by working forests, and resolve to confront the public policy threat they face.

Your Views: TV fare today leaves much to be desired

When you are surfing channels on your TV, what do you find? Is it: "Belly too big? Knees too low? Head too big? Feet too slow?"
