Americans, let’s embrace our true liberal soul

The word liberal is a nasty word for many people, especially in the South. That's unfortunate because no other word expresses the soul of America as well as the word liberal, which basically means free and generous.

From the Statewide Strategic Transportation Plan 2010-2030, page 6: "People mobility in rural areas and medium-sized cities is well supported by the current network."

Feds provide for immigrant farm labor within law

The visa that is available and has been for decades is the H2A. There is no limit to the number of agricultural workers that can be brought in under it. The only physical limitations under this program are the number that can be properly housed by the applicant.

Americans have turned away from their moral foundation

I am deeply concerned about the direction our nation is going and the sad state of affairs we find ourselves in. As a Christian, I feel that most of the woes we face are due to the fact that we as Americans have abandoned the faith of our forefathers in a belief in divine providence.

Christmas Day page appreciated

We just wanted to thank the editors and all the staff at The Times for having the courage and commitment to print the verse and headlines on the Christmas Day issue. It was such a blessing to open the paper and see the headlines, the verse and beautiful depiction of the true meaning of Christmas!

Ag industry shuns guest worker plan for cheaper labor

Tom Crawford's recent rehash of the self-inflicted wounds suffered by Georgia's agriculture industry conveniently omitted an important fact.

Special sales taxes won’t end until we vote 'no'

SPLOSTs, SPLOSTs and more SPLOSTs, revenue generators beloved of politicians and their will accomplices, Chambers of Commerce.

Lake hazards are a bigger concern than burning

Instead of the Corps of Engineers' new "prescribed burning" program at Lake Lanier, I wish they would fund the removal of boating hazards such as trees and stumps that are just under the surface at full pool.

My wish list for a true leader as next president

Irony plays a strange role. This appeared in The Times horoscope section: "For every piece of advice there is another pointing in the opposite direction." Also, "you'll be given a lot of raw ingredients and not too much as to how to put it all together."

Now is a time to pray for our nation’s welfare

Politicians and pundits like to say that this is the new normal for America, that we now have to live in fear and be prepared for the worst. This is not the plight of the America God has blessed and kept safe and allowed to prevail over all evil since her founding.

Money, power used to benefit wealthy, not us

The massive columns began to sway and the ceiling that they supported began to show visible signs of cracking. Dust filled the air, and the deafening roar of an earthquake overwhelmed the senses.

Why does Hall County want to borrow and spend to build trail?

My wife and I are both incensed to hear that Hall County is planning to spend $3 million on the first two segments of a bicycle and walking path. We understand that the federal government is to pay $2.4 million of this, with the remaining $600,000 coming from the Georgia government and Hall County's SPLOST.

Your Views: The real ‘War on Christmas’ is waged against poor Jesus served

This time of year we begin hearing about the "War on Christmas," as the nonreligious seek to enforce the constitutional separation between church and state. Others talk about a "War on Thanksgiving" as early shopping begins to infringe on family time and Thanksgiving time. But there's another war far more displeasing to God, at least according to Jesus.

Your Views: Area restaurants applauded for providing free meals to veterans

Many thanks should be extended to all the local restaurants who provided free dinners to veterans on Veterans Day. Such a positive, supportive attitude only serves to strengthen the community and the country. A week later, I was impressed to see a restaurant in Buford extend the honor by providing literally hundreds of free dinners to local veterans.

Your Views: Health care works fine without federal government in the way

This is in response to Joan King's recent attempt to display her superior wisdom. I thought her forte was climate change, but now she's scolding us all for not embracing President Barack Obama's nightmare health care plan. Where's she been this past year?

Your Views: Columnist misread how US voters feel

Reply to Clarence Lusane column of Nov. 11: He is correct when he says the election was not a mandate for a Republican agenda. I disagree that it happened because of a "pervasive anti-Obama drumbeat" or "incessant Republican pounding." It happened because the American people are mad.

Your Views: Reverse brain drain; send immigrants back home

According to President Barack Obama, the citizens of the United States are not exceptional. Also, he claims we are no better than any other country on this planet.

Your Views: Law enforcement needs to clamp down on teen speeders

I have a 16-acre sheep farm on Coker Road. One recent evening, a 16-year-old boy hit my fence driving 80 mph, as he told police. He and his friend, who was also 16, were going home from East Hall High School.

Your Views: Traffic light is needed at risky Hall intersection

On Nov. 10, three men, one of them a Hall County Sheriff's deputy, were injured in a crash at Spout Springs Road and Union Circle. Thankfully none of the men suffered anything worse than a minor injury. But anyone driving in this area with any regularity knows how dangerous this intersection can be. The fact that there are not more accidents at this intersection is astounding.

Your Views: US policy of intervention only perpetuates capitalist goals

In her recent letter, Mary Young seems to refer to the 9-11 attacks during the Bush administration as if they constitute a justification for the war in Iraq. Neither Saddam nor Iraq was involved in those attacks. She also attempts to justify the war by pointing to past history, including Saddam's use of gas against Iraqi Kurds. The U.S. sold Saddam that gas. I have to wonder, who does she think the U.S. intended the gas to be used on? As suppliers of WMD, we are complicit in that crime.

Your Views: Obama in China; dictators squared

President Barack Obama left his domestic woes behind to take a foreign policy trip to China this week. He met with the leader of China in a private meeting to talk about Chinese-U.S. relations and trade policies. The American press was allowed total access to the meeting and to take photographs of the occasion. It was interesting to see pictures of the world's most powerful dictator standing next to some Chinese guy.

Your Views: No tradition is more vital than family

Family is the most important organization in time (on this earth) or in eternity. God Himself organized the first family on earth. He created all of us as His spiritual children and thus His spiritual family. Family is very important to Him. "What God hath joined together, let not man put asunder."
