Your Views: T-SPLOST may be when Georgians say ‘that’s enough’

Your Views: Pastors, protesters play race card in Fla. shooting

Well, well, well. I see the race prostitute, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, was in Atlanta. It wasn't devastating enough for him that a family lost a loved one, so let's see why Mr. Jackson is really here besides what money he thinks he can make.

Your Views: Exercise the right to vote earned by the lives of many Americans

When I woke up at 0-dark-hundred (4 a.m.) the morning of March 6 so I could open my polling place by 7 a.m. (poll workers have to be there at 6), I asked myself, "Why in the world are you doing this?" The answer came back in a flash, "Because I can!"

What a blessing to have the documentary "The Roosevelts" presenting an inspiring family biography filling us with the spirit of grace, inspiration and love so necessary in a time of war.

Your Views: Pro football is a worthless pastime played by violent people

OK, so again an important program was interrupted for the "nfl." I print nfl in small letters because that's how important it is to me. So they are special people who can kick a ball around. Wow! That really takes education.
