In response to Dr. Tom Smiley's letter about President Barack Obama and guns, I have to make a few comments.
Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a budget for FY 2012 called "Cut, Cap, and Balance." The U.S. Senate would be expected to offer it's version of a 2012 budget. Next a committee would be formed to hammer out a budget acceptable to both houses and the president. That's the way the American people expect government to be managed.
Apparently there are far too many Americans who are unaware of the suffering of millions of people around the world who have been ruled by czars and gangs.
Believing that something won't happen, doesn't mean it won't. Many people think that despite the many negative factors that exist, President Barack Obama will barely cross the next presidential election finish line as victor.
I would like to know what planet Carole Scandrol lives on or at the least, what flavor Kool-Aid she's drinking. Sure the government can operate like an individual or business. No entity can operate spending more money than it brings in for an extended period of time. It boils down to government getting back to taking care of what it's supposed to and eliminating all the extras.
My name is Charlie Pearce, retired Navy captain and husband of 43 years to my wife, Gretchan Pearce. I served a little over 27 years in the U.S. Navy and had some combat experience in-country during Vietnam (1966-67) and again in Vietnam during 1972. I retired from the Navy in 1992 and worked in the private sector until 2002.
As usual, Kathleen Parker shows her uninformed bias against accomplished women in her very negative opinion of President Barack Obama's mother, who was denied coverage from CIGNA.
Government cannot operate like individuals or businesses. Its income is dependant on taxes paid and when so many people are unemployed, its income is way down.
Agree to the debt limit increase by agreeing to a two-year decrease in all federal salaries by 10 percent. This solution avoids any tax increase and would cut federal spending. This solution would be popular with most Americans.
It is troubling that some in Washington want to cut spending in Medicaid and Medicare across the board.
I heard the president say today that the average American citizen doesn't keep up with aspects of the debt, GDP, etc. Maybe not, but unlike the president, we have enough sense to know that you cannot spend your way out of debt, nor spend money you don't have.
I recently took my granddaughter to her karate class. While waiting, I watched outside until her class was ready. I observed a gigantic SUV pull up and stop. The driver let two young boys out by themselves while he found two parking spots large enough for his vehicle.
It's election time again, and as usual, we have been given a crisis to help us make up our minds. The planting field is ready, now we need the fertilizer. It will not be spread by machine but by word of mouth.
What makes me shake my head about Republicans and tea party members is that they are self-centered and only think about their wallets while hiding behind the flag and proclaim liberty and freedom.
Surely more than a few readers of The Times settled in with their paper on the morning of the Fourth and savored, along with their coffee, the reason for the holiday and some of America's best civic poetry: Mr. Jefferson's draft of the Declaration of Independence, as edited and approved by friends, colleagues and political leaders, in General Congress Assembled. And reprinted on The Times editorial page.
Readers of The Times should appreciate your carrying Tom Crawford's columns, especially now that Crawford has focused on the travesty of the Atlanta Braves moving to Cobb County. As Crawford observes, this brazen looting of the public treasury by the Cobb County commissioners on behalf of Liberty Media is simply breathtaking. These guys will scream all day against socialism, unless the socialism is for their rich friends. Please call Rep. Carl Rogers and ...
The National and Southeastern Corrugated Steel Pipe Associations are responding to the Oct. 12 Times article explaining code changes in Hall County for culverts and stormwater pipes that excludes all types of metal pipe from "live streams" (perennial) and "under county roads."
