Beyond labels, both liberal and conservative ideas have their purpose

In response to Alan Shope's "America, let's embrace our true liberal soul (Jan. 6):"

Letter on birthdays correct on how we ignore true heroes

Kudos to Fred Chitwood for having the courage to write about honoring someone of questionable background with a national holiday while virtually ignoring the birthday of a great American military leader. And congratulations to The Times for having the guts to run his letter.

Pay sent home by immigrants is strong, effective foreign aid

It seems to me that the portion of their pay that the Mexican immigrants send home, to their own families, in their own villages, is the best foreign aid program that the United States has. No bureaucrat in D.C. or Mexico City intervenes. Women and children get the money. That is good for everyone.

Columnist’s views are welcomed

Dear Joan King: You have many detractors, but I am certainly not among them. Yours is a voice of reason in an ocean of insanity. While I do not always agree with you, your points are well thought-out and presented. Keep up the good work. We need you.

Celebrations of historic birthdays don’t match up

This month we observe the birthday of two famous American men. Since it is no longer politically correct to study truth in history, it is only fair and honest for someone to make a comparison of the two individuals in question. I will make a description and you decide the identity of these two men.

Choosing our time of exit is selfish, wrong

Joan King's column about the "right to choose one's death" published Tuesday was irresponsible and reckless. To say that I was taken aback and disgusted is a gross understatement. Ms. King writes some outrageous articles, but this one topped them all.

You think bridges rank low? Try more taxes for transit

Has anyone else noticed a proliferation of news stories about Georgia DOT local road programs and about the T-SPLOST vote upcoming, while at the same time the Georgia Newspaper's Partnership Poll (of what citizens want the Georgia General Assembly to work on this year) put the "Roads and Bridges" category at 2 percent preference?

Columnist should learn more about creation at museum

While the Jan. 5 column, "Stuck in the backward land of Absurdia," was very entertaining, I have a couple of questions for Brandon Givens, the columnist:

Jenkins was true to his family, friends, residents in need

My first memory of Ed Jenkins was September 1955, the beginning of our friendship as students at the University of Georgia Law School. I was impressed with his wonderful sense of humor, his down-to-earth personality and we had much in common: Ed a product of the mountains and me, a product of the red clay hills of Madison County and the cotton fields. Neither of us grew up with a silver spoon, as did some of our fellow classmates.

Letter writer got it wrong with his ideas on ‘liberal’ America

There is an old adage that reads "One half the world doesn't understand the other half and it doesn't matter which half you're in." Nowhere, is that truism more obvious than in the campaign battles of an American presidential election.

Political terms misused, altered and lose meaning

Alan Shope in his view, "America, let's embrace our true liberal soul" (Friday) selectively defined the word "liberal" to advance his political view.

Jenkins voted his conscience

The Times on Sunday was a special gift to citizens who try to keep up with actions of elected officials. Please accept my sincere thank you.

Obamacare appeals to socialists

I have just one comment about the article, "Will Obamacare really make health care more affordable?" by Mark Weisbrot (Sunday's Viewpoint): Mr. Weisbrot said it like a true socialist.

Adding to wish list for candidates in 2012 elections

In response to George Koesters' wish list letter in The Times Dec. 22, I have compiled a list of potential qualities that I would like a candidate to possess before and after the election. These might seem very cliche because rarely will any candidate before their election speak about doing these things, or continue to do them after their election. Perhaps 1 in 1,000 elected officials might do these things.

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."
