Your Views: US leaders need to accept their responsibility

It seems to me that everyone has taken their eye off the ball, to use a favorite phrase of President Barack Obama's. In the alleged "phony scandal" over Benghazi, the issue is not really whether or not a rescue team could have reached the embassy in time.

Your Views: There still are good people around

It is good to know there are still good and honest people around. When my husband got off work last Thursday at midnight, he stopped by the Wal-Mart in Oakwood to pick up milk. Being tired, he left his wallet behind. He didn't notice until he woke up on Friday that it was missing.

Your Views: Wishing for the good old days

The America I knew - I wish I could snap my fingers and bring it back. If I could, I would put God back in our schools. I would give parents back the right to pop their kids' backsides if they got out of line. Policemen and policewomen would go back to remembering taxpayers pay their salary and would not have the right to holler "police!" after they have knocked your door down.

Your Views: We are losing the America we once knew

Are we losing the America we had revered since childhood? The America we served, fought for, and so many died for?

Your Views: Food stamps often are abused

I would like to respond to Barbara Butler's letter on Monday regarding the cutting of food stamps. It is a shame that a veteran that has served this once (and hopefully can be again) great nation such as yourself can only receive $16 per month.

Your Views: Government and business interests aligned against us

In his July 12 letter, Steven Salamon spoke about the need to have a national conversation regarding appropriate limits to government intrusion into the privacy of citizens and their communications. More than once, Mr. Salamon seemed to suggest it was no big deal.

Your Views: Food stamps needed to survive

Cuts in the food stamp program? l get $16 a month; l am a senior and a veteran. Sorry, no more children for me. Congress should spend a day in our shoes. They, too, will be seniors one day.

Your Views: Middle class will grow only when spending, taxes shrink

President Barack Obama continues to emphasize growing the economy from the middle class out. The phrase itself is merely a campaign slogan and not a plan for economic growth. It demonstrates his total lack of life experience outside of politics.

Your Views: Be proactive vs. post-active in teaching children our virtues

The home is the most important institution in any civilization in the world. These are the things that it offers: training in the humanities, courtesy, politeness, refinement of thoughts, manners, and taste.

Your Views: Ga. Power charges more now to avoid more interest later

I write in response to the opinion piece of July 23 by Joan King which attempted (and failed, I think) to tie the enabling of addictive behavior to the Georgia power nuclear power initiative underway with expansion of Plant Vogtle. Talk about obtuse thinking! If there is addictive behavior here, it is Ms. King's Quixotic joist with the nuclear issue she has pursued for years.

Your Views: Citizens ready to unite behind loss of liberty

As I write this letter, I am reminded of the Jerry Reed song, "When You're Right, You're Right." Let me explain.

Your Views: Liabiity for gun owners another way to undermine self-defense

Legislation is pending that would require legal gun owners to purchase liability insurance or give up our guns. This legislation has nothing to do with insurance or liability Its sole purpose is to use the insurance companies to make easily available to the federal government a complete list of the names and addresses of every law-abiding gun owner in the country.

Your Views: More foster homes needed in Hall County

Hall County is in desperate need of foster homes, because families in crisis need our community support. I see several charitable efforts within our county, but there is one need that I believe is sadly overlooked by many. I am not altogether certain that people even know that we need more foster parents. I am optimistic that once the wonderful faith-based community of Hall County learns about this need, it will rise to the challenge.

Your Views: Poverty, not race, is what breeds crime

There is lot of talk lately about violent crime among young blacks. I keep hearing people say it all comes down to individual choice. Are they suggesting young black men simply make far more bad choices than young white men?

Your Views: Incident with Hall jail escapee raises questions

Let me see if I have this right: An adult male in an orange prison jumpsuit with his hands handcuffed in front and restrained by a waist chain is able to hide in a doorway near the courthouse and nobody noticed him?
