Your Views: Time to hold our leaders responsible for DC gridlock

Are you tired of the fiscal cliff discussions? What are we the taxpayers paying for anyway?

Your Views: Banning firearms is the act of a tyrannical government

It mystifies me to no end to how blind and naive people in general and our leaders in Washington, in particular, can be on some issues. Take for example the supposed ban on small arms in America that so many want to impose on the American people.

Your Views: Guns aren’t the issue; shunning our religion is

I attended a public high school where students brought guns and ammunition to school and shot recreationally in the schools manual arts building over the noon hour and after classes were dismissed.

Your Views: Violent incident in Connecticut raises many vital questions

Having read and listened to lots of commentary this past weekend, our response to this tragic event should probably be a complicated "all of the above."

Your Views: President Obama should support lives of all innocent children

I read the full text of President Barack Obama's address at the vigil for Sandy Hook shooting victims, the little children and the teachers in Newtown, Conn. The speech was beautifully written and I'm sure heartfelt by the president who delivered it and brought comfort to all of us who have been affected by this.

Your Views: Finding scapegoats doesn’t change our political reality

On reading the Dec. 7 letter from Sharon Fowler, I see that recrimination and political hit pieces keep on coming from the angry right. The context of Fowler's letter seems to infer that people wanting free money and government handouts are the reason President Barack Obama was re-elected.

Your Views: There’s no longer a difference between the 2 political parties

What choice does a conservative Georgian have when it comes to representation in government? It seems that the two people that we elect as U.S. senators every six years to represent us at the federal level do nothing but enjoy their membership in the most exclusive social club on the planet.

Your Views: Congress should act quickly to save middle-class tax cuts

Taxes are going to rise on middle-class families in just a few weeks if Congress fails to act. Both Republicans and Democrats agree that taxes should remain low for 98 percent of all Americans, but Congress is refusing to pass this into law. Why? Because they are trying to extract continued tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires.

Your views: Food stamps not given has little to do with Obama

I applied for food stamps more than a year ago with the local office. The request was for one person, myself. I revealed that I did have a roommate but that person did not share meals with me. My request for assistance for two people was denied. Duh! Nowhere did I ask for help for two.

Your Views: There’s no excuse not to prepare for natural disasters

After Sept. 11 and Hurricane Katrina, we have believed that every major city, every state and the federal government has a disaster relief plan in place to respond to emergencies that we have come to anticipate.

Your Views: Obesity plagues poor because healthier food is more costly

Clearly Sharon Fowler is unaware of the cause of obesity among the poor in our society. In many of the "poor" communities, grocery stores are not available, and fresh produce is nonexistent. Instead, calorie-laden food is available at a low cost.

Your Views: Commissioners ignored residents with landfill vote

The vision of Hall County promises that its residents will reside in "a model community that promotes sustainable quality of life by partnering with citizens and businesses to make a community of choice for living, working and leisure."

Your Views: Line for heating bill help was revealing

If you watched television news Tuesday morning, you would understand why President Barack Obama was re-elected. The line for free money to pay heating bills was at least a double block long.

Your Views: Hateful letter was contrary to Christianity

I am an avid reader of The Times and usually enjoy reading it daily. However, I am appalled at the letter published Saturday, written by Lamar Wilbanks. He professes to be such a devout Christian and yet had written such hateful, toxic bigotry, which is totally counter to the teachings of Jesus.

Your Views: TV show’s view of Appalachian South is hardly complimentary

While I don't usually read Ronda Rich's columns, I did on Oct. 7. The heading got my attention and I read on. She wrote about the TV series "Justified" and how good it is. While I agree that it's a great show and high on my favorites list, I am puzzled by some things she wrote about the Appalachian South. Not being familiar with her writings, I hope it was done tongue-in-cheek when she wrote, "But here's what 'Justified' does best: It gets the Appalachian South right without reducing us to mockery or ridicule."

Your Views: Hall school board needs to be aware of immunization dangers

To Hall County Board of Education: I am sure that you have been made aware by now of the recent announcement by Dr. William Thompson, formerly of the Centers for Disease Control and co-author of the study on immunizations and their link to autism. If you have not, what has come to light is that Dr. Thompson has publicly declared that the study and its findings were falsified. He has declared that the data was altered to make it appear as if there was no link.
