Your Views: Anti-abortion views eventually can lead to unwanted children

Margaret Wolf seems to have put a lot of thinking into why she thinks women should not have abortions (Your Views, Oct. 18).

Your Views: Charter school plan takes action to address school shortcomings

The only thing we know for certain is that K-12 education in America is in deep trouble and dramatic changes are needed. We have spent the last 40 years trying to feel good by deluding ourselves into thinking preschool focus will solve our problems.

Your Views: Charter school decisions should stay at local level

Amendment 1 on the Nov. 6 ballot asks: "Shall the Constitution of Georgia be amended to allow state or local approval of public charter schools upon the request of local communities?"

Your Views: Charter school plan would create dual systems, tap local funding

As we go to the ballot box to elect our federal, state and local leaders, let us not be caught off guard by ballot questions asking us to amend our state constitution. As amendment question No. 1, also referred to as the Charter amendment, relates to public education and funding, I feel it is most important that we understand the question: "Provides for improving student achievement and parental involvement through more charter school options ... Shall the Constitution of Georgia be amended to allow state or local approval of public charter schools upon the request of local communities?"

Your Views: Obama has spent his 4 years on social engineering, not jobs

Twenty-eight pages of foreclosure notices in The Times say to me that our economy is a terribly long way from being in a recovery mode. Each of these notices represents a shattered dream for an American homeowner. I wonder who these people will vote for in November.

Your Views: Election choice should not be about morality

The headline on the column Tuesday by Trevor Thomas states, "Clear moral choice doesn't favor Obama."

Your Views: Exit 24 on I-985 badly needs better design, signs for safety

I am writing to express my dismay over the poor design of the southbound exit at Interstate 985, Exit 24. Cars that try to merge into traffic on Jesse Jewell do not realize until too late that the two exit lanes merge into one before entering the road. This has led to multiple crashes as two cars try to pull into one lane.

Your Views: Anti-abortion GOP platform anything but a war on women

As a woman, I take exception to the idiocy of political arguments that Republicans are waging a war on women or that they were taking a step back in women's rights because they came out with a strong pro-life platform.

Your Views: Biden laughed, sneered and raved for failed leftist ideals

I watch the vice presidential candidates as they debated some of the gravest issue this country and the world has had to face in the last century or perhaps ever.

Your Views: Charter plan could weaken home rule, increase taxes

Much has been written concerning the charter school referendum. There are two very significant reasons why I will vote "no."

Your Views: Both Democrats, US have turned away from God

I've always prided myself as being neutral when it came to voting, but can I say that anymore? It really saddens me, but I don't believe that I can. After watching the Democratic convention, it seems like they have pretty much drawn the line in the sand.

Your Views: Cultural change needed to reform nation’s capital

Washington can only be changed from the inside - a cultural change is needed.

Your Views: Financial picture looking grim for both businesses and US taxpayers

Our biggest threat is probably that our government is not sustainable. We are borrowing 40 percent of expenditures. Democrats claim that the Republicans want to change Social Security and Medicare. President Lyndon Johnson did that when he moved their revenues to the budget. Not changing them now will destroy them; your call.

Your Views: Letter joins chorus of ‘blame US’ over violence in Middle East

It appears that Gibson Mano (Sept. 29 Your Views letter) is a chip off the old Obama block in blaming everything that happens in the world on the United States' actions. His hard and fast assertion that the rioting and killing of our ambassador and staff people in the Middle East was the result of an obscure film that practically no one, even in the U.S., has seen, is the height of gullibility or disdain for his own country (I assume he is an American citizen).

Your Views: Empathy, trust, not blame, are a path to peace

I am writing in response to your editorial ("Freedom under fire," Sept. 16). The current state of affairs in that region demonstrates horribly how cultural values and beliefs can be a disastrous endeavor.

Your Views: Budget policy group has many ideas to boost school funding

Hall County's school superintendent unfairly claimed in an Oct. 21 guest column in The Times that my organization's research lamented the billions in education state budget cuts in recent years without suggesting ways Georgia might reverse the damage the financial squeeze is causing.

Your Views: Water group’s concerns are only about wise policies, not politics

Thank you for your coverage of the Georgia Water Coalition's Dirty Dozen report (Oct. 22). As it has for the past three years, the GWC's Dirty Dozen report details how state water policy is leading to the wasteful use of state funds and complicating the two-decade old water dispute with Florida and Alabama.

Your Views: Parker shows her ignorance about hunting methods

Kathleen Parker, in her Oct. 23 Opinion Page article, demonstrates her complete ignorance of hunting and disdain for hunters in general by quoting or referencing comments from one of the most anti-hunting groups in this country, namely the Humane Society of the United States.

Your Views: Concern about securing border doesn’t have to be about race

I read the article by Ruben Navarrette, "Time to get smart at border (Tuesday)," and would like to help him out since he missed the boat.

Your Views: Dumping unwanted pets in someone’s yard is unforgivable

A "person" who drops a pet on someone else's property is my problem right now. Are they too cheap to feed the animal or too lazy?

Your Views: A blood donation can save as many as 3 lives, is time well spent

My mom always told me I was special, and that there was a plan and purpose for my life. I have spent my entire adult life trying to find out what made me special, and how I could make a difference in this world.

Your Views: Ga. lawmakers overdue to fix roads funding

I am very pleased to see state Sen. Steve Gooch is trying to solve our problem with road funding in Georgia. This should have been addressed years ago but has been allowed to continue to a point of emergency.

Your Views: Madison County’s decision was based on avoiding a losing battle

Perhaps guts had nothing to do with the decision the school board in Madison County made concerning the religious monument on school grounds. Maybe its members chose to not set up their county for a budget-busting legal case that could bankrupt them.

Your Views: Iraq’s problems were caused by Bush's policies, not Obama's

Response to Darrell Newton's letter Friday: Certainly, everyone has the right to say what he thinks, but they really should have the facts before doing so.

Your Views: Series on foster child care opened eyes to a serious issue

On more than one occasion, I have taken pen to paper to offer my criticism of your newspaper. It is expected that we subscribers will do that. When a newspaper does something that I feel is commendable, I will also offer my praise as well as extending my subscription another quarter.

Your Views: Trouble brewing when city allows morality to slide

I just want to extend a word of thanks to Gainesville City Councilmen Bob Hamrick and George Wangemann for taking the moral high ground on the brewery issue. Gainesville and Hall County have gotten along just fine for decades without having a brewery. Inevitably, this will bring bars and other establishments that attract unwanted attention in the form of drunkenness and other social maladies that create areas of crime and rude behavior.

Your Views: Madison County school board caves to atheists

Here we go again, folks, just another example of no guts: The school board in Madison County caved to an atheist group over a monument on school grounds that had Bible verses and quotes on it that was paid for by private donations.

Your Views: Vote could make reckless drivers share the cost of spinal injuries

Tens of thousands of Georgians live with life-long disabilities due to brain and spinal cord injury. As medical technology, safety and trauma care have improved, more people survive traumatic injury, but many then face a lifetime of physical, behavioral and cognitive impairments requiring ongoing support services.

Your Views: There’s no good reason for vote for any Democrat in fall election

When you add it all up, the steady stream of lies from the White House, the Democratic party and its supporters, the liberal left media, there is only one answer: There is NO Democratic candidate worthy of even a single vote. In fact, I don't see how a Democrat could vote for himself or herself.
