While the shootings in the school in Connecticut were a terrible catastrophe, the liberal news media is silent on the thousands of abortions preformed every year in this country. I guess those babies don't count.
Reading letters on gun control published after the Sandy Hook school shooting, it appears conservatives blame that event on everything but guns. Some insist the Sandy Hook shooting can be attributed directly to legalized abortion, the elimination of prayer in school and teaching the theory of evolution as science. Then they speak out against liberals who would dare exploit this tragedy in order to serve a political agenda. How ironic.
I wasn't going to weigh in on this one, but I can't help myself. There are too many reasonable people who are buying into the liberal lexicon.
I often find myself wondering how the next chapter of our nation's history will read. Will it tell of a prosperous society, where the citizens embraced freedom? Or will it read like the final chapters of Gibbon's "The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire?" I pray the former but am given to the latter at the moment.
How do conservatives get the broadcast media to hold this administration accountable?
I am writing in response to an article in The Times on Sunday, "Feds' immigration program extended," regarding the Obama administration extending the federal 287(g) immigration program. Since the article focused on the opinions and misrepresentations of a local attorney and illegal immigrant advocate, I believe it is important to set the record straight.
I want to communicate my position on expectations of our elected officials' responsibility to defend the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
I found the Jan. 7 article in The Times, "Church commemorates Epiphany" with a blessing of Lake Lanier somewhat interesting. However, in my opinion, attempts to bless Lake Lanier may be misdirected.
Jan. 22 will be the 40th anniversary of Roe v Wade. In this period some 55 million babies have been aborted. Abortion is like an evil, never-receding tsunami that has swept through our land, leaving in its wake enormous dissension and heartache. Unfortunately, in the next four years we will see a ramped-up version of this holocaust.
The senseless, insane killing of 20 innocent children and six adults in Newtown, Conn., is beyond our understanding. It violates every ethical and moral standard that we have held dear. Our hearts and sympathies go out to the victims families and the residents of Newtown.
A terrible and senseless act was committed recently in Connecticut and many young lives were lost as a result. The "knee-jerk" reaction has been that we need to have more gun laws or more strict gun laws. That reaction is completely wrong.
After reading the article in Wednesday's Times, "$1M donations wanted for Obama inauguration," I am appalled and so angry. With our country in tremendous debt, Americans hungry and some homeless and Social Security being threatened, how dare President Barack Obama ask for $1 million to have parties? Why spend all this money on some parties?
Vice President Joe Biden promises gun laws to change. Whether your for it or against it, you can be sure of two things.
Thank you, city of Gainesville. On the evening of Jan. 5, I received a home security call. I got home with two city police cars and a fire truck from Station 1. The police came to check on the motion alarm in my house, and when walking outside my home, they smelled gas.
On behalf of the entire Gainesville City Schools family, we thank the Gainesville and Hall County community for the remarkable support we received during our successful quest for the state Class AAAAA football championship. We congratulate Coach Bruce Miller, his coaching staff and the team on the hard work and determination that resulted in our bringing home the championship to Gainesville.
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.
