Your Views: Churches should do their part to provide company to elderly

While it was wonderful to read in this week's Times that Meals On Wheels has caught up with its waiting list, part of the story saddened me. When I read that "for people like (the widower featured in the story), the brief visit and chat may be the only human interaction he has in a day," I couldn't help but wonder: Where are the churches?

Your Views: Right to bear arms meant for people, not state

Jim Scharnagel's March 20 letter on the Second Amendment is a typical interpretation of that document by current liberal dogma. His final statement is a fair summation of his feelings. "While acknowledging that firearms such as sporting rifles and shotguns for hunting, and within reason, certain weapons for self-protection should be allowed, such rights were not addressed by the Second Amendment but rather a right to keep and bear arms for security of the state."

Your Views: Scientific data back the idea that humans cause climate change

I am both insulted and amused by my inclusion in the "vacuous political and pseudo-science class" and, regretfully, I have not participated in colloquiums sponsored by MENSA, a vacuous pseudo-science class if ever there was one. However, the scientific debate over global warming should not be trivialized and the gross misstatements printed need to be corrected.

Your Views: 2nd Amendment aims to protect us from government

In his letter "Second Amendment was meant for militias, not armed civilians," Jim Scharnagel makes the case that the Second Amendment was never intended to allow private ownership of firearms. While I agree with some of his points, the overarching theme is not one of them.

Your Views: Falcons stadium plan could lead to legalized gambling in future

The hasty rush to approval for a new Falcons stadium in Atlanta has both a bad odor and a hidden agenda.

Your Views: Majority of scientists believe global warming is genuine

Jim Gorman claimed, in a March 19 letter in The Times, that he has researched climate change and written articles on the subject. His conclusion: "There is not one shred of genuine scientific data that proves the theory of global warming. Nor is there consensus in the scientific community."

Your Views: Gun laws can’t protect us from insane killers

This is in response to Jim Scharnagel's letter from March 20 about the Second Amendment being meant for militias and not armed civilians.

Your Views: Second Amendment was meant for militias, not armed civilians

The National Rifle Association falls back on the Second Amendment as justification for owning firearms. This is an anachronism that has persisted from the framing of the Constitution up through the present.

Your Views: Biggest danger from high CO2 levels is political

I am so tired of my intelligence being insulted by the vacuous political and pseudo-science class. For the claims of the global warming cabal to be true, thinking people must put aside all common sense. The premise of the global warming theory is that carbon dioxide is a dangerous gas.

Your Views: Drivers, please stop, use your turn signals at busy crossroads

What is wrong with some drivers? They don't use turn signals or stop at stop signs. Where do they think they are, the land of Dr. Seuss?

Your Views: Dishonoring military, faith, traditions will haunt our nation

I come from a generation that remembers an America where family was the basis for the training of the minds and hearts of our children. I remember an America that believed in the validity of an almighty God that oversees the affairs of men.

Your Views: Tourism industry can get creative to offset extra fee

I am a little disappointed in the article titled "New fee upsets tourism industry." The article itself was well written and worthy of the front page. However, the content of those interviewed and their titles was a little disturbing.

Your Views: Obama’s push for tyranny is a right-wing plan

Regarding Thomas Day's recent letter, I wonder if he expects readers to buy what he's selling. Day speaks of tyranny, saying President Barack Obama has "come closer to establishing tyranny in the United States than at any other time in our history."

Your Views: Addictive behavior can be turned into community service

Your Views: Smithgall’s support for the arts sets our community apart

Gainesville-Hall County, with the Northeast Georgia Medical System, is one of Georgia's prominent medical centers. With Lake Lanier, it is one of Georgia's prominent recreation hubs. With the poultry research laboratory and a high number of poultry industry businesses, it is one of the state's agricultural centers. With the changing seasons in the Gainesville section of the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, the area will become a prominent center for celebrating spring, summer, fall and even winter.

Your Views: US government is held hostage by a tyranny of the minority

The recent celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Selma march was a wonderful event to remind us of the progress that has been made since that event. One unfortunate event was Jesse Jackson's comments decrying the tyranny of the majority over the minority. It is clear by his remarks that he neither understands the meaning of tyranny nor does he understand our form of government.

Your Views: Who’s going to fly our plane? Rice would be the ideal pilot

I know the souls of those who went down in the plane in France are in heaven, with the exception of one. Folks, we are also on the next plane heading the same way, only we have one thing in our favor: The door to the control cabin is open and desperately in need of a pilot.

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.
