Your Views: Are we really that concerned about privacy anymore?

Right now we have a golden opportunity that we are rarely afforded by our gridlocked political system: A true, full, broad and deep national debate on what we want as far as a balance of security, privacy and convenience.

Your Views: Progress leads to pain for residents along Friendship

It has been a while since my emotions have been so stirred up I felt the need to write a letter. I get a sick feeling in my stomach the first five minutes of my morning commute and the last five minutes of my afternoon commute home. It's like the feeling I get when I drive through an area that has been swept by a tornado. In fact, for a while what I was seeing reminded me of just that. What I have been seeing is not an act of God but premeditated destruction, plain and simple. Homes and ...

Your Views: Domestic spying shows Obama has brought no change

In his recent column on NSA leaker Ed Snowden, Jonah Goldberg called him a fool for the love of an idea. I wonder what idea Goldberg intended? Could it be the idea that our government should be true to the wishes of the electorate? Surely that's a foolish thought, right? Only fools would think their vote matters, and only fools would believe the constitutional will of the majority should be a binding command on the government.

Your Views: Collins did not include public input in Camp Merrill decision

U.S. Rep. Doug Collins of the 9th District has explained his rationale for transferring Camp Merrill to the Army. But he does not explain why he thinks that this issue does not deserve proper public notice and review. He is violating the basic democratic principles he was elected to uphold.

Your Views: Americans must celebrate freedom with moral truths

True patriotism is a Christian virtue, a Christian principle. It involves a devoted love, support and defense of one's country. It is a national loyalty.

Your Views: Limited library hours a hassle

I went to the library today and found it did not open until noon. I waited over an hour for it to open; when it did, there was a long line of people waiting to get in. In the parking lot were several cars of employees working.

Your Views: Friendship Road change loses a vote

It has been a while since the Friendship Road name change was voted on and passed. I, for one, was very disappointed in Billy Powell's vote for this change.

Your Views: Shooting geese not the answer

Shame on Chestatee Golf Club and course superintendent Andrew Maronge for the decision to execute the resident geese rather than share the grass and put up with a little brown turf!

Your Views: One page for immigration bill is plenty

The comprehensive new immigration bill needs to be ONE page, not 800 or 1,000 or 1,200 pages of graft, pork, union payoffs and big government made bigger. It should be ONE page with ONE sentence: Enforce all immigration laws already enacted by the U.S. Congress.

Your Views: Increased costs for higher education bankrupt future

On July 1, interest rates for direct subsidized federal loans for college students (currently at 3.4 percent) are set to double to 6.8 percent if Congress neglects to act. As expected, there is political gridlock between the parties. While both openly do not want the interest rate hike to occur, they disagree over the approach to prevent it. Democrats want to keep the rate at 3.4 percent while Republicans want to tie it to Treasury bonds that would change the rate every year but also cap it at 8.5 percent.

Your Views: Don’t trash your home with TV

Turn off your TV. You have the power to remotely control television programming. You have the power to upgrade the quality of the television industry. Advertisers are not going to pay for darkened TV screens.
