Your Views: Focus on social issues won’t fix economic woes

Like many Americans who wanted change in 2008, I and many others wanted change in 2012. It is obvious now that we will not receive that change.

Your Views: ‘Be the people’ letter inspires

Thank you, Candice Pinzon, so very much for your words of wisdom on the Nov. 9 Opinion page. If everyone would "be the people" as you suggest, this world would be a better place to live for all of "U.S." (United States, especially).

Your Views: Vietnam Wall memorial is a moving tribute

I went off to Washington to see all the sights I could see. I didn't plan to stay long; I didn't know how long I would be. I got a ride with a guide. He said he could show me all the sites, and for $30, I felt that was about right.

Your Views: If Obama leads nation to pray, then re-election will be worth it

Nov. 6 has come and gone, and President Barack Obama has been re-elected for the next four years. And yet I see no singing or dancing in the streets. For the most part, it appears that the anticipated joy and happiness that was suppose to result in his re-election has been replaced by grievous disappointment and gloom and doom rhetoric.

Since the Nov. 6 election, I've heard lots of conservatives throwing tantrums and behaving like spoiled children.

Your Views: Obama voters, don’t cry when your jobs go overseas

Four more years of the same old, same old, except you will see rising taxes, gas prices, food prices and consumer goods prices. There is no sense in stressing out over this debacle since the majority must like socialism and a welfare state like the Soviet Union.

Your Views: With election over, leaders must unite for common good

President Barack Obama was re-elected and would hope that our national, state and local elected leaders would accept this historic fact as a second opportunity to help bring our country together and work for the common good of all of the American people.

Your Views: Better nutrition for children now means a healthier military later

As we remember the many sacrifices of our military this Veterans Day, we should also consider the upcoming generation and what our nation can do to help ensure our long-term national security.

Your Views: Americans, it's time to unite and ‘be the people’ again

Recently, I was at the National Archives and saw the hand-printed documents our country was founded upon. I cannot describe to you the emotion, the sense of honor and respect, the call to duty that seeing those frail papers firsthand produces in each and every heart.

Your Views: US will go the way of Rome

America has become Rome, and there is no doubt that we will suffer the same fate.

Your Views: Our nation has lost its way

Today, America is a lost nation. Lost by its own will, lost by turning its back on God, lost in itself.

Your Views: Free markets don’t provide best health care

While the middle-class economy, Social Security, the environment and various other justice issues are of grave concern, the primary issue for me in this election was health care.

Your Views: Fire insurance cost rises without new Hall station

I received a letter from my insurance company today; they are canceling my homeowners policy, and before you jump to conclusions, I pay my premiums on time. No, this has to do with a fire rating in my area.

Your Views: King’s legacy still guides us 50 years later, but there is more work to do

As the French are fond of saying, The more things change, the more they stay the same. This year's 30th anniversary of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. national observance is a good time to assess his legacy and progress (or lack thereof) toward his goals and aspirations for America. That legacy is rather mixed.

Your Views: Hope and death are intertwined, all part of the mystery of life

Every time I speak at a funeral or visit someone in the hospital, I'm reminded how painful life is. I've spent countless hours with people who have lost loved ones, and with people who are dying. As you age, you begin to lose loved ones to heart disease, cancer and dementia.

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.
