Plan to ruin US goes against our nation’s founders

I have often wondered what it would take to bring this country down short of a military invasion. These are some of the things that came to mind.

Real courage can be found in King’s struggle

In your Jan. 18 edition, Michelle Crawford gives her kudos to Fred Chitwood for his courage in assailing the character of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Beyond labels, both liberal and conservative ideas have their purpose

In response to Alan Shope's "America, let's embrace our true liberal soul (Jan. 6):"

Letter on birthdays correct on how we ignore true heroes

Kudos to Fred Chitwood for having the courage to write about honoring someone of questionable background with a national holiday while virtually ignoring the birthday of a great American military leader. And congratulations to The Times for having the guts to run his letter.

Pay sent home by immigrants is strong, effective foreign aid

It seems to me that the portion of their pay that the Mexican immigrants send home, to their own families, in their own villages, is the best foreign aid program that the United States has. No bureaucrat in D.C. or Mexico City intervenes. Women and children get the money. That is good for everyone.

Columnist’s views are welcomed

Dear Joan King: You have many detractors, but I am certainly not among them. Yours is a voice of reason in an ocean of insanity. While I do not always agree with you, your points are well thought-out and presented. Keep up the good work. We need you.

Celebrations of historic birthdays don’t match up

This month we observe the birthday of two famous American men. Since it is no longer politically correct to study truth in history, it is only fair and honest for someone to make a comparison of the two individuals in question. I will make a description and you decide the identity of these two men.

Choosing our time of exit is selfish, wrong

Joan King's column about the "right to choose one's death" published Tuesday was irresponsible and reckless. To say that I was taken aback and disgusted is a gross understatement. Ms. King writes some outrageous articles, but this one topped them all.

You think bridges rank low? Try more taxes for transit

Has anyone else noticed a proliferation of news stories about Georgia DOT local road programs and about the T-SPLOST vote upcoming, while at the same time the Georgia Newspaper's Partnership Poll (of what citizens want the Georgia General Assembly to work on this year) put the "Roads and Bridges" category at 2 percent preference?

Columnist should learn more about creation at museum

While the Jan. 5 column, "Stuck in the backward land of Absurdia," was very entertaining, I have a couple of questions for Brandon Givens, the columnist:

Jenkins was true to his family, friends, residents in need

My first memory of Ed Jenkins was September 1955, the beginning of our friendship as students at the University of Georgia Law School. I was impressed with his wonderful sense of humor, his down-to-earth personality and we had much in common: Ed a product of the mountains and me, a product of the red clay hills of Madison County and the cotton fields. Neither of us grew up with a silver spoon, as did some of our fellow classmates.

Letter writer got it wrong with his ideas on ‘liberal’ America

There is an old adage that reads "One half the world doesn't understand the other half and it doesn't matter which half you're in." Nowhere, is that truism more obvious than in the campaign battles of an American presidential election.

Political terms misused, altered and lose meaning

Alan Shope in his view, "America, let's embrace our true liberal soul" (Friday) selectively defined the word "liberal" to advance his political view.

Jenkins voted his conscience

The Times on Sunday was a special gift to citizens who try to keep up with actions of elected officials. Please accept my sincere thank you.

Your Views: Lula could use new blood, more reasonable rules

It is my hope that some new blood on the Lula City Council will bring an end to silly regulations like the one requiring a resident to pay a fee and to get the city's approval in order to have a yard sale on his own property. I know that part of the fee is refundable if the yard-saler cleans up his property to an inspector's satisfaction after the sale.

Your Views: Racism is used by Democrats to demonize their political foes

There is hardly a day that goes by when Democrats fail to use the term "racism" in some sort of capacity regarding conservatives. It is the current buzz word that they hope will keep them relevant in upcoming elections since they have very little else to hang their hat on: the train wreck of Obamacare, Benghazi, the IRS scandal, Lois Lerner, endless executive actions without congressional approval, and the list goes on.

Your Views: Patriots to gather May 16 in DC to support constitutional ideals

As Georgia patriots and members of Patriots for America, we are reaching out to all Georgians about the event "Operation American Spring" that is scheduled to begin in Washington on May 16.

Your Views: More guns aren’t a problem if those carrying them are legal

I am a gun owner with a concealed carry permit, and I think if more people had guns and were licensed to carry, we might have a safer city or community. My reason of thinking is if you possess such a permit, then you are less likely to commit a crime because you have paid the money for it and have no record or serious or violent crimes against you. We are basically law-abiding, gun-carrying people who are exercising our Second Amendment rights.

Your Views: Congratulations to attorney Orr on earning prestigious honor

On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I wish to congratulate E. Wycliffe "Wyc" Orr Sr. of Orr & Brown LLP in Gainesville on receiving the 2014 Lifetime Achievement Award presented by the Southern Center for Human Rights.

Your Views: Sprawl lowers costs and raises quality of life

Give me the sprawl. I love it. Hopefully, Hall County municipal fathers will attempt to get sprawl (according to the Hall County sprawl index published in The Times on April 12) down to 50 from its current 103.3.

Your Views: Fort Hood shooting shows why officers should be armed

During the airing of an interview by Bill O'Reilly on Fox News on Thursday, Col. David Hunt mentioned arming the "leadership" when O'Reilly quickly blew off the suggestion. O'Reilly then continued on with leading questions about the tragedy and promoting his own agenda.

Your Views: Crime statistics don’t support tough gun laws

In his Thursday response to Jerry Callahan concerning right-to-carry laws, Michael Parker presented a comparison of Atlanta and Chicago while decrying the availability of guns. I would like to counter his argument with a comparison, albeit brief, of Chicago and Houston.

Your Views: Stats prove it: More guns lead to more crime

Jerry Callahan, in his March 27 letter to The Times, mentions the work of John R. Lott as the final word in guns and crime. Lott's empirical work, on face value, was good. Many social scientists would agree that it stimulated others to examine the subject of right-to-carry laws and any relationship with crime.
