Politicians try to get ahead by talking in circles

Are you ready? We are about to be deluged with doublespeak, and I believe the vilest election campaign we have ever witnessed.

Quit blaming Bush for all of Obama’s failures

I am responding to Adele Kushner's typically liberal, "blame Bush" letter on Thursday. While some of her "facts" are correct, some are not.

This letter is in response to William P. Clark's highly offensive "God made the poor that way so we shouldn't do anything to help them" letter ("People of faith shouldn't give in to wealth envy," Friday).

Economy was much stronger, debt lower during Clinton years

If you are old enough to be on Medicare, you should remember the glory days when the U.S. economy was flourishing. The treasury had a positive balance, a comfortable surplus and good times were ahead.

Tenure or no, teachers need to be held fully accountable

How about a hometown view regarding teacher predicaments. After reading the rebuke in The Times (Saturday) for how the current wave of change in public education is affecting teachers, it is obvious the teachers and the two professors who contributed to the article are more concerned about the senior union member teachers and those who have tenure as they obviously do.

People of faith shouldn’t give in to wealth envy

I am writing in reference to Alan Shope's latest politico-religious letter, "Rich politicians, preachers spend too much while others suffer."

Leaders fail us, especially our weak president

I watched the news and read the account of how our Congress has finally agreed on a solution to our national budget and heard our president give his assessment of the whole process to which, of course, he took no active part except to claim all the bows.

Preachers, politicians spend too much while poor suffers

The American middle class is no match for wealthy politicians and wealthy preachers. When it comes to money, they will outsmart and outmaneuver the middle class every time.

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

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.
