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.

Obamacare appeals to socialists

I have just one comment about the article, "Will Obamacare really make health care more affordable?" by Mark Weisbrot (Sunday's Viewpoint): Mr. Weisbrot said it like a true socialist.

Adding to wish list for candidates in 2012 elections

In response to George Koesters' wish list letter in The Times Dec. 22, I have compiled a list of potential qualities that I would like a candidate to possess before and after the election. These might seem very cliche because rarely will any candidate before their election speak about doing these things, or continue to do them after their election. Perhaps 1 in 1,000 elected officials might do these things.

Americans, let’s embrace our true liberal soul

The word liberal is a nasty word for many people, especially in the South. That's unfortunate because no other word expresses the soul of America as well as the word liberal, which basically means free and generous.

From the Statewide Strategic Transportation Plan 2010-2030, page 6: "People mobility in rural areas and medium-sized cities is well supported by the current network."

Feds provide for immigrant farm labor within law

The visa that is available and has been for decades is the H2A. There is no limit to the number of agricultural workers that can be brought in under it. The only physical limitations under this program are the number that can be properly housed by the applicant.

Americans have turned away from their moral foundation

I am deeply concerned about the direction our nation is going and the sad state of affairs we find ourselves in. As a Christian, I feel that most of the woes we face are due to the fact that we as Americans have abandoned the faith of our forefathers in a belief in divine providence.

The Georgia agricultural industry has suffered tremendously since HB 87 was passed.

Christmas Day page appreciated

We just wanted to thank the editors and all the staff at The Times for having the courage and commitment to print the verse and headlines on the Christmas Day issue. It was such a blessing to open the paper and see the headlines, the verse and beautiful depiction of the true meaning of Christmas!

Ag industry shuns guest worker plan for cheaper labor

Tom Crawford's recent rehash of the self-inflicted wounds suffered by Georgia's agriculture industry conveniently omitted an important fact.

Special sales taxes won’t end until we vote 'no'

SPLOSTs, SPLOSTs and more SPLOSTs, revenue generators beloved of politicians and their will accomplices, Chambers of Commerce.

Lake hazards are a bigger concern than burning

Instead of the Corps of Engineers' new "prescribed burning" program at Lake Lanier, I wish they would fund the removal of boating hazards such as trees and stumps that are just under the surface at full pool.

My wish list for a true leader as next president

Irony plays a strange role. This appeared in The Times horoscope section: "For every piece of advice there is another pointing in the opposite direction." Also, "you'll be given a lot of raw ingredients and not too much as to how to put it all together."

Your Views: Let’s remember joys of Christmas past, not just gifts

It's Christmas. It's the end of the year. That time of year where everyone is enjoying the holiday festivities and winding down from their busy lives. It's a time for joy, for peace, for happiness, for forgiveness and for kindness.

Your Views: Nation is in decline as it turns away from our Christian values

Well, it's almost Christmas again and it's supposed to be a happy time of year. It's meant to be a time to focus on the one it's really all about, our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ.

Your Views: Learn more about life by escaping comfort zone of your small town

Life in a small town is great for a while. Many of us grow up in the comfort of a small town where we all gather on Friday nights to cheer on the local football team and go to church on Sunday mornings.

Your Views: Lula Christmas parade was topped by a glorious full moon

In spite of rain and clouds on a recent Saturday, our city of Lula, as well as other towns in the area, was busy preparing annual Christmas celebration festivities on Dec. 6. Our mayor and council had voted to purchase new (and much needed) Christmas lights and decorations for the town.

Your Views: Shoppers, please mind your manners and think of others

OK, this is crazy. It's Christmas shopping time and no one cares who they run over with their carts! My mother is 95 years old and when a female heard the words, "I can take someone over here," this person was like a race horse and bumped my mother's cart. But at least she got to be first in line!

On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to offer condolences to the family, colleagues and many friends of Attorney Joe B. Sartain Jr. of Gainesville on his recent passing.

Your Views: Schools can’t let atheist groups run our lives

On Wednesday, I read about the humanist group suing Hall County Schools over prayers. The complainants were listed as Jane Doe, Jane Roe and Jane Coe due to the fact identification posed a risk.

Your Views: Our nation always has been based on Christian ideals

Wednesday, I read in the paper that this group called the humanists have filed a lawsuit against the Hall County School District for promoting prayer and Christianity.

Your Views: If prayers are removed from schools, it should apply to Islam

I tend to agree with the humanist group to remove prayer in school. Likewise, then schools will be compelled to remove all the Five Pillars of Islam in Common Core.

Your Views: The real ‘War on Christmas’ is waged against poor Jesus served

This time of year we begin hearing about the "War on Christmas," as the nonreligious seek to enforce the constitutional separation between church and state. Others talk about a "War on Thanksgiving" as early shopping begins to infringe on family time and Thanksgiving time. But there's another war far more displeasing to God, at least according to Jesus.

Your Views: Area restaurants applauded for providing free meals to veterans

Many thanks should be extended to all the local restaurants who provided free dinners to veterans on Veterans Day. Such a positive, supportive attitude only serves to strengthen the community and the country. A week later, I was impressed to see a restaurant in Buford extend the honor by providing literally hundreds of free dinners to local veterans.
