Obama and Co. are likely to gut defense spending

After the "great compromise," we are led to believe a "red ribbon" supercommittee is going to solve our financial problems by cutting our spending by trillions, a committee composed of 24-karat liberal spenders. This is kind of like hiring Bonnie and Clyde to guard a bank vault.

Jewish prayer shawl was not treated properly at Israel rally

I had the pleasure of attending the outstanding rally to support Israel on Wednesday afternoon in downtown Gainesville. I was surprised by the number and variety of people who came out for this event. The speakers were excellent, and the organizers did a great job.

PSC is watching nuclear plant projects closely

I wanted to respond to Joan King's Tuesday column, "Utility's risk-sharing plan akin to a tax hike on customers." She has omitted several important facts concerning the construction of Georgia Power's new nuclear reactors at Plant Vogtle in Waynesboro.

Political parties agree on 1 thing: Get rid of the tea partyers

Just recently, I attended a local Republican meeting to witness how we get the candidates we get. I witnessed the old guard sneer at any new faces and whisper that "they must be those tea party people." It's then that I began to realize how losing any control of their power is a direct threat, and will not be tolerated from either the Democrats or Republicans.

US spends too much on Israel

According to the Congressional Research Service, the U.S. has provided nearly $3 billion annually to Israel since 1985. Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since the end of World War II.

Rebellious nature doesn’t reflect America’s values

I would like to encourage Americans to stop blaming the president for our financial problems but he alone is not the problem. As a country, America has gotten away from that which it was founded upon and it has opened the door for us to be a rebellious nation in the sight of God.

Young people not as willing to work hard to get ahead

There is still a very high percent of people unemployed. But let's take a much closer look at the situation.

Law keeps Hall residents from working on vehicles

Hall County needs money so it passed a law so they can legally rob money from the poor. They know most of us have old classic cars we work on to show off and drive. So they drum up this law to take away our rights and rob from us, though we are barely making it.

Education not a top priority in Ga.

Congratulations to Richie Fearn for putting "the real Deal" in perspective. The devil is in the details.

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.

Obama should stop pointing fingers at others

I want to give a shout of amen in response to a recent letter where the writer encourages President Barack Obama to stop blaming President George W. Bush for our problems.

Privatization of county services leads to questions

Here are my concerns about this whole idea of the privatization of Hall County services.

Attacks on tea party unfounded, and debt debate proved it right

Yesterday's television coverage reported a poll showing that 47 percent of those polled were displeased with the tea party. I have to ask why.

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.

Your Views: Parker shows her ignorance about hunting methods

Kathleen Parker, in her Oct. 23 Opinion Page article, demonstrates her complete ignorance of hunting and disdain for hunters in general by quoting or referencing comments from one of the most anti-hunting groups in this country, namely the Humane Society of the United States.

Your Views: Concern about securing border doesn’t have to be about race

I read the article by Ruben Navarrette, "Time to get smart at border (Tuesday)," and would like to help him out since he missed the boat.

Your Views: Dumping unwanted pets in someone’s yard is unforgivable

A "person" who drops a pet on someone else's property is my problem right now. Are they too cheap to feed the animal or too lazy?

Your Views: A blood donation can save as many as 3 lives, is time well spent

My mom always told me I was special, and that there was a plan and purpose for my life. I have spent my entire adult life trying to find out what made me special, and how I could make a difference in this world.

Your Views: Ga. lawmakers overdue to fix roads funding

I am very pleased to see state Sen. Steve Gooch is trying to solve our problem with road funding in Georgia. This should have been addressed years ago but has been allowed to continue to a point of emergency.

Your Views: Madison County’s decision was based on avoiding a losing battle

Perhaps guts had nothing to do with the decision the school board in Madison County made concerning the religious monument on school grounds. Maybe its members chose to not set up their county for a budget-busting legal case that could bankrupt them.

Your Views: Iraq’s problems were caused by Bush's policies, not Obama's

Response to Darrell Newton's letter Friday: Certainly, everyone has the right to say what he thinks, but they really should have the facts before doing so.

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.

Your Views: Trouble brewing when city allows morality to slide

I just want to extend a word of thanks to Gainesville City Councilmen Bob Hamrick and George Wangemann for taking the moral high ground on the brewery issue. Gainesville and Hall County have gotten along just fine for decades without having a brewery. Inevitably, this will bring bars and other establishments that attract unwanted attention in the form of drunkenness and other social maladies that create areas of crime and rude behavior.

Your Views: Madison County school board caves to atheists

Here we go again, folks, just another example of no guts: The school board in Madison County caved to an atheist group over a monument on school grounds that had Bible verses and quotes on it that was paid for by private donations.

Your Views: Vote could make reckless drivers share the cost of spinal injuries

Tens of thousands of Georgians live with life-long disabilities due to brain and spinal cord injury. As medical technology, safety and trauma care have improved, more people survive traumatic injury, but many then face a lifetime of physical, behavioral and cognitive impairments requiring ongoing support services.

Your Views: There’s no good reason for vote for any Democrat in fall election

When you add it all up, the steady stream of lies from the White House, the Democratic party and its supporters, the liberal left media, there is only one answer: There is NO Democratic candidate worthy of even a single vote. In fact, I don't see how a Democrat could vote for himself or herself.

Your Views: Obama’s actions have cost us peace, cost him respect

President Barack Obama withdrew all of our troops both in Iraq and Afghanistan against the recommendation of his own military, the CIA and his own secretary of defense and secretary of State.
