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.

Letter distorts how Christians should treat the poor

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.

Why was extra job title piled on to Hall’s public safety director?

Recently, the news from the Hall County Board of Commissioners has been interesting.

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.

Time to change the status quo in local politics

Why the good guy never wins in politics. It's a narrative that we see over and over again every election cycle.

‘Fair share’ from wealthy is ideal if you pay nothing

To the gentleman who thinks Republicans and tea party members don't pay their fair share of taxes, I ask: What is my "fair share?"

Letter only touched the surface on Obama’s anti-gun policy

In response to Dr. Tom Smiley's letter about President Barack Obama and guns, I have to make a few comments.

Democratic leaders fail to do their jobs

Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a budget for FY 2012 called "Cut, Cap, and Balance." The U.S. Senate would be expected to offer it's version of a 2012 budget. Next a committee would be formed to hammer out a budget acceptable to both houses and the president. That's the way the American people expect government to be managed.

'Gangs’ and ‘czars’ rule the roost

Apparently there are far too many Americans who are unaware of the suffering of millions of people around the world who have been ruled by czars and gangs.

Look for Obama to take on gun control if he wins second term

Believing that something won't happen, doesn't mean it won't. Many people think that despite the many negative factors that exist, President Barack Obama will barely cross the next presidential election finish line as victor.

People support government, not vice versa

I would like to know what planet Carole Scandrol lives on or at the least, what flavor Kool-Aid she's drinking. Sure the government can operate like an individual or business. No entity can operate spending more money than it brings in for an extended period of time. It boils down to government getting back to taking care of what it's supposed to and eliminating all the extras.

Your Views: Prayers’ foes spark outrage, then a blessing

The flak over folks praying at Chestatee High School is one of those good news/bad news situations.

Your Views: Environmental groups trump up fears over energy

Was Bruce Vandiver's letter last week in The Times a scare tactic? I don't know. I do know that environmentalists often employ such tactics.

Your Views: Humanists have no place telling us who can pray

To Monica Miller of the American Humanist Association: As a resident of Hall County let me say that I am deeply offended by your organization's threat of legal action against Chestatee High School.

Your Views: Schools were safer when prayer was still allowed in classrooms

When I was a boy in my lower grades at Candler Elementary School on Candler Road, we said our blessing before leaving our classroom going to lunch. Every so often, these people would come to the school in the lunchroom, and Bible verses we learned we would be able to say and be rewarded with a book marker or sometimes a little Bible testament.

Your Views: Politics is still main obstacle to nuclear energy

What do we do about nuclear waste? Actually the answer is quite simple. The problem we most often run into with the high-grade questions, is political.

Your Views: Mexico should not apply a double standard on its borders

I read in your paper about the crisis on our border with Mexico. It is clear Mexico looks the other way when immigrants cross its southern border and enter the United States. I lived in south Texas for 20 years and their security is a joke. They are the most corrupt in the world.

Your Views: Humanist group’s threat over prayer is just a publicity stunt

Well, what do you know. It appears we have some more Madalyn Murray O'Hair wannabes. The American Humanist Organization of Washington, D.C., has threatened legal action against Chestatee High School to prevent high school coaches from leading and participating in prayer with the players.

Your Views: Visit to VA clinic was a positive experience

My annual visit to the VA facility in Lawrenceville prompted me to write this note about my treatment. This visit was the most professionally handled than I have ever received at a medical facility. My appointment time was right on the mark.

Your Views: We can’t allow spent nukes to be a new Chernobyl

In response to Rick Frommer's letter blaming South Carolina Democrats for failure of a private nuclear waste recycling venture at the U.S. Department of Energy's Savannah River site, I don't think it matters which party controlled the state.

Your Views: Private efforts to ‘clean up’ spent nukes rejected

To add some background to the letter published Wednesday from Bobby R. Stone in Alto: About 1969, three of the biggest energy companies in the world, Allied Chemical Co., Gulf Oil Co., Royal Dutch (Oil Co.) and Shell Oil Co. formed a partnership called Allied Gulf Royal Dutch Shell. The purpose of this company was to build a nuclear recycling plant on private land near the Savannah River Site in Barnwell County, as mentioned by Mr. Stone.

Your Views: What do we do about nuclear waste? Solution isn’t easy to find

I have read some interesting discussions recently, pros and cons of nuclear energy. I leaned "pro" all my working life, but after retiring and thinking it through, I am not sure anymore. I am going to introduce an aspect that I have not seen in other discussions. I speak from the position of a trained radiation worker with more than 30 years of experience. I am writing about "nuclear waste," a sanitized term the industry uses to refer to radioactive poisons and toxins.
