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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Your Views: TV show’s view of Appalachian South is hardly complimentary

While I don't usually read Ronda Rich's columns, I did on Oct. 7. The heading got my attention and I read on. She wrote about the TV series "Justified" and how good it is. While I agree that it's a great show and high on my favorites list, I am puzzled by some things she wrote about the Appalachian South. Not being familiar with her writings, I hope it was done tongue-in-cheek when she wrote, "But here's what 'Justified' does best: It gets the Appalachian South right without reducing us to mockery or ridicule."

Your Views: Hall school board needs to be aware of immunization dangers

To Hall County Board of Education: I am sure that you have been made aware by now of the recent announcement by Dr. William Thompson, formerly of the Centers for Disease Control and co-author of the study on immunizations and their link to autism. If you have not, what has come to light is that Dr. Thompson has publicly declared that the study and its findings were falsified. He has declared that the data was altered to make it appear as if there was no link.
