Stossel’s observations on ‘wrongs and rights’ open eyes

I wish to commend The Times for publishing what I am sure to be an unpopular column by John Stossel, "What seems wrong might not be when you look a little closer" (Monday).

Time to take government back from politicians

America is truly heading straight for our next revolution. This revolution will not be one of innovation or industry. Rather, this revolution will come in the form of a people who have finally become fed up with the overreaching of boundaries on all sides by the American government.

Prayer shawl’s incorrect display at rally likely was unintentional

I, too, attended the prayers for Israel and saw the lady wearing the Tallith (prayer shawl) as a sash and was not happy at the sight.

Get ready for a wild West White House if Perry wins election

If Rick Perry is elected president, there will be a new slant to an old game created during the eras of Hoot Gibson, Tom Mix and John Wayne. It will be Perry and his cronies against the rest of us playing cowboys and indigents.

Prayer shawl concern is trivial

In response to Melinda Gottfried's questions about how Christians would feel if "little cups of juice" were served at a Christian event, this Christian wouldn't mind at all. It's a symbolic gesture, and like a man-made fabric shawl, shouldn't be worshipped as anything more.

Low power rates are taken for granted

Re: Joan King's column, "Risk sharing is akin to a tax," in the Aug. 23 Times. This is an attempt to accommodate her two questions: Why aren't people paying more attention to her explanations of how Georgia power is taking advantage of us taxpayers and is she the only one who thinks this is wrong?

Private interests no longer backing nuclear projects

The nuclear elephant in the room is only touched on tangentially in Joan King's Tuesday column and Doug Everett's letter Thursday. That is the fact that the nuclear power industry is beginning to wither and fail because of its prohibitive costs and its demonstrated hazards to the livability of the planet. It is becoming very difficult to find private investors for new construction.

Managing animal waste is a waste of our state tax dollars

I am writing in regards to Michael Wheeler's article Aug. 18, "UGA researches climate change on animal agriculture," adapted from Georgia FACES.

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.

Your Views: UGA football game experience ruined by ear-shattering ‘music’

Before I share my opinion about the University of Georgia's misguided attempt to entertain fans as they enter the stadium, I'll mention my longtime affiliation with UGA, starting with the five years I spent there as a Speech Communication faculty member, after earning my Ph.D. at Ohio University.
