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.

Pearce family is grateful to Hall deputies and responders

My name is Charlie Pearce, retired Navy captain and husband of 43 years to my wife, Gretchan Pearce. I served a little over 27 years in the U.S. Navy and had some combat experience in-country during Vietnam (1966-67) and again in Vietnam during 1972. I retired from the Navy in 1992 and worked in the private sector until 2002.

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.

Your Views: Mule Camp Market festival was a big success

A huge thank you should go to the Gainesville Jaycees. They did a fantastic job with the Mule Camp Market festival last weekend in Gainesville.
