Sacrifice is the price we must pay for freedom

What makes me shake my head about Republicans and tea party members is that they are self-centered and only think about their wallets while hiding behind the flag and proclaim liberty and freedom.

Nice to see Times continue a welcome Fourth of July tradition

Surely more than a few readers of The Times settled in with their paper on the morning of the Fourth and savored, along with their coffee, the reason for the holiday and some of America's best civic poetry: Mr. Jefferson's draft of the Declaration of Independence, as edited and approved by friends, colleagues and political leaders, in General Congress Assembled. And reprinted on The Times editorial page.

If illegal immigrants don’t like our laws, they are free to leave

To all you illegal immigrants, don't threaten us to leave if you don't get what you want: Just go. We won't stop you. Then maybe legal people can get their jobs back and be able to keep their homes, cars and keep food on the table.

Do teachers want illegal students to save their jobs?

You want your cake and eat it, too, as my mom use to say. Brandon Givens' views on immigration reform (July 1) leave out a few key points.

Global warming fears are just another way to control people

This is in response to a recent article by Joan King. In it, she sounded so exasperated, feeling like she'd written everything and all she could concerning global warming and yet some of us skeptics still don't get it. She talks of a consensus of scientists who are all on board with this theory. She also stated they had come to an agreement it is caused by man-made carbon emissions.

Stop criminals from crossing our borders

On July 1, The Times had a piece on Georgia House Bill 87. On July 3, there was another article declaring HB 87 as un-Christian.

History shows discrimination is just wrong

I appreciated the article in the July 3 editon of The Times, "Christian leaders struggle with immigration law." I noted that one of the persons you quoted said, "Laws are important."

Political correctness forces Southern traditions to sidelines

Have you heard what Bill O'Reily said on Fox News recently? A school in New York City can't mention religion, so the children are singing "When the ants go marching in."

Price of more than gas has skyrocketed

I noticed an item in the paper recently that caught my attention. It stated that Social Security was projecting a cost-of-living adjustment of 0.9 percent for this year. This, after figuring that the cost of living had not gone up at all the last two years. Talk about adding insult to injury.

Marriage is a sacrament that should be between man, woman

It is difficult for me to understand Cokie Roberts' explanations and justifications for her opinions of homosexual acceptance.

Residents deserve to know how Hall commissioners made cuts

What was the process for deciding "who" and "what" got cut from the recently approved Hall County budget?

We need to elect people who believe in fiscal responsibility

I have seen a couple of articles where Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., has referred to tea party people as extremist. He is the third-leading Democratic senator and has held his office for about 12 years. Currently we have a financial crisis, an immigration crisis, Social Security is going broke, Medicare is going broke, our energy policy is a disaster, food prices are terrible, etc. Most of our congressmen have been there over 10 years and are doing a terrible job.

Commissioners’ actions made Hall County weak

One Hall County commissioner has indicated to me that he plans to "modify the tax bill to allow for people to donate to the programs that were cut." Here is my reaction to that commissioner's statement:

New leaders are needed in Hall, city governments

The financial health and well-being of this county and the city of Gainesville will get no better until new people step forward to run for the Hall County Board of Commissioners and the Gainesville City Council.

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.
