This letter is in response to a letter Thursday by Jane Browder. The context of the article was of her demonization of labor unions. It is very obvious Ms. Browder knows absolutely nothing about the inner workings of labor unions or the obvious reasons for their existence.
In response to the recent letter to the editor regarding our proposal to raise the level of Lake Lanier by 2 feet, I would like to give additional information on this proposal.
I was appalled at the article in Wednesday's Times, "Republican Party Rejects Member."

This is in response to Nathan Deal's pre-kindergarten cuts, about cutting pre-K two hours a day and the comment about paying for them to sleep. In private centers, pre-K teachers work exceptionally hard. Nap time is often used for teachers for planning time.

I just recently did an Internet search and found 38 assorted photos of Ku Klux Klan activities. In these 38 photos, there are displayed 55 U.S. flags, eight Confederate flags and one sign which says "Our Flag The Stars and Stripes Forever."

An article by the president of Georgia River Network, "Reservoirs an Unnecessary Expense," details how unnecessary and useless the Hall County reservoirs are. With our county in debt already, this just seems like a very wrong idea at the wrong time.
This letter is to pose a question to anyone who votes for Democratic candidates: If you knew of a drug addicted parent who took money from their parents to buy drugs and took the earnings of their children to buy drugs, would you think that the moral or ethical thing to do? Wouldn't you rather see these parents placed in a drug rehab program that would teach them behavior modification techniques?
Unions are fighting for more control over Jane and Joe Taxpayer's checkbook on the state and federal level while still strangling private sector companies with their financially unrealistic demands. That makes goods and services cost more, or you're out of a job since the business goes bankrupt.
Unbelievable; we now have two out of five county commissioners' filing bankruptcy, and yet they feel they have the ability to handle the fiscal budget of our county. Go figure.
