Letter: Elections, legislative process are steered by media corporations

If you have watched the news in the last year, much has been said by commentators on the subject of media bias. In this case, bias means to control the beliefs of the people to drive their actions. The media has become a propaganda machine for an agenda many know little about.

Editorial: Hall residents feel the drill of tax increase

Tax increases are a bit like having a root canal at the dentist. Sometimes they're necessary, though always painful. And if the dentist doesn't work carefully, the agony is even greater.

Editorial: Congressional elections become menu-driven politics

North Georgians were so inundated with ads about the special 6th District House race in metro Atlanta that a number of people in Hall County even tried to vote, apparently thinking such a high-profile race must be for statewide office.

Letter: Supreme Court’s hate speech ruling goes against idea in Constitution

In The Times on Thursday's page 2A, a Today in History item read "In 1992, the U. S. Supreme Court, ruled unanimously that 'hate crime laws' that banned cross burnings and similar expressions of racial bias violated free speech rights."

Letter: Grizzard and other writers were Southern voices who are missed

I recently read Ronda Rich's column about Lewis Grizzard which I enjoyed very much. It seems every time I have lunch at the Collegiate Grill, we sit in the booth under his picture. I miss his columns and those of Celestine Sibley.

Letter: Shooter wasn’t really ‘evil,’ just targeting who he saw as an enemy

On Thursday, The Times featured on the front page a comment by Rep. Doug Collins. In response to the shooting of his colleague Steve Scalise, he said, "I don't know any specifics on what drove this person to do this ... All I do know is that it's not normal; it's not rational. It's just pure evil."

Letter: Will US be left behind in climate efforts?

Earlier this month, President Donald Trump announced his intention to withdraw from the Paris agreement on climate change. While his action may score political points with the shrinking group of people who continue to deny the world is warming in the face of overwhelming evidence, his decision to isolate us from global efforts to slow climate change will harm our nation and our community. We now join only two other countries not joining in the accord.

Letter: Congressional members are elected to represent all constituents

Earlier this week, my representative, Doug Collins, removed my comments - which did not contain any profanity, nor any personal attacks - and blocked me from commenting on posts on his public Facebook profile. A week or two ago, he had created a post declaring we are moving in the right direction when the Democrats show up to protest. He was later confronted about the hyperpartisan statement by a commenter reminding him of his job to represent all citizens of the 9th District, not just the ones supporting a specific policy, and he later changed it.

Editorial: Nation's leaders must stay united against hatred

Wednesday's shooting of a U.S. congressman and others at a baseball practice in suburban Washington should serve as a reminder, if we still need one, that extremism can be found in all types of faces, backgrounds and ideas.

Letter: An old farmer’s lesson about listening still is not forgotten

My unforgettable lesson about listening happened on a very hot August day in south Mississippi, where I was working in a seed, feed and fertilizer warehouse. My co-workers had gone for a lunch break, yet as a 15-year-old I was sure I could take care of customers easily.
