Your View: Guest Column - Refuse collection department makes me a man

I would like to thank the City of High Point Refuse Collections for making me realize that I am much more than the man I thought myself to be.

Your View: Legislature is harming people in cities, state

N.C. cities, as we have known them over 50 years, will no longer exist because of the actions of the Legislature over the last three years. The effect won’t be apparent in the next year or two. It’ll happen gradually over the next few decades with serious consequences for the state’s people.

Your View: See for yourself what’s required to buy firearms

We are constantly being told by the media that people favor more gun laws. I suggest asking one of your local gun dealers to let you read the current form 4473 that is required by all legal gun buyers to complete before a purchase.

Your View: ‘Nanny’ state has no business requiring helmets

I’m disappointed in The High Point Enterprise. Last Friday, in the “Our View” column, the Enterprise gave a “Thumbs Down” to the efforts in North Carolina to remove the helmet requirement for riding a motorcycle. Is this not a sad example of how the newspaper industry, even at the local level, has fundamentally changed from being the “watch dog and protector” of citizens rights to supporting BIG “nanny government’s” desire for control over its citizens?

Your View: Here’s what firefighter would get in retirement

While I appreciate Phil Sloan’s article (Guest Column, March 28, “You think government workers have ‘pay equity’?”) and his implication that firefighters and police may be worthy of the benefits he outlined, as a city of High Point firefighter I would like to offer what our true benefits consist of.

Your View: Make no more mistakes about war

November 2012 was very important in American history. People nominated their representatives and president. During the election campaign both parties made promises.

Your View: Guest Column - Controversial Trinity Council members are dedicated to serving city

Trinity is one of the very best places to live.

Your View: Guest Column - The Resurrection: Significant or not?

First, and perhaps most significantly, is the fact that the resurrection is foundational to the Christian faith. If true, then Christianity is, well, true. But if not true, according to Paul, it stands as a horrible and well-played hoax

Your View: He’s wrong. Trinity, Dayton don’t compare

In his March 18  letter (“Why can’t Trinity have growth like this?”) Mike Robertson criticizes the “five controlling members” of Trinity City Council and asserts that they “work their back-room deals.”

Your View: Guest Column - This administration doesn’t advocate socialism

Clyde Dupin’s March 24 column in the HP Enterprise “Advocates for evil redefine values” begs for rebuttal. Dupin has a right to his views, but why does he think everything not in agreement with his beliefs is “evil”?  He identified four powerful advocates for evil: “our Socialist government, the ACLU, the elite media and educational institutions.”

Your View Polls: Bible classes; NCAA basketball

Sen. Stan Bingham has introduced Senate Bill 138 to allow N.C. high schools to offer elective courses in historical study of the Bible as long as they maintained religious neutrality and diversity of views, traditions and perspectives.

Your View: Guest Column - You think government workers have ‘pay equity’?

Reading two articles from March 24 HPE on raises for county employees (page A1) and unemployment (page A3) prompted a few questions/observations.

Your View: Stop sending money to Middle East countries

Will someone please tell this Georgia dirt farmer why are we sending money, millions of dollars, to Egypt and the other Middle East countries when all they want to do is kill Americans and all the Jews?

Your View: China's actions, U.S. debt will wreck our economy

President Obama recently said in an interview with George Stephanopolus that the national debt is “no big deal.”  Well, the debt is increasing at the rate of $47,000 a  second or $845 million a day.  Where I came from  that’s a  huge deal. This year the deficit is projected to be $915 billion added to the already $16.5 trillion we owe.
