Please don’t blame shelters.

Be responsible: Prevent unwanted litters
A little bit of knowledge and understanding would solve our problem of thousands of unwanted cats and dogs from being killed in our shelters.
Someone who is told of the millions of unwanted litters that are born, who does not do the responsible thing of getting their pet fixed, has blood on their hands.
Shame on every one of you who does not do this for your pet!

Media, left wing wrong to degrade tea party
Bill Clinton’s recent attack on a group of peaceful Americans for expressing their constitutional rights is despicable.
The tea party has shown great restraint and control, despite the left wing, and the news media and sleazy politicians trying to discredit them.
The latest poll shows 80 percent of the people do not want Obama’s socialism, because it leads to the eroding of freedoms.
We do not want government control of every aspect of our lives — and those on the left, including the AJC, will soon realize this.

Baby boomers must consider young people
After reading Jay Bookman’s column (“State legislators’ ‘reasoning’ selfish and short-sighted,” Opinion, April 16) about the tax cuts gifted to wealthy senior citizens, I’m ashamed to be a baby boomer. While we kill arts organizations, bleed schools to death and starve public transit, we cut taxes to those who could most afford to contribute to the public good in Georgia.
We need to develop a long- term vision for the future that considers younger people for a change.
Shame on the Republican leaders of this state.
