It is refreshing that we are able to read more about Sacramento in The Signal. Perhaps people are starting to pay attention to the oncoming crisis which could start a demand for fixing the mess that we are in. Our dysfunctional state government is almost comical - single-issue representatives, a governor who has separated himself from everybody, a Legislature that has caused massive deficits even in the boom years and propositions that are insults to ...
We've all been victims of a bait and switch: a sales tactic in which an item is used to attract customers who, once lured, find themselves receiving something different than what was offered.

Mr. Creitz has made some interesting and uninformed comparisons in his letter. Creitz, in his wisdom, is making a comparison between President Obama and that of 1933 Nazi Germany. Where was he during these past eight years prior to President Obama? It seems that Creitz does not remember or acknowledge the infamous "Patriot Act," which the George W. Bush administration pushed through Congress immediately after Sept. 11, 2001. That administration capitalized on fear amongst the ...

The new law became effective January ...
