Meg Whitman is running for governor to help bring Californians together for a common purpose." One wonders what that purpose is? Possibly to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants? Or just give them the state's treasury? Meg Whitman claims to be a "conservative" Republican. She contributed the maximum $4,000 to Barbara Boxer's ...
Which Santa Clarita City Council member is an embarrassment to the city? I have been following the many articles regarding Bob Kellar's statement that he is a "proud racist." I know Kellar and he is not a racist. He used that divisive statement as irony.
