Just as the crusades for "affordable housing" ended up producing disasters like public housing and a ruinous real estate market, so many of the same politicians are now carrying on a crusade for "affordable health care." Expect the same results. No message has been more welcomed by the gullible, in countries around the world and throughout history, than the promise of something for nothing.

The Senate is ready to debate its version of health care "reform." Weeks of intense political posturing and payoffs are projected, with a possible final showdown right before Christmas. Though pollsters say popular support has declined to below that of Hillarycare, the Democratic majority seem determined to force dramatic changes on members of an unwilling public. With our economy crumbling around us under the burden of ill-advised bailouts, who can blame them? Concerned Independents ...
My wife Cathy lost her battle with cancer on Nov. 18. We fought this deadly disease for 10 years with strength and determination. She will be missed big time.
Consider this a Thanksgiving postcript. If there's one thing that's a standout about Santa Clarita Valley residents, it's that they're a pretty giving bunch, in both good times and lean times. Early last week, this paper reported on the sparse shelves at the Church of Hope's food pantry. On Tuesday, it was down to one turkey to give away for Thanksgiving.

We all know that perception often influences our decisions, yet we catch ourselves and become reminded that what we perceive isn't always what's really going on. With the constant barrage of information available in today's 24/7 world, it's important to not get caught up in the day-to-day market volatility and news headlines.
