For the second night in a row, our "Yes On Prop. 8" yard signs have been stolen from our front yard. I find it very hypocritical that the liberal groups that support gay marriage call people who vote for traditional family values "intolerant," when they themselves don't allow for free speech when it disagrees with their views.
Wow! So this is where we are in our society? Last night my "Yes on 8" yard sign was stolen from my front yard.

Twisted. That's the only word for the logic behind a pair of lawsuits that would block the expansion of our community's only hospital. "What we hope to do is make sure that hospital beds and promised benefits to the community are really built," said Lynne Plambeck, president of Santa Clarita Organization for Planning the Environment. "It's not our intention to hold things up," added SCOPE board member Cam Noltemeyer. Hello? We just went through an ...
