In 1999 I had a discussion with a good friend of mine in Texas. I asked her, "Who are you going to vote for?" Her reply changed my political path for the rest of my life.
Fraudulent voter registration may not lead to fraudulent votes, but it certainly skews polls, which use registration numbers as their basis. Therefore, today's polls showing a given candidate with a lead may show phony results because of phony voter registration.
It seems odd to me that in this country where we fought to have the right to free speech and freedom of religion, and to be one nation under God, that we can't find a way to the common good for all.

Shame on the editorial board of The Signal for recommending a No vote on Proposition 2, a measure that, if passed, will improve the living conditions of millions of chickens, calves and pigs on factory farms in California.

I was appalled to read that The Signal opposes Prop 2. After all, it is only asking that farmers and ranchers give a little more room to chickens that live their whole lives crowded together in small cages. Chickens' "whole life" really just lasts about 1.5 years due to the lack of movement and the continuous amount of eggs that they are forced to give. Their bones weaken so much that they can't even stand ...

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. That daily hype doesn't always dovetail with what Wells Fargo Advisors top strategists are observing in the financial marketplace.
