Even for a rightie, a McCain vote still isn’t certain

As did William F. Buckley Jr. and Barry Goldwater, I reject rote, unthinking party loyalty. I reject the censure of my individualism, sagacity and liberty.

Taylor Jones: On misguided thinking

Bruce McFarland's commentary that appeared in the Dec. 23 issue of The Signal is particularly interesting because it's in a real sense a tour de force of flawed, liberal thought.

Measure SA is a $5 myth

Think about it. If Measure V required $30 per $100,000 of assessed home value to raise $158 million, how, then, is it possible to raise $300 million on $5, as proponents of Measure SA claim?

Dedicated to propositions, part 2

Presidential election years are the World Cup for politics junkies, and this year has been one of the best ever.

Bob Dickson: Jesus Christ and Karl Marx ... who knew

I promised myself when I signed on to contribute to this space that I wouldn't mix politics and religion because they don't belong together. I don't want to hear my pastor going on about which candidate or policy I should support, and I don't need my elected officials meddling in how I choose to worship.

Economic recovery plan

Two days ago the Federal Reserve cut a key interest rate to one percent in an effort to stimulate the economy. The economy is on the mind of virtually every tax-paying worker, parent, and retiree. It is also the No. 1 issue for voters heading to the polls Nov. 4. And while cutting interest rates historically shores up investor enthusiasm, our country's economic health is sitting in an unusual position. What the country truly needs now is a strategic, common-sense plan to revive our economy, produce more American jobs and ultimately ensure long-term prosperity.

David Hegg: We don’t have to think alike

In every ordered and civilized society the rule of law plays an essential role. Given that human nature is too often selfish and sometimes even cruel, laws are enacted to declare the boundaries between right and wrong. Laws form the lens through which society views the actions of those individuals who choose to live in the group.

David Hegg: Toward ethical friendship

Someone has rightly said that a true friend is one who walks in when everyone else is walking out. In most areas of life, tragedy and trial bring truth to the surface. Your true character is best seen in the worst of situations, when the façade falls away and you no longer can hide who you are. When it comes to friendships, hard times bring out the reality of the relationship.
