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.

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.

We'll get the government we deserve

Four years on from our last presidential election, a truism lives in painful memory. We got the government we deserved.

Kevin Buck: Semper Fi

Savvy conservatives long ago figured out that those of us on the political left are not guided by conscience or individually acquired thought. So they've concluded.

Another conservative ideologue?

Elections provide choices. When voters have accurate information about the candidates, their choices are easier. This election offers an exceptionally clear choice within the competitive 19th Senate District that represents a significant part of the Santa Clarita Valley.

One of the most profound rights we have as citizens is the right to petition. The First Amendment of our Constitution "prohibits Congress from abridging or prohibiting the right of the people ... to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

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.
