Rough justice on you and me

From the Nov. 25 SCV Signal:

Slippery slope for US

Whenever people discuss where religious liberty should begin and end, I have a standard answer: It should begin in your heart, but end when it demands the compliance of people who don't share your religious beliefs.

Susan Stamper Brown: Liberals’ Hunger Games

Welcome to the Liberals' version of the Hunger Games, America; unapologetically brought to you by our Progressive friends in the Democrat Party, whose economic policies have lifted a record number of Americans from the middle class and plopped them face down -- into poverty the past five years.

Phil Kerpen: The truth of Obama’s big healthcare lie

You might not be able to keep your plan and you might not be able to keep your doctor. Even President Obama has now apologized for his infamous statement to the contrary. But the promise was worse than untrue. It was used to obscure a moral wrong at the heart of Obamacare.

Toward an ethical Christmas season

It's here! While we've been treated to advertisements, store promotions, and an occasional seasonal song since before Halloween, there is no doubt that the Christmas season has finally landed.

Enjoy the holidays in Old Town Newhall

In praise of good manners

What happened to manners? Have etiquette and common decency gone away? Where did all the considerate people go?

Confusing airfare with healthcare

Congressman Buck McKeon recently sent an "E-News Update" to constituents, unsuccessfully comparing the Affordable Care Act standards to an imaginary government-run airline requiring all air passengers to travel first class. It was a horrendously flawed analogy, exposing McKeon's insensitivities to the devastating, bankrupting problems of "old way" medical coverage. It was one more round of Republican weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth without the slightest effort to suggest anything constructive.

Health of the nation

The political tumult and recent media craziness surrounding the rocky start to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act ignore this reality: We already have "universal" healthcare in this country.

Seemingly disconnected things. One spurious. The other more serious. Both point the same way to freedoms lost, never to be regained.

Thanksgiving is going to the dogs

In 2006 I came up against a holiday deadline crunch, so I turned my column over to Turpy, the beloved eight-year-old Golden Retriever/Chow mix who had turned up at our doorstep as a puppy.

Our lives have meaning and purpose

When Charles Darwin penned his final draft of On the Origin of Species in 1876 he gave the world a game-changing worldview. Up until that time it was generally held that the only explanation for the reality of things was the intentional activity of a higher power, usually understood as supernatural and divine. Darwin's theory of evolutionary natural selection offered a way out. He declared that he could explain the reality of our world, and everything in it, without God.

Trusting our politics

Politics is not for the faint-of-heart or easily discouraged. It's a long game with many moving parts and players. It has all the intrigue of a mystery, all the sport of any game, and strategy that would rival most military coups.

David Hegg: Making sense of your success

I often attend conferences where the attendees are given name tags that boldly announce who they are. This creates a phenomenon rarely seen elsewhere. As we walk the halls of the conference center or hotel, our eyes are fixed on the name tags of those we pass. We're anxious to see if they are "somebody." Is he a well-known speaker?

Betty Arenson: Vote smart in every election

It's one thing to know you and your wallet have been the victims of a legal money-grabbing scam, but to get repeatedly sucker-punched while you are still reeling is the second atrocity.
