On Feb. 12, the president delivers his State of the Union address, and he is followed almost immediately by a GOP spokesman who says, "Oh, no, that's not the way it is.
Get the cars that have expired tags 30-180 days late. Get the drivers driving with headlights off when it is getting dark. Get those driving while talking on cell phones.
If Mr.Gandelman ("Can the Republican Party rebrand itself?" Jan. 31) feels obligated to criticize the Republican Party, he should look at the behavior of the Democrat Party as well.
The computer age - that age we all now live under - causes stupidity to reign in high fashion throughout all of America. Indeed, one no longer needs to be intelligent nor learned to land a well-paying job, not these days.
On Monday afternoon, Feb. 11, I had the honor of attending Congressman Buck McKeon's 2nd Amendment Conference at Valencia's Salt Creek Restaurant.
Anyone who is following the gun debate quickly sees that both sides have some reasonable positions, but what also seems clear and perhaps most significant is that we have some cowardly congressmen serving in Washington.
Driving west on Creekside Road in the right-hand lane approaching McBean Parkway, there is a warning traffic sign that reads "Right Lane Must Turn Right," which I always felt was confusing.
Reader Ted Aquaro (Signal, Jan. 29, 2013) seems alarmed that the president may issue an executive order taking away our guns.
In response to "An open letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein" (Jan. 31): I wonder how concerned Mr. Ladouceur would be about losing his Second Amendment rights if one of his own family members happened to be shot and killed with an assault weapon - a weapon no one needs for hunting purposes. Wake up, Mr. Ladouceur.
On Friday, Jan. 25, approximately 500,000 people marched on Washington to support the sanctity of life.
In response to Charlie Vignola's column "If you can't beat 'em, cheat 'em" (Jan. 29):
Democrats, 150 years ago: "I wouldn't personally own a slave, but it's a slaveowner's right to decide that for themselves."
I just read Michael Reagan's Jan. 18 column, "Obama ignores the rational answer," wherein he calls for armed guards in every school. It is his second column in recent time advocating the same solution. I question his approach.
Well here we go again. Phil Mickelson said he made $47 million and paid 62 percent in taxes. Hey. Phil, you have the wrong accounting firm working for you or not working that hard. Take Mitt Romney. He makes $20 million and only pays 15 percent taxes. Yes, he has a house here in California. Take Tiger, Jack N., Arnold P. - they live in Florida. Just saying.
Dear Editor: A special thank you goes to The Signal for publishing comments of my two favorite thinkers - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Dr. Arthur Schopenhauer - from time to time in the section titled "The Still Small Editorial." Yes, every now and again, these two brilliant thinkers get some of their thoughts thusly published in The Signal, and I cut them out of that newspaper and mail them to my brother Mike, ...
I urge all drivers to contact the California Transportation Commission www.catc.ca.gov (and any local representative) to voice their disapproval of Assembly Bill AB 680, which gives private entities the right to charge drivers to use the highways they are already paying to build and maintain.
Once we have removed the excess chloride from our wastewater, are we just going to give the water away to the farmers in Ventura?
Concerning Jim Holt's article on teens dying in the SCV ("Sand Canyon residents remember youth killed at oak tree 32 years ago," May 8), I can understand his concern.
I just finished reading Gary Horton's column on victimhood. If I didn't know better I'd swear he suddenly became a Republican. His comments were spot on. In this age of blame the other guy for your own lack of responsibility, it's good to see that someone else gets it. Good job, Gary.
Thanks for hosting the Summer Meltdown. This is so important to the Yes I Can program. I witnessed a special moment that I will never forget. One of the Yes I Can students was withdrawn and another student was holding her arm around her. One female teachers from the Yes I Can program went up to her and held her in her arms for a good couple of minutes (just the kindest hug) as to say it's OK. Then the girl and friend went on their way,
The Boston bombing brought to light a very clever way of carrying out covert operations in another country. Our own CIA can learn from the Tsarnaev brothers on how to conduct an operation and have that country finance it for them.
Remember when that man, Rick Perry, came to California to promote and emphasize "that HIS state of Texas doesn't bother with pesky regulations on industry.
Not two weeks after "our" 13-year-old gay teen, Nigel Hardy,committed suicide in Palmdale from being bullied as his school's male cheerleader, the president of the board of "our" Hart School District, Joe Messina, brought a known (adult) bully of gays, Brad Dacus, of the ironically named www.pacificjustice.org, as the keynote speaker at "our" city's Mayor's Prayer Breakfast at the Hyatt Regency Valencia. Even after the AV teen's death, Dacus called for parents not to attend ...
I always enjoy a good chuckle on a Sunday morning, and the letter by Richard Myers today allowed me a good one.
I recently read Brian Baker's April 24 letter "On logic, liberated thinking and gun control."
Sure hoping we will have other options besides the birds for the traffic circle sculpture coming to Old Town Main Street area.
It comes by surprise. Bombs explode and people run; some are killed, hundreds are injured. Why? What is in the mind of men to do such things?
In his article of April 20 ("Setting a bad example"), Tim Myers posits a definition of a "geography" partisan and divides them into good, neutral and bad.
