Rape and punishment

If an American citizen is convicted of rape, his punishment is severe, possibly even life in prison. Why, then, should alleged rapist Adrian Arriano be deported (for the third time) if he is convicted?

Love that TV image

Neil Postman, author of "Amusing Ourselves to Death," offers a prophetic voice when he says that television politics offers its viewers a compelling image of themselves in a particular candidate.

Thanks so much for John Boston

I join wholeheartedly with John Boston's prayer, "Dear Lord, save me from the politically correct sub-committee of The Always Victimized."

Hey, Detroit, how about some creativity?

Instead of a total bailout for the Detroit Three, what about making it attractive for prospective car buyers to buy an American-made vehicle?

Great political cartoons

At first, when I viewed the two political cartoons on the opinion page of the Sunday Signal (Nov. 16), I reacted to them with anger.

Go, Team Signal!

I wanted to thank The Signal and Mr. Collier for their recent coverage of the Saugus High School Band and Color Guard.

The health care threat

Lack of creativity, not lack of money, is threatening health care coverage for more than 160,000 children. Like most of the state's health-care safety net, California's Healthy Families program for uninsured children in low-income families is facing the budget ax.

Take time to do the bailout right

Isn't it interesting that regulation and oversight were fighting words for the investment houses, until they stopped making huge profits. Then, when the marketplace started working and their short-sighted risky business practices caught up with their bottom line, they want to be bailed out even before they straighten out their own shops!

Palin in 2012

In the far-right's non-reality-based universe - in which logic was entirely abandoned in lieu of whatever reality the Rovian twisters deemed essential - they are already attacking a popularly elected president-elect before he has spent a minute in the Oval Office.

McCain is not our man

I've followed the presidential campaign from the beginning, riding its roller coaster of events. I've had a hard time putting my finger on exactly what it was that bothered me about John McCain and the prospect of facing four or eight more years with Republicans in the White House.

Blame for McCain

Let me get this straight. John McCain says that the failure of the Wall Street bailout is Barack Obama's fault? Let's backtrack to 1980 and the beginning of the Reagan era.

Squirrel poisoning

I live in the American Beauty Classic housing tract in Canyon Country. Recently I received a letter informing my family and me that our board members - seven homeowners - decided to kill off our squirrel population by poisoning them due to burrowing problems.

No SAG strike! The petition has started to go around.

Republican policies equal economic woes

Look to history. In 1929, the Great Depression, the 1989 recession, and now in 2008, the country was under the command of the Republican Party, Herbert Hoover, Bush Sr., and Bush Jr.

‘Noah’ — it’s just a movie

People (of SCV and others), get over it. "Noah" is a film. A Hollywood film.

Electronic billboard rush to judgment

In the "Our View" editorial on Sunday, March 30, The Signal editorial board questioned the city's reason for rushing for a final vote on the electronic billboard issue.

Why red-light cameras here?

It seems to me that if any city would need to have red-light cameras set up, it would be Los Angeles.

Don’t be taken in by Iran’s false diplomacy

Iran is a theocracy, which means it is led by its religious leaders. The Iranian people are a religious people.

We need more transparency in our elections

So sad to see another state legislator, Leland Yee, accused of criminal political corruption.

PAID CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENT LETTER: The Need for New Blood on the City Council

To clear up any confusion, let me began by saying that I personally paid for this letter of endorsement to be published. It is a somewhat unusual policy to have to pay for an opinion letter, so I want the readers to know that it was I who paid for the opinion, and not the other way around.

Defining difference

When a conservative sees a product or service he likes overseas, he often thinks, "Someone needs to start a business and bring that to my area. Hey, maybe I could start it myself!"

Consumers, take charge of the billboard issue

I fail to see what all the billboard hullabaloo is about. It's obvious these vast slabs of advertising are a visual blight.

Obamacare: biggest fiasco since Prohibition

In Tuesday's Democratic Voices column in The Signal ("The game-changer for Democrats"), Kevin Buck wrote another of his signature Dem/socialist rah-rah pieces cheering all things leftist, booing all things conservative and Republican, and essentially pinning his arguments on Obamacare, claiming "millions of Americans now have access to quality, low-cost insurance and health care for the first time in their lives."

Can you say Vladimir?

Last week the House of Representatives passed the ENFORCE the Law Act of 2014 (H.R. 4138), a simple measure by Congressman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., that would enable members of Congress to sue the Executive Branch in federal court when it disregards or flagrantly violates the U.S. Constitution.

Questions remain in Flight 370 saga

Now that the saga of Flight 370 is coming to a close, we have to ask ourselves some serious questions.

Looking for answers at tonight’s City Council meeting

Tonight is the third and probably last meeting to discuss the electronic billboard issue at Santa Clarita City Hall at 6.p.m. The first two meetings lasted until around midnight with an overwhelming number of attendees (in the hundreds) voicing opposition.

Complications, questions linger in billboard issue

The March 20 Signal article "SCV billboard proposal hits a snag" points out still another reason not to proceed with the ill-advised plan to erect digital billboards on the Interstate 5 freeway and Highway 14: a change of zoning would be necessary.

Your view? Here’s mine

I have the time for Councilman TimBen Boydston to research and present the facts in a transparent manner when a 50-year lighted billboard contract is at stake.

Revisiting ‘Abandoned Flag Flies Anew’

Regarding the Sunday, March 16, Signal story "Abandoned Flag Flies Anew": I salute you, Patrick McGill. Being a vet, I truly appreciate someone who shows their patriotism toward our nation's symbol.
