Eliasberg's editorial is illogical

In response to the editorial "Snippets? Associations? Who is Barack Obama?" (The Signal, Oct. 24): Mr. Eliasberg leads what he believes is a logical response to Obama's political moves, such as his snippets argument and denial of guilt by association. While these methods may be politically motivated, we should also examine what Mr. Eliasberg says about Mr. Obama.

Hey, America, listen to Powell

Take heed, America, and listen to what Colin Powell, Secretary of State 2001-2005, retired general, and a Republican(!), had to say about why he is endorsing Barack Obama for President of the United States and why he is not endorsing John McCain.

Knotts is for fun, not politics

I was extremely disappointed at the skewed and ignorant political mockery that went on during the Knotts Scary stage shows.

Measure SA: Clarifying misapprehensions

In his Sept. 28 column, Tim Myers addresses the Measure SA bond without the benefit of contacting my office or me directly. I wish he had given me the opportunity to review Measure SA with him and clarify many of his assumptions.

Let's preserve the Constitution

Our democracy is not perfect. No democracy ever is.

Scrutinize Obama, not the plumber

I read the story that "Joe the Plumber" is not actually a licensed plumber. This guy asked a simple question and now he is being attacked.

Tim Myers is too offensive

As an independent still trying to decide, I try to read as many opinions as time allows.

Who's the racist in this argument?

Tim Myer's column (Oct. 19) would be positively breathtaking if it weren't so laughably predictable.

Anti-virus, Take 2

As a counterpoint to Joe Messina's answers to questions regarding anti-virus and e-mail, unfortunately Joe is recommending products he also sells and services.

Government charity starts at home

As we grow older, none of us can be certain we won't find ourselves at some point needing assistance to help us pay the rent, mortgage, utility bill, medical bill or some other bills that come up. Senior members among us are struggling to do just these things. Many are on fixed incomes. Others simply don't have the means to meet the basic needs.

Prop. 8 opponents intolerant?

For the second night in a row, our "Yes On Prop. 8" yard signs have been stolen from our front yard. I find it very hypocritical that the liberal groups that support gay marriage call people who vote for traditional family values "intolerant," when they themselves don't allow for free speech when it disagrees with their views.

Prop. 8 opponents oppose free speech

Wow! So this is where we are in our society? Last night my "Yes on 8" yard sign was stolen from my front yard. This doesn't surprise me, however, given the type of people that would not support Prop. 8. If Prop. 8 is defeated, then this is just a glimpse of the suppression of free speech to come. You can be sure that B. Hussein Obama and the rest of the "Dims" will try to further suppress the voice of those who stand for traditional values. To all the Christians out there, it's time to stop being ...

Save money with Measure S

When you vote, remember one of the most important local votes, Measure S. This will mandate removal of the "old-style" water softeners and will help homeowners and businesses avoid huge costs. Only about 10 percent of homes have not taken the rebates and keep the old softeners. Yet unless we remove these chloride pollution sources, we could be forced to install a "brine line" to the ocean. That is estimated to cost every home $500 more and an average business $2,000 more on the sewer portion of the property tax bills. This fee would be annual, and would apply ...

Marching bands

The indomitable Mr. Boston had me laughing out loud at the breakfast table. He must feel the same way about walking music the same way I feel about soccer and still you ruin half a sport page filling it up with that junk.

Ballot language needs to change

An article in The Signal July 3, 2014, quoted the proposed ballot language for the billboard referendum on November's ballot: "Shall Ordinance No. 14-02 adopting a Development Agreement with Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) for the removal of 62 advertisement structures, within the city, by Metro or any other means, and construction and operation of three digital billboards, adjacent to Interstate 5 and State Route 14 freeways, and the dedication to the city of revenue received from digital billboards, which creates an ongoing revenue stream, be adopted?"

HOAs can and are getting on board with drought restrictions

"Following the water rules" (Thursday's Signal) expresses a legitimate concern of SCV HOA residents - they are concerned about penalties for letting their lawns go brown as they cut back water use - landscaping accounts for some 60 percent of residential water use - because associations have rules about care and upkeep of homes, landscape and lawns.

Legalize marijuana — but with restrictions

There is no doubt that the legalization of marijuana is gaining favor throughout the country, and I have to say that I am for it - but with some very strong reservations.

Let’s derail the train and desalinate ocean water
