Got government?

Congress authorizes $700 billion to save the mortgage meltdown but no one has a clue how to apply the funds.

Sarah Palin is an insult to the voters

Republican animosity to government regulation is long-standing. And yes, they emphasize property rights over notions of the commons and have often been comfortable sacrificing wildlife, air, and water quality in the pursuit of profits.

How does she know?

Thank you, Diana Sevanian, for your article in the opinion section on Sept. 7 regarding Sarah Palin.

A slap in the face

Southern California Edison's hypocrisy is now exposed. Very exposed. So much for their "Environmentally Conscious" advertising.

Say no to NAFTA

Karl Marx, the father of communism, stated in a speech given in Brussels, Belgium, on Jan. 8, 1848: "The (free trade) system is destructive. I will use the (free trade) system to break down nationalities in order to build my communist world."

What’s going on?

Who is responsible for copy editing at The Signal? I wonder this almost daily, most often when the copy is local, but sometimes even with copy from the wire services. Examples are voluminous, but a case in point: Did anyone there notice that "Doonesbury" was there in name only (no strip) in the Sept. 18 edition?

Discrimination is wrong

We people of faith can and do hold different opinions on issues. In regard to Proposition 8, I am puzzled that those who have known/experienced religious discrimination would choose to discriminate against gays and lesbians whose sexuality is NOT a choice.

Flipping the bird

I suggest to David Kirscher ('Flipping the bird' is protected expression, Letters, Nov. 11) that even though "flipping off" a group of political demonstrators may be protected as a form of "political speech," how about practicing common decency? Just because it is legal doesn't make it right.

Early voting blues

The public seems to have already forgotten that the election in Los Angeles County was a travesty for early voters.

Governor all wrong

Gov. Schwarzenegger seems to have it all wrong. Originally he said he believes that marriage should be between a man and a woman and he rejected legislation authorizing same-sex marriage (ref. Los Angeles Times, Nov. 10: "Schwarzenegger tells backers of gay marriage").

Your God, my God

Dear John Graham Who Voted Yes on 8 (Letters, Nov. 13): You believe in the sanctity of marriage that is the design of God, our creator, and believe it should be between one man and one woman in a miraculous procreative purpose.

EEOC issues gay guide

I replaced the word "religion" or "religious" with "gay" or "gayness" in the following from EEOC. Interesting!

Coyotes will be coyotes

Don't blame a wild animal for doing something that it is driven to do. Blame the builders for encroaching on the coyotes' habitat.

A compromise on hospital expansion

There has been a lot of talk about G&L Realty and the Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital master plan and developers agreement.

Proud to be an Eagle mom

As a proud mother of an Eagle Scout who is now 26 and a practicing attorney in Denver, Colo., I was so touched by Pamela Sprott's letter to the editor, "In the rank of Eagles." (Oct. 27.)

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.

Take it to heart and conserve water

Editor's note: About 50 percent of the water consumed in the Santa Clarita Valley comes from underground water sources.

Treat refugees with compassion

The relatively small country of Italy (compared to the USA) has managed to take in more than 70,000 illegal immigrants (refugees) fleeing poverty, war and oppression in Northern Africa.

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

I have been agonizing over our water shortage issues for some time now, and am worried at the impact of having neighbor snitching against water using neighbors, and the hard feelings it may cause.

Terrorism poses threat to proposed high-speed rail

I am a new subscriber to The Signal. I missed your satirical editorial piece on July 13, which Michelle Boehm responded to in the July 20 issue of The Signal.

Send the children back home

There have been a great many suggestions about how this country should handle the crisis posed by the thousands of children invading our country.

Base Hart districts on the high schools

In my humble opinion, the most straightforward, simplest answer to the William S. Hart Union High School District going to board member representation by areas/districts would be to add two board positions.

Let’s use our solar energy for our water

It seems incomprehensible that with the great shortage of water for this state, trillions of gallons of water lie off the cost and remains unused by those affected most.

Snake alert

Recently, I was driving in my neighborhood when something caught my eye crossing the street in front of me. A very large gopher snake was booking it across the hot asphalt from left to right.

We deserve better

John Boehner is the Speaker of the House of Representatives. He leads the House of Representatives as majority leader. Senator Mitch McConnell is the minority leader of the Senate. He's been attacking the President for the last six years unsuccessfully!

Let's be civil

I agree with Gary Horton (Opinion, July 9). It seems though that our country is less civil. If I speak of our President, I will state "our President" or "Mr. Barack Obama."

Mind the speed limits and rest in peace

Since this is the time when a great many Santa Clarita families will be hitting the road on vacation, I thought I should share my recent experience with readers.

The Signal reported on July 10 ("Bill would mandate sick pay for part-time employees") that the City Council voted to oppose Assembly Bill 1522 as the "...estimated financial impact to the city as a result of the bill could be as high as $180,000 per year."
