Obama Derangement Syndrome goes both ways

I am writing in response to Kevin Buck's Feb. 11 column in The Signal ("Obama Derangement Syndrome") in which he condemns the questioning of President Obama as nothing more than conspiracy theories and ginned-up scandals, often motivated by pure hatred.

America needs to change its energy policy

I don't know about you, but to me, reducing the threat of climate change would best be accomplished by having good flood control, stout construction, a reliable water supply and affordable energy - Not by following leaders who think we can reduce the threat of climate change by stopping the change.

Average Americans dress like bums

With perhaps the exception of church services (and even some of them need the following counsel), I have noticed that the average American - even at work - dresses like a bum, no pride in one's attire at all.

HOAs can and are getting on board with drought restrictions
