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 have been reading as well as watching news broadcasts about the many hikers who have been lost recently.
The gun control debate in Washington has turned into a sad Congressional joke but a great argument for term limits.
The Left is shocked - shocked! - that the Koch brothers use their own money to sway public opinion.
Climate scientists have recently concluded that man-made emissions are not significant enough to have a noticeable effect on the climate. When humans billow billions of tons of CO2 into the atmosphere, it doesn't change the climate.
In the current national debate over efforts to redefine the historic institution of marriage, some key concerns have hardly been mentioned.
Regarding The Signal's Letter to the Editor "Driving in Santa Clarita: Some rules of the road" (March 23, 2013):
Exclusionary arguments by gay marriage advocates (i.e., against polygamy, marrying relatives, marrying oneself, marrying underage, etc.) make the traditional marriage case for their opponents: i.e., that the social institution of marriage involves a lot more than simply "marry whomever you love."
Although I am not a churchgoer, I love reading the columns every Sunday titled "Ethically Speaking" by Grace Baptist Church Senior Pastor David Hegg. Indeed, his columns make me think and feel good about myself.
On March 3, The Signal published the editorial "Conference center: Don't give up yet." I was delighted to read this article and I think the words were needed to offset the idea that the cost of the land and construction would keep the conference center from being built.
The issue of homosexuality is deeply personal for many families. Such is the case for Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, who recently announced he has changed his mind on how marriage should be defined.
I read Mr Arenson's letter ("Jesus not a liberal Democrat," March 23, 2013), and agree with him completely. But there are some things that could be added, such as abortion.
Kevin Buck believes "Jesus would be a liberal Democrat".
With a heavy heart I am compelled to write this letter to the editor on the anniversary date of the Iraqi War.
Yes, many cars in Europe of the same make and model have higher mpg ratings than their U.S. counterparts. The U.S. and Euro testing standards differ, as do the tuning specifications (such as fuel/air and ignition timing, computer mapping).
In my humble opinion, the only way the U.S. Postal Service will survive is to STOP service one day a week. The question we all should be asking is not whether to stop service one day a week, but which day of the week.
