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.

Promote self-sufficiency and strong marriages

Fifty years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson delivered his famous "War on Poverty" speech, purposing "to cure it and, above all, to prevent it." Unfortunately, like our other wars in the last half-century, this one has not lived up to its noble ideals.

Affordable Care Act: A success story

I am one of those folks who signed up for the Affordable Care Act. It was my first time on the open health care market, since I always had health care provided from employment, either mine or my spouse's.

USA can fall due to greed

I honestly don't believe that Democrats and Republicans will ever sit down and compromise on anything. The simple act of governing for all of the people seems to be impossible.

Vilification of Sterling

I would be less troubled with the vilification of Donald Sterling if the popular press, including printed and electronic media, were as aggressive in the treatment of prominent blacks, including sports figures, when they make blatantly racist statements about whites.

Freedom of speech needs some curbs

Pastor Hegg's Sunday column "We don't have to think alike," is, as usual, rooted in fair-mindedness as he supports actions being legislated against, but not simply words.

Sliding down the slippery slope of speech sanctions

Pastor Hegg's column published in The Signal May 11, "We don't have to think alike," beautifully states my own concerns about the current situations when what people say is being used to destroy them financially and socially.

City, take a stand against petition blockers

I know there are quite a few people in the SCV who can remember back to the '40s, '50s and '60s during the big strikes that some of the big companies had - and how violent they were.
