All efforts should be going to the Gaza-Israeli and the fiscal cliff problems in hopes to settle those problems! The Gaza and Israeli conflict ...
I want to wish all the unions of America a very well-deserved congratulations for being the primary instrument in getting 18,000 Hostess employees laid off at Thanksgiving/Christmas time. So much joy will be had by those employees while the slimy union thugs sit back in their warm, cozy houses and experience a large dining room table filled with all sorts of food paid for by the dues of laid-off employees.

There won't be a song about how our flag was still there, because it wasn't. Maybe stories of the battles that almost took place in Benghazi will come out soon.

No one is questioning their own convictions as good humans must. Why are we not philosophizing anymore; why is there no longer a greater importance on questioning our truths?

In response to "Some compromise could head off looming cliff," Nov. 11: If President Obama did all the things Walt Watson feels will rescue America from financial Armageddon - he would be President Romney. But he ain't, and rescue is unlikely.
In trying to explain how school funding works, I chose a topic close to my heart: home economics. I like to eat, so much of my life revolves around cooking and eating.
In response to Richard Myers' letter of Nov. 11, I agree that the Letters to the Editor section is not the correct place for "paid" political endorsements. My letter from Nov. 2 was mentioned as an example, being dubbed a "paid candidate endorsement" letter.
Are we doing all we should for the people hit by (Superstorm) Sandy? I know the Red Cross and FEMA are there, but still I wonder.
Michael Reagan's syndicated article "GOP turns sure victory into defeat" (Nov. 8) misses the mark on so many fronts.
Here is what gets me: The Republicans are always asking, where are the jobs? Well as of March 1, 2013, they are going to let thousands of people get laid off.

Regarding Alice Khosravy's column "California is at bottom for business," (Feb. 22), Khosravy's excellent commentary was so clear and so factual citing a huge - if not t-h-e huge - problem that is at the core of California being on life support as a state, a once-thriving, enviable state.
The Boy Scouts of America need to allow gays into their organization because that is the moral imperative, if you will, toward "a more perfect union."
