In keeping with The Signal's policy of limiting letters to 300 words, here's a second response to the Sept. 23 column by Sharon Phillips, "Women's rights under attack."
Mitt Romney stood on-stage and repeatedly lied to the American people and what did he get? "A healthy bump in the polls."
The consensus of professional pundits and casual observers alike is that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney appeared more energetic, confident and aggressive than President Barack Obama in last week's first debate, and for those reasons, "won" the debate.
Thank you for running Sean McLaughlin's letter ("Durst's column more fit for tabloids," Sept. 27).
In response to "Unions are our last voice," Sept. 22: While not perfect by any means, Prop 32 sounds like a step in the right direction. As far as Prop 32 putting the last nail in union coffins, this is well overdue. I see little difference between greedy corporations and greedy unions. The lobbying by the various unions in California has increased their benefits and pensions beyond reason, and the cost of all this has ...
I would have watched the debate (Wednesday) night, except that would have gone against a promise I made to myself: to never listen to anything that skinny lawyer ever has to say again.
The column by Sharon Phillips ("Women's rights under attack," Sept. 23) was almost laughably self-contradictory. It excoriated those who would "turn back the clock," and yet it read like a 1970s feminist manifesto.
Home-schooling is an inferior education. The No. 1 concern in schooling is the social aspect. That is, having to sit next to and intermingle with all types of human beings provides the best education possible.
I was greatly relieved to see how quickly the United States Department of State found that the attack on our consulate in Benghazi was carried out by terrorists and that it was linked to 9/11.
I have a burning question to ask all of your readers. Let me first explain: I am a patient man. Really, a patient man am I. I will wait patiently in my car at the intersection of McBean Parkway and Valencia Boulevard for my turn to proceed. I understand that there must be controlled, systematic rotation of lanes, for without it there would be sheer chaos leading to no movement at all. I'm patient at ...
The left loves to pretend that things they want the government to provide are "rights." However, nobody pays for your actual rights.
The late President Harry S. Truman is quoted as saying, "The buck stops here." His meaning was clear. He wanted our citizens to know that he was the final decision maker and he was willing to take responsibility for how things went. He was an honorable, up-front individual. I would like Congressman Howard "Buck" McKeon to know that because of his inaction to block the Cemex mine, the quote will be, "The Buck stops year." ...
Usually the Signal Opinion page is a treat to read - well-balanced columns well-written by well-informed writers.
In response to the Sept. 18 article that appeared in The Signal regarding absentee (Sulphur Springs School District) board member Sheldon Wigdor, I questioned one of the district's previous board members shortly after this appeared in the paper and they admitted that the board members receive a monthly paycheck and have their medical, dental and vision benefits (and those of their families) paid by the school district,
It was never our intention to homeschool our children. As a professor at public universities for nearly 20 years, my livelihood depends on public funding of education.
I was upset hearing that Rick Perry traveled to California on a "job-poaching mission."
In a Feb. 22 Letter to the Editor in The Signal, Brian Baker claims that President Obama is a "socialist."
The recent movie "Lincoln" was highly acclaimed in this year's Oscar-considerations.
A key difference between Left and Right is that when the Right transgresses the freedom of others, it violates its own tenets.
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."
Leftists of late have become very defensive about being called socialist in their ideology, as typified by Kevin Buck's column (Feb. 19, "Straw men live in glass houses").
CNN news anchor Deb Feyerick recently asked "The Science Guy" Bill Nye if global warming caused the latest asteroid.
"Marriage" is shorthand for a specific legal arrangement between a man and a woman, just as "corporation" or "limited partnership" is a specific legal arrangement between shareholders, business partners, etc.
I was annoyed and saddened by a comment demeaning the Signal: "The Signal is biased, ignorant and often inept at reporting news."
