Should’ve stuffed it in the mattress

If the U.S. government has to bail out all the banks and lending companies with taxpayers' money, then I think they should have to feel part of the pain by losing a part of their overpaid salaries and all of the perks.

Jackson would give Dems majority in Senate

They say that insanity is defined by doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result. If this is true, why would we send another tax-and-spend liberal to Sacramento? Hannah-Beth Jackson has a long record of increasing taxes and growing government. If she were to become our next state senator, Democrats would essentially hold a two-thirds majority in the senate, thereby eliminating the need to negotiate on how much of our money they can take and giving them the ability to override a veto of the governor. While some things need to be streamlined, the ability ...

An Arctic tall tale brought to you by oil

A tall tale from Big Oil has been floating around the media recently. Big Oil's mission is to make destroying pristine wilderness sound reasonable. They tell us: "We're only going to drill in 2,000 acres of the Arctic Refuge. We swear!"

Free up taxpayers’ credit with new deduction

Perhaps a bit late, but I would like to suggest that Congress allow taxpayers to deduct up to $1,000 of credit card interest on their tax returns. Buck (McKeon), can you make that happen?

Elect a thinker like Obama, not an erratic

Let the smears begin. It certainly didn't take long for the McCain campaign to attempt to sling mud at Obama. Having Sarah Palin make a comment about his palling around with terrorists is just another desperate attempt to take the public's eyes off of McCain's erratic behavior during this time of economic crisis. We have been through this before. Obama was not close to Bill Ayers and has denounced his radical views and activities.

GOP uses push poll politics in campaign

Well, the local Republicans seem to be up to their same old dirty tricks.

Back Tony Strickland for economy’s sake

With both our state and national economy in crisis, it's always interesting to hear local candidates talk about their economic plans and visions. In the important race for the California 19th Senate seat, Democratic candidate Hannah-Beth Jackson has been totally unwilling to address this issue.

Holier than thou

It has finally happened. Stevenson Ranch, in taking a cue from the fictional television show "Weeds," has now officially turned into Majestic, the religiously biased community bent on taking over what was the beautiful town of Agrestic.

Government is not the solution

The bailouts are tantamount to government takeovers of major U. S. industries. Obama and some senators are already planning corporate restructuring and deciding which executives should be fired and how much the remaining ones should be paid.

Bloodsuckers!

I understand there is a new business opening up in Newhall. Can you ask Mr. Boston if there will be any openings?

'Racism' charge insults real victims of racism

How pathetic is it that a paper like The Signal will do anything to get headlines, and some people are so starved for attention that they will malign a person, an organization or even a whole system?

Of pit bulls and humans

Is it just me, or is there a one-sided tilt on the way this pit bull issue is perceived at Valencia High School?

Rent control unfair

I'm a resident of the Cordova mobile home park and attended the hearing at City Hall on the evening of Dec. 3, the first-ever hearing appealing a rent increase.

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. Ragged blue jeans coupled with ragged tee-shirts dress most of our Santa Clarita residents, these days.

Skateboarder behaviors

How many more families are going to have their hearts broken by their young people going around with ear plugs on a skateboard or bicycle and not paying attention to the traffic lights at an intersection?

Kudos to Newhall Tennis Club members featured in Signal’s Our Community

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.
