I agree with Carole Lutness 100 percent on her Sept. 17 letter. But that goes against everything McKeon believes in, so that will never happen.
Ways to keep American politicians honest are twofold: 1. Make it a law that they can only serve one term of six years. 2. Allow only $100 in campaign contributions per person or company for each election. In that way, American politicians would not have another election to worry about and they would not have any big financial contributors to appease. Politicians spend too much of their time trying to get re-elected and not enough ...
In regards to The Signal's coverage of Congressman Buck McKeon's Women's Conference on Sept. 8:
Recently a friend toured the United Nations in New York City and told me about her visit. Something amazing happened on that tour that has impacted my entire thinking processes, and I'd like to share how my world has changed since speaking with her.
In response to "Props. 31, 32 will benefit all residents," Sept. 16: I strongly disagree with your support of Prop 32, which is a sneaky, dishonest proposition sponsored up by the big money corporations to put the final nail in unions' coffin. It misleads the voter into believing that "corporations will have to restrain from using employees' money for political activity." Guess what?! Corporations don't - and never have - used employees' money for political ...
I just read Howard "Buck" McKeon's "Clearing of red tape needed for recovery" (Sept. 10), and while I applaud his efforts to improve our jobs situation, I would like him to know that if the Cemex mine becomes a reality in Canyon Country, he will never get my vote.
The grounds of all embassies throughout the world are considered to be the sovereign territory of the country occupying the property.
Carole Lutness had a usual rant about how great the progressive agenda can be ("How McKeon can help balance budget," Sept. 17).
Many cities have promoted farmers markets as a way to provide access to fresh and local produce. Our city is no exception.
When a candidate makes a promise - and presents the contents of that promise to the source that can help him fulfill that promise - and is stymied by the obstructive opponents, it is hard to have that promise become a promise.
A Sept. 14 letter to the editor titled "A more sensible location for the Civic Center" questioned the city's role in siting a new courthouse and Sheriff's Station, both proposed to be built at Castaic Junction.
Dear Congressman Howard "Buck" McKeon: While you are considering the budget, here are some of my ideas to get it in balance and have it reflect the Constitution's mandate to "promote the general welfare." - Please tax the rich. Bush's tax cuts for his rich cronies are one of the major reasons we are in such trouble. Don't raise taxes on the rest of us. - Cut the bloated military budget. Everyone knows that the ...
I am confused by the article titled "Ken Striplin's new contract approved" that appeared in the Wednesday, Sept. 12, edition of The Signal:
I think The Signal made a big mistake in printing Mr. Warburton's crying about Pennsylvania and its inability to stack the deck in the current election. Since when can there be 900,000 eligible voters who don't know or remember where they were born?
It's unanimous. Ann Romney, Michelle Obama and Jill Biden gave better, more impassioned speeches than the guys who do it for a living.
In a Feb. 22 Letter to the Editor in The Signal, Brian Baker claims that President Obama is a "socialist."

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."
