False promise of tax cuts

Several candidates hoping to replace Gov. Gavin Newsom in the recall election promise to cut state taxes. Their promises are false. Taxes are controlled by the Legislature, which is overwhelming Democrat. Indeed, none of the Republican candidates would have much success implementing their plans. Moreover, none of them could block laws passed by the Legislature, where the Democrats have veto- […]

‘Landslide’ on Sept. 14?

Still stinging from their political defeats and shadowing their collective responsibility for believing and spreading “the big lie” resulting in the insurrection on our U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, a California group has managed to qualify their grievances, you might have heard, with a huge victory: a recall effort. Running on empty, devoid of candidates that can articulate a clear […]

Dog catcher appreciated

My little girl dog, Abby Rose, decided to indulge her desire for a new adventure last week by digging her way to freedom under the fence. Upon discovering this, I immediately jumped into my car and slowly canvased the entire neighborhood, along with Chaparral Park, one of her favorite places, all the time calling her. No luck. Eventually, I drove […]

Mayor violated his oath

Mayor Denis Weber claims he made “a mistake” by reaching out to “an upset business owner.” That is a pair of euphemisms that shows the mayor has no idea of what he has done. First, this “upset business owner” is a person who is operating a business without a valid city permit. He is a person who is putting the […]

Lifestyles of the rich and famous

Rebecca Grossman, if you think your life is in shambles and you are scared and feeling insecure and helpless, think how the Iskander family must feel. Apparently with all your love and compassion for burn victims, you have none left for the family whose sons you murdered. Just because you are rich and have done nice things does not make […]

No proof about mask claim

I read the letter from Pam Stringer and was appalled by her misinformation about masks and vaccines. Evidently her sources for this insanity is Q or Fox News or probably both. Her statement about masks not protecting us from COVID is not on the CDC website as she claims. She claims thousands of deaths, etc. from the shots; may I […]

Observations about COVID-19

As for the efficacy of N95 masks, they do spec to filter 95% of particles larger than .3 microns. A word of caution though. The marketplace has been flooded with counterfeit N95 masks, so if you need to wear a N95 mask, make sure it is NIOSH approved. KN95 masks from China are not NIOSH certified. As for vaccine side […]

‘Vile’ reference to aliens

I am responding to an editorial letter of Aug. 26, “Vaccines and illegal aliens?” This has be one of the most vile letters I have ever read. As an American, I personally do not care what percentage of the COVID cases are illegal aliens. What I do care about is that Americans get vaccinated in larger numbers, business gets back […]

Mail box theft and elections

In the Aug. 26 Acorn, an article by Ian Bradley titled “Sheriff: Mail theft prevalent” reported on the rising theft of U.S. mail. The irony here is that in the same Acorn, the Secretary of State placed a full-page ad about mail-in ballot safety. The mail theft reported in The Acorn article is more sophisticated than just someone casually opening […]

Elder abuse and the recall

It’s very sad that the No. 1 candidate for removing Gov. Gavin Newsom is Larry Elder, with all his negative comments about women being mentally and physically inferior, and now his latest—he thinks that there shouldn’t be a minimum wage, I can just imagine the joy from the Walmart family. They had undocumented workers cleaning their stores after hours for […]
