Stop the speeding

Unfortunately, as an 18-year resident of a home on Lake Lindero Drive, I can attest to the speeding that takes place on a daily basis.

The politicians in Sacramento and Washington, D. C., have ignored the American public for too long. Instead of cutting spending to resolve the deficits, they continue to live large and support ever increasing governments, state and federal, by raising taxes. The American taxpayer is tired of the same old rhetoric about hurting the school kids. It’s time to get rid […]
