The Source of Jacqui Irwin’s Funding

The Source of Jacqui Irwin’s Funding

By Thomas Adams As a resident of Thousand Oaks, I have deep concerns regarding Jacqui Irwin running for State Assembly. Jacqui herself is actually a very nice person, but her misled “Obama-nomic” policies are simply more of the same of what has put California in a tailspin. She voted for Obama twice, subsequently supporting all […]

A hearty farewell to Piers Morgan

A hearty farewell to Piers Morgan

By L. Neil Smith I begin by confessing that I hadn’t heard of you until recently. I haven’t watched CNN for at least twenty years because I don’t want my  brain to shrivel down to the size of a walnut, and I don’t follow TV “celebrities”. I became aware of you when folks began e-mailing […]

The Corporate Threat to Local Sovereignty–Reflections from the Ojai Valley

The Corporate Threat to Local Sovereignty–Reflections from the Ojai Valley

The Ojai Valley has experienced a series of encounters with powerful outside forces in recent years. Each time, local residents have discovered how little control they have over public policies that directly affect their lives, and each example has highlighted the real nature of the relationship between large corporations and the public they supposedly serve.

Try engaging, not alarming voters on pensions

Try engaging, not alarming voters on pensions

By David Grau and Dick Thomson     There’s no single reason why Ventura County should reform its system of pensions and obligations to public employees. There are 100 million reasons. That’s because the county is spending $100 million more in 2014 to pay for pensions than just 10 years ago. That $100 million could […]

Public Sector Pensions are eating taxpayers alive

Public Sector Pensions are eating taxpayers alive

Public-sector pensions are eating taxpayers alive from Jeff Jacoby at the Boston Globe SOME OF my best friends, to coin a phrase, are lifetime government employees. When they stop working, their pensions will put them among the highest-earning retirees in the country. On a personal level, I’m glad my friends’ retirement will be so comfortable. […]

Financial Meltdown for Dummies

Financial Meltdown for Dummies

. . By Michael Greer Practically every day someone on twitter tries to convince me that evil “Big Business”, “Wall Street”, “capitalism” or “bankers” caused the financial meltdown Obama “inherited”. I’m told that if I support any of these things, I, myself, must be evil, selfish, stupid, and some other things I can’t put into […]

Yee suspended from CA Senate- part of a much bigger problem?

Yee suspended from CA Senate- part of a much bigger problem?

By George Miller Foremost CA gun control advocate elected official charged with illegal firearms trafficking, corruption, bribery. Stunning. Often, lately, truth is stranger than fiction. Recently, we reported the fall of Chinese-born Senator Leland Yee, who was, by the way, the leading advocate for “gun control” in the California legislature, pushing bans of “assault weapons” […]
