Peril Lurks Behind Yes and a No Vote on Citizen’s United Case


Op-Ed

Whichever way Californians vote this fall on Prop. 49, which aims to convince Congress to pass a constitutional amendment overturning the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision on political fundraising, they will send a dangerous message to the rest of America. Vote yes, in favor of nixing the court’s decision to remove restrictions on political spending by corporations and labor unions, and voters will be saying they want this done at all costs. With the Republican-dominated House of Representatives highly unlikely to pass anything that might restrict corporate political donations, a yes vote could conceivably lead to the first full-fledged constitutional convention America has seen since the 1780s.read

Conflicting Opinions: Keep the Children or Send Them Home?


Op-Ed

Dateline Dayton -- The controversy over the thousands of immigrant children from Central America has made its way to Dayton. Mayor Nan Whaley has said she would welcome some of the children here. U.S. Rep Mike Turner of Dayton claims the area does not want the children. He said the mayor’s position is out of line. Congressman Turner even has written President Obama about his view.read

Without Prop. 30, California Would Create More Jobs


Op-Ed

In his recent essay for the Sacramento Bee, “State’s job growth defies predictions after tax increases,” David Cay Johnston argues that California’s recent job creation numbers prove recent tax increases embodied in Prop. 30 aren’t killing jobs or slowing economic growth. Yet the evidence Mr. Johnston presents is less than convincing -- surprising for an academic and former investigative journalist. He points to recent positive job growth numbers. However, he neglects to mention that ...read

Israel Had No Choice but to Fight a Ground War


Op-Ed

Dateline Jerusalem – I had just come back yesterday from a jaunt to my stairwell after the Red Code Alert sirens had wailed. A little problem unlocking my front door, but still made it into the shelter of the stairwell in record time. I am getting great exercise running to the stairwell every day. What a social life I have, meeting many neighbors while the sirens scream and the booms of rockets exploding assault our ears.read

What Happens When You Sleep Through a Code Red?


Op-Ed

Dateline Jerusalem -- What a way to start a Tuesday, or shall I say finish it? Officially it was a new day, but I had yet to go to sleep. Good thing I don't go to bed before the wee hours. I was fully dressed and alert at 2:30 a.m. when the sirens wailed across my area. A few people half dressed, half asleep tumbled out into the stairwell. Others brought their pillows with them. One lady was dressed in a towel. I guess the rest ...read

Board Race Reminds Me: Time for Ridley-Thomas to Say Goodbye


Op-Ed

Three of the most tenaciously destructive problems endemic to the black community are political apathy, a lack of education and the self-serving corruption of some politicians and so-called "community leaders." The Aug. 12 race for the First District seat on the Los Angeles Unified School District School Board has revealed conclusively that County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas and his new young crony, Alex Johnson, are the embodiment of all three problems.read

Rarity – A German View of Islam


Op-Ed

My friend Zsuzie Kraenz, an Emeritus College classmate, sent this. I thought you might be interested ... This is one of the best explanations of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. His references to past history are accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read. The author of this email is Dr. Emanuel Tanya, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist. A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.read

How Israel Threatens Perfect Circle Islamists Have Drawn


Op-Ed

Dateline Jerusalem – The month of Av, the saddest on the Hebrew calendar, began yesterday. It started quietly, an occasional Code Red Alert siren blaring. But it was the last day of the Islamic religious month of Ramadan. Increased rocket fire was expected from Gaza as the day wore on. I should be immune to the sirens, alarms, booms, thuds by now. I am not.read

Secret of Hypnosis – Only If You Want to Do It


Op-Ed

Hypnosis cannot make you do something you do not want to do, not anything you wouldn’t do in a waking state. A gentleman recently called me to help his girlfriend quit smoking. It was no surprise to me when he called again to cancel. Something had come up with her children. He said he would rebook. He has not. He wanted his girlfriend to stop smoking, but, she came up with excuses. More than two months later, we can conclude she did not want ...read
