Re: last week's Forum page debate over Obamacare. Ask anyone from Canada or England about government-run health care. One-size-fits-all thinking is just stupid. Ask yourself what government program, starting with President Johnson's War on Poverty in 1965, has not grown beyond its original budget. Obamacare limits the profits insurance companies can make. Where in our Constitution is there authority for the government to limit private business and its profits? We're on a slippery slope, folks.

by Joe Puglia “You have to give back,” he said. “How can you not?” Don Sheppard took another breath and his intensity subsided. As though he couldn’t believe his next remark he said, “All this, just because of a soccer ball.” I found his perspective prophetic, and believed that the soccer ball Don spoke of was incidental to a much larger quest embedded in the spirit of this man. From the burgeoning idea of youth soccer Don has created a program that reaches beyond the confines of sport and finds its impetus in the development and transformation of youth.

Twenty-two La Cañada Flintridge teens plan to fast, living on only water and juice for 30 hours this weekend. The fast is part of a World Vision project to promote awareness about poverty-stricken nations.

Oh my, it's going to be a long four years; I can barely contain myself. The rhetoric continues unabated and the insanity won't stop anytime soon. Social Security has now replaced the WMD mantra of this administration and the results will be the same, disastrous. Who would have guessed that after two years in Iraq, almost 1,500 deaths, around 10,000 seriously wounded, billions and billions of dollars spent (wasted), the resulting election would give a majority to a religious party?

Author and syndicated radio talk show host Dennis Prager is one of the better conversationalists you'd ever meet, but he pulls no punches for political correctness' sake. "Ask me anything," he invites during an afternoon meal at Ichiban Japanese Restaurant in La Cañada Flintridge — a favorite dining spot of his since moving here in 2007— handling chopsticks almost as deftly as he articulates deeply conservative politics and confident moral beliefs, relishing food and idea alike.
