Two years of political wrangling will come to an end Tuesday, assuming contested poll tabulations don’t prolong the presidential election in the same painful way they did eight years ago. I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait for the unrelenting rhetoric to stop. And I’m especially unimpressed, frankly, with the party I registered with at the tender age of 19, when I enthusiastically cast my first presidential vote for Richard M. Nixon’s second term.

The immigration situation in Arizona esta que arde esta que arde , I told my dad last week, meaning that things seem to be at a boiling point in that state. The new immigration law in Arizona makes it illegal for immigrants to be in the state — regardless of whether you’re just trailing through it — without proper documentation. Police can question your immigration status only if it is part of a larger investigation, say, you were stopped for speeding or failing to yield to a pedestrian.

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?

For the most part, hugs are gone — wiped out by the political-correctness mob who rise up with moral righteousness to stop free speech and free expression and as a result, no hugs — symbolic of all that ails us. Maybe the more apt term is political incorrectness. There’s a blurring of the lines that separate the two beliefs. I recognize too, that you might think I am naïve to urge more civility in the cause of lowering the national temperature. I am not naïve. Rather I want to push our leaders to lead us and to quit hammering each other with nonsensical positions that lack common sense.

Letters to the Editor Bob Tanabe’s rant in your last issue had me laughing out loud. [“Communist Infiltration,” Our Readers Write, Sept. 27] Just one question: What’s a humor column doing in the opinion section? — Matt Bogen La Cañada   It’s been quite a week for simplistic, conspiracy theories. First it was Mahamoud Amadinejad’s bewildering holocaust denial, tirades against Zionism and his claim, against all objective evidence, that free speech thrives in his country, Iran’s women are not second-class citizens and that there is no discrimination against gays because there are no homosexuals in Iran.

Given our community's involvement in charity events for the homeless and abused, the recent righteous outcry against our city council members' efforts to comply with state zoning laws is disturbing . LCF should “walk the talk” of what our churches preach every Sunday, namely, “Charity begins at home.” What does it say about us if we pour our energies into keeping out a tiny fraction of the less socially and economically fortunate rather...

Now that the election has come and gone , it is important to me that I write to you regarding the rhetoric used in several social media sites as community members discussed the involvement of teachers in the political process. First, I want to share with you that we elected a group of teachers to interview all eight of the candidates. Using the same questions, we engaged in a discussion with each candidate. At the end of our interviews, we chose to endorse three candidates whom we believed would work hard for our students.

Assemblyman Anthony Portantino said this week that he believes the governor and legislature can solve the state budget crisis by the end of the year, one of the more optimistic predictions coming recently out of Sacramento. Portantino said Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger must rally members of his party to make a deal on a program of cuts and revenue boosts to meet the state?s $11.2 billion revenue gap. ?He has to do more than just hold press conferences,? Portantino said. The local assemblyman tossed another proposal into the hopper with a bill to freeze salaries for state employees making $150,000 a year or more.

Surrender Democrats are confused about whether we at war with radical Islam originating in a 2004 year old dysfunctional Middle East or dealing with a group of disparate terrorists who have perpetrated a series of discrete attacks going back to the Iranian hostage crisis of 1979. Either way their choice of response is multilateralism, diplomacy and concession, i.e., appeasement. Republicans, on the other hand, believe this approach led steadily to the disaster we call "9/11."

The killing of six people and the attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Tucson) in Arizona has shaken the city's state and federal representatives, but none has plans to scale back public appearances. "We all have concerns about it. I want to be out on the public and meet constituents, but I'm always conscious of incidents that might occur," said state Sen. Carol Liu (D-La Cañada Flintridge). While she has no specific plans to beef up security, Liu said members of her staff called for help from law enforcement officers several times last year to deal with unruly strangers who found their way into her Glendale district office.
