To: CityCouncil@tustinca.orgThanks for your attention to this matter.

In brief, the Tustin library has become increasingly unusable for legitimate pusposes, due to the failure to address the problems of various noises making it impossible to concentrate on any serious research. 

Along with the noise issues, there has been a slowly increasing level of related problems, associated largely with the concentration of homeless with obvious mental problems who nevertheless hang on to every ...
What immediately follows is my own take on the discussion concerning problems with licensing more bars or liquor outlets in downtown Santa Ana, in the face of known problems of public drunkeness, under-age drinking and a history of related problems.

People drink because they are in pain or dealing with stress. This "solution" (no pun intended) can work on an occasional or low level - 1-2 drinks per day - but tends to perpetuate the problems, especially when multiple drinks are involved. We kn...

Its all starting to unravel for Obama. Its just going to cascade into one big avalanche for the administration all at once. Benghazi, Fast and Furious, barricading veteran memorials, more than 500 million for the website, more than 500 million for Solyndra, 51 vote party line budget gimmick at midnight Christmas eve to change our nations healthcare, the failed stimulus payoff, using the IRS as Brownshirts to attack Tea party conservatives with audits and delays of tax exempt statu...

I haven't written here for quite a while, but I think that I made it up for in the length of this article. If you are interested enough, you can follow the link to my website for a PDF copy.

I have been having a debate with my friend Jack (shout out!) about the proper way to view Edward Snowden and Bradley Manning. Both young men came into contact with secrets that they felt obligated, for whatever reason, to reveal.  Whether you consider them heroes, traitors or something in the mid...

Its really crazy how far we've come in 5 years on policy in the US, especially on matters of national security. How did we go from liberals calling Bush "Bushitler" for waterboarding the mastermind of 911, to blowing American citizens to bits in drone strikes ordered by the executive branch? Obviously, the outrage over waterboarding was insincere and feigned. Its not the first selective outrage displayed by the intellectually dishonest American left and it wont be the last.

I thought wate...

   I had heard about this disturbing fact from my Democratic neighbors, the Waltons (or so they say?), at last month's  town hall meeting. I live in a little town called Normal, Illinois. We had called a special meeting to discuss the new name for our town that had been decided upon in last November's elections. The tension created by the new Normal naming was far greater than that created by the presidential contest, don't you know. They, my democratic neighbors, were...

Looks like Obama is about to deliver another State of the Union address. Well, he'll have to deliver it to his robot fanboys in the Democratic States of America cause I'd rather have root canal than listen to him. Its really depressing. You know our country is so broke it cant even deliver our mail on Saturday? But it isn't too broke to give Egyptian Brotherhood Islamists who would saw off our heads with dull butter knives if given the opportunity, multi million dollar tanks and F-16...

Just received my humanitarian visa for South Sudan from an embassy employee in my hotel.

Actually it is worse than that.  But first to the story (or non-story for the MSM).  All hail savior Obama!  Restorer of the Middle Class tax cut!

The problem is he restored nothing.  He did not raise that tax.  But he did raise another - that of course the media is ignoring.  The Payroll tax.

The payroll tax cut was 2%, until Obama raised the tax.  But it really is a lot more.

When they cut income taxes X%, you do not see an increase in your paycheck ...

Its a shame the Democrats have chosen to exploit the Newton, Connecticut shooting in a naked attempt to advance a totalitarian vision they've had on their plates for quite some time... to strip the people of their guns and constitutional rights.

In all honesty, there are no new laws that would have prevented young Mr. Lanza, who was a determined and psychotic criminal from slaying his mother, or anyone else who would have gotten in his way to commit his acts, but this reality doesn't ...

In the current news cycle, we have this headline: Obama: Not raising the debt ceiling 'is absurd'.

Oh, but I agree on that thought completely - not raising the debt ceiling would be stupid, idiotic, moronic, and a host of other names that signify how ignorant things could wind up, which is precisely why the debt ceiling will be raised.  The question is by how much, and how fast will that raise in the ceiling come.

It's there that Mr. President will wind up having to slow d...

I had wondered, along with everyone else of course, what the NRA's response to the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting (in Newtown CT) was going to be, as they sat back quietly.  Would their response be cautious and reflective, or would it be arrogance?  Would they make bold moves towards reigning in gun violence, or would they point the finger at others and deny that guns are possibly part of the problem?

Days later, of course (as I took a little time after their response to ...
