Letter to the Editor...."Socialism Now?"~by Albert J. Segalla

Posted by: Kim_Hamilton on 08/07/2010 11:25 AM
I tend to think of socialism as government enslavement of the people, violating their natural human rights to life, liberty and property. One of the problems of socialism is the creation of dependency on government for our important needs, such as housing, medical care, food etc. While it is good to have limited government for purposes of defending our natural rights, we all too often ask government to do so much more. We fail to realize that government produces nothing; it can only take from some to give to others. An excellent book on this is the classic: “The Law” by Fredric Bastiat. A must read as he clearly defined human rights.....

Letter to the Editor~by David Tunno of Valley Springs

Posted by: Kim_Hamilton on 08/06/2010 03:36 PM
Valley Springs, CA...This is a story about the difference between the duties of a county government, indeed what it recognizes as its duties, versus how it performs against those measurements. In the end, the readers can determine if the Calaveras County Board of Supervisors (BOS), as currently constituted, reflects what the citizens of this county expect and need from that board. My wife and I chose Calaveras County as our new home last year partially on the view that it was a community one could feel a part of, including ......

"Is Socialism the New American Dream? Letter to The Editor ~by Al Segalla

Posted by: thepinetree on 07/25/2010 12:35 PM
"Is Socialism the New American Dream?.....I tend to think of socialism as government enslavement of the people, violating their natural human rights to life, liberty and property. Proponents of that system would more likely agree with the Wikipedia definition: “Socialism is an economic and political theory based on public or common ownership and cooperative management of the means of production and allocation of resources.” One of the problems of socialism is the creation of dependency on government for our important needs, such as housing, medical care, food etc. While it is good to have limited government for purposes of defending our natural rights, we all too often ask government to do so much more. We fail to realize that government produces nothing; it can only take from some to give to others. An excellent book on this is the classic: “The Law” by Fredric Bastiat.

America's Ruling Class -- And the Perils of Revolution By Angelo M. Codevilla from the July 2010 - August 2010 issue

Posted by: Kim_Hamilton on 07/24/2010 01:53 PM
This opinion piece was sent to us by a viewer..."As over-leveraged investment houses began to fail in September 2008, the leaders of the Republican and Democratic parties, of major corporations, and opinion leaders stretching from the National Review magazine (and the Wall Street Journal) on the right to the Nation magazine on the left, agreed that spending some $700 billion to buy the investors' "toxic assets" was the only alternative to the U.S. economy's "systemic collapse." In this, President George W. Bush and his would-be Republican successor John McCain agreed with the Democratic candidate, Barack Obama. Many, if not most, people around them also agreed upon the eventual commitment of some 10 trillion nonexistent dollars in ways .....

"When Thge Music Stopped" – by Shaelyn Strattan

Posted by: thepinetree on 07/06/2010 02:39 PM
For those who are unaware: At all military base theaters, the National Anthem is played before the movie begins and everyone stands. I have had the opportunity to share this experience, both during my military time and as a civilian working on military bases throughout the U.S. It is an incredibly moving experience, but this tops even that...Shaelyn. This is written by a Chaplain in Iraq ...

"CALAVERAS MEDICAL MARIJUANA DISPENSARIES - A Primer: As we move headlong to the Jay Smith trial and doubtless will be seeing the same aggression against Gus Meyers for his Valley Springs collective, it is time to examine the law. Our county must be braced for the expensive litigation that is going to come our way, not to mention the wasted expense of prosecutions, so where do we stand in terms of the law? When discussing Jay Smith and his collective distribution of medicinal cannabis, the the law, according to the two primary county law enforcement authorities is as follows:....

Letter to the Editor~by Bill McManus

I would like to congratulate Larry Cope and his team of professionals at the Tuolumne County Economic Development Authority on their stunning accomplishment regarding the great news that SPI will be retooling and reopening the mill in Tuolumne County. Many public officials use the national economy as the whipping boy for the plight of their counties in these tough economic times. The TCEDA has once again proven them wrong. The addition of some 130 local jobs once again proves that a well structured partnership between local government and the private sector can benefit everyone....

Thanks again Valley Springs Boosters for putting on a spectacular fireworks display over New Lake Hogan last Saturday.The breeze was wonderful, the moon and it's reflection put on a beautiful display creeping up over the hills just before the commencement of the display. The music was piped up so the hundred or so small boats, with their red, green, and white lights shining could hear the patriotic music during the show.....

Letter to the Editor on Housing Element ~By Cathy Mason

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/24/2010 10:38 AM
Murphys, CA...Watching (on pinetree.net) the Calaveras Board of Supervisors in action on June 22 was very revealing. An important part of the General Plan—the Housing Element was discussed. The public brought up some pivotal points on why the plan was flawed and impinged on basic property owners’ rights. Their questions were answered, if at all, with non-answers. Although the Board appeared to listen, their minds apparently had already been made up. It seemed like the public was talking to a stone wall. The two socialists...
