FREE SPEECH? This attack on conservatives by Christopher Judges of Ventura is the same thing the conservatives say of the crazy left. Very biased, “If you’re not part of the solution you’re part of the problem” mentality. “If you voted for Trump you are a racist.” Then there’s the moral high ground: “Don’’t you care?” What if I care differently? And the biased, lying media fanning the flames of the masses. Don’t fall for this. Most of the conservatives I know have stopped watching the biased, lying “news.” Some people cannot speak out for fear of ridicule, harassment, intimidation...

TIME TO TALK To members of the Pasadena City Council’s Public Safety Committee: Spokeo, a service that provides mass surveillance via social media and public records enhanced for law enforcement, was presented at the City Council’s Public Safety Committee meeting. Our Police Department has been testing it recently for possible acquisition. ACLU welcomes a public opportunity to discuss and debate this new mass surveillance technology before the city’s acquisition. Police departments across the nation are increasing their use of social media software for mass surveillance. But most citizens and elected representatives know nothing about their presence, their use, their...

NO THANKS To members of the Los Angeles City Council: The city of Los Angeles has no idea what the actual costs will be for the 2028 Olympics. Look at Brazil. They will never recover their costs. Brazil was left with complete areas desolate, with no recovery possible. Los Angeles already has enough problems. Why not spend the money on repaving freeways or filling in potholes on city streets, or planting trees in the mountains? We should also cancel the money being wasted on the high-speed bullet train to nowhere. That’s about $300 billion we can save on this...

NOT YET Most of the conservatives I know are the voice of reason. They are generally law-abiding constitutionalists. There are many who agree with the president’s policies and vision of the future for this country. They are not full of rage and they haven’t taken to the streets yet. ~ DEAN ACEVEDO PASADENA MORE QUESTIONS     Thank you for the series of opinion pieces by Alicia Dhanifu. They are short and to the point. They sometimes lead to more questions, which is to be encouraged. I hope the Ellis piece gets some history student engaged (“Almost Impossible: William...

THINK OF OTHERS Self-righteous politicians, corporations, religions and individuals all have the answers to the problems facing America, offering their narrow belief in their own self-righteous ideology as the cure-all. They claim their “truth” supercedes everyone else’s.    They care little for the non-believers they call “others,” whom they exclude and marginalize when their opinions conflict with their own. In their blind self-righteousness they deny the inclusivity of humanity in favor of the “truth” of their own self-righteous, overbearing perspective that disavows the freethinking of “others.” Political conservatives are self-righteous. Their position on everything is: “I am right and...
