The No. 1 priority of government is self-preservation, and their first obligation is to its citizens who have consented to be governed and for whom the government itself exists. If these factors are not enforced then the government becomes illegitimate.

I’ve been very concerned for many years — even before King Obama — about the state of our nation and the constant assault on our individual liberties. President Wilson, a racist bigot, started the march of the supremacy of the state over the primacy of the individual. FDR enlarged it a hundredfold with Johnson, Nixon, Carter, the Bushes and Clinton following suit, either ignoring the individual rights under our Constitution or breaking with it outright.

This is an open letter to Gov. Jerry Brown: Well, governor, hang on to your hat for what I am about to tell you. You asked for and received a tax increase. You shifted the cost of incarceration from the state to county responsibility — a lot of money is saved by doing so. The legislature wants to spend all this money like a kid in a candy store. And now you shove the twin tunnels down our throat and the cost of high-speed rail misrepresented.

Seems to me Detroit's declaration of bankruptcy — like Stockton's and San Bernardino's — is a threat to the very foundation of the nation.

On Jan. 16, Obama signed 23 presidential orders into law that attack law-abiding citizens, basically telling us that if he can save one child, all these laws will be worth it. And of course he had several children about him to bring home the message.

I am commenting on "Politicians
trying to remove Second Amendment rights" (Nov. 16). Without
any criticism for the writer, I am mostly interested in the title,
which purports that the constitution grants a right. Also, the
writer criticizes that politicians seek to take guns away from
law-abiding "citizens." (What is a "citizen"?)

First, let me say that my reaction and response to the article
on Sept. 1 is not about race or nationality, but it is about
illegal residency in California and the United States. Legal
immigration built this country, and I am all for everyone in
pursuit of the American Dream. However, I strongly oppose those who
are here illegally because they never pledge their true allegiance
to our country, our ideals and our way of life. They are entitled

Along a hot, empty road on the outskirts of Galt, Virtue Calves
seems isolated from the rest of the world, save for the hundred or
so calves that lounge in a corral behind a quiet home.

Pardon me, but on Sept. 22, "Letter displays intolerance ..."
states, "secede from the Union and begin their own island country."
I thought this point was understood already, because I probably
wrote about this twice already.

Q: I'm a tenant in a large apartment complex. Management
regularly allows residents to rent out the clubhouse for private
parties, and I'd like to do so for a graduation celebration for our
son. The contract they handed me includes a provision giving them
the right to administer breath tests to guests, and to even pat
them down if security thinks it's warranted. I think these acts are
grossly invasive of our privacy, and I'm wondering if they're
legal. -Beth S.

The main objective of our proposal is to break the back of the
financial crisis by sharply reducing mortgage foreclosures while
liquefying a major part of the existing mortgage stock. A second
purpose is to provide the foundation for a more stable housing
finance system in the future.
