Is America falling apart? Are we, as a nation of people, experiencing an era of great decline? This is a most disturbing notion that moves us out of our ‘comfort zone.’ Often it moves us into the arena of anger or, perhaps, even self-denial of what is happening across America today -the random violence, civil unrest, police shootings and fatalities, on both sides. The bloodshed of both law enforcement and citizens.
Black correspondent, Jamelle Bouie, writes: “A week that began with Americans celebrating their best qualities has ended with the country staring into the eyes of its worst self.”
White columnist, Colin Nelson, posted: “Is America Falling Apart?” Then, wrote a most sad commentary of a country that seems to be sagging at its knees. 74% of all Americans polled strongly believe our country is in great decline. According to The Washington Times, “Many voters reveal they have a gnawing fear that the America they know and revere is slipping away, along with civility and civic engagement.”
Regardless of race, ethnicity, cultural persuasion, political leanings, and religious backgrounds, there seems to be a common meeting point that all is not well. For one of the few times in a multi-cultural scenario, there seems to be no division of thinking, no color barrier, no religious affiliations, that disagrees with the severity of concern that our country is now facing. All rational minds comprehend that there is a powder-keg of a problem in our beautiful country. And even during the intervening moments of calm and quiet, therein rests a coiled spring ready to, again, snap in unpredictable, often deadly, fashion. It has happened countless times before and it will most assuredly happen again. It is only a matter of time.
Various polls appear to show that the majority of Americans today strongly believe that their American culture is deteriorating. On top of that, many citizens clearly feel alienated and helpless in trying to salvage their own country’s values, honesty, and respect. Researchers found that most Americans feel powerless and frustrated because -- in their own opinions -- their elected politicians, repeatedly let them down once they attained office. Mark Twain made the observation that still stands the test of time, “Have you noticed that no The Paper - 760.747.7119
matter who we elect, they are just as bad as the one they replaced?”
Such polls strongly suggest that more Americans not only distrust our political leaders to represent our best interests but, many do not believe that the U. S. Government truly cares and understands the problems Americans face today. American comedian, Groucho Marx, said it long ago, “Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.” If it is true what the ancient philosophers strongly believed – that comedy and tragedy in life are often inextricably one -- then the prior statements of Mark Twain and Groucho Marx hold fast and true in our country today.

That America faces grave social problems is beyond question, at least to the rational mind. Where there is a division of thinking lies at the core of the problem: what is the cause or causes behind our growing civil unrest, from coast to coast? In essence, what are the reasons behind our socio-political-racial-moral-economic frustrations that are leading us all down a path of widespread rebellion, random police assassinations, and unleashed anger that refuses to remain bottled-up? Therein lies the fundamental problem – why is this happening? We define it in different ways. We define different causes and, therefore, different solutions and so, in the end, there is no reconciliation which is agreeable to all. Past episodes have taught us as much. Each time there
is civil unrest, racial disturbance, or police shootings, liberty and equality under the law is viewed through different eyes resulting in a deadly clash of ideologies.
Over 150 years ago, Abraham Lincoln once said a fundamental truth that refuses to evaporate with the passage of time; instead, it eerily fits our current cultural dilemma like a Biblical prophecy: “The world has never had a good definition of the word liberty, and the American people, just now, are much in want of one. We all declare for liberty; but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing.”
And so it is today. Finger-pointing and post police-shooting-evaluations, for example, all define liberty and right-from-wrong-behavior in diametrically opposed definitions. As

the Great Emancipator wisely noted, we all use the same words, but with totally different meanings.
Another example, when serious researchers claimed to have found an unbiased truth that “Hispanic immigrants have lower IQ’s than the earlier 20th-century European immigrants,” their findings were said to be racists by various minority groups. The researchers, themselves, were also called upon to formally resign their posts. What may have been a fortuitous opportunity to identify and correct an educational deficiency in our culture was, instead, abandoned in the name of racism and stereotyping.
Many believe that part of the ongoing cultural decline in America is our country’s inability to face, or be allowed to face, or study, its problems straight-on, such as any research into the deterioration of cultural, political, educational, or moral values that might seem uncomfortable to some segments of society. This presents a problem within a problem, which prohibits unreserved honesty in seeking any plausible solution. As one social commentator phrased it, “The first step in solving any problem is recognizing there is one.”
In the opinion of many social observers, it seems a dismal predicament that slowly, little by little, our

liberties and birthrights are slowly being taken away. What happens, they wonder, when most Americans reach that saturation point, when they feel totally powerless to shape their own lives and their elected officials turn away from their platform promises? Collectively, as a varied people today, we may no longer be able to recognize common truth and justice, even if it were to walk up and stare us directly in the face. Exaggeration? Hmm, perhaps not.
As a test, researchers went out on the public streets and read various passages to random segments of the population from various socio-economic and racial backgrounds. The polls were replicated (repeated) to ensure minimal error and the majority of people polled said that such readings – which the pollsters had recited to them – all were antiAmerican and violent and sounded like a plot to overthrow our own country.
Most every person polled was shocked into disbelief when informed that the passages they heard were direct quotations from our Constitutional Founding Fathers – that were made even after we gained our freedom from the Revolutionary War (1775-1783).
Years after American freedom was won from England, Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) and his copatriots were steadfast in their ongo-

ing belief that our new country would forever need occasional rebellion to keep its politics and politicians clean and honest. They were no fools; but visionaries of the first order.
“God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion (within our own country). The people cannot be all, and always, well informed,” Thomas Jefferson warned us all, past to present. Jefferson’s remarks are so extraordinary and modern that such words refuse to be retrained by the parameters of his own era. So much so that people today did not recognize their inherent wisdom and truth in the experimental poll but, instead, found his remarks to be viewed as “dangerous,” and “anti-American,” and which openly advocated the overthrow of the United States! However, when informed that this was a common sentiment with our Founding Fathers, the people polled suddenly reversed their long-held prejudice. They said they had “prejudged” the remarks, but after contemplating them – and who had voiced them – now, were in full agreement. Remarkable.
But, the great American and patriot, Thomas Jefferson, the Father of us all, wasn’t done. He was just getting warmed-up in the bullpen and knocking the dirt from his cleats with his bat – his political bat, which was on fire.

"Preposition: An enormously versatile part of grammar, as in 'What made you pick this book I didn't want to be read to out of up for?'" ~ Winston Churchill ~ "There would be no population explosion if people who are trying to keep the wolf from the door wouldn't let the stork fly in through the window." ~ Evan Esar ~ "Some girls fight against being caressed, while others take it lying down." ~ Anon ~ Advice from a Retired Husband:
It is important for men to remember that, as women grow older, it becomes harder for them to maintain the same quality of housekeeping as when they were younger. When you notice this, try not to yell at them. Some are oversensitive, and there's nothing worse than an oversensitive woman. Let me relate how I handled the situation with my wife. When I retired a
“If they (the people) remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty . . . . What country ever existed a century and half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?”
It is true, today, that politicians are the least-trusted professional gathering by the American people, almost to a 100% consensus. Broken promises, shattered dreams, and feelings of futility and helplessness seem the zeitgeist of the common citizen today.
Jefferson’s words no longer seem strange and distant. Rather, they resemble a clarion calling for today’s political leaders to return to honesty, decency, and responsible ownership to which we entrusted them with. And like the great Bambino, the Sultan of Swat, the great Babe Ruth, Thomas Jefferson pointed with finger to the far political fences in defiance with all known logic and common sense and uttered a most revolutionary and dangerous truth: “Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.” (Jefferson, in a letter to William Stephens Smith (13 November 1787,) quoted in “Jefferson On

few years ago, it became necessary for my wife to get a full-time job, along with her part-time job, both for extra income and for the health benefits that we needed. Shortly after she started working, I noticed she was beginning to show her age. I usually get home from the golf club about the same time she gets home from work.
Although she knows how hungry I am, she almost always says she has to rest for half an hour or so before she starts dinner. I don't yell at her. Instead, I tell her to take her time and just wake me when she gets dinner on the table. I generally have lunch in the Men's Grill at the club, so eating out is not reasonable. I'm ready for some home-cooked grub when I hit that door. She used to do the dishes as soon as we finished eating. But now it's not unusual for them to sit on the table for several hours after dinner. I do what I can by diplomatically reminding her several times each evening that they won't clean themselves. I know she really appreciates this, as it does seem to motivate her to get them done before she goes to bed.
Another symptom of aging is complaining I think; for example, she will say that it is difficult for her to find time to pay the monthly bills during her lunch hour. But, Boys, we take 'em for better or worse, so I just smile and offer encouragement. I tell her to stretch it out over two, or even three days. That way, she won't have to rush so much.

Our Founding Fathers did not trust political governments, even their own, if left unattended and especially without the voices of the people behind it. Because the nature of the beast (politics and politicians) is that it will, eventually, fall to corruption. Of that, there is no doubt. Except for the very naïve.
English historian, politician, and writer, Sir John Dalberg (1834-1902), uttered a most frightening axiom. Frightening, because it is a truism which is alive and well today. Dalberg said, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” (Dalberg, in a letter to Bishop Mandell Creighton in 1887.)
Today, in 2016 – and soon turning the year book -- almost 140 years after Dalberg’s dismal remark about corruption in high places, Americans by their own free choice rank politicians, lawyers, and car salesmen at the bottom of the heap as the most dishonest group of human flesh gathered in any one place. In the opinion of many, if politicians, lawyers, and demagogues were to remove themselves from the equation and only let the American people, themselves, speak their minds – Capitol Hill would get an unfiltered

As one report has it, “The public’s trust in the federal government continues to be at historically low levels. Only 19% of Americans today say they can trust the government in Washington to do what is right.”
Regarding the American people trusting the U. S. Government “almost always” to intervene, protect, and serve them (the public) to their best interest – the American trust level sadly falls to an unbelievable 3%. The poll was repeated, across America, for minimal error. Historically, the public’s trust in the federal government began to erode exponentially since the 1960s. The trend of distrust continued. “Fewer than three in ten Americans have expressed trust in the federal government in every major national poll conducted since July 2007 – the longest period of low trust in government in more than 50 years.” (Pew Research Center.)
Ever since President John F. Kennedy was assassinated (which traumatized an entire nation), Americans, to this day, still do not believe the U. S. Government (from top to bottom) has ever come clean in telling them the entire truth. And for that long-standing reason alone, there lies a deeply entrenched schism of trust which may never, ever be healed, in the opinion of many. The Kennedy assassination remains

The Paper • Page 4 • November 10, 2016 Structure Fire Leads Investigators to Drug Arrest
On November 3, investigators from the City of Carlsbad Police Department arrested 33-year-old Jesse Estes for manufacturing a controlled substance and possession of marijuana for sale, and booked him into the Vista Detention Facility. On November 2 at 8:58 p.m., officers and investigators were called to the 2200 block of Avenida Magnifica to investigate a suspicious explosion/fire that occurred in an apartment. While trying to contact the residents of the apartment, Estes tried to flee out the third story balcony. Estes was detained by officers who positioned themselves outside of the building.
Through the course of the investigation, Detectives determined that Estes had accidentally created the explosion/fire while trying to extract hash oil from marijuana trimmings through a process that involves the use of a large amount of butane. The explosion/fire caused damage to the interior of the apartment. The resulting fire was extinguished by an occupant of the apartment who used a fire extinguisher.
Arriving Officers and fire personnel noticed a large amount of marijuana in the apartment and paraphernalia used to extract hashish oil. Estes suffered injuries as a result of the explosion/fire and was transported to the hospital.
Estes was released from the hospital on the morning of November 3, prior to being arrested. For more information on hash oil and the dangers of the extraction process please follow this link to information by the Drug Enforcement Administration https://goo.gl/awSKwI.
Officers determined that no evacuations were needed as the fire had been extinguished. No other apartments were damaged. A search of the residence revealed that there was no one inside and two residents had evacuated to the porch.
One of the residents had minor to moderate injuries and was transported to the UCSD burn unit.
Carlsbad Fire Department and Carlsbad Police Department investigators were called to the scene and the cause of the fire is under investigation. Oceanside City Council Candidate Campaign Spending Investigated by the State
Oceanside Councilman Jack Feller has been notified by The California Fair Political Practices Commission that he is under investigation for alleged personal use of campaign funds.
Campaign finance reports show Feller collected $4,452 in 13 payments between June 2014 and July of this year — all described as reimbursements for “expenses,” “officeholder expenses,” and “civic contributions.” State law allows officeholders to receive reimbursement from campaigns for “officeholder expenses,” under certain specific conditions and only if the expenditure was directly related to political, legislative or governmental activity. A campaign may make charitable donations, but the donations may not personally benefit the officeholder, candidate, committee treasurer, any person with authority to approve the expenditure of campaign funds, or any such person’s spouse or dependent children. Personal spending of campaign money is forbidden under state law to avoid undue influence by contributors.

Thanks . . . and an apoogy:
Thank you to all who so kindly sent birthday wishes, once again reminding me of the fact that I have become ancient and probably only have a limited number of years left on this planet. Reminds me of when I called the Urology Clinic and they said, "Can you hold?" And I said . . . "Nooooooooo!"
Two days later I was in a medical office. The examiner had just finished a prostate exam and then left the room.
Then the nurse came in and said the words no man wants to hear . . . "who was that guy?" Bette Davis said it best: "Growing old
To all of those who live within my neighborhood, I deeply apologize if the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, all of whom had gathered on my front lawn to serenade me on my birthday, disturbed your slumber. I had no idea they were coming. Nor did I know about the USMC Marching Band and their John Phillip Sousa serenade which followed the Tabernacle folks. Then, when Celine Dion stood in my driveway and sang for me . . . well, the entire neighborhood went nuts! Everyone wanted her autograph but, understandably, she had only eyes for me. So . . . again, my most humble apology. It will not happen again. Until next year.

••••• Congratulations to Alex MacLachlan on another brilliantly successful Escondido Tamale Festival!
We attended this past Saturday, leisurely meandering about Escndido’s Grape Day Park, noting the long lines at several tamale vendors, seeing many other vendors for both food, drink, novelties, clothes, something for everyone, it seemed.
Since January 2014, Feller’s campaign has raised about $58,000, according to finance reports. Top contributors include Howard Jacobs of the real estate company GK Asset Management, who contributed a total $5,500; California Teamsters Public Affairs Council political action committee, which gave $4,000; and people employed by Integral Communities, a real estate development company. In 2011, the FPPC investigated Feller’s campaign and found that he violated state law when he failed to report more than $4,000 in gambling earnings as income. The investigation ended with a warning letter to Feller. He was not fined or prosecuted. Veteran’s Day Ceremonies in North County

We bought a couple trays of pork tip bbq’s - quite tasty. $10 for a large tray, $5 for the small. The small is the better buy (or two smalls) as there is less bone and gristle on the small ones. You got about as much meat on the large one as the small one once you eliminated the bone, fat and gristle. Still, quite tasty.
Also got a couple of large lemonades. Again, tasty, but also very pricey. $5 for what appeared to be an 16 oz cup The “small” was $4 and it looked like about an 12 oz. cup. Still, it’s not that often we overpay for a product . . . so we lived with it and enjoyed the sweet taste of lemonade on a lovely Saturday afternoon, with mild temperatures and lots of good natured visitors, both local and from out of town.
Looking forward already to next year’s Escondido Tamale Festival! ••••• I absolutely hate this “spring forward, fall back” clock business. What idiot dreamed up this idea? And what idiot Congress approved it?
From the early, humorous musings of Benjamin Franklin to the first widespread implementation of daylight savings during World War I and into the present day, observing DST has had a foundation in energy savings. "Everywhere there is air conditioning, our evidence suggests that daylight saving is a loser," said one sci-

entist. It's clear that DST doesn't save energy in the big picture.
For some reason, many Americans grew up believing that the practice was adopted for farmers. "That's the complete inverse of what's true," said another scientist. "The farmers were the only organized lobby against daylight saving in the history of the country," he said, explaining that the practice left them with an hour less sunlight to get crops to market.
"The farmers were the reason we never had a peacetime daylight saving time until 1966. They had a powerful lobby and were against it vociferously." Many farmers still don't like DST, including some dairy farmers, who find that cows' natural milking schedules don't adapt easily to a sudden shift. It also upsets our cicadian rhythm thus interfering with our normal sleep patterns. There is some evidence to show an increase in heart attacks on Mondays and Tuesdays, following a DST time shift.
Many PTA’s and educators are against it because of the element of safety for schoolchildren.
This means that our sunrise times are so late that schoolchildren are out on dark streets in the morning, and that raises objections among parents of schoolchildren. It just doesn’t make sense to me. Nor to those who live in Arizona. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

an indelible gut-wrenching episode in the great American consciousness which refuses to dissipate. And, in the opinion of most, the longer the years pass without forthright honesty on behalf of the U. S. Government, the more the American people may wish to rebel, as Jefferson counseled, 229 years ago. Over 53 years after his death, national polls repeatedly show that many Americans steadfastly believe in a government cover-up in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. Such deep mistrust is passed, like a torch, from one generation to the next as school kids and college students grow into their adult years.
Whether there was a conspiracy or not, the continued widespread suspicions reflect an American people who still remain ill at ease with their own U. S. Government. In 2016, this national mistrust remains unhealed. To this day Americans revealed their suspicions of wrongdoing, some even suspecting a conspiracy coverup involving the Mafia, Cuba, the CIA or other powerful entity. Shockingly, even our own federal government is suspected as complicit in the Kennedy assassination (13%). This is an unprecedented mistrust from the general public of their governing officials in Congress and the White House. Trust levels rebounded, somewhat, in
the 1980s before falling again in the 1990s.
Americans have long taken stabs at political wrongdoing in high places in their lineage of jokes. “A politician is just like a pickpocket; it’s almost impossible to get one to reform,” Mark Twain once remarked. Twain long removed his blinkers and aired America’s feelings along with his own: “Loyalty to country always. Loyalty to government, when it deserves it.” Americans didn’t condemn Twain, they encouraged him, but Mark Twain refused credit for his witticism and gave credit where he felt credit was due: “There’s no trick being a humorist when you have the entire government working for you.”
Politics and politicians have long been a dirty game, at least that is what historical figures have long said. It was Napoleon Bonaparte who said, “In politics, stupidity is not a handicap.” The question of America falling apart in its values, morals, education, and politics is a topic of discussion in other countries, including China, all observing us from afar. According to cultural pundit, Noam Chomsky, many Americans themselves believe “an irreversible decline” has begun in the United States, and that the world is entering a “post-American Era.” Once a supreme superpower with undisputed worldwide influence, America no longer resembles its former self. America now ranks a pathetic 14th in education, compared to other countries. In literacy, the U. S. now sags to a lowly 24th, pum-
meled by China, Japan, South Korea, and even by our own European cousins, such as Ireland, Finland, and Poland. Perhaps the saddest rating of all, the “Index of Ignorance,” America was near rock-bottom. This, according to the Program for International Student Assessment. Independent worldwide studies from abroad confirmed the dismal findings: scientists and carefully-controlled, repeated research, revealed the U. S. ranked 27th in math and 20th in science. Once a giant on this spinning blue marble, we are now the butt of international jokes.
America has vastly changed down through the decades. Fundamental changes in schools, language, attitudes, as well as tolerance and behavior, all make up a kaleidoscope of changing values in our country today. Entrenched values have undergone major shifting, as if from a massive socio-earthquake. A new 2016 poll on American values showed that “Americans, themselves, have less faith in Washington, Wall Street, and even God.” All of which is causing an upheaval of behavior. And random acts of intolerance towards one another. So say the experts.
If we are to survive as a nation of people, we need a defense against further American decline and erosion of tolerance and civility. Lincoln already wrote of it, 153 years deep in our history books: “At what point shall
we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it? At what point then is the danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we ourselves must be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men, we must live through all times, or die by suicide.”
There is no question that American values are vastly different today, and not just incrementally different as expected with normal cultural evolutionary changes. Of this, Americans are in vast agreement. Most Americans agree that everyday manners and courtesy and civility in language have not slowly eroded but have dropped off a precipice, quickly and sharply.
Interviews and extensive polls on March 17 and March 21 during 2016, with adults 18 and over, representing the 50 states and the District of Columbia, have revealed that 74% of all Americans believe that “Manners and behavior have deteriorated in the United States over the past decades.” And most felt that political leaders should step up to the plate and take adequate responsibility, in our schools, our education system, our police laws, our overall cultural fabric which constitutes law and order in our country: “A large majority believe that politicians should be held to a higher standard than the general public.”

In 1950 America, gum chewing and unauthorized talking in class were among the major disciplinary problems in schools. In 2016, many of our schools have been equipped with metal detectors because of increasing violence with knives and guns, both resulting in fatalities in our schools across our nation.
Occasional schoolyard fighting, smoking, and littering on school grounds in yesteryear are now replaced with teenage pregnancies – in some cases, pre-teen pregnancies – as well as drug dealings, necessitating police presence on some elementary and junior high school premises. The Associated Press poll of the Center for Public Affairs Research found that close to 80% of all Americans agree that use of profanity in public is widespread. “A crosssection of the American public from various racial and ethnic backgrounds say that the use of the “f ” word is heard almost daily, from both teens and adults.” The use of verbal obscenity in public is growing exponentially. As such, “The number of Americans who say the nation’s moral values are in decline grew by 5 percent last year. Other reasons Americans mentioned were a rise in crime, a breakdown of the two-parent family and a moving away from religion or God.” In regards to language obscenity, this is a far cry from language usage in

The city of Escondido has received plans to build 392 houses on the former Escondido Country Club golf course from New Urban West who has an agreement in place that if the city of Escondido approves the plans, they will buy the Country Club land from Michael Schlesinger, who had chosen this developer from among a list of over a dozen applicants. The project has been loaded with controversy ever since it was acquired by Schlesinger. Area residents, upset at the loss of their golf course, which was not in the plans under Schlesinger nor from Urban West, and at the increased density have fought the project from the beginning.
The 109-acre golf course had been surrounding many of these neighbors homes and still maintain opposition to development plans, arguing “The Villages” as the new project is called, is still too dense. There are some homeowners who support the project, arguing that, when built, it will eliminate the overgrown eyesore the golf course has become and will increase their property values.
It will be at least a year before the Environmental Review process is complete, say Escondido officials. There is an outside possibility City Council members may be able to vote on the project by the end of 2017 or early 2018. New Urban West is proposing three architecturally unique villages on the property, with 327 separate housing parcels. Most of the lots will contain single-family detached houses, but there will also be dozens of attached town homes. Surrounding the entire project will be a
1952 America when television censors first prohibited the word “pregnant” from being used on the “I Love Lucy” show (Season two, episode 10, originally aired on 12/8/1952). The show was delicately titled, “Lucy Is Enceinte.” The word ‘pregnant’ or ‘pregnancy’ was banned as too sexually offensive, relegating the dialogue, for example, to instead read: “Look! They’re having a baby . . .”
Such word censorship continued into the 1960s with visual guideline for television’s “Gilligan’s Island,” when character, Mary Ann, was prohibited in showing her navel to viewers. Same censorship transpired for Barbara Eden, who was not allowed to show her navel while starring in “I Dream of Jeannie.” Such visual and verbal censorship is laughed at from today’s youth. In contrast, today’s television-viewers (children included) can hear a variety of uncensored language on everyday television.
Americans blame our governing bodies for the deterioration of the nation’s moral values on such permissiveness found on television, movies, video games, and subsequent real-life behavior. “Americans remain far more likely to say the state of moral values in the U. S. is getting worse (73%) than to say it is getting better (20%). Over a 15-year trend, solid majorities have consistently viewed the direction of the country’s values negatively,” according to Justin McCarthy, a Gallup Poll analyst and expert. greenbelt to separate the new homes from existing ones that line the former golf-course fairways. Four miles of trails will meander through the greenbelt, and the project will also feature a rebuilt resort-style clubhouse, swimming pool, restaurant and other amenities.
Schlesinger had bought the financially struggling golf course in 2012, shuttered it and announced plans to build about 600 houses, launching a bitter fight with area homeowners that spread to city hall and eventually the courts.

Again, governmental leadership is brought into the fray by public acclamation for not setting better examples, especially, for the younger generation to emulate: “A majority of Americans believe that politicians and government leadership should be held accountable for such television viewing.” Instead of intervention, the U. S. Government is viewed by the publicat-large as being part of the problem, itself, in immoral and unethical behavior: “Half or roughly 53% of the general public views the Presidential nominations and campaigns as somewhat rude and disrespectful.” And also, “Two thirds (68%) see political campaigns this year as outdoing the public in levels of rudeness.” If the American public, as polled, feel little confidence in entrusting their political leaders to take care of them, where does this lead them? Many view their elected leaders as a joke. American cowpoke and social commentator, Will Rogers, gave a long-ago review, “Everything is changing. People are taking their comedians seriously, and the politicians as a joke, when it used to be vice versa.”
To many observers, the language, attitude, and intolerance which children show today is often what they see on television, movies, and in the real world around them. They are familiar with the obscenities that they hear on a daily basis, and they understand what “Road Rage” is, in their growing-up years. Their formative years, which create lifelong characteristics.
Support for Working Families
Working families in California face a daily struggle to make ends meet and provide their children with a home, education, food and recreational opportunities. I have championed a long list of bills to assist working families, including legislation to eliminate the sales tax for the purchase of water efficient home appliances by low income people, to expand the renter’s tax credit, and to create a property tax exemption for disabled veterans. The earned income tax credit (EITC), which helps working families get some money back at the end of the year, was signed into law, while a bill allowing employees and employers to agree on flexible work schedules died in the Senate. Protecting children is a priority, and my very first bill that became law increased penalties on the use of government-owned technology to produce or distribute child pornography, including library computers and smart phones. I supported legislation granting local jurisdictions more
Former San Diego radio talk show host, Rick Roberts, now of WBAP in Dallas, Texas, seems to have his pulse on Americans, today. His show is among the most popular with a growing number of listeners who strongly agree with his sociopolitical views. Roberts voices his anthem phrase, “I Want My Country Back!” and he does it with great public approbation. Roberts even encourages his refrain message, “I Want My Country Back!” to be posted on all websites. Says Roberts, “I want my country back. I want my kids to be able to walk to the store or walk to school without being abducted by some 3-time convicted child molester. And the politically-correct powers that be in this country, the hug-a-tree experts – you are NOT qualified to release sex offenders back into our neighborhoods! But, yet they’re let loose to prey on more children!”
This particular day, Roberts is just starting to hit his stride, “I want my country back. I want some semblance of respect for authority, whether I agree with it all or not. I want the Boy Scouts to be ‘Boy’ scouts, not Boy and “we think she’s a girl” Scouts. I want Girl Scouts to be ‘girl’ scouts, not Girl Scouts and ‘Bruce.’ I want to be able to wake up in the morning knowing that I can walk outside without some gang-banger on parole taking my life!” Rick Roberts’ outcry is met with

authority regarding placement of registered sex offenders in their communities, and prohibiting judges from giving students' Social Security numbers to third parties, which happened last year. I also supported expanding services for runaway and homeless youth and legislation to enhance awareness of child abuse and human trafficking.
Healthcare is another problem faced by working families struggling to keep up with premiums. I supported legislation to require health plans to cover hearing aids for children and to increase Denti-Cal provider reimbursements for better access to care. To further improve patient access, I supported a bill allowing parents insured through Covered California, with children on Medi-Cal, to pay a fee to add their children to their Covered California plan. Unfortunately this bill died in the Assembly Health committee. I will continue to look out for you in Sacramento after the new session begins in January.

growing numbers each day who hear their own voice within his. They understand and feel empathy for Roberts’ angst. Roberts does not disappoint, “I want my politicians, when they finally do get my vote, to do what the #%!* they said they were going to do in the first place!” The pulse of Americans who strive to make their lives richer by working harder seem to gravitate towards Roberts’ fiery brand of deliverance, “I want my country back. I want my children back. I want us to secure our borders because the country is worth securing. The people that live here are worth protecting. I want some semblance of what this country used to be. It’s worth protecting. It’s worth defending.” Like a clarion calling from the wilderness, Rick Roberts draws huge numbers from around the United States, who recognize his voice. They, also, resonate with full empathy. His words fall upon those who have no forum to voice the same opinion: “I don’t recognize this country anymore. Not politically, not philosophically, not spiritually. Whether you like it or whether you don’t, God was a part of building this great nation. To remove Him is to take away the very foundation of what this country was all about!” Rick Roberts’ voice is not new to me. I listened with fascination when he worked at San Diego’s radio station 760 KFMB. Agree or disagree, his voice reflects a living, breathing American who strongly adheres to his First Amendment Rights of free speech: “I want my country back. I want to be able to go out and work and make a decent wage and buy a home. Half the people that are listening to me right now can’t even afford to buy a house unless they’re working three jobs!”
The volition of listeners to freely turn the dial and change the station is, among his vast listenership, unthinkable. Roberts is on a roll, and they are loving each rising crest of passion: “And the only way I’m ever going to be able to get this country back is if I reach out to the brothers and the sisters that all feel the same way and we say hell no! You can’t have my country! It’s not for sale! Take the price tag off this country!” Rising to an impassioned crescendo, Rick Roberts gives us his unfiltered truth, whether we agree or not, “I want my country back. Take the price tag off the heads of our children! If you want to come to this country, we welcome you with open arms. We simply ask that you abide by our laws. I don’t want you to snub your nose at our laws, then take advantage of our opportunities, and then cling to the Constitution, most of which you can’t even read because you don’t speak the language!!” On this hot Dallas day, Roberts is on fire, and he makes a lawful request, “The southern border, more than any other border, needs to be secured tomorrow. For all those that wish to come to this country to take advantage of her opportunity, to live under our Constitution, a living document that breathes in-and-out just like you do, this country is not for sale!”
Rick Roberts relaxes enough to finish
off his remarks with a simple plea, “I want my country back. It’s not for sale. I should know. I’m one of the owners. You can’t sell it without my permission.”
Then, it all ends, as quickly as it began. Another day on the radio airwaves. In a vast democratic country with a rainbow of people, from different backgrounds, cultural identities, and religious affiliations, Rick Roberts, unlike many, is free, without restraints. Countless people, all together, hear the final decibels of Rick Roberts’ freedom of speech. He ends it, almost quietly, as if in prayer: “I want my country back.”
Mark Twain said something that sounds familiar, today. “There is only one redeeming thing about this whole election. It will be over at sundown, and let everybody pray that it’s not a tie, for we couldn’t go through this thing again.” That rascal, Mark Twain. He died 106 years ago, and yet he speaks so clearly to us, today. If only we would listen.

The Outlaw Who Got Away With It
The older brother of one of America’s most famous outlaws lived in the shadow of Jesse James, yet was right alongside in most of the notorious exploits from the Civil War through their bank and train robbing days. While Jesse paid the ultimate price, Frank lived to be an old man in relative freedom.
employees or citizens. The most famous incident was the disastrous Northfield, Minnesota, raid on Sept. 7, 1876, that ended with the death or capture of most of the gang.
In 1882, five months after the killing of his brother Jesse, Frank boarded a train for Jefferson City, Mo., where he had an appointment with the governor in the state capitol. Placing his holster in Governor Crittenden's hands, he explained, “I have been hunted for 21 years, have literally lived in the saddle, have never known a day of perfect peace. It was one long, anxious, inexorable, eternal vigil.” He then ended his statement by saying, “Governor, I haven't let another man touch my gun since 1861.” Accounts say that James surrendered with the understanding that he would not be extradited to Northfield, Minnesota.
The popular myth has Frank James as the good brother who followed Jesse in most of his criminal activities, but he had his share of criminal activity starting with the Civil War as he rode with the notorious Confederate guerrilla leader, William Clarke Quantrill.

Born Jan. 10, 1843, Alexander Franklin "Frank" James’ birthplace was Kearney, Mo., a small farming community just north of Kansas City. As a child, James showed interest in his late father's sizable library, especially the works of William Shakespeare. Census records show that James attended school regularly, and he reportedly wanted to become a teacher.
The American Civil War began in 1861, when James was 18 years old. On Sept. 13, 1861, the Missouri State Guard, including Private Frank James, besieged Lexington, Mo. James fell ill and was left behind when the Confederate forces later retreated. He surrendered to the Union troops, was paroled, and was allowed to return home. By early 1863, Frank had joined the guerrilla band led by William Clarke Quantrill. Frank took part with Quantrill's company in the Aug. 21, 1863 Lawrence (Kansas) Massacre where approximately 200 mostly unarmed civilians were killed.
After the war, Frank was arrested and paroled July 27, 1865, in Nelson County, Ky. He reportedly was involved in a gunfight with four soldiers which resulted in two soldiers killed, one soldier wounded, and Frank wounded in the hip. However, there is an alternative account that claims in the autumn of 1865, Frank was suspected of stealing horses in Ohio and that Frank shot two members of a posse and escaped. During his years as a bandit, James was involved in at least four robberies between 1868 and 1876 that resulted in the deaths of bank
He was tried for only two of the robberies/murders – one in Gallatin, Mo., for the July 15, 1881, robbery of the Rock Island train at Winston, Mo., in which the train engineer and a passenger were killed, and the other in Huntsville, Ala.. for the March 11, 1881, robbery of a United States Army Corps of Engineers payroll at Muscle Shoals, Ala. Among others, former Confederate General Joseph Orville Shelby testified on James' behalf in the Missouri trial. Frank was acquitted in both Missouri and Alabama. Missouri accepted legal jurisdiction over him for other charges, but they never came to trial. He was never extradited to Minnesota for his connection with the Northfield Raid.
In the last 30 years of his life, James worked a variety of jobs, from shoe salesman to a Burlesque theater ticket-taker in St. Louis. He also served as an AT&T telegraph operator in St. Joseph, Mo. James took up the lecture circuit, while residing in Sherman, Texas. The Tacoma Times reported in July, 1914 that he was picking berries at a local ranch in Washington state and planned to buy a farm nearby. In his final years, James returned to the James Farm in Missouri, giving tours for the sum of 25 cents. He died there on Feb. 18, 1915, aged 72 years. He left behind his wife Annie Ralston James and one son. Tom Morrow's books are available at Amazon.com in soft-cover or via Kindle E-mail.

To the citizens of the United States of America from Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II In light of your failure in recent years to nominate competent candidates for President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately. (You should look up 'revocation' in the Oxford English Dictionary.)
Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (except North Dakota, which she does not fancy). Your new Prime Minister, David Cameron, will appoint a Governor for America without the need for further elections.
Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be circulated next year to determine whether any of you noticed.
To aid in the transition to a British Crown dependency, the following rules are introduced with immediate effect: 1. The letter 'U' will be reinstated in words such as 'colour,' 'favour,' 'labour' and 'neighbour.' Likewise, you will learn to spell 'doughnut' without skipping half the letters, and

2. Using the same twenty-seven words interspersed with filler noises such as ''like' and 'you know' is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication. There is no such thing as U.S. English. We will let Microsoft know on your behalf. The Microsoft spell-checker will be adjusted to take into account the reinstated letter 'u'' and the elimination of '-ize.' 3. July 4th will no longer be celebrated as a holiday.

A friend and co-worker recently moved to Escondido, leaving behind the vibrant lifestyle of North Park San Diego. She is a young professional – exactly the kind of person the City is hoping to attract. She considered moving to San Marcos but decided to take a close look at Escondido because I speak so highly of it. As she was doing

All intersections will be replaced with roundabouts, and you will start driving on the left side with immediate effect. At the same time, you will go metric with immediate effect and without the benefit of conversion tables. Both roundabouts and metrication will help you understand the British sense of humour.
7. The former USA will adopt UK prices on petrol (which you have been calling gasoline) of roughly $10/US gallon. Get used to it. 8. You will learn to make real chips.

9. The cold, tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually beer at all. Henceforth, only proper British Bitter will be referred to as beer, and European brews of known and accepted provenance will be referred to as Lager. South African beer is also acceptable, as they are pound for pound the greatest sporting nation on earth and it can only be due to the beer. They are also part of the British Commonwealth - see what it did for them. American brands will be referred to as NearFrozen Gnat's Urine, so that all can be sold without risk of further confusion. 10.

Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities to American football, but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body armour like a bunch of nancies). 12. Further, you will stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to host an event called the World Series for a game which is not played outside
The Pastor Says . . .
Pastor Hal Seed, Pastor New Song Community Church, Oceanside How to Get the Most Out of Christmas
For most of us, Christmas can either be the most wonderful time of the year, or the most hectic time of the year. If you’d like to choose the former, I have three suggestions for you:
1. Skip the Black Friday rush. If you want to shop that day, arrive at the store at 9 a.m., after the full court press is over. The cheer will still be there, minus the crowd and the panic. 2. Get a reminder of what Christmas is really about. We do that at New Song by hosting a special Christmas service on the first weekend of December. We
Chuckles Cont. on Page 11
sing Christmas carols and present stories that retell the wonder of a little town where a baby was born in a manger. The service strikes a cord with everyone and sets us in the Christmas spirit. This year, we’ll present The Gift at 5 p.m. Dec. 3; and at 8:30, 10:00, or 11:30 a.m. Dec. 4. - 3985 Mission Ave., Oceanside. 3. Appreciate the symbols around you. The Christmas Tree is evergreen, symbolizing the eternal life that Jesus brought to earth. The lights on the Tree remind us that He is the light of the world. Holly berries and poinsettias recall that this Savior shed His blood for us. We give gifts to each other because God so loved the world that He gave His greatest gift, His Son, to us at Christmas. Candy canes are shaped like a “J” because of Jesus. Their red and white stripes remind us that His blood can make us white as snow. Almost every decoration in your house points to the Savior born in Bethlehem. Look around this December, and soak in the wonder!

Honoring Our Veterans
November 11 is Veterans Day. If time permits, visit the new Veterans Memorial Park on S. Santa Fe Avenue, near E. Broadway. The one acre site is a beautiful place for quiet reflection and contemplation to honor and remember veterans. We pay tribute to the brave veterans who came before our troops currently serving and we honor all of our veterans, especially those in the North County region. As a City, we are proud of the men and women who have bravely and selflessly served our country.
This day reminds us to acknowledge the dedicated troops who are presently serving our country in distance places overseas and at home. We owe America’s veterans and those now serving a depth of gratitude and appreciate the great sacrifices they have made for us. Their patriotism is an inspiration for us all. I applaud our adopted Marine Corps Unit HMLA 369, a helicopter squadron based out of Camp Pendleton. Thank you to those who have answered the call to serve our nation and to the local businesses and organizations who have donated in support of HMLA 369 throughout the years.

Winners and Losers
Here is a list of the five most valuable companies in the World (by stock value) and the year they were founded:
Apple 1976, Alphabet (Google) 1998, Microsoft 1975, Amazon 1994 and Facebook 2004. Of the big five, the “graybeards” in the group, Apple and Microsoft, are starting to look like the losers. For the first time since the recession of 2008, Microsoft’s revenues are down in 2016. Last month Apple announced its first quarter to quarter revenue decline in thirteen years. The new kids on the block Alphabet/Google, Amazon, and Facebook continue to grow their year to year revenues in spectacular fashion. Why are the old giants stuck in reverse while the new kids get rich?
First of all it is hard to stay on top in the high tech world of computing. The year that Microsoft was founded, 1975, the computer giants were IBM and the “Bunch” (Burroughs, Univac, NCR, CDC and Honeywell). None of these are exactly household names these days. Successful companies tend to get bureaucratic and unresponsive as they age. This certainly has been the case with Microsoft. Bill Gates was late to understand the importance of the Internet and his successor, Steve Ballmer, brought Microsoft into the mobile device (smart phones/tablets) way too late. As a result, in recent years, Microsoft is stuck in the role of a big frog (90% share of the PC OS business) in a shrinking pond (PC sales dropping 5-7% each year since 2011). Mobile device sales have been growing since 2011 but Microsoft has less than a 2% share of mobile device OS. Google Android with 85% and Apple iOS 13% dominate mobile devices. Microsoft Windows OS not only failed to gain traction, it has been losing ground. Microsoft’s effort to create a cross platform OS (PCs and mobiles) with Win8/8.1 and later Win10 failed. To make matters worse, Win10’s market share flat lined this summer at 22% and seven year old Win7 (the new XP) with a 48% market share actually increased its lead over Win10. Apples “build it and they will come” marketing strategy is beginning to

As an art project and teaching tool, the Tree encourages people to experience the power of creation and individual action, and participants see the impact of how each crane, together with the other many cranes, become transformed into something beautiful, beyond the scope of one individual’s efforts.

Apple has been losing market share to Android smart phones for years but the dynamic growth in smart phones more than compensated for Apples shrinking share. The market has matured, growth has slowed and Apples shrunken market share has resulted in shrinking sales and revenue. Apple still holds a stable 8% share of the PC business but Apple sales are declining along with the general decline in PC sales. To make matters worse Apple is being squeezed out of the once lucrative education market by the low cost “Chromebooks.” Apples latest attempt

No longer manufacturing products and buying technology from its competitors, Apple is starting to resemble a sad silent screen movie vamp, trying to barter her faded beauty and screen credits for a free lunch along Rodeo Drive. Both Microsoft and Apple aren’t done yet. Each has enough money in the bank to purchase the Clintons a thousand times over.

Ramirez Case No. 37-2016-00020182 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate or both, of Manuel P. Ramirez. A Petition for Probate has been filed by Elizabeth M. Ramirez in the Superior Court of California, County of San Diego, 1409 Fourth Ave., San Diego, Ca. 92101, Madge Bradley Building. The Petition for Probate requests that Elizabeth M. Ramirez be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Date: 11/15/2016 Time: 11 a. m. Dept: PC1 Address of court: Same as noted above. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in Section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statues and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a peson interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Petitioner: In Pro Persona Elizabeth M. Ramirez 475 Blue Sage Way Oceanside, Ca. 92057 760.275.8363 10/27, 11/03 & 11/10/2016
