What are Trump’s values?

A man who proclaims he'd like to punch a protester in the face - as Donald Trump did recently in Nevada - isn't fit to serve as the president of the United States. That's the first thing that must be said.

Paying for low-wage pollution

Imagine if a corporation set up shop in your community and immediately dumped toxic sludge in your local waterways and buried radioactive waste next to your biggest playground. You and your neighbors, I bet, would demand full compensation from that corporation to pay for the clean-up and public health costs.

Sacramento’s tax on new jobs

In their infinite wisdom, Gov. Jerry Brown and the California Legislature have come up with five more reasons for California businesses not to hire new workers. They are introducing a bill to raise the state minimum wage gradually by $5 - from $10 an hour to $15 an hour by 2022 (and a year later for small businesses). Methinks Sen. Bernie Sanders' call for a $15-per-hour federal minimum wage -- more than double the current $7.25 floor - has started a bidding war among Democrats who can promise workers increasingly higher wages with other people's money.

$1 BILLION PAY RAISE

If Donald Trump's gravity-defying ascendancy has validated anything, it is that for Middle America, jobs and economic security are still the dominant issue. Republicans have talked up tax reform, regulatory relief and fiscal restraint -- and those are all critical to growth.

The best exercise is the one you’ll keep doing

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am an overweight 68-year-old woman who wants to exercise. I would like to know what type of exercise I can do to help me lose weight. I am allergic to the chemicals in pools, so I cannot swim. Each knee has had a total replacement, leaving me with a limited range of motion, making it impossible to bend my knee enough to ride a bike. I am not sure what I can do. I was hoping you could help me with that. I can walk half a mile without losing my breath. I live on the ...

Would The Donald govern like Arnold?

They're both iconic figures in American culture who are known by their first names. California's former governor is Arnold. The GOP presidential front-runner is The Donald. We Californians who lived through Arnold's two terms in the governor's office have watched The Donald's presidential campaign unfold with a sense of deja vu.

Why superdelegates count

Every time I see a tally of the delegate race that excludes so-called "superdelegates," I have to laugh. "Of course they count," I want to scream at The New York Times, which otherwise offers a flawless tally. That's precisely why I, and a minority of others, fought so hard against the introduction of superdelegates. Now I've been fortunate to live long enough to finally see them do what they are supposed to: Keep the party from driving off a cliff. And yet, no one wants to count them. What did we do wrong?

TRUMP VS. DEMOS

In a recent interview with Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, CNN's Jake Tapper said, "I would just ask, as a fellow American, if you could consider whether or not dialing down the temperature - trying to bring down the temperature - might be a healthier thing both for your campaign and for the nation at large." And PBS' Tavis Smiley - who once said Ronald Reagan "tortured" blacks - calls Trump a "religious and racial arsonist."
