Voting for Gary Johnson

If I were a Democrat, then I'd be as furious with my fellow partisans for nominating Hillary Clinton as I am at my fellow Republicans for nominating Donald Trump.

For joint pain, give your meds time to work effectively

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a 70-year-old woman, in generally good health, and am having trouble with my right hip. I have had both knees replaced (I spent 40-plus years as a floor nurse). I lost 40 pounds and have kept it off for the past three years by walking 10,000 steps per day.

Early voter gets remorse

As I write this, more than 27 million Americans already have voted in the Nov. 8 election. California voters can submit their ballots 30 days before Election Day. Minnesotans can vote 46 days out - starting Sept. 23, i.e., before the first of the three general election presidential debates. Many early voters cast their ballots before recent revelations about Donald Trump's treatment of women and Hillary Clinton's wayward emails, so there have to be voters who regret their choice.

CNN: Clinton News Network

Rush Limbaugh found just the right analogy for the CNN cheating scandal, where (now) former CNN analyst Donna Brazile fed "town hall" questions to Hillary Clinton. It's the quiz-show scandal of the 1950s, where Charles Van Doren was given the questions on the NBC game show "Twenty-One" in advance and looked like a genius on national television. Van Doren later apologized to America, saying, "I have deceived my friends, and I had millions of them."

Not so FAST, Mike Restuccia

Every citizen has the right to endorse anyone for public office, but public officers walk a fine line when endorsing a candidate for elected office. That is the case of Michael Restuccia, the current Chairman of the San Joaquin Regional Transit District. On Monday, October 31, 2016, Restuccia wrote a Letter to the Editor at the Manteca Bulletin, "Denham delivers for district," announcing his support for Congressman Jeff Denham's reelection. Denham is the incumbent, a Republican and supporter of Donald Trump. He is fighting for survival in his reelection to Congress; Michael Eggman, a farmer, beekeeper and small business ...

Landslide? Not so fast

So we have one candidate who definitely supports the Constitution and one who takes 24 hours to decide whether he does (tough one). We have one candidate who has stood up for women's rights in 115 nations and one who is credited with starting a national discussion about whether a nice way of saying hello to a woman is to grab her by the, well - it's a word that can mean "cat." (Look, he's the one running for president and saying these things, not me.) We've got one candidate who is supported by her base and ...

Just the facts, ma’am

We knew there could be a big October surprise before this bizarre and unpopular election finally came to an end. But who knew it would come from emails found on a device used by former Rep. Anthony Weiner, which was confiscated by the FBI after he sexted an underage woman - an act that cost him his job, his income and his marriage?

Blame? Try GOP in Congress

Yes, I share the pain; I am outraged! I am a military father after all and I would be extremely upset if my son were in the same unfair circumstances as Capt. Chris Van Meter, the Manteca hero recently mentioned in the Manteca Bulletin. So I want to extend my most sincere gratitude to him for his service to our country and to let him know he is not alone; we Mantecans and the entire country is behind him.
