When Truth Gets in the Way

    

I was asked recently where the material for my articles comes from.  Well, to start with, there is material galore to pick from.  I mainly use as references the Wall Street Journal, Tulsa World, New York Times Sunday edition, New Yorker Magazine, Bloomberg and the Journal Record. Today my reference is the magazine, Chronicles of […]

Thank You, Mr. President

    

It was Christmas week as I looked out the window ready to encounter a sight unseen.  It has to be pigs flying or why in the world would New York Times writer Ross Douthat compose a story entitled, “A War Trump Won?” Doesn’t Mr. Douthat know the left is at war with President Trump and […]

More Bad News for TPS

    

Many in Oklahoma applauded Governor Mary Fallin for her bold executive order calling for the Oklahoma State Board of Education to compile a list of school districts that spend less than 60 percent of their budgets on instructional expenditures and then make recommendations for administrative consolidation or annexation. At this point, we do not know […]

The Phony Case Against the President

    

If you would like to read how despised President Trump is by the Left, a must read is Jeffrey Toobin’s recent New Yorker article entitled, “The Russian Portfolio” – after Michael Flynn pleads guilty the President’s lawyers scramble. To the average reader you wonder why the Left is investing so much time to reinvent Russian […]

Schools and a Joke

    

Last month, Greg Barrack who teaches 9th grade through 12th grade students at Tulsa Memorial High School, wrote an excellent article entitled “To Help Fund Schools, Districts Need to Consolidate.” The article begins by citing the loss of teacher talent flowing to neighboring states.  He admits people are trying, but the easy way out is […]

The Governor Is Right

    

The Wall Street Journal recently interviewed Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos at the CEO Council. The Journal noted that education is consistently a top concern of executives at the paper.  Preparing youth for the jobs of today, as well as the evolving workplace of tomorrow is a challenge that many business leaders think we are […]

Boys Will Be Boys and the Hypocrisy of Washington, D.C.

    

It is always interesting to see how current events play out from the viewpoint of the New Yorker.  In their lead article for November 20th. the title is “Autumn of the Patriarchy.” It begins with saying that writers for the New York Times and the New Yorker have made plain in their recent reporting on […]

Bringing Back the Draft?

    

Clyde Haberman writing for the New York Times stirred up a number of people with his article, “John Kelly Suggests more Americans should have the honor of serving. He’s right.” The gist of his article comes down to the observation that those who haven’t served in the military, meaning nearly all Americans, cannot really understand […]

Where is the Trump credit?

    

You may have seen that consumer confidence climbed to a 17–year high in October.  The Conference Board said its consumer confidence index rose to 125.9 in October from an upwardly revised 120.6 in September.  That’s the best reading since December of 2000. “Confidence remains high among consumers, and their expectations suggest the economy will continue […]

Who Trusts Government Anymore?

    

I recently finished reading Mark Bowden’s exceptional book about the turning point of the Vietnam War entitled, Hue 1968. This is a meaningful book for me since the bulk of the U.S. response to recapture the city was fought by the Second Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment.  The Tet Offensive and its battle at Hue raged […]
