An Alternative to Clinton

    

Last week, I wrote about the October 23, 1983 ,bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut. This tragedy and the loss of 241 Marines and sailors was the direct result of Iranian efforts with assistance by Syria and Hezbollah. Today, President Obama is placing his trust in the same thugs who committed this “despicable” act.  […]

32 Years After Beirut

    

As the Obama administration hails its nuclear agreement with Iran, within the Arab world the deal has been met with wariness and concern. The president says, “This deal offers an opportunity to move in a new direction.”  But Sunni hardliners were convinced the deal “signals U.S. acquiescence to the spread of Iranian power.” Egypt’s foreign […]

A Social Stability Problem

    

A well-known Tulsa CEO told an “inside baseball” story about his company.  It would seem that persons unknown on a daily basis tried to hack into the company’s computer and accounts. It got so bad that the FBI made a call.  What they did was show from where in China the hacks were originating.  It […]

Delusional Disorder

    

You may have read or heard that in June, your fellow citizens left the labor force “in droves.”   It must have been summer vacation, a little time off to study climate change or “I made enough money for the rest of the year?” It has to be one of those reasons because everything is great […]

Happy Times Are a Long Way Off

    

The New York Times writes, “A cascade of events suggests that 2015 could be remembered as a liberal spring: The moment when deeply divisive and consuming questions of race, sexuality and broadened access to health care were settled in quick succession, and social tolerance was cemented as a cornerstone of American public life.” It was […]

A Useful Debate

    

Like all Tulsans I regret what happened on April 2, especially to the families involved.  Although the shooting was an accident, an accident that cannot be dismissed and will play out over coming weeks. On the other hand it brings to light facts that most of us – even those politically involved – never knew.  […]

Voting With Your Feet

    

On June 2, William McGurn wrote an excellent article for the Wall Street Journal entitled, “Best Poverty Cure:  Escape from Baltimore.” The common sense of his article is that for those trapped in poverty the best option is to find another city “to call home.” The same point can be made for anyone looking for […]

The ‘Toyota Effect’

    

That was the story line of an article by Steve Brown, real estate editor for the Dallas Morning News. The report began by saying, “One of the last empty corners in Legacy Business Park on the Dallas North Tollway is attracting development plans.” Stream Realty Partners is beginning a new 12-story office tower which is […]

Unexpectedly, Really?

    

As Bloomburg reported, consumer confidence “unexpectedly” fell in May by the most in more than two years.  Americans seemed worried on all fronts. The University of Michigan preliminary index of sentiment dropped from 95.9 to 88.6 in May.  The resulting outcome was lower than “the lowest estimate of 68 economists surveyed.” A stalled U.S. economy […]

If the Legislature Won’t, Business Must

    

The State Chamber just sent to its members two reports from the Oklahoma Educated Workforce Initiative. The two reports are entitled, “Oklahoma’s Business Case for Education Reform” and “Oklahoma Education at a Crossroads.” To the casual observer, it would seem the State Chamber publishes its alarming statics each year without achieving any tangible results.  The […]
