Editorial: Bigger government is the plan

 

City Councilor Blake Ewing wants more local and federal tax dollars to build a massive transit hub in Downtown Tulsa. He has not released details for this plan to grow government but it involves bridges over railroad tracks and would facilitate bus service, biking, parking and passenger rail service. This monstrous plan is consistent with […]

Letter to the editor: Keep guns from criminals, not citizens

    

Black lives matter, cops lives matter, unborn lives matter.  Let’s face it, all lives matter. The methods of taking lives vary.  Guns seem to get the most attention.  Recently, knives, machetes, heat inside automobiles, choking, beating and the abortion table have made national news as methods of taking lives. Let’s think deeply about the guns. […]

Letter to the editor: Hippocratic Oath

    

A group of doctors has decided to rewrite the Hippocratic Oath. The ancient pledge charges physicians with applying “all measures that are required” to help the sick. The American Society of Clinical Oncology wants to add a caveat — “unless those measures are too expensive. Then let the patient die.” The oncologists’ group has developed […]

Letter to the editor: Saudi crime

    

Twenty-eight pages of the 9/11 Commission report are deemed so critical of Saudi Arabia that you can’t see them – per George W. Bush and President Barack Obama. We knew right after the 9/11/2001 attack that 11 Saudi crew members were involved in the hijacking and crashing of four airliners full of innocent passengers and […]

Editorial: God bless Kim Davis for her faith

 

Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis believes in Jesus Christ and the Bible and she is willing to stand up for what she believes. For that, a federal judge has put her in jail. Davis understands that the Bible teaches – in the Old Testament and New Testament – that marriage is a holy bond between […]

Editorial: Financial rumblings in the market

 

It’s coming, folks. The volatility in the Stock Market earlier this month is just a warmup for a big financial adjustment that could really damage American families. The “perfect storm” could be on our doorstep. Our national debt is $16,700,000,000,000.00 and rising. Congress just can’t stop borrowing and spending. American Treasury bonds are no longer […]

Editorial: President Obama’s inaction

 

While racists among the Black Lives Matter movement advocate the murder of police officers, President Obama is silent. In a period in our history when a president could use his bully pulpit to bring people closer together, Obama, America’s first black president, won’t denounce the dangerous rhetoric against law enforcement. His stance or inaction isn’t […]

Editorial: Presidential lies about energy

 

President Obama said his energy policies will mean lower energy bills for Americans. That’s just a lie. In August, Obama said Americans are choosing wind and solar power because “they like saving money.” That is so far from the truth that it is laughable. Energy costs for homeowners are skyrocketing because of Obama’s war on […]

Editorial: Journalism versus activism

 

At a Dubuque, Iowa, press conference in August, Univision reporter Jorge Ramos stood up and started asking presidential hopeful Donald Trump a series of questions that were more accusations than inquiries. “You weren’t called,” said Trump. “Sit down.” As Ramos, who is based in Miami at the Spanish-language network, continued, Trump told him to sit […]

Editorial: Christian religious persecution

 

Some Denver city councilors want to prevent the Denver Airport from allowing a Chick-fil-A restaurant in the airport. Why? Because the CEO of Chick-fil-A believes that marriage is between one man and one woman. The councilors are not alleging discrimination by the restaurant chain or its employees. No, this is a classic case of “viewpoint […]
