Letter to the editor: EPA misfires with WOTUS

    

With the EPA threatening to enforce its egregious Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rules, farmers and ranchers are among a growing list of Americans who fear the heavy hand of a bureaucratic federal agency. During a recent town hall meeting, U.S. Rep. Tom Cole, R-Oklahoma, said the EPA is the most hated federal agency in […]

Editorial: Banning the Ten Commandments

 

What issue could unite Jewish rabbis with Muslims who are part of an organization linked with extremism? In Oklahoma, those two groups plus ultra-liberal “Christian” organizations have joined forces in a “noble” cause to ban display of the Ten Commandments from public view. That’s right. So-called Christians, nonorthodox Jews and Muslims can’t stand the idea […]

Editorial: Obama and the heroin epidemic

 

America has a heroin epidemic and that shouldn’t surprise anyone. President Obama promotes a socialist government that emphasizes entitlement and minimizes the value of work. When people don’t work and aren’t encouraged to work, they turn to alcohol and drug abuse. It’s gotten so bad that Obama had a big announcement that he would spend […]

Editorial: Another casino gambling victim

 

What is the cost of tribal casino gambling in Oklahoma? To Sen. Rick Brinkley, the cost is enormous. Brinkley is a Republican senator representing Owasso. A former minister, Brinkley has had a short but remarkable career in the Oklahoma Senate. He was so popular, he was in line to become Senate Pro Tem in two […]

Editorial: Fruits and nuts in California?

 

California is paying for a man to have a sex change operation. Shiloh Quine, who was named Rodney Quine when he went to prison in 1980, has convinced state psychologists that he is really a woman trapped in a man’s body. That, of course, is hogwash. People can dress up like the opposite sex and […]

Editorial: Reasons for a teacher shortage

 

Public schools have a teacher shortage and it’s not rocket science to understand why. Liberals say the shortage is caused by a lack of teacher pay and that is true to an extent. They won’t tell you that teacher pay is determined by each district, not by the Legislature. And they won’t tell you that […]

Editorial: Cruz scores in Oklahoma visit

 

The Ted Cruz campaign stop in Tulsa and Bartlesville in August produced overflow crowds that cheered the Texas Republican who is seeking the nomination for president in 2016. It is a gigantic plus for Cruz that he has the wholehearted endorsement of U.S. Rep. Jim Bridenstine, R-Oklahoma, one of the most popular conservatives in the […]

Editorial: Schumer and more gun control

 

Amy Schumer is a blue, over-sexed comedienne who wants to disarm America. Schumer is the star of Trainwreck, a terrible movie about a loose woman who hops from bed to bed while denigrating genuine love. Trainwreck was the movie that was showing in the theater in Louisiana where a lone gunman started shooting people, killing […]

Editorial: More bizarre immorality moves

 

New York Magazine reported the story of an 18-year-old woman who has fallen in love with her father, whom she plans to marry and then have children. The couple will move to New Jersey where such incestuous relationships are legal. The woman grew up without knowing her father but connected with him when she was […]

Editorial: Tulsa World and Indian casinos

 

The liberal Tulsa World, owned and controlled by billionaire atheist Warren Buffet, loves tribal casinos, discounting the social damage they do and promoting their “economic impact.” It’s not hard to conclude that the newspaper’s favorable opinion, which is expressed both on the editorial pages and mixed in with “hard news” coverage, is based on the […]
