Editorial: Liberal World blasts Bridenstine

 

The Tulsa World is having a harder time disguising its hatred for Republicans. The liberal newspaper is on a mission to embarrass every Tulsa County elected official plus U.S. Rep. Jim Bridenstine. Incidents in which white officers shoot black suspects are being reported all over the nation and rioting usually ensues. It did not in […]

Editorial: No leadership from the President

 

Much-needed leadership on the terrorist attack in Garland, Texas, on May 3 won’t be forthcoming from President Obama. Obama doesn’t believe there are any Muslim terrorists – he thinks they are “criminals” who believe they are acting according to Islamic principles. That’s the official stance of this administration even though ISIS has claimed responsibility for […]

Editorial: America is becoming unchurched

 

A Barna Group survey showed that almost four in 10 U.S. adults are “unchurched” – those who have not attended a church service (except for a wedding, funeral, etc.) in the last six months.

What exactly happens in a dismemberment abortion?  The following is sworn testiomony given […]

Letter to the editor: Texting while driving

    

Yay! We’re No. 46! Or we will be on Nov. 1 when Oklahoma’s law banning texting while driving kicks in, making us the 46th state to pass such legislation. But why wait? Avoid the rush. Stop texting now. We congratulate the Oklahoma Legislature for their wisdom in passing this much-needed law. It will no doubt […]

Letter to the editor: More streets, not dams

    

Now that we know the estimate to build low-water dams in Tulsa County (nearly a third of a Billion dollars), it seems that amount of money could be put to much better use.  The streets in Tulsa, Bixby and Broken Arrow are much too narrow to accommodate the traffic flow they experience.  Every afternoon between […]

Letter to the editor: Homosexual health risk

    

Concerning the Supreme Court debate on “same-sex marriage,” all of us need to remind the court that it is a health risk. You know, if you play in the sewer – as in the human septic system – you risk contamination with e coli, etc. Then, men who contaminate themselves are at risk of contaminating […]
