‘Batchelder logic’


Letters to the Editor

Mike Brake
Poor Nathaniel Batchelder (Letters, “Lankford and the Bush trifecta,” Aug. 31, Gazette). His frequent letters here are always a convoluted intellectual wrestling match between fact and fantasy, with a dollop of hypocrisy for spice. Such was his recent offering, which postulated that, a) the national debt is really G.W. Bush’s fault, and, b) the answer is to raise taxes, on the “rich,” of course.

Truth and taxes


Letters to the Editor

B. Ellis
I recently read D.W. Tiffee’s letter (“Soak the rich,” Sept. 28, Gazette) responding to Mike Brake’s Sept. 14 letter (“Batchelder logic”) on taxing the “rich.”

Rich folks pay plenty


Letters to the Editor

Brad Duncan
D.W. Tiffee’s Feb. 13 letter to Oklahoma Gazette, “A tax cut to die for,” makes two misleading statements that represent the typical liberal spin regarding tax assessments. The first statement was, “The bottom 20 percent pay an effective state and local rate of 10.3 percent vs. 4.6 percent for the top 1 percent.” The second was, “Fair to Republicans always means the poor paying more and the rich paying less.” Sounds as if the “poor” are being terribly put upon while those “wascally rich” are making out like bandits as usual, huh?

Fracking: Good or bad? Is it that easy?


Commentary

Cal Hobson
Fracking is the injection of huge amounts of water, sand and chemicals into oil and natural gas-producing rock formations far below the surface. Horizontal drilling is the opposite of vertical in that the drill pipe bends at some point “down hole” and, thus, can penetrate multiple producing “plays.”

Up and coming

The Rise promises a blend of historic and new with an array of retail and dining along NW 23rd Street and Walker Avenue.


News

Tim Farley
Self-preservation was high on Johnathan Russell’s list of reasons for redeveloping an area at NW 23rd Street and Walker Avenue that once was known more for its drug deals and prostitution than trendy restaurants and retail outlets.

Who knew Oklahoma’s top educator, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Janet Barresi, had $1 million to spend on her last two campaigns?
