The land of Bibles and bigots


Commentary

Robin Meyers

Pulling up behind an enormous red pickup truck a few weeks before the election, I couldn’t help but notice a huge portrait of President Obama that covered most of the tailgate, and just beneath this unflattering image, in big block letters, was this question: “Does this ass make my truck look big?” Coming closer, I saw that the driver was a Marine, and these were his sentiments about his commander in chief.

Oklahoma is a conservative state. Just how conservative? Well, so much so that a little more than half of the population was unwilling in 2012 to progress up from their couch and to their voter precincts.

Too red for government aid?


Letters to the Editor

Barbara Johnson
Oklahoma by record is the “reddest” state in the Union. It is the only state in which every county voted Republican in the last two presidential elections. The Republicans have made it clear that they feel the government is an enemy — a “tyrannical” government that further compounds the right to bear arms as a necessity for protection against such government. It has been made clear that their feeling is that they do not need the government in their lives.
