The reason for the drought these past couple years is because we spent millions on the Cowskin Creek flood-control program.


The more commentary that I hear from our state and federal politicians. the more convinced I am that they operate under the aura of, “My mind is made up. Don’t confuse me with the facts.”


A majority of the American people were overwhelmingly opposed to Obamacare, yet Democrats rammed it down our throats anyway. Now some Democrats in Congress are seeking to exempt themselves and their staff members from it. It appears their hypocrisy knows no limits.


It’s a shame Sen. John McCain hasn’t realized yet that we have killed enough of our valuable young people and spent too much of our resources in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is now urging President Obama to move into Syria. I think it’s time to put McCain out to pasture.


What I’d give for five minutes alone with Kim Jong Un.


I am not a Republican nor a Democrat. I am a citizen of the USA, and the next time an election comes up, any position, I am running for office, for the people. And how they want me to vote is how I will vote, politics or not. I will work for the people.


If you are going to purchase an assault weapon, the first requirement should be a colonoscopy so you can find out where your head is.

I wish The Eagle and local TV stations had better coverage of the Oklahoma City Thunder.


Why can’t The Eagle fold the Go! section evenly? This takes my OCD to a new level every Friday.
