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.

In praise of petroleum


Letters to the Editor

Amber Nemecek
“Future generations call us to say no to the Keystone XL pipeline” according to Nathaniel Batchelder’s “No time for pipeline” commentary (May 22, Oklahoma Gazette). If that’s the case, then future generations need to say goodbye to telephones, soft contact lenses, motor oil, antifreeze, deodorant, lipstick, hair color, eyeglasses, soap, perfumes, tires and many other common items that Americans use on a daily basis.

Getting past coal


Letters to the Editor

Jody Harlan
In a recent letter to the editor in favor of burning toxic coal to generate electricity, Doug Rixmann (”Bashing coal,” May 1, Oklahoma Gazette) repeatedly demonstrated his lack of understanding of the consequences of burning coal to produce electricity, as well as the costs and risks associated with retrofitting older plants rather than retiring them and replacing them with clean energy.

You kidding me?


Letters to the Editor

Larry Stem
When I started reading the letter to the editor titled “Hooray for G.W.” (May 8, Oklahoma Gazette) by David Oliver, I thought it some tart satire.

College and life


Letters to the Editor

Scott Campbell
Regarding Vince Orza’s commentary about kids in college today (”College shouldn’t be never-ending,” May 15, Oklahoma Gazette), he doesn’t understand one big point: High schools don’t teach kids about career choices.

Pondering religious freedom


Letters to the Editor

K.A. Straughn
Concerning Hobby Lobby’s refusal to pay for emergency birth control under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Dennis Weigand (Letters to the Editor, “Questioning Hobby Lobby, May 8, Oklahoma Gazette) writes, “Is employment at Hobby Lobby conditional on agreement with the religious views of the owners? If it is not, then [Hobby Lobby’s] claim that their religious freedom would be violated by the ACA is nothing but a hollow pretense to religious superiority, taking the position that Hobby Lobby’s religious freedom is more important than the religious freedom of their employees.”

The reality behind ‘teen pregnancy’


Letters to the Editor

Mike Males
That even today, “teen pregnancy” continues to be misrepresented as just the result of teenage ignorance and carelessness (Life, Rachel Curtis, “Sensible sex ed,” April 24, Oklahoma Gazette) is more proof of the need to abandon this sexist misnomer. The large majority of male partners are adult men.

The last laugh


Letters to the Editor

Jon Parker
I read David Hull’s tirade on President Obama’s economic record (Letters, “Demonizing rich people, May 1, Oklahoma Gazette) on Friday, May 3. That was the day it was announced that we had added 165,000 jobs in April, and the February and March numbers were revised upward by 114,000 jobs, bringing unemployment down to 7.5 percent. It was also the day the Dow and S&P 500 closed at all-time highs.

Still stealing land


Letters to the Editor

M.B. Stephenson
The myth surrounding the construction of the KXL Pipeline is that it will further fuel us in Oklahoma by providing energy independence and jobs.

Re-gifting a time capsule


Letters to the Editor

Danielle Fleetwood
I was reading the article about the “Century Chest” (Life, Rachael Cervenka, “It’s about time,” May 1, Oklahoma Gazette), and I think instead of filling in the hole, the church should take pictures of what was in the first time capsule and make another.
