Kicking the crap out of Democrats


CFN

Gazette staff

We are grateful for the hard work of our men in blue. But there’s a thin blue line between law-abiding citizens and killers, robbers and 3-year-olds peeing in their front yard. Er, make that a thin yellow line.

CFN

Gazette staff

After Oklahoma decided to terminate some Planned Parenthood funding, the organization responded by birthing a lawsuit against the state Department of Health. (Oh, Mistress of Tortured Metaphors, have you no shame?) Planned Parenthood does not perform abortions in Oklahoma, but it does in other states.
