Under current Oklahoma law, it is generally illegal to harass, chase, capture, or kill wildlife with the aid of any motor driven vehicle. There are exceptions, but this is fairly clear to most hunters. So as to not mistakenly sweep up electric wheelchairs into the prohibition, Oklahoma law allows a person unable to walk to obtain permission to hunt from their motorized chair. Continue Reading….
911: Nine one one, what’s your emergency?
OKC resident: There’s someone smoking a cigarette in Bluff Creek Park!

Reporters and refugees have an unspoken arrangement: children are to be brought forth when the cameras turn on. This benefits the refugees because their plight is advertised in greatest sympathy, and this benefits the media because it dramatizes their story and furthers their narrative. International media broadcasts these images with the implication that the compassionate, Christian response is to allow the refugees in. That children are experiencing hardship is an undeniable truth. As is often the case, however, we are being fed a partial truth. There is much more to the story.
Principled Reforms on Civil Asset Forfeiture:
By David Van – There has been much debate about the practice of cops and prosecutors taking property from individuals and corporations based on only a notion that the property may have been utilized for committing a crime, or exists as the fruits of the criminal activity.
- We can’t have each county and city running this cash cow using their own unique rules. A statewide set of rules needs to be created and the state needs to hold all law enforcement agencies accountable.

It’s a question of will and commitment to principle.

I am very proud of my brother, Daniel Watts and Logan Co. GOP Chair Ric Moore for standing up for the individual inalienable right to self defense at yesterday’s Oklahoma Republican Party State Committee meeting. Wish I could have been there to support their stellar efforts!
I Was very disappointed to hear that 1/4 of the Republican State Committee members at the end of the meeting opposed the 2nd Amendment. Republicans, especially Oklahoma Republicans should have unanimously supported such a vote.
I’ve watched to many relatives die slowly and painfully from cancer. Morphine ended up being the last medication they turned to in their intense pain.
Imagine if the govt. had made Morphine illegal, arguing that it’s just Opium? And imagine if the Opium had some derivatives that actually cured ailments and recovered health?
Well, there are derivatives of Hemp which have great capabilities to restore health and bring relief from many serious ailments; yet lawmakers lack the courage or knowledge needed to get out of the way of our medical professionals who administer medications for the benefit of the suffering patients who seek relief and healing.
Every state has a filing period.
Oklahoma’s is in early December.
Monday, Dec. 7th is the first day of the Oklahoma Election Board’s 3-day filing period.
This may not be the national photo-op that it is in New Hampshire, but several media outlets will have correspondents staying in touch with the election board.
