TULSA, OK—A crowd of 17,146 saw the University of Tulsa Golden Hurricane fall to the Houston Cougars 38-24 on Saturday afternoon. Both teams were opening conference play in The American and looking for their first win.
The Golden Hurricane were defeated last week in Norman when the OU Sooners handed them a 52-38 loss. The Cougars came into the game sitting on a perfect 3-0 record, with their last game defeating Texas State 59-14.
The Breitbart.com story is exuberant in detailing reports in a sub-headline, “The infamous Ground Zero Mosque project is officially dead. We won. We the People.”
What is strange is the lack of national media coverage on this story. How very odd. You would think another stunning defeat for President Obama would be worthy of note.
Opinion: It’s been a while since I’ve commented on the Kafkaesque dreamscape of life of late. This happens occasionally, when it seems things can’t get any weirder, but they do. I drop back and watch, waiting to see if anybody does anything to make things better. Invariably, they never do.
This time it’s been no different. In fact, things seem to be getting exponentially worse, with the supposed Good Guys aiding and abetting the Bad Guys like they were all on the same payroll. Oh…wait…they are. Never mind.
The one bright spot is Donald Trump. Now, I don’t really give a flying hooha that he’s not a purist’s idea of a conservative, or that he’s a populist. What is important is that he’s a patriot who loves America and will do whatever he can to restore us to the greatness that, pre-Obama and the America-hating neo-fascists who run him and the Democrats, used to be ours.
Analysis: Presidential candidate and former neurosurgeon Ben Carson shows appropriate national leadership in reacting to news that the gunman who killed nine individuals at an Oregon community college Thursday specifically targeted Christians.
According to witnesses, the shooter lined his victims up and asked each of them to state their faith. If they answered that they were Christian, the gunman fatally shot them. According to one survivor, Christians were shot in the head while those who didn’t declare a faith were shot in the legs.
Editorial: Multiple OKC media are reporting that the Oklahoma Republican Party has offered a home for the Ten Commandments Monument that will be removed soon from state Capitol grounds under a court order.
NewsOK.com reports “it’s not at all clear the state will accept the GOP offer.”
Tulsa Today suggests the offer should be accepted. Political parties stand on principles and the Ten Commandments have long been a part of the Oklahoma GOP platform in dramatic contrast with Democrats who booed God three times live on national television at their last national convention.
