    OKLAHOMA CITY -- About 20 liberal demonstrators tried to shout down Rick Santorum while he delivered his stump speech on the steps of the state capitol building here Sunday, yelling "racist" and "fascist" at the Republican presidential candidate. The anti-Santorum faction began chanting "Get your hate out of our state" when the candidate started his address. Standing before a microphone at the top of the steps, Santorum ignored them and continued speaking. The demonstration lasted about 15 minutes. Santorum supporters standing near the front of the crowd tried to come to his aid by holding signs

    OKLAHOMA CITY It was right after the words mic check were uttered by Occupy OKC ringleader Jay Fox, that things got really interesting in the crowd listening to a campaign speech by Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum. Racist, sexist, anti-gay, zealot, fascist, go away! Get your hate, out of my state! Pro-life, pro-war, what are you fighting for? This and other chants aimed at Santorum were yelled at the candidate as he tried to speak over the din. It didnt take long for both male and female Santorum supporters to get in the faces of Fox and other Occupiers...

    Newt Gingrich has a double-digit lead over the rest of the GOP field in his home state of Georgia, according to a Landmark-Rosetta Stone poll released late Friday. Gingrich took 38 percent, followed by Rick Santorum at 25 percent, Mitt Romney at 19 percent, and Ron Paul at four percent, the poll found. Gingrich held a nine-point lead in the same poll taken earlier this month. The poll could be an outlier Gingrich leads by only two points in Georgia according to the latest Insider Advantage survey and leads by five points according to Rasmussen. Both of those polls...

    If Texas had already settled its legislative redistricting issues, it would play an important part in the Republican presidential primary process. With their redistricting tied up in court, however, Texas has had to move its primary from Super Tuesday in March to late May or early June. That’s bad news for Rick Santorum, who has a crushing lead at the moment in a new statewide poll from the University of Texas and the Texas Tribune: Santorum would get the votes of 45 percent of the respondents if the election were held today, according to the survey. The other three candidates...

Santorum was the first choice of 39 percent of the 278 likely voters who said they planned to participate in the March 6 state GOP primary. Former U.S. Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, first in a survey conducted last fall, dropped to third, behind former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who remained second. Romney, generally considered the frontrunner for the GOP nomination, was at 23 percent, followed by Gingrich at 18. U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas was at...

    GINGRICH: No. It just means that we're going to have to pick up all those delegates in late May, just before the California primary, when we hope to pick up more delegates out here. That still means that on super-Tuesday, we're looking at Georgia, Tennessee, Oklahoma, we're looking at Ohio. It means the week after super- Tuesday, we're looking at Alabama and Mississippi. Now, we have hopes that we're going to keep picking up delegates everywhere and continue. This race is going on for a long time, I think. And what Texas moving back means, combined with California being in...

    Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin, in her State of the State Address, outlined a bold plan for tax reform focused on reducing rates and consolidating Oklahomas seven tax brackets. The plan would end Oklahomas complicated seven bracket income tax structure that begins taxing on the first penny any Oklahoman earns, instead replacing the structure with three brackets Oklahomans making below $15,000 a year would pay a 0-percent rate, those making under $35,000 would pay a 2.25-percent rate, and those making $35,000 and above would pay a 3.5-percent rate. The Tax Foundation ranks Oklahoma as 38th in the nation in terms...

  • Oklahoma Leads on Income-Tax Repeal (The Sooner State Might Join the Ranks of Non-Income Tax States)

    National Review ^ | 01/30/2012 | By Phil Kerpen & Stuart Jolly
    When Ron Paul talks about repealing the income tax and replacing it with nothing, most people think it cant be done. But at least on the state level, it can. In fact, there are nine states, including Pauls home state of Texas, that dont levy income taxes. Those states have far outperformed high-income-tax states on every measure of economic success. Now Oklahoma is poised to fully repeal its income tax and join the ranks of non-income-tax states. While Oklahoma is already a relatively business-friendly, low-tax state, income-tax repeal would launch it into the top tier of the most economically competitive...

    TULSA - Gun sales among women are on the rise. The number of criminal background checks for gun purchases hit an all-time high in December, according to the FBI. Experts said there are many reasons why Americans, especially women, are choosing to arm themselves. For some it's a new hobby. Others are concerned about gun rights this election year. Some just no longer feel safe in their neighborhoods. Here in Oklahoma, interest in guns has also spiked, especially among women. Enrollment in the "women's only" conceal-carry class at the Red Castle Gun Club is up 400 percent. "That's remarkable and...

Generally speaking, prescription painkillers are opiates. There are 14...
