Tribal leaders see generational divide

(Continued)

Ada —

We condemn such unwise course of conduct in the strongest of terms.

Citizens of the Chickasaw and Choctaw nations, like all Oklahomans, have a vital interest in maintaining the conditions necessary to ensure a strong economy and a thriving natural environment for our children and grandchildren. Water is an essential element of that equation for all of us.

For that reason, it is vitally important state and tribal leaders come together and work to develop a mutually agreeable  plan for the sustainable long-term management of the water resources on which we all rely.  That will take hard and concentrated work, but we see it as our duty as tribal leaders to reach out and across the table toward a common good.  We believe such an approach is the only one that will serve all Oklahomans and that the proposed stream adjudication is a precipitous step in the wrong direction.

 

Bill Anoatubby

Governor

The Chickasaw Nation

Greg Pyle

Principle Chief

The Choctaw Nation

 

Editor, The Ada News:

I enjoyed your assessment of Atlas Shrugged.

Then you spoke of those that believe you can run benevolence through the government.

I see nothing charitable about government taking money from the productive, by force of arms, and if you do not give this money to government, eventually someone from government will be at your house with a gun to take you or your money. Is that charity? To devise a plan to take a worker’s earning to give it to a non-worker is conspiracy and thievery.

Benevolence is when a successful person reaches into his own pocket and gives willingly to someone he perceives to be in need.

Although Americans are greedy, dirty, capitalist pigs, we are the most compassionate and generous people on this globe we call Earth.

The Declaration of Independence says, we instituted our government to protect our God-given rights which include our rightful holdings.
