Corporation Commissioner Bob Anthony isn’t letting up!

A few weeks back, we let you know that term-limited Oklahoma Corporation Commissioner Bob Anthony has gone rogue, and is having a merry old time breaking Oklahoma Ruling Class protocol and exposing just how bad Oklahoma consumers have been hosed by the corporation commission, lawmakers and our super-friendly public utilities.

Fortunately for Joe Powerless Oklahoma Consumer, it doesn’t look like Anthony is letting up anytime soon.

Earlier today, he filed a follow-up to his January 2022 “DISSENTING OPINION” over the state’s decision to issue bonds to cover the $1.28 billion we owed ONG – a division of the NYSE-traded company One Gas – to cover the price-gouged natural gas they billed us for during the February 2021 cold spell. 

Thanks to rising interest rates over the past six months or so, I guess the actual cost for that $1.28 billion has nearly doubled to $2.25 billion, which is something we’ll all have to pay back over the next 25 years or so. Even the folks at David Stanley think that’s a ripoff. 

Well, at least I think that’s the gist of everything. I’m just some dude with an English degree who writes words on the Internet for a living. You don’t actually expect me to understand how bonds work, do you?

Oklahoma Appeals Court keeps “Innocent Man” in prison…

Over the past 15 years on this website, we’ve routinely thanked our state’s judicial branch for being the lone outpost of logic and reason in the Oklahoma polito-sphere, and doing its part to protect us from some of the more unconstitutional and insane overreaches of government by Oklahoma lawmakers, governors, corrupt law enforcement officials, etc. […]

TLO Restaurant Review: Gourmet Donuts

In Noble, there are two donut shops to choose from: Donuts Palace and Gourmet Donuts. While Donuts Palace has an extensive roster of professional donuts, Gourmet Donuts, 203 Main St., has something that regal Palace doesn’t have: fried rice and hamburgers. It made for an easy choice… I stopped by Gourmet Donuts around lunchtime and […]
