Hinkle right on target about government largesse

EDMOND — To the Editor:

I always enjoy reading Mike Hinkle’s commentaries, but the one on “Government largesse” from July 21, 2012, was a gem. In few words he must have expressed the opinion of millions of decent, hard-working Americans in response to the repulsive statement by Mr. Obama that “somebody else made that happen.”

But such utterance should come as no surprise from an individual whose whole existence is courtesy of government largesse.

Mr. Hinkle’s reference to the “divine providence” defines his trueness and our heritage. Didn’t the captain of the Mayflower and the authors of the Declaration of Independence both invoke and pay homage to the “divine providence”?

Hinkle’s commentary should be forwarded to the Washington Post or Wall Street Journal for wider exposure and hopefully it would reach the person it was penned to reach.
