T.W. Shannon's 2013 CPAC speech - Up & coming star?Submitted by gizzy on Sat, 03/16/2013 - 21:27
Hey guys. I don't know if any of ya'll caught T.W. Shannon's speech at CPAC. Long story short, I'm originally from Oklahoma & have been friends with T.W.'s wife for quite some time. I didn't even know he was scheduled to speak at CPAC & i've honestly not kept up with what he's accomplished as the Speaker of the House in Oklahoma since I now live in Texas & focus on my state primarily. But, he did give a good speech at CPAC & he's done a good job of fixing some issues in Oklahoma. He authored & helped pass a bill requiring food stamp recipients to work a minimum of 20 hours doing community service & he has fought to do away with Affirmative Action in Oklahoma...which is great to see a black man standing up against a racist policy like Affirmative Action! So, check out his speech if you get a chance...and are any of the fellow DP'ers Oklahoma residents? If so, what are your thoughts on T.W. & how has he done as Speaker overall?
