Oklahoma Politics Snarl Push for Tornado Shelters at Schools

It’s tornado season again in Oklahoma. The ominous clouds and warm air one day last week reminded Danni Legg of the afternoon last May when a twister laid waste to the city of Moore and killed her 9-year-old son.

“Your heart drops,” she said.

Legg and the families of six other children killed at Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore helped gather more than 100,000 signatures last year for a ballot initiative to equip the state’s 1,800 public school buildings with storm shelters.

Oklahoma Police Beat Man to Death Before Confiscating Cell Phone Camera that Captured Beating


Oklahoma law enforcement officers beat a man to death before confiscating his wife’s cell phone after she video recorded the incident, leaving the key piece of evidence in the hands of the killers.

Police said they needed the phone as “evidence” but the United States Department of Justice has made it very clear that police can only seize a camera without a warrant if they believe the camera contains evidence of a crime and if they believe this evidence would be destroyed if they don’t act fast to obtain it.

I watched America live a little bit today, I also saw it die a little bit.

I watched America live a little today, in the effort and passion put forward by the hundreds of citizen lobbyists who showed up at the Oklahoma State capital today to fight against the tyranny of marijuana prohibition. I also saw America die a little bit as we sat in the senate gallery and watched them pass a bill to hand over our presidential electoral college process to the centralized national media propagandists. All in the name of "democracy", with platitudes and assurance that its all "For the people". But its plain who is pulling the strings, and it's not "the people".

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn will finish out the current congressional session and then resign from his seat nearly two years before his term is scheduled to end, he said in a statement released late Thursday.
The 65-year-old Republican said he would leave the Senate at the end of the current session in January 2015. His term was scheduled to end in 2016, and Coburn already had vowed not to seek a third.

Gov of OK Mary Fallin Challenged by Possible Liberty Candidate

So what do we know about Randy Brogdon? He’s running for Gov of OK challenging Republican incumbent, Mary Fallin. I just recently learned about his campaign on the Tom Woods show, which was pretty cool as I am a brand new subscriber to his iTunes podcast, and was surprised to hear about a Liberty candidate in Oklahoma. Then thought, it prob wont matter. This guy wont have a shot at beating Fallin... But the democrats down here hate her. I mean they HATE.

City Code Officers Push Oklahoma Senior To Suicide - Upside Down World

Two to Three times a week I would talk to Mr Cox on the phone....... one of the most energetic and caring men to walk this Earth. Mr Cox had a code hearing the next day in municipal court over some treasures he'd collected and had stored on his property. I've been unable to contact my friend now for close to a week. Last Wednesday night was the last conversation I had with this 72 year old entrepreneurial spirit, calling from the east coast to Oklahoma we talked for over 50 minutes.

It's Your Fault

Originally posted on The Otter Limits in October 2013.

With Democrats blaming the Republicans and Republicans blaming the Democrats for the government shutdown, one thing is certain, there is somebody who is blame for this mess.

You can blame the Republicans for not “compromising” and “causing” the shutdown for standing by their “principles” and not passing a bill to fund the government unless it cuts out Obamacare.

The federal government is very good at distracting people. They do this so that they can exert more control over those people.

Edward Snowden. Where is he? What country is he in now? Who is going to give him asylum? Is he a hero or is he a traitor? Edward Snowden in this paper. Edward Snowden on that news report. Edward Snowden all over the blogosphere.

Wait. What? Why are we talking about Edward Snowden so much? Why is there so much attention on Edward Snowden?

The Problem With National Standards

Any sort of top-down accountability when it comes to education is driven by politics and not driven by the needs of students and thus squash the life out of classrooms and, contrary to the leftist mentality, hurts the poorest areas most.

The No Child Left Behind Act required every state to test every student every year and judged those students and schools exclusively on those test scores. The wreckage of NCLB is still apparent in schools across the nation.

Congress to President: We want our share of the war pie too!

The sad thing is that the reason Congress is demanding the President allow them to vote on Syria has more to do with the opportunity therein to extort more money out of defense lobbyist with their vote than it has anything to do with the Constitution or rule of law. They just want their piece of the war pie too.

US Congressman: Violating the Constitution not a Crime, not Grounds for Impeachment.

From a friend's blog:

Recently, I wrote an e-mail to my Congressman, Rep. James Lankford, suggesting that impeachment proceedings against President Obama be considered. I feel that impeachment is justifiable because of his flagrant violations of the US Constitution. I feel that violations against the US Constitution criminal acts because this document is the highest law of the land and all other laws are secondary to this document.

Here are some excerpts from the response that I received from his office:
