You can be fairly certain that any article that uses the term "abortion profits" is written by someone who is not connected with reality.

Just like any article which uses the term "war on women".

Expect More Conservative Bills

http://kwgs.com/post/expect-more-conservative-bills

Quote
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Emboldened by further gains at the ballot box in November, Oklahoma's Republican leaders say they remain committed to improving the state's economy by focusing on creating jobs and a business friendly environment.

But with nearly two dozen new Republican members, GOP leaders acknowledge they also expect to see even more conservative legislation this session that pushes the envelope on hot-button social issues like guns, abortion and immigration.

Although the bill filing deadline is still two weeks away, Senate measures are beginning to trickle in, some of which reflect the conservative ideology of the 36-member strong Republican caucus.

At least two measures have been filed to limit the activities of groups connected to Agenda 21, a plan developed by the United Nations to help cities and countries become more environmentally sustainable.

You mean to tell me that an even larger conservative majority plans on filing even more conservative-premised bills? Shocka....

It's Oklahoma.  Politically and intellectually, the term "Oklahoma legislator" could be used as an insult.

No doubt since the republicans took control in 2008. Before then, everything was a-okay.

No.  Just change it until these types leave.

Oh goody, another "Oklahoma sucks" thread. And from "Mother Jones" to boot. What's the matter, DailyKos or MSNBC not covering Oklahoma this week?


What...reality casting a pall on those rose colored glasses??

I used to be able to do that by voting Republican for local and state elections.



Actually, no you never did.  You were way too young to vote for Page Belcher.

No.  Many things have been messed up in Oklahoma for a long time.  Go drive the turnpikes again.  That's one of the most obvious symptoms.

I don't agree with Oklahoma's legislature as being the worst in the nation, Nebraska has a one-house system they call it a "UniCaminal" and it does not work well at all. Oklahoma is doing pretty darn good with low unemployment and low taxes and a low cost of living, it's hard to beat that. We have a good Governor who works for the people. Oklahoma is OK compaired to many other states. I have lived in 5 states.
