Oh! You weren't asking for a show of hands? I'll put mine down then. How embarrassing.

Oklahoma has too many people in prison, a higher portion of its population than any state. Itís frustrating that we continue to incarcerate people who have no place behind bars years after SQ 780 made clear the intent of the people.

Not only is Oklahoma higher in proportion to any other state in locking  people up, it's the highest in the world.  Standing tall.  We should be the safest state in the nation.

I donít share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

That, and Taser deaths.

Meanwhile,



At least two "feel-good" bills criminalizing abortion and another that makes inciting police a hate crime passed legislative committees despite knowing that none would pass constitutional muster, while a corrective measure that would hold those legislators financially responsible for laws they authored if those laws are later challenged in court and found to be unconstitutional wasnt even heard in committee.

Its like Vaudeville theater without the blackface.
