Here comes the next crazy train...

House Bill 1002, by Rep. Jim Olsen, R-Roland, would let any county sheriff detain or arrest any federal employee while enforcing a buy-back, confiscation or surrender of firearms, accessories and ammunition in the sheriff’s jurisdiction.

House Bill 1780 from Rep. Danny Williams, R-Seminole, would ban sex education programs in schools.

House Bill 2186 from Rep. Kevin West, R-Moore, makes it illegal to host drag queen story hour on public property or in places where a minor could see the event. The bill also makes it illegal for anyone to stage on public property an “adult cabaret performance,” which includes drag queens, strippers, topless dancers or go-go dancers.  Senate Bill 503, by Sen. David Bullard, R-Durant, would allow municipalities to deny a permit for any "public display of lewd acts or obscene material" in public places or where children could see them. The law would cover parades, shows, concerts, plays and any other activity where a minor could witness lewd acts or obscene material or any person could unwillingly see them.

Sens. Julie Daniels, R-Bartlesville, and Shane Jett, R-Shawnee, filed legislation Thursday that would allow taxpayer funds to be used for private school tuition or other education expenses in lieu of a student attending public school.

I don’t 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.

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – The Oklahoma House has passed a measure to ban ‘classroom instruction’ on sexual orientation or gender identity from Pre-K to 5th grade.
Last year, Florida passed HB 1557, known as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, which bans the teaching of sexual orientation or gender identity in Kindergarten through 3rd grade “or in a manner that is not age appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards.”
“This isn’t happening in our schools in the first place, so why are we trying to write a piece of legislation that is not happening?” said Rep. Jacob Rosecrants, a former Norman teacher.


Also today...

A former Florida lawmaker who sponsored a bill dubbed the "Don't Say Gay" law by critics has pleaded guilty to fraudulently obtaining COVID-19 relief funds.
Joseph Harding entered a guilty plea on Tuesday in federal court in the Northern District of Florida to one count of wire fraud, one count of money laundering and one count of making false statements, according to court records.

Oklahoma has formally begun the process of essentially blacklisting some of the nation’s largest financial firms from doing business with the state, Treasurer Todd Russ said Wednesday.

Russ released a list of 13 firms he said do not meet the requirements of a 2022 law barring contracts with companies deemed hostile to oil and gas or that do not respond to a set of questions put to them by the treasurer’s office.

The treasurer’s press release did not say which of 13 financial firms, including Blackrock, Wells Fargo and Co., JPMorgan Chase and Co., Bank of America Corp., were found to be “boycotting” oil and gas and which had not responded to the request for information.
