I'm submitting this as proof that there are actual liberals in rural Oklahoma.
On your left you'll notice a rather large hill rising somewhat less than majestically into the clouds. This is Cavanal Hill located in Poteau, OK.
This hill is also what I see when I go out my front door, albeit from 10 miles away and not from this angle.
However, this is the perspective I see almost as much as the one I see from my house, because this exact spot is the entrance to the local Wal-Mart.
Can't get much more Okie than that.
Now I have three more leftist Okies who, I assume, have more shopping options than I do. I know they do since they're from OKC and Tulsa. If we had the people who write these blogs running the Democratic Party in Oklahoma the state wouldn't be line dancing back to the Dark Ages.
Just Not Right is written by the kind of guy that makes the Righties in OK want a state formed milita. His posts are right on the money. You're going to like Just Not Right and if you have a delicate, purintanical disposition, don't bother.
Tim McVeigh stalagmites hate Democracy and America so violently they seek to overturn a massive landslide election by force. Teahadist's in Oklahoma are in serious conversation with wackjob local politicians to form a local armed militia to defend Oklahoma from the will of the people.Ok, I left out the good stuff.
Teabag suckler and GOP wannabe for Governor, Randy Brogdon, R-Owasso, thinks armed hooligans running amok promoting armed coups is a swell idea.
Double dip nut sucker state Rep. Charles Key, R-Oklahoma City, said he believes there's a good chance of introducing legislation for a state-authorized militia next year.
Yes, as I write this, we rest a week shy of the 15th anniversary and in the waning shadows of the survival tree, where an anti-government fanatic blew up the Afred P. Murrah building, killing 168 Americans.
And now, we have a bunch of losers, who hate losing so much that they are willing to get a gun to show how unpatriotic and un-American they are by imposing their will by bullets instead of
And from Tulsy Town,
News and Views for Tulsa's Reality-Based Community: Ideas, Politics, Letters, Art, Environment
Hint, that reality-based thing is kinda code for non-teabagger. Here's more.
Alternative Tulsa presents ideas and commentary for people in Tulsa and Northeastern Oklahoma who want a different view of politics and culture. Our philosophy is independent, rational, literate and open-minded. At AltTulsa (or AT), we want to highlight ideas and opinions that provoke and enlighten, doing our small part to publish the truth as we see it and, as the saying goes, to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.Once again, that whole "independent, rational, literate and open-minded" thing pretty much means "We ain't frigging Republicans". Good news and a good blog from Oklahoma's Second City, third college football team.
The third blog is from a honest to goodness out of state agitator who, from what I can figure, found herself in Oklahoma when the 'shrooms wore off and has been stuck here ever since. But fortunately, she's been showing us locals how to have fun since '03, er 2003. She goes by Rena and her place is Peace Arena. It's probably the only spot in Oklahoma where you'd find an article with a title like;
A thousand (plus) words worth of progressive schadenfreude
We may not know what that means, but back when we could beat Texas we appreaciated the concept without realizing that there was a name for it. So Rena is raising our collective IQ, thanks Rena.
Just wanted folks to know that there are some people who are able to use their minds for the intended purpose here in the state where hunter/gatherer is quickly becoming a good career choice.
Check out these points of lights from the right wing darkness.
