Lawl. Yes, a situation that has taken years to develop in Oklahoma is clearly Trumps fault. Of course, he should have corrected this gigantic problem (controlled by the state of OK, not the federal government) the very second he took office.

They do it because they are stupid, I say eat up.

Why deny Darwin his prize.





They are stupid because of the lack of education, to live in this messed-up world you need to learn how.

You seem to be implying these people are born stupid and if you are you are spectacularly wrong.



Why is it messed up?

Do they even know what sex they are?

Common sense isn't something you learn.

We need to go back to survival of the fittest.

Not survival of the dimmest.

Stupid brothers in laws, wife wouldn't give ya no peace.

Legalize medicinal or recreational to even decriminalizing? No way, can't infringe on the prison system's revenue.

If I was a "teacher"? I'd stop paying "union dues", and keep the money for myself, so I could, ("work for the children"), at least a"five day week"...Then I'd start voting Republican and get rid of these Commie,Scocialist,labor,paid for nothing, unAmerican, blood suckers of the "people's payroll". I just hope none of "these teachers", teach economics.

WHOA dude, have you lived in Oklahoma or anywhere that a tornado can happen with no warning. My guess is no. There is a saying in Oklahoma, “if you don’t like the weather, wait a minute”.

Your making the false assumption that people like him care about anyone other than themselves.

You see this is the state of America, too many Lord of the Flies wanna-be's.

Thankfully the teachers who feel that their salaries are too small for the standard of living they have chosen, have the freedom to move to a higher-tax/higher-pay state.


So I take it you don't care about the consequential impact this will have to Oklahoma's public schools and the kids? You understand this will have impact to learning in the classrooms?

But you just don't care.

Ok. So 1. Stop paying Union dues which are a small portion of total salaries a week, like what $15 $20 a week?

Then what?

Also 2. vote Republican, in a State already heavily Republican for a good number of years now, who's policies caused this mess in the first place.

Are you being sarcastic? I can't tell.

Wait until all the pensions crash in other states.
That's not just the teachers pensions that very few states have fully funded.


Look at Oregon..huge pensions for ALL! At the cost of teachers, police, firemen etc... Bad schools with one of the highest state taxes in America... A little north you have Washington with zero state tax and great schools...lol

So when we look back when this mess was created in the early 1990s we see this...


On November 6, 1990 Walters was elected Democratic governor, carrying 75 of the state’s 77 counties.


And the legislature...



No wonder it is mostly republican today with the crap they did back then... When you say "who's policies" you might want to look to see who was actually in office...lol

Auntie Em! Root cellar! My Ex lives in nebraska.

Does Findlay IL count?? Or Humble TX?

They say that in all states, especially on the east coast.

I've driven through hail the size of golf balls in texas, from Houston to San Antonio but the most scared I've been was in IL in my own room. The weather was biblical.

Mountain tornados don't scare me. 20 yrs in the Yampa Valley and Saratoga WY.

I live in an EQ proof place now. Typhoons are fun. Thank God for Taiwan.

Call someone who gives a rats.

State Question 640 was a citizen-initiated ballot measure that was approved by Oklahoma voters in a special election in March 1992 with 56.2 percent of the vote. The measure amended Article 5, Section 33 of the Oklahoma Constitution to add restrictions on how revenue bills can become law. Under SQ 640, a revenue bill can only become law if: (1) it is approved by a 3/4th vote of both legislative chambers and is signed by the Governor; or (2) it is referred by the legislature to a vote of the people at the next general election and receives majority approval.

Since passage of SQ 640 in 1992, Oklahoma voters have approved only one state question to raise taxes: SQ 713, which increased the tobacco tax in 2004. SQ 723, which would have increased motor vehicle fuel taxes, was defeated in 2005.

okpolicy.org...

So no it wasn't the Democrats that introduced it.

Republicans have also held majorities since then (Oklahoma is heavily red) and haven't done much at all with their very own elected officials to change this law.


State Question 640 placed a constitutional mandate that any revenue bills originating in the Legislature meet strict guidelines for passage. Along with the vote requirement, those bills must be filed in the House rather than the Senate and cannot be adopted in the final five days of the session.

Members of the Oklahoma House have been stymied by the requirement over the past year, in part because of partisan politics. Despite holding a solid majority, Republicans couldn't muster enough of a coalition with Democrats to secure tax hikes. When GOP leadership offered a gross production tax increase that Democrats supported, a bloc of conservative Republicans rallied to oppose it.

nondoc.com...

Again why vote Republican or Conservative if many of them aren't willing to make the necessary change that's hurting the economy?
