    A fellow sooner. But then again I left the state back when they still had dems in their congressional delegation. However it was going hard red even back back then.

    Good luck.

      climate change and the resultant extreme weather was the tipping point for Oklahoma.  People's social issues and political convictions are far more fluid than we think.  When radical weather events are killing you and your friends it's amazing how the list of issues can change.

      I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.

        about the idiot from Oklahoma who wants an apology to the state for trying to do something about climate change? IQ tests for legislators are definitely warranted! This guy is on track to top the legendary Ernest Istook who was promoting a bill to bar minors from legally accessing birth control and when asked if this wouldn't cause more unplanned pregnancies and hence abortions, said no because teenagers would just stop having sex.

        Did they poison the water with Stupid down there or something?
