  •  Are you sure? Because it sure sounds like it to me (0+ / 0-)

    You think just because it's bad here, that there are no problems elsewhere?

    Yes, that's why women are having to fight for their rights nationally. Because the Liberal Inquisition isn't paying attention?

    And that whole Military-Rape thing against women, where was the liberal inquisition on that one 20 effing years ago? At Starbucks?

    Gosh to hear you guys say it, all the problems we have in this nation come from Oklahoma.

    Tell me, did we pass Citizens United single handedly too? Does Oklahoma pull the strings on Justice Scalia to make his jaw clack?

    Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training (Zed, MIB).

    •  You're right (0+ / 0-)

      Oklahoma is just as liberal as any other state.

      •  No that's not what I am saying (0+ / 0-)

        But I am saying that the very bad things that we deal with as a nation, do not all originate from Oklahoma, and even those that might, are not problems exclusive to Oklahoma.

        I live here. I get pissed off about these issues too. However I still see good people here, even those I don't agree with on every little thing, doing their best to make Oklahoma and the world a better place.

        Yes, Oklahoma is a red state. But please do not deny that the definitions of left and right have slide ever further to the right for decades. And that is in part because people on the left ignored a problem that just continued to grow.

        And now here we are.

        Oklahoma might be representative of that problem, but it is not the exclusive source of said problem.

        Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training (Zed, MIB).
