Senator James Inhofe disproves all of the Known Science

And yesterday in the hallowed chambers of the United States Senate, our illustrious Senator James Inhofe disproved all of the known science on the subject was one great big hoax. How did he accomplish that magnificent feat you ask? It was so simply done as could have been done by a moron (not pointing any fingers here). He simply went outside the chambers made a snowball came in announced it was a cold winter and promptly threw the snowball at another senator and declared without a doubt global warming was a hoax.

What verve, what panache! 99% of the scientific world has declared global warming and man-made climate change to be a proven fact and with one simple snowball Jim Inhofe proved them to be false. Wow! Will wonders never cease. Let us now bow down to the Gods of the Marketplace, all-knowing and brilliant. Jim has so declared that he knows infinitely more that all the scientists in the world put together and he did that by just making a snowball.

I know here I am dissing another GOPer. Gosh but they make it so easy. They have so many that even a lot of people in their own party have declared them to be crazy. New York GOP Representative Peter King no slouch when in comes to being off to the right declared yesterday on camera that his party contained a lot of crazy people when he said they (the crazies in his party) shouldn’t be compromising the security of our nation and its citizens by trying to hold Homeland Security hostage.

So it isn’t just me who thinks the GOP has a lot of kooks residing within its party bounds. And it is kind of nice to know even wild-eyed Ted Cruz won’t filibuster the bill to fund Homeland Security in the senate. Yes wonders may never cease. I am thankful that there still is a modicum of sanity in the Grand Old Party of Lincoln. How long that sanity will prevail is anybody’s guess.

And Jim ole boy, I don’t think you need worry about global warming anyway. There is a place where there are no snowballs, hopefully you won’t have to find that out.

Global warming? Global warming? That’s a hoax right?

OKC: First-ever Muslim Day

The first-ever Muslim day at the state legislature in Oklahoma came off and was well attended thanks to the Oklahoma conference of churches. Also, thanks go to the Capitol Police and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol who kept order and make sure at things went smoothly.

One wonders when the dark element in Oklahoma that loves to trash Islam and people who who are members of the Islamic faith will finally realize that Oklahoma Muslims are part of the fabric of our state and have been for many many years? They live here they work here and they are very good citizens of the state not much different from a lot of other Oklahomans who live work and love this state.

Islam is a religion practiced by a lot of people across the world, just like Christianity and Judaism it has its radicals who believe things as they wish them to be not as they are. When we refuse to try to understand where other people are coming from that’s when we lose our moral compass.

Hating someone because of their religion when you don’t know exactly what that religion is all about doesn’t make any sense. The Islamic day at the state legislature was trying to promote an understanding of what Islam is and what it means to be Islamic in Oklahoma.

They were promoting love and understanding not hate. Hate drives too many people in this state to believe things that are not true and when they have a opportunity to know the truth they turn their backs.

Due to work concerns I was not able to attend the Islamic day at the state legislature but I know Adam Soltani. He spoke at our recent labor religion breakfast and gave a wonderful speech that was very enlightening to a lot of the people who attended our breakfast. They came away with a different point of view on the Islamic faith.

We must learn to work together and live together in this world or as Benjamin Franklin said at the onset of the American Revolution,

“We must all hang together or we shall inevitably hang separately.”

This country was founded on the idea of religious freedom and the practice thereof. As Thomas Jefferson said,

“We are not a Christian nation we are a nation in which a majority of our citizens are Christian.”

This nation has always been about religious freedom and the freedom to worship as you choose. Blaming American Muslims for the act of radicals in the Middle East makes absolutely no sense at all. Any more than blaming all Christians for the acts of the KKK.

And hate for the sake of hating makes no sense either. Has Dr King once said,

“Hate cannot drive out hate only love can do that.”

I disagree with a lot of people but I don’t hate them just because I disagree with them.

Hating someone because of their religious convictions is absolutely ridiculous.

The Republican Dark Age – ‘Jim Inhofe ‘Disproves’ Climate Change With A Snowball’

When you don’t know the difference, don’t
understand the difference and deny the
difference between weather and climate.

Oklahoma Rep. Jim Inhofe took to the Senate
floor to once again speak out against the
existence of climate change. This time,
however, he brought a snowball’.

“In case we have forgotten – because we keep
hearing that 2014 has been the warmest year on
record – I ask the chair, do you know what
this is? It’s a snowball from outside here. So
it’s very, very cold out.”

OKLAHOMA CITY — As Black History Month comes to an end, NewsChannel 4 takes a moment to look at the history of the Deep Deuce District in Oklahoma City.

The district has revived, thanks to one key individual who played a pivotal role in the development of northeast Oklahoma City.

The Deep Deuce District is home to some favorite stops and shops in the metro. It is a historical community that is a central place for the jazz and blues scene in OKC. It has been home to many legendary musicians, like Charlie Christian, Dorothy Ellis, and Jimmy Rushing.

Deep Deuce was also one of the largest African American neighborhoods in Oklahoma City.

“Deep Deuce was the Afro American/Black business district of Oklahoma City.”

Mark Lyons is the great-grandson to  Sydney Daniel Lyons. Sydney was a prominent entrepreneur in Oklahoma during the early 20th century. Traveling from Texas…

Oklahoma Sally Kern and the Good Ol’ Days

Oklahoma back to the good old days. Sally Kern and company are trying mightily to erase the past 50 years and take us back in Oklahoma to those ‘thrilling days of yesteryear’. And what was so thrilling about them? Well, men were men and women were staying at home like good little wives and making cookies and babies and they always had daddy’s slippers and his pipe ready and when he stepped through the door after a long hard day in the rat race.

Wait! Just one minute! I was a teenager in those thrilling days of yesteryear. My mom worked 40 hours plus in a pants factory, me and my brother cleaned house and cooked supper. We didn’t hand anyone any slippers at the front door. Those were thrilling days Sally?

I don’t think so. I went to school, worked at the Pontiac house as parts manager, worked at the drive in taking tickets, got up at 4 in the morning to deliver papers in Davidson Oklahoma 18 miles away, came back helped mom cook breakfast and then she headed out to the pants factory and I took my brother to school and I went to the Pontiac house to work until 10:30am at which time I headed to school myself for a few hours before returning to the Pontiac House. What was so thrilling about them days I ask you Silly Sally?

Sally and her ilk don’t have a clue about them good old days because they never had to live through them. Reports on a regular basis of the fire bombing of Black churches all over the south. Teenagers being abducted and murdered just because they deigned to fight for civil rights for all. Gays being beaten and marginalized. American citizens denied the right to vote. Separate schools, separate water fountains, separate entrances to places of business.

Lodging denied because of the color of one’s skin. Tacit denial of service to a customer because they were Black or Asian or Hispanic. Sally please explain to me how your onerous bills will help make things better for Oklahoma? Explain to me Sally where your Christian values come from? I went to church as a kid. I listened to the preacher preach about Christ’s love for all. I was taught that Christ meant love not hate. Where did you go to church Sally? How is what you spew forth have any thing to do with Christ or Christian Values?

Sally you claim to follow Christ but all you offer hate is not love. The Christ I know about wasn’t about hate and division He was about love, kindness, peace, compassion and the inclusiveness for all not just a certain few. Where is it written that Christ didn’t love Gays, Lesbians, Jews, Muslims? That’s not in any text about Christ I have ever read Sally.

Why Sally do you preach hate? Hate only breeds more hate. As Dr. King said, “Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that!” Do you even know who Dr. King was or what he was all about Sally? I wonder if you do? And even as I disagree with your perceptions, thoughts and ideas I harbor no hate or animosity towards you. I pity you and I pray that one day hate will not fill your heart. That someday you too will know the true meaning of ‘love thy neighbor as thyself’. Will that day ever be?

Vagina News: State representative in Idaho wanted to have women swallow a camera

Where do they get them at? State representative in Idaho wanted to have women swallow a camera so doctors could look at a woman’s vagina from her stomach. He was so well versed on a woman’s anatomy that he didn’t know the two are not connected.

I won’t comment on his party affiliation, but it’s pretty clear what party. And I won’t question his intellect except to say that he doesn’t seem to have any.

But people like him are just another reason that men shouldn’t be trying to assert control over women’s bodies in any way, because they are not smart enough to know anything about them. And I don’t question so much his ignorance as I do the ignorance of the people who voted for him.

It just proves up what I have always suspected that when we vote for an idiot that’s pretty much what we get, an idiot. He pretty much measures up to the guy in South Carolina who likened women to a cut of meat. And who he thought shouldn’t be serving in an elected position. To my mind he’s the one who shouldn’t be serving in an elected position.

It’s amazing after more than 50 years we still have people who believe women should stay home cook and bake and get pregnant. Again Forrest Gump was right “Stupid is as stupid does.”

I have to believe that not everybody in that other party is that dumb, but they sure are a bunch of them in that party that are. We have a lot of people who are willing to come up and defend their ignorance. And the scary part is vote for them.

Know Your States Rights

When Truman came out on Civil Rights many DEMs formed what they called the “States Rights Democratic Party” in order to thwart the election of either  Truman or Dewey (1948)  The States’ Rights Democratic Party opposed racial integration and wanted to retain Jim Crow laws and white supremacy in the face of possible federal intervention. This new party was extremely not cool. Their candidate, Strom Thurman, once said,

“Segregation in the South is honest, open and aboveboard…”

He lost. Yet, he took a good portion of the old Democratic vote with him. What was funny was that folks thought that since the Democrats were so split on the issue of segregation the election would surely go to Dewey with a glorious landslide.  News papers ran on the big day announcing Dewey’s “Big win.” But as we know, Truman won and the Civil Rights era began.

The States Rights Party fizzed away right after the election but their voters were still there boiling about and holding on to that segregation idea while no longer being a dynamite part of the National Democratic Party. DEMs became traitors in their eyes.

In the 1948 election, however, they would not be Democrats; they would be the States’ Rights Democrats–a new political force to reckon with. And. So sad. They lost.

States Rights Party platform back in 1948  stated:

“We stand for the segregation of the races and the racial integrity of each race; the constitutional right to choose one’s associates; to accept private employment without governmental interference, and to earn one’s living in any lawful way. We oppose the elimination of segregation, the repeal of miscegenation statutes, the control of private employment by Federal bureaucrats called for by the misnamed civil rights program. We favor home-rule, local self-government and a minimum interference with individual rights.”

These were pissed off Democrats splitting off too make their own Party. Their platform went on to say:

“We call upon all Democrats and upon all other loyal Americans who are opposed to totalitarianism at home and abroad to unite with us in ignominiously defeating Harry S. Truman, Thomas E. Dewey and every other candidate for public office who would establish a Police Nation in the United States of America.”

Yep, the SRP died away right after the 1948 election but the State Rights vote was still out there as a hefty quantity of voters in America. What became of them? What happened to the States Right’s Party? Interestingly, Nixon later wooed their votes for his election–they became his pawn, so to speak, and we got Nixon for better or worse. These voters’ exodus from the “evil” DEM party to the “godly” GOP was pretty much complete by the time Reagan took office.

Today, I can’t help but always think of those old Dixiecrats when I hear the term, “States Rights.”
