Oklahoma Watchman: The Dog & Pony Show They Call A 'Budget'

THE DOG AND PONY SHOW THEY CALL A BUDGET KICKING THE CAN DOWN THE ROAD AGAIN
By the Watchman

Last night the State Constitutional mandate for passing a budget passed without so much as a whisper from the Governor. For many years now you have seen us expose the liberal leanings of a vast majority of our elected officials. Most of you have ignored the warnings and the proof that we have provided so far. The debacle at the Capital over taxes and the budget shortfall only serves to highlight our point. This article should be proof enough by its self that a tax increase is not needed Liberal Donor to Group Pushing Okla. Tax Hike Avoided Millions in Taxes – Washington Free Beacon. The individual here, George Kaiser has a deep rooted history of feeding off the middle class tax payers. He made millions from the Obama administration scam known as Solyndra while the middle class tax payers paid the bill. It truly seems that the two parties have switch roles. It is now the Democrats in office who are fighting the tax increases instead of the Republicans.

Fallin's Negligence of Duty, & The Cost To Taxpayers

NEGLEGIENCE OF DUTY RESULTS

IN THE CITIZENS HAVING TO SUFFER THE PAIN IN THEIR WALLETS
By the Watchman
  Once again we find the leader of the state failing to make plans for what she knew was coming. Is this due to her lack of trust in the drunk she hired? Is it due to her lack of intelligence? We believe it’s neither of those. We believe it is an outright display of her liberal tax and spend mentality that has always been there. Her spending habit is having a negative effect on our economy and our ability to draw new industries to the state of Oklahoma. It has strengthened the legislature’s ability to pass tax increases and fee increases on to the public instead of taking the hard step of decreasing the size of government. Her actions have made what is considered the reddest state in the union more like the purplest state in the union.
 
Oklahoma Watchman: Ignorance In The Oil & Gas Industry

 THE WATCHMAN IGNORANCE IN THE OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY AND THE LEGISLATURE IS TO BLAME

Don’t you love it when individuals that are supposed to be very intelligent in a certain field can argue about a subject and leave the biggest monkey on the back of the subject completely out of the discussion? We do. In fact we like it so much that it keeps us laughing all year long. Not only is our state morally bankrupt, but it’s beginning to look like it’s intellectually bankrupt, on the governance side, too…

Mullin Feels No Need To Represent His Constituents

AN OKLAHOMA REPRESENTATIVE FEELS NO NEED TO REPRESENT HIS CONSTITUENTS
By the Watchman
This is a tale of cowardice and misrepresentation of one of our U.S. Representatives. It also shows that he is willing to cheat to stay in office. We started looking at him when this story crossed our news feed. He has officially filed to run for office in the 2018 elections. There’s a campaign promise broken.
When he was first running for office he said he wouldn’t seek more than three terms. The official filing for office comes one day after being officially warned by the Federal Election Commission that he had accepted donations and made expenditures on his 2018 campaign without filing official candidacy for the 2018 cycle. What was he trying to do?
