Teetotalers Becoming the "In" Crowd

  A growing crowd of pop culture icons and public leaders are coming out as teetotalers.  With GW Bush and several noted entertainers, living without recreational drugs(including booze) was a decidedly private matter. But Donald Trump is a bit more open about his lifestyle choice.   The old guard of Teetotalers were generally more judgmental and imposing, especially the religiously-motivated prohibition sy […]

Tulsa GOP Chair Moves To Undermine All Precinct Delegations

  In an unprecedented move, Tulsa County Chairman, Mike Ford, is now adding his own roster of delegates to the county convention, scheduled for March 25th.  The move clearly undermines the authority of the precinct committees to select their own delegates to the county convention.  In a letter sent out within the past hours, Ford declares a major failure to organize the county’s several hundred precincts. Participation is fair below any in recorded his […]

Exiling Oklahomans Via Private Prisons

  Perhaps one of the worst policies of Gov. Frank Keating (and most controversial at the time) was the idea of shipping out our massively growing prison population to businessmen who set up corporate prison compounds.  Keating was a former FBI agent and he had all the mindset of a “get tough” authoritarian.  He was convinced that Oklahoma would be a far safer and more civil society if we just had the determinat […]
