NAACP – Ardmore Chapter Public meeting Nov. 1, 2012. Crash course on how to vote on Affirmative Action Question & other ballot items in General Election on 11/6/2012

Nov. 1, 2012, in Ardmore Oklahoma the NAACP will be hosting a community meeting to provide information, and to answer questions about several ballot items that Oklahomans will be voting on in the general election on Tuesday – November 6, 2012. There will also be sample ballots shown at this meeting. Also several guest speakers will be present: Tom Cole, RJ Harris, Ardmore Chamber of Commerce, Pat 0wnbey, Carter County Commissioners, Donna Marie Bebo, Brian Spencer.

Ms. Liz Jenkins Williams the president of the Ardmore Chapter of NAACP said that 1 of the main focus of discussion at this meeting will be the Oklahoma SQ (state question) 759, which is an initiative to get rid of affirmative action. An Oklahoma GOP controlled legislature is unashamedly against affirmative action. BOTTOM LINE on HOW TO VOTE on this ballot initiative is to VOTE NO on SQ 759. Also the Carter county propositions 1-3 which will be on the ballot will be discussed. This is a tax issue that not everyone will benefit from.

Time & location of this meeting will be from 7pm – 9pm at the 31 Burton, Ardmore, Oklahoma (American Legion Hall 31).

SE Oklahomans Presently have NO VOICE on its water use, says J. Paul Lane (OK-D)

Paul Lane doesn’t feel that SE Oklahoma water should be sold to Texas & OKC area as its in the interest of SE Oklahoma economic development to keep it’s water.  He added that SE Oklahoma should have a voice on how its water is to be used, and that presently SE Oklahoma has NO say in the matter .  Paul said that if elected  he would file a companion bill w/state senator Brian Renagar (D-OK  House District 17) status to make sure we have regional water boards, so that SE Oklahoman  have a voice.

Lane’s opponent who is GOP nominee Larry Boggs at this political candidate forum did not offer any solution , but he did agree w/ Lane’s solution, but that SE Oklahoma had better vote for a Republican or we in SE Oklahoma will get no water rights because the republicans are in control.

The moderator’s question posed to J. Paul Lane was:  “The possible sale of SE Oklahoma water to Texas & Oklahoma City area still remains unresolved. What is your stance on selling SE Oklahoma water to Texas & OKC area & if there is anything you can do to reinforce what you think should or should not be done regarding the matter ?”.

J. Paul Lane is the democrat nominee seeking election to the Oklahoma Senate District 7 that is being vacated by Richard C. Lerblance (democrat).  Lane’s opponent is Larry Boggs the Republican nominee.  Election is November 6, 2012.

Rob Wallace (D-OK) “Nobody in Washington is going to intimidate me .. I’ll go toe-to-toe”

Rob Wallace (OK-D) for US Congress said SE Oklahomans need to send someone to capital hill who knows how to go toe-to-toe, as he has the experience in dealing w/the worst people imaginable. Wallace said that NOBODY in Washington is going to intimidate him.   He also said that the political system has been a system of hired voices, & further indicated that regular folks don’t have the bucks to hire K-street lobbyist to carry their voice.

Wallace said the system has become a set of members who only listens to hired voices.  Therefore, the only way for people in SE Oklahoma to get heard, he added, was for them to send someone from this area who will stand up to the special interest.

The moderator’s question posed to Rob Wallace was:”Gridlock is clogging up Capital Hill & with the 2 major parities often polarized to the detriment of the nation as a whole, and as a freshman US Representative what can you do to try to break down the lock jam that often occurs on capital hill?”.

Robert (Rob) Wallace, a democrat & Former Assistant US Attorney General is running for the office of US congress (2nd congressional district Oklahoma). His opponent is Marywayne Mullin — a republican & local plumber. The seat they both seek was held by democrat Dan Boren who is retiring & have held that seat since 2005. US Congressional district 2 of Oklahoma is the only democrat district in the entire state. Therefore, its imperative that the democrats hold on to that district, as the republicans are trying to turn the entire state Red to impair political balance. The election will be November 6, 2012.

Okla voter charge Larry Boggs as a Lying Radical Right-wing Republican for red-herring on gun rights

Pittsburg county voter expressed GOP senate candidate Larry Boggs angered him because he felt Boggs lied about Obama’s would abolish 2nd amendment rights if relected. And that Boggs tried to make a connection between the 2. This voter said that Obama does not have the power to abolish the 2nd amendment. He added that Mr. Boggs was a “radical right wing republican” doing a red herring.

When asked if he would vote for Boggs, needless to say he replied no. The lady sitting next to him responded that they would also be voting for Obama.

Larry Boggs is the republican nominee seeking election to the Oklahoma Senate District 7 that is being vacated by Richard C. Lerblance (democrat). His opponent is J. Paul Lane, the democratic nominee. Election is November 6, 2012.

GOP Larry Boggs Attacks Obama, gets fierce opposition from Audience at Debate – McAlester Oklahoma

GOP senate candidate Larry Bogg attacks Obama at debate. Get fierce opposition from audience.

GOP senate candidate Larry Bogg attacks Obama at debate. Get fierce opposition from audience. McAlester, Oklahoma – candidate forum – 10/16/2012

GOP senate candidate Larry Boggs did a throw-down on Obama & was met w/fierce opposition by Obama supporters at candidate forum in McAlester Oklahoma. Boggs & Obama supporters got into argument when he said Obama, if elected will control guns. And that he, as a NRA member will do what ever he can to get Obama out of office. He & his opponent J Paul Lane were given the question what would they do to protect 2nd amendment rights if Obama was re-elected. He said that Obama would control guns, that when the sparks flew.

Who ever the voter in the crowd that sent that question to the moderator, did Larry Boggs a dis-service. When he got into an argument w/the audience & then got engaged, he c could had lost the election. Even the law enforcement in the audience didn’t look too happy w/ Boggs. In a way I felt bad for Boggs because personally I like him. Yes, I have a soft spot for country boys. But this is politics & its not kool for a politician to engage in hostile exchanges w/the audience. Sorry. However, Lane, on the other hand, was smooth, calm & focused. Lane simply responded that as a military veteran he’s committed to protecting the 2nd amendment rights.

Larry Boggs is the republican nominee seeking election to the Oklahoma Senate District 7 that is being vacated by Richard C. Lerblance (democrat). His opponent is J. Paul Lane, the democratic nominee. Election is November 6, 2012.
