Ali Canada, organizer for Coalition for Medicaid Expansion, explains what will happen if Oklahoma Gov Fallin continues to refuse expanding medicaid by Dec 31st
According to Ali Canada, if Mary Fallin – governor of Oklahoma does not accept Medicaid Expansion program, then all medical programs within the state that are federally funded may get cut off. This could mean shut down of Rural hospitals in Oklahoma. Mr. Canada added that he believes the deadline date for Governor Fallin to expand medicaid is December 31, 2013. Canada also said that even the most conservative governor in the nation – Jan Brewer, has decided to expand medicaid.

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.
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.

Oklahoma GOP senate candidate – Barney Taylor says now is not the time for Oklahoma to outlaw affirmative action. He 100% guarantees lawsuits to follow.
Barney Scott Taylor, a GOP state senate candidate 100% guarantees that if Oklahoma outlaws affirmative action, it will be sued. He said now is not the time for Oklahoma to do away with affirmative action. He brings up the NAACP & ACLU. Taylor says we (Oklahoma) don’t need that. As Taylor considers himself a pragmatist, he pointed out that a pending affirmative action case is before the supreme court (Abigail Fisher vs. University of Texas); & that while he could not answer the question if affirmative action is working because he could not get past the pragmatic part of it. He feels that the whole affirmative action thing could be shot down by the supreme court before the people of Oklahoma can even vote on it.
His view was that it didn’t make any sense for Oklahoma to come up with its own law, while the supreme court case has similar matter still pending. He said that Oklahoma should of waited to see how the supreme court rules on it.

Screen capture of Oklahoma GOP senator approving of message outting GOP candidate Mullin as lawless in television ad.
My oh my….. Illegal firearm purchases, explosives, ATF raids, reckless endangerment, violent criminality, lawlessness, reckless, fatally flawed are just a few of the things linked to republican Markwayne Mullin, according to Oklahoma GOP state senator – George Faught campaign website (as of 9/2012). Oklahoma State Senator Faught who lost to Mullin in GOP runoff for US congress Oklahoma district 2 , did a luke warm endorsement of Mullin via his official campaign website. But that’s not the only thing on his campaign website in reference to Mullin as he used some strong worded characterization of Mullin which is hardly an endorsement for the job as public servant or even entering one’s home to fix the plumbing for that matter … well.. you know… ah…. I wont be calling his plumbing company to fix the faucet. And No .. I wont be voting for Mullin either.
In case Oklahoma & National GOP got wind that some of those pages that were still Live as of 9/18/2012 on Faught’s website & they put pressure on Faught to scrub it down, I had already web captured Faught’s campaign website back in September 19, 2012. The video files were embedded from another external site. When I checked to look at Faught’s campaign sight again I found most of the incriminating stuff against Mullin had been scrubbed off. I figured the power-that-be of the GOP got hold of him.
Considering all this, I found it another matter that’s troubling to me & that was recently brought to my attention since Im blogging stuff that may not be to Mullin’s liking. Its the issue about his campaign allegedly threatening a Claremore Daily Progress female reporter – Salesha Wilken. I hope Mullin nor his campaign play rough with me for my bucking him w/my reporting on the internet. Oh well, I guess time will tell. But I find it necessary to post this issue before matters get turned up a notch – JUST IN CASE!

Russell Turner, republican candidate running for state representative is anti”affirmative action. Turner wants to do away w/affirmative action in Oklahoma & says that it was no longer needed.
Russell Turner a republican running for state representative is anti”affirmative action candidate. There is a proposed abolishing of affirmation action from Oklahoma law that will be on voting ballot in the general election – November 2012. Turner response was that he wants to do away w/affirmative action & that it was no longer needed because he felt it causes division between “our” people.
Turner was also a bit evasive to specific question I asked regarding Hate crime charges of the 2 gunmen who went into Tulsa’s black community killing black citizens on Good Friday. I asked Turner if he thought the 2 men should had been charged w/a hate crime (which the DA was reluctant to charged them with from the onset until Jesse Jackson arrived Tulsa). Turner’s response tended to generalize by saying that he think all crimes are hate crimes. It was difficult for me to get him to answer the question directly.
His opponent, William Fourkiller – a democrat, was interviewed on Affirmative Action law repeal. Fourkiller told me that he believes in the affirmative action law whole heatedly, and said that as a minority himself, he feels that we need that opportunity to not be discriminated against in employment, contracts, etc.. FourKiller added that affirmative law is working as it was intended to work & that there was no reverse discrimination as certain others claimed it was. He did mention that proposed abolishing of affirmative action in Oklahoma, was a political move by a state house member who was seeking to be promoted to speaker of the house. It was not until few days ago that I had learned that a black republican named T.W. Shannon was the 1 who presented this anti-affirmative action initiative. FourKiller said that he was OSU to explain this affirmative action law that is threatened to be abolished by the republican held House of the Oklahoma state legislature. He said that he explained to the NAACP OSU chapter that the Affirmative Action question on the 2012 ballot also affects women & that young women especially need pay attention to this issue as it affects their gender as well. The affirmation law question on the ballot will be SQ (State Question) 759 & that if voters want to keep that law then VOTE NO – which would be a NO VOTE on its removal from Oklahoma law books.
FourKiller currently is a state representative for house district 86 in Oklahoma. District 86 covers northeast Cherokee county, southern Delaware county and all of Adair county.
