State Senator Connie Johnson mentioned that Oklahoma kids are experiencing PTSD when see their parents shot do death (by cops) over marijuana. There’s even PTSD with veterans & they can benefit from medical marijuana, but legislatures are not listening, she said.
Senator Connie Johnson is the leading advocate for marijuana legalization for Oklahoma, who got the discussion going. She is also running for US Senate seat which is being vacated by Tom Coburn (who is retiring).

1 of the organizers for Coalition for Medicaid Expansion rally – Ali Canada summed up Oklahoma as a Right to Starve state. There were discussions at a Motorcade for Medicaid rally in McAlester about republicans forced out union jobs with the promise that NON-union jobs would create more jobs in Oklahoma.
The phrase “Right to Work” is deceptively worded. At a glance, that phrase implies that it gives people the right to work. But in reality, the phrase may had been worded this way so as to trick voters. Right to Work is an ANTI union movement for lower paying jobs like what you see at McDonald’s & Burger King. In essence POVERTY WAGES. As it turned out the Anti-union law (deceptively worded as Right to Work) did not produce jobs as the republicans had promised.
Ali Canada who is also 1 of the directors of the Coalition of Black Trade Unionist in Tulsa said that the Southeastern Oklahoma Labor Council is working on getting rid of the ANTI-union law, by putting it before the voters n the state ballot for 2016.
The event was videoed at Chadick Park in McAlester, OK on July 27, 2013 and coordinated by Coalition for Medicaid Expansion. The group organized a Motorcade for Medicaid which toured 12 Oklahoma cities/towns in a single day. McAlester, Oklahoma was its last stop.

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).
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.
Oklahoma GOP senator outted GOP candidate Markwayne Mullin as a Lawless man. Explosives & ATF raid? What? Oh lord!!
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!
