GOP Sen candidate 100% GUARANTEE Oklahoma 2B SUED if Affirmative Action is abolished

Oklahoma GOP senate candidate - Barney Taylor says now is not the time for Oklahoma to outlaw affirmative action. He 100% guarantees lawsuits to follow.

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.

There is a proposed eradication of affirmation action from Oklahoma law that will on voting ballot in the general election – November 2012. It was not until later on that I had learned that a black republican named T.W. Shannon was the 1 who presented this anti-affirmative action initiative.

Barney Taylor is running for Oklahoma state senate district 9, which covers Muskogee & Wagoner county. The election is November 2012.

His opponent, Earl Garrison, a democrat is an incumbent. Garrison was not present at this forum. It was announced that Garrison could not be present due to prior engagement to attend a hall of fame induction of his friend.

Oklahoma GOP senate candidate Wayne Shaw dont know what 10th amendment is? For real?

Its been reported that Wayne Shaw, the 2012 GOP candidate for Oklahoma senate district 3, does not know what the 10th amendment is, according to Qadoshyah Fish.   Shaw was a no show at the candidate forum in Tahlequah, Oklahoma for Oct 9,2012.   He is running against democrat Jim Bynum for this seat.  Jim Wilson (democrat) is not running for reelection.

Its agreed that Jim Bynum political signs have flooded the area & that there was no Shaw activity on the ground. Therefore, it’s a safe bet that Bynum is favored to win this election.

Ms. Fish, said that when Shaw spoke in her area, he responded that he did not know what the 10th amendment was; and further indicated that its a mystery as to how he beat out Cyndi McArtor in GOP primary, who was said to be much more articulate & knowledgeable of the issues.

The general election is November 2012. Oklahoma senate district 2 includes Tahlequah & Stillwell Oklahoma.

Walmart employee for GOP Senate says folks w/tattoos & mohawks are UNEMPLOYABLE – Oklahoma

The GOP – Barney Taylor, a Walmart employee seeking election to State senate maintains that folks going to Walmart w/tattoos & mohawks are not employable

At political forum – the question to Oklahoma GOP state senate candidate (also Walmart employee) Barney Taylor: “Do you think its possible to be pro-life & deprive people of healthcare”.   Taylor responded that folks (coming in Muskogee Walmart where he works) covered in tattoos & green spiked mohawks,  are unemployable; and regarding their need for healthcare, he added “Why should we have to pay for you”.    This was videoed at the Armory center in Tahlequah, Oklahoma on October 9, 2012 at a candidate political forum sponsored by Tahlequah chamber of commerce. After the political forum in Tahlequah Oklahoma I asked Barney Taylor about his remarks at this forum about folks in Walmart w/tattoos & mohawks not being employable.   The context in which it was said led me to believe that Walmart did not hire job applicants w/tattoos & mohawk hairdos  or that at least it was his firm view of such people.   So I asked for more details.  He still maintained that such individuals are unemployable.  This interview was videoed at the Armory center in Tahlequah, Oklahoma on October 9, 2012 after a political forum sponsored by Tahlequah chamber of commerce. Barney Taylor is running for Oklahoma state senate district 9, which covers Muskogee & Wagoner county.   The election is November 2012. His opponent, Earl Garrison, a democrat is an incumbent.

Howard Houchen (R-OK) for State Senate – Wants Bills to Get Fair Hearing at State Capitol (HR1004)

Howard Houchen is running for Oklahoma state senate (District 5) in 2012 to beat out democrat Jerry Ellis (incumbent).  Since both of these candidates are in different political parties, they will be on ballot in general election in November.

When asked Houchen about his position on open meetings (open government rule) at the state capital, he said that he supported HR1004 petition and that his opponent  Jerry Ellis did not.  There were talks amongst Oklahoma State legislatures about allowing all representatives discuss bills so that it was not left up to the chairman to arbitrarily kill it without discussion.  Then suddenly they decided against it.  Here’s the website that explains the HR1004 petition.

Also Houchen informed me that if Jerry Ellis were to win, that he could not fulfill his full term of office.    Since this was the case with Ellis, Houchen added  that he wanted to give the people a voice throughout the entire legislative process.

Oklahoma State senate district #5 covers the following 5 counties:  Atoka (eastern portion) , Choctaw (entirety), Leflore (southern portion), McCurtain (entirety) and Pushmataha (entirety).

The general election is November 6, 2012.

This interview was done at Oklahoma GOP state convention on May 12, 2012 at Embassy Suites in Norman, Oklahoma.
