Oklahoma GOP candidate Larry Boggs telling SE Oklahoma voters that GOP is in CONTROL. Either vote for him or GOP senate wont let Citizens have voice about their water.

Larry Boggs, republican candidate for Oklahoma state senate tells SE Oklahoma voters that the GOP is in control & that unless we vote for a GOP senator, then the GOP controlled state senate are not gonna approve our water rights bill nor hear our voices. SE Oklahoma near McAlester area is mostly democrat.

The frightening part of all this is that the subject matter Boggs was referring to was about SE Oklahomans water rights Bill. I dont like my water being held hostage like this.

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.

Another member – Ronda Talley, at the January 26, 2012 meeting  made motion to not approve the 2011 annual meeting minutes. The motion overwhelming carried to not approve those minutes.
