Oklahoma Politicians – Whose FOR or AGAINST legalization of Marijuana

Is “Little Dixie” a bad word in McAlester, Oklahoma?

At a medicaid expansion rally in McAlester, Oklahoma it was said that the reason why the Motorcade of Medicaid took the path they took to get to McAlester, Oklahoma was because this is Little Dixie.  One of the ladies in audience sounded like she was offended, and said that they are not suppose to use that word because its associated with KKK and illiteracy.

I have heard the term “Little Dixie” used in describing the politics and culture of McAlester, OK & Pittsburg county Oklahoma (generally).  Actually Ive heard the term “Little Dixie” being used to describe Southeastern Oklahoma & the entire Congressional District 2.  I didn’t realize this until I moved to Southeastern Oklahoma.   Though I have heard the phrase “Yellow dog” & ‘Blue dog” very rarely used in white republican or tea-party circles of Southeastern Oklahoma in reference to their white democrat counterparts in the state; but
the phrase “Little Dixie” is mostly & loosely used by white republicans in Southeastern Oklahoma to categorize white democrats in Congressional District 2 Oklahoma.

I heard what the woman in the video said in reference as to why she disliked the phrase “Little Dixie”, but I’m wondering if she disliked the phrase because it’s a truthful disclosure or a reminder of what she does not want to be said out loud.

Let’s be honest about this Little Dixie thing.. the meaning of the phrase Little Dixie does accurately depict Southeastern Oklahoma.  So please lets not pretend it does not.  I know what “Little Dixie” & Dixiecrat mean, as do most African Americans – even though “Little Dixie” & Dixiecrat is not a term that most blacks use.  Reason being that most blacks don’t use the phrase is because its associated with the same political party that Blacks are associated with themselves.  It does not  mean that blacks adore Dixiecrats.  Its a rock & a hard place for black folks, when there are only 2 political parties to deal with.

The needs and wants of black democrats is not necessarily the same as a Dixiecrat.  Whereas the Dixiecrat wants states rights, most blacks oppose this because it would mean a death sentence them & they would have no protection when they are already racially discriminated against & are severely outnumbered.  Look what happened to North Tulsa (which is not even Little Dixie).  I’ve spoke with several blacks in Southeastern Oklahoma within the past 6 months about their concerns and it appears that they are paying close attention not only due to how Congressional District 2 voted in the last presidential election; but they are especially paying more attention here recently to the obvious racial disparity they are subjected to in the criminal justice system & in employment – which BY THE WAY is a system within this locality that’s controlled NOT by republicans.  Remember, Southeastern Oklahoma particularly in Pittsburg & Hughes County is a democrat stronghold.   I  have heard many of blacks in the area say that they will cast a “retaliation vote”.  I think you (the reader) know what that means.  But only time will tell as to what black democrats in Pittsburg & Hughes county will actually do on voting day.  I have asked them to choose their political candidate wisely, but to pay attention to the ‘”low hanging fruit”  – AKA:  local & state politicians.

What I have not figured out yet is how did this Little Dixie thing occur in Southeastern Oklahoma (or anywhere in Oklahoma for that matter) in the 1st place, considering that Oklahoma was not a slave state.

This video was recorded on July 27, 2013 at Chadick Park in McAlester, OK.

Oklahoma GOP Candidate Larry Boggs says GOP is in CONTROL.

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.

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

This political candidate forum sponsored by Mcalester News-capital, in Mcalester, Oklahoma. This event was held on Oct 16, 2012 at 6pm at the Kiamichi Center in Mcalester. Approximately 200 people attended.

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.

Huh!! Ron Paul Sign in McAlester Oklahoma?? In These Neck of the Woods?? Very Unusual!

Tonite, driving from Walmart getting on to George Nigh Exwy, I spotted a Ron Paul sign.  It was the ONLY political sign in the whole area.. just sitting out there all by it’s lonesome.

Before any Ron Paul supporters start jumping my bones, I want to say that I ain’t got nothing against Ron Paul & in fact I like the guy.. But a Ron Paul sign in these neck of the woods is highly unusual. I didn’t think Ron Paul was even on the radar out here.   In McAlester, OK (or surrounding area of District 2) most Republicans I talk to would say they support Santorum or Romney.   But Ron Paul ??????   This is a first.   I need to find out what the hell is going on.   I’m call up Pittsburg GOP to find out if Paul has a headquarters out here.
