Legislators! Follow The Law!


WOULD IT BE TO MUCH TO ASK THATOUR OWN LEGISLATORS FOLLOW THE RULE OF THE LAW?

By the Watchman. 

  Our state legislature is spending like a bunch of drunk sailors. Most people in America understand the basics of finances. You should never spend more than you can afford. So why is our legislature doing so and doing it in violation of the State Constitution and the blessing of the Governor on top of that. Why hasn't the Attorney General stepped in and brought this to a halt? What kind of idiocy is ruling our state? This is idiotic.

  The first article of interest we found was this Update: House, Senate committees approve $6.9 billion general appropriations bill | Capitol Report | tulsaworld.com. Finally they reach a possible agreement, or did them. Instead of a tobacco tax of $1.50 they changed it to a fee of $1.50. There hope is to avoid the fact that they passed the deadline for revenue raising measures by the chancing of a few words. Most of the legislation being passed with less than the required supermajority that is required by law. We are a nation of laws and a state of laws. Since when did the elected members of our state feel that they had the authority to break the law anytime they felt like it didn't suit them.

The Dog & Pony Show They Call A 'Budget'




THE DOG AND PONY SHOW THEY CALL A BUDGET
KICKING THE CAN DOWN THE ROAD AGAIN
By the Watchman

Last night the State Constitutional mandate for passing a budget passed without so much as a whisper from the Governor. For many years now you have seen us expose the liberal leanings of a vast majority of our elected officials. Most of you have ignored the warnings and the proof that we have provided so far. The debacle at the Capital over taxes and the budget shortfall only serves to highlight our point. This article should be proof enough by its self that a tax increase is not needed Liberal Donor to Group Pushing Okla. Tax Hike Avoided Millions in Taxes - Washington Free Beacon. The individual here, George Kaiser has a deep rooted history of feeding off the middle class tax payers. He made millions from the Obama administration scam known as Solyndra while the middle class tax payers paid the bill. It truly seems that the two parties have switch roles. It is now the Democrats in office who are fighting the tax increases instead of the Republicans.

Fallin's Negligence of Duty, & The Cost To Taxpayers

NEGLEGIENCE OF DUTY RESULTS
IN THE CITIZENS HAVING TO SUFFER THE PAIN IN THEIR WALLETS
By the Watchman
  Once again we find the leader of the state failing to make plans for what she knew was coming. Is this due to her lack of trust in the drunk she hired? Is it due to her lack of intelligence? We believe it's neither of those. We believe it is an outright display of her liberal tax and spend mentality that has always been there. Her spending habit is having a negative effect on our economy and our ability to draw new industries to the state of Oklahoma. It has strengthened the legislature's ability to pass tax increases and fee increases on to the public instead of taking the hard step of decreasing the size of government. Her actions have made what is considered the reddest state in the union more like the purplest state in the union.

  We began by going to Governor Mary Fallin's Wikipedia page here Mary Fallin - Wikipedia. We went there because it gave us the most up to date information on the Governor. This site covers her political career from her first term as a State Representative right through to her current term as Governor. There are many surprises in here that people should know.

Leslie Osborn Never Met A Tax She Didn't Like


 SHE NEVER MET A TAX INCREASE SHE DIDN'T LIKE
AS LONG AS IT PROTECTS THE TAX CREDITS THEY GIVE TO THEIR DONORS
THE WATCHMAN

Here we are near the end of the legislative session and we still haven't come to an agreement on a budget. Every single Senator and Representative at the Capital was fully aware that there would be a budget shortfall this year. In fact this is the third consecutive year in a row that there has been a shortfall. What we are witnessing is a complete lack of common since on the part of our legislators. They have proven that they are incapable of following even the simple rule of the six Ps. Those six Ps are simple. Proper Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance. The one constant theme coming from our elected officials, including the Governor, is generating new sources of tax revenue. That's double talk for tax increases.

What brought our attention to this story was this article . We can't help but wonder if the Chair of the Appropriations Committee wasn't the price paid for a vote to be the Speaker by Mr. McCall. Who in their right mind would put an individual who has a RINO index score of 30 into a position of so much power? It would appear that the tax and spend liberals disguised as Republicans would continue to run the state in an unofficial capacity.

Ignorance In The Oil & Gas Industry

 

THE WATCHMAN

 IGNORANCE IN THE OIL AND GAS INDUSTRYAND THE LEGISLATURE IS TO BLAME

Don't you love it when individuals that are supposed to be very intelligent in a certain field can argue about a subject and leave the biggest monkey on the back of the subject completely out of the discussion? We do. In fact we like it so much that it keeps us laughing all year long. Not only is our state morally bankrupt, but it's beginning to look like it's intellectually bankrupt, on the governance side, too.

We first became interested in this story when we read this John Tidwell: An irresponsible solution for Oklahoma's budget shortfall | Other voices | tulsaworld.com. He starts his article off by saying that it's time for a dose of honesty and we would agree to a point. He does bring up the center piece of the problem. That is the tax credits given to the Oil and Gas industry. The numerous tax proposals that have been made are ludicrous. Uncontrolled spending is no reason to tax your citizens out of state. The claim that raising the taxes on the oil and gas production is something that must be done. When the citizens of Oklahoma were hurting as much as if not worse than the oil and gas companies the received nothing.

Mullin Feels No Need To Represent His Constituents

AN OKLAHOMA REPRESENTATIVE FEELS NO NEED TO REPRESENT HIS CONSTITUENTS
By the Watchman
This is a tale of cowardice and misrepresentation of one of our U.S. Representatives. It also shows that he is willing to cheat to stay in office. We started looking at him when this story crossed our news feed. He has officially filed to run for office in the 2018 elections. There's a campaign promise broken.

When he was first running for office he said he wouldn't seek more than three terms. The official filing for office comes one day after being officially warned by the Federal Election Commission that he had accepted donations and made expenditures on his 2018 campaign without filing official candidacy for the 2018 cycle. What was he trying to do?

Republicans Receiving Help From George soros


THE REPUBLICANS THAT
RECEIVED FUNDS FROM GEORGE SOROS GROUPS
THE WATCHMAN 
  This article came across our news feeds and we thought that you would be interested in seeing it. We urge you to open the link and read the list here (https://goo.gl/8cXLbw). This list includes some of those we think as stalwarts of the Conservative Republican Party and even a former contender for the candidacy as President for the Republican Party.
  This is just a short article, however it should get every single voter out there thinking about the candidate they are voting for. George Soros is a fictitious name. He was born George Schwartz. A Hungarian Jew who was assigned the tasked of handing out orders of deportation to fellow Jews during WWII. This is verified here George Soros - Wikipedia. In our eyes that makes him a war criminal. Why is he allowed to be in this country? Why wasn't he prosecuted? Why are all these politicians selling out to him?
