Say What?? A Republican Gave Money to a Democrat? And Wants a Promotion?

What IS Oklahoma doing with a Democrat for a Governor? That question bugs me every time I hear about something else that the fine fellow vetoes, such as the Sovereignty Resolution in 2009 (which the OK Legislature promptly over rode), or more recently, the Firearms Freedom Act.

Perhaps the answer to how a Democrat opposed to State Sovereignty and the Second Amendment (read that as a Constitutional ignoramus) can be found by picking up a few rocks around the state and seeing what crawls out from under them. Yes, an unpleasant business to be sure.

One slimey thing uncovered recently is the donation by Oklahoma U.S. Congresswoman Mary Fallin to the Governor’s inaugural fund in 2003. Rep. Fallin is currently running for Governor.

She is a Republican.

One of her Oklahoma supporters, Ron Black, a radio show host, tried to pooh-pooh the contribution by noting that such donations are standard practice.

Really? Hmm. Common practice? Sure. It actually rather makes sense, considering the composition of too much of the Republican party these days.

Black also tried to explain that Fallin contributed not to Governor Henry’s campaign, but to his inaugural ball.  Ok…I’m sorry, but does that statement strike anyone else as something tangentially related to “it depends on what the meaning of is is”?

Another of Fallin’s supporters, “Okie from Muskogie”, also tried the hair-splitting thing, too. It’s not a “contribution” to the guy’s campaign, so move along folks, nothing to see here.

Facebook discussion on Fallin ball contribution prior to editing

Avid supporters’ parsing of words doesn’t surprise me anymore – but the acceptance of such nonsense explanations by too many people still does. (See Facebook snap. Black’s explanation seemed to satisfy most, or at least so it appears. One known voice of gentle dissent was promptly deleted from the discussion thread.)

WHO CARES if it is “common practice” for a Lt. Governor to contribute to the incoming administration’s inaugural ball? Is it a good idea? Why is this necessary? So we can have bipartisan dancing and dining?

It’s become common practice also to use government funds for all kinds of unconstitutional purposes – to bailout the too big too fail and the too debt in debt – but those practices aren’t a good idea either.

Aw, well. At least Mary Fallin follows a number of common practices. Not only did she do what was supposedly common practice in regards to donating to the Inaugural ball, she did what has become common practice in Washington, D.C. by voting for the bailout (aka TARP).  Both of those decisions have turned out real well for the people of Oklahoma. Oh, and the whole TARP thing worked out real well for all Americans…thanks, Mrs. Fallin.

Brogdon for Governor, anyone?

Anniversary of the Boston Tea Party Money Bomb

Money Bomb on the Anniversary of the Boston Tea Party!

Please donate to your favorite candidates. The links listed here will take you directly to their donation pages.

This list largely includes candidates that have received a preliminary vetting only. As we all begin to look for candidates worthy of our support, we should also be searching for candidates for those offices where none currently exist besides the entrenched establishment (incumbents).

Time waits for no man. NOW is the time for solid, committed Constitutional candidates to step forward in every state and file to run for elective office.

While there are of course a few exceptions, the very necessary application of DRIP = Do Not Re-Elect Incumbent Politicians, cannot be fulfilled if there are no candidates to oppose those incumbents. And that’s especially needed when those incumbents voted for bailouts!
