    Mind you, I've been wanting to start this thread for a while, just to have a laugh or two at the abject failure the state of Oklahoma Government has been since the OK Dems slowly lost power over a decade due to both the political shift to the right in the US and the OK Dems corruption finally catching up to them...

    I had planned to start with the failures of our legislature & governor as we prepare to start selling off state parks and multiple school districts & rural hospitals start to close, but this, well, this warms might heart...

    Meet Ralph Shortey...

    Ralph, if you remember, is one of our state senators, who did some internet research and then introduced an anti-abortion bill because he believed that aborted fetuses, or is that fetuii, whatever, were being used in making artificial sweeteners, and by God, we can't have that because us Okies drink sweet tea by the barrel.

    There's an old adage about the swiftest end to a political career being caught with a live boy or a dead girl, but it's the 21st century, and I figured that that "live boy" thing might have gone out the window in our new progressive age...

    That is, unless the boy is below the age of consent...


    Oh Ralph...

    Oklahoma state senator under investigation by Moore police

    Ralph Shortey likes to hang out in motel rooms with teenage boys… | The Lost Ogle


    According to a report from NewsOK.com, mouth-breathing State Senator Ralph Shortey – a TLO regular thanks to his mind-numbingly stupid political stances – was busted by Moore police hanging out in a motel room with a teenage boy.

    That’s interesting. I’m sure he was just there to show the boy his gun collection or something harmless like that…

    This is a breaking news story. We’ll have more details tomorrow. In the meantime, follow the advice from Phil Cross before tossing out accusations…




    Goodbye, Ralph | It was fun to laugh at you, but now your days of embarassing Oklahoma are nearinmg an end. Maybe you can go back to the Rez in South Dakota and one of the Dog Soldiers can dump your body in a ravine...

    That is unless my homie Greg Mashburn charges you, then you'll be spending a few decades at Big Mac, because he hates pedos

    Was our country always this stupid? I guess. But it sure isn't getting smarter. Because your boy Ralph is at least 5 bullets short of a full chamber, and probably that figure is 6.

    At one time, Kansas was fairly progressive. Appeal to Reason was the national newspaper of the Socialist Party and was published in Kansas. Heck, there is even a town in Kansas named Liberal.

    I'm surprised Brownstain and Kobach haven't forced them to change the name to Right-Wing-Nutjob, Kansas.

    Speaking of Kobach, he is rumored to be considering a run for Governor. Brownstain is out regardless of whether he goes to Rome or not as he is term-limited.

    The types of people who think they ought to spend 4-6 hours of their day cold-calling rich people for money, telling the entire population what to do, and spending vast sums of public dollars on pet projects, tend to draw a few sociopaths. We need to adapt our institutions to keep scumbags like this guy out of office.

    I think he makes about 32K on this. Most politicians in OK have "real jobs" to one degree or another. Also, he's still getting paid, and he's been in office long enough to draw a pension, which ironically, won't be taken away if he his convicted.

    Still, I think he's filed for bankruptcy protection like 3 times
    We don't have basements down here. Expansive soils.

    What's wrong with it? I'm not commenting on his disgusting predilection, but seriously, why do you think there is something wrong with a house like that?

    Well, he should be using an edger for starters on the driveway and a pre-emergent to take care of the weeds. What you don't see in the pic that you will in other's is a car up on blocks to the left of the minivan.

    Not to mention, he lives on the Southside of OKC, which we all know is the worst part of OKC, where it's gone all Little Nuevo Laredo, except for the Northeast Side, which is the "black" part of town, and even then, their homes, by and large, look better than that, because OKC Code Enforcement spends most of their time..

    I take it you don't approve of immigrants not assimilating and bringing all their shitty 3rd world lifestyles with them, LOL

    Actually, it's not that, it's the "white flight" that started in the late 60's to Norman / Edmond / NWOKC / Putnam City school districts by the more affluent residents of OKC, and to Moore, Midwest City & Del City for the less affluent.

    Many of these homes were bought up by poorer white residents, which is nice, because they got decent homes at bargain rates, but a lot more were bought up by landlords to turn into rentals, which also went to lower income whites. As those people aged out and sold, even more became rentals and landlords, as landlords do, only put the barest amount of maintenance into homes and the neighborhoods decayed even faster, precipitated even more 2-3 oil busts, poor urban planning and cheap exurban land for subdivisions.

    As immigration from Latin America increased, those immigrants naturally went to the cheapest housing available and the stigma of it having "gone brown" became the general belief. In reality, as those 2-3 generation residents gain permanent status or citizenship, they have done a great deal to buy up these houses and renovate them and create several islands of neighborhood resurgence that are slowly growing. Of course, the elderly white folks that remain all feel "threatened" because signs are in english & spanish now and silly things like that, but with all the new businesses started and owned by the new locals, there is a lot more employment and a lot more civic demand for the city to keep up the infrastructure.

    Like any other 3rd & 4th generation cohorts of descendants of immigrants, they are all generally well assimilated and the crime has followed the "white flight" into those districts where the least affluent white people migrated to, because they all hate taxes and vote against sales taxes & bond issues and their areas fall apart.

    Sometimes, God works through rape and incest. Who are we to judge Gods allowances?



    Lets just say such a God as this is inherently rejectable.
