Looks Like Oklahoma is the place to move (my title)

An update from Oklahoma :

Oklahoma law passed, 37 to 9, had a few liberals in the mix, an amendment to place the Ten Commandments on the front entrance to the state capitol. The feds in D.C., along with the ACLU, said it would be a mistake. Hey this is a conservative state, based on Christian values...! HB 1330

Guess what.......... Oklahoma did it anyway.

Oklahoma recently passed a law in the state to incarcerate all illegal immigrants, and ship them back to where they came from unless they want to get a green card and become an American citizen. They all scattered. HB 1804. Hope we didn't send any of them to your state. This was against the advice of the Federal Government, and the ACLU, they said it would be a mistake.

Guess what.......... Oklahoma did it anyway.

Recently we passed a law to include DNA samples from any and all illegal's to the Oklahoma database, for criminal investigative purposes. Pelosi said it was unconstitutional. SB 1102

Guess what........ Oklahoma did it anyway.

Several weeks ago, we passed a law, declaring Oklahoma as a Sovereign state, not under the Federal Government directives. Joining Texas, Montana and Utah as the only states to do so. More states are likely to follow: Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, the Carolina's, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia, Mississippi, Florida. Save your confederate money, it appears the South is about to rise up once again. HJR 1003

The federal Government has made bold steps to take away our guns. Oklahoma, a week ago, passed a law confirming people in this state have the right to bear arms and transport them in their vehicles. I'm sure that was a set back for the criminals (and Obamaites). Liberals didn't like it -- But ...

Guess what........... Oklahoma did it anyway.

Just this month, my state has voted and passed a law that ALL driver's license exams will be printed in English, and only English, and no other language. We have been called racist for doing this, but the fact is that ALL of our road signs are in English only. If you want to drive in Oklahoma, you must read and write English. Really simple.

By the way, Obama does not like any of this. Guess what....who cares... Oklahoma is doing it anyway.

They'll be happy to have you, but make sure you bring your own cigarettes.

And Senator James Inhofe — the best U.S. Senator by a long margin. The man is tenacious, has guts and really fights for what is right.

Not a SINGLE county voted for Obama in 2008 -

http://elections.nytimes.com/2008/results/president/map.html

THAT alone is reason enough for Conservatives to migrate to OK.

Only 34% of Oklahomans voted for ZERO and that number would be less now.

Love living here in Oklahoma — moved to Norman in Jan 97 and love it. Best place I have ever lived. Couldn’t get me to move elsewhere ever.

Reminds me of a joke my Texas relatives always say to their OK relatives. How come Texas doesn’t fall into the ocean? Because Oklahoma sucks!

I tell everyone that joke. I moved away 20 years ago and still think it is funny(my mom doesn’t), so does anyone I tell it to.

Good for you.

I live in GA.

Can't understand how any self-respecting Conservative can stand to live in New York or California, to name only two of the (too) many Police/Nanny-States.

So different from the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Are we discussing a parallel universe? The two gentleman in question: one with serious tummy flab hanging and the semi naked one with tatoos crawling up his arms, need a quick visit from the Queer Eye For the Straight Guy Crew for a Fabulous Fashion Makeover.

“Can’t understand how any self-respecting Conservative can stand to live in New York”

Because some of us are stuck here for various reasons..Family, or employment obligations, or we own houses that we can’t sell, or any number of other reasons.

But essentially, we are living behind enemy lines.

stormer, you are looking in your mirror!

Forbes Magazine says Oklahoma City is the most recession proof city in the country. The unemploment rate in Oklahoma is six percent. Housing prices are rising in Oklahoma City.

Nah, they’ll probably spot you a cigarette or two.
Paid for by their oil royalties.

Funny thing is, that photo could come from a number of other locales
I’ve passed through in my travels after leaving my native Oklahoma in 1995!!!

Oklahoma is OK! Born there but moved to Texas in 1986. How about we both form the new nation Texoma!

Don’t forget Tom Coburn who’s out in front against this health care monstrosity. As for me I’m not Okie born, but I am Okie bred. Have lived in Texas, NM, PA, and South Africa, pre-apartheid, and always seem to find my way back here. Conservatives welcome.
