David Blatt is a great guy, I'm a big fan of the data collecting that OKpolicy does.

I think there is a good argument to be made for not subsidizing anything and everything (the technical word is willy-nilly) and probably to have subsidies with set end dates (that are sooner rather than later to encourage innovation.)

Who knows, I'll have to do more research into it.

Oh! Also, if you're interested, I went to the Budget Summit in January that OKPolicy hosted which had Paul Pierson as the keynote speaker who co-wrote a very amazing book called American Amnesia about government intervention in the economy that I clearly need to re-read because I feel like it addresses all of this and I've forgotten it

Arizona and New Mexico were both open to white settlement many, many decades before Oklahoma, and only joined the Union later because they decided to do so as separate states (our Enabling Act was the same as theirs, at first). "The Last Frontier" shows up in Oklahoma: A Guide to the Sooner State, produced as part of the New Deal in the 30s and the first comprehensive history of the 46th state, and it shows up in our history other places too. Frontier lawlessness s an important part of the Commission's Report on the Tulsa Race Riot, as the commonplace reporting on Tulsa's lawlessness and need for citizens to take matters into their own hands—or as they called it then, frontier justice—are a key background to understanding why, at the seeming drop of a hat, large swathes of white Tulsa would be willing to commit such terrible atrocities. This is also the same time period as the Osage Indian Murders, when the FBI's forerunner literally recruited cowboys and Indians to solve crimes in the Osage Nation. So for a while there, at least into the 40s, Oklahoma's status as the last frontier was uncontested. You still see its resonance today: central Oklahoma is branded as "Frontier Country" because it's the last land of cowboys, with its huge stockyards and high concentration of period storefronts selling western boots. Seriously, go on google street view and look at the intersection of Exchange and Agnew in OKC and tell me that isn't "Southwestern".

Oklahoma really is on a geographic continuum with eastern New Mexico, and we even share a mesa with them (though it does have a different name there). And the flora and fauna are also similar, with plenty of crossover at least as far as I35. The weather also isn't different: we may call those deep, often dry creek beds washes and they may say arroyo, but they're the same phenomenon, and they're common in the Cimarron watershed really far east into Oklahoma.

Historians also think we're part of the Southwest. James Green, a historian with a doctorate from Yale, named his book on socialism in Oklahoma and the states to our south and west Grass-Roots Socialism: Radical Movements in the Southwest, 1895--1943. Oklahoma University has the Western History Collection, one of the best libraries for primary sources on the "Wild West" in the world, and any book about cowboys and their ilk worth its salt will have a bibliography chock full of monographs from the University's Press.

Consider our cultural institutions too. Gilcrease Museum is the largest collection—in the world—of Western art (western here meaning The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, not 300), and the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum is in Oklahoma City. What do both of those museums have a bunch of? Stuff you'd expect to find in a Western, Fredric Remington sculptures, and Albert Bierstadt paintings. That's all really "southwestern", when your image of the Southwest is the OK Corral or Clint Eastwood squinting.

I'm not trying to say we aren't also Southern, or Midwestern, or a plains (or even southern plains!) state. We're all of them, in one big beautiful mix, and don't let anybody say we ain't.

That's the original post online, but I'm not sure where it ultimately comes from.

A long time ago I had an "Okie Dialect Dictionary" that had a bunch of these and more.

I thought this was "purdy" funny myself!


I think this is the "dictionary" I'm thinkin' of.

The Good Ol' Boy (& Gal) Okie Dictionary by Daniel Hudgins

When you have someone whose core problematic set of cognitions revolve around how they are amazing and better than most people, it's hard to convince that person they need therapy to improve themselves ;)

In terms of most likely therapy, this is a good template -

There's tons of these stories, like when our great "conservative" Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn was negotiating serial philanderer Senator Ensign's monetary exit from a cheating scandal with his staff (his "best friend's" wife).

Tom Coburn is about as "Christian" as Osama Bin Laden. But the illiterate electorate of Oklahoma will buy it if you're selling it. Just like Epic Schools' LIES (which KWTV9 and other Oklahoma based TV media are keeping hush hush right now, because all their friends and political allies are neck deep in it) and on and on and on. Then dumb Okies sit around wondering why politicians lie to them all the time. Gee, it's a "real mystery", isn't it...... ???

> Authoritarian vs Libertarian in my eyes is the real struggle.

I highly recommend this book -

Brilliantly written series of essays that speak to that point. I, too, struggled with Libertarianism for a while, and Dr. Kendall's work was instrumental in helping me sort that out.

He's got a new book that outlines the specific biblical reasons why Global Warming is a hoax from the liberal media.

> I did not learn about it until college (coincidentally at OU as well).

Haha I wonder how many people learned about it through Riot and Remembrance in their post-Civil War history class at OU for the first time...

Read the book Funny Money by Mark Singer. It is about the collapse of Penn Square Bank and the energy bust of the early '80's. Many of his points are eerily on for today's current OKC situation.

Just gonna leave this here.

TLDR-- The 2nd Amendment re: existing [in part] because SLAVERY.


It was an addition to The Constitution by the government of Virginia, because the slaves outnumbered the plantation owners and Virginians were worried about slave rebellions.

“The Georgia statutes required patrols, under the direction of commissioned militia officers, to examine every plantation each month and authorized them to search ‘all Negro Houses for offensive Weapons and Ammunition’ and to apprehend and give twenty lashes to any slave found outside plantation grounds.”
In Georgia, for example, a generation before the American Revolution, laws were passed in 1755 and 1757 that required all plantation owners or their male white employees to be members of the Georgia Militia, and for those armed militia members to make monthly inspections of the quarters of all slaves in the state. The law defined which counties had which armed militias and even required armed militia members to keep a keen eye out for slaves who may be planning uprisings.

sources: and Slave Patrols by Sally Haden and

pop culture example---Django Unchained: “Why don’t they just rise up and kill the whites? (rhetorical mention from article linked above-- well, those well-regulated 'slave patrol' militias)

from this article linked, it has embedded sources at the link

> Madison, who had (at Jefferson’s insistence) already begun to prepare proposed amendments to the US Constitution, changed his first draft of one that addressed the militia issue to make sure it was unambiguous that the southern states could maintain their slave patrol militias.
> His first draft for what became the Second Amendment had said: “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed; a well armed, and well regulated militia being the best security of a free country: but no person religiously scrupulous of bearing arms, shall be compelled to render military service in person.”
> But Henry, Mason and others wanted southern states to preserve their slave-patrol militias independent of the federal government. So Madison changed the word “country” to the word “state,” and redrafted the Second Amendment into today’s form:
> “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
> Little did Madison realize that one day in the future weapons-manufacturing corporations, newly defined as “persons” by a Supreme Court some have called dysfunctional, would use his slave patrol militia amendment to protect their “right” to manufacture and sell assault weapons used to murder schoolchildren.

**Note: Personally I find this interesting and while not arguing this point-- State (capitol "S") refers to the governmental body as a whole by modern definitions (as I understand it) and state (lowercase 's') refers to states themselves as locations in the country, but I cannot discern editorial accuracy from an online article and am looking into my primary sources more. I do think the whole piece is worth a read but did not want to paste the entire thing here just all the relevant links and some points.

Also BIG CAVEAT---> I am always a little skeptical using TruthOut as a source that's why the primary sources are linked above, and here are their mediabias links for transparency.

Anti-vaxxers enrage me. That shit is dangerous, ignorant nonsense.

>Liza Greve, president of Oklahomans for Vaccine and Health Choice, which advocates for parental choice, said Oklahomans should take the opt-out statistics with a grain of salt.

Do you know what i take with a grain of salt, Liza? You, because your facebook page is a whole box of cat scratch crazy:

  1. You shouldn't send your kids to school on flu shot day because children are being forced to get it.
  2. That autism is caused by vaccines (see all her posts touting the book "how to end the autism epidemic"
  3. That the DOJ cancelled expert testimony to conceal "critical material evidence of how vaccines can cause autism in some children"
  4. Vaccines cause cancer.

    This is all within the 5 posts on her page.
