1:15 pm - ignorant hatred @ doubleshot coffee, 18th & boston

Below message is proudly cross-posted to every available place relative to tulsa and oklahoma:

ignorant bullshit @ doubleshot coffee, 18th & boston

Passing the message along to send a big "Fuck you" to hatefull ignorance in Tulsa. Dunno about you, but I won't patronize or stand up for this kind of crap in my city!

-- sign on a table at doubleshot coffee 18th & boston--

tulsa, you may want to think twice about supporting bullshit like this! this was posted by a friend of mine who works at a salon next door.

for four months i have been a huge supporter and patron of the place. on tuesday i went into the doubleshot cafe at 18th and boston at the request of one of my clients to "look at the spongebob gay sign on the table and see what you think."so i go in ( to buy my 1 of the usual cups i buy daily since the salon we have is next door) and to my dismay i saw this attatched sign taped to a table.(look on my pictures) i think it is dispicable and thought "well, i just don't get the joke" so when i went over to ask "BRIAN" the guy who's mom owns the coffee shop/owner of the land rover with "w the president sticker" intact parked outside.

i came in all friendly-(we have met and exchanged friendly talk many times before) like and asked "dude, whats the deal, thats offensive.(in a very quiet tone)" ( thats like starbucks having a sign that says "don't worry, no jews to taint your coffee experience here at starbucks!" upon my asking he gets very aggro and al red faced and starts yelling about how i am "slime" and to "get the fuck out." i left and left him my frequent drinker cards and said if he supports this kind of teeehee funny funny hateful shit, i will no longer come in, i took my cards gently off the bulletin board too.

"get out creep" was all he said...until about 5 min. later when he busts into the salon (clients and all) (not to mention my bf's 4yr old son and 6yr old daughter within ear reach)and LITERALLY got AN INCH from my face face saying "you know what you are?? you're a fucking little dirty bitch and you can't take a joke!!!fuck you! don't start shit and make waves when you're new in the neighborhood..!" i merely told him in a speaking tone to please leave the store and that the sign wasn't a funny joke if it actually is one.
"he again said fuck you bitch, YOU'RE INSECURE IN YOUR GAYNESS!!" and left....

wow.real christian!!!!all i was wanting as a patron and nearby business owner is his observation of the fact that this is offensive. but all i got was chip on the shoulder, aggro jock-o rage.the situation elevated when our owner (female) came to talk to him and he ended up shoving her. do not support this shit!!please look at the picture and tell me what you or your gay friends would think.

SO TO ALL YOU TULSA PEOPLE SICK OF SPENDING MONEY THAT GOES TO "W" VOTING AND ADMITTEDLY SUPPORTING, INTIMIDATING, AGGRO BIDNASSES, GO TAKE A DOUBLE SHOT OF AGGRO JOCK HOMOPHOBIA AT THE DOUBLE SHOT!! i really love to support grassroots businesses, but shades of brown--no hate, no hassle!!!don't let right wing christian bullshit leak into your latte.....

5:48 am - I-44 Billboard: Update

As I drove by the "I Vote Democratic" Billboard on I-44 Yesterday, I noticed a small sign on it. Instead of saying "Lamar" or "Tri-State" it said Krumme. I wonder if he owns the "Resistence Isn't Furile: Vote Democratic" sign on I-40 wesr of shawnee.

The following was sent to be in an email from Keith Smith:

Please call the following members Of the Oklahoma County Budget Board to urge them to vote to approve the non discrimination policy that the County Commissioners previously passed unanimously which barred discrimination based on sexual orientation.

The Budget Board is scheduled to meet on Thursday, January 20, 2005 at 10:00 AM in the Oklahoma County Court House Annex, 320 Robert S. Kerr, in room 103. The proponents of discrimination and hatred are trying to pass an amended version that doesn't protect everyone from discrimination. Tell them to vote no on the new version.

Tell each one of these elected officials discrimination if any kind is wrong and voting for discrimination is the wrong message to send to potential businesses who might be considering coming to Oklahoma to create jobs. Economic Development is more important to our citizens. Please don't embarrass Oklahoma County nationally by voting for discrimination.

Leonard Sullivan Assessor 713-1200
Jim Roth Commissioner 713-1501

Walking the walk on family values
By William V. D'Antonio | October 31, 2004

The Boston Globe

PRESIDENT Bush and Vice President Cheney make reference to "Massachusetts liberals" as if they were referring to people with some kind of disease. I decided it was time to do some research on these people, and here is what I found.

The state with the lowest divorce rate in the nation is Massachusetts. At latest count it had a divorce rate of 2.4 per 1,000 population, while the rate for Texas was 4.1.

But don't take the US government's word for it. Take a look at the findings from the George Barna Research Group. George Barna, a born-again Christian whose company is in Ventura, Calif., found that Massachusetts does indeed have the lowest divorce rate among all 50 states. More disturbing was the finding that born-again Christians have among the highest divorce rates.

The Associated Press, using data supplied by the US Census Bureau, found that the highest divorce rates are to be found in the Bible Belt. The AP report stated that "the divorce rates in these conservative states are roughly 50 percent above the national average of 4.2 per thousand people." The 10 Southern states with some of the highest divorce rates were Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Texas. By comparison nine states in the Northeast were among those with the lowest divorce rates: Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

How to explain these differences? The following factors provide a partial answer:

More couples in the South enter their first marriage at a younger age.

Average household incomes are lower in the South.

Southern states have a lower percentage of Roman Catholics, "a denomination that does not recognize divorce." Barna's study showed that 21 percent of Catholics had been divorced, compared with 29 percent of Baptists.

Education. Massachusetts has about the highest rate of education in the country, with 85 percent completing high school. For Texas the rate is 76 percent. One third of Massachusetts residents have completed college, compared with 23 percent of Texans, and the other Northeast states are right behind Massachusetts.

The liberals from Massachusetts have long prided themselves on their emphasis on education, and it has paid off: People who stay in school longer get married at a later age, when they are more mature, are more likely to secure a better job, and job income increases with each level of formal education. As a result, Massachusetts also leads in per capita and family income while births by teenagers, as a percent of total births, was 7.4 for Massachusetts and 16.1 for Texas.

The Northeast corridor, with Massachusetts as the hub, does have one of the highest levels of Catholics per state total. And it is also the case that these are among the states most strongly supportive of the Catholic Church's teaching on social justice issues such as minimum and living wages and universal healthcare.

For all the Bible Belt talk about family values, it is the people from Kerry's home state, along with their neighbors in the Northeast corridor, who live these values. Indeed, it is the "blue" states, led led by Massachusetts and Connecticut, that have been willing to invest more money over time to foster the reality of what it means to leave no children behind. And they have been among the nation's leaders in promoting a living wage as their goal in public employment. The money they have invested in their future is known more popularly as taxes; these so-called liberal people see that money is their investment to help insure a compassionate, humane society. Family values are much more likely to be found in the states mistakenly called out-of-the-mainstream liberal. By their behavior you can know them as the true conservatives. They are showing how to conserve family life through the way they live their family values. William V. D'Antonio is professor emeritus at University of Connecticut and a visiting research professor at Catholic University in Washington, D.C.

8:42 am - Liberal/Progessive Okies

So here's a plan.

Let's start a group. A group of 10, a dozen, however many people we can get together, and get started. Call it "Oklahomans for a Modern Society", and work in whatever small ways we can to drag Oklahoma, kicking and screaming, into the 21st century. Not on big things like gay rights at first, y'know, but start with small things like tattooing and big-but-not controversial things like public transportation. Write letters to the editor of the Daily Oklahoman, the Gazette, the governor, state representatives. Go to city council meetings and lobby for it. Make it an economic discussion. You know, how the government here is wringing its hands about "brain drain" and how to attract young, talented people to the state -- instead of its current policy of sending them scurrying to more liberal states 10 minutes after they graduate from college. Get those tax dollars here instead of letting them go untaxed and underground or to Texas.

We can get together, find our talents, brainstorm ways to affect change or even make our voices heard.

What do you think? Who's with me?

10:10 am - D1 house race

Does anyone think we can win this race, I haven't been back to Tulsa in a while, how great would it be if we snagged this seat. This is an email from Philippe Beaudette. Also, I just saw this which is kinda interesting: http://www.mydd.com/files/admin/choices.gif

I need your help. Actually, Doug Dodd needs your help. You may have seen in various national publications that Doug is in the fight of his life for the First District Congressional Seat in Tulsa. THIS IS A VERY WINNABLE RACE - IT'S A STATISTICAL DEAD-HEAT. Doug is getting great word of mouth, both locally and nationally - he was in "Roll Call" yesterday, and on DailyKos today. (Kos calls Doug's newest ad "the best piece of political literature of any race this cycle.")

There's one major problem: Doug can't get the attention of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. The DCCC sent a bit of money a while back, but Doug needs large amounts of cold, hard, cash today or tomorrow to stay up on television. The DCCC could do that!

Will you email the DCCC through their online form (click here for the form, and select "fundraising" as the topic) and encourage them to help Doug? Tell them that you believe the race is winnable, remind them that we have one of the cheapest media markets in the country, and remind them that Republican John Sullivan is melting down in the media (negative articles in the Tulsa World and on Roll Call, among others).

Once you've done that, would you let me know by emailing me so that I can keep a count of how many people are doing it?

Please take just a moment to do this today, and check out Doug's website at http://www.dougdodd4congress.com for more information about Doug or his positions.

Doug needs your help. More importantly, the people of Oklahoma's First Congressional District need Doug.

I know you'll do what you can, and for that I thank you.

2:35 am - How come Oklahoma tries to amend its constitution so much?

Come join us for an anti-711 rally in which the sheriff prohibits us from mentioning 711. It's at city plaza in front of Tulsa city hall. 11-2 today! This should be interesting...

We want equal rights! Remember that when you vote Tuesday...on...something. It's entirely relevant to Oklahomans this election year because...we have friends in Missouri who just passed a Defense of Bigotry Act! Who knows? Someday this divisive issue might show up on our ballots! Someday...soon....Yeah right! Get ready for some confrontations with the Po-Po's kids!
