Special Session for Fixing the Budget Hole, but Also for Passing More Special Interest Tax Exemptions!
Yeah, we get it, the 2017 auto sales tax was written by idiots that forgot the effect it would have on fleet sales of trucks and rental cars. But then again car sales can also happen across state lines once the tax differences are high enough that people vote with their pocket books and purchase vehicles in other states and tag them in other states to evade the enormous tax hike passed this spring. And who can afford the tax easier? Jane and Joe Sixpack or the large oil and gas companies, Walmart, and other corporate donors?
House and Senate Leadership and Mary FallinLose the Massive Tax Increase Vote
Oklahomans dodged a bullet this week after the House of Representatives vote on nearly a half billion dollars in increased taxes failed by a handful of votes. Leadership left the vote open for over an hour while they threatened and pressured the hold outs in the Republican caucus, using office privileges, office budgets, committee positions, the usual punishments dealt to conservative Republicans for following the Party platform.

Senator Yen's Son Arrested for Drunken Driving
Senator Yen Urged to Add Interlock Ignition Devices on Tanning Beds
to Prevent Drunken Tanning
Is a Senate bill from 2011 going to be followed with Senator Erwin Yen's son Jacob Henry Yen following the younger Yen's arrest in Norman for drunk driving?
SB 529 (2011) requires that first time DUI offenders have interlocking ignition devices installed on their cars, requiring the driver to blow into the device and pass a booze test before the car will start. Jacob Henry Yen will also have the words "Interlock Required" placed on his drivers license until the probation period is over and drivers caught driving vehicles without the required ignition interlock will result in arrest. Yen will have to pay for the device and interlock, which was reflected on the court records obtained by the Sooner Tea Party.
RINOs on the Run?
Vicious Battle at State Committee Meeting Won by Conservatives
Pam Pollard and Fount Holland lost a major battle this afternoon at the state committee meeting held and the Windsor Hills Baptist Church. Despite Pam Pollard's desperate attempts to halt the proceedings using threats of a quorum call, fake time deadlines, and other procedural moves the grass roots Republican County Chairmen passed a resolution praising the two dozen or so Republican House members that blocked the outright passage of the massive nearly half billion dollar tax increase. Different sources present at the event vary in the exact count but all accounts agree that nearly 65% of the County GOP officials voted in favor of the resolution while around 29 RINO party officials bitterly opposed the resolution.
This is Going to be the Result of Passing New Taxes or Increasing Taxes
I live over in the old Kyle Loveless Senate seat and in the last two days have gotten three mailers from Rosino, the Republican candidate for the Senate seat. A picture of the two mailers is above. The other mailer was puffing the candidate instead of accusing voters of being lazy or pre occupied.
On the other side of the mailer Rosino's mailer attempts to explain why Republicans are getting defeated in the special elections, he claims a mix of out of state money and workers and admitting that the Republican voters are staying home and not voting.
I'm not going to miss voting on Tuesday, I'm voting early, for the Democrat and I am a Republican and have been for many years. OCPAC recommended the same, vote for the liberal Democrat who would do less damage.
