Chicken-Fried News: Economy, schmeconomy!


  • Bigstock

Looking over a list of the more than 3,400 bills in front of the 2016 Oklahoma Legislature is enough to make some of us rethink this whole democracy thing.

If you thought government was canceled until they iron out the almost $1 billion Oklahoma doesn’t have, guess again. And it’s not like they’re focusing solely on the economy (like that would matter anyway). Our lawmakers are taking on the tough issues like House Joint Resolution 1040 from Rep. Jason Murphey, asking for Oklahomans to vote on changes to the state Constitution to term-limit the Oklahoma Supreme Court.

There’s also House Resolution 1029 from Rep. Mike Shelton, which would urge schools and state agencies to stop flying the flag of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam and start flying the Heritage and Freedom Flag.

But wait; there’s more! If you act now, you can read Rep. David Brumbaugh’s scathing House Resolution 1032. It expresses disapproval of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, which said same-sex couples have a fundamental right to marry.
