Default Tulsa Veterans

Idea for aiding these young warriors returning from OIF, OEF. Tulsa World isn't interested. Sullivan, Inhofe, Coburn not interested. Henry says not his job to introduce legislation (in other words, not interested). OK Dist 25 Sen Mazzei doesn't respond. OK Dist 67 Rep Peterson took the prize. She argued back that Oklahoma DOES care about veterans. Why, she said "we name roads and bridges after veterans." Fortunately, I was left speechless, or else I might be behind bars.

Anyway, since the only ones who REALLY give a **** **** about veterans are veterans and their families, who wants to talk about some ideas that other States have implemented, that WILL make a difference for our returning warriors?

And how the heck do you then get the attention of a government that doesn't care unless it directly impacts a politician's personal pocketbook?

Thanks to Mayor Taylor for hiring a veteran, Matt Stiner, to work on ways to improve life for veterans. Too bad the link to Stiner's interview on MTV News is broken.

Default Once again,

the Tulsa World focusses on the wrong event. In their defense, so did the national media.

For those who may have forgotten, August 15th is not only remembered for the infamous drugged-out slobs who demonstrated America's love for the weird at Woodstock, the major news item of that date this year. August 15th is also the date that victory was won in the Pacific, the date that Japan surrendered in 1945. Marines, sailors, and soldiers overcame an entrenched, well-disciplined, and professional Japanese military in the Pacific, sacrificing many of our finest to ensure our liberty. Evidently the media, including our own Tulsa World, deemed the Woodstock event more newsworthy. At least the World is consistent.

The Republic of Korea celebrates August 15th as Gwangbokjeol - Liberation Day. They had suffered most of the early 20th Century under a brutal Japanese occupation. Soon thereafter, we were once again joined with the ROK during the Korean War, and many years later, the ROK sent over 300,000 of its finest to fight communism alongside us in southeast Asia.

That the events that some of us regard as genuinely historical in nature should be overshadowed by a mob of dope-smokers is saddening.
