Why should you? I have a nephew in the US Navy right now, and two other relatives in the Air Force.

4. Loyal Americans live is Massachusetts and Mississippi, North Carolina and Nebraska, Hawaii and Alaska. Florida, Michigan, Texas, Minnesota, Maine, California, Indiana, New York, and Oregon.

And Oklahoma and Ohio.

And in the rest of the states I did not mention. There is no one region, party, or state, that "corners the market" on loyalty and patriotism. People display their patriotism in a variety of ways.

Peaceful protest, and being critical of our country at times is part of that. As is flag waving, buntings and parades.

"This Land is Your Land, This Land is My Land".... Woody Guthrie. Come to think of it, wasn't he from Oklahoma?

America is big enough for both of us, and all of us. And Christianity is not a "state religion". State mandated religions were one of the reasons why people came to America. To practice the religion of their choice - or no religion at all.
I'm a moderate progressive Christian African American Veteran ....whom had dinner before in the

I'm friends and friendly with Caucasian , Asian , Chicanos Latinos of Color , NDN'S and last but not
Least African American. All of these various groups of Peoples Would Gladly Take A Bullet for the good
Ole United States of American , without doing something SUPERFICIOUS LIKE WAVING OLD GLORY.


A Whole Lot Of People Waving Old Glory Would Not Give Theirs Life's For It....

You need to talk to bawac about how "liberal" Oklahoma is.

We're the Reddest of the Red, in terms of skin tone and socio-politically.

At least in Owasso (not the case of South Carolina) sounds like they don't want the students blocking everyone's view. They need to let them bring them in, run on the field at halftime with it, and then put them away.

Problem solved.
Oklahoma is so red even the dirt is red.

I heard a few people in line to vote today talking about how SQ 792 will destroy the Christian nature of Oklahoma by eliminating 3.2 beer and allowing beer and wine to be sold in grocery stores. While other states are legalizing marijuana, Oklahoma can't even get past prohibition.

They surely believe Jesus turned water into grape juice, not wine.

I wonder what they said in line in 1959 about the Christian nature of Oklahoma when Oklahoma voted to repeal prohibition of alcohol, so liquor stores could open in every county?

Strong beer or wine can not be sold at any 7-11. The only beer allowed to be sold in stores, like 7-11, can't have any more than 3.2% alcohol. Liquor stores do not sell 3.2% beer. They can sell anything stronger that that all the way up to Everclear, but nothing is allowed to be sold chilled.

Since prohibition was repealed in the 1930s, the Baptists had believed that Oklahomans could not handle having easy access to anything stronger than 3.2% beer. But since 1959, heavy bans on alcohol have slowly been falling. In 1984, Baptists, or at least big city Baptists, decided that Oklahoma was finally mature enough to handle liquor by the drink, but only if any counties wanted it. To this day, though, close to a 24 out of 77 counties still fear they can't handle liquor by the drink, so it remains banned. So if you go in one of their Mexican restaurants and order a Margarita, the waiter will look at you like you're an idiot.

StillwaterTownie explains it.

The big brewers (Miller-Coors, Anheuser-Busch) water down their products which usually range from 4.1% to 6% depending on the beer to 3.2% alcohol to sell in Oklahoma and Utah.

I am not disputing that. We will see on Tuesday whether or not that opinion is the majority.

It does not matter what Tuesday brings. An individual is entitled to his/her opinion and voicing that opinion.

If high alcohol beer 24/7 and upscale shopping is of such importance to you - ...
