    all things stitt

    I like her too. I wasn’t a fan of her response. She could have really spun it to generate support for public Ed...something like: While we believe this is merely political theater attempting to generate support to further the Governor’s agenda to dismantle public education, we also have nothing...

    all things stitt

    Now this is something that Stitt is doing that I can get behind. I believe there should be routine investigative audits of all major state spenders. I am curious if this will get public education overhauled or gutted. Knowing how Stitt feels about public ed, I can assume the spin he will put on...

    City of Stillwater thread

    My daughter is going to the OSU softball camp this weekend so we are looking for something to do Saturday afternoon/evening. The camp is over at 2:30 on Saturday, so we will have a good chunk of time to kill. Planned on walking her around campus...but looking for something a little more...

    Official Game Thread: Tulsa vs. Oklahoma State

    Came to post this as well...that is truly pathetic. Who knows though...maybe the coaches are playing the long game. Give all of our "big time" opponents lots of film of us running every second and long and then when they least expect it...BAM! Throw a bomb downfield....oh wait, it was intercepted.

    all things stitt

    I can, with 100% certainty, that our thoughts expressed in these quotes is very much the minority. The majority sides with Stitt on tribal issues (both the gaming compacts and McGirt). The majority sides with Stitt on the blatant government overreach of making local mask mandates illegal...

    all things stitt

    But that's the thing...Stitt isn't leading the charge to freedom. The only freedoms he promotes are the ones on his agenda. Example: Mask mandates in schools. While, I don't think they really do anything because kids don't wear masks properly all day long...it is a blatant government overreach...

    Afghanistan merged

    Bingo. He's playing the hero card.

    Afghanistan merged

    No way. Either way (release or MIA), his support will go through the roof. He will be the hero that went to clean up Joe Biden's mess. Became a POW. Leading 3 other prisoners to Christ, before being released after we mail them the keys to those tanks we left. He will, unfortunately, not lose...

    Cancel Culture!!!

    Pretty much everyone I know that is over 40 and thinks of themselves as republican has been following this "symposium" religiously. I realize that this small sample size doesn't necessarily translate nationwide. But I do think it is at least representative of Oklahoma.

    Covid-19

    So I work for the Cherokee Nation, and this was circulated to us yesterday: From Aug. 1 to Aug. 7, 2020, Cherokee Nation Health Services recorded 136 new COVID-19 cases. From Aug. 1 to Aug. 7, 2021, Cherokee Nation Health Services recorded 786 new COVID-19 cases.

    Covid-19

    The actual text of the bill bars local education boards from implementing a mask mandate. I see the loophole as what @OSUPsych and @cableok are suggesting. As long as the mayor, principal, superintendent, etc calls for the mask mandate, they should be able to implement it.

    Covid-19

    Here is the actual text of the law: So, it reads like the city/county leadership can issue a mask mandate, which would cover the schools. But that individual districts can't issue a mask mandate themselves.

    Spirit Airlines

    Our daughter flew Spirit once. The person at the ticket counter, also loaded the luggage cart, wheeled it out to the tarmac and loaded the luggage onto the plane. They had one person doing the job of about 6 people. With the downturn in employment, it is not surprising.

    Big 12 Realignment thread, 2021 version

    That's my thought. Wrestling is an afterthought there. I think within 3 years they drop the program if they don't stay in the Big 12 for wrestling.
