Teachers Refuse to Give Standardized Tests to First Graders

Why would teachers refuse to assess their students? They explain in an open letter. Thanks to Common Core, it seems, an increasing number of teachers are refusing to administer required tests to students—especially young students. To some extent the media coverage of this annoys me since employees are treated like heroes for refusing to obey their employer, while an elected official refusing to violate her conscience and publicly affirm same-sex “marriage” is treated much differently Read more […]

The ACLU Finally Finds a Chief Executive Who Should Obey the Law

Perhaps the ACLU might try to show us some commitment to principle? Or is that not possible? The ACLU is mad at the Oklahoma governor. According to Tulsa World, “Gov. Mary Fallin, monument unmoved by Supreme Court’s Ten Commandments ruling.” Gov. Mary Fallin on Tuesday said the Ten Commandments monument will stay at the Capitol despite a court ruling that said it violated the state Constitution and must be removed. Fallin said Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt has asked the Oklahoma Read more […]

Did a Tragedy Happen Because of a Pretend Cop?

Many (including Conservatives) are saying a deputy accidentally killed a suspect because he was a pretend cop, but that is a distraction. It happened on April 2, but the video was just released: According to the New York Daily News, The botched encounter was captured on a disturbing video released by police on Friday — nine days after the fatal Tulsa shooting. “He shot me! He shot me, man. Oh, my god. I’m losing my breath,” Eric Harris says as he struggles on the ground following Read more […]

Better to End Civil Marriage than Pervert It?

An Oklahoma legislator isn’t exactly proposing to end civil marriage, but he wants the state to stop issuing marriage licenses. The problem with homosexual marriage isn’t simply the question of the morality of homosexual couples, but that people who know homosexual marriage is an oxymoron—like a square triangle or dry water—are required to lie and affirm that such a self-contradiction exists. This means that county clerks who sign marriage licenses are being told to lie as a condition Read more […]

New Michelle Obama Lunch Program: Going Hungry

Photograph of lunch program reveals not much food. Going hungry is not healthy and it does not help do anything about childhood obesity. If anything, it will increase the amount of junk food that children will buy at gas stations and fast food restaurants. This point was made in an interview after outrage over school lunches erupted in Chickasha, Oklahoma. It was reported by Fox 25 Oklahoma City. “These regulations were put into effect two years ago and were still struggling with them.” There Read more […]

Cops Stop Islamist Beheading in Oklahoma?

Islamist Beheading is a Theological Problem. Why do Muslims kill Christians, and cut off people’s heads? “This is just what we do.” –Oklahoma Muslim to co-worker he was reportedly promising to behead, and put the picture on Facebook. Wow… who wants to be on the PR team for CAIR right now? “Indeed, the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God. And they will do these things because they have not known the Father, nor me. But I have said these Read more […]

11-Year-Old Girl with a Gun: 1; Knife-Wielding Attacker: 0

A young girl with a gun saved her mother’s life from an attacker. The eleven-year-old had only recently been taught to shoot.

HHS Immigration Press Blackout: Media, Congress, Do Your Jobs & Grow Some Backbone!

C’mon, media brethren… get into the battle here. Take in hidden cameras and other recording devices. The entire reason for the First Amendment is because the press is supposed to be the government’s worst enemy when officials are trying to hide or spin the truth. Do your duty to the country. From National Review’s blog, The Corner: “HHS Will ‘Muzzle the Media’ During Tour of Immigrant Child Housing.” Health and Human Services officials will allow reporters to visit a military facility Read more […]

Oklahoma State Government Knows That Minimum Wage Law Is a Job Killer

I’m not sure if I agree with the tactic or not, but I definitely agree with the principle. Oklahoma’s governor and legislature don’t want to see jobs destroyed by municipal governments. From the Heritage Foundation’s blog: Republican Governor Mary Fallin signed a bill into law Monday banning minimum wage and employee benefit increases in Oklahoma cities. The bill declares “state preemption authority,” stipulating that “no municipality or other political subdivision of this Read more […]

Deaf Man Beaten By Police For Not Showing Hands When Verbally Ordered To Do So

I don’t think this incident is nearly as serious as some others that have been reported here at Political Outcast—most recently here and here, for example. But the context of those other incident make me think this fits a pattern. According to KFOR News: On Jan. 3, court records claim Pearl Pearson fled the scene of a car accident in south Oklahoma City. An affidavit claims that when Pearson was pulled over along the Easter Ave. exit, just off I-40, he resisted two officers and refused to Read more […]

State Legislators Compelled To Outlaw Tormenting Children For Chewing Food Into Vague Gun-Shapes

Let me begin this post with a personal anecdote. True story: I was once arrested for participating in an abortion protest. It was a standard banana-republic arrest and charges were dropped because there was no basis for arresting us. But I got to spend a night in jail—a rather light version where all us pro-lifers got to sack out together. The room was quite familiar to me—the paint, the décor, the cinderblock wall underneath. It was the same as every American schoolroom I had ever been inside. Moving Read more […]

Chuck Hagel’s Dictatorship Defied: 6 States Refuse To Submit National Guard To Federal Pansex Regime

Chuck Hagel has accused six states of violating Federal law and spreading prejudice. The “Federal law” is his own made-up belief in his own made-up authority to impose his made-up definition of marriage on states that don’t believe in his authority to overturn their state laws. The “prejudice” is an insane thought control campaign where the US government is demanding that all Christians spit on the authority of King Jesus and the Bible, and pretend that men and women are interchangeable Read more […]
