The Conservative Champion in Oklahoma for US Senate is Randy Brogdon

Primary Elections Tweet

 

a recent tweet from a post on facebook below:

Primary Elections are about electing the best person for the office. In the general you can pick the lesser of two bad choices if you don’t get someone who walks the talk through the primary options… Happy campaigning out there! Don’t forget to have fun and make friends while you are on the campaign trail. ‪#‎R3s‬ ‪#‎4life‬ ‪#‎4liberty‬

So everyone is a conservative now.  And oddly enough everyone is for liberty now.  Hmmmm.  Who are the real champions?  They are the ones who were there before it was cool.  Leading the way.  Standing on principle.

A View from the Edge — We’ve Been ‘Opted Out’ — Really!?! article by Rob Miller, an Oklahoma Educator

We have known since October that Oklahoma districts would be expected to participate in “item tryouts” (field tests) for our new Grade 3-8 testing vendor, Measured Progress, along with the End-of-Instruction field tests conducted by CTB/McGraw-Hill.

In a state department bulletin released last month, districts were told that students would be randomly selected to participate in one of these field tests, and that the testing would be scheduled after the operational testing window was complete in early May.

Honestly, it was a pleasant surprise when we found out last week that students and schools in the Jenks district were NOT randomly selected to participate in ANY of these field tests. However, when we discovered that Owasso Public Schools had also not been “randomly selected,” several of us became a little suspicious. As you may have heard, some parents and educators in Owasso made some waves recently because of their vocal opposition to implementation of Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in their district. Therefore, this news was way too coincidental for random chance.

So, I took it upon myself to make a few inquiries by phone and email. It did not take long to discover that we and Owasso were unique and that every other district in our area had been selected for this field testing.

Terminate the OHIET Letters and Calls Needed for Monday Meeting!

phone ringing
Please see OK-SAFE post here for more details and background to this post.  Here are the phone numbers included there and below that you will find a couple of emails for examples as needed.  Please note that in general calls are better than emails because if there are enough of them they generate an office ‘buzz’ at the capitol, but you do whatever makes sense for you and your time schedules.
Health and Human Services Committee Members:

  • Senator Brian Crain – Chair                   405-521-5620
  • Senator Rob Standridge – Vice Chair    405-521-5535
  • Senator Harry Coates              405-521-5547
  • Senator Kim David                   405-521-5590
  • Senator A J Griffin                    405-521-5628
  • Senator Constance Johnson    405-521-5531
  • Senator Dan Newberry             405-521-5600
  • Senator Jabar Shumate            405-521-5598
The first letter is mine and went via email to the entire committee.  The second letter is from Amanda Teegarden, the executive director of OK-SAFE also to the committee.  Bottom line, we need to terminate the OHIET or Oklahoma Health Insurance Exchange Trust ASAP!
.
Special thanks to Senator Nathan Dahm for leading the way on this matter!
.
.
Dear Members of the Health and Human Services Committee,
.

A quick note to let you all know that I very much agree that the OHIET should be terminated as rapidly as possible. I do hope all of you will stand up for the people of Oklahoma in protecting us from any further federal intrusion into matters best left to our state and our county and our family.

.

I would note that If we don’t collect and hand them the data, they will not have it.  I believe Ms. Teegarden’s letter below sums it up well, but I wanted you who serve on the committee to know of my position also.

.

I commend Senator Dahm for leading the way on this matter and I want my Senator to know of my stance on the matter as well.  I believe the people of this state have made their position abundantly clear.  It is important that our leaders do things to make sure we follow in practice what has been clearly spelled out in our founding documents and at the ballot box as well.

.

Thank you for your help in returning government to limited, constitutional matters and respecting personal responsibility and privacy along the way.

.

My health, my doctor, my business!

.
For Life and Liberty,
Sandra Crosnoe

Begin forwarded message:
Dear Senator,

.

SB 219 by Dahm/Moore is scheduled to be heard in Health and Human Services on Monday, 2/11/13.This bill would cause the OHIET (Oklahoma Health Information Exchange Trust) to cease to be in effect as of Jan. 1, 2014.  

.

I am asking that you please vote YES on SB 219. […T]his entity is using the SHIECAP federal grant money to implement the technological infrastructure necessary for what the public calls “ObamaCare” to work in this state.  This means the ability to transmit patient’s electronic health records intrastate and interstate. 

.

This infrastructure is set up to eventually connect with the payers system (insurance exchange), completing the connections between patient, provider and payer.  (This is the crux of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and it’s predecessor the Stimulus bill.)

.

The people of Oklahoma clearly objected to “ObamaCare” with the passage of SQ 756 in 2010; these people believed they were sending a clear message – NO to this type of health care “reform.”

SB 219’s amendatory language:

  1. G. The provisions of this section shall cease to be in effect on January 1, 2014. As of such date, the State Department of Health shall fulfill the purpose set forth in subparagraph a of paragraph 2
  2. of subsection B of this section with respect to grants awarded prior to the effective date of this act, but no further grants shall be accepted for such purpose, nor shall any further action be taken with respect to the purpose set forth in subparagraph b of paragraph 2 of subsection B of this section.

….

Thank you,
Amanda Teegarden
Executive Director

OK-SAFE Vote Reminder! Six State Questions on the November 6, 2012 Ballot.

click on pic to see complete newsletter vote reminder online

OK-SAFE, Inc. – There is plenty of discussion, and disagreement, on the six state questions on tomorrow’s ballot.

It must be pointed out that none of the state questions originated with the people, via initiative petition (i.e. the Personhood Amendment initiative petition effort was squelched).

The questions that did make it to the ballot came via the legislature; this means they had the approval of party “leadership” and can indicate that politics played more of a role than principled leadership.

The questions deal with some challenging issues (property taxation, affirmative action, bonded indebtedness).

After many debates, and additional research, OK-SAFE still recommends a NO vote on 5 of the questions and YES vote (tentative) on 1 question.

5 No’s and 1 Yes (tentative)

The NO Votes are SQ 758, 759, 762, 764, and 766. The one YES vote, with reservations, is SQ 765.
