“Quote of the Day”

Pat, the fuckhead, Robertson, said: Jesus would have stopped the tornado if only people had prayed enough.

 “If enough people were praying He would’ve intervened, you could pray, Jesus stilled the storm, you can still storms.”

August 1936.

“Example of self-resettlement in California. Oklahoma farm family on highway between Blythe and Indio. Forced by the drought of 1936 to abandon their farm, they set out with their children to drive to California. Picking cotton in Arizona for a day or two at a time gave them enough for food and gas to continue. On this day they were within a day’s travel of their destination, Bakersfield. Their car had broken down en route and was abandoned.”

– Dorothea Lange for the Resettlement Administration

Fred E. Ray Smith (R-OK) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

Via: Wonkette

Well here is a nice young man, Fred E. Ray Smith, running for Oklahoma state Senate, from jail, where he was taken for warrants and drunk driving and driving without a license or registration, and also he owes so much child support and his ex has a protective order out against him. We assume he is going to win, because “R-Oklahoma.”

But let us take a moment to admire what his campaign manager/fiancee, SunShine Fox, has to say about the whole mishegas.

Fox, who is engaged to Smith, said it was a simple oversight that Smith didn’t pay the fines and that Smith has been making regular payments in child support, but recently became unemployed. Fox said all of Smith’s paycheck goes to child support every month. “Don’t you wish all men would do that?” Fox said.

Weeeellll …. sure! Sounds like a swell fella! Good on you, SunShine! (Run, girl. Run like the wind.)

Oklahoma Doctor Refuses to Provide Emergency Contraceptive to RAPE VICTIM on Basis of Religious Conscience

Via: The Raw Story

An Oklahoma mother brought her daughter to a local hospital after she was raped only to be turned away and refused help by a doctor, purportedly because the hospital lacked the staff to properly process the victim’s claims and injuries. Welcome to the reality of processing sexual assault crimes in GOP-land.

The woman and her daughter were reportedly turned away because the hospital did not have any nurses who conduct rape exams on staff. Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE) are specially trained professionals who deal only with the delicate process of conducting rape exams. The SANE program is coordinated through the YWCA and is a collaboration with local law enforcement, the Oklahoma County District Attorney’s Office and public health officials. The collaborative effort is designed to ensure evidence is properly collected and stored without re-traumatizing the victim and ensuring the most effective prosecution of the perpetrator possible

In this case the doctor involved refused to conduct any exam, nor would he dispense any emergency contraception. The hospital issued a statement grounding those decisions in the need to coordinate through the SANE program. It could also be that this doctor had a moral objection to treating rape victims and dispensing emergency contraception, and thanks to abusive expanses of the conscience-clause by the right, simply refused to deal with her. Either way it’s a lose-lose for rape victims who now face the prospect of looking for treatment after an assault only to be turned away because of a lack of resources or because of religious objections.

The young woman asked the doctor whether or not emergency contraceptives were available and whether the doctor was simply refusing to provide them. The nurse told her “I will not give you emergency contraceptives because it goes against my belief.” The doctor refused to help her, even though she had just been raped, and refused to find another doctor to help her.

the “Sign of the Day”

Oklahoma Sen. Judy McIntyre (D), one of four women in the 48-member state Senate, looked out over a sea of homemade signs at a fetal personhood protest at the state Capitol on Tuesday and spotted one that she wanted to hold herself.

“If I wanted the government in my womb,” the sign said in painted blue letters, “I’d fuck a Senator.”

At the risk of offending some of her mostly male Republican colleagues, who recently voted to pass a controversial fetal personhood bill, she grabbed the sign and posed with it for photos.

“I was so excited about the fact that the women in Oklahoma have finally begun to wake up and fight for their rights,” she told HuffPost. “I saw a sea of signs that caught my eye, but this one in particular — I loved its offensive language, because it’s just as offensive for Republicans of Oklahoma to do what they’re doing as it relates to women’s bodies. I don’t apologize for it.”

Ralph ‘evidence, who needs evidence’ Shortey (R-OK) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

Via: Wonkette

What’s in your anusburger, Oklahoma, besides cow rectums, sawdust and glue?

It can be hard to tell!

Have you ever, as a result, worried to yourself, what if there are also ground up aborted human fetuses in here and I don’t even realize it?

Oklahoma state Senator Ralph Shortey — his real name! — worries so fervently about this possibility that he went and introduced a bill banning the use of aborted fetuses as an ingredient in “food or any other product intended for human consumption.” You know, JUST IN CASE, GUYS. (Dog food, on the other hand, is fine.)

~~~

Here is the entire text of Shortey’s bill, which we pray is the last remaining evidence of human civilization when aliens finally discover Earth:

No person or entity shall manufacture or knowingly sell food or any other product intended for human consumption which contains aborted human fetuses in the ingredients or which used aborted human fetuses in the research or development of any of the ingredients.

OH and also this award-winning soundbite from Shortey, who may or may not have shot three syringes full of psilocybin into his eyeballs immediately before he talked to this KRMG news reporter:

“There is a potential that there are companies that are using aborted human babies in their research and development of basically enhancing flavor for artificial flavors,” says Shortey.

He admits he has NO EVIDENCE that this fetus food nightmare is currently happening in Oklahoma or anywhere else, but then again there’s no evidence that an invisible giant lizard isn’t responsible every time Ralph Shortey’s car keys are definitely not where he left them last time. So there.

Donald Thompson, Former Oklahoma Judge, Won’t Receive Pension After Penis Pump Incident

Via: Huffington Post

A former Creek County judge convicted of exposing himself and using a male enhancement device while seated at the bench is not eligible to receive judicial retirement benefits, the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday.

The high court upheld a decision by the Oklahoma Public Employees Retirement System Board of Trustees, ruling that Donald D. Thompson, a 23-year veteran veteran of the Sooner State legal system, violated his oath of office by using a penis pump while presiding over trials, according to NewsOK.

Thompson served about 20 months in prison after being found guilty in 2006, at which time his monthly pension of $7,789  ($7,789 x 12 =  $93,468) was discontinued.

During his own trial, Thompson unsuccessfully argued that the criminal actions did not disrupt the proceedings in his courtroom, Tulsa World reported.

After leaving prison, Thompson registered as a sex offender.

He also faces a pending felony charge dating back to a July 19 traffic stop when police allegedly found Thompson driving under the influence.
