How You Can Support Prison Fellowship's Angel Tree Campaign

"Hey guys, I want to talk to you about prison fellowship we're in day two of Mike's annual prison fellowship angel tree campaign where your donations will make it possible for boys and girls all over America who have a mom or dad in prison to get to experience the blessing of a personalized message and the gospel through the angel tree program of our friends at the nonprofit, prison fellowship. Incredibly, over one and a half million Americans have a mom or dad that's in prison and some of them ask themselves, does my mommy or daddy still love me? Do they even remember me anymore? It's heartbreaking. But that won't happen in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where the local angel tree volunteers know how important their mission is in this year's campaign. It's really devastating for a child to not have their parents around during Christmas time or to know that somebody loved them. 'cause that's really the key. They need to know that somebody loved them. Just having that connection with their parent and sending that message from the incarcerated parent. And to get that on Christmas morning, love dad or love mom is one of the greatest gifts you could ever give a child. So Thanksgiving is this Thursday and then before you can blink Christmas will be here. You can still make an eternal difference in the lives of these children when you support angel tree by going to Mike online dot com, click on the angel tree banner at the top of the page and make a donation.

The Power of State Legislatures

"Debbie and I have been talking about the power of state legislatures to address issues in particularly election issues. I mean, look at this. Look at the not just GOP dominance in all these states, but it's the degree of dominance. I'm just going to read very quickly Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wyoming. And again, those are the states in which Republicans dominate both houses, but the margins are huge. Look at Wyoming. The Senate Republicans 28. It doesn't surprise me in white. And the house. 55 to 5. 5 to 5. But look at Texas, honey, Senate, 19 to 12 House 86 to 64. So I mean, you're not talking about one seat or two seat. You're talking about decisive majority. What Republicans say in these states go? Yeah. Those.

Mitch McConnell being returned to lead the GOP Senate. One of his colleagues, Jim Langford, just won a thunderous reelection for another 6 years. I'm not sure if at the sentence or a big win. I know you want to serve the people of Oklahoma. Welcome back, senator lankford. How are you? I'm doing very well. Good morning. Yeah, by the way, it's a bit of a boat. It's a victory and a sentence as well. So I'm very glad for you. I was at a national Republican senatorial committee event, probably a year and a half ago with you and your wonderful wife and with Rick Scott and everyone. You know, Republican senators may have disagreements. But they actually, they don't have fisticuffs. I tried to explain that in the first hour I'd like you to expand on that. Any partnership. And I've run two law firms with more than 20 partners. And they disagree. And then they get that they have a vote in the end. You go along with what the vote is. Is that the way the Senate Republican caucus will work? That is the way that it works actually. There's always frustration. We obviously underperform what we thought we would during the elections last week. So there's a need for a very serious conversation about where we're going. How we communicating the issues, what are the key things that we're actually trying to be able to promote and put out there. Those are hard conversations that need to have and we spent hours Monday and Tuesday going through some very Frank conversations on that as we should.

Doug Examines the Governor's Race in Oklahoma

"Turn to one now that is, I think, in the end is going to hold for the Republicans, but it is far closer than frankly, it should be. Mayor for Allen, who was the governor of Oklahoma, run in 2014. She won by 15 points. Kevin Smith, who is the current governor of Oklahoma one by 12 points just four years ago. And now this race is a dead heat. As far as polling goes, it's a dead heat. This is also one of those races where the national environment is, I think, affecting an inversely a little bit. Kevin said, he's been a great supporter of not only Republican conservative colleges, but also criminal justice reform, making sure his state is getting the most bang for their buck as far as when it comes to punishing those who do wrong. But yet also making sure that there is a way for them to come back home to get jobs to stay out of jail, all things that conservatives should be about. And it's really interesting in this race you've had the Democrat joy hofmeister who has been attacking Kevin Smith for basically doing things that Democrats have talked about for a long time and that is reintegration and using criminal justice system to actually help people break the cycle of violence and break the cycle of pain in their own life. This is a very much of a disappointment and the idea that from governors actually taking a stand on issues that matter, Republicans have got to come together in this race. I think they will. Mark Wayne Mullen is on the Senate side here and he's going to win and cruise to this election fairly easily. James lankford is well. I think this will pull this into the Oklahoma governor's race and that you'll see when this one. But

How Are Blue State Governors Getting Away With the Damage They Caused?

"To get to a question here. Daniel from Oklahoma, Charlie, why is it that these blue state governors are getting away with all the damage that they did to locking down society and keeping children masked? Love the show, and I want to get involved with turning point USA. Well, thank you. For that, and I love Oklahoma. Yeah, Jake tapper actually said something similar to this, believe it or not, fake Jake on CNN, where he said he is shocked that there hasn't been a national conversation about the damage that has been done to kids because of school closures and virtual learning. It will go down as one of the worst mistakes ever done in the history of western civilization, not one of the greatest evils, one of the biggest mistakes locking down an entire generation to prevent them from a virus that wasn't a great threat to them at all. And yet we created all these other problems because of the regime of fear because of scientism. You see, scientism believes that science is the only form of knowledge. That there is no morality or ethics or philosophy, but it's just science all the time. And as we have said many times on this program, you can not get your morality from a test tube. Scientism ends up being necessarily totalitarian. And science then becomes a tool of oppressing people.

Abortion restrictions had been introduced this year in all three states and as of august states had enacted ninety seven those introduced antiabortion restrictive statutes and bringing the total number of state abortion restrictions enacted since roe v wade to one thousand three hundred twenty seven. Three five antiabortion laws enacted this year by the oklahoma legislature could take effect on november first pending court action to get a fuller understanding of the all out religious right assault on reproductive rights. We invited the aclu of oklahoma's new not new. Now i guess executive director a former regional director of public policy at orders organizing for planned parenthood. Great plains to join us for this week's observer cast too big into what's happening on the legal front and what oklahomans can do to protect a woman's right to choose to migrate heavy with us. Thanks so much for making the time. And i'm happy to be here so thanks for having me i'm talking about is very important and timely issue. Well so we're all we had. We get here so currently right now. Oklahoma is facing potentially three anti abortion. Laws that could go into effect november. One these bills these laws. If they are allowed to go into effect the first one would require only obgyn board-certified doctors to be able to perform abortions and the other two really are have created this very cumbersome unnecessary regulatory schemes from medication abortion in. I think it's really important for these last two around medication abortion that could go into effect. These would be the first in the country and it's also really important to know that these regulatory screens go so much further than trying to regulate medication. Abortion so the abortion pill. Did you go so much further. So we are in a very Unfortunately scary time for abortion access. I think it's just russell really important to know. Is that while by. Just kind of describing. What the bills do it. Sounds very maybe not as cumbersome or not as Scary but the reality is if any of these Laws are able to go into effect november one. It will decimate abortion access in oklahoma which is already very limited because of the mini restrictions. That been past years ago. So i have a question. So let's start with the first one with the obgyn's being only one that can perform abortions How how what's the current landscape like who can Except sorry i. I just realized i'm rusty and They they can only perform abortions. Currently in certain settings is that correct. That's correct so currently escape in oklahoma. I guess there's not a great question. So currently abortion in oklahoma have to be performed in specialized hospital which is not as severe as regulations as inventory surgical centers so when outpatient surgery center weakening due at heart surgery but it has to be regulated as specialized clinic hospital so every abortion provider the four providers oklahoma their clinics are regulated by the state those all abortions have to be performed by a licensed medical doctor so currently oklahoma. The doctors that are performing so some live here. Oklahoma some are actually Travelled out of state to come perform abortions all licensed in oklahoma's worst there either practice doctors or their obgyn's An if this bill were go in place that would on leave less than half of the current providers able to provide. And i think it's really important to know like your family. A family medicine doctor can also deliver babies. Think people don't realize that like in lots of state it's not just an. Obgyn is not the doctor you go to deliver a baby is i think that's such an important part of it. Is that an in a state where. Obgyn's are really far and few between Twenty seventeen oklahoma actually had the third smallest population of djing. Gyn's so to cover of the state. So obgyn care is such a loss already to add. Additional no requirement for providers and the truth of the matter is abortion is one of the safest medical procedures in healthcare. It's actually safer than getting your wisdom teeth out You abortion providers Have years of training so even if an obgyn was required to perform they would still have to go through training as our doctors currently go through they are regulated by the state and by the planets that they work at. So what we know. Is that these bills. The only the only of these bills is to decrease and eliminate abortion. They have nothing to do with the safety.

We've seen a lot of negativity. I have never seen so much support and and as you said you know with. This rhetoric went on so much support for muslims and on top of that these are refugees from people who are not muslim in the state of oklahoma. I'm it's unprecedented you know. And we've been clicking items that are office and people are just coming through with their children People of all ages and just saying we just wanna help. If you need more will give you more. You know we owe it to these people you know. These are going to be our neighbors and financial donations as well. I mean it's just been unbelievable. So yes i do worry. I absolutely do worry. But there's also something good going on in our state that we can't discount at all and one of the reasons That's one of the reasons we got involved from the get go. You know when catholic charities called on us as we want you to be a part of this we absolutely because we want to refugees number one you know we put these welcome kiss together. So we want them to be greeted with practical items like pda items and hygiene items also to get a copy of the koran and prayer rugs and prayer beads. So they are reassured. And that's why. I told catholic charities. They need that reassurance stepping off the plane that their culture and their faith are safe in oklahoma from the people who are bringing them in ryan. So that's the first thing they get when they step off the plane and go to their their accommodations and then we deliver a allow meal to them. That was actually an ideal catholic.

"Will you know the more extreme groups like al qaeda and the taliban and let's make no mistake about it. You know when we look at things in very black and white terms like oh. It's you know. The west verse. Terrorists are what whatnot nurses bad. Good versus bad. That's really where we have problems. And that's what lewis call a spate of spayed and and i have when it comes to this particular subject. I have no shame insane. I mean look at the current chair of the oklahoma republican party. right john. Bennett has a history of attacking muslims in the state and he has gone onto the deals. At least on the official oklahoma republican party page attack. Refugees am basically insinuating that they're violent people that they're associated with terrorists and things like that but the truth of the matter is when you look at reports not from me not from some random muslim but when you look at united nations reports you can see that when it comes to groups like the taliban isis al qaeda groups that are textbook extremist groups no different than the kkk right which is a textbook extremist group here in the united states. Muslims are just as much victims if not more victims of these extremist groups than anyone else right isis. Actually you know use that. As an example they gain notoriety by executing the journalists on tv and that was of course you know incredibly tragic sad and and there is no excuse for that you know horrific act that they did but a lot of people overlook the fact that like ninety five percent of their victims are muslims that refused to support their efforts that refuse to help them in their extreme actions. And things like that. So i think that is the issue. People are overlooking this and then on top of that one thing that really bothers me is not just the notion that people are ignoring that. These refugees helped our own government right in fighting against extremism and trying to establish stability. But look even what john bennett said. You know as head of the republican party is that there is no way that you can properly vet these refugees. Well what he what concerns me is what he's saying is not that he can't vet he's basically saying you can't trust our government right and that's a me as a bigger problem. I'm afraid that we're getting into this. You know conversation where we're saying we can't trust the refugees but we also can't trust our governments and that's that to me. Is you know un-american. I think that gets to the heart of. I'm like eventually gonna be able to articulate really bothers me about this one hand it's a failure president biden but on the other these afghans are people. That should not be here. Right you know and it's just You know we are unsafe. Because of the way he pulled out of afghanistan But oh wait a minute. Those people don't make us safe either You know it's just this incredible Well no one is surprised at the hypocrisy anymore. Right in no a surprise via. I mean this is just this is just stock in trade of what they do But i just. I wonder like you know. I don't know i don't ask you to speak for them but do they. do. They really know what i i do.

"A hundred years since the tulsa race massacre for us to finally have a semi public conversation about it and finally four to start getting into oklahoma history curriculums and still. We haven't done a great job of really talking about it and highlighting the reality of the circumstances that that impacted us as a state one hundred years ago that are still impacting us now. So same thing right. We don't look at what we did. You know in certain countries and then we we have to go invade them. We have to go tear their country apart. We have to tear their government apart. We have to you know really. What's the word. I'm looking for dislike. Cause trauma on innocent bystanders which is a majority of the people ryan same goes for afghanistan. I mean the central intelligence agency the cia basically funded the tall on in the nineteen nineties nineteen as in nineteen ninety s to fight against the russians. I mean these are facts. I'm not this is not a conspiracy theory right so all that means said you know the people that are coming out of afghanistan now. These are people. Allied was the united states government that helped to fight against extreme groups like al qaeda and the taliban that had nothing and wanted nothing to do with osama bin laden who he wasn't even an afghani he was a saudi national. That ended up in afghanistan. Right so these poor people have been stuck in the middle of basically an extremist group and a western government and and they just are trying to live a life. Just like any of us you know. Raise their families feed their children. And at the end of the nigh be able to put their head on their pillow and and sleep peacefully. But we don't get that because we tend to look at countries in the middle east or africa for that matter and we look at third world countries. We you know. Have this Presumption that they have a backwards way of life or something like that but no. These people are just as human as we are. They have same goals and dreams that we do but we meaning as americans. Most of us have never been put in those circumstances and honestly we should give credit to them. They're coming over here. I actually met one of them who landed in oklahoma city and he came to the mosque ended the friday prayers and this past friday and he was just beaming with with some sense of hope. You know and and positivity that i could not even understand having gone through circumstances so yes marianne. Sorry i i tend to go on and on. It's a professor in me. I guess it's my fifth semester. Oklahoma state so i'm in really in professor mode but yeah no we need to really learn as americans to look at the whole picture and to understand that we played a part in creating part of the chaos and then we want to go in and disrupt people's lives in order to try to clean up the mess we created in the first place so these these things are very complex and we have to look at not just the last twenty years but the last forty or fifty years at least understand.

"Yeah it is our business if our kids can't be able to learn in a safe environment then It's a nonstarter we we're back to square one and it was avoidable. Well but i tell you what. Let me let me just say. This is also a time where we are seeing leadership across the state shine in local communities and there are very courageous leaders in schools and districts. And i'm so proud of them. Let me just also say that teachers all across the state. They have never stopped like there has not been You know a downtime Over the summer they were still doing summer school they. This has just been eighteen months or more now of Going full throttle with no break and no time to recharge And and then with even greater needs to shoulder on The education french for for our students and for teachers that that are working to support them. So it's just really a time that i want to give as many opportunities for everyone to know that there's a lot of unseen work that's going on of it that would make you proud and Is personal sacrifice to ensure that our kids have an education that that district schools leaders can be proud of To give but their hands are tied and this is again where we are and They're not gonna give up. I'm not giving up We wanna keep families engaged. We understand. there's a lot of emotion around this and there should be. This is about the health of our kids. and and the long-term impacted cove it and and the long-term Impact of any learning gaps or lost opportunities So it should make us Angry that that we're having to deal with this but there are some things. None of us can control and yet We've got to have Some encouragement for those Even when we have disagreements. There's going to be disagreements But there's i think Opportunity for oklahomans to really slow this spread if we can get kids Event over twelve and above vaccinated if adults will Take their questions any hesitancy to their doctors. And hopefully we won't have more and more stories of those unvaccinated that are suffering in hospitals. I have one more question. What do you say to the to anyone who might say. This is federal government overreach. There's a potential I i do. I'm we're going to be very careful as we explore what is happening in our state and in the letter as well as in Other states we may be treated a little differently. I don't know so we're still in that process of examining that But where there's overreached a we will slap down where we need to step up as a state. We'd better do it and i will not be shy about. There is some irony here though that That those who might get their next boat about this being federal overreach probably were the same ones. You big anything about state overreach where local control is concerned. So i'll just throw that out there as somebody who gets irritated about better term. I think about it. But that's just me some polish up your crystal ball here from the house this thing. Play out in your view. What where do we go for early in the fall semester. It's a really dicey time. Obviously we are seeing signs of upticks in vaccination rates among adults which is a great thing we know we talked last time about schools. You know helping service as as as a vaccination centers and so forth to help get this thing done across oklahoma. But where do you. How do you see this thing. Don't going over the next few months. And where do you see or is it too early to know when we might come out the other side of this where we don't have to worry about sending our kids and grandkids to school anymore. Well let's just remember as of the taping of this august thirtieth. So doesn't it feel like we are mid semester somehow any yes so we are getting worse for you than it is for us. I know we are early. End of the semester and Again i do. Think there are some promising signs Seventy thousand were More were vaccinated In this last month compared to other The month prior. I believe and we are seeing an uptick in those willing to take the vaccine. That is very promising and we need to keep that trends moving in that direction. That's gonna make a difference as soon as we also see that more parents are willing to have their twelve and above vaccinated. They can do that right now. Others also the opportunity for third vaccine and that may help with.

"Other places of there were school leaders and communities that understood the science and certainly understood the cascading effect of of unchecked you know mutated delta variant and what that would mean to their ability to keep people safe and keep school open and so i do applaud those leaders who are trying to do the right thing It is very difficult to imagine Having to make choice about Adhering to a law or protecting kids shouldn't be that way seems crazy though the public health Threat of this magnitude. We've seen a play out for this group time wax still sort of a coherent policy and it's obviously not unique to oklahoma. But it's just unfathomable to me that somehow children and teachers and staff are not elevated above. You know our our own alleged personal freedoms people keep talking about the oklahoma standard and and you know it strikes me that in this what we're seeing allow people as the oklahoma standard is what the hell i wanna do is nobody nobody can make you do other walks and yet these are the same people who have understood year after year in classroom after classroom. When there's the peanut allergy with a child in a class they they abide by the important notification that no peanut products can come through this door And everyone adjust because of a student that was assigned to that classroom assigned to that teacher and everyone's affected in that room But we understand why and we understand. It's life and death situation for that child a we also know that There was a time when we didn't know the effects of second hand smoke and today there's not a restaurant or a building aura. Even place like a car with a child in it that you would smoke because of the impact of secondhand smoke and how deadly that can be for those. That aren't even smoking. So there are many times that we understand and shift our rights to protect those around us and this is certainly one of those times where it has to happen or people will die so i didn't think there is some confusion out there and we've talked some amongst ourselves about bad that People are not entirely clear. What can and cannot be done Can you kind of give us an overview of set the record straight on celebrities. Things were district. Say now we we can't mandate quarantining or you know whatever the issue might be some some really hot button things that you're saying at the state department where you guys are answering questions or responding to you know. Yeah prudential concerns one way or the other. Well we have set. And i have said that we do need you know we are. We are in a position where districts are trying to think through what they can do to still abide by the law But protect people and It shouldn't have to be this way. But i do think that those districts that are setting expectations or calling it a requirement but if there is still a parental option a process for opting out it isn't a mandate a tree mandate would be if you're not wearing a mouse then you can't enter and you know then. There is a different option. If you choose to not do that. that's different. That's that's a mandate so by our own definitions here we. We're not doing that as a main Now oklahoma city reported in the first week that they did. They are requirement for masking with the parental opt out process. That out of thirty five thousand students only sixty one at the time had utilized that process. And i'm sure that has probably grown of but it is not anywhere close to a number that would disc- i think deter utilizing that strategy. Since it is now the default setting would be that when you walk in. Everyone ask on with some exceptions very few. What is the state department's guidance on corn with positive cases. Well this really really got out of control this year and really what ended up happening. There was some confusion about How the legal process where a district judge would be part of enforcing warranty would expire before. Well would take so long that that person would no longer be in quarantine so that understanding lead to some confusion where district's thought it was optional. We made that very clear on friday in a joint communication piece and faq's with the state department of health and the state department of education. And we put all of our school districts on notice that they need to quarantine It is their duty to notify those who are infected or those who are exposed That they must abide by those Rules and requirements of quarantine. There is an option to test out on a certain day. I believe it. Stay five if you've been exposed and that can shorten quarantine for someone In some cases also being vaccinated could shorten corentin or or eliminate it but we have to be flexible and recognized that. There's a lot of breakthrough cases right now even with those who are vaccinated and when we are serving and working in School districts where we know we have hundreds of thousands of children that are unable to be vaccinated because they're ineligible under the age of twelve I think we have a real duty to adhere to quarantine In a way that makes sense for those that you are going to be serving and Putting at risk if you know you have been exposed so just to be clear If there's a positive case of covet in a classroom the close contacts in a positive case must quarantine for a certain amount of time based on their vaccinations. That is that correct. That is the guidance from the health department. Right yes and so 'isolation is an absolute. And whether you're quarantined or not if you are infected and our testing positive and then the quarantine is the You know period of time away in Depending on how long will be if you test out on day. Five with a negative test.

"It was no. Mac is owned by jesse. And if those rigs were modernised can be and it was. I mean it was operating faster. It was quick it was safer because a lot of manual tasks that we did like throwing chains were no longer needed but that also meant there were less people required on the rig floor itself and not saying there weren't any less tool pushers or a you know four people on the ground but for those like dangerous jobs to use to take actual humans to we're not needed and so that was ultimately less human jobs and less opportunity for employment like people like my colleagues on the old rig and so as that continues to be the trend of automation even automating a lot of white collar jobs. Now we're gonna have to come up with new and different innovative solutions on how we can not not only get people the funding they need but then also continue to give them purpose through dignified work always liked to ramp these conversations up with some kind of message to the folks. Were listening on your audience about hannah. We you know what we can do. Those of us who see merit these ideas to help. Advance the ball.

"And when you the state has over a billion dollars in phones to distribute asking for ten I don't see that it's too much of a risk in. I would especially on the back end when we show how much it's actually in the save. Oklahoma run in not only save taxpayer money's will give war people opportune knitting. Keep them in their homes and keep families attacked. Well you're already at work Basically racing matching funds that leverage that even more yet yeah. Lots of money has the has been raised. That's for sure. Well i feel like if there's a take away from this conversation is that there are more options available to us than what we currently utilize right like. We could really think outside the box which appraise a hey but there are Ways to do things for families to do things for oklahomans That require new. Thinking in probably unsettled notions of you know how things should be done. But i mean thirty other ways to do things yes better ways to do. Things but entire one hundred percent agree and with the way in which we have to collaborate and work out. It's just it's so exciting to bring these ideas to structures system like state government because a lot of my colleagues never considered or i mean this is pretty new is mr hamilton said. This is Some of some of these branding ideas have never been considered and could be the way of the future obviously whereas it will have to rethink orcas as we go on in decades from now. Whether that's a guarantee jobs program you'd be ira. Maybe both but dan. When i mean just real quick story i mean one of the reasons that Many of my colleagues on the rig didn't get rehired with newer rigs because automation had displaced a lot of jobs. We completed on that. I i i worked on which was built in the nineteen seventies. Where you through the chain. I mean it was all you had these huge tongs actually youtube video. I made me wearing gopro hard hat. Plus making the connection on a rig lindsay oklahoma. Actually dibble right. Outside of lindsey after those rigs and this is small exploration company we only had one rig operating there were two others laid over and this was at the height of the boom pretty much we laid that over an and many of we were laid off basically and i got picked up with a much more modern..

"Mike is just happened to be that age when they need a childcare in the middle of one of the worst pandemics generation and so yes that that came together. And obviously it's impacted me personally but it's impacted people across the state and country countries. Well and when you're building an idea a momentum for an idea like this it's important to have the stakeholders bought in on your side so just the fact that Vhs secretary director justin brown is this is important to him not necessarily be ideas which needs to be tweaked. Which is why we have an interim studying but we're gonna be collaborating in working together on actual legislation. That can have a chance of passing in one sad happens. We talked to constituencies. We talked to oklahoma and we talked to like the pat pots foundation. Talk to you know. Joe dorman screw oklahoma child advocacy institute. We get just different stakeholders and organizations and associations onboard and then Put political pressure on legislators to not only here the bills but hopefully passing. And that's a whole long process. It will take place over the next year or two with the whole is part of it to the notion of really sort of educating the general public to the notion that you know what we could do this government could be the vehicle for this sort of thing and it really is sort of this oak mentality. I'm an okay. So i i'm not using that term pejoratively here You know that sort of things about you know you know independent rugged individualism you know is the is the mantra new. So part of it is part of a trying to convince people at large the play a role here and could really make a difference in the lives of job. Because i'm sorry but it. Just i think too. Many people get caught up on the idea of government involvement as control rather than leader Right government lied on this. That have been Inactive i've got i've got much stronger word passive a reactive. I mean like government's job to lead. Like i feel like this is just like an untapped concept for republicans right like they feel like what i see is inaction in taking a backseat right instead of ideas like this..

"Affordable childcare also heard from constituents in my district who own daycares and. There's just a lot that we could do to improve policy on both fronts and so taking their ideas and consideration into consideration by developed three initiatives that i plan to put put into legislation and file in this december for the twenty to twenty twenty two legislative session and we can go more into those. But that's a little background about me and Why believe that. The childcare is so important. do you find a you know. Obviously this is a subject particularly when you think about where oklahoma sits in national rankings. you know this is not a great place to be chung l. In in in many ways it's not a great place to be apparent. Either i've given the economic realities in oklahoma today. Do you find your legislative. Colleagues are receptive to these sorts of ideas. Have you had a chance to talk very many about this or do you find that. They you know they really felt. This is a different. This is a group that maybe doesn't fully understand the challenges that people for example in your district or the jew even individually with a one in a three year old face in oklahoma. You know and i would say on the democratic side. It's unanimous in their support in recognizing the importance of early childhood development. My colleagues across the aisle are. It's important to them if they're they've been personally affected by either if they have young children or maybe they have young grandchildren and they know the struggles. So typically if they've had a personal experience in this with these issues then yeah the. The support is is very strong. It is extremely difficult. My kids run a six month waiting list and they got into got anti fulltime daycare on back in june. Actually a one week after the legislative session ended so therefore six months it was extremely challenging. And it doesn't even own a candle to what A lot of other parents had to go through with more rigid scheduling in. Their jobs is a legislator Obviously i take voting very seriously I've missed very very few votes in my tenure humboldt. Last session was one of those where i had to prioritize my kids because they didn't have fulltime daycare just wasn't available and so they had more. Patchwork care We we we actually got into mother's day out Which was only three days a week for a couple of hours and tailored works fulltime and I i do too..

"Of eight from you know in lieu of funding from the state and federal government. But you can't bond against it and so now all of a sudden if you have another drain on your bonding capacity and somebody school districts that are already struggling with their capital base. I could see that developing into a real problem moving forward into the future. So it's it's it's not it in my mind. it's not a good scenario. And whether intended or not it's going to put pressure on these schools. And i feel like the hid lead to lead the consolidation. Which neil i'm not gonna. I don't have a window in the men's also. I don't know what's what's pushing all of this capital but i. I do know even back when i was in state out. There was definitely groups out there both at inside and outside of government that this has been a secret wish of there's for decades to really cut down the number of rural schools in oklahoma You know i. I remember one argument. I got into with a legislator from northeast. Oklahoma and and i don't wanna knock folks at jinx but i remember one time he was talking about how we had too many schools in roger mills county and he was wanting to to get rid of the number of administrators in in counties and i pointed out to him that there were more assistant coaches in the jinx school system than there was principals and superintendents in all roger mills county. And so you know if all of a sudden we're gonna start consolidating schools because you don't like the fact that you've got schools that are over three miles apart having a superintendent just so your constituents set and watch football game on friday night then a right and that's the tail was wagging the dog because you've already got kids riding the bus for two three hours in some instances that's not that that's not right we end when you look beyond that economic impact on the community the loss of identity the the basically the death of the town those are things. I'm very concerned about when we start talking about school funding. I think those are the kind of things that we that that. I'm hoping will get injected back into the discussion is right now. I think i think there are a little bit absent in the discussion on some of these issues that state capital i. You know. I feel like i live in norman And i feel like there's there's I don't wanna say outsize but a majority of dominance of rural legislators Specifically republican In currently in oklahoma state legislature. What is happening that. What is creating this. Disconnect between those who are elected specifically from our rural communities and that are still voting for these pieces of legislation. Are they just being educated by the wrong folks are they. Because you know oh. Sba in costa in all those groups have pounded. The you know the the floors up there the capital you know. Is it really just a matter of their hearing. Bad information from more influential people why they let me let me let me back up just a little bit because i can even say in my own in my own home legislative district and the district strands it. It's not a monolith there are there are Senators state senators. That voted in. My area voted against the changes in education funding. Yeah the state. Representative voted for it. you had a state fate sooner age. Senators vote against it. And you had some stemming it across the board it's not it's not everybody's voting one way or the other. Although i do think part of the challenge is first of all there's been scant information about these changes and press people know what's going on in folk you. Del located right lake School school funding policy is extraordinarily complicated. It is but i think people understand when you say it's going to change the school funding formula. It's gonna hurt your local school. Dench lake heard him on down the line and these are instant. That ain't that tough press. Release dr off. But i think there's a i think there's first of all there's an there's a dearth of A definitely a lack of information. That's going out into the rural areas on these issues. Specifically in that void is being filled by other folks. That are pushing out of the things. I mean i can tell you right now. You can pick up newspaper and you can read a press. Release the oklahoma cancel public affairs whereas pressure leave school board. Sociation about this. I m seen it. I mean maybe they got one out there. But i know some of the newspaper editors and stockbuilding me they'd printed because reason why the ocpa press release their john white space in between and that's what in so. You're not sending out to these people as urged thing. Nobody's trying to reach out to these folks. Nobody sending stuff to ron hayes. And the oklahoma farm open sending stuff out the local radio stations. Nobody's getting these things out the people and because of that when one side. When if i'm gonna say here. I'm going to talk to you and nobody else talking to you eventually. You're going to start believing when i say 'cause nobody else's saying any that's the first thing is nobody's talking about these issues and then you have the segregation of the media where you know so many people tractor hell. I've i've log ground as a kid with an squawk box in the cab of a forty six thirty. John was am radio. There ain't a whole lot you can listen to am radio. I listened to talk radio. You got it. Felt how that shifted over the years from locally source talkradio yet guys like bob durgin and and carlton cordell in some of these others. And all of a sudden you had rush limbaugh and you can kind of see and that's dark weighing in on how people rank the newspaper the air radio the off center. Don't fox news then you throw in facebook. You know that they might not on grand kids. Somebody grows in some in. There just ended there. You go and it's one of those things that you know and i'm el- i'm not saying that that that that that right wing folks are all the time they're not mean any better. I mean it's the everybody's right on something sometimes at the end of the day there when all you hear is one side of the discussion. Then that's that's what you're going to believe because you have no other information fall acco asked the first thing that i see that i've i've watched over the years first of all is that is that everybody. Thank you gets up in oklahoma in the oklahoma. Get on channel nine and you get some legislators. That's what you want to make a difference. Get it out to the people on what's going on and that's that's not necessarily on social. You asked first thing to get stuff out local papers because you know what everybody takes local papers. You've got a week to read it and You know you basketball. You want to find out who died. You want to find out who's anniversary you got all week to read the darn thing to get something in their more likely. Somebody's your it. That's the medians like that. People don't don't think about and don't utilize anymore. They don't find ways to tell that message And then when you've got legislators who now all of a sudden are more concerned about up primary and about people with money supporting someone who challenge them primer and i can even tell you from my experience as a as a legislator in the majority leadership is a powerful line and they come in and they tell you how smart jar and they tell you how great yard and then if you still tell him that you got problems with what they're doing they start to tell you how you're not going to serve on this committee and this bill gonna die and you're gonna start off sending the phone booth down in parking lot instead the opposite in right now and some people have big deal. I mean they wanna be popular. They don't want to be on the outside. It can get donatella i. There was an education. Quite frankly that lloyd bentsen was pushing my second term state legislature. You democrats opposed it. Oppose it because all my superintendents were against it. My teachers were luke warm on it was not a which issue my teachers will luke warm because it was going to have a financial impact on the school superintendent. Said we just can't afford it. I stood against it. Lloyd bentson got mattering up hornet at me and it took him a year and a half get over it. But you know what the way i looked at it. I like lord benson. I consider ran.
