“I think we need to be tolerant of people who think different than us, but this is Oklahoma and that’s not going to fly here.” – Oklahoma State Rep. Don Armes
KRISTI KIRK (PATRIOTS AND PAULIES POLITICS & NEWS) – New York’s Satanic Temple released a sneak peek last week at a Satanic monument they hope will sit next to a replica of the Ten Commandments on the grounds of the Oklahoma State capitol building. The Satanists say that the First Amendment doesn’t allow Oklahoma to implicitly endorse Christianity and Judaism without letting the worshippers of the dark lord put up their own statue, too.
While there isn’t a chance in hell that Oklahoma’s Capitol Preservation Commission will approve a monument to Satan, enough people think it is a good idea that the group raised $30,000 in a crowd-funding campaign to build the statue — a 7-foot-tall goat figure with children at its feet (“We want kids to see that Satanism is where the fun is,” a spokesperson for the Satanic Temple told CNN.)
“I think they’re trying to get our goat,” says Oklahoma Rep. Paul Wesselhoft.
“The IRS is like the mafia. You pay for protection but you end up feeling impoverished, confused, and with no understanding of how your taxes are going to be spent.” – Mark Fidelman, Forbes.com
KRISTI KIRK (PATRIOTS AND PAULIES POLITICS & NEWS) – Whatd’ya get when you cross a Libertarian with a Republican? A “liberty Republican?” Or a “Libertarian Republican” perhaps? I prefer, “Republitarian.” But then I think the elephant-porcupine hybrid makes a ‘cute mascot.’
According to the Washington Times, in polite circles, Republicans who borrow a few pages from the Libertarian Party playbook are called “Libertarian leaning” Republicans — which a new poll reveals is now about 41% of the GOP voter base (or closer to 80 percent if you include Republican-leaning Independents.)
Yes, you read it correctly.
Republicans in record numbers are leaning more toward the ideals and principles of Libertarianism — and if you are a fiscally conservative Republican with a moderate social conscience, chances are you’re one of them!
KRISTI KIRK (PATRIOTS AND PAULIES POLITICS & NEWS) – Our best hope of restoring rights, liberties and justice in America hinges upon a spiritual rebirth and reawakening. There really isn’t any hope of that happening without it. While thoughts and focused intentions are very powerful, the most powerful essence in the world is truth. NWO politicians who pose in phony prayer for photo ops are trying to steal the power of the people by tricking us into thinking their god is the only truth. But if we can all come together and focus on discovering the real truth, their false god and imagined power will disappear like a shadow from the light.

KRISTI KIRK (PATRIOTS AND PAULIES POLITICS & NEWS) – Did lip readers make out the First Lady’s comments correctly? All this for saying, “All this for a damn flag?“ Read My Lips: We will probably never know for certain what Michelle Obama was caught on video saying during the 9/11 ceremonies. As for the lip readers? It’s a case of he said she said.
