All of Oklahoma's congressional delegation except Sen. Tom Coburn have joined forces to override Bush's veto of a $23 billion water resources bill.
Sen Jim Inhofe is even leading the effort to override the veto.
Coburn was the only Oklahoman to vote against the Water Resources Development Act on final passage.
Apparently, Coburn does not drink water.

Why does Oklahoma have so many dangerous bigots and why does every last one of them insist on being in politics?

Tulsa Mayor Kathy Taylor and Police Chief Ron Palmer
The proponents of this new tax want the gathering spots to be privately owned, so they can order the public to leave without being required to have a valid reason. (like Mall Protesters)
Their tax of choice is a sales tax with no provision to exempt groceries.
Vision 2025 was supposed to have included river development. With so much money being flashed around by the "yes" faction, one must question whom will this benefit.

English-Only Amendment Would Endanger Lives, Discriminate and Create ‘Second-Class’ Citizens, ACLU says (6/7/2007)
WASHINGTON, DC -The ACLU today voiced its strong opposition to an amendment passed late last night to the Senate immigration bill that would declare English the national language and severely restrict the government’s ability to communicate with citizens, residents and visitors. The ACLU praised the passage of a competing amendment that would recognize English as the "common and unifying" language of the United States without restricting access to crucial federal information or declaring it the official language.
The passage of the two irreconcilable Senate amendments will have to be worked out in conference, with one of the amendments likely to be abandoned. Amendment 1384, offered by Senator Ken Salazar (D-CO), acknowledges the important role of English in the United States without endangering the access of non-English speaking Americans to vital information from their government. Amendment 1151, offered by Senator James Inhofe (R-OK), would prevent the federal government from providing any information in languages other than English and restrict constitutionally protected speech between government officials and the Americans they serve.
"The Inhofe English-Only amendment would punish citizens who need access to medical care and disaster relief, and it would raise new barriers to learning English," said Caroline Fredrickson, director of the ACLU Washington Legislative Office. "This country needs better access to English education for limited speakers, not a mute button on government access for millions of Americans."
The Inhofe amendment would deny limited-English proficient (LEP) Americans access to basic government information such as instructions on how to pay taxes, which would inadvertently promote tax evasion. It would limit information about federal policies and government services in languages other than English. It would bar instructions about workplace safety, natural disasters and vaccinations in a form that all Americans can understand. It would also prevent LEP patients, particularly the elderly, from communicating with their doctors. It is a dangerous amendment that places every American at risk.
"The Inhofe Amendment does nothing to promote the use of English," said James Thomas Tucker, ACLU Policy Counsel and author of a 2006 study of ESL waiting times. "It does not reduce the long waiting lists for English classes or educational discrimination against Americans with limited English. Instead, it keeps people who want to learn English from speaking it. It panders to English-only groups seeking to exclude millions of language minorities from American society."

Signorille: Now what about Snow White? That teaches sexuality doesn't it. She kisses the prince and at one point the prince isn't even human; he's a frog.
Rep. Kern: The difference there is that that is still in the heterosexual lifestyle.
