S5:E2 (Stitt Fit - The Guest Educator E.O As A Way To Solve COVID)

This week on Across the Desk, Kit talks about Oklahoma Governor Stitt's E.O. on letting other State Departments foot the bill for education by allowing employees from those other Departments to be 'Guest Educators' while still being paid from the payroll of their respected Departments... It all has to do with the Republican plan for Education.. And it's a classic.

It is all going according to plan (evil laugh of Emperor Palpatine). The plan?? Page 6 of the Oklahoma Republican Party Platform… You didn’t think the current state of public education in Oklahoma was by accident now do you??? Eviscerating public education is the plan and it is a classic. Make public education so bad by hobbling it with unfunded mandates and poorly resourcing it that private, charter and home schools are the only viable option to a good education, and they also, "ah ha", don’t have to follow constitutional norms of things public institutions have to, like religious indoctrination for instance… Kill the public school system, strengthen the vitality of private, charter and home schooling... This in turn will save the tax payers $$$!!! How do you ask??? Well, not by controlling cost, that will go up... But by issuing parents vouchers, "ah-hem", School Choice Coupons. No, no, no, I mean Education Savings Accounts… See, these 'coupons', I mean ESA’s, can be used to buy your Timmy or Sally the education mommy and daddy can afford... That's right... What they can afford... Because you see the voucher, err, I mean ESA, won't cover the full cost of education. That's how we save the tax payers money!!!!! The parents will just have to suck it up and pay for each child's books, activity fees, school room supplies, and the 10-20% of tuition... Tim wants to play football?? Well, he'd better be able to finance that.. Art classes for Sally?? Mom can buy the supplies at Hobby Lobby!! And busing??? You will be able to purchase your very own personal bus pass!!! (each semester)… See?? What a utopia we will create!!!

Across the Desk - S4:E3 (James 'The Traitor' Lankford - Finding Credibility)

James Lankford and his 'friends' committed treason by trying to jettison our Republic for Autocracy a year ago...

We cannot forget that James Lankford and his 'friends' deserve to be in prison for their treason, not at the levers of government...

Across the Desk S4:E3 (James 'The Traitor' Lankford - Finding Credibility)

This was the 2nd most popular video of Season 4. Probably because knowing who the traitors are is really that important... Season 5 in two weeks...

Kit points out the obvious about James Lankford and the current situation he finds himself in.. On the one hand, the Left thinks he's a traitor for trying to jettison the Republic.. And the Right thinks he's a traitor for not being authoritarian enough.. The most damning evidence is a letter to constituents where he admits that he has "friends tell me to forget the rule of law and the constitution and just find a way to keep Trump as President".. It's in the episode...

Across the Desk S4:E17 (New Oklahoma Congressional Maps & The Art of the (R) Gerrymander)

On a previous episode of Across the Desk: The new map for U.S. House districts in Oklahoma finally came out for public view just before the vote on it and it's pretty much as you would have guessed. They kept Tulsa county pretty much in tact. But Oklahoma County? Split up into 3 of Oklahoma's 5 Districts. Gerrymandered? It just might be.

Across the Desk - S4:E3 (Oklahoma Sen. James 'The Traitor' Lankford - Finding Credibility)

On a previous episode of Across the Desk, Kit points out the obvious about James Lankford and the current situation he finds himself in. On the one hand, the Left thinks he's a traitor for trying to jettison the Republic. (Well, there's evidence to suggest just that! It's in the episode.) And the Right thinks he's a traitor for not being authoritarian enough because he couldn't go through with his planned soft coup. So what does James do? Get out in front of every platform he can to show how divisive, and petty he can be in a bid to be 'relevant'.
