The Okies are standing up

Quick little read. Scroll down below the video. http://www.newsok.com/house-bypasses...rticle/3366762

Our government needs our help, they have an addiction. Our government is addicted to our money. Since they always have our best interest at heart it's time we return the favor. We need to have an intervention, for the governments own good of course. It's just irresponsible for us to let people with a known money addiction continue to handle our money. Lets have an intervention now so we can help these sick individuals.

I love it. They just bypassed the governor completely. True "statesmen"!

Dunno how the veto process works in Oklahoma, but vetoes can be overridden. When something goes back to the floor, they just have to have a higher "yes" count.

Actually, it looked like they were passing a second measure that would sidestep the Gov. Nowhere did it say they were working to override the veto.
