Going to the Polls today in Tulsa. These are my endorsements:
NO on Proposition 1: It allows the city to come in a cut your grass if they consider it a nuisance without notice. I’m taking a libertarian stance on this one. There at least needs to be a notice if they’re going to change the landscaping
of your property.
YES on Proposition 2: just updates the system so that city council members can receive notice of special meetings by email instead of by hand
NO on Proposition 3: gives city council more power to declare emergencies outside of established ordinances for such declarations. Where do these people come off? Oh no somebody is peeing on the golden driller, call out the SWAT team. Not that it’s that extreme but it gives the city council more power to be above the law.
NO on Proposition 4: It moves the city elections from November to August. This seems like an attempt to involve less citizens in politics. People vote in fucking November. Enough citizens are not involved in elections. Proposition 4 sucks.
NO on Proposition 5: It gives too much power to the mayor to appoint people on the redistricting committee. Currently the power is distributed equally in the political parties to appoint representatives. They claim this will “take the politics out” which is the first sign of bullshit. Redistricting is as political as it gets. A
Republican mayor will appoint blue dog democrats to the committee, and poor neighborhoods will be further shoved out of city politics, in my opinion.
NO on Proposition 6: It is designed to give the police more political power in city government by doing away with restrictions on allowing city employees to be part of political campaigns. This is the same police force that a few years ago allowed the sheriffs drinkin’ buddy to run around with a gun and play cop until he murdered a guy. Fuck you
smell real food with friends not a picture of supper
smell real sex, dirty awkward funny risky wild messy dangerous, not porn
smell live shows, see if the band can make it or if they’re just showing insecurity, go deaf, snort blow off the toilet in the bathroom, not recorded music
hike in the woods and smell wild animal shit, feel your legs hurt, step on a snake, deal with a bear, not nature shows
smell sweat and feel the fist on your face, feel the pain of a loose tooth, taste the blood, not internet flame wars
remember how she smells when she looks at you and loves you, not texting lovely thoughts from a faraway stranger
say it to their face, feel how they feel when you say it, not vague cunty vaguebooking
don’t be a fucking coward, he said to himself
