For Dana Murphy
Ideal qualities of a corporation commissioner wrapped up in one

BY MICHAEL D. BATES


http://www.urbantulsa.com/gyrobase/Content?oid=oid%3A25089
The commission regulates the public utilities that we depend upon to provide phone service and to light and heat our homes.
There are three corporation commissioners -- each serves a six-year term. Typically, we elect one corporation commissioner every two years, but this year due to Denise Bode's resignation, we have a special election in addition to the usual six-year rotation. The winner of the short-term race will finish Bode's term and go before voters again in 2010.
It's an unusual election in that the challenger has more on-the-job experience than the incumbent.
Dana Murphy served more than five years as an administrative law judge for the OCC, presiding over more than 5,000 cases, weighing evidence and testimony and making judgments, and acting as a gatekeeper and making recommendations on issues coming before the three commissioners.
Murphy earned her undergraduate degree in geology, and worked as a petroleum geologist in the oil patch for 10 years while putting herself through law school. She left the OCC to run for Corporation Commissioner in 2002, finishing first in the primary but falling short in the runoff. Since then, she's been working as an oil and gas attorney, staying current in the issues that take up most of the OCC's time.
By contrast, incumbent Jim Roth has been in the job for little more than a year, elevated by Gov. Brad Henry to his current post from the Oklahoma County Commission, which has nothing in common with the Oklahoma Corporation Commission beyond its initials. Prior to serving as a county commissioner, Roth was an assistant to the county clerk and a previous county commissioner. He has no expertise in the oil and gas industry.
What Roth does have is a disturbingly cozy relationship with Aubrey McClendon, the CEO and chairman of Chesapeake Energy, one of the companies regulated by the Oklahoma Corporation Commission as the largest producer of natural gas in Oklahoma. The Roth-McClendon connection has been extensively documented by muckraking Oklahoma City journalist Mike McCarville on his website at www.tmrcom.blogspot.com.
In 2005, as a county commissioner, Roth pushed for road and bridge improvements for a lightly traveled dead-end road leading to property owned by McClendon. McClendon gave the maximum contribution to Roth's 2006 re-election campaign.
Meanwhile, McClendon was running into some trouble with his basketball team, the Seattle Supersonics. According to a May 27, 2008, Seattle Times story by Jim Brunner, McClendon's 2004 donations to an anti-gay-marriage organization "didn't sit well in the Democrat-controlled Washington Legislature, which was then considering whether to fund the Sonics' Renton arena proposal."
In an e-mail to McClendon, which emerged in a lawsuit by the City of Seattle against McClendon and his fellow Sonics owners, Roth "offered to contact Seattle media to defend McClendon against accusations of being anti-gay."
Roth's letter appeared in the March 4, 2007, Seattle Times. It read in part:
"When I was elected in 2002, I became Oklahoma's first openly gay elected official. From the beginning, Clay [Bennett] and Aubrey [McClendon] initiated a genuine kindness and friendship toward my partner and me. They have publicly and consistently supported me, even pushing back when right-wing attacks have occurred. Their support is unconditional and has helped improve the overall climate for expanding tolerance here at home."
Setting aside the social issues involved in the story, it points to a friendship between Roth and McClendon sufficiently close that Roth should recuse himself when McClendon's interests are before the Commission. Instead, in a key decision, Roth sided with McClendon and against anyone who pays an electric bill in Oklahoma.
When Corporation Commissioner Denise Bode stepped down in 2007 to take a job with the McClendon-founded and funded American Clean Skies Foundation, Jim Roth was appointed to take her place, with the support of McClendon and former state Democratic Party chairman Pat Hall, now a Chesapeake lobbyist.
One of Roth's first decisions involved a pre-application by AEP-PSO and OG+E, the two largest electric utilities in Oklahoma, to build a new coal-fired power plant at Red Rock. OCC administrative law judge Maribeth Snapp recommended approval, writing that the high-tech plant would save ratepayers over a billion dollars in utility bills over the life of the plant over a comparable natural gas plant.
McClendon's Chesapeake ran a high-profile campaign against coal plants here and in surrounding states, including TV ads proclaiming that "coal is filthy."
Given Roth's close friendship with McClendon, he should have recused himself from the vote. Instead, taking his cue from McClendon, Roth voted against the Red Rock pre-approval, killing the plant. The move makes Oklahoma's electricity consumers more dependent for upon natural gas from Chesapeake and other suppliers.
And guess who's co-chairing Roth's 2008 campaign? Aubrey McClendon. According to the daily paper, McClendon's employees and executives at Chesapeake have contributed over $100,000 to Roth's campaign. McClendon is said to have raised over a half-million dollars for Roth.
In years past, the Oklahoma Corporation Commission has been plagued by favoritism and outright corruption. In 1994, former Commissioner Bob Hopkins, a Democrat, was sentenced to 33 months in federal prison for bribery.
The OCC began to change for the better when Bob Anthony, a Republican, was elected in 1988. When regulated entities offered bribes to Anthony, he wore a wire to gather evidence for the Feds.
Oklahoma voters need commissioners who, like Anthony, aren't entangled with regulated corporations, commissioners who will put the interests of all Oklahomans ahead of the machinations of special interests. Oklahoma needs Dana Murphy.
I've known Dana since 2002 and have seen firsthand the energy she puts into any job she undertakes and the grace with which she handles pressure and political attacks. In a political world filled with self-promoters, Dana Murphy is a rare example of humility and Christian servanthood. Add her character to her years of service with the OCC and her thorough grounding in oil and gas exploration, and you have the ideal qualities of a corporation commissioner wrapped up in one candidate.
Whether you're a liberal who worries about corporate influence over regulators or a conservative who wants a corporation commissioner who shares your values and will be fair to business, (all businesses, not just special friends) or just an Oklahoman who wants someone with knowledge, experience, and character ruling on utility rates and oil and gas matters, the clear choice is Dana Murphy.

Define Marriage Between A Man & A Woman

Proposition 8 in California is a hot bed for the Homosexuals agenda. The liberals are trying to get no votes out on Proposition 8. Proposition 8 is a ballot question in CA that will amend the state constitution to define marriage and between a man and a woman. Unions are running TV ads making all kinds of claims about how this was discriminatory, intruding on civic rights, etc. etc. The ads included a list of organizations and newspapers that oppose the amendment. Featured prominently was the CA Teachers Association! Should the teacher’s dues be used this way? Union dues shouldn't be funding the opposition to this ballot question. Below is a list of other Labor Organizations opposing Prop 8 on their website:

About 200K Ohio voters have records discrepancies

CINCINNATI (AP) - Close to one in every three newly registered Ohio voters will end up on court-ordered lists being sent to county election boards because they have some discrepancy in their records, an elections spokesman said Wednesday.
Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner estimated that an initial review found that about 200,000 newly registered voters reported information that did not match motor-vehicle or Social Security records, Brunner spokesman Kevin Kidder said. Some discrepancies could be as simple as a misspelling, while others could be more significant.
The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati sided with the Ohio Republican Party on Tuesday and ordered Brunner to set up a system that provides those names to county elections boards. The GOP contends the information will help prevent fraud.
"Things already are in motion to comply," Kidder said. "We're working to establish these processes on how we can make this work. The computer work actually began last week."
About 666,000 Ohioans have registered to vote since January.
Brunner previously cross-checked new-voter registrations with databases run by the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicle and the Social Security Administration and made the results available online, but the 6th Circuit said the information was not accessible in a way that would help county election boards ferret out mismatches.
Brunner, a Democrat, told The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer on Wednesday that she is concerned the court decision is a veiled attempt at disenfranchising voters. Brunner said she'll urge counties not to force these people to use provisional ballots.
The court gave Brunner until Friday to get election boards the information but it was unclear whether that deadline would be met. The court set no penalty for missing the deadline.
County election officials were trying to determine Wednesday how they will respond once they get the information.
"I'm very concerned with these new requirements as we get closer to Election Day," said Steve Harsman, director of the Montgomery County Board of Elections in Dayton. He said his staff already is working 16 hours a day, seven days a week.
"It's clearly going to have an impact in regard to resources we have to expend to resolve discrepancies," said Jeff Hastings, chairman of the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections in Cleveland.
"We've had about 100,000 (registrations) since January and of those about 34,000 since the primary. We will do whatever is required of us."
Also Wednesday, the Ohio Republican Party said it has filed public records requests with all 88 counties for copies of forms submitted by newly registered voters, especially those who registered and cast an absentee ballot on the same day during a one-week window earlier this month.
Brunner has said that 13,141 Ohioans registered and voted immediately during the window.
"We've seen reports of fraudulent registrations, and we want to see those forms first-hand," said Jason Mauk, the state GOP's executive director.

ACORN: A Repeat-Offender

By: Congressman Tom Cole



Much is being made in the news lately of the uncovering of massive, multi-state, multi- election cycle voter fraud, perpetrated by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, also known as ACORN. In just the past year and a half ACORN claims to have registered 1.3 million new voters. Normally this would be a good thing - we should encourage greater participation in our political system. Unfortunately, it is becoming clear that ACORN was operating a massive scam by registering tens of thousands of phony voters.



In Nevada it has been revealed that ACORN hired inmates in the state penitentiary to register new voters. They registered the Dallas Cowboys to vote in Nevada. Another Nevada canvasser was caught filling out voter registration forms using names and addresses copied out of the telephone book. Needless to say, this scandal is not confined to Nevada. Election officials in Ohio, Missouri, Michigan, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and New Mexico have all uncovered similar instances of fraud. A state prosecutor in Washington State put it very well when he described the activities of ACORN as "an act of vandalism against our voter rolls."



Voting in free and fair elections is the very foundation of our system of self governance. Who can ever forget the remarkable election of 2000 when the candidate who actually received fewer popular votes won the election? This was after an extended recount - in the state his bother served as Governor - and a 5-4 Supreme Court decision. Yet at no time did we see tanks rolling through the streets. There was no martial law. Americans tuned into the Tonight Show every night to see Jay Leno cracking jokes about hanging chads. This was possible because Americans had faith that despite the problems we had in that election, the process was fundamentally honest and fair. Organizations like ACORN undermine that trust and as a result they undermine the very political stability of the United States.



And as if this treachery weren't enough, ACORN does this with millions of dollars of taxpayer money. You see, ACORN played another role in the dominant news item of the past several weeks - the collapse of the sub-prime mortgage industry. For years ACORN has used intimidation tactics to force banks to make loans to people who couldn't afford to pay them back. And they extorted millions of dollars from Congress under the auspices of the Community Redevelopment Act by arranging to have Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac buy up the risky mortgages on the secondary market.



Remarkably, in the recently passed Economic Recovery Act, the liberals in Congress attempted to put even more money into the pockets of their cronies at ACORN. Fortunately, the Republicans put their foot down and all additional funding for ACORN was stripped from the bill. I'd call that a good start, but now we need to get to work making sure the rest of their taxpayer funding is stripped away.



Unfortunately, it does not appear to be just a few bad apples at ACORN. The entire organization has a considerable record of manipulation and fraud. In June the Consumers Rights League published a series of internal documents from the organization that reveal ACORN has comingled political money and taxpayer funds. In order to prevent future taxpayer rip-offs and blatant voter fraud, the Community Reinvestment Act needs to be overhauled, and ACORN should never again receive a penny of taxpayer money. Furthermore, those responsible for the fraudulent registrations must be thoroughly investigated, and if found guilty, punished to the full extent of the law.

Obama Will Stand With Muslims





Why is all of this going unnoticed by the media???? They send 1000 reporters to Alaska to dig up something on Sarah palin and they have this right in front of their eyes!



From Dreams of My Father:'I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.'

From Dreams of My Father : 'I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race.'

From Dreams of My Father:'There was something about him that made me wary, a little too sure of himself, maybe. And white.'

From Dreams of My Father: 'It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.'

From Dreams of My Father:'I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my father's image, the black man, son of Africa , that I'd packed all the attributes I sought in myself , the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela.'

And FINALLY the Most Damning one of ALL of them!!!

From Audacity of Hope:'I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.'

Sad Obituary Please Read, Very Sad

'Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, 'Common Sense', who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair; and maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouth wash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an Aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became
pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.Common Sense took a beating when you
couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realise that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly
awarded a huge settlement .

Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust. His wife, Discretion, his daughter, Responsibility, his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights; I Want It Now; Someone Else Is To Blame; I'm A Victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realised he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing
