I am tired of their pollution. Democrats and Republicans; both bozos WASTING money during a recession to tell us they are soooo virtuous. If you are so virtuous give your extra cash to poor people who are getting laid off. Oh By the way Tom Cole, you voted for War and WASTED 1.2 TRILLION OF TAX PAYER MONEY ON TWO FUTILE WARS. How the hell do you explain that when you pretend to be a bloody Fiscally conservative Republican? YOU VOTED FOR THE BANK BAIL OUT UNDER BUSH. YOU VOTED FOR WAR AND SPENDING WHILE WE CUT TAXES FOR THE RICH. BUSH TAX CUTS CONSISTED 48% OF THE MASSIVE DEFICIT BUSH RAN UP BY squandering the Clinton era surplus. HOW THE HELL DO YOU and the rest of you sanctimonious REpublicans claim to be conservative if you cannot tell us how you cut off funding for policemen, teachers and other blue collar Americans while spending on CREDIT FOR WAR? ANSWER LOGICALLY COLE AND EVEN YOU COBURN PLEASE. TELL US HOW THE HELL DID YOU PAY 1.2 TRILLION FOR WAR WHILE CUTTING TAXES AND ADDING TO THE MASSIVE DEFICITS UNDER BUSH?
Oh dont worry you will still win because how dumb and ignorant our Okie voters are because they will NEVER examine FACTS and DATA... GOd bless the ignorant dumb voters of our great state for getting fooled. HOW DO YOU AND HOW DID BUSH PAY FOR 2 WARS THAT ARe now in their 10th years? Hello Fallin, Cole and Coburn? Your helped ruin this nation.

WHO PAID FOR THE UNFUNDED PRESCRIPTION DRUG MANDATE UNDER BUSH? WHO VOTED FOR BANK BAILOUTS FOR CORRUPT RICH BANKS WHO PLUNDERED OUR WEALTH? WHO BLOCKED THE REFORM BILL TODAY TO MAKE CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM A REALITY SO WE CAN HAVE TRANSPARENCY ON WHO IS PROSTITUTING THEMSELVES TO BIG MONEY BUSINESS or LIBERAL UNIONS? SHAME ON YOU ALL.

Why did you Republicans BLOCK Finance reform today? Because you want the millions of dollars coming into your filthy rich hands? What would Jesus think of you Cole and Coburn? What did he do when he raided the temple at Pharisees? He did not kick out blacks, or moslems, or poor people or gays. He kicked out Money Lenders, Cattle buyers and Dove sellers all symbols of avarice. Thanks COLE for being such a support of WASTE and oh Thanks Fallin too for selling your vote for Banks.

OKC needs to ask for volunteers from both senior citizen groups and local businesses along main roads. Provide them with training to ID right of way, make this training available on line. Issue all volunteers an ID card from the city and assign them a street corner or two or a small secion of road to patrol. If they see campaign signs that are placed incorrectly, the volunteers remove them and throw them away. There should be enough volunteers between senior citizens and business owners and managers that are tired of the illegal clutter that are willing to remove signs in a area near their where they live or work. Campaigns will soon get the idean and stop placing the signs incorrectly. Problem solved.

This looks like a normal government concern, let worry about signs being along the road way,while we have people driving 80 on the Heifer parkway, simple to me tell the candidates they have X amount of time to clean them up after the election ones not picked up buy them then city and charge them for it

Ok, I don't get it. This whole story talks about how candidates are actually breaking the law by putting all these signs out. They talk about how they don't have the manpower to remove them and issue a challenge to candidates to clean up their mess.

How about citing the candidates?? Yeah, I know it's crazy but write the tickets. There's more evidence here than any other crime being committed in the state. Why aren't the candidates being cited? If it were anyone else the city would jump at the chance to write a ticket and get that income.

Absolute crap..a perfect example of elitism.

P.S. I'm sick of having to pull blindly into traffic because some idiot campaign worker blocked the view with a sign. Maybe when someone is killed and the family sues there will be some action.

Yes indeed. But now we have an experienced, qualified, astute and fiscally conservative president and Congress who will balance the budget and not run us into still deeper debt. Now that we have a leader with vast experience in the military, in business, and foreign affairs, and who will secure our national security and preserve the individual freedoms we all enjoy, we're in good shape. Thank goodness he understands about not raising taxes in a recession, encourages incentives, not sanctions, in promoting buisness growth, and believes in minimal government control over things like private enterprise (i.e. auto industry, banking, health care, insurance, etc.) Yessir, I'm convinced we can all relax now knowing we're in good hands. Thanks for the great comment.

The City Counsel is not to smart. They say they don't have the resources. But they do. It's called Police Dept. There cars have big trunks. Fire Depart. They can grab a few. Utility crew (ie Line Maintenance) they carry trash bags on there trucks. Make them assist and you won't have a sign problem.

I think the 2nd day after election, local workers go around and pick up any remaining signs, then the campaigns get fined $25.00 per sign to offset the cost of having the city workers take time out of their regular duties to do that. That way the problem pays for itself, plus whatever fines for having any signs in the wrong place.

If they break the law, why do we want them making laws for us?
