Calling All Sooner Staters – Help Us Live A Little More Liberally

By Josh Bolotsky

Hello Blue Oklahomans,

My name is Josh Bolotsky, and as National Program Associate for Living Liberally, I’d like to thank Kurt for giving us the opportunity to reach out to this community.

For those of you not familiar with it, Living liberally is an organization of over 245 chapters nationwide dedicated to creating communities around progressive politics. Through social networks and events, we promote political engagement for those not already involved, and facilitate collaboration among those for whom progressive activism is a lifestyle. Some of our projects include Drinking Liberally happy hours, Laughing Liberally comedy shows, Screening Liberally film series, Eating Liberally meals and Reading Liberally book clubs/tours.

Unfortunately, while Living Liberally is in 47 states, Oklahoma, along with Hawaii and North Dakota, is one of the remaining three states that still doesn’t have a Living Liberally chapter. We’ve made it our goal for our 5th anniversary, on May 29th, to correct that, and finally reach chapters in all 50 states.

Hosting any chapter is very easy, but Drinking Liberally, the oldest of the five, is particularly straightforward –  overall, it’s no more difficult than getting some friends together and meeting in a public space (usually a bar or restaurant) at least once a month to talk politics over a few drinks. If you want to add more – speakers, activism opportunities, promotion of local culture/elections – that’s great, but at the minimum, you just need to meet at a public venue and remind people via e-mail to attend once a month. That’s it – it’s really that easy. And usually, that’s all it takes at first for a new social community of self-identified to start growing, slowly at first, but faster and faster over time.

If you are interested, or just would like to learn more about starting a chapter, contact us at info@livingliberally.org. We’re happy to answer any questions, and excited to finally put Oklahoma on our map.

Keep on living liberally, in whatever you do. And please don’t make Howard Dean take back his words:

The 50-State Roundup

( – promoted by DocHoc)

This week’s roundup is made possible thanks to the major efforts of boadicea. Residing in one of those “W” states, I’m turning the tyranny of the alphabet on its head this week. Here’s the 50 State Blog Network Roundup–this week running from Wisconsin to Alabama!

Advertise on the 50 State Blog Network. Read the 50 State Blog Network Roundup F.A.Q.

Wisconsin
   Uppity Wisconsin discusses the disquieting implications of the US Attorney scandal on all prosecutions.

West Virginia
   WV Blue has Senator Rockefeller’s statement, and a translation from Capitulating Weasel to English.

Washington
   Washblog is taking on the question of media ownership in a pragmatic way by encouraging readers to support local community radio station, KSER. They share some fairly compelling reasons to do so.

Virginia
   Raising Kaine reports that a Red Storm is definitely not rising in online campaign fundraising.

Vermont
   Seems like almost everyone in the state of Vermont has been mentioned as a potential gubernatorial candidate. Green Mountain Daily tries to sort out wheat from chaff.

Utah
   Utah’s residential treatment programs: Eight dead kids and counting…

Texas
   Texas Kaos is keeping track of the numbnuttery of Texas legislators between sessions. They may need to add staff. Texas State Senator Kevin Eltife is concerned about a condom crisis at U Tyler. The crisis is that the university clinic is making condoms available to college students-who would never THINK about having sex without free condoms. Of course.

Texas
   Texas bloggers were vocally unhappy (as were a lot of other activists) when some members of the Democratic Legislative Caucus split to support powerhappy Speaker Tom Craddick. Primaries are afoot for many of the Iscariot Caucus, and some of the”Iscariot Caucus” are deciding to call it a day rather than face their constituents.

Tennessee
   Drug resistance staph is on the rise in Tennessee, Knoxviews reports.

South Dakota
   Badlands Blue takes a look at Why Cellulosic Ethanol is the Way to Go.

Rhode Island
   Apparently, nothing is too good for the walls of the Carcieri Administration in Rhode Island. Certainly not a few crushed pearls in the wall treatment.

Pennsylvania
   In a story whose headline says it all, Keystone Politics reports PA Senate moves to ban bonuses for legislative aides

Oregon
   Bill Bradbury, current Secy of State and former Senate nominee against Gordon Smith, lays out in this video from the Oregon Democratic Summit ’07 why Oregon doesn’t need a Red Senator in a Blue State.

Oklahoma
   Blue Oklahoma makes sure that John Sullivan’s vote against health care for kids is duly noted, even though he overlooked mentioning it in his latest constituent communication. An oversight, we’re sure Rep. Sullivan will appreciate having corrected.

Ohio
   And in a Rules are for OTHER People Doubleheader, Buckeye State Blog notes that Bob Latta gets smacked around by the normally very genteel (and non-partisan) folks at Project Vote Smart.

Ohio
   As Ohio Goes reports the latest episode of Ohio Republicans’ long running series “Rules are for OTHER People”, This ep takes place in Upper Arlington.

North Dakota
   When some right winger tries to tell you Ann Coulter doesn’t represent the Republican Party, ask them why North Dakota Public Service Commissioner Kevin Cramer calls Acid Annie one of his favorite people“. Ah, that’s some real heartland values, Kevin.

North Carolina
   Astroturf Rising in NC. Fortunately, Blue NC is on top of the developments.

New York
   Daily Gotham has some exiting news from Rensselaer County. Andrew C. White is running for local office. Let’s hear it for Stephentown!

New York
   As Rudy Guliani continues his campaign to be the Fearmonger in Chief, the Albany Project is on the story of Rudy and the Radios asking questions that deserve answers.

New Mexico
   In New Mexico, Democrats are trying hard to draft Tom Udall to run for the open Senate seat.

New Jersey
   The latest installment in Bush’s Occupation are noted by Blue Jersey. NJ National Guard Facing Largest Deployment since WW II.

New Hampshire
   Blue Hampshire takes a look at what may become an increasingly relevant question in a lackluster Republican presidential field. Who can beat Huckabee?

Nevada
   My Silver State reports that the Nevada Caucus date will stay where it is.

Nebraska
   As part of an ongoing discussion on the state of the Nebraska Democratic Party, the New Nebraska Network looks at registration and voting trends over a fair number of years.

Montana
   Left in the West is keeping an eye on FCC Commissioner Kevin Martin’s latest scheme to clear the way for more Clear Channel megalopolies. Fire up your dialing finger, and let your opinion be known.

Missouri
   Show Me Progress, meanwhile, is keeping an eye on Matt”Baby” Blunt’s financials. Seems that while he denies fundraising in the Governor’s Mansion, his campaign report tells a different story.

Missouri
   Fired Up Missouri takes the St Louis Post Dispatch to task for what should be an appalling ethical lapse-but is all too common. Letting a right-wing hatchetwoman opine as if she were a disinterested observer shouldn’t even be a close call, but apparently no worries for the P-D.

Mississippi
   Cottonmouth Blog follows the creative response of State Lege candidate Jim Payne to the mystery of the disappearing campaign signs. He’s incorporated it into his campaign ads. Check out the videos.

Minnesota
   Minnesota Campaign report has a two part (at this time) series with MN-02 candidate Steve Sarvi. Excellent work.

Michigan
   Could there be another Michigan government shutdown? The budget still isn’t done, and the clock is ticking.

Massachusetts
   Blue Mass Group has reassuring words for any Californians nervous that the Governator’s small steps toward protecting LGBT families threatens their own marital status. So, Let California Ring!

Maryland
   A Maryland state lawmaker decries the culture of secrecy surrounding political appointments in Montgomery County.

Maine
   Turn Maine Blue has the story of just how incompentent Lance Dutson to run an advertising campaign. (Hint, he not only can’t get it together to do a Google ad, he thinks nothing of trumpeting the fact.) Once again, reality out satires satire.

Louisiana
   LA-GOV: Jindal Proves He’s Got No Heart

Louisiana
   LA-GOV: Jindal campaign accepts hundreds of thousands in ethically and legally questionable contributions

Louisiana
   A Democrat refuses to apply the law equally to Republicans … only in Louisiana, kids!

Kentucky
   BlueGrassRoots is feeling the Yarmuth! love after the freshman Rep stood up for the Constitution. More and BETTER Democrats.

Indiana
   So, how stupid is the Indiana Republican Party? Stupid enough to send mail to South Bend from Indianapolis dissing that fair city. That’s several bales of stupid, for those of you keeping score at home.

Illinois
   Prairie State Blue is following the Kabuki theatre surrounding Dennis Hastert’s resignation, and what will happen after the Hokey Pokey antics are over, and IL-14 needs a new representative.

Idaho
   G43rd State Blues pulls a thread on the so-called Idaho Hall of Fame (newest inductee in the Wide Stance Wing, Sen Larry Craig). Leads to a few questions, including whether it’s not more properly a “Hall of Shame”.

Georgia
   GWelcome news over at Tondee’s Tavern as well. Josh Lanier is forming an exploratory committee for a run against Saxby Chambliss. Run, Josh, RUN.

Florida
   Good news out of South Florida. Fla Politics reports “No More Free Ride for South Florida Republicans”. Suh-weet.

Connecticut
   My Left Nutmeg has some local shenanigans to keep an eye on in Danbury. Seems there’s a lot of coincidence in Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton’s finances. A LOT of coincidence.

Colorado
   At Square State, they’ve got the skinny on when a civil rights initiative ain’t. When Ward Connerly decides to export some cranky California crazy to tamp down affirmative action,don’t just say no. Say”hell no”.

California
   Calitics is keeping an eye on what passes for healthcare reform in Schwarzenegger’s fevered brain. Still stinks. Bet you’re as surprised as we are.

Alabama
   Alabama’s 5 Republican Congressman voted against working families to support Bush’s veto of S-CHIP reauthorization. Alabama needs fewer Republican Congressmen.

The 50-State Roundup

Texas
When a judge wields the power of life and death and considers regular office hours more important than ensuring that power is, well, judicicious, then it’s time to impeach Judge Sharon Keller.
