    President to create 5 new vote buying zones

    I guess Jesse Jackson is not too happy that Chicago isn't one of them. Chicago is in the bag, no need for a spendy "Promise Zone" there, save the cash where you can firm up or get new votes. We are getting one of them here in the deep red state of Oklahoma.

    Oklahoma is already a Marxist republic anyway with all the agricultural subsidies. I wonder if Oklahomans are all Catholics.

    Philadelphia could use it, for sure.

    I don't think there's any amount of money that could make up for having to live in Oklahoma, personally. I say just keep paying them more as long as it keeps them all there.

    Here comes a wave of code enforcement agents to throw everyone out of their homes, just trying to help!

    The "Promise Zone" in Oklahoma is in the Choctaw Nation. So damned if all of them aren't in Democratic or potentially Democratic constituencies.

    Is that why it's a deep red State. They're all closet communists with their hands deep in the Governments pockets?

    I'm not sure about all the agricultural subsidies, we have oil and a 9% sales tax that pays for a lot of stuff. When the great recession hit here in Tulsa the mayor turned off many of the city lights and laid off 150 police to avoid going over budget. It is a mostly common sense state. Of 8 major cities that I have lived in Tulsa is my favorite by far. Very business friendly, not a lot of stupid things like one might find in California.
