Tuition has increased nearly every year. They also promised they wouldn't advertise if passed but that's all they do now is advertise.


Jo,
Louisiana promised us the same thing. All the profits would go to Education.
Educated you, didn't it?

Down here they're dry because of the baptist. But go to the liquor store in the next county and you'll see half the members of the baptist church. Go to the county line for liquor......go to the state line to gamble.

Kinda the same here. The guys that own the liquor stores on bordering counties fund keeping dry and use the churches for their mouth piece.

Isn't that the truth. I think the lottery is the worst thing our state ever did and view it as exploitation of the poor.

Welcome to Oklahoma. If you consider the 3.2 law, the entire state is dry. I really do live in a DRY county, surrounded by dry counties........except for Oklahoma which is my neighbor. I grew up drinking that flavored. I didn't know what beer was until I graduated and started traveling.

Spent the night in Ft. Smith years ago. Ft. Smith was wet and convenience stores were full of beer but it was Sunday and selling it was illegal. Went across the bridge into Oklahoma and there was a liquor store just on their side that was huge. Must have been a hundred cars there and almost all had Arkansas license plates. :lol:
