I am sorry but we had to get Scott Pruit out of Oklahoma.

So the rest of the world has to suffer for Oklahoma's sins, beams?

Maybe I'm just hopelessly cynical, but I can't help but have the feeling that not only is the Bible involved here, but also love of money. Doesn't the Bible also have something to say about this? Maybe 1 Timothy 6:10 was smuggled in by the Devil. Or Karl Marx.

oh yeah Mammon is behind all of this, you should see what Oklahoma is dealing with right now, basically we have a huge short fall because the oil industries got our super republican government to agree to pretty much eliminate the oil production tax, so to offset this our governor is suggesting to increase the taxes on cigarettes and on buying gas, luckily there are enough sane members to block this from happening but this is all happening in a special session so thus costing us even more money.

Then there is stuff like this:

Cupiditas radix malorum est. Greed is not the root of all evil, but it's probably involved in most.
