CHOCTAW NATION OF OKLAHOMA
Announced As (EMPTY) PROMISE ZONE

{hat tip to Kevin, at Scribe of Slog, for this heads up:}

Hey, everybody, here comes the Feds!!
"I'm From the Government, And I'm Here To Help"


lovingly lifted from KFOR.com (OKC's channel 4 NBC) :

WASHINGTON – Barack Obama will discuss five proposed anti-poverty zones Thursday, including one here in Oklahoma.

At a White House event, San Antonio, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Southeastern Kentucky and 
the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma 
will be announced as the first five “Promise Zones.”
These areas are designed to create jobs and increase economic security by partnering local communities with business.

Honest Injun.

The Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma’s key strategies include:

Improving skills for tomorrow’s jobs, through workforce training for skilled trades and professionals and more rigorous summer and after-school programs.

Leveraging its role as the largest employer in southeastern Oklahoma to create a strong base for economic revitalization by working with partners, like Oklahoma State University, Eastern Oklahoma State College, and the Kiamichi Technology Center to improve workforce training for skilled trades and professionals, with a focus on providing nationally-recognized STEM certifications.

Investing in infrastructure that lays the foundation for economic growth, including water and sewer infrastructure; these infrastructure challenges have been identified as impediments to investment in an area with otherwise strong growth potential.
Improving educational outcomes by working across 85 school districts throughout the region to share data for continuous improvement, and bolster early literacy and parent support programs.

Pursuing economic diversification by utilizing natural, historic, and cultural resources to support growth, including evaluation of market capacity for local farmers’ markets, as well as implementation of technology-enhanced “traditional” farming and ranching, and large-scale greenhouses and specialized training in business plan development, marketing, and financing to support the development of women-owned businesses in the Promise Zone.

Lip Service.  The above four paragraphs detailing a progressive agenda for my area is sure to trim back the growing Conservative movement around here, Tea Parties have sprung up in Poteau, McAlester, Hugo and Durant Oklahoma.  

Like the phrase above, "... through workforce training for skilled trades and professionals and more rigorous summer and after-school programs."--

and "...as well as implementation of technology-enhanced “traditional” farming and ranching, and large-scale greenhouses and specialized training in business plan development, marketing, and financing to support the development of women-owned businesses in the Promise Zone."

WHUT?? Why can't they speak in regular English? 
Why the nebulous, Govspeak nonsense?

Zerobama better not ever come around here to bask in his accomplishment.

For one thing, he's not offering anything for us Okies that isn't already available.
And proposing tax credits to businesses to open here, is not as good as a simple reducing tax burdens.

But, here is the disturbing part of the article:

National Service:  Each Promise Zone will be provided five full-time AmeriCorps VISTA members to support their strategic plan.  These VISTAs will recruit and manage volunteers, and strengthen the capacity of Promise Zones to expand economic opportunity.

I intend to become a Vista volunteer... then report on the brainwashing here.  Wonder if I'll be assigned to get illegal aliens to register to vote Democrat?

UPDATE**
Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX. has spoken up about the TwilightPromise Zones:
"It's altogether fitting that President Obama is today talking about income inequality because income inequality has increased dramatically as a direct result of his economic policies. Out-of-control government spending, debt, taxes, and regulations have killed millions of jobs. Unfortunately, rather than stop Washington's job-killing policies, President Obama proposes yet more government spending and debt. People need jobs. All of America needs to be a real 'Promise Zone'--with reduced barriers to small businesses creating private-sector jobs--and we should start by repealing every word of Obamacare, building the Keystone pipeline, abolishing the IRS, and rolling back abusive regulations.”

You must realign the core strategy of your paradigm in order to fully leverage the holistic impact of the total diversity embodied by the out of the box thinking displayed by the current administration. You simply must re-calibrate your expectations to perceive the clear goals of the empowerment embodied in the statement. In order to move forward, your organic growth is a necessity in order to achieve the milestone wellness in this win-win strategy.

OMG, they got to Jeffro too!

Who do I contact to re-activate my "Get Offa My Lawn" party membership?

GOMLP's charter membership has migrated to the Tea Party, due to the fact the Tea Party -- in contrast to GOMLP leadership (that being me) -- is getting stuff done.

Oh, ande don't mind Jeffro. He's just practicing for when Skynet becomes self-aware.

Get the sign, an electrical fence, three or four dobermans and automatic weapons to fire at any trespassers.

Will that be enough to keep them out???
