You’re not the only one spending fewer summer weekends watching other people get married—but don’t worry, the weddings you’re still invited to might feel a little more special these days.

Fewer Americans are getting married, and the ones who still are have scaled back their weddings. Their nuptials are becoming smaller, though not necessarily cheaper, affairs.

LET THE CAMPAIGN SEASON BEGINU.S. DISTRICT 2 HAS A CHALLENGER

THE WATCHMAN
  Ladies and Gentlemen you are actually going to have an opportunity to place a man that we feel shows the epitome of integrity into office in 2018. We are well aware that there is a distinguished Veteran of the Army who was in command of the unit that captured Saddam Hussein. A good plumber and businessman don’t always make a good politician. The voters in U.S. House District 2 in Oklahoma are going to have that chance. You’ll have the chance to vote for an individual who to date has received not one single campaign donation from a political action committee or large business to one like Representative Mullin who tried to collect and spend campaign funds before he ever filed to run for his 4th term.
 

TULSA REPUBLICAN REPRESENTATIVE
BETRAYS THE PARTY 
AND 
SUPPORTS A DEMOCRAT IN AN ELECTION IN OKLAHOMA CITY
By the Watchman
In an article dated December 20, 2016 this article was posted on the internet. MuskogeePolitico.com: RINO Alert: HD70 Rep. Carol Bush shows true colors. There is little doubt that this article proved to be true. In fact she has proven to be more than a RINO, she is in fact an undocumented Democrat. She was recommended to run for the office by a Democrat and now she is out campaigning for Democrats. We must ask, why did you do this Tulsa? A failed surf shop operator in Tulsa is now your representative. Unbelievable.
