Remembering the Positive Things About Oklahoma
If you spend enough time online in Oklahoma social media--Facebook groups, Reddit, etc... you would automatically assume that everyone in the Sooner State should be on anti-depressants. I suppose it's natural since playing the victim is social currency these days.
The best way to get attention online is to be upset about one thing or another. Sometimes the complaints are legit, other times it seems people are reaching a little too far.
Much like online reviews, it's the people who are disgruntled that speak the loudest and make mountains out of molehills. Honestly, look around online. The person upset with a product will write paragraphs about their negative experience whereas the satisfied customer will leave a 5-star rating completely blank.
The hottest topic for the last decade has been politics, and it has become so toxic and corrosive, I genuinely feel sorrow for anyone seeking out conversations about either side.
Even more sad, we've done it to ourselves. The farther one party moves to their side, the more the other party moves to counterbalance things. We're at a point in our history where nothing can get done because nobody can agree on anything. It's militant politics.
Instead of wasting your time and breath talking about it, focus that energy on things that are positive in our lives. Things that Oklahomans almost unanimously agree are great.
Here's the quick rundown that I'm sure will grow as your suggestions come in through the app.
