  • ROFL the first tax takes effect July 1 and the next Aug . and you cannot roll back what has already been taken . so the dummies that presented this case sounded like a bunch of clutches standing in front of the justices , they stumbled all over them selves , were not even prepared and from where I was seated , looked like a bunch of fools . so teachers get their raises , we get higher taxes , Mary Fallin saves her hotel and motel from paying higher costs ( taxes ) and everything is just lovely in the state .Oh and Coborn your team was a disgrace.
