They wanted to secede years ago. If there was any truth to this claim, then I would whole-heartedly agree!

"They" = a group of people? a state? part of a state? part of a country?

Years ago = LTPF list of centuries/decades please?

True story? Fictional? FYOI? FSEI?

Is it some sort of alternate history story? Like where they have a fiction book which depicts a society where the South won the Civil War and now it's 1915 and the CSA and USA are fighting World War I on an American Front? (That's just an example, not a guess, though if it's close that's nice too)

Is part of Oklahoma trying to secede from the rest of the state? Yep, ~the big babies!~ Like the Panhandle? oh, that's true, too -- but not in this story. Or a certain county or counties? To keep this easy, assume no.

It actually is a book, or rather three books within a series: Timeline-191 by Harry Turtledove. The WWI books are the second, third, and fourth in the series. I believe there's about 16 books total.

Oklahoma City? Tulsa? This one! Norman? Stillwater?
(And I will have to admit that I have never heard of a few of the cities on Greg's list. Wow!)

RECAP:
Tulsa is a city that often threatens to secede from Oklahoma when they they don't like the decisions made in the state capital of Oklahoma City. (Normal political stuff...whatever!)

Now ponder this: If there was any truth to this claim, then I would whole-heartedly agree that Tulsa needs to leave.

Hint: The claim is not true -and I don't really think that Tulsa should secede. Delve into "who" and "what". "Why" will be harder to explain...

Is politics related to the "secession"? Well yes - but the first sentence of the puzzle statement was crafted to lead you to "Tulsa". So now we need lateral questions related to my hint.

Shez:
was the claim made publicly? yes-ish in writing? yes e newspaper? on TV? in a vote? No to the rest...however the news media did report about it on TV and newspapers.

is the claim about being ignored? about breaking the law? about corruption? None of these - likely the same FA.

Shez:

Balin:
If not that, another social networking site? Myspace? Twitter? This is it!

RECAP:
Poor Tulsa...someone made a claim about them.
If there could be any truth to this claim, then I would whole-heartedly agree that Tulsa needs to leave the state of Oklahoma - or the whole USA perhaps(?)

Find "who" and "what".

Hint: My interpretation as to "why" the claim was made is somewhere above but has gone unquestioned.

Was the claim made in all seriousness? Tongue-in-cheek?

Claimer: a comedian? A politician?

was it a comment on the people of Tulsa? on their intelligence or integrity or some other personal quality?

or something they were supposed to have done?

or the way other people in Oklahoma felt about them?

was the claim about something which had happened in the past?

Another hint: The title is a reference to an ad campaign from the '80s.

Drugs relevant? Yes, in my opinion, it explains why the claim was made.

Recap:
"Someone" wrote "something" on Twitter about the city of Tulsa. It really couldn't be true - probably just ramblings from a brain on drugs.

Ask questions about the "someone"...and I will put this poor puzzle out of it's misery.

No - it's more of a non sequitur. Charlie Sheen, with his rants, just popped into my head after typing the first question.

Balin:
The "someone" - someone you know? Charlie Sheen? yes! Good job!

Spoiler:
By now I am sure that everyone has heard about Charlie Sheen's explosive outbursts. On Twitter, Sheen has over 3 million followers - but he only follows just over 30 people. One of those people is an average guy from Tulsa, OK. Read the story here.
Tulsa World

Sheen's response: "I invented Tulsa, OK ... in my sleep."
My response: Boy, if that's true, then I will support Tulsa's desire to secede and create their own state. Goodbye, Tulsa!

Thanks to all who stuck with the puzzle...Balin!
