    You're confusing me. Why did you say that you want multiple urban centers chained together into single districts? That's gerrymandering.

These areas are either being isolated and chained together, or spliced up in Republican gerrymandering. Democratic gerrymandering is an exception, and in Maryland's case it's produced 1 extra dem representative. Republican State gerrymandering has produced nearly 10 extra republican reps from Texas and Wisconsin alone.
    This is the post I was referring to. Perhaps we're misunderstanding each other. I'm saying that metro areas shouldn't be split up to create more Dem districts. Each metro area should stay together within a cohesive district or split into two districts if it's big enough.

    A longtime Sunday school teacher, Butt said she thought students in middle school weren't able to assess or analyze information about religion, or other subjects, in the same way as a high school student. She never said why that was something to curtail when it came to teaching anything related to religion.

    "Junior high is not the time that children are doing the most analysis," Butt said. "Insecurity is in junior high a lot of times, and students are not able to differentiate a lot of things they are taught."

    No Tennessee public school course could include anything deemed "religious doctrine" unless the course is taught in 10th, 11th or 12th grade if a newly proposed bill becomes law.
    Sounds like a War on Christmas to me !

    Ryan basically told the Tea Party to sit down and shut the fuck up and elect him Speaker with zero dissent. Good luck with that. Tea Party can't elect one of their own, but can deny Ryan's coronation. Don't think the Tea Party or Ryan will back down, so they'll be back to square one.

    Gov. Sam Brownback in deep hole with Kansans

    Only 18 percent of state residents said they were “very” or “somewhat satisfied” with GOP Gov. Sam Brownback.
    ...

    Bob Beatty, a political scientist at Washburn University, told the Topeka Capital-Journal that Brownback’s poll numbers were “epic.

    “This could be some of the lowest approval ratings of any Kansas governor in history,” he said.

    The idea that the GOP would be less dysfunctional with more power is baffling.

    I don't know man. I'm sure they always feel more comfortable when the black guy leaves their house. After they've finished their inventory of course.
