Redistricting cause for anger
Change could make Texas a one-party state

Texas Democrats are angry, and they have a right to be. Republicans have only one more step to take before stealing as many as six congressional seats after a federal court upheld their maniacal redistricting plan. The new map represents a severe misuse of power that has the potential to make Texas a one-party state.

As you may recall, Democrats did their best to stop redistricting, twice leaving the state rather than allowing the required quorum to vote on what was a Republican attempt to solidify a power-base that would last decades. They were harassed for this decision, when in fact they were acting in what they thought was the best interest of their constituents.

Anxious, girls? Take initiative!

And waiting.
And waiting some more.

Horrible isn’t it?
Waiting is unbearable, which is why I hate it.

What’s worse is sitting by the phone on a Saturday night waiting for a guy to call. I can’t think of anything more agonizing — or embarrassing for that matter.
