    That is great for people that live in Highland Park where it is not unheard of for houses to sell for millions of dollars.

    (school districts throughout Texas got some surprising news Monday: $831 million of federal aid tied up for months in a high-profile battle between Gov. Rick Perry and Democratic Rep. Lloyd Doggett of Austin is now available to retain and hire teachers. )

    Maybe with all that fed dough they will make it up to 49,th in high school diplomas.Lets hope so.

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    In other news, McDonalds' has discovered that Burger King's whopper is not as delicious as a Big Mac.


    Rasmussen screens for likely voters. likely voters are more likely to be Republican... but they are also more likely to, well, vote.

    It's not really a debatable. In the last election cycle Rasmussen was the least accurate of the major polling firms and had the largest pro-Republican bias.

    thanks again for showing how inaccurate you are and how partisan you are. Don't you get tired of being wrong?

    Looks to me like liberals got their poll rankings reversed, Rasmussen was the best in the last election cycle.

    Let's hope so? Why do you care? Texans have no problem having jokes made about it and people like you staying out. The bad news that comes from the massive population growth in TX is that more liberals are infiltrating the state and begin trying to convert the state into the failed state they moved from. Wonder what it is that makes liberals so loyal to their failed ideology?

    Or for people that live in any school district in the state. Where do you think property taxes from those districts go? Do you really think pouring more money into the education system in this country is the answer? You spend way too much time buying the rhetoric from the left and never doing any research. Didn't TX just balance a two year budget without raising taxes? Didn't TX just create almost 30% of the private sector jobs created in July?

    I know it really is hard for you to admit it, but TX is in very good shape vs. the rest of the country. You should get out more.

    What is your point? I stated that the FEDERAL mandate was a republican IDEA advocated by groups including the Heritage Foundation. (did you read the article?) I wasn't talking about bills, I was talking about how readily Regressives run away from their own ideas (the few they actually have).

    Your link is from 2008 -- NOT the last election cycle. Don't you ever get tired of being dishonest?

    Rasmussen's rightward lurch is a fairly recent phenomenon.
