Oh. Sure. And the two days the racist name-calling response was up caused you no bitter response?

SMH. You should just publish the bus route.

Republicans best bet now is the Great Plains or the Deep South. Maybe up in Montana as well or the Dakotas. The most already-big republican cities are probably Phoenix, Jacksonville, and Columbus.

Don’t be such a snowflake and so easily offended, hun.

Its not the right that I take issue with, its the religious right.
This is true. I’m a proud Catholic Christian, but separation from church and state is very much needed.

Check out this map of election results by precinct. Really quite fascinating.

Alamo Heights and Olmos Park aren't anywhere near the most conservative areas of Texas. And they aren't very urban, even though they're near downtown. It's hard to think of anything more suburban than those cities.

Interesting that Terrell Hills is quite a bit more red. Lots of military retirees, maybe?

Alamo Heights - 48 Trump/44 Clinton
Olmos Park - 51/43
Terrell Hills - 67/28
Fort Sam - 45/41
The Quarry - 99/0 (total of four votes) :-)

I don't know the Memorial Villages area, but the map seems to indicate that the area is mostly light/medium pink with a few patches of light blue.

Those are all wealthy suburbs, and that's the exact demographic that is fleeing the Republican party. Do you think those folks care about bathroom bills? No. They want good schools and property tax relief.
