Is Indiana Bluer than California?

It may be sunny and 50 degrees in California, but it’s 23 and snowing in Indiana. Evidently, all this cold is turning Indiana blue(r).

New research from Gallup indicates something totally awesome. Check out this map:

Check out Indiana! We don’t even make the Top Ten Republican States list anymore. Frankly, it’s good news for Indiana.

Then I read this disturbing story out California:

San Francisco — After a Lutheran school expelled two 16-year-old girls for having “a bond of intimacy” that was “characteristic of a lesbian relationship,” the girls sued, contending the school had violated a state anti-discrimination law.

In response to that suit, an appeals court decided this week that the private religious school was not a business and therefore did not have to comply with a state law that prohibits businesses from discriminating.

This borders on giving private schools the authority to discriminate. Maybe next year Indiana and California ought to switch shades of blue.

Justin has been around the Internet long enough to remember when people started saying “content is king”.

He has worked for some of Indiana’s largest companies, state government, taught college-level courses, and about 1.1M people see his work every year.

You’ll probably see him around Indianapolis on a bicycle.
