Here's the most recent Torie plan before I go to the rest of train's work.

UC - raw score plus UCC multicounty cover
UP - UC plus UCC pack
US - UP plus UCC single county cover

cover and pack are defined in the OP. I hope that helps.

Thank you. That single county UCC cover rule sort of forces chops to go outside UCC's, resulting in something like the below, then doesn't it (where I lose chops into Saginaw and the Lansing UCC's)? Do you think that is a good policy? I really think that the cover and pack rules, should only be triggered when one reaches macrochop size myself, but putting that aside, and focusing on just single county UCC's, where, in a state like Michigan, with so many single county UCC's, it sort of forces gang banging when it comes to chops to be directed towards non UCC counties. I don't think non UCC folks will be happy with that. It also "forces" more erosity of course, although I don't think the map below is an erosity disaster - just substandard.

MI Torie 2015F

SKEW 2 (R) (4D, 3d, 1e, 5r, 1R) [1 (R) in Torie E]
POLARIZATION 18 [17 in Torie E]
INEQUALITY 11 (range), 10 (ave dev) (range 5977, ave dev 1458) [11/11 in Torie E]
CHOP 12 raw (UC 12, UP 12, US 13) [12/13/13/15 in Torie E]
EROSITY 122 [115 in Torie E]

As anticipated the erosity rose by 7 in order to remove the cover penalty and one of the two single county UCC chops.

I'm represented by David Ciccilline. I like to imagine a sassy gay man gets the goat of a lot SoCons in the House. I've voted for him all three times he's run.

I don't think anyone I disagree with is a good person.

Republican primary narrows down to these two great leaders. Who makes it out alive?

Clickhole is a liberal site funded by Obamacare in one instance, not a Marxist site.

I dunno, those look like major takedowns of liberal feminist tropes.

And the book I linked to is fantastic, but it might be above your reading level of Upworthy gif-articles.

LOL. Yes bashing Meg Whitman is totally something liberals would never do. And income inequality is something liberals are certainly concerned about.

The book seems to be a history of the French Revolution, not some long tirades about the proletariat or complaining about how Democrats are evil imperialist neoliberals.

I had a bacon cheeseburger.  It sure was good, too!

Besides the awful way of presenting the content, I did think the message was pretty good. 

I am no fan of direct cash payments, but I definitely support expanding the Earned Income Tax credit, an incremental increase in the minimum wage (not a big fan of a sudden increase due to decrease in employment as seen here: http://www.nber.org/papers/w12663.pdf ). 

But I think the key is education, education, education!      In particular, while raising education spending in and of itself doesn't necessarily help, what would help (in my opinion) is a significant increase in teacher pay and a big, big increase in qualifications required to teach.  School education departments need to have engineering-like GPA averages and majoring in the specific subject should be required to teach math or science. 

On a side note, I think it would be much, much worse to be poor in Silicon Valley than say, Appalachia.  At least in poorer areas the cost of living is lower and people don't have to compete against geniuses if they do manage to climb the upward ladder and get a degree (an upward-climbing poor child living in Silicon Valley has to compete against hordes of well-educated, privileged kids with laser-like academic focus on academics, whereas in Appalachia a degree can situate one relatively high on the economic hierarchy).

This guy is a State SoS and holds a radio show at the same time? That's seriously f**ked up.
Hey Chavez had a three hour TV show everyday so I don't get why Kansas's very own clown can't have the same thing.

I generally hate things like this, but this one is for a worthy cause.
