    Shmuelman points out correctly that there are limits to what states can do, and they are defined by the constitution and the bill of rights.  He's providing you the most extreme examples, because you don't seem to understand the role of the federal government.  There have been conservative states-rights politicians just this past year calling for the resumption of segregation in their states.

    It's absurd, all right, but that doesn't mean it's not true.

    So you say "Good for Kansas" for forcing one particular religious view to be taught in schools to the detriment of all other beliefs and for lying about science to the students, at a time when US students already have a hard time competing in the world.

    That's pretty silly.  And unconstitutional.
