Did they spike the fruit punch or something?

I've witnessed several historic events the last week or so.

1) The confederate flag being torn from it's masts.

This may seem symbolic for some, but the symbolism is deeply rooted in our nations history. I really never thought I'd see the day.

2) Marriage equality

The ENTIRE friggen country! Equality for all! The repubs will keep being dragged kicking, but they've not only lost the battle, they've lost the war on LGBTQ!

I thought I might see that during my lifetime, but I'm still shocked that THIS court did it! Thank you, Justice Kennedy!

Just ponder the history we are living. Twenty years from now it will seem unbelievable that this nation supported this bigotry and hate for so long.

I'm pretty happy today.

1. I am happy and I am stunned...

It feels sort of dream like and it's the best dream I have had in a long time. The hate attacks have gone on way too long and they make me sad. This helps a lot. It won't give me back my peace of mind that haters won't still be out there doing damage. But, at least the courts are finally sticking up for equality and that is something we can all be proud of.

13. that's for sure.

But, the good news is some Republicans have spoken about hate being wrong and having the flag that has become a symbol of that flying over capitol buildings is wrong. Some have come out and said that it is good that gay marriage is now possible in all 50 states. Some even say taxes need to be raised. So, I think we are winning the culture war and then the political one will be in the bag.

6. I wonder if they are aware of all the clubs they've handed us over the past several years.

 

I can't wait until Bernie bashes them over the heads with them!

3. Look out for Tony Scalia, though.

I saw him lurking around, trying to drop a turd in that punch bowl. He's carrying a Ziploc baggie in his left hand. Keep him away from the bowl!

I put NOTHING past these 3 fuckers.

7. The Confederate flag is down for good, and the rainbow flag is flying at full mast.

16. The country is progressing.

It dismays me every time someone says things are getting worse.

It's getting so much better in this country that it's actually astonishing.

Especially since social media came around.

Marijuana legalization in 5-10 years, tops.

Basic income in 15-20, tops.
