    Anyone doing a time capsule?

    When we look back 25 years from now, some wont be here, some will, probably the most significant progress and time period in civil rights history since the 1960's. This time period, with its first black president, will have its own Wiki page (unless something new replaces it) explaining all the events that forever changed our lives and the lives of future generations.

    I will be forever grateful to the cosmos for letting me be here, be part of and witness this part of history with you all

    To High School graduating class of 2040:
    In what year did the US Supreme Court strike down the Defense of Marriage Act leading to US legalized same sex marriage?

    Huh, marriage is not a civil right defined in the US Constitution.

    civil rights definition:

    1. rights to personal liberty established by the 13th and 14th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution and certain Congressional acts, especially as applied to an individual or a minority group.

    2. the rights to full legal, social, and economic equality extended to blacks.

    Newsflash to liberals:

    -Obama has already admitted he isn't black. His mother is caucasian so he's mixed race.

    -Half a glass of water is not a full glass of water.

    -$500,000 doesn't make you a millionaire.

    -A 6 inch penis is not a foot long.

    It'll certainly be in law school casebooks and be a part of heated 1L Con Law class discussions.

    Straight from the liberal playbook:

    When you can't support the last liberal lie you told, make up a new one, then attack someone personally.
