This is surely not our grandparents America.

But, it is the 21st century and the divisions of what was and what is to be are broadening the gaps on issues such as same sex marriage, healthcare reform and other key issues.

Obviously, some republican politicians and conservatives are angry and mourning.  On the other hand, some democratic politicos and liberals are exhuberant and celebrating.

To commemorate this historical American moment, here is the US Supreme Court decision and tweets from Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and others, moments after the announcement:

Bobby Jindal reacts: "Marriage between a man and a woman was established by God, and no earthly court can alter that." More soon @NOLAnews

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
