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

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
