"I suppose this is part of the living constitution you continue to push, every time your feelings change the laws we live under will change to reflect them."

It's not about my feelings. I wish it were, but sadly it is not. It is about the will of the people in conjunction with our sacred document, the United States Constitution.

In my lifetime, it was illegal to marry someone of another race, for blacks to attend white schools, to teach children about evolution, to buy liquor on Sundays, to have same sex, consensual intimate behavior in the privacy of your own home, to watch pornography, for blacks to be allowed the right to vote, any heterosexual sexual behavior outside the confines of marriage, to own, use or possess any quantity of Marijuana for any reason. It was legal to segregate, redline, gerrymander, beat your own children, deny access to restaurants, movies etc. to certain minorities, for police to slap people during interrogation, to make voting prohibitive to certain segments of society, to arrest without Miranda rights, to hold people month after month incarcerated without due process. Yes, laws change, often to reflect the humanity of society as it progresses. Sorry that escaped you after dropping out in middle school.

"We lived through 8 years of Obama's..." blah, blah, blah.

And we lived through eight years of the most vile, racist, hate filled, lying attacks on this board imaginable towards President Obama. It is more than a little disingenuous now that you whine like a school girl because we only report news, or copies of screen shots of your president's Tweets. Shame, hypocrite!!!
