It's about fucking time, Obama. That's all there is to say really.
The best part of that video is how he thinks there's only been three thousand years of human history. I fucking hate people.
So... I'll keep searching for a place called home:
I'll rip my roots from this earth into the unknown.
Is it for the dreams I chased or the ones I caught?
This mystery, this misery is killing me.
So, now, I'll leave behind a murder scene.
My life isn't real; it's just a silhouette—
and, when the sun goes down, I won't exist.
“We live in an age of reproduction. Most of what makes up our personal picture of the world we have never seen with our own eyes--or rather, we've seen it with our own eyes, but not on the spot: our knowledge comes to us from a distance, we are televiewers, telehearers, teleknowers.” (M.F.)
formerly known as formerly known.
"Modern" humans have existed for roughly ten thousand years, and written history about three thousand years.

Depends how you define "modern." Homo sapiens sapiens has been around for how many millions of years I don't really know. Human civilization has been around for about 12,000 years. But all human civilization until the last half-millennia or so has been either prehistoric, paleolithic, neolithic, or pre-modern.

My argument remains that Romney believes in the Bible, so anything that existed before the Bible said it did, Romney believes that, too. I guarantee he doesn't believe human history dates back prior to three thousand years ago, let alone ten thousand or two million years ago. He believes the world began just as the Bible said it did.
I'm also using the phrase "human history" to blanket the entire existence of the Homo genus. I realize Homo sapiens have only existed for approximately three hundred thousand years.

Anyway, this is a cute gesture, but Obama's official position is that this is a state issue. So . . . yeah.
I'm from England, UK and it saddens me to see America, arguably the most influential and powerful country in the world, is so backwards in giving the same rights to gay and lesbian people.
The problem is, there are too many openly homophobic news anchors and politicians in America, and they keep stirring the pot of hatred. It is an issue, and one I hope you guys can sort out.
Because that's exactly what it is: bigotry. That picture Will posted is spot on. These people are unquestionably wrong, and future generations will rightfully look back on them with disgust (as a lot of us already do) when this humiliating moment in history finally passes.
Believe it or not, on my other forum (Dream Theater Forums, .org for what it's worth), we've had people temp banned for accusing homophobes on the forum of being bigots. And the thread itself was closed because the global moderator disagrees that this is a civil rights issue.
