Here we go again...another "genius" has redefined words to make the 2nd amendment RACIST....shocker....Being as the southern states were the slave owners...and the north fought the south...how would the 2nd amendment have been helping them KEEP slaves after slavery was illegal? Always a clear sign of panic when the Communist Left must resort...yet again...to playing the race card... So pathetic....

Ryan Amado's curator insight, December 11, 2013 1:38 AM

This is mind boggling.  It is one thing if you do not think homosexuals should get married based on one's religion.  It is another to believe that they should be thrown in jail and treated the same as real criminals.  Just like one is allowed to be against it without question, one may be for it without question.  The fact that these people still view it as a crime is rather disgusting.

Creator of ‘The Wire’ says ‘There are now two Americas. My country is a horror show.’ | Daily Crew | Scoop.it

America is a country that is now utterly divided when it comes to its society, its economy, its politics. There are definitely two Americas. I live in one, on one block in Baltimore that is part of the viable America, the America that is connected to its own economy, where there is a plausible future for the people born into it. About 20 blocks away is another America entirely. It’s astonishing how little we have to do with each other, and yet we are living in such proximity.
