    It's ok, there have always been stupid people, and there will always be stupid people.  Heck we were once monkeys and only 50 generations ago people were all about really sick torture.

    You cannot conquer, you radiate and absorb.  Keep being awesome, and the world around you will slowly get more awesome.  10,000 year view.  No one alive then (if anyone is) will remember any of us now, even George Bush and Obama will be footnotes on the internet that only Watson will get right on Jeopardy.  All there is, is to be awesome now.

    When we talk about war, we're really talking about peace.

      dying breed.  Be depressed if that guy's views were on the rise statistically speaking.  They're not; to the contrary.  I think I saw a recent data point that more than 75% of young voters (age 18-29) are not against same-sex marriage.  

      Haters gonna hate.  But they are shrinking.  If America was that all out racist, no way President Obama would have been elected once, much less reelected amid a mixed economy.  

      I'm gay and I save my depression for things like climate change and the fleecing of the middle & working classes by the 1%.  Things where actual statistics are what could make a grown man wanna cry.

        Over time blew my mind.  ONLY 5% OF PEOPLE approved of inter-racial marriage in 1950, and it was still only about 50% in 1990!   Holy crap I had no idea.
