When have we culturally "arrived"?

In any movement, there is always a moment when one should be able to say that we as a culture have arrived at the end and equality is achieved. This goes for everything from women's rights, minority rights and also rights of the LGBT community. When does such a movement for equality say mission accomplished?

asknot, i agree with you regarding the tea-party...although fred has a much different take on it. you may wish to read the interview with Bill Gates and his feelings on the minimum wage and his prediction of a much reduced work force.

@Fred- too true. Unions are a need that was born from a corrupt time in our culture. My only complaint with them is when the Union comes before the actual workers. I've never believed that Union=workers. Case in point is Ames and the fact that the union would not compromise with the company and the workers suffered for it locally.

Hmm, while I respect Unions in general...I have no love for them. In many ways, I feel the modern type of unions in the nation cause as much trouble as they solve.

fred...all politicians are opportunists and the republican establishment is no different. i think you have seen that the old guard within the republican party saw the wave waining and then they promptly pounced on the tea-party like a hungry alley-cat on a rat. there are many americans that genuinely believe in the ideals of the tea-party in regards to personal and governmental fiscal responsibility. the attacks against the tea-party, independents and liberatrians by both of the major parties indicates a collusional and protective detente.

We have (every one of us) already have been judged to be sinners by God by being born of Adam. Only by accepting Jesus can we be freed from sin.

fred...1) i never said they were grassroots. 2)there is plenty of hate to go around in politics. 3) the political machine, that is the establishment, has fought to shut them down from their inception. i take exception to your low information voter statement. i think you will find that your judgement, as a blanket statement, is....just plain wrong.

moderation...good morning. personally...i think you have the voting verses not voting backwards. the so-called tea-party showed the power of the vote and how disconnected Washington has become. dissatifaction in leadership and direction is best exemplified by the lack of apathy and the power of the vote. unification politically is a dangerous thing as evidenced by the "fast and furious" attacks by the career republicans and the democrats at any threat to their stranglehold on the governance of our country. while many other groups are heralded as brave when they find their "voice", the so-called tea-party groups were promptly villified by the machine. i think many are finding out that the two parties simply play a game of good politician-bad politician. in the end we all lose. Bigfoot may have actually figured out that voting simply does not matter in the big plan as the results have already been decided.

Bigfoot-of course, one person can't come in and bust chops. One person still requires support from a common thinking base.It is a process that will occur only with the 'support' of the electorate.i think the tea party is the best current example of the product of not voting vs. voting.

Take this for example.

I would love to see a president go on national tv and appeal to the court of public opinion why is it an individual who breaks the law in regards to illicit drugs gets a prison sentence. But those who dang near wrecked the economy in the financial industry get off scott free?

Just one of many things that needs to be openly discussed.

Oh I remember Bush vs Gore. And indeed Iraq was a debacle. But the more I look at the two parties the less of a difference I am seeing.

Our system is better than Russias. But it could be way way better.

I guess what sets me apart from the those who vote is that I refuse to settle for less.

I would vote but there just isn't the caliber of individual that I would vote for seeking office.

I want to see someone come in and bust some chops in the capitol. Someone who isn't tied to any party. Someone who isn't afraid to absolutely get in the faces of the dregs that allow so much foolishness to go on with our government.

Heck Fred, you know Obama must have something to do with it. He probably had his Muslim brothers highjack it, so he can personally lead a team to recover it. Just to make the Republicans look bad. It's obvious.

Bob B says what I post is just sad... Now I dont care who you are, THATS FUNNY..

My point was that if an individual has lied so much that a website is dedicated to them, well, I would say there may be a problem there. If there is a greeklies dot com then I would be looking out what I said. And if there were no luvesthesouthlies dot com, then I would say one could take his word to the bank.
