Man, you know, I CHOSE to drop it but, as I said before, republicans are a belligerent species, so, of course, they will keep on this topic, b/c they
are feral, until I concede (never happen).
Unfortunately, I don't have the time to read ALL of the posts here (like 15 or so) soncemy last post but I will take issue with one.
The Dems didn't create Newspeak. It was the conservatives from Fox and Ann Coulter and the like.
Liberal from the dictionary means "holding, expressing, or following politcal views that support civil liberties, democratic reforms, and use of
governmental power to promtoe social progress.
Webster's II New Riverside University Dictionary, P. 689 (1984).
Conservative means "tending to oppose change :favoring traditional views and values; moderate cautious."
Webster's II New Riverside University Dictionary, P. 301 (1984).
Now, who has villified the word liberal when it actually stands for social progress? Was it Fox News?
Now, I'm real tired and pissed off (had a bad day). We can drop this but, if you choose to continue....
