Inclusive is a political buzzword. They use it because it sounds good, but it really means more expansive meaning larger and more bloated when it come to government programs like the ones described.


I actually sort of resent this comment. It's NOT a buzzword, but it will be, I might make it one if I can. And I am not a "they".
I am just me talkin' the talk and walking the walk I always have.

Pfft.



Inclusive has a strong negative connotation to many. I wouldn't waste my time trying to salvage this word.


And the 'many" it has a 'negative connotation" to, are those I typically have no use for. It's only in your mind. Trying to make something bad out of something good. That. Is. All.


Connotations are all in the mind by definition.

Inclusive tends to mean excluding whites and especially white males. If you aren't a white male maybe you are just oblivious to this fact.


WHAT? Oh man, you are really, really far out there. This isn't about race or gender. It's about the needy who come in all ages, colors and genders.

Wow. Just wow.

When Leftists continually weaponize words by co-opting, twisting and redefining them you will invariable develop a negative connotation towards words that were once benign.

For instance, when I hear the word 'inclusive' I know I am about to become the victim of a social injustice perpetrated by Leftists and their militant wing the SJWs simply because I am a white male.

I hate the ideology that thinks that just because I have something they want, they feel entitled to it.


You sure didn't mind taking my money when you were in the military. Did my tax dollars pay for your education too?

Or maybe you've just become a bit paranoid?

Growing pains. The country is going through growing pains. It will be okay, Metallicus. We are in a frenzied state at the moment, politically and socially. It's just a word. I guess people will assign their own meaning to it, but I meant no harm by it.

I think we all just need to be shhhhh for a while.

I'll start. Goodnight, Metallicus.

All part of the contract I signed. In return for my labor, I got paid. I had to earn it, it was not given to me.

The point is, you got paid (and continue to get paid) with my money... and I don't remember signing sh!t.

In fact, the money I'm forced to pay afforded you an opportunity that I myself was denied. Despite ridiculously high ASFAB scores and more than adequate physical abilities, not a single branch of the military would let me serve my country... and I tried three times.

You receive tax payers money from your time in the military, doesn't that make you a recipient of socialist policy ?

Correct me if I am wrong, isn't socialism taking one person's money and giving it to another, as in my tax payments go to paying you for your previous job?

How can you be against a ideology you directly profit from ?
