I guess you need a dictionary or reading glasses. You only have to go as far as "Affirmative Action" on the list to see it is not some liberal hit piece on the right. It seems to encapsulate the Washington elite pretty nicely as I know no 'progressive' that would brag about advocating racism against their own people. That is what Rush and Beck would call it and there it is on the list. So settle down and get a dictionary or use google if you need to know what a word means so badly. You obviously want some biased political answer or a lefty joke to swing at. All I see is a post whining that after not bothering to read the list fully, it still did not speak to your sensibilities. Try clicking a different thread. I am sure a new birth certificate thread is just waiting around the corner for ya.
Before you decide to correct my grammar or try to correct me on what a word means, decide if you are willing to debate the English language with me or not. READY TO GO, ANYTIME!

Really, since your signature states "READY TO GO, ANYTIME!"
What is wrong with NOW! Come on, give me the breakdown on the label progressive-thanks whaaa-every once in awhile I feel the need to label and box. Especially when people try to hide their TRUE intentions.
Kind of irks me when pseudo-intellectuals ATTEMPT to obfuscate and derail.
I find it amazing this was created by a liberal and they left out the code word.
Progressive. Come on, when a Republican says Progressive, it must be code word for something. What is it?

I am just asking the meaning of a word. What is wrong with that?
Really, I am interested in finding out what the TRUE agenda is of the progressive movement.
Much of political discourse is conducted in a code designed to express a particular point of view to supporters, while being able to deny that implication to the rest of society. This is the definition of Orwellian Newspeak, as described in the novel 1984. The key code words in the novel were
There is no mention of right and left. The OP is baiting.
Frank Luntz is the principal architect of Republican code language. He has publicly praised the idea of Newspeak.
I found this crazy list on a liberal website. Some of the definitions are just plain silly, some are offensive and surprisingly, many are dead on.

Wow, they provide a link to someone they STATE creates code words. Excellent point, NOT!
Please provide link or proof this list comes from anyone other then a liberal.
Please prove me wrong, I would really love it.
