"Of course you can't dispute this because I am right. "

I'm really trying to understand... the dictionary is a "schoolboy" source and is trumped by your "I heard it with my own ears out of their own mouths"???

This is like an episode of the Twilight Zone.

Dictionaries are a known progressive liberal bias; Urban Dictionary and Encyclopedia Dramatica are the only unbiased sources you can trust.


Progressive means what it means. Just because someone calls themself a progressive however...

Yep and up is down, black is white, and nerd is dumb. You know everything is a Liberal Communist plot with control over everything that does not agree with the Conservative definitions.

What is wrong with you people believing the Encyclopedia over Conservapedia. You all need help!

A CONSERVATIVE is a guy who takes money out of your pocket to give another guy who's a lazy b*****d and has a whole lot more than you.

Like Televandelists, except they use the threat of starvation rather than hellfire.

We could play this all day. Wanna?


Ok but why is it always the conservative that know they are being bull#ted but the liberal rank and file hasnt got a clue? 2000 page health bill and hay "lets read it later" Jim Jones was a # socalist.....wants some cool aid friend?






Ronald Reagan was a deficit buster



Lets vote for W TWICE!!!



Moronic +

I've never noticed that either side is particularly adept at recognizing deception. At least the left is usually self-deluded (really, guys? You thought obama was going to withdraw from Afghanistan? learn the platform before you vote, morons) while the right tends to allow themselves to be deluded by others (the reagan Cult, and the weird celebrity status of Palin, for instance)

Jim Jones was actually a religious autocrat. If you want a nutty socialist, go with Fidel Castro - he imported camels to Cuba to try to make up for the lack of American car imports. Yeah, think about that one for a moment, dude imported camels to a freakin' tropical island.

'Course, Tim McVeigh and his assistants were conservatives. Now if you like we can play name-drop ping pong all damn day long, but I think we'd be better-off if we just teamed up and kicked progressives around until they developed some semblance of a spine.

And then? Libertarians. Where's your Fountainhead now, eh?

You said it buddy. Get some meat on them bones and stop posting politcaly correct clabber. Progressives are really the New Left or hard core Marxist that undertook "direct action" (weathermen ect) in the 60s and 70s. Many latter became college professors, politicians and thier favorite occupation..... bureauc-rats.

Do you have evidence for this? Or are you just pulling it out of thin air?

Provide me with 10 credible links which prove this beyond a doubt and I will write you an apology poem. Remember these links must be 100% credible.

Yea but Jones was cashing dead peoples SS checks and may have gotten some farm subsidies had he stayed a bit further north. And yea autocrat stalinist/maoist/nazi not much diff. And no Mcvey wasnt a conservative. And Ill let you know if we need to join forces.

Well, let us take a look at someone that has come out and said they are a progressive.



So, by emperical data would say that one must go by what they DO, not what they say.

So, Clinton prefers progressive is defined by the beginning of the 20th century.

Hmmm, I wonder whom she meant?

WILSON?
