The Lefties are at it again. Having completely destroyed that fine word, “liberal,” along with the enlightened 18th century sensibilities that went with it, they have now moved on like locusts through the lexicon, and want to be called “progressives.”Also I worship Obama, so there's that.
The policies they advance, the behavior they display in support of them, and their inevitable consequences are taking this country backward, not forward, as these same policies have every time they have reared their ugly heads throughout human history. If liberals want a new moniker, they should be called regressives.Quite right, ma'am! The problem the true leftist faces is not whether to regress, but what Golden Age to regress to: the eras of racial harmony and equality of the sexes, of peace and happiness, of freedom of expression, freedom from hunger or indeed poverty...why the whole thing sets me to dreaming of the day that Thomas Jefferson kissed Nat Turner full on the lips and proclaimed each Sunday to be Free Money Day, with ice-cream and subsequent dental check-ups.
Most of what liberals espouse has not only not brought progress, it is sending us hurtling back into Neanderthal territory (with apologies to Neanderthals).
