I'm so goddamn sick of hearing these facsist pigs using liberal/left/progressive/democrat/radical/etc as derisive terms as a given, as commonly as evil/devil/cancer/etc.
I've long considered the definition of "radical" to be out of the "normal/common concensus, to be totally incorrect. It is the so-called normal that eats up the absurdity of top-down rule and bottom-up payment. My definition of radical is this capitalist system of greed takes all and screw the public and especially labor.
Another one: Who chose the color Red as signifying Republican (vs. Blue= Dem), whereas red has traditional mean the Left? At least that one is worth a grin or two.
For the very first time I heard a comrad tell a repub words to the effect; "you dumbass, you don't even know the name of the opposition party ("DEMOCRAT" Party)
Just felt like nit-pickin' this morning...
