    Why not leave a "Liberal" to define their own meanings rather than guess?
    Why not ask?
    Why not list your own non-standard definitions of words?

    Why?

    "Conservative / Backward bigoted science denier."

    You aren't helping to change that view.

    Extremely entertaining....You have a fertile mind but you haven't a chance for employment at Websters

    Please tell, do you think Progressives see their reflection when they look into a mirror?

    First, you should learn what words like "liberal" and "progressive" really mean. Right now, you clearly don't know.

    i suppose what whodey really wants to describe is what American conservatives hear when they hear progressive opinions expressed and filter them through their own peculiar perspective.

    So for example, they do not want the separation of church and state which has been a fundamental principle of the US system from the outset, and they demand a sectarian affiliation to their own religious bigotry and to exclude alternatives including atheism or Islam.

    Similarly, it seems they interpret human rights as "The right to sexual deviancy, illicit drugs, or killing your unborn child " and would prefer to abandon any commitment to human rights in order to prioritise their own vicious and divisive prejudices.

    This is a useful list and could be greatly expanded to explain why seemingly rational and reasonable political conversations descend into the snake pit.

    No.

    Do you know why they call themselves Progressives? It's because they are too stupid to realize that they are really communists.

    Do they call themselves Progressives or is that a label used by conservative Americans to describe non conservative Americans?

    Oh I think I have.

    Although I believe in Creation, I don't scoff at notions like evolution or the age of the earth being billions of years old. Although I scoff at climate alarmists, I don't deny that world wide temperatures are increasing.

    What I can't stand about climate alarmists is that they have no brain function. When we have severe cold spells they claim it is because of carbon emissions. This is why they changed the term "global warming" to "climate change". They then have license to blame any unwanted climate change on carbon emissions. Hell, they even blame earthquakes and volcanos on carbon emissions, no joke. They claim that because of rising ocean levels, it is putting undue pressure on the tectonic plates to produce more earthquakes. And they say that ice on mountain volcanic craters is decreasing, which allows for eruptions to become for frequent, much like unscrewing the top of a lid of shaken soda. But at the end of the day, they continue to point to elevating temperatures, so in reality, they lied once again because it is really still about global warming.

    I also scoff at their solutions. Political schemes like cap and trade do very little of substance to alter what science would have us believe needs to be done. It's just throwing tax money at these clowns with full faith that it will fix the climate demons.

    I've even seen reports that dino's were responsible for more carbon emissions than what humans produce simply by passing gas. Do you think that is what killed them all off? After all, it was far warmer then that it is now on a global scale.

    Progressives are statists. They continually look at the never ending problems within society and seek to empower a centralized government to fix them all for us. And since there are never ending problems, they continually throw at us never ending pieces of legislation.

    At the end of the day, any damage or unintended consequences of "fixing" the world in this way are simply swept under the rug and ignored. What is also ignored is whether or not their programs actually fix what they set out to fix.

    And there you go. Everything that follows is just filler.

    Let's try to forgive Whodey folks. Whenever he loses debates here (which is often) he falls back on name calling.
