What is up with this latest wave of Limbaugh/Glenn Beck drones coming on to city-data anyways? It seems that every blog on the internet is heavily infested with these conservo-bot trolls! Is it some diabolical computer program doing this?

Curiously enough, I never seem to be able to find someone at my level who have the cajones to openly spew this much invective in real life.

Same thing when anti-abortion people started called themselves "pro-life". The other side then adopted the monikor "pro-choice", of course, not "pro-death".

The progressive opposition, currently known as "conservatives" or tea partiers, should consider adopting something like "American Values" or "Capitalists" as an alternative name to the odious "progressives" (which makes me barf)
Dude. What in tarnation are you talking about? Is there some dimensional rift on the Internet that allowed you to speak from some other universe??? Snake, where are ya when we need ya?

I'm pretty sure the term "progressive" in this context doesn't have the typical political connotations associated with it.

Actually, I find most message boards online, to include this one, are full of brain dead liberals (or progressives...take your pick) I'd say liberals outnumber conservatives 5 to 1 on here. Oh, and nice way to "tolerate" opposing viewpoints by calling folks "conservo-bot trolls". Typical & gutless.

Again, a differing view is not "invective". However, you haven't met me. Then again, I feel quite certain that I'd be above your level.

Progressives: The new Communists.

I guess the trolls are sending their reinforcements now. I should stop leaving food out in the open, because it truly does attract the pests.
