Political Cartoons & Videos Thread IV
#1
Somehow I accidentally deleted "Political Cartoons & Videos Thread III". I tried to get it reinstalled, but no such luck. I'm terribly sorry. S11

JL, have you looked at the admin board where soft delete section is located?

The entire thread might be there.

You might be looking in the wrong place, I have been unable to find a demo that would allow me to find exactly where to go in the admin board. Soft delete works for individual threads  and posts from intact threads, you should have it someplace in the admin side.

Maybe you ask Twitchin Kitten to find it?

Visit the thread page for Politics for the soft deleted thread, it should still be there.....


Look at the IN LINE MODERATION box at the bottom right to see if you can RESTORE a thread bar?

The thread should be all in pink, which means only YOU and lucky Super Mods can see it and no one else.

More typical Bullschist from the uninformed.  These people are NOT Liberals.  They are Progressives, and as a true Liberal, I know better.  

I get so tired of having to see, and listen to consistent ignorance and intellectual laziness.  Limbaugh, Hannity, and many others know better, but are too intellectually lazy to be honest about things.  Liberalism is the greatest political and economic philosophy ever devised.  Just ask John Locke, John Stuart Mill, Alexis de Tocqueville, Friedrich von Hayek, and a host of others, who do not deserve this dishonesty.

Its Progressivism Stupid!   Gah

John, You simply must get over the misuse of vocabulary. Words have meaning, but that meaning does change - fairly or not. You and I, and most of the people in this forum seem to have larger and more correct vocabularies than most, but it is a losing effort to demand total satisfaction.

Consider this: Those Leftists adopted the name "Progressive" because "Liberal" got too contaminated because of being designated to them. Even they don't want to be called Libs. Correct or not, it is not the word that has been stolen, it is the meaning. You need to say "Classical Liberal" to get any positive feedback from it.

I am far more incensed with the use of "Capitalism" incorrectly used instead of "Free Enterprise," because it was the KGB that made its usage a pejorative drag against our nation - and our own help them everyday.

Wow you are stirred up when you post it twice!

I agree with you about the chronic misuse of the word Liberals , when they are really LEFTISTS.

Not a chance.  Its people such as myself, who are gradually changing things back.  If you will note, the word "Progressive" is reentering the mainstream, because people such as myself have been raising holy hell about it.  And I'm tired of having to put "Classic" in front of the "L" word.  It shouldn't have to be there.  

Same thing with "Free Enterprise".  I never use the "C" word any longer, because it was Marx's way of denigrating economic Liberty.  

Words Really do have meaning.  So no, I intend to keep raising hell, just as you and I do over all things Collectivist, be it Fascism, Socialism, or Marxism.  When you give up the fight, you have given up.  Sorry.

Oops.  S14   I removed one of them.  That's what happens when one doesn't double check things.

As for my fight against the misuse of Liberalism, I just get frustrated sometimes.  I idolize/worship Individual Liberty, and would not tolerate its loss.  And since true Liberals are those who promote Liberty, they are both joined at the hip.  "Freedom" is fine, but "Liberty" also includes "responsibility for one's actions, so naturally I go with the later.  

I don't mean to be such a pain in the arse, but it really sticks to my craw for some reason.  I enjoy listening to Rush, but sometimes get so mad with his purposeful misuse of the word, that I have destroyed two radios out of frustration.  My basement, where my shop is located, has concrete block walls, and radios don't stand a chance when coming in contact with them.  S18

There is a member at another forum who is a CLASSIC Liberal, who keeps trying to educate people there that Liberals are not the same as Leftists/Progressives/Socialists. A few have caught on and it is spreading there.

The real problem is that the vast majority of people never understand the differences in part because they lack the reasoning skill to distinguish the difference.

I believe the truth is that people are, by nature, habitual and prone to what they have been doing before.  I see this in every anthropological study I've ever come across.  Humans naturally resist change, because we are conservative by nature.  Introduce new things and no matter how logical, or true, they still tend to go with what they are more comfortable.  For example Ron Lambert keeps using the Liberal Left jargon, no matter how much he has learned.  I see him do it often.  we're habitual, and I'm sure this happened in the early 30s when FDR started this Lie.  But over time people fall in line and got in step with the rest of the group.  

And that's where we are now.  Its hard to change what one learned growing up.  But the biggest impediment is someone like Rush Limbaugh, who has millions of listeners.  He keeps using the term for leftists, because he is unconsciously trying to appease his late Daddy.  His daddy was convinced he was a failure in life, and Rush has been trying to prove to his late Father that he really is a success AND has been listening to what his Daddy taught him.  His Daddy died before he really made the Big time, and this has been ruling Rush ever since.

Well, his Daddy's dead, and what he taught him with this is Wrong, and if his Daddy was alive today, he would tell him so.  But he has this deep seated psychological need to please his Daddy, regardless the facts.  In one sense he is "Stuck on Stupid".   He knows the truth, because James K Glassman, the founder of Tech Central Station, and former Washington Post OpEd writer set him straight in the later 1990s,  when Rush kept quoting him and referring to him as a Conservative.  When Glassman heard about it, he was quick to correct him and tell him that he was Liberal in the true sense.  And he set him straight.  I have listened to Rush since 1989 and know all about his psychological need to please his late Daddy, who died thinking he was a failure in life.   This is the One thing that has plagued Rush, more than anything else.  His father was the most important person in his life, and he has had to live with this for over 30 years.

He knows better but cannot help himself, and all to please his Daddy.  The biggest problem here is that he is impeding the truth.  As long as he keeps misrepresenting facts, the longer it will take to correct this Progressive FDR lie from 1932.  He knows better, but can't help himself, because of his Daddy.
