    I'm saying that because you agree with what she said, it confirms my opinion that you are indeed a Regressive. She was speaking out of character. She's better than that, she's a real liberal.

    If you don't like my characterization of you as a Regressive, tough shit. Your whining is tedious.

    Well, Mac, all I can tell ya is, ask every liberal/leftie you personally know if they think Dr. Suess is outdated, racist, and not worth having in their public library. The liberals/Democrats you personally know, you personally ask them.
    I heard Gloria Steinem yesterday at the March for Racial Justice in Washington. Bless her 83 year old heart. I betcha she'd pop you in the mouth if you said that about Suess.
    The regressives haven't taken over yet, and I'll be goddamned if I would ever support a party that did allow that codswallop. Of course, I've never been one party or the other, so I guess I don't really count. I really get passionate about Dr. Suess, though. Don't be messing with my favorite authors. LOL

    Yes, you helped him with the distinction betwixt Progs and Regressives he was making, and he is apparently appreciative.

    Sometimes Regressives agree with Progs without being a prog.

    :lol:

    I agree with OldLady in saying that this librarian is a dumbass. Or are you agreeing with the librarian in this scenario?

    I'm beginning to think that you've lost the plot.

    Agreed about the behaviors, and Suess, but I'm not so sure the Regressives haven't taken over the party. This may just be wishful thinking, but I'm sensing that the pushback on this bullshit is coming from all sides, including real liberals. Here's hoping.

    None of these terms you're using mean anything.

    Gawd, you're still humping. You're trying very hard to avoid the Regressive tag.

    Exceptions prove the rule. Think what you will.

    No, you're still not getting it.

    I could not possible give less of shit what some message board poster choses to call me.

    I am pointing out the logical flaws in your delusions. I understand that it can be upsetting, but trying to re-write the narrative isn't going to help.

    You have never seen 'prog used as short hand for 'Progressive'?

    Seriously?

    I entirely agree with the bolded statement. But ideology can be useful as a background to provide relief for expressed viewpoints to some extent.
