    Liberals get upset by policies that allow police to stop people walking down the street and searching them, progressives think it is good because only criminals will have anything to hide.

    Few back stop-and-frisk idea in violent S.F. area - SFGate

    Liberals see a proposal to give police APCs and wonder why police need them, progressives think UC Berkley police need one.

    IPS – Liberal Berkeley Poised to Acquire Armoured Vehicle | Inter Press Service

    I love the statist justification of an incident that ended with no one getting hurt justifies police getting a vehicle designed to carry soldiers into combat.

    The Berkeley PD is not liberal and has a proud history of beating liberals to a pulp.

    Liberals point out problems, but don't have any answers.

    Progressives claim to have answers, but can't agree on the problem.

    Feel free to point out anywhere I ever said Jan brewer is a conservative.

    In fact, feel free to point out anywhere I said anything nice about Brewer.

    Progressive and liberal are the same.
    They started out as Progressives a hundred years ago, then when it became a bad word they changed to liberal. Now that Liberal is a bad word, they have changed back to progressive.
    It is the same meaning weather you use progressive or liberal, it means big Government.
    They are in both parties.
    They are for a big Government who wants to control each and everyone of us.
