look up any word, like timebomb:
Those who have hijacked the meaning of conservatism and screwed up the Republican brand, like most GOP primary voters these days. That base: "an excitable, overlapping assortment of Fox News friends, Limbaugh dittoheads, Tea Party animals, war whoopers, nativists, Christianist fundamentalists, à la carte Catholics (anti-abortion, yes; anti-torture, no), anti-Rooseveltians (Franklin and Theodore), global-warming denialists, post-Confederate white Southrons, creationists, birthers, market idolaters, Europe demonizers, and gun fetishists."
If you are Liberal or Progressive, don't forget to spring ahead 1 hour tonight. If you are Regressive, forget it. You folks have fallen so far behind that 1 hour won't make much difference.

Opposite of progressive. One who is opposed to women's rights, minority rights, universal civil rights, religious freedom, freedom of dissent, universal equality, and cares little to nothing for his fellow man.

In favor of widening the economic divide and eventual elimination of the middle class. In sum, one who believes society ought undo all progress made since 1920 and go back to the 19th century.

Currently in control of the federal government.
Much as Wal-Mart "rolls back" prices, regressives "roll back" freedoms.

A person who don't believe progress means granting rights to dangerous minorities. A decent person.
Commie:God is regressive.
