1) a Bolshevik, or someone accused of having Bolshevik (communist) leanings).
2) (more commonly) an adjective meaning that someone is very assertive in the pursuit of something and/or hostile to authoritarian manoeuvres by others. A bolshy person gets cross if confronted and is likely to say "what's it to you?", "mind your own business" and stuff like that a lot.
3) also the name of a short-lived youth magazine run by the Alliance for Workers' Liberty.
He was getting stroppy with me, so I started getting bolshy.
A lot of students get a bit bolshy after a few pints.
In George Orwell's dystopia "Nineteen Eighty-Four", Newspeak was the corrupted/purged language everyone was supposed to speak according to the totalitarian dictatorship which ran everything. Words with subversive potential and those which had unclear meanings were eliminated, along with references to the past. The attempt was to bring language, and therefore thought, into line with the wishes of the rulers.
It is also used to refer to any instance of politically-invented language put out through apparatuses of propaganda and social control or by spindoctors.
Words like people-trafficker
, collateral damage
are examples of real-world Newspeak.
This doesn't mean you shouldn't make up new words. Nor does it mean that every political or invented word should be suspect. The point is that new words should expand meaning, not contract it. If a word is used to cover up abuses by the powerful or to manipulate people in favour of the existing regime, it's Newspeak.
Someone who exemplifies rather large amounts of crybaby-bullshit in order to: 1) get sympathy from the people around him/her.
2) make them self feel like less of a dumbass

Anti-Gravity Ball Sack Capacitor. IE: The feeling you get when something made you extremely happy, similar to when you are on a rollercoaster ride and your balls float up and feel neat.
