…………I have personally never used the term PROGRESSIVE on this blog or anywhere else, except to complain as I am going to here;

WHY DO REPUBLICANS CALL THE LEFT ‘PROGRESSIVE’?   What is PROGRESSIVE about them?    What PROGRESS has Biden brought to America except progressing into quick or destruction?

We’re RIGHTWINGERS, and you know all the negative baggage THAT brings on 95% of the media!   The Left isn’t LEFTWINGERS it’s PROGRESSIVE!


WHO invented that term for them……and shouldn’t Republicans, at least, STOP?

It’s bad enough the Left was originally RED and the Right was BLUE….the Left subtly, slowly changed that around.  Can’t have RED when they’re so close to Communism! “For years, both parties would do red and blue maps, but they always made the other guys red,” said Chuck Todd, political director and chief White House correspondent for NBC News. “During the Cold War, who wanted to be red?”

Progressive.   REAL RUBBISH.

    Yeah, well . . . ..

    “Progressives” aren’t so much interested in making things better for everybody as they are in making things worse for white, rich, conservative people. Their DNA has an imperative code sequence dictating that amassing wealth through personal achievement is somehow unfair, immoral, wanton, and accomplished through trickery and theft.

    Given the authority to do so, they’d confiscate so much from the super-rich as to entirely eliminate their ability to provide investment capital for anything, and within one election cycle that wealth would disappear like a sno-cone on a Jersey beach in August.

    The fragment of the Democrat party which calls itself “progressive” is simply a splinter group so dependent upon government freebies that it has no choice but to continue electing far-lefters to office to keep the trough full. Most true Democrats I know are as sick of entitlement programs for no-loads and aliens as I am.

    In essence the “progressives” are chickenlittles, forever predicting doom and disaster unless they get their way, apocalyptists who condemn members of their own party for having the temerity to disagree with their mantra, as demonstrated by AOC’s attack on Biden for not pushing the “Green New Deal” far enough fast enough.

    They’re easily and quickly drawn to the latest loudmouth championing some impending catastrophe based on climate, abortion, health care, voting rights, racism . . . take your pick. They remind me of flibbertigibbet fine-arts majors mesmerized by a glib former hippy professor still reciting notes from his 30-yr-old dissertation.

    Are they interested in equality? Oh, I suppose so . . . in a limited sense and on issues about as tangible and manageable as a popcorn fart in a Missouri tornado. Borrowing from a line by Churchill, progressives (and I have NEVER used that term in a descriptive sense) are irrevocably fixated on the spreading of chaos, the condemnation of white privilege, and the sharing of economic misery.

    Oh, forgot to say . . .

    The simple solution to all this is to remove the party affiliation on the ballots — get rid of the “D” or “R” and bullet-list the candidates’ voting records under their names.

    The believe in the “perfectibility” of the world… and that we are “progressing” towards that end. They don’t understand that “utopia” in Greek, means “nowhere”.


  4. -FJ says:

    AT one time, the chief concern of “progressives” was BIGNESS. But now I think it’s expanded to include the idea of “limits” of “efficiencies” that can be achieved within that “perfectibility”.

    I share your view with respect to the word “progressive” in describing the American political left. There is nothing progressive about any of their policies. In fact, their policies are regressive. The left “adopted” the word “progressive” from Theodore Roosevelt and refuse to give it back.

    The left, as you well know, is famous for making up words or creating new definitions for words that already exist. Take the word “gay” for example. Gay does not mean sexually abnormal, but you’re happy to use that word to describe sexual deviants — and you do use “gay” all the time. Why? To be polite … so as not to hurt some sexual deviant’s feelings?

    Similarly, the left is not progressive — they are communists, but you don’t like to use that word, either, and you’ve criticized me for using the “c” word in the past. The left’s use of the word “progressive” allows the political left to pretend or delude themselves into thinking that they aren’t actually Marxists, and it allows them to help the American people overlook the fact that tens of thousands of Americans serving in uniform were killed fighting communists in China, Korea, and Vietnam. About a dozen or so of these people, killed in action by communists, were my friends.

    So let me be among the first to congratulate you on your recent epiphany.

    Progressive most definitely means communist. I vote for all of us in America so inclined against communism to start using honest real terms. In a way it’s a sub aspect of Orwell newspeak – Freedom=slavery, bad = good as a basis, etc.

    As far as what republicans should or not be doing, where would I start and where would I stop. Endless.
    They insult me. They tell us all the ‘bad things’ the democrats are doing with no plan or stated commitment to do anything about it. Ya know, a 5 yr old can do that for me without me having to pay them tons of money and provide all the benefits they get to be nothing but town criers.

    They are no more valuable than the talking heads on fox who parade an endless stream of disgusting leftists across our TV screen. What value is that? I already know about them, and if they’re trying to reach someone who doesn’t know, they are wasting their time because those people Don’t Watch, Don’t Read, Don’t Listen.

    Remember, 70-some million actually voted for this destruction. In the end it is their rgiht to choose, not mine to tell them. And the last thing they will accept is someone trying to educate them. I have more than my share of experience with that wasted time and effort.

    So, I don’t intentionally watch any of it any more TV either.


  7. geeez2014 says:

    BOCOPRO…glad to know you know Democrats who feel like you do. I know very few who don’t identify as PROGRESSIVES, and very proudly 😦
    Of course they’re into ‘equality’ but only as THEY see it…..socialist equality…not the equality which gives us in America the chance to succeed.
    I hope they never take the R and D off ballots because I have to admit I don’t research into every little judge position and, sometimes, I rely on R…….All I know is, that person may not be everything I wish he was but I know anybody who identifies as D is surely NOT going to be!!

    FJ… Oh, I GET “WHY” they call themselves that………my point is WE use that term and we shouldn’t.

    MUSTANG….the first to congratulate me on MY “recent epiphany”? 🙂 🙂 I’ve never used the Progressive term and have complained about it on my blog since the term started being used so much…..Only today did I decide to do a blog dedicated to it.

    KID…”They tell us all the ‘bad things’ the democrats are doing with no plan or stated commitment to do anything about it.” I agree….but I do laugh when the Dem leadership and commenters suggest REPUBLICANS HAVE NO PLAN when the truth often is THEY MIGHT HAVE A PLAN BUT THE LEFT WON’T LISTEN AND THEY WON’T PUT IT IN THE MEDIA!… That, I’ve seen.

    FOX…I feel totally different about the Dems on there from time to time. I like it because so many Democrats are in the FOX viewership now…..Good for them to see Conservatives give MY point of view and , usually, make far more sense. NOwhere else is that seen…no other news venue.
    I’ve personally seen Democrats change from hearing Conservative opinions, so I’m glad for it.
    I have Black friends at Bible study who I see definitely taking a Right turn….not all, but many of them, for example. One even said to me, years ago, “I’m Black, I can’t vote Right because my family’s always voted Democrat!” And SHE is coming around…..she’s the one whose brother from NY called and said the Dems had done nothing good and he’s not voting for them again…
    We can HOPE, Kid!!


  8. kidme37 says:

    Don’t matter Z. The only thing I hope for at this point is to be able to move to a place where seldom is heard a discouraging word and the skies are not cloudy all day. The place is flushed.


  9. geeez2014 says:

    KID, most of the time, I feel as you do……we’re ‘flushed’…but, as I’ve said here before, I can’t and I won’t can’t stop enjoying an onset of young Conservatives of all colors and creeds, and Lefties turning on this administration, etc etc. Is it enough? Probably NOT…Biden and his handlers are doing ALL THEY CAN to destroy us and it’s far far FAR more insidious than most Conservatives think….I see that, but I cling to some of the good stuff I’m seeing……
    For instance, I NO WAY believe the baby formula was an ‘accident’ or ‘unintended’…..this is all a drill.
    LOTS of what they’re doing, however, is backfiring and getting people MAD….maybe that’ll help in some way?


  10. geeez2014 says:

    I can’t BELIEVE the outrage across the country about $6 gas …..it’s been that here for WEEKS and WEEKS 😦


  11. kidme37 says:

    Z, you gotta go with your heart and thoughts. No judgement here.

    I suspect there will be a temporary blip, manifested in repubs taking back the house and senate in November because of things like the gas prices. Even morons notice that stuff.
    The repubs won’t do anything more than temporary lower gas and maybe taxes though and we’ll be right back to where we are now with what the dems do to us, only they’ll be picking up pretty much where they left off.
    From 2024 (2025) thru 2026 (2027) the dems will till have the white house veto so the repubs likely won’t be able to do anything other than tap the brakes on the destruction.
    If in 2026, Trump doesn’t run or get elected and we get some useless rino (the rest of any repubs who might run other than DSantis or Trump) then we’ll jst be treading water again at best until the dems get back in and take the coutnry down further into the sewer.

    I’m not going to be spending any angst on it. I’m just going to watch the freak show and try to insulate myself from it and laugh as much as I can.

    Nothing is happening of any physical consequence. I don’t expect that to change. Some number of people geting mad over gas, or diesel shortage and the resulting product shortages, or you name it won’t matter outside of the very short term.


  12. -FJ says:

    My California ancestors were all Republican “Progressives” in the oht-teens and twenties. They were against the railroads and for Fighting Bob La Follete.

    As to why we Republicans call the Neo-Liberals “progressives” today is only because that term is self-labelled, and they likely wouldn’t answer to a more truthful moniker like “sh*t-4-brains…”


  13. MAL says:

    Its part of the same old story of doing something wrong then accusing us of doing it, keeping us on the defense. Reverse psychology?
    I mean, what’s in a name? it’s like calling a 7′ man “shorty”.


  14. geeez2014 says:

    KID, funny you should say TEMPORARY BLIP.
    I often think “They started too late, these leftwingers who want to take all of our country over….if they’d have waited till our forty-somethings were a bit older, and all our brain-washed idiot younger people would buy into their CRAP from what they’ve learned in our schools, they’d have had an easier road, with less kick back…”

    I’m frankly surprised that as many younger people ARE balking already…will they be enough? Not sure. Even Bezos and Musk are turning from the Democrats. MUSK, I BELIEVE, even said he’ll be voting Republican …. Something’s happening, my dear KID….but it’s going to be a bumpy ride 🙂
    You mention Trump, but until and unless he starts to watch his mouth, he’ll be harming us more than hurting…..he could have EVERYTHING he wanted if he’d STOP the “I DID THIS” “I;m the BEST” “No president EVER …” Like the way he’s taking so much credit for Republican candidates (or at least the ones he supported who are winning, NOT ALL ARE)….It’s stealing from good Republican candidates who really got there on their own and just needed a boost from him…….or not. He’s not getting them all elected. CHECK THIS OUT from https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/trump-may-hold-off-on-more-endorsements-for-coming-primaries-advisers-say/ar-AAXtOSQ?ocid=uxbndlbing:

    “This is not how he expected this to go,” said one of the advisers. “If Oz loses, it puts him (TRUMP) in an awkward spot because he absolutely trashed David McCormick at his rally and pissed off quite a few allies who never thought he should have endorsed Oz.”

    On Wednesday, Trump urged Oz to simply “declare victory” in a series of comments on his Truth Social platform, while also making unsubstantiated claims about attempts “to cheat with the ballots” in Pennsylvania. At his election night event, Oz told attendees, “When all the votes are counted, we will win.”
    Which speaks terribly for his new Truth Social platform and HIM 😦 😦 WE NEED HIM and this isn’t working 😦 By the way, the article I linked was only the most succinct with the quotes/info I needed here, there are plenty more of them on this subject. 😦

    FJ! SELF LABELED…that’s my POINT! I probably didn’t make it well enough? It’s not WE who called them that…but my problem is WE FELL FOR IT….Even strong Conservatives on TV use it….I JUST CRINGE!!

    MAL: You are SO RIGHT!


  15. geeez2014 says:

    KID: BY THE WAY, the line “unsubstantiated claims” is OBVIOUSLY a biased news person….but they kind of have to say that since no valid claims have been made yet regarding the credibility of the PA vote.

    “.if they’d have waited till our forty-somethings were a bit older, and all our brain-washed idiot younger people would buy into their CRAP from what they’ve learned in our schools, they’d have had an easier road, with less kick back…”

    They’ve had a Very Easy road the last 40 years.

    Hey, if people decide they want to pay 2 or 3 times as much for everything and deal with shortages of everything because they don’t like how Trump talks, and that could very well be true, then let em have that. This illustrates another reason why this place is flushed.


  18. geeez2014 says:

    KID….Do you really think the way Trump talks doesn’t matter? That he’d get a TON more power by saying he’s proud of the Republican candidates he backed, that they’re great people and it was his HONOR, instead of how HE DID IT? Reagan was tough as NAILS and was always civil and dignified and humble. It’s flushed when it doesn’t HAVE TO BE, that is my point. Trump’s language isn’t helping…and he’s getting in HIS OWN WAY from bringing us BACK to where we were 2 years ago.
    I was recommending Trump run for president on this blog 15 YEARS ago and I just have to laugh when people say I’m not supportive of him because I believe he’s cut his OWN future short with his mouth. By the way, MANY people LOVE that….they LOVE his rallies…. but that reaches only his ‘dyed in the wool’ base…not independents, not much.

    THey’ve had an easy road but NOTHING like they will have in 10 years….There were still school teachers without turquoise hair, nose rings, gay, and preaching how slavery defines Americans….I still know some unlike that…they’ll be gone soon, then NO HOLDS BARRED.
    And ya, wouldn’t you THINK the gas prices and food prices and lack of formula,CRT, and more would make a dent in Democrat votes?
    I believe it DEFINITELY IS.

    It is all rubbish and they call us also religious zealots. If they knew God they would humble themselves and repent!


  20. kidme37 says:

    I have no idea why anyone pays attention to how trumps talks.

    Oh, Cuomo did Murder 1 on thousands of Nursing Home inmates by sending Covid patients there instead of the Navy ship docked in NY that didn’t get a single patient but trump called someone bastard so I’m going to vote democrtat !!

    Need I go on ? I could for days and weeks.

    No one cars Z. They want the free stuff, or somehow dems are filling their wallets, or they’re worried about climate crap or homos of God Knows What that has nothing to do with life in America.
    70 some million of the retarded little cretins, plus now we’ll have another 10 million illegals and most will vote in the 2024 elections.

    Plus no states are doing jack about eliminating or even reducing election fraud. The dems are just going to decide to ‘play fair’ next time? No way, they’re balls to the wall, no holds barred already and been that way since obama.

    Geebus Girl… But good luck !


  21. geeez2014 says:

    KID….most people DO NOT KNOW what Trump’s done….we talk here all the time of a media hiding anything positive from our side!
    I remain hopeful….while too cognizant of the truth. And ya, I think what politicians say does matter to voters.
    But, I am with you on how bleak our future is….



  22. geeez2014 says:

    KID.. Would you have told OZ to DECLARE VICTORY when Trump did?


  23. kidme37 says:

    I’ll have to defer to politicians for an answer on OZ.


  24. Baysider says:

    Never use the word. I frequently use “regressives.” That sometimes requires an explanation which I’m happy to supply. Why do Republicans use the term? I am completely baffled – or they are. You DON’T let your enemy choose the battlefield!

    In the Communist revolution in Russia, one group was the big majority, and the other a very small faction. But getting control of the vocabulary (battlefield) is everything. The small, insignificant faction CALLED THEMSELVES BIG – Bolshevik. And they were the ones who named the big majority group SMALL – Menshevik.

    Jumping off Layla’s comment, the left IS a religion with beliefs that exceed the tenacity of the faith of Christianity because there is so little evidence upon which to justify holding their beliefs. As Tom Sowell said, “Much of the social history of the western world over the last three decades has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good.”


  25. geeez2014 says:

    KID…why? I’m no politicians and I know it’s not wise to advise a VICTORY declaration before there’s some decision made….
    Re Trump; if we know voters aren’t enjoying the name calling and bragging, etc., maybe then we might want to just tame it down a bit; NOT change what you’re doing..? The Right needs to attract INDIES….The base won’t be enough votes.

    BAYSIDER…it’s like my Sunday Faith Blog …..They Left MUST rid us of Christianity and depending on something other than GOVERNMENT to make us happy and bring us success!!

    Sowell’s quote sure describes what idiot Lefties bought into with Biden over Trump 😦 How they couldn’t see IT WAS WORKING is way beyond me….It could show they’ll only vote LEFT for the goodies….BUT, that is backfiring…even the necessities are getting too pricey; WAKE UP, DOPES 🙂


  26. MAL says:

    Kid, “I have no idea why anyone pays attention to how Trump talks.” Exactly!
    If you don’t like his tweets, don’t read ’em! Thats the difference between the R & D’s.
    If the Dems don’t like something, they want it outlawed.
    If a Repub doesn’t like something, they don’t go there. They simply ignore it.

    MAL:; no way. I don’t personally know anybody on Twitter…at least I don’t think so. People hear the ugly stuff ALL the time.


    EVer seen the HUGE ANTI-TRUMP CAMPAIGN ON BUSINESS INSIDER? EVERY FREAKIN’ SINGLE DAY, there’s SOMETHING REALLY NEGATIVE ABOUT TRUMP…..I see it on my cell phone news feed…..it’s almost shocking what they come up with. If there’s the SLIGHTEST negative mention of something he said or did, or his second cousin twice removed did, BUSINESS INSIDER’s GOT IT. As its title suggests, it’s supposed to be economy, etc., but they don’t miss any nasty story on Trump. People see this stuff! And it’s owned by a German publisher.

    I was at the doctor yesterday and waiting around for Xrays….so this little office gal comes into the exam room and is fiddling with the battery-driven paper dispenser (God forbid, we’d have to PULL on the paper, right?)…she’s having trouble with it so the GUY who’s a tech there, a young Hispanic guy, is kind of talking to me and kind of helping HER!
    Minutes later, she sees he’s dumped batteries in the trash and chides him “Don’t forget the ENVIRONMENT~!”
    They both walk out together and I’m following them….I hear HIM say “Climate change…ya, when other countries are doing NOTHING, we’re supposed to not put batteries in the trash?”

    I loved it, so I said to him “You were SO right on that….other countries like China and India don’t give a darn and WE are destroying our economy because of it” His eyes widened and he nodded his head in agreement!

    I loved it 🙂 I never miss a chance, my friends!! 🙂


  29. MAL says:

    Z, some years back I had a whole bunch of solar lights in front and back, so when I bought ABOUT 50 new batteries, I put the old ones in a bag, then handed it to the driver the day he picked up our trash. You know what he did with it? THREW IT IN THE BACK WITH THE REST OF THE TRASH!
    So much for the environment


  30. geeez2014 says:

    MAL…of COURSE! I do the same thing! YEARS ago, living in Munich, I saw green, blue, white, yellow, etc., TRASH cans at the end of each street…for glass, for paper, for whatever…..They told me “Ya, you should use them, but this is worthless!” 🙂
    It’s all BS.

    There isn’t ANYBODY more hopeful of a clean world environment…aren’t we all? But the way the Left’s going about it, ignoring any input from specialists who have different input, etc., is NUTS and only is creating a backlash from the RIght to where the Right looks uncaring and the Left looks like CRUSADER RABBIT. WRONG WRONG WRONG! TYPICAL RIGHT. Until we meet together and decide we’re NOT going to destroy our economy due to climate, we’ll be nowhere but …destroyed.

    YES, they are DEFINITELY worried he’ll get elected!!!! Look what they’re doing to DeSantis because HE’s doing so well and very likely will run if Trump doesn’t! And look how they’re treating Musk just for buying Twitter to promote free speech again!? OH, they’re WILD.

    MAGA is a very dirty word, according to the Left….but I agree with you here: It is NOT negative to MOST Americans, a middle class of which was doing about $5K better each year, gas prices low, borders closed…OH, GOD, how I WISH for those days!!!!

    DESantis can’t lose, in my opinion. Sadly, Trump could.

    Z, my point was I don’t believe most reasonable people are buying it. They know better, especially with all the excuses Biden keeps coming up with about why prices on everything are soaring. How about the latest person switching from Dem to GOP…..Elon Musk? It reminds me of a popular song in the 1940’s called “I’M BEGINNING TO SEE THE LIGHT”.


  39. Baysider says:

    LOVE that t-shirt 🙂

    “How they couldn’t see IT WAS WORKING?” My contention is they see it IS working. We just wildly disagree on what ‘working’ means. For us it means setting the table to best allow things go smoothly for the most people to seek optimal outcomes through legal means. For them it means clogging up the works until we destroy the machinery of the Republic and they swoop in to control everything.

    Corey Lynn just wrote at Corey’s Digs “they’re coming at us from every possible angle, and whether we’re talking about biosecurity, finance, housing, health care, energy, transportation [yeah, there are guys who want to shut down all shipping transport starting in 2030] or food, all the changes we’re now seeing have one goal, and that is to force compliance with a totalitarian slave system.” Since “progressive” is aggressively anti-freedom, that shoe fits this goal.


  40. geeez2014 says:

    BAYSIDER…GREAT T Shirt, for sure!!

    “It was working” whether the Left thought so or not. And I believe a VERY VERY small percentage of AMericans don’t see it is NOT WORKING today, even those who mostly didn’t get it during Trump’s admin.
    Only the lefty leadership is intent on ‘swooping in to control everything’….Most Americans don’t like clogged up works when it comes to their families. Only the VERY VERY RICH can smugly set their caps on destroying the Republic because they won’t suffer.

    I predict the worse things get, the more Dems turn Republican…and from the stats I’m reading, it’s happening already……..albeit slowly, Hispanics, Blacks, etc….Independents, too, from what I just read today.
