Hardy Har Har

Anyone want a good laugh? Check this little gem out. It's one of those lists of "facts" that you can find all over the interwebs, but this one is really exhaustive. Apparently "liberals" invented the internet, underwear, and oxygen. Or somesuch.

It would take too much work to straighten out even a tenth of that list and I can't be bothered. Suffice it to say, I don't think the author quite understands the term "liberal" since he connects it with the word "progressive". Those are two different animals.


  1. This guy's got an interesting view of the world.

    In his universe, it would be a bad thing to do away with Obamacare.

    He seems to not realize that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 would have been the Civil Rights Act of 1956 or the Civil Rights Act of 1958 if not for good "liberals' like LBJ.

    Liberal and progressive SHOULD be two different animals, but unfortunately, in today's political climate they ARE more or less equivalent. The classical liberal of years past is now more of a libertarian.

    1. Liberal is liberal. Don't let em hijack a decent term just because "progressive" got a bad name in the early 20th century. I refuse to call them liberal. They can have "commie" if they want though.

    2. Heck, they've hijacked pretty much everything else.
