    so I don't need to be lectured by you.

    i am aware of how Obamacare originated.  I am aware that terms like "queer" are being repurposed.

    i also have a lot of experience in talking to conservatives, thank you.  I cut them a lot more slack in the way they express themselves because I am trying to find common ground with them.

    my point is about how I expect to be addressed by someone who claims to be on my side.

    not only that, the terms Obamacare and queer were redefined by people belonging to the groups being addressed.  Someone from the outside cannot come in and tell them "I'm redefining this negative term for you and you need to accept it."

    i was just trying to tell you what the norms are for this community, and I was respectful.  You did not bother to return the respect.  I will judge you by your lack of respect as well as by your determination to use a word that is considered insulting by many people here.  That is, in fact, the whole point of a shibboleth.  it indicates what side you are actually on.

    using the term "Democrat" in the way that Republicon propagandists do is a small way of refusing to abide by dK community standards.

    if you refuse to abide by community standards in bigger ways, you will not last long here

    Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.
