LIBERALS WITH AN ATTITUDE: PROGRESSIVES

Over at HuffPo, David Sirota blogs http://www.huffingtonpost.com/david-sirota/whats-the-difference-bet_b_9140.html on the difference between liberals and progressives.

"It seems to me that traditional "liberals" in our current parlance are those who focus on using taxpayer money to help better society. A "progressive" are those who focus on using government power to make large institutions play by a set of rules."

OK. So liberals want to use government, and the monies it collects from all of us, as a tool of social engineering - oops, I mean the betterment of society - and progressives want to use the same power to bully corporations into doing the social engineering.

So a progressive is an entrepreneurally oriented mobster with a liberal agenda... I feel so much better now that we've cleared that up.
