[ltr]5. Disagree on substance & outcomes. On how their views impact country as a whole. Don't disagree based on ugly characterization of a group[/ltr]

[ltr]7. Denying socio- eco context to entire groups. Imo going against everything progressives are supposed to be about: understanding ALL people[/ltr]

Yes. I’ve seen and heard too many nominal progressives doing just this. The first step to winning majorities in coming elections is to stop doing it.

Sheeple is the plural of sheep. And it rhymes with people. And it seems to be used a lot nowadays but I feel sure I made the word up years and years ago...when I was about 15 and all cocky and teen-angst, because I'd never heard it before but I thought of it while I was stoned one night and it màde me laugh for about twenty minutes and everyone I told thought it was a great word  Laughing

Hahahah chuckling now over the memory

Sheep is the plural of sheep.

Ahhh....but a sheeple is apparently a cross between a sheep and a person, see, Eddie has taught me well.  Cool

Hahahah the word "sheeple" is a cross between sheep and people! Or more accurately, sheeple are the people who act like sheep thereby making them sheeple.
