It's ok csw...I asked how he defined it and explained it...


not that I would necessarily agree. I'm thinking more that these are concepts of interpretations of "pet labels" used by both sides, which is confusing in itself. Also, I still think that by using these terms it automatically signals something "bad" and so both sides jump on them and then they somehow become main stream in a definition but are not applied in the same way but only in that one sides application.

Whatever that means that I just said. I will be more clear....I'm tired of them and find them silly and confusing and our leaders should be able to actually explain in depth what they are meaning when they are speaking. But to hear McConnell using "woke" that seems meaningless to me. And Kemp whining about "cancel culture" to explain why we on the other side are against his voter suppression is just stupid. If he has a real point to make, then make it already!
