Sometimes it is hard to figure out who the real jerks are.
If you ever played a game of basketball with your friends as a kid, then you probably know both of these jerks. You've got the guy who thinks that everything that happens to him is a foul, but he never fouls anyone else and the guy who gets sick of it so he takes his ball and goes home. The kid who always thinks he got fouled never considers it to be his fault that the other guy took his ball and went home, and the kid who went home didn't consider the other kids who had to deal with the jerk and are now left standing around on a basketball court with no ball looking for something else to do. But what in the world does any of this have to do with facebook and taxation?
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
There is no better example of how the left can hijack a language than the word gay. This word, which now carries a far different meaning than it's original usage implied, is a case study in understanding how the act of redefining a word can play out. The grammatical manipulation of this word has been executed to such a flawless degree that many homosexuals would likely be offended if they understood what they were actually saying about themselves when they take on the name. Recent ad campaigns against usage of the word in other ways show the disingenuousness of the LGBT community as well. It is for this reason that I decided to include this word in our liberal lexicon. It doesn't really fit in otherwise, as you either know the liberal meaning of the word or you live under a rock.
More specifically, equal opportunity.
Equal is a simple word. Chances are, you are very familiar with it. You probably use it on a regular basis. If you are a student, you may often use the word when verbalizing a math problem. If you are an expert in your field, perhaps you remind people from time to time that they are not your equal. If you are on a diet, you may even put some of it in your coffee, but that is a topic for a different discussion. If you are a liberal, you have no earthly idea as to the real meaning of the word. You think you do, but you have screwed this word up so badly that there is no possible way that you could understand it. That's why it has become the first entry into our Liberal Lexicon. Equal. Dictionary dot com describes it as follows.
