134. True. Although I have crossed swords with many progressives.
There are many that I respect as being the real deal, even when my veins are popping out of my neck from anger at their written volleys.

But there are some "progressives" among us that are anything but. The issue that enrages me is that those people are treated with more respect than died in the wool warriors for a fair and just society are treated.
