Is "republican piece of shit" a socially acceptable term?
I was brought up never to call people names and that included racial slurs (and this was in Texas in the 50's). It was drummed into me that those terms were demeaning and were just not done, because all people should be treated with dignity. However, I am thinking that this term: "republican piece of shit" is not demeaning but just a descriptive, realistic term. Where is Ms. Manners when one needs her?

8. I hear ya!
I have no intention of being nice, and the namecalling may be juvenile to some, but that's how these fascist leaning pigs have managed to demonize liberal or progressive or just decent human being.

The gloves are off and pissin' 'em off is sport for me now.

For example, Tom Delay, rpos congressman.

33. You know that is probably the saddest statement and the most basic
evil that the bushies have done. They have robbed us of the ability to have a different viewpoint without hate, of standing up for our beliefs with honor and being acknowledged for that fact even if one disagrees. We have become a nation of hate and discord and disrespect.

And it would be nice to be able to argue a point in a dignified way. But I live in a "red" county, surrounded by "Bush is great a President" ,"God bless America" types. And any time I try to discuss issues with these morans, I get an ear full of childish, "Well Clinton this and that", "Hillary Billary", and other non sense. It'll drive you to distraction.

43. My daughter was almost in tears when we left but we have many ties and
lots of land in Texas so we will (at least I will) stay and try to make things better. (She was talking to the taxi driver on the way to airport about staying.) What I am wondering is why our folks back in the 1800's didn't keep traveling on west.

24. "Turd world nation". Extremely clever. You know I am a rancher and a
gardner and the use of anything as productive as manure with the repukes just does not seem right. Perhaps I should find another term.

60. Well, to be honest, there are times....
Kind of like late fall or early spring in farm country when they fertilize the fields that the smell of the GOP does roll over Minnesota. It seems to be worse lately, either that or my neighbors sewer is backed up....

In general, I think most Minnesotans see through the BS that the GOP spews, or at least I hope they do.

64. I love manure and what it does to increase the fertility of the land so it
is probably much too good a term to use on repukes. Manure enriches the soil and increases productivity. We all know that that does not go along with anything the repukes do. We need another word to describe them.

55. It's not good manners...
Calling people foul names in public is never good manners. I only get away with it by 1)not caring about good manners and 2) smacking anyone who tells me to moderate my language.

However, I object to that foul and vicious characterization you make. There are some fairly decent moderate Repubs. Wouldn't invite 'em home for dinner, but I can certainly work with 'em.

For aesthetic reasons I'd suggest "brain-dead conservative ratfuck bastard". But that's only my own opinion - although I think it has a certain eloquence and style....

Khash.

Actually, most people would not consider me "the socially elite" of DU, more like that gross thing you have to step over in the gutter. However this does give me a certain.... hmm, insight?.... into what names to call people. Definitely, "ratfuck bastard". Trust me, never fails.

I'm almost willing to recommend "cocksucker", except I've always considered that a compliment....

67. And they shouldn't
We all play our parts and do our very best. I'm a foul mouthed difficult guy who makes trouble. You are a lady (with all that implies).

I can't do what you do and you can't do what I do. But we combine our very different styles and skills and we work together. That's so cool!

So I do what I do and you do what you do and we grin at each other over that great divide.

Khash.
(If you met me in real life... I don't use that kind of language. I am prim and proper and oh so polite. You'd be wondering why I just don't loosen up a bit! Seriously.)
