    Meanwhile in a school in germany

    Kraftwerk cover video by German school children is making people cry | Europe | News | The Independent

    Beats the hell out of playing those stupid recorders I got at school.

    Come to think of it videos and you tube didn't existback then, I feel old now.

    I liked that.

    Reminds me while growing up of what the progressives thought of the working class.

    We're charging our battery
    And now we're full of energy
    We are the robots
    We are the robots
    We are the robots
    We are the robots

    We're functioning automatik
    And we are dancing mechanik
    We are the robots
    We are the robots
    We are the robots
    We are the robots

    Ja tvoi sluga (=I'm your slave)
    Ja tvoi Rabotnik (=I'm your worker)

    Ja tvoi sluga
    Ja tvoi Rabotnik

    We are programmed just to do
    Anything you want us to
    We are the robots

    We're functioning automatic
    And we are dancing mechanic
    We are the robots

    Ja tvoi sluga (=I'm your slave)
    Ja tvoi Rabotnik (=I'm your worker)

    We are the robots

    What's happened in america has progressive become synonymous with fascist or something?

    What does the word progressive mean in america?

    Who wouldn't want to be progressive and move forward?

    Progressive is just another name for a commie-pinko who wants to channel Hitler and rule the world through World Socialism, where everybody lives off the back of the one surviving working man.

    We Americans now pride ourselves in our ignorance and want to return to the world where some people knew their place and didn't try to move above it. A country where Opportunity only knocked on the right doors, Where starving people did so quietly and with respect for their betters. A country where people were proud to work 6 day weeks, from dawn to dusk, and children could get jobs just like their parents had. A country where healthcare was only for the men who could properly pay for it.
    Let's make America GREAT again.

    Don't listen to Lars. He must be joking. Of course, he is a republican. Progressive means what it means anywhere else. Moving forward while dealing with today's realities. There are plenty of us, but through gerrymandering districts we are not well represented.

    OK, you caught me. I confess. I did add a touch of sarcasm to that post.

    Surely Nazism & Socialism are opposite ends of the political scale?

    Surely the word "Progressive" simply means moving onward. Whether that progression is for the better or not is another matter entirely.

    It has been my observation that countries who claim to be Socialist (any kind of) or Democratic, have seldom been either, and they have seldom been even close to a Republic. That was particularly true of certain mid 20th Century nations who stirred up a lot of trouble.
