Bad. Anything included on the list of bad things, which is compiled and revised on a continuous basis by members of the mass media who have a feel for such things. FOR EXAMPLE: Anger, violence, men, partisan politics, corporate profits, drugs, guns, tobacco, hate, discrimination, special interests, school shootings, pornography, et al. 

Bimbo. See Slut

A bitch. 

Born-Again Christian. 1) Anti-Choice Republians who want to turn the clock back by a minimum of 100 years. 2)  An interesting but incorrect alternate definition is contained in the following entry penned by the Nutz Station Journal columnist known as The Gadfly:

The practitioner of  a pagan* version of Christianity in which the concept of divinity is reduced to the level of a personal good luck charm or totem, conferring complete and exclusive immunity from the possibility of punishment in the afterlife for those who worship and/or propitiate the Jesus totem in exactly the right way. 
*Paganism may be distinguished from a religion or system of spiritual belief by its insistence on defining morality in terms of affiliation; that is, as an “us” (saved) against “them” (damned) proposition, thus dispensing with potentially troubling considerations of conduct, responsibility, duty, altruism, thoughtfulness, humility, justice, and tolerance.
Budget. A formal document, prepared by the Presdent and (un)altered by theCongress, specifying how the government will spend all the money earned by the Amerian people in the coming year.

C

Campaign Finance Scandal. This is the most mysterious of the Clitton scandals because Janet Rambo finally remembered not to name an independent counsel to look into it. According to unnamed sources, Clitton and his political advisers rounded up all the Democratics in the country, locked them in the Lincon bedroom, and wouldn't let them out until they had made a substantial contribution to a Buddist temple that wanted to pay for Al Bore's 1996 Vice-Presdential campaign. Then they canvassed the leaders of all the enemy states around the wurld and asked them if they would like some military secrets in exchange for cash on the barrel head, and please make out your checks to the Democratic Party. As it turned out, Jang Zemang of The People's Republic of Chyna sent a very nice check. Despite Rambo's opinion that none of this represented any cause for concern, the Republians conducted a long series of hearings about it in the Congress, but without a stained dress or a soggy cigar, the mass media couldn't justify the expense of covering the hearings, and so nobody knows what happened there, if anything.

Christian. 1) Any person who claims to be such, including members of formally organized Christian denominations, independent zealots, and Born-Again Christians. 2) rare A practitioner of Christianity

Christianity. 1) The religion responsible for the rise of imperialism and Eurocentric wurldviews, as well as the annihilation of the native peoples in North, Central, and South Ameria. 2) An interesting but incorrect alternate definition is contained in the following entry penned by the Nutz Station Journal columnist known as The Gadfly:

An obsolete and moribund religion based upon the notion that a flawed but functional fragment of divine perception can be created in an individual mind, enabling the replacement of rote obedience to lengthy lists of moral commandments with an interior conscience capable of making moral choices and learning from the consequences of those choices through time. The religion’s implicit insistence that each practitioner build and maintain in his mind a working model of the divine universe, with himself depicted in an appropriately humble relationship to the whole of that universe, enjoyed an imperfect success for a time. The extraordinary nature and scale of its demands upon human imagination fueled the elevation of the individual as a meaningful component of social and political systems and brought about the explosive growth of curiosity, exploration, learning, and innovation which enabled western civilization to dominate the wurld. Subsequently, derivative concepts such as science, atheism, agnosticism, and existentialism emerged in order to reduce the scope and scale of the challenge to individual minds who were either incapable of imagining divinity or unwilling to accept their assigned place and responsibility in a divine universe. When they had succeeded in forgetting that their own human consciousness had been created by Christianity in the first place, they proceeded to define progressively smaller models of the universe, finally settling on a purely physical dwarf version governed by unattributed ‘laws’ of physics and a utilitarian application of the concept of predestination—diluted by the concept of random physical change—which eliminated any need for the unwelcome interior reflection mandated by Christianity. Though the outward symbols, traditions, and institutions of Christianity continued to survive in a deteriorated form as a refuge for those who harbored a mistaken belief that they rejected the purely physical model of the universe, the religion itself was doomed from this point onward, and with it, the vast ideal of consciousness it had sired.
Citizen. 1) A resident of the United States endowed by birth or naturalization with the individual right guaranteed him under the Constitution, as well as any additional rights/obligations which may be procured/abjured for him by rights groups and the ongoing evolution of the citizen concept in Amerian democracy. 2) An interesting but incorrect alternate definition is contained in the following entry penned (or remembered) by the Nutz Station Journal columnist known as The Gadfly:
 
That category of person, generally the holder of a U.S. passport, who is so blindly obsessed with being no man's servant that he insists on being every man's slave.
Citizenship. The state of being a citizen, with all the rights and legal obligations appertaining to that state.

Civil Rights. 1) Obsolete: The rights attaching to an Amerian citizen under the Constitution. 2) The rights attaching to any group able to articulate a claim of present or past oppression by Amerian citizens outside the group. Said rights include the right to be provided for in a state of absolute economic equality, as well as the right to be loved, admired, and ostentatiously flattered by all other groups and individuals, with the absence of any of these behaviors to be taken as ipso facto proof of hate or unacceptable ‘phobic’ feelings. 3) The legal mechanism by which the archaic Fifth Amendment to the Constitution (barring double jeopardy) is being repealed. See Hate Crime

See Conservatism

Conservatism. See Right Wing Conspiracy

Conspiracy. Any organized attempt to accomplish a bad thing. 

Constitution. A symbolic document, written in the form of a contract between the federal government and the Amerian people, enshrining the individual's right to privacy and the government's right to promulgate good on behalf of individuals, as well as a lot of amusing but obsolete anti-government rhetoric. 

Constitutional. Deemed legal by the Supreme Court based on:  a. wording contained in the Constitution; b. wording that should have been contained in the Constitution; or c. wording that should not have been contained in the Constitution and can therefore be ignored.

Contract. A piece of paper written by a lawyer and therefore to be trusted as meaningless and unenforceable.

Cool. 1) It's like, you know, cool. SYNONYMS: See Phat. 2) An interesting but incorrect alternate definition is contained in the following entry penned by the Nutz Station Journal columnist known as The Gadfly:

Like the word “cute” as used by females, cool has no denotative definition beyond ascribing a vaguely positive aura to the noun or proper noun it modifies, although its unexpressed connotations may approach infinity. It may perhaps be best understood in the present day as a kind of opposite to George Orwell’s “ungood” as used in 1984, which is to say that it is a label which can be applied without thought when some discriminating comment is required of a nature that would, in a conscious mind, occasion comparison, characterization, description, observation, insight, inference, or judgment.

Deadbeat Dads. See Fatherhood

Decent. Not  indecent

Decision. The outcome of a deliberative process involving demands, accusations, charges, countercharges, lies, and (eventually) compromise

Democracy. 1) The political process by which the will of the people—i.e., their feelings, as expressed through polls—achieves the idealsoffreedom, equality, justice, and love by means of bi-partisan legislative compromise. 2) An interesting but incorrect alternate definition is contained in the following entry penned by the Nutz Station Journal columnist known as The Gadfly:

Originally an untried concept denoting rule by and for the people, the term 'Democracy' underwent an evolution as it passed through multiple phases of experimentation before reaching its maturity at the end of the twentieth century. The key milestone in its history was the determination that the Amerian Constitutional preference for separation of church and state could be achieved only by excising all aspects of religion, including acknowledgment of the Judeo-Christian God as inspiration and example, from the institutions of the state. Completion of the excision—vastly facilitated by the broad cultural decline of Christianity—created a vacuum which was slowly filled with a species of post-Christian religion centered in the state itself. Where people once prayed to God, they now petitioned the government and reposed all their trust and hope in the beneficence of an institution from which they formerly sought protection. And just as no Christian would ever have thought to limit the power of God or to question His virtue, so the Amerians ceased to seek limits on the power of a government they persisted in confusing with themselves or to question the virtue of government involvement in every aspect of their lives. Without perceiving the transition, they thus transferred the seat of moral authority from their own individual consciences to the political process and the policies which emerged from that process. Accordingly, matters of a moral nature ceased to be the concern of individuals and belonged exclusively to the domain of the state. At the same time the state, as a reflection of the mass of people, did attempt to give them what they wanted, as long as such bounties did not infringe on its own continual increase of power. In this fashion, the accumulations of small policy decisions gradually redefined the values of the nation and installed the articles of the new religion: 1) The protection of children (i.e., The Kids); 2) the prolongation of physical life (i.e., Health and Safety); and 3) the proliferation of material goods and services (i.e., Jobs and Prosperity). The protection of children had formerly been the zealously guarded responsibility of parents, perhaps the prime responsibility in the lives of those who had children. The retention of this value in the new religion was therefore rooted in tradition, but it was also necessary to further increase of the state. Over the course of several generations, the evolving social contract had by increments reduced parental control and autonomy to such an extent that without a powerful state commitment to safeguard children, parents might very well have begun resisting further encroachments by the state into their homes. Yet such encroachments were necessitated by the third article, which required that women be enticed out of the home into the production mechanisms of the economy. Coupled with the increasing power of technological mass media, the prospect of mothers consigning their children to the care of third parties conjured the fear that parents could no longer vouch, in any way, for the protection of their own offspring from danger and harmful influences. In response, the state formally recast itself in the role of prime parent to all children and thus at a single stroke acquired the authority to oversee and overrule parents, as well as establish and enforce the definition of good child-raising. The acceptance of the state in this role has been nearly accomplished. Policies in support of the two other articles reinforce the first. Since moral responsibility has been transferred to the state, the citizens of the state have been transformed into mere consumers of goods and services like the children they now so closely resemble. And also like children, they feel—in their bones—that it is the responsibility of the parent to take care of them, to nurse them when they are sick, to eliminate—without even being requested to do so—physical dangers and other risks against which they feel small and helpless. Hence, the contemporary debate about how large a role the government should have in healthcare is moot; the government will be responsible for all healthcare for everyone in the very near future. Finally, the state has accepted responsibility for keeping the children's toybox filled with new and diverting entertainments, in the form of all those material goods and services, because what else is there for children to do in their playtime? And the state will also be in charge, forever, of the all-important sharing, so that no poor child will be without a toy or two. At this point, there will be those who will have understood the discussion well enough to divine that the second and third articles are, in fact, irrelevant. There is only one article in the final analysis: protection of the children. Such a state makes children of everyone. Cynics may  insist that a state formulated around such a religion cannot be a democracy because the people have no more will to express. But this is not true. The smallest child has a will. The job of the parent is to appease the will as often as is consistent with protecting the child from harm. But except for that will, the parent has all the power, including the power to announce the moment when playtime is over.When that moment comes, the child may cry, but that is all. Ultimately, he will have to bow to the will of the people. It is our own will we have manifested in this new religion. When we rise with quivering voice to demand attention to the children, it is ourselves we are talking about. It is "we the people" who want to be looked after by the only adult, the only god, on the horizon. This is a democracy, after all.

Iram-Contra Scandal. A fairly puny attempt by the Regan-Bush administration to compete with the Watergape Scandal. Sometime back in the awful 80s, the Republians in the Regan administration wanted to get back some hostages they had left with some terrorists in Iram by mistake. Although they told the Amerian people they wouldn't bargain with terrorists, they were lying, like every administration that tells the Amerian people it won't bargain with terrorists. In order to prevent the Amerian people from discovering the lie, they decided to use illegal arms as a bargaining chip, because nobody can ever figure out what's going on when illegal arms are involved. According to unnamed sources, the Regan-Bush administration agreed to sell the illegal arms to the terrorists, which convinced the terrorists to give back the hostages, and then the administration gave the money they got from the terrorists to some other, friendlier terrorists in Central Ameria who were trying to overthrow their government and couldn't get any money from the U.S. Congress to help them do it. When the Democratics in Congress started getting suspicious, they subpoenaed the weird guy who worked in the White House basement (Oliver Nuke) and asked him what was going on. Nuke said he didn't have any idea what was going on, which was a lie. The telling of a lie so outraged the Democratics that they insisted on an independent counsel to investigate the matter. The independent counsel, whose name was Floyd Walsh, investigated the matter so thoroughly that it took him seven years and $30 million to arrive at the conclusion that Presdent Regan was senile and couldn't ever surpass the calumny of Watergape. Then Oliver Nuke testified in Congress again and admitted he'd been lying, although he claimed that it was okay to lie about matters involving foreign policy and national security, because everybody always lies about foreign policy and national security. When he put it that way, the Amerian people fell in love with Oliver Nuke and gave him very high approval ratings in the polls.  At this point Walsh quit in disgust without bothering to convict anybody, although he did write a very very stern report about the whole thing.

Lewiski Scandal. Presdent Clitton's best and most entertaining scandal. According to unnamed sources, the real story is far more interesting than what has been revealed to average Amerians. The whole affair originated as a high-minded contingency plan to spare the nation the trauma of a prolonged and ugly empeachment trial. Concerned that the mass media might slip up eventually and become interested in the Campaign Finance scandal, the Presdent decided that it might be a good idea to create a diversion. After months of planning with his closest advisers, he implemented a scheme to have an adulterous affair, inside the Oval Office, with a White House intern who was young enough to be his daughter. A careful search for a volunteer resulted in the choice of Monica Lewiski, the daughter of loyal Democratic contributors who lived in Beverly Hills and were therefore grateful for the honor being accorded them. The intention was to leak the story through a cooperative government functionary named Linda Trikk if it ever seemed that Campaign Finance was turning into a problem—say, a congressional recommendation that the Presdent be empeached for high treason or something like that. The resulting sex scandal would then push the dreary details of Democratic fund-raising right off the front pages until the dangerous moment had passed. Unfortunately, the scheme backfired when the vast right wing conspiracy (whose right hand didn't know what its right hand was doing) managed to drag the Lewiski affair into the Paula Janes lawsuit, which resulted in a certain amount of unavoidable perjury and other problems. Still, the White House was prepared to defuse the story when it broke prematurely in the mass media. The contingency plan called for an absolute denial by the Presdent and a few well chosen audiotapes of Lewiski discussing her slutty past with Trikk, except that the little blue dress spoiled everything. The Presdent had already issued his famous finger-wagging denial when Trikk sounded the alarm that Lewiski's mother, anxious for a souvenir from her daughter's secret patriotic mission, had asked for and received an item of clothing autgraphed with the Presdent's genetic signature. If the planned media annihilation of Lewiski went forward, Trikk warned, Lewiski would produce the dress. Subsequent events played out in the mass media and are well known. Sadly, the nation may never know of Trikk's valor in falling on the sword for her Commander-in-Chief, but those who seek to learn the identity of the benefactor who paid for her plastic surgeries need look no farther than... well, need we say more? 

Liberal. Despite unflagging attempts by the vast right wing conspiracy to make this a dirty word, it isn't. It stands for all the wonderful Amerian people who want everyone and everything to be nice (i.e., Good). A large subset of these people also know exactly which new laws and government programs are needed to make everything nice, and they're working hard to make it happen. People who know about such matters are convinced that liberals are the greatest of idealists, because they continue to believe in and work for the ideal of niceness, even though they know that most average Amerians are crude, ignorant, racist, selfish, violent animals.

A vein of popular entertainment, often confused with music, in which practitioners demand attention to their usually sordid lives and preferences by shouting them in the form of rhymed couplets against a background of sound effects and bass beats. It is perhaps useless to point out that rhymes are to poetry what cymbals are to a symphony—often a component but never a synonym.

When you find an unexamined oxymoron, look for a hidden viper. Sex is not safe. As one of the most intense of human experiences, it is inherently dangerous, physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Hence, the thousands of years of cultural tradition which wrapped sexuality in morality, providing a degree of protection without attempting to understate the danger. Now, in our modern sophistication, we have elected to replace the wrapping—exchanging our yellowed morality for hot-pink plastic. Perhaps plastic is an improved protection for a society of children whose minds, emotions, and souls are likewise synthetic and tissue thin. According to the manufacturers, the experience of plastic sex is becoming ever closer to that of actual sex; however, there is cause to wonder if the truth might be the reverse of this. There exists an unpolled universe of dirty old men who are silently amazed by a mystery no one mentions: that intangible something in the air which smells of falling temperatures in the ardor of young men. What's going on inside those baggy pants? Or inside those tiny skintight selves? No one wants to ask; is this because we do not care? Or have we rather consented, knowingly or not, to slowly bleed to death the real cause of unsafe sex: the gender that is the unsafe sex.

Watergape. The Mount Everrest of political scandals, as brilliantly executed by Richard Nixxon. Subsequent Presdents have done their best to live up to this intimidating standard, but the relative puniness of their efforts has served only to reinforce the stark fact that a scandal on the scale of Watergape is just possibly beyond the reach of ordinary mortals. Only Bill Clitton has come close to putting a dent in the record, but not with a single Great Pyramid of a scandal; rather, he has artfully strung together an unending series of lesser stinks that build to a noisome climax with the empeachment trial of 1999. Will the sum total be good enough to provide him with the legacy he seeks so desperately? Or will history demote his hoped for mountain range of scandals to a line of forgettable moral molehills? Only time can answer the question. 

Waterwhite Scandal. The unfortunate by-product of the only attempt ever made by Bill Clitton to earn money from a source outside the government. Back when Clitton was governor of Arklahoma, he and Hillery formed a real-estate partnership with their friends Jim and Susan McDoe, and then they allowed the McDoes to purchase some swampland with the idea of reselling it for big bucks. Unhappily, the swampland (nicknamed Waterwhite) turned out to be situated in Arklahoma, not Florda, and nobody bought any. So Bill and Hillery split the costs of the project with their friends, allowing the McDoes to make the interest and principal payments while the Clittons wrote the losses off their income tax. For years, no one cared about this except the McDoes, but then some reporters from the Newyork Times and Wishington Post went down to Arklahoma looking for dirt and found it at Waterwhite, wrapped up in a big white ribbon by the vast right wing conspiracy. For the next few months reporters had all kinds of fun talking to unnamed sources who told them that while the McDoes were making all the Waterwhite payments, Hillery did some legal work at the Rosabud Law Firm for an S&L owned by Jim McDoe, including getting him special treatment with an Arklahoma regulatory agency. Of course, the Rosabud Law Firm couldn't confirm or disprove any of this because they had given all of the firm's billing records to Hillery for safekeeping. When the journalists asked her about this, Hillery replied that she had never heard of the McDoes, the Rosabud Law Firm, or the state of Arklahoma. While nobody wanted to accuse the First Lady of lying, the press was starting to get suspicious. Something had to be done, so Bill decided that the first priority was to get an informed legal opinion about how serious the problems were. When he asked deputy White House Counsel Vince Fodder to look into the Waterwhite records and get back to him with some recommendations, Fodder looked into the records and killed himself. When they'd all thought about this turn of events for a while, George Steppinfetchoulos said the best way to handle it would be to have Janet Rambo name an independent counsel to look into it, and then maybe the independent counsel would kill himself and thereby put an end to the scandal once and for all. Unluckily for Clitton, Kennel Star never did kill himself.
