Merriam Webster definition of retarded.

slow or limited in intellectual or emotional development or academic progress
In other words, it does not refers just to those who suffer a mental disability.

Pose the anti-rights crowd this question...

"I am willing to die to defend my constitutional rights, are you willing to die trying to take them?"

The usual response is crickets...

I just wish that the guys who argue pro-gun (and I am certainly pro-gun) had as much or more knowledge about guns and ballistics as they think they do. I once worked part time in a gun shop for several years and it was unbelieveable how many of our customers would spout off total untruths about guns. They believed all of the myths. Just to give you some examples: "The 300 Savage is just as powerful as the 300 Win. mag.," "A 30-30 is just as powerful as the 30-06," "A .410 holds a real small pattern; much smaller than a 12 gauge," "The straight grip on an English type side by side is designed to allow you to slip your hand back from the front to the rear trigger and instantly change your length of pull." And there were many others. Also, a lot of gun guys speak with very bad grammar. My point is that if someone starts off their pro gun auguement with untrueisms and bad grammar, then why would the anti-gun guy take him seriously in the first place? He has lost all credibility before he even starts.

Really? Please explain how every single special education professor I had going to 4 different schools ( 1 under grad and 3 grad programs) could possibly be wrong about this? Please don't tell me you worked at a camp one summer....
The word( which when used in the short is a derogatory description of a slow learner) means exactly that. A Person who suffers a learning disorder....

Here is a dictionary definition:

re·tard
/riˈtärd/

Verb
Delay or hold back in terms of progress, development, or accomplishment.

Noun
offensive. A mentally handicapped person (often used as a general term of abuse).

If you can't understand now, have someone read it to you...very slowly.

I take it you didn't read my post that had the Webster's definition. Should I read it for you?

Cmon folks, This shouldnt turn into an argument about definitions; intent means more in this case and I doubt anyone was trying to bash Individuals with Developmental Disabilities here. I make up all kinds of words that taken at face value could be construed as derogatory but thats because of the recipients perception, not my assertion.

I will say, Ive got a number of friends and a grandson who are DD and they arent nearly as phucked up as most of the Liberals are that I know so ive stayed away from the Lib-t@rd nickname. Maybe Libturd might be a better one to use, the intent is clear on that although I know some turds out there that might find that offensive as well!
