Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Liberal"

The meaning of "Liberal" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does If liberals are so f**king smart come they lose goddamn always! mean?
A: No problemo. Bad words are the easiest in English! 😁 The nuance is 99.9% of the time more emotion, often negative. But sometimes it can be positive. For example:

Yeah. (Positive)
F**k yeah. (Really positive)
Motherf**king yeah! (Extremely positive)
And so on...

Also, here's a trick to help you out. 🙂 The vast majority of the time the bad words don't add any meaning, so there is zero reason to focus on them in a sentence. Some people, because they're angry, or trying to be funny, can have a sentence mostly be composed of bad words. Take those bad words out, and all you're doing is changing the emotion. The meaning is the same.

A: It means that the word they're using to describe something isn't exact or isn't the best word to describe it but it more or less, kind of describes the thing they're talking about. I think here they're talking about projects? So whatever is being described has a few qualities that mean it could be considered a project but the writer feels that it's also very different from what you would normally consider a project, and so he uses the term without meaning that it's 100% the same as a standard project. Does that make sense?
