    Reminds me of my last tour of duty. Me, a ground side Marine, finding myself in the Second Marine Aircraft Wing. By the time I had been there a month I had compiled a Glossary of Acronyms and Terms (GOAT), so I could keep up with all the Easily Recognizable Military Acronyms. (ERMA's)

    It's recent abbreviation for "anti-fascist" that has come to mean anything that you want to protest falls in that category. Just a handy lumping for those that are against whatever isn't in their list of concerns, regardless of importance to the rest of the world.
