I am old enough to remember when conservative businessmen had real contempt for those who "never had to meet a payroll", did not honor contracts, ducked obligations through bankruptcy, or failed to pay bills on time. It would seem that these actions are the mainstay of modern-day conservative activities, or at least those claiming the title in the political arena. It's only one way that the use of the word has changed dramatically these days, but certainly is confusing to those who remember what it used to mean.
