    A dime in street drug lingo is ten bucks. There is a difference between gambling and drugs, dude. I'm just sayin'.

    Never bought any drugs but have been around gamblers. So what would be the drug street lingo for a thousand bucks? Curious.

    I don't know what it's like where you live but here if someone runs for the nomination in the Republican Primary, has "Republican" on their campaign literature and advertising, or stands for an election with the words "Republican Party" next to their name, we call them Republicans.

    I use the words "so-called" before "Tea Party" because I don't want anyone to think I am talking about anything other than a Republican; just a wing of that political party that most understand as a subset of the larger group. It is not an easily identifiable political position like someone being Pro-Life or against capital punishment nor is it a subjective adjective like conservative, moderate, or liberal. It is a movement within a specific party that is difficult to define and hard to use as a label since it is rarely taken by a candidate as self-identification but is used often by a constituency within the Republican Party for that purpose.

    Hope that clears things up.

    Two can play that game. Let's just call most Democrats what they are and that is left wing liberals. The term progressive is a more acceptable term but there are very few liberals politicians that are so called moderate Democrats. The East and West coast Democrats are hardened leftists who are for big government, more taxes, more spending, anti-drilling, more regulations, socialized meds, wealth distribution, etc. etc.

    Sounds like juvenile equivocation. The Tea Party candidate is exactly that. Apparently to your mind, if the candidate is anything but a left wing loon DIMoRAT or registered Republican, they are "so called" Tea Party candidates.
