Thank you for raising my awareness to the slang term Tea bagger; I am new to political debate having been lately enraged to comment by the recent actions of the first term members of the house of representatives who are affiliated with the tea movement.Coolbrucelong wrote:Here is how the tea baggers do business...pay to play
Are you able to discuss topics such as the magnitude of the federal budget without recourse to name calling and sexual slurs?
Thinking back, I may have first heard the term on Fox news and took it as a generally accepted monicker in political circles for a member of the Tea Party.
To my embarrassment, I must admit that I do not travel is circles where the slang term Tea bagger is used in general conversation.
But as a result of your post however, I researched the term's slang usage and now in an effort to further conversation not impeded by unintended recrimination and embarrassment resolve to remove that phrase from the dialog.
I apologize for any slight implied in the term and assure you no slight was intended.
I do admit to having a good laugh as an embarrassed reaction when the meaning of the slang term became know to me.
