Well the actuall name is Sodapop, and I some times call it sode, pop, or sodapop. Though very often I call it Dr. Pepper, mostly because that is what I mostly drink.

P.S. I think only people down in the deep south call pop Coke (who aren't actually drinking a Coke).

People in Georgia do that because Coke started there. I remember calling all blue jeans "Levis" when I was young.

It's a marketing person's dream when your brand becomes synonymous with the object. Kleenex comes to mind. Xerox had it for awhile.

I grew up calling it pop. When I started to travel I switched to soda.

"Coke" is like "Kleenex" they are both synonymous with what they provide in real life... Kinda like "teabaggers!"

Similar to the 87 members of congress who called themselves T-Party reps, I have the gonads to register and post my convictions/principles under my moniker for anyone and everyone to see. Unlike you, who like the spendocraps in Wisconsin, run and hide behind all kinds of different names so you can't be held responsible or accountable. This has become the mantra of those who have no conviction or backbone, the Spendocrap Party..

I realize that it's a challenge for the teabagger to figure out that it's the same person posting using different creative names daily. Bonanza is today's in case that you were wondering. Not hiding just having a little fun with the teabaggers.

You made two false assumptions, Number one, I am not a member of the Tea Party, but I do like it when they stick it to the Community Organizer playing President, and two, that you actually think your clever enough to be creative!

Anyone with a brain (listen up teabaggers) knows that it's called "soda"
