Novel idea, but not recommended for use to the government?

. Teabags my arse, we need to get down to their offices ourselves, IN PERSON, with buckets of tar and Feathers. Our founding fathers warned us who we would be ruled by if we allowed it, they also told us how to stop it as well as give us examples by their actions...
So while you send your tea bags or tea tags or manure or whatever other SAFE protest you have remember this. Your safe protest to government infringements, spending and tyranny TODAY ensures the enslavement of our children TOMORROW...
Sleep on that.
Dear Mrs. XXXXXX:
Thank you for contacting me about my position on taxes. Taxes impact the lives of all Americans, and I am doing all I can make the system simple, efficient, and fair. I believe that we need to simplify and reduce taxes in a responsible way. Our working families deserve a break at a time when wages are stagnating, health care costs are skyrocketing, and jobs are being moved overseas. It is a matter of common sense and simple fairness. As your Senator, I am working hard to bring middle class families tax relief. One of the first bills I co-sponsored after coming to Washington was S. 614, the Middle Class Opportunity Act. This bill would have increased the child tax credit, consolidated and boosted tax credits for higher education, expanded eligibility for credits for families caring for older relatives, and extended relief from the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT). Unfortunately, the bill was not taken up by the full Senate before the 110th Congress expired in December 2008. However, I believe that we cannot continue to manage the budget in the same reckless way as we have for the past several years. The last year we had a budget surplus was 2001. Since then the federal government has run record deficits that have beholden us to foreign creditors and are jeopardizing our children’s future. We owe roughly $1 trillion to China alone. And for what have we run these deficits? To pay for tax cuts for the wealthiest among us. Over half of President Bush's tax cuts went to the richest ten percent of the population, the very portion that thrived the most during his administration. It is unfair and irresponsible to endanger the fiscal health of the nation for the benefit of a privileged few, and I do not support tax polices that do so. I am proud that the budget resolution Congress passed last year will balance the budget by 2012 without increasing taxes. While it is not perfect, I believe it is a good first step toward reestablishing fiscal discipline and putting working people first. I will continue to fight for fairness in future tax debates. Thank you again for contacting me. I hope you will continue to reach out with your thoughts and advice. All best, Senator Claire McCaskill

...politicians are already at the top of the list.
I was afraid this would happen, that is why I didn't do it, there must be an alternative,
Although she most likely just wanted to be a bitch,
Note: Do not send teabag.
Clip the string at the bag, send the paper tag, with string attached. NOT the BAG, but the TAG.
They will get the message...
