I'm sure when all is said and done, we will have no doubt have found a scape goat.
Be it the...Muslims, Jews, Africans, Chinese, SARS, pig flu, avian flue, Bush I, Bush II, Obama, Palin, and lately The NWO. [SNIP] man! the list could
go for-godd**n-ever if i wanted it to. It is all but hardwired into the everyday American to blame anyone but themselves.
We sit around mailing tea-bags to Washington as if somehow that accomplishes anything more than a rise in demand for tea production which inevitably
results in higher profits for ( insert tea company here ) which further results in a rise in stock prices for ( said company ). Samuel Adams would
roll over in his [SNIP] grave today if he saw the shallow symbolism, falsely attributed I might add...that is our modern day libertarian tea party
I am unsure if it's naivety or out and out stupidity that has brought us to this point in history. Either way ignorance is no excuse and if it's
good enough for the American legal system, then it's good enough for me. So let me take time out to inform you what the Bost Tea Party was, and how
pathetically insignificant you're tea party is. But for the record if the mass-media consuming population is any indication of our future in America
then let me be the first one in line to tell you that we are totally [SNIP].
On 16 December 1773, a gathering of Boston citizens led by patriot Samuel Adams disguised themselves as Mohawk Indians and boarded three British
ships docked in the Boston Harbor in search of imported tea. These men, armed with axes and tomahawks, chopped open the tea trunks they found onboard
and dumped almost 10,000 pounds (about 4,500 kilograms) of tea into the harbor. This action was taken by the colonists to show their distain at
England's attempt to monopolize the tea market, forcing the colonists to buy their tea from the British East India Company. The Boston Tea Party is
an important event in United States history as it marked the first show of violence by the colonists and cast the first cries for independence in the
Boston area. England had already repealed many of the import taxes on the colonists, but it retained the tea tax to let the colonists know they were
still subject to British rule. After the Tea party, England demanded that the Boston government pay for the tea, but the locals refused. As a result,
British forces closed the Boston harbor for a period of time, further inciting cries for independence. (
Now I don't expect much-if-any of that to resonate with you people. With that said, it still completely mystifies me that you all feel that your
being politicly active by destroying an item you had to purchase yourself. We are in a recession and here you are mailing something you bought, to
someone who wont read it. Don't you think by now there is a universal office policy at all government agencies to throw away all letters even
suspected of having something other than a letter in it.
If you want to make a point. Stop paying your bills. All of them. Stop going to work. Stop purchasing gas. For the love of god stop buying tea. At
least then you would be preserving the ideals of the original tea party. Stop contributing to the system all together. Remember that you are a single
cog in a very large and intricate machine. Individually you are totally insignificant at best. However if enough cogs stop moving the machine breaks
down. We are a union of states and should treat like any other union, by going on a full blown national strike against citizenship and all that it
I assure you that if the majority of americans refuse to work and purchase non essential consumer goods for just one week. All hell would break loose,
the system would essentially go into cardiac arrest. However, there are repercussions to this and they will be swift and intimidating. But if we can
outlast the first wave of heavy handedness buy our government, we can win this. Remember that all government agents are still paid employes, and
without the majority contributing to the system companies will fold, stores will close. So the government can keep printing its fiat currency to pay
the military but it will be useless as they will have nowhere to spend it. We have reached a point of either unifying as a country against tyranny, or
we can sit back as history passes us by. Ether way, our generation will make it into the history books. We either save the nation, or watch it be
destroyed from the inside. We are facilitating our own demise. I can't stand on the soapbox all alone. I need help. You all are that help. -j
**For the record it's 4am here so correcting any grammer at this point would be foolish as I have no intention of correcting it and don't really
care. I wrote this on a whim partially out of anger but mostly out of boredom. So try you best to look passed the misuse of a comma or the obvious
misspelling of words. I realize the article i chose isn't current, but the situation is, and this article was the first one i found on google. I
might be asking to much here but it would be super if someone here had an opinion other than telling me any of the above mentioned things. mmmmkthnx.
