Yeah, I’m just all kinds of sittin’ here coming up with stuff to yell at the world as it passes by my door. Blame the fact that I was up all night thinking and playing Epic Pet Wars.
I may agree with many things that many of the Tea Party people are trying to accomplish. But they’re not just making statements about how to change what’s different. They’re acting many times with hate. I’m all for limited government (ya think?!?) and better fiscal policy. But I’m not one for mean slogans scrawled on posterboard.
And I’m also over this whole “glorifying the terrorists of the past” thing. Because that’s what the Boston Tea Party was. Terrorism.
I do have one idea though. It makes a statement about the direction we’re headed with all these bailouts and government health care schemes. It poetically echoes the whole Boston Tea Party without being terroristic AND making a modern point.
Well, they are. And if you Tea Party People want to step up your game you’ll stop with all this Tea stuff and start doing demonstrations where you put Mentos in Diet Coke and talk about being overrun by hot air. And how government is boiling over with too much interference in private life. It’s perfect.
*Popular beverage of the day? Check
*Protesting a tax thereon? Check
*Making a statement about limited government? Check
*Slightly crazy looking? Check
*Cruel and violent ? No check.
So it’s a little bit messy, yes. Just hose down after you get everything all gross and sticky. You’ll do one better than any Congress in recent memory.
