Question About The Boston Tea Party and The American Revolution

Post by Missouri_Rebel »

Ah, never mind. I have my answer all over the t.v. tonight. Maybe Chris 'Tingle up his leg' Matthews knows the answer also, but I doubt it.

I applaud the New Englanders who fight against tyranny. Both foreign AND domestic. The rest of the country will follow.

Germany's unforgivable crime before the Second World War was her attempt to extricate her economy from the world's trading system and to create her own exchange mechanism which would deny world finance its opportunity to profit.

Basically a bunch of people somewhere threw some tea into a harbour (spelling [:D] ) cause they got their knickers in a twist about some such rubbish and the British were a tad upset by it...thence was born the American Revolution.

Us New Englanders are rabble rousers [:)]
But when Territories are acquired in regions where there are differences in language, customs, and laws then great good fortune and much hard work are required to hold them.

It was a bunch of Englishmen dressed in native garb -- so no "knickers"? -- who threw East India tea into Boston harbor in protest of taxes on it and other needed items w/o any representation in England.

Last I heard, the English gov't annually sends the Commonwealth of Mass a bill for that tea, which the Commonwealth returns unpaid.

Basically the Royal Rooters found their tickets sold so McGreevy led the charge into the stands and put the game on hold - in order that truck loads of Chinese novelty merchants could sell cheap sh*t along the banks of Boston Harbor outside a big aquarium and pester passers by with shouts of "wanna go on big duck ride?"

Two, three, four...

GO SOX!

No politics, please (yes, the original Tea Party is a historical event, but the original poster was clearly speaking of current events). With that said, I do like tea. Locking this up.
