Cedar Rapids Group Plans "Tea" Party
(yes - that's where the quotes are supposed to go)
A Cedar Rapids group will do a symbolic tea dumping into the Cedar River on Saturday because state officials won’t let them use the real thing.Of course, the Boston Revolutionaries didn't feel the need to ...well... ask the Government for permission to protest the Government.
An anti-tax group wanted to pitch in real tea like the Bostonian revolutionaries opposed to England’s tea taxes.
Good thing, I suppose - since I imagine they'd have received the same 'No' .
"...the Cedar Rapids Tea Party will dump dechlorinated tap water or riverwater from buckets labeled “tea,”..."So - they'll also be providing their own 'strength-of-protest' analogy... quite considerate of them, really.
