Protest of Obama's Galactic-Deficit-Budget Deemed...

...'Too Environmentally Unfriendly'.

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.

An anti-tax group wanted to pitch in real tea like the Bostonian revolutionaries opposed to England’s tea taxes.
Of course, the Boston Revolutionaries didn't feel the need to ...well... ask the Government for permission to protest the Government.

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.

(Apparently, these Iowans aren't conversant in their Arlo Guthrie.)

  1. That is so incredibly nutless as to be pointless. Ptheh.

  2. Yea, I think I would dump tea anyway and say 'screw you'.

    WERE GONNA HAVE A PROTEST AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT!!! Well, if it's OK with them that is....


We reserve the right to delete comments, but the failure to delete any particular comment should not be interpreted as an endorsement thereof.

In general, we expect comments to be relevant to the story, or to a prior comment that is relevant; and we expect some minimal level of civility. Defining that line is inherently subjective, so try to stay clear of insulting remarks. If you respond to a comment that is later deleted, we may take your response with it. Deleting your comment isn't a personal knock on you, so don't take it as such.

We allow a variety of ways for commenters to identify themselves; those who choose not to do so should take extra care. Absent any prior context in which they may be understood, ironic comments may be misinterpreted. Once you've earned a reputation for contributing to a conversation, we are likely to be more tolerant in those gray areas, as we'll understand where you're coming from.
