Tea Bag
> What a wonderful idea, I just wish it had been mine. I have a feeling
> that USPS is going to have a hell of a lot of tea to contend with, after
> all it only costs 42 cents to send a message, hopefully heard round the
> world!!!
> So please mark your Calendars
> There's a storm abrewin'. What happens when good, responsible people
> keep quiet? Washington has forgotten they work for us. We don't work for
> them. Throwing good money after bad is NOT the answer. I am sick of the
> midnight, closed door sessions to come up with a plan. I am sick of
> Congress raking CEO's over the coals while they, themselves, have
> defaulted on their taxes. I am sick of the bailed out companies having
> lavish vacations and retreats on my dollar. I am sick of being told it
> is MY responsibility to rescue people that, knowingly, bought more house
> than they could afford. I am sick of being made to feel it is my
> patriotic duty to pay MORE taxes. I, like all of you, am a responsible
> citizen. I pay my taxes. I live on a budget and I don't ask someone else
> to carry the burden for poor decisions I may make. I have emailed my
> congressmen and senators asking them to NOT vote for the stimulus
> package as it was written without reading it first. No one listened.
> They voted for it, pork and all.
> O.K. folks, here it is. You may think you are just one voice and what
> you think won't make a difference. Well, yes it will and YES, WE CAN!!
> If you are disgusted and angry with the way Washington is handling our
> taxes. If you are fearful of the fallout from the reckless spending of
> BILLIONS to bailout and "stimulate" without accountability and
> responsibility then we need to become ONE, LOUD VOICE THAT CAN BE HEARD
> protest to demand that Congress, the President and his cabinet LISTEN to
> us, the American Citizens. What is being done in Washington is NOT the
> way to handle the economic free fall.
> So, here's the plan. On April 1, 2009, all Americans are asked to send a
> TEABAG to Washington , D.C. You do not have to enclose a note or any
> other information unless you so desire. Just a TEABAG. Many cities are
> organizing protests. If you simply search, "New American Tea Party",
> several sites will come up. If you aren't the 'protester' type, simply
> make your one voice heard with a TEABAG. Your one voice will become a
> roar when joined with millions of others that feel the same way. Yes,
> something needs to be done but the lack of confidence as shown by the
> steady decline in the stock market speaks volumes.
> This was not my idea. I visited the sites of the 'New American Tea
> Party' and an online survey showed over 90% of thousands said they would
> send the teabag on April 1. Why, April 1?? We want them to reach
> Washington by April 15. Will you do it? I will. Send it to; 1600
> Pennsylvania Ave. Washington , D.C. 20500 ..
> Forward this to everyone in your address book. Visit the website below
> for more information about the 'New American Tea Party'. I would
> encourage everyone to go ahead and get the envelope ready to mail, then
> just drop it in the mail April 1. Can't guarantee what the postage will
> be by then, it is going up as we speak, but have your envelope ready.
> What will this cost you? A little time and a 40 something cent stamp.
> What could you receive in benefits? Maybe, just maybe, our elected
> officials will start to listen to the people. Take out the Pork. Tell us
> how the money is being spent. We want TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY.
> Remember, the money will be spent over the next 4-5 years. It is not too
> late.
