I think more Teepers need to see this... while they are trying to "save taxpayer money" by de-funding Planned Parenthood and NPR.

Thanks for posting this.   The whole Idea of throwing tea into the harbor to protest taxes being levied to raise a British army (as I was taught in my grade school history class) didn't quite make sense - it never really connected.  Protesting a government backed monopoly does.

Boy-howdy was I surprised!  The younger folk said they KNEW that version... not the one (as pan and i were told in grade school) that it was a "protest against higher taxes (without 'representation') to raise an occupying army."  They seem to fear the word "socialism" a lot less now... but the conditioning runs as deep as you can imagine.
