Boston Tea Parties Scheduled Around The Nation On Friday

On the evening of December 16th 1773, a group of fifty to sixty men disguised as Mohawk Indians boarded the British cargo ship Dartmouth moored in Boston harbor. Carefully unloading the ship's cargo of 342 chests of Tea from the East India Tea Company the men split open the chests and tossed the contents into Boston harbor to the delight of throngs of supporters gathered on the docks. By morning, 45 tons of tea had been dumped into the harbor with a loss of nearly $2 Million in modern-day value to the British Crown's official joint-stock company. Trouble between the colonists and King George III had been brewing over the the English parliment and the monarchy's efforts to force Americans to buy tea from the government sanctioned trading company, even though cheaper sources of tea were available to the public from Dutch merchants who did not tax their tea. Americans under the leadership of Samuel Adams finally delivered their own forceful response to the crown's attempt to dictate the sensibilities of tea consumption to the colonists.

Tomorrow on Friday February 27th 2009, Americans likewise sickened and disgusted by the frivilous and wasteful Tax and Spend policies of this administration, will hold Boston style Tea Parties from sea to shining sea.
