Emasculated American HistorySubmitted by MaxK on Wed, 08/17/2011 - 13:27
Back in December, 1773, our forefathers (forewomen too, although there were no women), protested the lack of representation, laws that went against their rights and taxes, and dumped a bunch of tea overboard.
It went on in this way. They all dressed up as a bunch of tax collectors (not indians) and boarded vessels in Boston Harbor and dumped a lot of tea overboard. Their leader, a tax prosecutor, made sure they did everything legal, and sent to jail anyone that committed a crime (like dumping tea that wasn't theirs overboard). Oh my, that is dreadful!
All this might not make much sense, as to how tax collectors are leading a tax protest, but that doesn't matter. GOD said to take the job, and despite the fact that John the Baptist was the last and greatest of the prophets, no one paid much mind, didn't read their Bible as the real source for the Word, and went with the one hearing a voice.
And so that is how tea was both dumped overboard and drunk the same day. And rum was never better apparently. I'll forgo the Revelation allusion.
