I got a phone call last nightSubmitted by Tbuck on Tue, 08/14/2012 - 09:33
It was one of those delayed response to hello marketing calls. The young sounding man immediately went to reading quickly from his prepared script. I listen for about 2 sentences worth of his hurried pitch about some tea party organization and conservatives taking control in D.C. when I stopped him in his tracks.
Interrupting him, I said in a firm voice, "Do you know when the Teaparty was started?"
After a pause of about 5 seconds he answered, "No," rather timidly.
I responded again very firmly, "December 16th, 2007 by a group of Ron Paul supporters re-inacting the original Boston Tea Party. I'm a Ron Paul supporter. Nobody but Ron Paul! GOT IT?!"
Let me tell you folks. It felt good to proclaim that and maybe just maybe thru educating this young man a little he'll take the time to look it up and learn about the R3volution.
I'm an opinionated SOB that will always take a moment to educate the ignorant or apathetic.
