Boston Tea Party calls for bailout tea party

Originally posted at http://www.bostontea.us/node/568. Reposted to IPR by Paulie.

On January 22, the Boston Tea Party National Committee (BTPNC) passed a resolution supporting the February 1st 2009 Tea Party. The Tea Party effort originated at Market-Ticker.org, where Karl Denninger wrote, “It is time for We The People to send a strong message to Washington DC – no more. No more loading our children and grandchildren with debt. No more bailing out speculators and bankers who made bets they knew were unsafe at the time. No more bailing out people who came to Congress to demand the removal of leverage limits, got what they asked for, then blew themselves up with the very leverage they demanded to be able to use.”

The BTPNC resolution expressed support for the Tea Party, and called on each BTP member to mail one bag of tea to the President of the United States, one tea bag to the member’s Representative in the House, and one tea bag to each of the member’s two Senators.

On February 1st, thousands of people will send tea bags to the Capitol, sending a strong message to the executive and legislature that the American people do not wish to take on the debt created by bailing out private corporations.

“It is time that America returns to its founding values of protecting liberty and expecting personal responsibility,” says Douglass Gaking, Chair of the national committee. “The American taxpayer can not afford to take on this debt. He did not ask for it, and it should not be his responsibility.”

This resolution comes in the same month that the committee passed a resolution calling upon “both houses of the US Congress to promptly pass,and … the state legislatures to ratify, a constitutional amendment repealing section 4 of the 14th amendment, prohibiting future indebtedness and deficit spending on the part of the federal government, and repudiating all federal government debt and debt service obligations accrued prior to the ratification of said amendment.”

As the growing national debt currently creeps past the $10.5 trillion mark, the presumptive personal debt burden of each and every American — man, woman and child — for past US government expenditures now exceeds $35,000 and is growing at a rate of more than $3,000 per year. The BTPNC’s resolutions, backed by the activism of hundreds of Americans, send a message to Congress that the American people do not accept the responsibility of this unwanted debt.

The Boston Tea Party, a new libertarian party which ran its first presidential slate in 2008, campaigns on a one-sentence platform: “The Boston Tea Party supports reducing the size, scope and power of government at all levels and on all issues, and opposes increasing the size, scope and power of government at any level, for any purpose.”

    I’m just saying… don’t these guys think or at least consult with people outside of their little circle before coming up with this stuff? I mean, “tea bagging” people? Really?!?! Teabagging has been going in in Washington for awhile now.

    So again…upon being “tea bagged,” thousands of Congressional staffers begin to snicker.

  3. LPbuster

    In case there are those who my comment went over their head… “Tea bagging” is a pop culture and not very obscure reference to a mild sexual act.

    They might as well send Congress a Cleveland Steamer.

    visualwikipedia.com:

    Teabagging is a slang term for the act of a man placing his testicles in the mouth or on or around the face (including the top of the head) of another person, often in a repeated in-and-out motion as in irrumatio. The practice vaguely resembles dipping a tea bag into a cup of tea.

    Teabagging is also an erotic activity used within the context of BDSM and male dominance, with a dominant man teabagging his submissive partner, either a woman or a man, as one variation of facesitting and/or as a means of inflicting erotic humiliation.

    urbandictionary.com:

    A Cleveland Steamer is one of two acts that are similar for the scatalogically inclined. One is a crude sex act the other a crude break up technique. Both are the same thing.

    1. You take a dump on a lovers chest while or before titty fucking (if that partner is a female.) Generally for the cacaphile only or as a domination and humiliation tool in BDSM games. See also Brown Showers. The steamer part is that it is very probably steaming from the freshness (Moisture rising from it) not to do with “steamrolling” it. Then it would have been called a “Cleveland Steamroller”. It is probably named after Cleveland (Lucky us Clevelanders) because of the brown stripe left behind resembling the brown stripe on the orange Cleveland Browns Football Helmet. If you squish it down and then you spooge on it for syrup it becomes a “Boston Pancake”. Don’t know the origin of Boston in refernce to that act.

    2. Often used as a breakup technique for angry lovers to wait till the other is asleep and dumping on their chest and leaving them to wake in it the morning after. Point made. Sexual intercourse isn’t necessary beforehand technically. It is only for extra points with your pals since you obviously are only pretending to be making up and having sex to achieve this goal and are tricking the other person to get even. Usually done without knowledge of the victim if the “pooper” wants to escape alive.

    Back to ViisualWikipedia:

    Coprophilia (from Greek ??????, kópros—excrement and ?????, filía—liking, fondness), also called scat, is the paraphilia involving sexual pleasure from feces. In the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association (DSM-IV-TR), it is classified under 302.9 Paraphilia Not Otherwise Specified and has no diagnostic criteria other than a general statement about paraphilias that says “the diagnosis is made if the behavior, sexual urges, or fantasies cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.” Furthermore, the DSM-IV-TR notes, “Fantasies, behaviors, or objects are paraphilic only when they lead to clinically significant distress or impairment (e.g. are obligatory, result in sexual dysfunction, require participation of nonconsenting individuals, lead to legal complications, interfere with social relationships).”

    Although not all coprophiles would necessarily be sadomasochists, little data on the prevalence of this behavior is available except from studies of the SM community. A study of 164 male sadomasochists from Finland from two sadomasochism clubs found that 18.2% had engaged in coprophilia; 3% as a sadist, 6.1% as a masochist, and 9.1% as both. Eighteen percent of heterosexuals in the study pool had tried coprophilia; 17% of homosexuals had (no statistically significant difference between heterosexuals and homosexuals). In a separate article, a subset of 12 men from that study who engaged in bestiality was analyzed and found that 54.5% of the 12 men had engaged in coprophilic behaviors, compared with only 8.3% of 12 of the men who did not engage in bestiality who matched up logically with each of the 12 who did. (A matched pairs study was done.)

    Jim Davidson writes at bostontea.us:


    Don’t forget to mail protest letters to Congress and the president with bags of tea on February 1st as part of our participation in a nationwide “Tea Party” to protest the bailouts and other injustices. Here are a few to think on:

    Today is the 813th day since the Democrats won majority control of Congress and failed to end the war on drugs, end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, repeal the USAPATRIOT Act the REAL ID act, the National Animal Identification System, the Military Commissions Act, abolish the Department of Homeland Security, restore freedom to our airports, or put the Bill of Rights back on sound footing. Forty-two coalition troops have been killed in Iraq since Barack Obama was elected, and Guantanamo has not yet been closed. Four thousand two hundred and thirty lives have been lost by coalition forces in Iraq since the war began, and by various estimates anywhere from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of civilian Iraqis. Tens of thousands of troops have been injured. People are dying for change.

    Still.

    Let’s send the politicians so many tea bags that they have to be delivered by Cleveland Steamer!

    I did a brief examination today of eight stocks, including some of the banks, insurance companies, and auto companies which have been provided heaps of taxpayer dollars.

    Here is that review:
    http://bostontea.us/node/627#comment-2118

    The collapse of these companies, and the loss of value to taxpayers who bought in through the idiotic bailouts at much higher prices, is quite staggering. The healthiest stock I looked at was Goldman Sachs, which I believe benefits not only from TARP but also from the AIG bailout. Goldman Sachs has lost over 67% of their stock price since its peak.

    The worst example is AIG which is down 99.66% from its peak price. Reminds me of that Ivory soap commercial “99 and 44/100ths pure.” Pure? In AIG’s case, pure sewage.

    Politicians of left or right are bought and payed for by the Bildergerg group and the group of seven. They have some extreme plans for world population and it is still possible to read about them on the internet.

    These groups own all major media and are secretive.

    To find out what matters most, look up the Bilderbergers and research their world views.
    All you have to do is think about the course of history over the last forty years, to see that things are moving as they desire.

  12. Mark Veil

    You will read that some extreme things are taking place. It is best to persist in your research and not go into denial. Only if billions of the world s population wake up to what is going on can anything be done.

    Yes. What if the tiny group controlling the entire world are actually organized crime mongers –we could just play dead, go back to sleep or spread the word.

    That’s the problem with the Tea Party, it’s all gut instinct on no logic. The bailouts were flawed, but we’ve gotten most of the money back from what I’ve heard. The financial system had to be saved. I would have preferred that they had attached some strings to the bailout to make the banks renegotiate some of those loans with people facing default, but what we got was still better than an economic depression.
