Boston Tea Party August 16, 2006
The American Revolution took place in 1773 and began with the dumping of tea into the Boston Harbor. I would like to begin the New American Revolution. I want thousands of tea bags from all over the country sent to the WH or to RNC. I want to send the message that we democrats have band together. This is a simple and symbolic message and affordable. Can I count on your support? Please visit my web page www.johnlisainmilo Its nothing fancy...but gets the info out there. Please tell your friends. Do I have your support?

1. That's not a bad idea...
I like it. My wife is definitely willing to donate a few tea bags to the cause.

Got a website? :D

13. thank you
Just seen that .....Thank you.....Hey...came up with another idea to get this message out while the state elections are taking place . How about writing a letter to the editor of your local newspaper giving the information, can you help us out by writing a letter to your newspaper. Thanks Lisa.

4. Yes, he has a web site
He just needs a quick crash course in self-promotion. John, dude...ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS include a "hotlink" to your website. Always. If you can't do it ALWAYS, then at least do it every single time you post...

August 16th Tea Party

8. getting feedback
Yes I have had lots of positive feedback on this....I am not experienced on getting this sort of thing going. I was simply motivated when the idea came up. I have created a simple web page with information. I agree about sending it to WH, others want RNC so both addresses are available visit: www.johnlisinmilo.com Thank You and please pass this message along. We want to do it while state elections are taking place and may do it again before 2008 elections. Can I count on you?

12. Here's the link to thread where Swamp Rat came up with the idea...

I rather like the idea of sending unused tea bags to the RNC with "Impeach Bush" as a tag. B-)
