Tea Party Movement

Tea Rat: I think I'm going to join the "Tea Party Movement."

Rattus: Good for you. The Tea Party Movement wants to return to so-called original interpretations of the Constitution, reduce government spending, the national debt, and of course taxes. I don't agree with everything they believe in. For example, an original reading of the Constitution would mean that African Americans would still be only "Three-Fifths" of a person. Nevertheless, it's good to see citizens like yourself availing themselves of the democratic process to bring about change.

Tea Rat: I don't know anything about that. I just love tea parties.

I'm with Tea Rat on this one!
(LOVE Tea Parties!)
Have you heard about the Mad Tea Party over at Vanessa's??? It is set for July 28th!! She is a little late this year due to horrendous health scares. I told her she just needed a spot of Mad Tea! She must have heard me, cause she has sent out the invitations at last. I think this could be right up your alley...
Oh, there are links to previous Mad Tea Parties in my 'Green and Whit Garden', to help with ideas and such, but for real inspiration just go to
(pssst...you might want to let Anita know about this event...I think she would love it!!)
