“It’s not enough to bleat,” Frary said. “If you just bleat, you’re a sheep waiting to get fleeced.”
That’s my friend John, at a TEA Party rally in Augusta, Maine, urging people to sign petitions opposing runaway taxation.
He himself ran for Congress (and lost) last election, is retired from teaching, has a way with words.
TEA stands for Taxed Enough Already, or has been since the Boston Tea Party, one of our early anti-taxation events, became the model for a national movement some months back.
Relatively amorphous now, it has legs and will be an important part of the national mix yet. Might make a difference in the coming mid-terms, that is.
