I happened upon this little collection of Thomas Jefferson quotes today, and found it quite interesting in its contrast with “Bail ’em out Bush” and “I can do that, but bigger, Obama”.
There’s also this collection of TJ quotes, which hits a few other high points:
Let’s just say, I’m in a Chicago Tea Party mood lately.
That said, Denninger over on the Market Ticker suggested a few weeks ago to send a bag of tea to your concresscritter as a not-so-subtle message that We the People aren’t exactly happy campers. As historically appealing as that suggestion is, I’m not sure that he’s aware of the Halo generation and some of the implications thereof. Then again, perhaps today’s rebellious youth would enjoy spreading their particular FPS madness to the Congressional floor. *shrug*
This Flintlocke comic is as far as I go to explain.
