Ok, given the current state of affairs and our Socialist leaning government and President here's an idea all of us can relate to and participate in anonymously.

Purchase a small box of tea bags. Take three tea bags and put them in three seperate envelopes. Address one to each Senator from your state and one to your Representative. No return address needed. Just drop the tea bags in an envelope and send them to the hired help in Washington. It may not make a difference but then again it just might. At least they will get the idea. If they don't get it then they deserved to be voted out come next election.

Vic

I won't go into whether the idea is a good one or not or if it would do any good but I will share this.

This exact thing was done when someone sent a teabag to the local office of our State Representative. The employees there seeing a white package in an envelope with no return address called the local authorities and before it was all said and done it took a number of man hours and resources from local PD, FBI and FD including the HazMat Team to determine it was harmless. Cost for all that as well as keeping Emergency Responders tied up was hardly worth the message that the Representative never saw.

Sending it to the policians in Washington won't accomplish much either since they will probably never see the letter or get the message (figurativly or literally) as it will be destroyed by the Congressional mail service offices.

With all due respect and being this isn't the other board that has a space for modern rhetoric. I request you keep present day politics out of your postings. I would rather read about a research project or how you are developing your persona for historical reenacting, a trek planned or something along those lines.

I agree with Dave Schmid. I too come to this forum to get away from modern day politics and to find solace and relief from the ills of modern society.

Let's make a trek and go to rondy! Now them's shinin' times!!!

Well david and jb, consider it done. I apologize for offending your tender sensibilities. My thought, obviously erroneous, was that among those who study, live and thrive on the era of the founding of our country and those thought processes there might be some support to do something.

Again, I apologize and won't respond to this thread henceforth. (hat doffed, deep bow, backing out of room).

Vic
