image for Tea Bagging The Fed
More Tea Sir?

None of us will forget the day it began: Tea Bagging The Fed. They call the act childish in some circles and down right Patriotic in others.

The defiant act started at a lecture being given by a member of the Federal Reserve. A young man in the audience reached out and grasped something from his table. He tossed a simple little tea bag at the man from the Federal Reserve. Later they would falsely accuse him of being a Ron Paul supporter, but that first man was just an angry citizen.

He did not aim the tea bag at the speaker. He did not intend to harm this man, this tool of the Federal Reserve. No, he only wanted to send a message: We Will Not Pay Your Inflation Tax Anymore!

Others in the crowd picked up tea bags and tightly held them in their hands. They too tea bagged the Fed on that fateful day. Had this been a single incident perhaps no one would have taken notice, but this tea bagging of the Fed led to additional cases being reported. People dropped tea on the steps of the Federal Reserve buildings. They attended more lectures and speeches tossing tea bags in front of every speaker.

Even Ben Bernanke himself tasted the wrath of the tea bagging. Generations of men and women tired of the Federal Reserve causing inflation and stealing their hard work tossed tons of tea at his feet. If you did not know that tea bagging the Fed symbolized a revolt of the people against an oppressive system, you might believe that those crowds were paying homage to Ben Bernanke. He cannot take a step these days without a bag of tea under his feet reminding him that the people know the truth.

When asked if they will ever stop tea bagging the Fed one of the young men responded, "We will stop tea bagging the Fed the day the Federal Reserve stops destroying our currency, or ceases to exist all together."
