    The Boston Tea Party on this day -December 16th, 1773

    One of my favorite stories about the leaders we USE to have in America. Do the right thing and fight the power.

    It used to be iron men and wooden ships; now it's wooden men and iron ships. We are going downhill fast!

    I thought it was on the 16th of December, not the 17th?

    Edited for 2nd thought:
    Maybe it caried on past midnight?

    The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting. It is about keeping the government in check. This requires that the citizenry is well armed and at all times has immediate access to arms.

    It is the 16th.


    I remember when Snapple had the Boston Tea Party on their labels, but now they've removed it.
