Why did they wait so long to call it an act of terrorism? What are they covering up? How many Americans had to die because they wouldn't admit it was terrorism right from the start?
I demand a Congressional investigation into Teapartygate.

Meet Us at the Stick: Weaver95: well, from the perspective of the British - yes, it probably WAS an act of 'terrorism'.

Reminds me of a US History class I took as an undergrad where the prof explained things from the British point of view

How the British fronted most of the cost of the French and Indian War. Where there Brits were paying more in taxes to pay for that war than the Americans. And how the British Parliament felt that the Americans should start to pay for their fair share since they were the primary beneficiaries from said war.

Made the colonies sound like a bunch of spoiled ingrates.

Food for thought

RedPhoenix122: Relatively Obscure: I do, but I'm guessing more than a few people would not follow your first example. It is just a guess though.

That's only because anything a Muslim does in this country is considered terrorism by some.

All done to stop the Templars.

Too bad someone had to stab a biatch, after all.

In all seriousness, did anyone notice that the lesson plan hadn't been used in two years, and was taken off the website in January?

WHERE IS THE APPLICATION OF OLD NEWS IS SO EXCITING?

/Just finished reading Woodward's American Nations, which put the Revolution in a new light, so getting a kick.

I just got done watching a few episodes of The Wonder Years on Netflix. I'm pretty sure there were a few counts of terrorism, domestic violence, child abuse, felony assault, inciting a riot, rape, legitimate rape, manslaughter in there.

I think the dividing line between "FREEDOM FIGHTER" and "TERRORIST" is about 2 million dollars.

The Boston Tea Party cost an estimated 1.7 million dollars in today's money. These brave patriots were clearly doing their civic duty to protest against unfair taxation.

This RADICAL ECO-TERRORIST cost car dealerships a whole 2 million dollars in damage, at least. He's clearly evil and should be locked away for life.

So, instead of closing the Port of Boston, Parliament should have had the colonists stand at the end of Dorchester Neck holding a sign: "We destroyed Ye Olde Tea in the Harbour and Disrepected the King and Mother England".
