Tea bags childish and self-defeating

The News-Record reports that some "clever" folks are attaching tea bags to the tax forms that they are submitting to Raleigh as a form of protest.
Drawing on the imagery of the Boston Tea Party, a movement driven mainly by conservatives has been sending tea to government offices — including some in Congress — as a signal that they would like to see taxes and government spending lowered.
However, the packages require extra handling, including extra security screening. The net result of the "tea-baggers" childish behavior is to increase the costs of government and to make it more difficult to discern genuine security threats.

Last November, the voters weren't buying what these selfish, spoiled children were selling. Now, these same brats are going to show their true colors by throwing an expensive tantrum.
