Tea party members tackle a new issue: manatees.
"We cannot elevate nature above people," the Citrus County Tea Party Patriots, in an interview. "That's against the Bible and the Bill of Rights."
Everybody knows what the tea party members oppose. High taxes. Big government. Obama's health care plan. High-speed rail.
Now, for at least some local tea party members, there's one more to add: manatee protection.
The Bill of Rights
I found nothing about this in the bill of rights?
The bible tells me that we are to tend to other creatures, not destroy them.
the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
Anyone that had history in school, at least U.S. History, remembers the Boston tea party.
On 12/16/1773, men dressed as Indians ( Native Americans) boarded three ships anchored in Boston Harbor.
These people did not like the government in power at the time so they took it out on the food.
Today 07/14/2011 tea party do not like the ruling government so they are taking it out on the Manatees?
The Tea party speak with fork tongue!
