Send a Tea Bag to Washington; Modern Tea Party

Although the goal for this one is to have the tea bags in hand tomorrow, I think if they get there this week it'll still send the right message. Even sending a fax picture of a tea bag works. Send an email with the word "TEA BAG TEA PARTY" as the message (I'd imagine attached clip art will end up in spam file somewhere).

Here's the info from the Facebook group:

Description: It is time for We The People to send a strong message to Washington DC - no more. No more loading our children and grandchildren with debt. No more bailing out speculators and bankers who made bets they knew were unsafe at the time. No more bailing out people who came to Congress to demand the removal of leverage limits, got what they asked for, then blew themselves up with the very leverage they demanded to be able to use.

No more.

Therefore, on February 1st, which is more than enough time for Barack Obama to be seated in his chair in the West Wing, I am recommending an act of peaceful, lawful and yet unmistakable protest.

That is, to mail President Obama one teabag. Nothing dangerous, nothing illegal - just one teabag.

Send one to your Congressman and one to each Senator.

(If you don't feel comfortable sending an actual tea bag then print one off and send it.)
