Preparing for the Boston Tea Party

We are preparing for the Boston TeaParty.nu on December 16 in Gothenburg city. Please stay tuned for an invitation via email, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.

TeaParty.nu gear

The tea party will start at 6 PM CET with a welcome drink (“sparkling tea”) and time for social intercourse (mingle). Around 6:30 PM, we will make a toast to the Sons and Daughters of Liberty.

Since women often purchased consumer goods for the home, the Daughters of Liberty became instrumental in upholding the boycott, particularly where tea was concerned.

After the toast we will talk about the historical event in Boston and then we will have our own version of “afternoon” (high) tea with a mix of scones, tea sandwiches and Xmas treats, e.g., ginger biscuits. During eating and talking, you will have the opportunity to participate in a fun quiz about Boston and tea. The winners will win tea related prizes.

At 7:30 PM we will announce the winners of the quiz and tell you about our plans for future events. We will then end the tea party and continue the partying at some other place, e.g. a beer cellar, drinking (Samuel Adams) beer…

Today, I have ordered Boston Harbour Tea from Mark T. Wendell.
The tea is produced by Davison Newman & Co.
Mark T Wendell describes the tea as

an exceptional blend of the finest black teas from Sri Lanka and Darjeeling. When brewed, this “tea with a history” has a sweet aroma and a brisk flavor that is sure to please. (marktwendell.com/BostonHarbour.htm)

We will serve the tea at our Boston TeaParty.nu celebration event December 16.

Tea Party in the Nude

Is it time to point out that the Emperor is nude, ”undress” the leaders of the Tea Party movement and call the poker “bluff” at the casino? Personally, I don’t think that the journalists of the mainstream media have figured out how to use social media in a proper way and they are clueless regarding fundamental ideas. Here is an opinionated excerpt from the article, GOP leaders must free themselves from the Tea Party’s grip, by opinion writer Eugene Joseph Dionne Junior:

The Tea Party lives in an intellectual bubble where the answers to every problem lie in books by F.A. Hayek, Glenn Beck or Ayn Rand. Rand’s anti-government writings, regarded by her followers as modern-day scripture — Rand, an atheist, would have bridled at that comparison — are particularly instructive. (The Washington Post, July 21, 2011.)

I am having a hard time to “read” the tea leaves and have a qualified guess if “Tea Partyers is planning to hold their ground” against the spending spree “or force others to spend,” and if that will “lead to a split of the Republican Party,” a.k.a the Grand Old Party. I must admit that I am not sure about the outcome at the moment, but I am pretty sure that the so-called “American Dream Movement” will not become “bigger than the Tea Party“…

I have to say that I am glad to see that today’s home towner of Boston (Tea Party) are pretty honest about paying for Honest Tea!

Could you guess how honest they are inside the Beltway, Washington D.C.? Would you have guessed that Chicago was named the most honest city in America?

As an endnote, did you know that the word “nu” is “nude” in French? In Swedish “nu” is “now”. Tea Party Nude / Now = TeaParty.nu! ;)
