    Jim, do you imagine this tea was in individually boxed packages for supermarket shelves?

    You don't recall this nutty attempt at equating the two?



    Now, you're trying to say they were NOT just "throwing tea into the sea"?

    Sheeeeesh
    You have this problem of reading into things what you want them to say, CP. Saying they tossed the tea into the sea, which they did, doesn't mean that they didn't take as much of it as they could carry home as well. Who knows? You don't know anymore than I or anyone else does. My guess is that most likely, they took home what they could.

    What Happened at the Boston Tea Party?

    That night, a large group of men – many reportedly members of the Sons of Liberty – disguised themselves in Native American garb, boarded the docked ships and threw 342 chests of tea into the water.

    Said participant George Hewes, “We then were ordered by our commander to open the hatches and take out all the chests of tea and throw them overboard, and we immediately proceeded to execute his orders, first cutting and splitting the chests with our tomahawks, so as thoroughly to expose them to the effects of the water.”

    Hewes also noted that “We were surrounded by British armed ships, but no attempt was made to resist us.”

    Did you know? It took nearly three hours for more than 100 colonists to empty the tea into Boston Harbor. The chests held more than 90,000 lbs. (45 tons) of tea, which would cost nearly $1,000,000 dollars today.

    You're defending the anarchists as "statue topplers" and now besmirching the Tea Party actors as thieves.

    Already answered.

    You're a riot. Defending your anarchist buddies while casting aspersion on the Tea Party actors.

    It was in large crates. They didn't have time to go shopping.

    Same here. I'm a big time supporter of free speech and actually understand that popular speech doesn't need protecting. It's the things that offend and make folks uncomfortable that need protecting. At one time, not all that long ago, the left understood that as well but have now utterly abandoned it.
