TEA TIME GIRL: Some people like tea all by itself. Some like it with cream or sugar, some with lemon, mint, or spices. Why should we all drink tea the same way?

TEA TIME GIRL: I have friends who don’t drink tea, but they don’t seem to mind that I do. I also have friends who drink more tea than me, but I don’t mind. Why should anyone care?
TEA TIME GIRL: I drink two or three cups of tea a day. Some people drink twice as much. Some people don’t drink tea at all. Who’s to say what’s too much?
TEA TIME GIRL: There are so many kinds of tea to choose from – English breakfast tea, Earl Grey, Orange Pekoe, Darjeeling. . . . Imagine if you could only buy one kind of tea!
TEA TIME GIRL: I like to share a pot of tea with friends. And I like to see other people sharing tea. But I don’t expect complete strangers to pay for my tea, so why should I pay for theirs?
TEA TIME GIRL: No one tells me what tea to buy. Why should anyone tell me what doctor to visit or what kind of insurance I should have?
TEA TIME GIRL: Tea is tea, isn’t it? You wouldn’t serve vinegar or castor oil and call it tea. So why call something a “stimulus package” when it doesn’t stimulate anything?
Feel free to publish, post, or pass on Your Weekly Politickle by F.R. Duplantier:
When I have that low-down feeling
And my heart and head are reeling,
To save my day
I’ll sip Earl Grey,
Orange Pekoe, or Darjeeling
From the archive:
Some magicians do mental spoon-bending
Or assistants in mid-air suspending,
But Barack has a trick
That is even more slick:
He can balance a budget by spending!
They have money to disburse
That they’ve taken from our purse:
Those who made the big mess,
Turning more into less,
Will now solve it by making it worse.
Last week’s limerick:
“I’ll oppose social revolution
And income redistribution,
I will take an ax
To the federal tax
And adhere to our Constitution.”
TEA TIME GIRL: Do we really need the government to provide a “stimulus package”? When I want stimulation, I have a cup of tea. Here’s my “stimulus package.”
This is the first episode of a new Politickles video series called “Tea Time.” Lots more episodes to come. Look for the complete collection on Youtube and Facebook. Enjoy, share, and remember in November!
When they weren’t defamed as racists, Tea Party supporters were described as irrational, enraged, seething, livid. Constituents at town-hall meetings who rejected the superficial Democratic Party talking points and demanded answers instead of political spin were portrayed as mobs on the verge of riot. At the very time that real Muslim terrorists were planning a record number of attacks inside the United States right under their noses, political apparatchiks in the Department of Homeland Security warned ominously of imaginary right-wing violence as the nation’s newest terrorist threat. – Tony Blankley
