American History Blog Bite:
The Boston Tea Party was the culmination of a resistance movement throughout British America against the Tea Act, which had been passed by the British Parliament in 1773. This act, and the retaliatory measures taken by the British government afterwards, united the colonies even more in their frustrations against Britain, and was one of the many causes of the American Revolution. . . .
According to Wikipedia:
Thomas Paine (January 29, 1737 – June 8, 1809) was a British pamphleteer, revolutionary, radical, inventor, and intellectual. He lived and worked in Britain until age 37, when he emigrated to the British American colonies, in time to participate in the American Revolution. His principal contribution was the powerful, widely-read pamphlet Common Sense (1776), advocating colonial America's independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain, and The American Crisis (1776–1783), a pro-revolutionary pamphlet series. Later, he greatly influenced the French Revolution. He wrote the Rights of Man (1791), a guide to Enlightenment ideas.
Apparently President Obama has called Bob Basso on the carpet for his "inflammatory" message.

A YouTube video by actor Bob Basso portraying a modern day Thomas Paine is sweeping this country. Not since "I want my country back" has something so pro-American, so red white and blue, so revolutionary, taken this country by storm.
It calls for the 2nd American Revolution, and that apparently has Obama worried. Unconfirmed reports say that the Obama White House has contacted Basso and told him they would like to "meet" with him, and until then, they would prefer he not discuss the video in the media. Again this is an unconfirmed report.
Please watch this reminder of what our responsibility as a citizen of this country should be. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKFKGrmsBDk
And to the new administration, just a reminder, we still have freedom of speech. You haven't taxed us or jailed us out of that...yet.
