BOSTON TEA PARTY
by the UK
On Wednesday, Dec. 16, 1998, the
British Govern- ment made official apology for the taxes levied by their short
sighted King long ago. The tax in question was on tea, and it was this tax
which inspired the Masonic Lodge of Boston to dress up like Indians and pitch
the latest load of tea into Boston harbor.
British apology came only 225 years late to the day, but the citizens of Boston
don't hold grudges, so they gladly accepted the apology from the British. The
Brooke Bond Tea Company sent actor Tom Baker to Boston. He played Dr. Who
in the famous time-travel TV series.
the UK is truly contrite over the tea tax, "ambassadors" were on hand to brew
a pot of tea and serve Bostonians the tea, AND not a penny of tax was charged.
On behalf of the rest of the USA, the Freemasons of
Boston, and the readers of this Journal, let us take this opportunity to congratulate
the British Government, Tony Blair, and the British people for this excellent
gesture of good will. I am sure the Royal Family would not possibly harbor
any reluctance to seek the good welfare of the USA, in spite of those claims by
some that the British elite are the ones pushing Bill Clinton into the Middle
East in order to trash the US. How could anyone possibly think such a thought?
Have a cup of tea folks.
