So far, this Designated Conservative, like all of the Tea Party protesters across the U.S., has received no response from President Obama to my April Fool’s Day Tea Party letter… …at least until now.

HOMELAND SECURITY UPDATE:
Police Determine Substance Inside Envelope Was Green TeaPOSTED: 4:30 pm EDT April 1, 2009UPDATED: 9:31 am EDT April 2, 2009
MANCHESTER, N.H. — An envelope with a suspicious substance in it was sent to U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter’s Manchester office on Wednesday.
Shea-Porter’s staff notified Manchester police when they received the suspicious envelope. Officials were able to determine that the substance was green tea and had been sent as a protest.
There was a return address on the envelope, and police spoke to the sender. Police said the sender showed a lack of judgment but didn’t mean to cause alarm.
The sender apparently included a note on the inside explaining the contents. This is another cautionary tale reminding us why it’s important to include a label (“ENCLOSED: ONE (1) TEABAG. Harmless!) on the OUTSIDE of your TeaParty protest teabag mailing envelopes…. 🙂
APRIL 1 TEA PARTY EVENT
Event Description: On April 1, 2009, all Americans are asked to send a tea bag to Washinton , D.C. to protest the massive growth in the federal government through the bailout, borrow, spend, and tax policies of President Obama and the Democrat Congressional leadership. This Designated Conservative is planning to send one to Prsident Obama, as well as to Michigan Democrat representatives in Congress.
You do not have to enclose a note or any other information unless you so desire, but I would recommend that a note be included on the outside like this one:
ENCLOSED: ONE (1) TEA BAG
Otherwise, our little protest may freak out the Homeland Security folks, and we wouldn’t want that now would we?
