King George III not forgotten
Don't worry. King George says these protests are manufactured.

As you recall, George III's British subjects in America launched the first tea party. Initially they were angrier with Parliament which had imposed taxes for which they had not voted.
Tea parties are now taking place all over America as citizens express their concerns that huge budget deficits will mean high taxes and hurt their children, government plans to take over health care will create a mediocre system, paying for 50 million uninsured Americans will inflict rationing on older Americans and no one in Congress is reading these 1,000 page-bills before voting for them. Being called Un-American and Nazis by their elected officials because they have expressed their views has not gone over well either.
