This day in history, 1773, the Boston Tea Party destroyed 342 chests of East India Company Tea! England would respond w/ the Intolerable Acts!! SHOUT-OUT to WA Basketball teams, big games tonite vs. Willamette.
Parliament responded in 1774 with the Coercive Acts, or Intolerable Acts, which, among other provisions,
"No wonder they were called the Intolerable Acts. I couldn't handle it if there was a tax on your sugar."
I'm sorry Gaga :( truly breaks my heart to hear about intolerable acts. We should strive to support and love, Not destroy and hate
Set up some fireworks and put on a little show for my parents and grandma. It was nice. The sparkle of the neighbor's mortar style fireworks, though, filled the sky with glistening artificial stars that offered the stuff of interstellar fantasies and dreams of a cosmonaut exploring other worlds deep in our galaxy. As the mortar put on its display and lit up the sky with faux stars the glittering specks of light fell back to Earth, and revealed Ursa Major with Alioth twinkling back at me. The night sky regained its relative stellar calm and I too thought of others maybe looking up at the night sky. Everyone thank their lucky stars for: 1) The Seven Years War 2) The Proclamation of 1763 3) The Sugar Act of 1764 4) The Stamp Act of 1765 5) The Declaratory Act of 1766 6) The Townshend Act of 1767 7) Virginia's Resolution of 1769 8) The Incident on King Street A.K.A.

Voices of the Revolution: Sons of Liberty In the 225+ years since its independence, the United States of America has developed into a thriving nation, based on the articulate freedoms of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Yet, not every aspect of the Revolutionary Period is full of bright morals and good behavior. When Britain imposed the Intolerable Acts throughout the 1750s and 60s, a great number of men became extremely angry, and began to act violently against British Loyalists in the colonies. Mobs sprung up all over the colonies, reigning terror on those who remained faithful to the crown. Sons of Liberty, Revolutionary War One of these groupings would be a secret Boston association known as the The Loyal Nine, composed of elite gentleman, mainly law men and artisans, who met discretely to organize ways to begin to effectively oppose the actions of the crown. The Loyal Nine were responsible for putting boundaries on the rampant violence of Boston, and set limits on how far the demonstratio ...

First Continental Congress. Time to respond to these Intolerable Acts.
David Williams A Lesson in History Sons of Liberty: American citizens, armed and forming a civilian militia, not part of the regular military, fought against the government and its tyranny. The group was formed to protect the rights of the colonists and to take to the streets against the tyranny of the government. They are best known for undertaking the Boston Tea Party in 1773, which led to the Intolerable Acts (an intense crackdown by the government, including gun confiscation), and a counter-mobilization by the Patriots. Many of the leaders were Freemasons (Samuel Adams, John Adams, Paul Revere, to name a few). These freedom-fighters were instrumental in winning the Revolutionary War. After winning against the government, many of the Sons of Liberty and other Founding Fathers (Thomas Jefferson, George Mason, Richard Henry Lee, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Patrick Henry, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, Noah Webster, Tench Coxe, Thomas Paine, and many others) insisted on the right to maintain ...
If Obama is a US citizen, he is is the unfittest person on Earth to argue another American into slavery." And to believe he and the members of congress will support and defend the US constitution is a dangerous deception. From taxation and gun control, to the current debt ceiling debate, Washington D.C. is pathetically incapable of anything but repeat what King George and the British Parlaiment done. Are we witnessing beginning of another government initiating Intolerable Acts, that led to Powder Alarm;Portsmouth Alarm, Salem confrontation and ultimately.
leave it to CNN to televise stupid segments like "Worst Crimes of 2012", and people wonder why these intolerable acts happen
The Christians: Massacred the American Indian tribes of North and South America, enslaved countless Africans, and attempted to conquer the Arabs... All in the name of Christianity. The Muslims: Commit acts of terrorism, treat women like animals, and conquered North Africa and most of Central Asia... All in the name of Islam. The Jews: Treat Palestinians like sub humans, wage a sabotage war against Arabs, and refuse to make peace... All in the name of Judaism. All the people claim that their respective religion teaches "peace and love and forgiveness" and yet they do such things as I have listed. Perhaps religion has done nothing more but cause more problems rather than solved... What do you think??? - ismael

I have seriously opposed many of the recent acts of the British Parliament, but these Coercive Acts, or "Intolerable" Acts, are simply an invasion of our rights and privileges. It is astounding to see them abuse their authority in such a way.
Prayers for the brave young woman battling it out. Rape is about power and such vicious acts are intolerable.
You *** one hopes you enjoy these intolerable acts! The Queen
The Coercive Acts and The Intolerable Acts are the same thing 💀
Watching the House machinations is quite humorous , while I appreciate the gesture. We have approached the "Intolerable Acts" , NO MORE TAX
III percent answer to the intolerable acts proposed
THE Boston Tea Party prompted the British to pass the Intolerable (Coersive) Acts
The US is quick to sanction nations for acts we deem intolerable, soon they may sanction us until we revise our gun laws.
Admit you were wrong and I will continue this conversation. Until then, read "the Intolerable Acts"
my brain wont remember anything. especially like the acts and stuff like intolerable and stuff like that idk hELP
she acts like many other females I know and shes mainly nice to me. I'm not found intolerable
So I just got off the phone with my fiduciary, needless to say I'm no longer leaving for N.C. on Sunday. As an added bonus I was threatened with legal action if I didn't take down my blog. Yeah that's going to happen. Let me be clear. If the government at any any level thinks me a criminal that needs to be locked away, come get me. No tough guy talk, I know what a losing battle looks like. I won't resist. I've laid in a cell before for less, I can do it again. You at the VA may have been able to impact my 2nd and 4th amendment rights, that doesn't mean I've quit. You will have to kill me for that to happen, and I refuse to give you a reason to. Even with all that, you should understand, nothing you do, no law you write, will ever stop my from being a free man excersicing his rights. I still have access to guns and whatever else I want, and will continue to act in whatever manner I decide is morally and constitutionally correct. There will be a longer post tonitght @ Intolerable Acts!
Juniors~We've found that France takes credit, US calls them Intolerable Acts, & UK does not mention British East India Company
How ironic. On this day in history, the First Continental Congress met in Philadelphia, (1774) to determine the American Colonies response to the "Intolerable Acts" by the British Parlament. It seems as tho the British figured that the American Colonists belonged to their Government. ( Now the DNC thinks the same way.)
Indignation against England's colonial policy reached fever pitch in the colonies after the passage (1774) of the Intolerable Acts, and the Sons of Liberty and the committees of correspondence promoted the idea of an intercolonial assembly similar to the one held (1765) at the time of the Stamp Act.
The First Continental Congress was a convention of delegates from twelve British North American colonies that met on September 5, 1774, at Carpenters' Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, early in the American Revolution. It was called in response to the passage of the Coercive Acts (also known as Intolerable Acts by the Colonial Americans) by the British Parliament. The Intolerable Acts had punished Boston for the Boston Tea Party. The Congress was attended by 56 members appointed by the legislatures of twelve of the Thirteen Colonies, the exception being the Province of Georgia, which was hoping for British assistance with Indian problems on its frontier.[1] The Congress met briefly to consider options, including an economic boycott of British trade; rights and grievances; and petitioning King George III for redress of those grievances. The Congress also called for another Continental Congress in the event that their petition was unsuccessful in halting enforcement of the Intolerable Acts. Their appeal t ...
Intolerable Acts (1774) Four punitive measures enacted by the British Parliament against the American colonies
I want to see the new IRS FORMS that has ALL of these NEW TAXES line by line!! THAT will show stupid people that it’s NOT FREE! The general public hasn't got a clue as to what's going on in congress. They listen to the talking heads and think they are experts when the exact opposite is true. The final major set of laws was called by the colonists “the Intolerable Acts.” King George personally created these acts in 1774 to punish the colonists for the Boston Tea Party. After several colonists dumped 18,000 pounds of tea into the Boston Harbor, the King was rather angry. The Intolerable Acts consisted of three major laws: The Boston Harbor was shut down until the colonists paid for the damaged tea, British commanders were allowed to house British soldiers in private homes, and Boston was placed under a martial law in which the King had full power and control over the land.
OBAMACARE,, The arguments that President Obama and his liberal supporters used to justify the Obamacare mandate are remarkably similar to the arguments used by the British to justify the Stamp Act, the Intolerable Acts and the other taxes that led the Patriots of Boston to dump tea into Boston Harbor. As was the case in 1776, some Americans appeared to be "freeloading" and weren't contributing their fair share to the common good. Providing all of the benefits of royal rule was expensive and everyone must contribute. Most importantly, the Sovereign in far-away Great Britain knew best. Whether Americans wanted those benefits or not, Americans would be charged for the privilege of living under beneficent British rule . . . or receiving the benefits of Obamacare. Americans objected to being taxed for these purposes, especially without their consent, and eventually the Continental Congress met in Philadelphia to set into motion the revolution that was already stirring in the hearts of people from one end of th ...
Just as Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams, and George Washington declared their independence from the British Crown over their opposition to Intolerable Acts, this Fourth of July so will we declare our independence from this intolerable Act. ~ nicely put.
238 years ago today, the British Parliament ordered that the Port of Boston be closed in response to the Boston Tea Party, sealing off the port to all ships going out and coming in. This was one of the "Intolerable Acts" enacted on American settlers that united the colonies in rebellion, led to the revolution and eventual independence for America. Not so long ago, we were fighting for our freedom, now we are fighting to keep it.
