I'm so tuff, I can watch shows like "UNTOLD STORIES OF THE ER", while eating dinner, without puking. Now, let me in the club, before I *censored to protect this thread*.

1) I made an AMV using a real .50cal machinegun to blow up 11 plushies of certain obnoxious anime characters, each filled with at least 1/2 pound charges of ammonium nitrate - the same stuff Timothy McVeigh used to blow up a federal building in Oklahoma City, 1995.

2) Tough also includes freedom from concern for the environment. This planet is given to us to use to our benefit. That's why men invented TNT for mining, dredging vessels heavier than WW2 battleships, and large machines like bucket-wheel excavators:

Real men are not friends with nature, we dominate and rule it. Ever watch a boy in the rain pause before a puddle, then jump right in with both feet? Now THAT's how you stomp a carbon footprint.
I don't have a bucket wheel excavator but I do have a coal-fired melting furnace for hobby castings, and when I fire it up to melt metal it smokes and smells like an old diesel truck with no rings left, and on a good afternoon I can probably cancel out 150 MAX-riding vegan greenie-weenies.

If you were referring to the 'Taxed Enough Already' political movement, which kicked off pretty much in 2009 by a Wall St. trader who got p_'d off that his (and our) taxes were being raised to bail out suckers who couldn't pay their own mortgages ( I think his famous rant is here: video.cnbc.com/gallery/?video=1039849853 )
...well, then, No.
The emotion (or cultural norm) that Tough Guys are rough on 'Mother Nature' pre-dates the Tea Party by decades if not centuries.
A book I used to own was titled "Real Men Don't Eat Quiche" and had a cartoon in it with a guy in a large, square, American sedan like a Caddy or Lincoln - the type that would have had either a 460 or a 502 under the hood - the type of car that leaves a full-size (shall I say, American-sized) carbon footprint. The driver is blasting off into the sunset and the caption read "Damn the environment, full speed ahead."
That line itself was a reference to great American Tough-Guy David Farragut, USN, "Damn the torpedos, full speed ahead."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Farragut
 
Now, in comparison to the way, in this day and age, 26 year old "children" can continue on their parents insurance:

[Caption: A supposedly 'adult' male 'child' of the Obama era']
 
Now go read up on David Farragut who at HALF the age of wuss-boy above, yes, that's THIRTEEN,
was not only in command of a captured enemy warship but successfully suppressed a mutiny among the British
men who had been aboard.
 
Also, for a more local example easily 100 years or more earlier than the TEA party, anyone can google around for "placer mining" in southern Oregon.
So, no, nothing to do with silly TEA party.
