Some Ideas Have Consequences


Some pictures of a Tea Party meeting in Concord New Hampshire.

The Heritage Foundation is always good for useful information. Our so-called representatives in Washington DC should check this site out.

I was talking to a friend from college days who said he was going to a Tea Party meeting in Concord NH. I asked him to take some pictures. See below. But first, just to remind ourselves how this whole thing got started. I mean in recent years, no in Revolutionary times of course. Remember Rick Santelli on the floor of CBOT?



More pictures of the Tea Party meeting in Concord NH.





These people look like fairly normal people to me. No guns. No Bibles here anyway. Just peacefully petitioning their representatives with their grievances. I am pretty sure I went to college with that guy in the blue collared shirt on the right.

I don't know - those guys look pretty scary. I bet they're packing heat!

Did you change your profile? It says you are a retired physician and I would have remembered that (if it had been there)

I would love to hear your thoughts on Obamacare. I think you may already know mine. heh

Thanks Adrienne for your comment. No, these are ordinary commoners. Their guns and Bibles are at home. I might have added to or maybe just revised the profile since my diverticulitis perforated. It is difficult to testify with fairly fresh holes in your belly. Maybe I will come out of retirement like Brett Favre one of these days.

As for ObamaCare, no one knows what it will be like, other than bad. Details to be announced.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
