Fun at the boston tea party.
« on: April 17, 2009, 08:59:31 pm »
Well last Wednesday I skipped school to join the first tea party in Boston since the "Boston tea party"

Todd Fienburg (from Finnerans forum on WRKO, an awesome show if anyone is interested in talk radio) acted as Master of ceremonies for the day. speakers included arla Howell, Committee for Small Government; Jim Stergios, Executive Director, The Pioneer Institute; Chip Faulkner, Associate Director, Citizens for Limited Taxation; State Senator Bob Hedlund, State Senator Plymouth and Norfolk District, R-MA; Michael Johns, conservative leader and writer; David Tuerck, Exec. Director, The Beacon Hill Institute; Kris Mineau, President, Massachusetts Family Institute.

It was from noon to 4. The people there were a mix of libertarians, conservatives, moderates, and malcontent democrats. Many Ron Paul supporters attended and sounds of down with the fed echoed through the common. The majority of signs and cat calls were not directed at Obama, (despite what MSNBC and the biggest douche bag on cable news Keith Olbermann seems to think) but directed at deficit spending, and fiscal irresponsibility, positions that have no party allegiance, and allowed this bi partisan coalition of patriots who have many differences, (at times I was annoyed at calls to end the "American empire") but I appreciated the fact that despite our differences we could work together on a common goal.

It was a beautiful day, and I took the following pictures.

If ever a government uses the instruments of power in its hands for the purpose of leading a people to ruin, rebellion is not only the right but the duty of every member of such a people.
