They say tea is good for you.

In an interesting turn of events today, I received notice of two related subjects:  Upcoming events for the Doctors Tea Parties and an OpenSecrets blog entry examining the political contributions rolling in to members of the new Tea Party Caucus in Congress. Guess which group is among those making the largest campaign contributions to the Tea Party Caucus... yep, doctors! Rightly so, if you ask me, as their livelihoods are at risk with the Banana Republic style takeover that we all know is right at hand.

What took me a bit by surprise in the list of contributors was the large contributions from retirees. If these are retirees looking to protect their government-subsidized retirements and/or medicare, then we certainly have a fly in the tea, ladies and gentlemen. That is NOT what the Tea Party movement is all about. However, if these retirees are hoping to protect their grandchildren from financial slavery, well then, we do indeed have a party and that tea will certainly hit the spot!

For your convenience, here's the scoop on the Doctors Tea Parties. Go get 'em, docs!
