Today President Obama came to town to give a speech and I found out that our local Tea Party group was going to stage a protest. I had to go and take some pictures. I posted a few choice shots below and you can view the whole set here.
He may not be able to buy a second vacation home so he's swearing off doctorhood. Probably for the best.

I'm unsure of the significance of the dead jester. Maybe she is saying that President Obama's feet smell bad?
I'm still not sure what the connection is between socialism and Heath Ledger's take on the Joker.

This sign wins the prize for the scariest sign of the day. Could this possibly be the first civil war fought over allowing your poor neighbors access to health care?
On the way to the event these two killed and ate two doctors and stole their clothes.
Of course there were counter protesters. Antiprotesters? Obama supporters? The best part of the experience was when the two sides chanted USA! USA! USA! across the street to each other.
I've seen this picture before. It's still offensive.
Naturally I took a panorama of the crowd.
Since I was in the area I swung by Carrowinds to check out the new Intimidator roller coaster. It is really, really big.
