"Hi Thomas, are you going to make it in for your appointment today?"
"I've been sitting in the lobby for 20 minutes"
The embarrassed receptionist looked up and invited me back to get numbed up for my dental work. I overheard the dentist telling her that he couldn't take the appointment that was running late because he was overbooked.
After the general pleasantries, he asked me what I did for a living. I told him that I worked in trade finance and receivables management
“So what do you think is going to happen with the economy?” He asked.
With the tube in my mouth I said something that resembled “It’s going to get worse”
“I agree" he paused, and then continued, "Especially with the fiscal policy, if they keep printing money.”
I was on the edge of my seat at this point and pulled the tube out of my mouth and said “We need to end the FED”
“you know, I never talk about politics, but I just watched a four part video on youtube of Ron Paul at a University in Massachusetts”
“Stop right there, look at this”
I pulled out my blackberry and showed him the website that I always have open, the one and only dailypaul.com
We went on to have a half hour discussion about Ron and how he is the only person in Washington that makes any sense... People were waiting, the hygienists kept asking him to do things but we just kept talking about the constitution, the second amendment, the FED, the IRS, foreign policy...
This is only the second time I have ever seen this dentist and I didn't even have to bring up Uncle Ron, he approached me.
Anyway, this was my morning, and I wanted to share it with you guys. He is in Matawan NJ
I invited him to come on Monday night in NYC, we'll see
