When Concords Town Meeting voted to ban the sale of bottled water Wednesday night, one of the bans supporters told her fellow Condordians, Were not gonna solve all the problems of the world, but this is our one chance to make a really huge statement to the world.
And shes right, they made a huge statement: Hello, World! If youre looking for the dumbest voters in the United States of America, you found us!
The town of Concord not state, county or even city is waging war on the evil of convenient, easily-portable water by outlawing something many of its citizens now have in their refrigerators. In fact, Id be willing to bet that many of the dopey do-gooders have bottles of Fiji and Aquafina in the cupholders of their Priuses right now.
But like the lady said, actually doing something worthwhile isnt the point. Making a really huge statement is.
And so Concord voted 403-364 to make it illegal to sell bottled water. Uh, wait. Thats not right. You can still sell bottled water, it just has to be in larger bottles.

I’ve seen the bottled water in Concord. They wear leather jackets and ride those loud mopeds. They had a rumble one night in the middle of town. I was looking for switchblades and chains, but they showed up with waterpiks and cuisinarts. The horror.....the horror.....
My Religion is “Prepper” and their banning sales of precious bottled water is religious discrimination.
Where is the ACLU? Can they pickup the courtesy phone?
Yes, there is a Starbucks but it has a tiny parking lot because most of the people that go there ride bicycles. The men wear Birkenstock sandals and the main drag in town has all these quaint shops (example below) with overpriced items.
Liberals are busy bodies. It’s always one excuse or another.
What will happen is that Concord shoppers will go to neighboring towns where they can buy their water without harassment.
