the inauguration

Yeah, I'm watching it. And I've got something to say to all the pucker-butts and whinebags out there who wanted it cancelled or said it cost too much money: You are flaming assholes.

This isn't a coronation of King George, no matter how many people are stupid enough to believe that flapdoodle. The inauguration is a celebration of stable government and the peaceful transfer of power, which this country has done after democratic elections for more than 200 years. And it's worth every penny of $40 million to see that keep happening.

Some people just don't know how lucky they are to live in the United States of America.


And the whiners seem to ignore the fact the money is all privately donated.

Did you know that if you factor in Inflation Clintons ball cost more that Bush's has?

On this day, prescribed by law and marked by ceremony, we celebrate the durable wisdom of our Constitution, and recall the deep commitments that unite our country. I am grateful for the honor of this hour, mindful of the consequential times in which we live, and determined to fulfill the oath that I have sworn and you have witnessed.

I liked this first line of his speech after he finished with the pleasantries.

People also forget the money isn't going into a hole in the ground - it's going back into the economy. People are getting paid to provide services and they in turm will pay taxes on the income, and buy goods and services for themselves. Its one of the capitalist principles we thrive on.

THAT'S why you can't talk to a leftist if YOU have a lick of sense. Assholes don't wanna talk sense.

$40 million goes into this party. Private donations. Payola, really. Fine.

But stiffing D.C. for somewhere between $12 million and $17 million for the inauguartion's security costs, because the Administration wants to save a little money? That's cheap-ass crap. You throw a party, you pay for it. And the Administration is telling the most likely terrorist target in the country that they have to use their anti-terrorist money to pay the party guards. This is the first time the feds have refused to pay for inauguration security. Ever.

So we can bump that "cheaper than Clinton's" $40 million party up to over $50, and closer to $55 million.

Cheap bastards. Just a taste of things to come.

I didn't realize any power was being transferred in this inauguration.
