Obama Inauguration

Total pricetag north of 150 million dollars. Bush's 4 years ago was 40 million. Check out the letter a Democratic Senator sent to Bush about the "extravagant" cost. And uh, - aren't we still at war?

REP. WEINER’S LETTER TO PRESIDENT BUSH ASKING THAT INAUGURAL FUNDS BE USED FOR THE TROOPS

President George W. Bush
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C. 20500

Dear Mr. President:

The festivities surrounding your inauguration later this month are slated to cost $40 million – making this the most expensive inauguration in history. I urge you to re-direct those funds towards a use more fitting to these sober times – bonuses or equipment for our troops.

Precedent suggests that inaugural festivities should be muted – if not cancelled – in wartime. In the midst of World War II, President Roosevelt held his 1945 inaugural at the White House, making a short speech and serving guests cold chicken salad and plain pound cake. During World War I, President Wilson did not have any parties at his 1917 inaugural, saying that such festivities would be undignified.

Furthermore, $40 million could provide substantial support for our troops overseas. For example, we could buy armor for 690 unarmored humvees or provide a $290 bonus for each member of the armed services station in Iraq.

Please re-direct all the funds raised for the inauguration to our brave men and women in uniform.

Look what he spent to get elected. It makes total sense to me. We are in a financial crunch, but fuck it... It's likely his term will be one big hollywood production. I've seen nothing to prove otherwise. Appointing folks in top positions with little or no experience, much like himself. At least it will be pretty...

I was flipping through channels a little while ago and one of the DCC channels was showing footage of one of the Nuremburg Rallies. I watched the whole thing and I tell you, the similarities were astonishing. I couldn't help but wonder what statement they were making by deding to show this footage just before this Inauguration. Really makes you think how people are worshipping this guy what they are willing to support him on. The people loved Hitler too.

You should watch some of the propoganda movies.

Whats the "Intichrist?
Antichrist is what you meant and yes that has crossed my also. The way the people are blinded, ignorant and don't care about his past or the crap he plans to do is scary. Blind faith with their hands out FTL.

Probably a little closer to Hitler than Damien, but point well taken.
