On Inaguration

$150 million dollars spent on a ridiculous pageantry that everyone could have just watched from home...

Congratulations to us we have our first black President. It is a good, historic thing...I just wish it was a different person to make it there...

Funny - Robert and Obama both stumbling over the Oath of Office

Confusing - Obama's speech seemed to be disconjointed and condratictory ('We will not apologize for our way of life,...America must play its role in ushering in a new are of peace' and goes on to list the things that we need to change to help the world)

Offensive - Joseph Lowery's benediction - a clip - 'Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around... when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right. That all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen. Say Amen'...

Completely uncalled for - Former President Bush being mocked and booed as he enters the Inaguration

What did you think about the historical events of today?

For view at my own feelings you can find them here or just ask me about them.
