You're right except change capitalist society to corporatist society. How can we be capitalist with a centralized bank? We have had a central banking system for many decades (since 1914 I believe). So that kind of tells you something.



Same way Microsoft can be a person equal to Mike Smith. Just change the understanding and qualifications.

You know..how socialism and communism now is equal to a poor person having healthcare....meanings of words change the more stupid society becomes.

I think the problem is the American people see this and there is no outrage because they've been taught "if you work hard you can be there one day" but in reality, it's just teaching us to accept the endless rat wheel we've been placed on since birth. George Carlin once said "they call it the American dream because you have to be asleep to believe it" and truer words have never been spoken. The corruption runs deep in this country and millions go along with it on a daily basis hoping that one day they can be just like them.

I am of the opinion, that George Carlin though a comedian, as a person was one of the most down to earth and intelligent who has ever lived.

I am just waiting for the new Webster's Dictionary to come out, you know........the one that uses pictures instead of words (we as a society are not far off from mostly being illiterate). Obama's picture at this grand soiree, and his image at the 'nazi esque' inaugeration ceremony speaking before the hypnotized masses will be the definition of inappropriate.

He's the leader of a country, not a rock star, it's time he started to act like a leader.


This path is treading dangerously close to some of the worst displays of human cruelty ever imagined. I am talking about revolution. Revolutions of the past were not glamorous, in fact they were displays of ugliness on a massive scale and many innocents have died during them. One only need research the French Revolution, or the overthrow of the Russian Czar's to see examples of how a people at the end of thier rope snap and commit atrocities unimagineable. It wasn't just the person at fault who met the hangman's noose, it was entire families including women and children. I cannot think of these atrocities without great sadness for the children that never lived a full life and were victims of just being related to the wrong person. I hope I never have to personally witness something so awful in my lifetime.

I am not extremely religious, but I do pray......please let this not be the path we are on.

Private donators are paying for the inauguration party so what is the big deal? Even if it was tax-payer money this should be a minor concern for us. Much more important topics to focus on such as chopping down the DOD budget by 50%. I doubt democrats have what it takes though....

I have no idea what this "party" could/would cost or who pays for it.

I can say with 100% certainty that there are times that the White House hires entertainment (specifically the wednesday concert series the Obama House hosts or at least hosted at one time) and they do not pay the entertainment, they expect it to be done for free. I guess for the sheer honor of playing at the White House......I know this because I know someone who's agent was contacted to perform and this is what they were told. They declined.

Whille I'm glad that the taxpayers aren't footing the bill, I still don't think it's appropriate for the POTUS to be partying like this (given the state of the country).

Out President should lead by example. In a time where a large chunk of Americans are cutting back and rolling up their sleeves, Obama should be right along with them leading the charge.


He is leader of the country?


I thought the contributors of the democrat party like aipac, mcdonalds, ibm were the leaders


The same people who own the media and tell people whom to vote for by ignoring the other parties.

I appreciate the clarification. So lobbyists and companies working to lobby government policy and curry favor are footing the bill for Obama's partying and garish entertainment? Well, that beats it being my tax dollars.

Wait a sec... wasn't this supposed to be the White House that kept lobbyists out and turned a new leaf for blocking Special Interest influence and favoring within the system?


in 2009, ya

But Corporations are people now..you saying people aren't allowed to contribute?


Anyhow, welcome to America..money talks BS walks..Do I like it? nope..but whatever. its a capitalist society

Lobbiest lobbiest everywhere, and not a thought to think.


Its a-ok when republican "leaders" party but never ok for democrat "leaders" to party. Don't you know that by now? Jesus! I never vote for either so my concious is clear.

Does it matter who "paid for it"? Bet your ass it does because in the end no matter who officially signed the check it is the people of the country one way or another that in the end "foot the bill"!

All do respect to the OP. But we just had Hillary Clinton lie under oath to the Senate and the House and no one wants to talk about it. Yet, this thread regarding Gaga and wasteful WH spending garners 50 flags. Wow!! Where were you people when Obama was holding his regular Wednesday night Happy Hours and concert series in the White House during his first term in office?? BB King, Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, John Mellencamp etc etc Just to name a few.

BTW Egypt is eagerly awaiting its new shipment of F16's and 200 Abrams Tanks. All paid for by the US taxpayer!!

Be prepared for more of the same in the second term.... He's got nothing to lose and has the taxpayer to pay for his concerts and parties.

Whatever happened to this effort to cross the aisle? It went no where!!

One day after President Obama visited Capitol Hill, he is returning the favor by being host to about two dozen Democrats and Republicans on his turf. The event, scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m., is the first-of-a-kind gathering in the new administration and the latest sign that Mr. Obama is attempting to build relationships with Congress.

That was Feb 2009 and never happened again!

Partying is natural human behavior. It is what they do after the partying that matters most to me. In fact to be honest I hope both the president and vice president play lots and lots of golf. Maybe take trips to hawaii and tahiti with their respective wives.

Many times it is better to do nothing than do the wrong things. Both democrats and republican work against the people, not for them. What good can possibly come when they are at their office working? I fear them!

In fact gary johnson and the libertarians were on every ballot for the first time, if not for a long time ago.

People could have taken advantage of this and voted libertarians to washington, but no I guess the kool-aid was too much handle.

And even if the party is not on the ballot you can always write in the candidate you want. If it was easy for me to vote I would have voted spusa or constitution party, but I moved out of the states and have to sent absente ballots which is doubtful if they make the deadline in time, and even if the absentee ballots are even counted.

Just saying people have themselves to blame for the most part. And the lying media of course!

I would have voted for Ron Paul, but he was not even in the running. He did not get fair airtime and as a result had no realistic chance of winning. You can't win when lobbyists don't put cash into your campaign, and you can't win when the election process is in itself flawed (i.e. towns of 12000 population having 18000 votes). The voting process was simple, pure and honest when the country was formed, but has become twisted, vile and a sham in current times.

Typical! Keep in mind, this takes place in the WH every week. Concerts, parties, dinners etc... ALL on the tax-payer's dime.

These people DISGUST me! I can't wait for this country to FINALLY go bankrupt so we can take out the trash and begin anew!!!


Yep, these people are so out of touch with what this country is going through for the average American, and rather than show some semblance of concern, they party away on our tax payer dime. Monsters is what they are.

We don't NEED leaders that do nothing! This is why the country is the way it is! For cripes sakes, if they don't want the responsibilty they should not have petitioned for the job!

Everyday Americans are tired of this exact attitude and if something isn't done it will lead to destruction and chaos, that will be the end result!

That's my issue with it - Celebrating what exactly? Celebrating the sad state of affairs of the country?
Hellooooooo this country is in bad shape every which way. And these fools are celebrating?

Instead of celebrating, I would have liked to have seen President Obama sitting at his desk, working to help the Country correct its path. That would have been an iconic, time remembered photo of how our first black president spent his inauguaral night, instead of the usual inauguaral bash.

No, he decides to maintain the status quo. Disappointing...I guess Change ISNT something we can believe in.

I am not disagreeing with you but when evil people are at the helm, then I rather if they do nothing or at least as little as possible. They can't do anything properly. Just compounded mistakes which will hasten the fall of our dilipidated nation.

You are preaching to the choir. Sorry for my cynicism but it is sincere none-the-less.

Wonder how many other millions thought as you did and seen no viable path.

It was never about path to victory, it was a path to being noticed..and by not writing in the name, and giving a potential recognized number...you ultimately gave up your say.
