You could have voted for Ron Paul, Mickey Mouse, or yourself.

Are you saying you are also a lying scheming etc?


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.

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.


You may be right, I have almost certainly given up hope in the system as it stands, it comes with the feeling however that what "the people say, think and feel" no longer matters.....

perhaps that is in error on my part, I will concede enough to admit that.

I didn't see any cost of this shindig in the source. Anyone know what this cost?


anyone in attendance believes themselves above anything cheap so I'm assuming somewhere around $20 Million dollars.

This is all very interesting... But I have found something strange. I was scrolling down the article Obama inauguration 2013 casually inspecting the photo's. As it per usual it went something like this - famous, rich and famous - president - famous....


DEMONS

I am sure it cost more than my family will earn in the next 4 years. It must be nice to spend money like it isn't yours!


It is an afterthought. Buying things with other peoples money always is.

To respond to the OP. I find this offensive. Disgustingly so. In the present, there are innumerable problems facing the American nation. The waste of money that is this......party.....is a simply a spit in the face of the majority of Americans.

I might be wrong. I am willing to give the president the benefit of the doubt. What I mean is that if the president can show that he paid for all of this with private funds, I will withdrawal my criticism. Until the president does so I must assume that he is paying for this event with the hard earned funds of the taxpayer.

s&f for the OP. sad how disconnected our "leaders" are. Judging from the replies here it seems most people are in agreement. That being said... it seems more and more that perhaps in a system with no hope as is.. that disconnected is not the proper word. I believe they know exactly what they are doing and they love living the high life on the backs and bodies of those they "serve" and those they send to war.

No 44th presidential inauguration ball will take place, instead we have decided to use the money to help desperate tax payers in need, as the president, I have also decided to take a $1 a year salary.

Unfortunately, you'll never see a president take a dollar a year salary, Lee Iaccocca never ran for president.

Do not EVER address him as Mr President....because he most definitely is not! Call him anything else you like, but that.

To the people saying this does not cost the taxpayers anything, you are wrong. No, the taxpayer did not pay for Gaga to show up, and yes corporations (via lobbyists) pay the bill for the gala. However, the taxpayer DOES foot the bill for things like security, city overtime, etc.
In fact, the Obama's are soaking the taxpayers to the tune of 1.4 billion dollars a year. So stop pretending his is not using our money to party while we have double digit unemployment. Of course some of you probably believe the official unemployment number and there is no hope for you.

Obama spend 1.4 Billion A Year

Well, like I said earlier, no fan of him. But, he did get elected (as far as we know), and he is holding the office. Therefore, he is the president and should be addressed as such.

These events are payed for with private funds. The premise of this thread is weak. It's another attempt at polarizing people with a faux scandal, while more serious events are taking place behind the scenes.
All rich, famous, and powerful people enjoy these kinds of peks, and the POTUS is no different. They all do it.
And guess what? If you were in his position, you'd be doing it too. The Bushes did it, Reagan did it....give me a break....

I'm just curious, as I look through all these photos, who is paying for this? I want to know how and why these people are partying until 3 am while the rest of the country can barely feed itself? The words "let them eat cake" come to mind as I sit here and truly wonder if these people really understand the significance of their actions.


No worrys

Obama’s inaugural festivities Monday are bankrolled by several of the nation’s most powerful corporate lobbying forces. Chief among corporate inaugural donors: AT&T Inc., Microsoft Corp., energy giant Southern Co., biotechnology firm Genentech and health plan manager Centene Corp.

Together, more than 300 registered lobbyists worked on the five companies’ behalf to influence legislation and government policy. Among numerous other influence efforts, Southern Co. lobbied the Executive Office of the President to curtail environmental regulations. AT&T pressed the Treasury Department to extend research and development tax credits and lobbied heavily — and unsuccessfully — to win regulatory approval of a merger with rival T-Mobile. Microsoft targeted the [federal government] for support in strengthening online piracy and intellectual property regulations.


Corporations mostly are flipping the bill this go around.

So you can stop complaining about how all you have is a moldy crust of bread and the rest went to Obama's finger sandwiches through taxes.



I adamantly disagree. This is another form of letting corporate America purchase policy. This is ridiculous that the people whom are suppose to represent the common man, piss down our backs and continue to tell us it's raining.

too bad president's wern't like role models, I remember when I was kid, we use to say "some day i'll be the president" or when I grow up i'll be the president, boy i'll tell ya that's the last thing I would ever want!

Granite I understand letting loose every now and then is good for you, but there is a time to play and a time to work.

You disagree with what? I didn't say anything to disagree with, just stopped the "they are partying using my tax dollars, =indignation=!" bit and put the convo on the right track. The party was mostly footed by CEOs and not the treasury

As far as how I feel about that...I am pretty well known on the record as being against corporate America having political influence overall.

Funny thing is Heisenberg it's the same people still supporting these political figures that are not doing a single thing to help them. I did not vote this term, why? Not because I couldn't make my mind up ( hell I helped put Obama in his first term , I also took the bait of "CHANGE") but because I'm convinced this is all going to crap sometime very soon and when it does I cation everyone do not jump on that train that is taking you to a safe place, I.E. a camp with barb wire facing in to supposedly keep you safe from people like me that will be in the front lines trying to take this country back.

Considering the amount of cash the government is likely to throw at the corps who funded this I wish it was funded directly by tax dollars.

Why do I get the feeling people wouldn't raise an eyebrow and
ask whose paying if it were Toby Keith at Romney's ?

Because you either:
A. are a democrat or anti-Romney orientated person
B. Live in Texas and assume that we all dislike Obama/like Romney for superficial reasons

I was all for Romney, and if Romney was doing what Obama was doing I would be in disgust with him too. If it was Romney, or anyone else instead of Obama at that party I would still have shared this information.

No, but who said the Obamas paid for their party? DIdn't you get the memo that some corporations footed the bill? Obamas got a lot of monied interests willing to sponsor him. Nevertheless, people foolishly believe that he is for the downtrodden "99%".


Ah yes, I just wanted to clarify on this.

reading all the books in the world won't persuade me to ignore or accept what is intrinsically wrong. 'your excellency', 'mr president' or whatever they choose to be addressed as all amounts to the same elitist crap. sickening immoral displays of contempt for the ordinary citizen deserve all the 'haters' they get. then and now.
