Didn't see much but a bit of the parade after the ceremony... daily grind to attend to & all that. No politician's hot-air fest is worth taking a day off for, either.
Heard a re-play of the speach on my way home.
"Glittering Generalities" is a phrase which comes to mind.
What else has an inaugural speech ever
been, though ?
I've been taking responsiblity all my life.
Let him tell it to the 535 mental defectives we're forced to call the US Congress, who got us into the mess we're in, and then decided making a bigger mess was the way to fix it.
Let him tell it to the greedy rich pukes who wailed that regulations shackled the free market & then went crying to "mama gov't." to save their asses when they went too far out on the limb & it broke as it must.
Let him tell it to the third generation welfare pukes who have grown up believeing it's their constitutional right to get a check, and alcoholic/druggies sucking SSDI.
Also, he can shove all that crap about "how we use energy strengthening our enemies...blah, blah, blah..."
No doubt it is, but screw some psychotic government plan to bilk the taxpayers to pay God knows what for some "alternative energy" boondoggle that won't do anything but raise the amount of money it costs just to get by.
Sink them fuckin' domestic wells.
Build them goddam nuke plants.
There's your energy independence in a nutshell.
Guess we'll just have to wait & see what comes of this "historic election".
