I've got a class scheduled for 12:20. It has been rescheduled for 1 instead!

Hell no, I won't go.

Heard from an employee at another hospital ... Secret Service called to do a services assessment ... how many medical beds do you have, how may psych beds, what's the surge capacity of your emergency room ... this other hospital is 150 miles away. I guess that this is called planning for the worst case scenario.

"We've heard they've also put up all the threatening nuts in hotels." I didn't know we had that many hotels in America.

It doesn't seem too hard to get an invite, seating is somewhere around the capitol...you could be standing in one direction or the other....
SPUCK Tuesday Jan 20 05:59 AM
Yeah! Go to the inauguration! Feel the genuine history of what a gold rush pioneer felt like every time he went to town to buy food...

Check eBay for all the others.

But don't you think the news media just might cover this event?

It'll be Washington's Woodstock! I was there, I was there, Me too!

I'll be glad when the honeymoon is over, so I won't have to hear the media gushing 24/7
wolf Tuesday Jan 20 02:38 PM
I just hope that it ends. I'm presuming that the gushing will continue through any awful, stupid, damaging thing that he does.

I have watched and waited for so long for Americans to take back the ownership of their Country. I feel that we have now reached that point where we can begin to build upon the foundation built by our Founding Fathers.

why does this thread give me deja vu?
BobT Tuesday Jan 20 06:49 PM
Ronald Ragan once said that "Government IS the problem". He was right. Under Bush the Government abdicated its responsibility to protect the Citizens of the Country from the unbridled avarice of big business. The Country was left without a leader, as Bush took less government to its ultimate by giving us no leadership or oversight.

I wonder if obama will allow another [substandard mortgage scam] which , while making realtors and loan czars wealthy, is the main goddam reason we're in this crap.
BobT Tuesday Jan 20 08:46 PM
I started my Mortgage Company in 1989, before that I was a Commercial Lender since 1975. So, as you can see, I have made a life long carrer in the HONORABLE profession of lending money. There are honest profits to be made in the banking industry. The fact that the Republican administration abdicated its responsibility of properly regulating that industry is an entirely different issue. I appologize to no one for my profession.

Hey Bob, I hate to interupt, but I have to laundry so I can go to work tomorrow. Do you mind getting off the soap box?
capnhowdy Tuesday Jan 20 08:59 PM
Took me two scotches and a deleted post to recover.
monster Tuesday Jan 20 09:15 PM
Hey guys, instead of berating Bob, why not just direct him to the politics forum where he can soapbox and debate to his heart's content, and better still be welcomed to do so? the Cellar isn't just aboout images, although that is how most of us find it in the first place....

How refreshing it was, to see a president gracefully step down from office after peacefully ending his term, WITHOUT spending his last few hours in office selling 140 presidential pardons to criminals.

Heh, poor Obama. Just before Bush got into the helicopter and finally left he hugged Michelle and said "I'll keep in touch, I promise."

I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo tired of the words Barack & Obama. Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo tired.
