View Full Version : The Inauguration Ball

Reagan raised 47 million dollars for his Inauguaration Ball and Nancy wore a $10,000.00 dress.

Come on folks.

What is this?

High School?

The Prom?

The Coronation Ball?

The Homecoming King and Queen?

There are millions of citizens in this country who are SUFFERING because of the wealthy elitists who comprise our government and accomplish nothing for us, but only for themselves.

Anyone who watches the INAUGURATION BALL in awe while these elitists wine and dine with one another and celebrate the ushering into the Oval office of another elitist is not living in reality.

Someone in Obama's camp said that the President elect is aware of the suffering in our country, but American's like to indulge.


We won't be indulging.

Obama, his supporters, his contributors, the rest of the elitist crowd will be indulging.

We certainly won't be eating caviar.

What you meant to say was that YOU BELIEVE Americans like to watch the elitist's indulge while we suffer, didn't you?

You also said that to Americans our leaders are celebrities.


They are not.

We don't give a hoot about celebrities.

We give a hoot about the pain and suffering of our countrymen and we certainly have no desire to watch the next elitist/puppet, Barack Obama, ushered into the White House while he wines and dines with the rich and famous because, you see, the ECONOMY sucks at this point and millions of people have lost their jobs; many their homes; their health care and you sit on your perch OBAMA telling all of us how you are aware of our pain and suffering and yet those who are in office and charged with the task of easing our pain and suffering will wine and dine, dance and drink because they want for nothing and could care less about the American citizens.

Bush charged $250,00.00

Obama is charging $50,000.00 for a four day inauguration trip.

Wanna go?


I forgot.

I don't have $50,000.00.

Silly me.

I'm not rich or famous either.

Guess I'm out of the loop on this one.

For a mere 50K, you get a 4-day inauguration trip - Yahoo! News (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081213/ap_on_go_pr_wh/selling_the_inaugural)

Sounds like a very expensive cruise trip.

It is being reported that Obama's Inauguration Ball(s) will be the costliest in the history of our country.

Apparently, every President raises money for his BALLS, but, obviously, not enough to cover the entire bill.

So, who picks up the rest of the tab?

Anyone know?

I can't even believe the amount of people who march to Washington to celebrate this event.

Just goes to show how many people are living in a "fantasy" world.

Seems to me Obama is more a part of the entertainment industry than he is a part of the political machine judging by the number of celebrities who were there to kiss his feet.

The following article states that the Inauguration is paid for by the Inauguration Committee, but fails to inform us from whom the Inaugural Committee receives their funds, other than stating that Obama has raised forty-one million dollars for the event.


That falls short of the reported $150 million that it will cost.

So, who foots the bill for the remaining $109 million dollars?

The article also reports that it cost the District of Columbia $47 million dollars.


If it cost the District of Columbia $47 million dollars, I would surmise that would mean that it cost the taxpayers $47 million dollars.

I dunno.

Maybe the FED powered up their printing presses and handed over $47 million dollars to the District of Columbia under Congress' approval as a bail-out.

This is ridiculous.

Millions of people in our country are suffering and our newly elected President has the nerve to surround himself with the rich and famous.

It would have been better had he just had a backyard bar-b-que and left the Hollywood elites at home.

It don't impress me much.
