Quote# 56843

One need only look at other socialist governments to see how the money is spent on pomp and circumstance, while the common people hurt for necessities.

And remember, since this inauguration was declared a state of emergency, Obama enters office under those terms. He is a sitting dictator, able to bypass Congress and the Justice Dept, until he declares the emergency over.

Jesus Christ! Just STFU already!!! He's not a fucking socialist! There are no socialist politicians in America. Just because he wants to make the system more fair for those in the middle class doesn't mean that he is a socialist. Learn some fucking political history for once in your life.

1)Scandinavia would like a word with you on that "common people hurt for necessities" part...

2)Obama is not a socialist. He'd be considered right-of-center everywhere else in the Western World

3)the state of emergency was declared for the duration of the Inauguration only. and it was declared so by Shrub.

Wasn't it Bush who nearly attained dictatorship?

It's true we have a form of socialdemocracy, which actually has meant better chance for the common people to have the necessities... and more. Maybe daffodyllady was thinking of North Korea or something, which is a different matter.

it seems like fundies repackaged the arguments against Bush, added the word socialist to them, and are now using them against Obama. Fucking morons.

What state of emergency??? Are you referring to the fact that some roads and bridges in Washington, D.C. were closed for a few hours on January 20?

>>> What state of emergency???

Bush declared the inauguration a state of emergency so that DC would have access to federal funds. The expectation was that the number of people coming to watch would overwhelm the local police force.

It was in effect from the 17th through the 21st so it's over now.

No, no, it wasn't "declared a state of emergency", that kind of thing usually makes the national news. Quit lying. Jesus HATES LIARS.

I'm writing this comment on my state sponsored iPhone 'cause I'm too lazy to get up and go to my state sponsored computer. Thank Gawd for my state sponsored WIFI, eh? - Yeah, that's right, bitch, the state is not only paying for my education they're also sending me money as long as I'm in school. It's one of the rights I have in my little Scandinavian socialist hell hole. Too bad I don't live in God's own country - I would have loved working full time next to my studies and still not being able to buy decent shit. Oh, the pain of it all.

oh, she most certainly meant that. problem is, it's not the socialism part that causes this problem, it's the totalitarian part.

on the other hand, who knows. she might well think Sweden & co are really that backwards. I think it was O'Reilly who wrote an editorial last year about how all Swedes are suicidal because they don't believe in god.

According to a bit of research, Bush's 2nd inauguration cost $157 million, and Obama's possibly slighty more, in the region of $170 million. Taking inflation into account they were pretty much equally expensive, so your argument doesn't hold. Also, in both cases the actual cost was offset by donations, which were probably higher in Obama's case.

Besides, even at $170m this would cover the cost of your war effort in Iraq/Afghanistan for about 25 hours (at roughly $110,000/min) - so it's not like you haven't got money to spare.
