    Did you even read your first post?

    yea, how dare anyone but a member of the old white guy cult get elected to the most powerful nation on the planet for the first time after said nation enslaved and disenfranchised nonwhites for most of its history?
    What are you trying to state here, if not something with a racial tone?

    Wait, what? You tellin' me anyone who dislikes Obama is likely a racist? That's fucking convenient for him, isn't it.

    I don't think the National emergency is about race and I think we all do our intelligence a diservice to reduce it to that level.

    Whenever you have a large gathering of people in one spot there will be all kinds of human life emergencies and somebody's just trying to take care of people, for Gawd's sake.

    of course this celebration is partially about race, but always?

    Anything Obama related is usually accompanied by race, and quite frankly, I don't think most intelligent people care. And if they do, they should be ignored.

    an event drawing hundreds of thousands of people to over a million will generate so much tax revenue that 15 million will be a drop in the bucket. Hotels all over the area are expected to be booked full and that is after doubling or tripling their rates. Tourism is an important industry for DC.

    the war efforts in iraq cost magnitudes of 15 million every single day, yet i do not see any of the critics of this inauguration daily criticizing its cost.
    I don't know what the hell you're trying to say in the first paragraph, but my point was that if you don't watch the pennies, the dollars are going to get away from you. And what exactly would be the point in criticizing the cost of the war? That's beating a VERY dead horse.

    BTW, not that it should matter, but I voted for Obama and I still find this rather shameful.

    i disagree. there is quite a bit to criticize about him. i havent been feeling his cabinet that well, but come on, this day is symbolic. There are still many people alive who were prevented from voting because of their race. One of the murdered men responsible for fighting for their right to vote coincidentally is also celebrated at this time.

    most intelligent people can probably not care about his race and yet still understand the symbolism for others for this event.
