President Obama's 2nd Inauguration 2013

Just a series of videos and photographs celebrating the second inauguration of Barack Obama. Feel free to add more.

Inauguration 2013: Bernice King Reflects on Obama Using the King Bible


The Texas Oil Men that Eisenhower warned us about. The relatiionship between the energy companies,

Middle Eastern tyrants and looting and war is well-established. The fastest way to make a fortune is through war, it is all blood money of a sort. Destroy people by bombs or robbing the treasuries and run away with the resources. Except the Bush regime stole faster than any other in history and bankrupted the world. Not only did they steal money. oil and lives but the future lives of millions here and in Middle East.

I watched the evil unfold, all cheered by the entertainment industry to the news and thought, they are showing us what monsters we can be, taking us to the pit. They are destroying America's best ideals, making a mockery of everything to bring their dystopia for us and utopia for the super rich. They are doing it before our eyes, asking us to accept it.

I asked, is mankind learning at last to put this behind us? Will we have to be utterly destroyed to learn?

I saw the procession from beginning through the swearing in with Shrub looking scared shitless.

They had snipers on rooftops and even flew planes overhead, full bananarepublic style and it was a disgrace. The crowds booed and the limo stoped from the pelting, like it wasn't going to happen. Brokaw whining about the profanities from the crowd, but he hadn't talked, none of them did, about Delay's Brooks Brothers riot of paid congressional staffers interfering with the vote counting. Of course, the media is fine with that, and they didn't report the voter disenfranchisement last year, either.
Okay if the GOP stops the voters. I was watching it on the major channels and CNN. Before they went GOP.

I remember watching it on cable, incensed. Brokaw clutching his pearls was disgusting.

The air was thick with outrage. I saw the cars stop from the pelting. Unheard of that they got aways with it... Americans were not fooled, most of them. With all the scandals from his friends coming out, I thought Bush would not last a year until 911 and then he was golden in the media. Then they were cheering the wars and pumping up neo-cons. Now we see none of these characters, except in their protected circles in media and private organizations. For the most part, they have slunk off to undisclosed locations to enjoy their plunder.

Yes, let's keep the spirit of the campaign alive:

As George Washington said:

As Mankind becomes more liberal, they will be more apt to allow that all those who conduct themselves as worthy members of the community are equally entitled to the protections of civil government. I hope ever to see America among the foremost nations of justice and liberality.

Obama is this type of Liberal:

I've always been proud to be a Liberal.

Obama: Entitlements ‘Do Not Make Us A Nation Of Takers’

Source: Talking Points Memo

President Obama defended the idea of entitlements like Medicare and Social Security in his second inaugural address Monday, arguing that these programs strengthen the nation and free Americans to "take the risks that make this country great."

"We reject the belief that America must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. For we remember the lessons of our past, when twilight years were spent in poverty, and parents of a child with a disability had nowhere to turn."

He continued:

"We do not believe that in this country, freedom is reserved for the lucky, or happiness for the few. We recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us, at any time, may face a job loss, or a sudden illness, or a home swept away in a terrible storm. The commitments we make to each other – through Medicare, and Medicaid, and Social Security – these things do not sap our initiative; they strengthen us. They do not make us a nation of takers; they free us to take the risks that make this country great."

Thanks, EarlG for the pic of the day.

Tomorrow night, a similar scene.

Thanks Kath1 and my friends at the BOG.

On that same note, here's one I hadn't posted yet.

That is unconditional love. It frees us. You can't give what you don't have and those who refuse to be liberated from hatred are missing something wonderful.

Misery is easy to create. It's the tool of the maliciously lazy. Happiness takes work, it is the reward for a life being well lived. Make the choice to not let others steal your hard earned joy. Take the negative energy they fill you with and create something beautiful. ~ Anon.

The love that you withhold is the pain that you carry lifetime after lifetime.
~ Alex Collier.

My only regret is I can't vote for him again.... Wish it was 8 more years! But here we go!
