RE: Waste of money
I read somewhere not too long ago about how much is spent on the inaugural proceedings. I might be wrong here but I'm not going to look it up, that something like 53 million dollars was spent for Obama's inauguration.

53

Million

Dollars .

On a ceremony that could be held in a high school gym and televised.

How much random good could be done with that kind of money instead of wasted on this kind of needless and forgettable pomp? It blows my mind.

The article that I was reading was talking about how Trump intended to be even more outlandish with his inaugural spending. Makes sense, I mean it is Trump after all.

Gonna get hard to work on fixing our country by having the most extravagant bullshit ceremony to celebrate his victory.

It was wrong that Obama did it, and it's just as wrong that Trump will. Just not unexpected for a man like him.

This is why we can't have nice things. (well, you and me that is)

God save the king.

Edit: Okay I looked it up and I was way fucking wrong. Try 160 million. Fucking Christ.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
