What happens when you give ultimate power and unlimited wealth to a black man? He invites all his homies to his crib and pops open the Cristal and throws a huge party, that’s what:
President Barack Obama’s inauguration next week is set to be the most expensive ever, predicted to reach over $150m (£102m). This dwarfs the $42.3m spent on George Bush’s inauguration in 2005 and the $33m spent on Bill Clinton’s in 1993.
$150M dollars. Just let that sink in for a moment. That’s the salaries of roughly 3,500 jobs that pay $35k a year plus benefits, pissed away in 5 days.
Obama today issued a statement calling on people across the nation to participate by holding their own neighbourhood events, including their own balls. [...]
Did Obama just call on me to hold my own balls? We, the tax-paying public, don’t even get a reach-around?
Now I’ve heard enough.
