Gosh damn they are administering the oath of office and we have not heard The National Anthem during these ceremonies. He is now president without it having played, but trumpets are blaring as is 'Hail The Chief'. I suppose now that I give it a moments reflection this should come as no surprise concerning the man who refused to wear an American Flag lapel pin and who refused to place his hand over his heart during the singing of The National Anthem. As I said, maybe it is never sung at the inauguration, but I certainly think it should be sung. Now his acceptance speech - maybe The National Anthem, and a thought for our country, will come after that.
As for now, his speech is scary already - too expensive health care, our decline is inevitable, our use of energy feeds our enemies - etc. Welcome to the Socialist States of America is all I can forsee. Heck, did he just call us childish at least by implication when quoting scripture? Heavens help us....... Well at least he is acknowledging the sacrifice of those who worked and died for our Country. I guess one has to hope, but I don't have a whole lot of it as for this administration being good for our country especially with his remaking America comment. Note he did not say imrpoving it, or fixing it, or anything that would indicate that it at least at one time had been great - he said remake it - as if it was never good enough in the first place.
Gotta go to work, no time to listen to more of his speech.All the best,
