Change? I ain't seein' it so far...

It's been awhile since I stirred the pot, got a bee in my (or others') bonnet, or otherwise caused a ruckus with my opinions.

So here goes...
It was all about CHANGE. Wasn't it?

Well here's a change I, for one, would really like to see.

Treat the Office of the Presidency with respect, honor and humility... not a red carpeted Hollywood event.

I have been looking forward to walking through this inauguration celebration with the Crumb Snatchers. I love the fact the first big historical milestone they will remember forever is a very good one. We all have the big ones in our own lives. Where were you when Reagan was shot? Where were you on 9-11?
I am thrilled my kiddos' first will be, "Where were you the day the first black president was sworn in?"

I love the fact inauguration is like a week-long celebration of renewal. I love the feeling of cleaning house, starting fresh. (stay with me here, all you doubters) I love Washington D.C. and all it's trappings of pomp and circumstance. However, I have not been thrilled with the celebrations thus far...

Call me cranky, a kill-joy, boring, too traditional, whatever you must. I do not give a rat's ass what Bono Fido Lunatic, Sheryl Crows Non-Stop Liberalism, Tom no tHanks, or (bless his precious pea-picker I do truly love him) Tiger, George cLooney Bin, Usher, Denzel or any other celebrity has to say about the duties and responsibilities of the President of the United States. I really don't.

The last Prez we had who treated the White House like a Hollywood Hooter's turned it into a revolving door of self indulgence, celebrity entertainment and a Secret Service nightmare.

I so hope Elect does not continue on the path his planners seem to have him on...

I understand he has to give kudos, earned air time and credit to all the Hollywood Lefties who helped get him where he stands...I do.

But, I so hope he ends it there.

Please, please Mr. President-Elect do not allow Hollywood to move in with you on Tuesday. Cause, you know that other half of America that didn't want you? Well, we all feel the same about this issue and we are all watching to see what your first few decisions say about you and your loyalties.

Por Favor?








Love Note to my Big Shooter: You're suuuure it's okay to share your most embarrassing moment of the weekend with everyone tomorrow? Really sure? Cause, if you are...I'm sharing. And y'all, it has everything in common with Obama's CHANGE, and HOPE, and PROGRESSION, and ALTERNATIVES. Because I hope Big Shooter changes his progression or he will be livin' in alternative housing.

Honestly...
I have seen tid-bits. Re-caps on the news... but I have not been watching round the clock.

I do think this is the big party before everyone has to get down to business. There is alot to do to get this country back in order and I am with you... I hope it happens... and fast.

Let's not 'Hollywood it up' too much. Don't get me wrong... I love actors and actresses... in the theater or on DVD. Not in Washington DC.

Don't forget the cost of this thing either.....$140 million and rising! The last inauguration was only $40. I will not be watching.

FerLee said...

I, too, will not be watching this inauguration. To me the whole thing is a big show...I mean the WHOLE thing!!! This morning I heard how he, BO, compares himself to Lincoln. Lincoln...SERIOUSLY?!?!?!?!?

I don't think he would have had the guts to take this country into a civil war to stand for what is right...Lincoln...Don't think so!!!!

Posts like this are why I started reading you. Love it.

I'm just peeved that I won't get to see American Idol tomorrow. I know that sounds pitiful.

But, I'm not sure that I can stomach watching the inauguration.

I want to hear about BS's embarrassing moment!

It's the Clinton Years Part Two will Will I Am in the Hoouuuse!

You made some great points here. I hope it isn't all hollywood for four years either.

Even though I didn't vote for him, I will be praying he leads our country in the right direction.
