Well, well, well. The Ragnarok of the Obama Presidency has hung over the heads of the Freepers for some months now. Finally, they can see it moving in to crush them like a Pink Floyd-powered planetoid. This would be a time that tries their souls, if any of them hadn’t sold theirs for a promise of the Permanent Republican Majority(tm).
Well, iso suits on and double sealed – there’s enough wailing and rending of garments going on over there to keep a sackcloth and ashes salesman in business for a decade.
First –So – any other Freepers going to be cowering under blankets on Inauguration day?

Are there any brave Freepers out there planning on risking their intelligence and sanity by watching “The Triumph of the Will” (aka the Obama Inauguration)?
I myself will be on the beach in Gulf Shores listening to old time rock and roll and pretending that this is all just a bad dream. I won’t let the A-C ruin my vacation!

We can do better than that.
To: DionysiusI was thinking of going on retreat at a monastery during that time, but I left it until too late and I couldn’t find one. I keep hoping this horrifying event won’t happen but I know it will.
So I plan to spend the entire day eitherworking (I’m self employed) and not looking at any propaganda source, or ifI don’t have a job that day, I plan to go and muck out the stall and paddock where my horse lives. Even that is preferable to seeing a third-world Marxist Muslim foreigner take over the government of the US.
To: DionysiusHey, let’s just furgetaboutit. Many of us have lived through the LBJ years, the 4 years of Jimmuh Carter, and the eight years of Bubba Clinton. This too shall pass, and the country will survive even Obama. So, plan a fun day of family activities for inauguration day, and don’t get depressed.BTW, do any of you sweetnesses know that occasionally the FBI does read here, and we’ve actually had a big-mouth blowhard Freeper get a home visit in 1998 from the Secret Service because he posted a stupid, rash, empty comment that suggested violence toward President Clinton. Everyone that knew the Freeper involved knew that the blowhard was the original Cowardly Lion, but the SS didn’t know that. In fact, the Cowardly Lion realized he’d gone too far, and asked for the post to be removed, and it was within 5 minutes, but the SS showed up anyway. He groveled and was forgiven, no charges, but it was something to remember.
