"Enough is enough?" Sorry friend, it has just begun. A new day. A new leader. Obama's speech was infinitely inspirational, and the whole idea is to come together, not pull apart... some will never want that... we can only hope that those who are ready to move forward out number those who do not. I for one also call it like i see it, and i see a new day for America.

i was wrong about the $20,000,000, I just heard on the radio it's actually closer to $100 million. and I'm not on a mission to "tear down Obama", but rather just to show that I'm not sold on him. reason being...What has he ever done? When he got into the Senate in illinois(I know I wrote congress before, my bad, typo) he spent most of his time getting ready for his presidential run, and not so much being a senator. I'll admit that a 3 year old could have done a better job than Bush, but I can't understand why everyone in the media is acting like all the countrys problems are solved. On paper, believe it or not, Bush is actully about 100 times more qualified to be president. As we found out in the last 8 years, he was not qualified for the job, and showed it. As I said on here before, I think ANYONE the Demos ran against the Repubs would have won the election, but does that really mean they are the right person for the job? I look at the Obama situation like a last place NFL team drafting a star quarterback with the #1 pick, and finding out when the season started, this guy is not who they thought he was, when they finish in last place. USA is the Lions, Obama is McCoy, Sanchez, or whoever you feel is the top pick, but do you really think they'll take the lions to superbowl? at least any time soon? I for one, do not.

AND STILL, $20 or $100 MILLION, DO YOU STILL FEEL THIS WAS MONEY WELL SPENT? why won't anyone ansewer that question?

Also, I feel the nations needs more options when it comes to choosing who will lead our country. the 2 choices we have right now are like one or the other. They're needs to be more options when voting on OUR FUTURES.

its not for us to decide whether it was money well spent or not, the people that donated the money made that decision.

you haven't addressed my question about why spending that money is bad for economy.

the money bho spent wouldnt b so bad if we didnt have to hear how awful bush was for spending a 3rd as much 4 years ago and also i live in illinois and our stae is suffering and bho is a contributing factor. as far as bush goes he liberated 50 million people. 50 million people. and u libs want to talk about coming together why didnt you want to come together 4 or 8 years ago. oh because it wasnt your side i see change is good when you want some one else to change but not yourselves very selfish

When the Triboro Bridge changed its name to the RobertF. Kennedy Bridge, it cost New York City 4 million dollars. To inaugerate Barak Obama it cost all the charitable donors, and the United States of America 170 million dollars, The 2008 election was the most expensive election ever... I gotta' get a job... I hope I can find work suitable for all the dollars I spend on concerts, beer, and gas. I hope there will be places to park my VW bus in Wooster Massachusetts when The Dead cruise into town. I hope I can find fellow riders to split gas and cruise with me from Colorado to Hampton for those coveted Phish shows, I hope my VW will run well this June, I hope Bonnaroo wont be hot, sticky, and muddy, and I will enjoy my first time at that festival, I hope Bella Fleck and The Flecktones tour this summer.... I hope The Dead play Estimatted Prophet, and Scarlet/Fire....

STATZ-I am not at all against spending money on the economy, but why not have the gala for under 10 million, and pump the rest of that money into helping small businesses keep thier doors open, or how about maybe helping people pay thier bills so they won't lose thier houses tomarrow? those are just 2 ideas, and i'm sure many people have many others that are even better than mine. Fact is, He's been their 1 day, and spent over $100 million on something that is history tomarrow. He didn't use that money to create more jobs, fix poor public schools, or even fix roads that(if you live in chicago) are becoming undriveable because of all the potholes. But he got Stevie Wonder, Bruce, and a deal with HBO. MONEY WASTED. hope that ansewers your question.

HBO bought the rights to record and broadcast the entire "Gala", and sure as your born, it WILL be available on the shelves of your local retail DVD supplier, priced to sell of course. I DO NOT know for sure, but I'm guessing Obama is getting a cut of those DVD sales. Blago put a price on polotics, and we're making him pay for it now, but at the same time, although different circumstances, isn't selling the rights to HBO putting a price on polotics as well? think about it.

Was that an inauguration, or did I just go to church? What happened to separation of church and state? How long will we be before we see an Agnostic or Atheist in the White House? We love to bash certain Middle Eastern countries when they mix politics with religion. But it's OK for us to do? Hell, one of the reasons we seceded from England was to escape the religious persecution practiced by the Monarchy.

He could've used that party money to save my public state college from a 23 million dollar budget cut that will most likely force our school to have larger classes, layoff teachers, and cut many majors. The statewide budget cut due to a dwindling economy is estimated to be around 321 million... Hope the party's awesome? now I don't really know where all this money is going, but i hope it makes it's way into AZ education

Childoger: if you want to run w/ the NFL analogy i think it's a good one, but you've got it all wrong. We didn't draft a QB, we hired a new President of our team (read as GM or Executive Vice Prez in NFL world). And no, we won't win the Super Bowl in just one year, but look what Bill Parcels did for the Dolphins. He got hired and they went from a one win season to the playoffs in just a single year. The USA won't be the greatest country in the world and we won't gain the respect of the world in just one year - and maybe not in just one term - but like the Fins, we are back in the game baby!

No, Andy, you're not getting this right. It's not about me changing anything, it was about me quoting the 'Free Hat' episode of South Park. I'm as politically involved as the next guy, but when I want to debate politics, I go to Politico. I come to Jambase to read about music and musical culture. Settle down people. The article mentions Obama, but it isn't "about" Obama. I hate people who think that, just because they consider themselves Libertarians or they vote for Ralph Nader every 4 years, they should start going on and on about their political leanings whenever they think that they've got an audience. There are different forums for different issues. Find them. Notice I didn't mention who I voted for. This oversight didn't make me collapse or spontaneously combust, believe it or not. It's actually pretty easy to leave your political sentiments at the door.

The inauguration ceremonies and the pre celebration party at the Lincoln memorial were all put on by the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies (JCCIC) and the Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC). Everything is planned and executed by these two committees, all money donated by individuals is used at the discretion of these two parties; essentially meaning that the money is not B.H. Obama's but belongs to these committees (including the money HBO payed for the rights to the concert; Clinton's inauguration concert (1993) rights were also bought by HBO). So, chidodger, the fact of the matter is that B.H. Obama probably would like to use that money for "pumping up the econonmy," but it is ultimately not his decision; perhaps you should bitch to Senators Diane Feinstein, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and others that served on these committees. Just calling it like it is.

Relax, Andy. Perhaps "hate" might have been a strong word. But I do find it extremely irritating and I find it hard to believe that JamBase.com is a good place for more political polarization. Now people are just insulting each other when we could just as easily be discussing the Adam Freeland video. Religion and politics, two things I try to avoid talking about when people don't want to listen.

*chidodger - "On paper, believe it or not, Bush is actully about 100 times more qualified to be president. As we found out in the last 8 years, he was not qualified for the job, and showed it." And in the same breath you want to know what Obama was done to prove he's qualified. Well, clearly we've determined that it doesn't matter what you've done or what's "on paper," right? So keep your criticisms to yourself FOR NOW and let's see what happens.

*I'm a third party person myself but a few things are true: 1) A lot of people are feeling very uplifted right now about the outlook for this country and that's good. 2) It's nice to have a President who speaks and otherwise performs well as a figurehead. 3) Obama can't be blamed for the system he doesn't control, ie. the inauguration, selling rights to HBO, etc. It's a boon for the economies in DC/MD/VA and beyond, so what's so bad about that?

*And finally, daveapaug, I agree with you. BUT Obama did include "non-believers" in the "we are a nation of..." portion of his speech and that's more than we've gotten before. Baby steps. :)

Statz - Bush did have an economic stimulus plan last year that cost a lot AND IT DID NOT WORK!!!! You are right about that. And Obama is proposing the SAME THING only it costs much more money. How is that "change"? Let's see... His sec of treasury didn't pay taxes for 3 years but that is nothing more than an embarrassment. His choice for the head of the fed is an ex NY fed head. He wants to escalate the two front war in Afghanistan and Pakistan when Iraq clearly didn't work and just turns MORE people to terrorism. He is waiving back and forth on whether he is really going to take us out of Iraq anyways! He is saying that the citizens of the US must take more responsibility yet he is adamantly protecting the federal reserve and private bankers who are ACTUALLY responsible for the crisis we are in... He is our president and I will give him a chance... But he isn't giving me much to be excited about. I just hope he lives up to his promise and makes better foreign relations with the world. But if you are all disappointed, don't blame me, I voted for Ron Paul (And my girl voted for Nader :) ). Chidodger - It's ok sir. They just call me a tinfoil hat conservative although I am not. I am proud that there are common sense liberals who don't blindly follow the leader - the green party. I look froward working with you my friends when the world finally realizes how evil and homogenized the current 2 (one) party system is... I don't know if it is his taunting picture or his snotty comments, but I really would love to see something very painful and demoralizing happen to this benjaminhuman character.

Oh and BTW you are all perfect examples of what is wrong with the current 2 (one) parties. You are chastising chidodger like he is a Bush loving neocon. He believes in the same ideals as all of you - he just sees past the rhetoric and broken promises. You can't take that though. It is totally OK for you all to blindly follow the leader without question and hang on to his only word, but when one of your own calls him out you immediately shun him.

You guys have way too much time on your hands to dissect a letter rather than to dissect a novel. There's a big picture going on here with Barack Obama. He inspires hope and change because he has promised those things in very concrete ways. Look it up, I'm not going to lay it all out. If you want the next President to be an atheist of Jewish dissent who looks like a Native American, speaks 10 languages, shits gold, and pisses a cure for cancer, then you are a foolish, impatient person. Barack Obama has promised us something different and something positive in a time that demands remarkable and immediate change in course or else we will suffer our demise (my opinion). If you want to sit around and quibble over how American citizens spend their money, then take it up with those individuals. Be inspired. Be skeptical, most definitely. But be happy, too.

Willie Nelson for President. I mean honestly...that makes more sense than anything I have read on here. I think some folks are fed up with the love affair over the new President. Its like the...I liked that band until everyone started liking that band...syndrome. Take it easy. So some scratch was spent on a party. So what. So Bush was a tyrant. So what. So I am hip because I vote Green. So what. If anyone is waiting for a President to save their school or change the world, then just keep waiting. Personal action causes global change. If you are angry that millions were spent on this "Bush is gone" party, then think about how angry an out of work American who can't feed his/her family is at the amount of time, money and effort we all spend on Music Festies and feeding our head with crap. Real rightous BS being busted out on a website geared for people who have nothing better to do than track an artist or crack on one they don't like. So before we all ask.."What has Obama done?" or "What has Bush done?", we should be asking "What have I done?"

Oh and I was serious about Willie, just saw him at the Fillmore...that guy is the Ziggy.

Daveapaug...this country may have founded on religious freedom, but it was founded by some very religious people. You think it was just of bunch of non-beleavers that traveled A SEA to not be bothered about religion? Our ancestors are among some of the most religious in history. I'm not a bible beater, but I think a huge influence of what could ultimately seperate our country is a lack of religion. I'm not typically one of those old guys dissing on the youngsters....but I think there are ideals being posted that could only be attributed to immaturity....on a side note, don't stop boogyin.

Daveapaug-it's true america's forefathers did leave england to practice their freedom of religion and break away from the monarchy, but the puritans were more strict then even before. i think Obama did recognize all religions in his speech today, but whether you like it or not our country was founded on Christianity, it's all over D.C. and the country, even the dollar bill "in God we trust". 43 out of 44 presidents were sworn in on the Holy Bible, the one that didn't was Teddy Rosevelt who was sworn in on a law book. if a non Christian want's to run then he can, it's a free country, would he get elected is another story. Obama got elected dispite the Islam retoric. I hope he does what everyone says he will do, got to have HOPE. anything is better then that Asshole Bush, and i'm an independent.

PhishNpanic - All I'm saying is that there is a reason that the word "God", nor any variation of it, does not exist anywhere in the constitution. The founding fathers, Jefferson especially, were heavily influenced by the secular elite during the French Enlightenment. They didn't include the word "God" on purpose because they felt that their new government should not involve itself in religious matters. So I'm asking, why did that whole damn inauguration look like a sunday tent service, with prayer - which is a religious pastime - all over the place. Practice your religion all you want, just keep it out of my face, and out of my politics please.

Obama is a Joke. None of you seem to truly understand the politics in our nation. What is Obama changing? The head financial adviser that he appointed is the old president of the Financial Reserve (can you say no F$#%ing change there). How many of you think Obama is against war (his plan is to shift our troops to Afghanistan in an equally pointless war)? Again, what has he ever done? We needed someone like Mike Gravel, who calls out politicians all day long, Obama isn't the change we need. Too little too late, at least I hope you all feel good about voting for an African American, that's real change, you are all PC for sure. If you guys have any spare change, send it my way. 2012 see how you feel about it. Another pointless figure head.

BY THE WAY, WE DIDN'T LEAVE ENGLAND JUST TO PRACTICE FREEDOM OF RELIGION, LIKE YOU HAVE READ IN YOUR 7TH GRADE ENGLISH BOOK. WE LEFT ENGLAND PRIMARILY TO HAVE A INDEPENDENT FINANCIAL SYSTEM WHICH IT IS NOT THE CASE WITH THE FEDERAL RESERVE! What do you have to say about that Democrats and Republicans? Learn your nations true history, and jrp4202 you are such a fu$%ing fool I don't even know how to begin, but with your whole if you don't love americer you can get out bullshit, you seem to have no idea that no matter how you believe we seceded from England, it was because of vocal protest. That is why our country is founded on free speech, so suck my dick! Yeah flag me jambasers, you can't stop the truth.

Perhaps a class that touches on the likes of Alexander Hamilton (first Sec. of Treasury, began a centralized banking system with the charter of the First Bank of the United States) and perhaps a refresher on the VARIETY of reasons for the separation from the mother country and why people colonized N. America.

At least I didn't start this argument this time. I don't think I can say anything that hasn't been said on this thread. At least music fans like us are paying attention to politics whichever way they may lean.

No Andy, you are wrong, unless you are referring to how they properly wrote out the date in longhand in those times as in: "year of our lord". That doesnt mean anything. Bring something stronger next time youngin'.

I never said there was a problem with a centralized banking system, I am saying that there is a major problem with having a privatized banking system. A. Hamilton started a great thing, that was destroyed when we allowed our banking system to become privatized with the formation of the federal reserve.

As far as why people colonized North America, are we still talking about the same subject because that goes a little beyond government and Obama. I also never claimed to know everything about our country's history, but I am not clueless. Anyone else fresh out of college with a suggestion on what classes I should take?

Seems as if some of us are on pissy rants on this thread. Although I do agree with some points from all sides, I do believe that some think that they are right regardless of a rebuttle that another person says. Thats why people have been arguing on this site about our president. Porno Funk, funny statement and it is 100% true what you have said. Andy9, Chiddoger and others posting on this thread more than 5 times need to get a job. I know the economy is bad, but you can always find something.

Phish_420, actually, you can find that information in a Social Studies/History book, not English book. That is a book about grammar, not history.

MY LAST POST ON THIS TOPIC- Thanks to those who understand where I'm coming from on this, and to those who didn't agree with me, thanks for responding anyhow, and I'm glad to see people actually care about this stuff on here.

Anyone else see the irony of Daveapaug's comment. He was saying that religion and politics should not be mixed, but in the same breath introduced religion into a thread that was completely political up until this time. Also- your history is sketchy to say the least. Even if the Constitution was influenced by some humanist thinkers (Such as John Locke and Thomas Paine)the secular humanism that you are comparing it to did not become a popular epistemology until the mid-18th century- check the facts. And seperation of church and state does not limit the amount that religious beliefs can influence those within the public secter. As for the longing for completely secular/athiest government- how did that work out under Stalin, or China for the last century, or Cuba? Be careful what you wish for

Oh, and how does the use of God in the innaguaration make it comparable to the succession of persecution unto death from England? And the comment about people keeping their religion out of your face- then keep your humanist religion out of their face. Who says you get to decide how much people express their religious freedom? THe last time I checked, that was also protected under that same Constitution that you claim to be such an expert on.

Phish_420 - the reason we have a privatized banking system is because we are a capitalist nation. Nationalizing the banks is an option that could help pull us out of our current economic state but many are leary because of the repercussions of having all banks being owned and operated by the government.

Well I'm just glad that lots of people around this country are finally pulling together. Politics isn't a football game, its real life. The people on the "other side" are actually on the same side. Obama is been pres. all of a few days and people are saying stuff about Armageddon? Why can't we disagree and dissent without full on assaulting people with differing viewpoints? I've got plenty of conservative friends who are actually proud of Obama and are giving him a chance. Its time for real bipartisan action, or nothing will get done.

All the snide remarks do nothing but show your true character. So many people on here when posting about politics, news, and of course music are always looking for that super slick comeback, or someway new inventive way to make someone look bad or stupid. Believe me, I've been guilty of this as well but CHANGE starts with the people, not the president.
