The Inauguration -- Wretched Excess!!!

Postby Waiting4Jesus on Thu Jan 15, 2009 8:07 am

Just saw on TV...Obama's Inauguration will cost us taxpayers $160 MILLION. It said Clinton's Inauguration back in 1993 cost $33 million.

This absolutely sickens me...this "wretched excess" while so many ordinary Americans are struggling to keep their heads above water, struggling merely to put food on the table!

HOW CAN THEY SPEND LIKE THAT??? Especially in light of the recent astronomical bailouts, unemployment, etc., etc. etc.

Once you're thoroughly convinced that the world rightly revolves around yourself, it's easy to justify any excess.

Persecution is coming. Of COURSE it is. The only question is, will we remember that it is a privilege to bear His reproach? Will we count it all joy that we are counted worthy to suffer with Him? Will we love? Or will we get belligerent and hateful toward our enemies, in defiance of our Lord's command and example?

One need only look at other socialist governments to see how the money is spent on pomp and circumstance, while the common people hurt for necessities.

And remember, since this inauguration was declared a state of emergency, Obama enters office under those terms. He is a sitting dictator, able to bypass Congress and the Justice Dept, until he declares the emergency over.

Psa 40:1-3
I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, [and] established my goings.
And he hath put a new song in my mouth, [even] praise unto our God: many shall see [it], and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.

Gosh, I must be a terrible racist to feel that this monumentous, historical event should be toned down in deference to all the people who are losing their homes, unable to purchase food or medicine, and/or being laid off or fired. If he's going to be the 'world's president' then maybe we should pass the hat. Remember all those old depression videos where you see the grimy dustbowl family and then they cut away to Washington where everyone is riding around in carriages and dressed in suits and tophats, dining together and shedding crocodile tears for the poor? That rumbling sound you hear is the divide getting bigger and the middle class falling in. There's nothing different about Obama. Our government has been taken private. The Presidency is just the "velvet glove on the iron fist" now. It doesn't matter who we put in. They all lick the fingers of their globalist masters.
