To All Offended By My Recent Post...

and no, not the one about the Sloppy Joes (I'm still waiting for responses on that one)...

I guess I came across as completely sacrilegious about the ceremonies of this great nation. Is it wrong to even write tongue-in-cheek style about these things? Well, now that I've been taken seriously despite criticizing both parties and undecideds... I'll tell everyone how I REALLY feel.

In the spirit of satire, all things are open for discussion. If you're going to poke fun at one, poke fun at them all. I tried to do that. Do I really think that they should have hotdogs at the Inauguration... what do you think? Someone said that President Bush didn't really get to have a "real" Inauguration last time because of all the hanging chad incidents... so go ahead, have a party if you want.

However, in the spirit of political cartoons, The Onion, Saturday Night Live and the First Amendment I will continue to make fun of more things in the future. In fact, tune in tomorrow or later this evening when I make fun of the points made by a professor of Biology.

And yes, my un-researched spending proposal of presidential inaugurations is laden with more holes than cheap swiss cheese.

And, I did donate to the Salvation Army Tsunami Relief project but I won't tell you of the puny amount. Cuts on the author's generosity, monkanocity, or lack thereof are always welcome - in the spirit of the First Amendment.

What I'm really trying to say is... didn't anyone else laugh at SNL's impersonations of President Bush and Senator Kerry?

It's hard work making people laugh.

    Would you believe ... Veteran of 1 Inaugural Ball, until yesterday ... Now veteran of 2 balls - 1985, 2005
    Expenses spent on the US economy
    Freedom Ball at Union Station (sponsored by several states including Alaska, AL, IL
    4 of us went
    Tickets: $150 each for total of $600
    Taxis round trip: $90
    Drinks: $100 ($7 each) Oh the headache!
    Trinkets: $60
    Total: $850

    Food: BBQ beef, pasta salad, cheeses, veggies, potatoes (help me Dan Quayle), etc What? No hot dogs?

    Music: 4 live bands including Big band, Rock, Military, and Jazz. More work for artists, thank goodness.

    Protestors: personal estimate - about 200 - out in the cold wasting their money but still contributing to the economy, bless them. They added excitement to the entrance.

    Press: estimate about 300.

    President: 1
    VEEP: 1

    We were pikers. Many of the people at the ball were from out of town, so they were renting rooms and paying airlines, AMTRAK, and ground transport industries. The ripples in the economy for something like this are staggering. Think of the gowns and tux rentals alone.

    Old Aborigine Proverb: Speak out with the skin of the crocodile. Fear not the porcupine of criticism. If you err, it is better to weasel than to waffle.

    SNL skit: very funny.

    They don't work! They'll permit you to get an sizegenetics, but that's about all, and becoming an sizegenetics has never been a problem for me, so the pump was simply a waste of money.But what about penis sizegenetics sizegenetics and lotions? Forget about them! How could any pill or lotion give you a bigger penis? Now, if for example the makers of Viagra brought out a penis sizegenetics pill, I may be tempted to give it a try, but otherwise, no thank you.According to this man's experience, and my own opinion like a researcher and reviewer in this particular field, when you want a bigger penis, you should be prepared to work for it.
