For many of us in America, Trump’s inauguration could only have been eclipsed by another grand event… Obama’s departure. And rightly so, we’ve been waiting for 8 years for Obama to leave; we’ve only been waiting a few months for Trump to be elected. And today was finally it, an end to Obama regime! Yippee, this uncloseted leftist is finally gone! In the immortal words of Dr. Martin Luther King, “Free at last, free at last, thank God almighty we are free at last!”
Trump seemed to be thoroughly enjoying himself today an so did his hundreds of thousands of supporters! Of course the democrats tried to spoil it, but they failed miserably. 60 plus Congress people boycotted this event because they couldn’t accept the election results! What a joke. They wanted a do-over…these pea brained cry-babies. They looked so foolish too, because they have openly disrespected the system that has served us well for over 241 years with a smooth transition of power. That’s pretty remarkable. 8 years ago, I didn’t like the fact that Obama was elected, but the idea of boycotting his inauguration never crossed my mind, nor any GOP representatives that I ever heard of! Well, this stunt made the democrats look immature and petty. Fortunately, Trump could have cared less if they were there or not.
The usual 1% of alt lefties hurled bricks at cops and broke windows, as if this has ever worked to win over the hearts and minds of voters? This happened in a number of places, , from D.C. to Portland. But, as usual it only served to make the fringe left look pathetic and irrelevant. Other than that, I thought Trump’s big day went over quite nicely.
I’m told his speech was one of the shortest in the last 4 decades, but in his 16 minutes at the podium, he managed to serve fair notice that Congress better get off their duffs and do some work. Trump sounded exactly like what he is, a true third party candidate who ran under the republican banner. He wants to hold both party’s accountable now and he is expecting to get results or the slackers are going to be in his cross-hairs!
Trump made a point of reminding the people, Congress is owned by us, we all have a duty to make them responsible! Trump wants us to join him in making better schools, more efficient use of our tax dollars, rebuild a stronger military, finally get a secure border and a balanced budget. He is demanding better security at home and he wants to put America first in all concerns, be it trade, jobs, business or diplomacy. Who could not want that? Okay, the alt left, but other than that, who wouldn’t want that?

In closing, let me just say, I’m going to be thrilled if President Trump can accomplish a fraction of what he wants to do over the next 4 years. It will take a master negotiator and a strong leader to pull it off, because nobody in Congress really wants to cut anything! You name the target for reform and it’s always somebody’s sacred cow. Besides that I have serious reservations that they are competent enough to do it, even if they wanted too. Worse yet, you must remember this bunch of cheats and liars are addicted to “bribe money” aka campaign contributions, and that keeps them busy passing worthless legislation (aka crap) while the nation’s pleads for serious reform! It’s been like that for as long as I can remember. What have they ever done right for things like healthcare, national security, tax reform, crime, etc.? In general terms, what have they done to reform this growing, bloated bureaucracy that we’ve all come to know and loath? Obviously, I don’t like them and I don’t trust them to do anything that Trump has on his agenda. But, for the sake of this country I hope Trump brings us wins, we sure need it.
