Well? Regardless of who it is, the "changing of the guard" is historic. And as a citizen, don't I care about history in the making? On the other hand, *this guy*??? Would watching not imply some sort of endorsement of "him?"

Seriously, I am conflicted. Similarly, about performing. I mean, the honor. But the endorsement?

Can't imagine what possible difference it would make whether you watch or not. The only meaning it would have would be whatever meaning you give the action of watching. "Endorsement"? You mean, if someone peeks in the window and sees you watching the inauguration, they'll take that as an expression of support for the new unpresidented president?

If you feel like watching it, watch. You can always tell yourself you don't want to miss it if he slips on a banana peel or if someone throws a pie in the buffoon's face.

Nielsen contacted us to determine whether they wanted us as a Nielsen Family to help compile their TV ratings, but we didn't watch enough TV to qualify (they paid us 3 bucks cash, though, for answering their questions). So, nobody is recording what I watch on TV. If we were a Nielsen Family, I wouldn't watch things like the Republican Convention and the Trump Inauguration. But since we don't count, I might watch.
And spend the three bucks foolishly....

Well the inauguration of a Celtic king (or at least some of them) involved the candidate publicly fucking a mare, getting it boiled down into soup and then bathing in it. Anyone know what catering equipment has been ordered for this event?

It's rather telling that none of the Mudcatters professing support for Trump has been asked to perform - they haven't between them managed to demonstrate as much entertainment value as the voice of an I Can't Believe It's Not Butter commercial.

Nope, not gonna watch.

If there's something outstandingly bizarre or outrageous, and thus worth watching, it'll be looped endlessly for days, so there's nothing to be gained in watching it live. I've never much liked watching parades, either, unless I personally knew someone who was marching in it. The whole idea of this man as president scares me profoundly, and I don't think watching the inauguration will make this reality any easier to deal with. I feel sorry for the former first families who feel obligated to attend.

I'm wondering - can cable providers tally who is watching the coverage? Some facebook posts suggest that having a tv turned on, gets you counted, and if you have your tv tuned to something OTHER than coverage of the event, you can reduce the % of the audience (and thus piss off His Twitliness). If you don't have it turned on, you don't make it into the count. If this is true, I can run the weather channel or animal planet all day.

But my evening - going to hear Reggie Harris in a house concert. I got my reservation in for that before I found out Mark Dvorak was going to be playing in the area Friday night as well. Reggie wins, since I got to hear Mark two months ago, and Reggie more like 3-4 years.Seems there are wonderful concerts to be had all over the place on Friday night, and supporting live music is something we all ought to think about doing regularly.

The amount of electricity used is also a way of metering how many people watch. On certain occasions in Ireland the Electricity Supply Board has had to vary the supply as every household in the country goes to take a break and put on the kettle for a pot of tea when there's a particularly sensational current affairs show on TV; the usage will already be far higher than normal, then there's a surge at the ad break. So if you don't want to add to the figures, go for a walk during that couple of hours.

Ann Coulter says she's going.....didn't know who she was but stumbled on to one of her interviews with CNN.
It was the end of the night at the Democratic victory party, the interviewer ask her if she was "heading for home"....."No" says Ann, "I'm just going to sit here till morning and watch them cry"

Miss Coulter had been ridiculed and laughed at by CNN anchors after she was asked who she thought would be the Republican choice for Presidential candidate.....she responded immediately "Donald Trump!"

Now that took guts?

Yes, there is, ake. From Wikipedia:

Coulter is the author of twelve books, many of which have appeared on The New York Times Best Seller list, with a combined 3 million copies sold as of May 2009.[34]

Coulter's first book, High Crimes and Misdemeanors: The Case Against Bill Clinton, was published by Regnery Publishing in 1998 and made the New York Times Bestseller list.[1] It details Coulter's case for the impeachment of President Bill Clinton.

Her second book, Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right, published by Crown Forum in 2002, reached the number one spot on The New York Times non-fiction best seller list.[35] In Slander, Coulter argues that President George W. Bush was given unfair negative media coverage. The factual accuracy of Slander was called into question by then-comedian and author, and now Democratic U.S. Senator from Minnesota, Al Franken; he also accused her of citing passages out of context.[36] Others investigated these charges, and also raised questions about the book's accuracy and presentation of facts.[37][38][39] Coulter responded to criticisms in a column called "Answering My Critics".[40]

In her third book, Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism, also published by Crown Forum, she reexamines the 60-year history of the Cold War — including the career of Senator Joseph McCarthy, the Whittaker Chambers-Alger Hiss affair, and Ronald Reagan's challenge to Mikhail Gorbachev to "tear down this wall"—and argues that liberals were wrong in their Cold War political analyses and policy decisions, and that McCarthy was correct about Soviet agents working for the U.S. government.[41] She also argues that the correct identification of Annie Lee Moss, among others, as communists was misreported by the liberal media.[42] Treason was published in 2003, and spent 13 weeks on the Best Seller list.[43]

Crown Forum published a collection of Coulter's columns in 2004 as her fourth book, How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must): The World According to Ann Coulter.[44]

Coulter's fifth book, published by Crown Forum in 2006, is Godless: The Church of Liberalism.[45] In it, she argues, first, that American liberalism rejects the idea of God and reviles people of faith, and second, that it bears all the attributes of a religion itself.[46] Godless debuted at number one on the New York Times Best Seller list.[47] Some passages in the book match portions of others' writings published at an earlier time (including newspaper articles and a Planned Parenthood document), leading John Barrie of iThenticate to assert that Coulter had engaged in "textbook plagiarism".[48]

Coulter's If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans (Crown Forum), published in October 2007, and Guilty: Liberal "Victims" and Their Assault on America (Crown Forum), published on January 6, 2009, both also achieved best-seller status.[49][50][51]

On June 7, 2011, Crown Forum published her eighth book Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America. Coulter said she based this book heavily on the work of French social psychologist Gustave Le Bon, who wrote on mass psychology, and in it she argues that liberals have mob-like characteristics.[52]

Her ninth book, published September 25, 2012, is Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama. It argues that liberals, and Democrats in particular, have taken undue credit for racial civil rights in America.[53]

Coulter's tenth book, Never Trust a Liberal Over 3 — Especially a Republican, was released October 14, 2013. It is her second collection of columns and her first published by Regnery since her first book, High Crimes and Misdemeanors.[54]

Coulter published her eleventh book, Adios, America: The Left's Plan to Turn Our Country Into a Third World Hellhole on June 1, 2015. The book addresses illegal immigration, amnesty programs, and border security in the United States. [55]

Thank you Michael.....that's very interesting, must try and get hold of a couple of her books.....From your post there are some of her views that I agree with and some that I don't, but I woulf have to read at least one book in it's entirety before passing my personal judgement......One thing is certain, she is extremely intelligent and extremely brave, as in one of her interviews she claims to have had hundreds of death threats.

Ake, of course you like Coulter. You probably also like Sarah Palin, Donald Rumsfeld, and Dick Cheney. Enjoy the empty stands and the vacant streets around the capitol as you watch the inauguration. And stop putting liberal in quotes, as if it is an insult or a make believe thing - it's real and we're proud to be the superior, altruistic individuals that we are.

The money is on Trump bailing before long, when the work gets hard and he finally figures out he can't wave a wand and have what he wants happen. He can't stalk his political opponents, and can't command that people be imprisoned on his say so. He can't just spend money or cut programs.

Trump will have a cabinet equal to him in every way; the perfect kakistocracy. But that still won't let him be the dictator he wants to be, so he'll quit pretty soon. Or the 25th amendment will get him. Section 4.

Coulter is one of the more complete amoral, vicious predatory persons in this country. The fact that I suspect that she dons the persona at will - it has been supremely profitable for her and I understand she can be quite pleasant in private- does not take away one iota of her shame.

Getting back to the inauguration, seems to me that for the mass of people who voted for Mr Trump it wont be viable to travel to Washington. The Republican establishment hate him more than the Democrats, as do the Media "Luvvies" and I agree with Acme they will be working hard to get rid of him and return to the "no change" direction of travel.

It's certainly not helpful in the context of this discussion.


I was speaking more about her desire for change, her anti immigration stance and support for US industry.
I also agree with her that if the Democrats had the guts to back Mr Sanders rather than establishment favourite Clinton, Mr Trump would not be US president today.
Mr Sanders also spoke out against mass immigration AND globalisation.

So would you think people should be more tolerant of Ann Coulter's English clone Katie Hopkins, aken?

Of course it may be that the fact that a person who is disliked is female can lead to them they coming for extra venom because they are female, but I'd suspect that's counterbalanced by the existence of people who are likely to go more easy on them for the same reason, (That could of course arise either from a feminist standpoint, or a sexist one. These things get confusing at times.)

Both of them seem to have similar vile views.

Ignorant as usual. Feminist does not imply one supports only women, likes only women, etc. It implies an approach to life and business and politics that gives women equal pay and equal say. Ann Coulter does none of that. The fact that she can be ridiculed by throwing her own words back at her makes her an easy target, to be sure. She is of the ilk of Phyllis Schlafly, Michelle Buchanan, or Sarah Palin.

"If we took away women's right to vote, we'd never have to worry about another Democrat president. It's kind of a pipe dream, it's a personal fantasy of mine, but I don't think it's going to happen. And it is a good way of making the point that women are voting so stupidly, at least single women.
It also makes the point, it is kind of embarrassing, the Democratic Party ought to be hanging its head in shame, that it has so much difficulty getting men to vote for it. I mean, you do see it's the party of women and 'We'll pay for health care and tuition and day care—and here, what else can we give you, soccer moms?'"

I did my best to watch every moment of both Obama inaugurations - often with tears in my eyes. And I watched every Obama farewell event I could find in the last few weeks, with the same emotion. He's been a good President.
I've been spending a lot of time this week in the service waiting room of my car dealer - payback for my 15,000 mile tour of America. I switched the waiting room television off FoxNews as soon as I thought I could get away with it, and I've been watching the cabinet confirmation hearings. The discussions are interesting, and the nominees and the senators on both sides are all making very reasonable points - none seem to be the mindless evildoers that they're sometimes made out to be.
The discussion on Obamacare was particularly interesting yesterday. The Republicans seem to want a healthcare system that will fulfill all the best dreams of the Democrats. Obamacare tried too hard to satisfy the insurance companies and the Republicans. Now the Republicans are under pressure to come up with something that actually works, and perhaps now they can afford to ignore the political considerations. Maybe, just maybe, they can do their job and develop something that serves the people.
So, I'll wait and see.

There has been some controversy about the Girl Scouts participating in the inaugural parade, something they've done every inauguration for a century. The Girl Scouts generally support the more progressive causes, so there was hope they might boycott the inauguration. The Boy Scouts have been annoyingly conservative, which is one of the reasons why I left them after 30 years. But both scout organizations have participated in all inaugurations since their early years, so would it be right for them to single Trump out for boycott?

So, I dunno. Can't think I'll ever be happy having Trump as President, but I'm hoping maybe he'll surprise me.

Trump will not surprise you in that he will do things you didn't expect. It's what mavericks do.

Farcebook thinks Michael Flatley will perform at the inaugural ball

I wish to announce that this year, I am refusing to perform at the Twump Inauguration.

When we elect Michelle Obama in 2020, that will be another matter....

One good thing about living back here is that we don't have inaugurations for the Prime Minister. They just stand in the middle of the street, and give a short, generally totally insincere, speech.

Coronations are a hoot, but they don't come along too often.

"When we elect Michelle Obama in 2020, that will be another matter...."
As much as I shy away from dynasties, (remembering the Bush Family's attempts to establish one) what a beautiful thing to look forward to.
I doubt if Trump will ever surprises us other than to show further depths of his evil - if that were possible.
An openly dishonest businessman, a misogynist, a racist, sexual depravities which put Clinton/Lewisnski in the same class as 'Sound of Music', the Russian Government as backers, a record of involvement with the Russian Mafia and of having employed at least one killer in his businesses.....
What has happened to your country - pity Al Capone isn't still around!

The event's organizers and Trump seem to be working at cross purposes. They're hoping for clear skies today while he's hoping for golden showers.

I would happily vote for Michelle. I thought her speech at the Democratic National Convention was the best one that came out of the 2016 campaign.
