I thought I would post a clip from today's inauguration parade.

So what is my overall opinion? The smooth transition of power is one of the things that makes our country great. I'm sure there were many people 8 years ago who thought for sure that America would be going to hell. I still believe in the words of The Who who said it in "Won't Get Fooled Again," "Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss." I think the greatest threat facing our democracy is the rise of the corporate state. There have already been many sci-fi movies out there that depict America as a dystopian wasteland caused by corporate greed. I think we're already down that road. The trick will be to not try to get into the 1%, but rather be at the high end of the 99%. Woe be to those at the bottom of the ladder.
