This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

cruddy-looking people of the wold...
Tickets in Hand Were No Assurance of Access (washingtonpost.com)

"It's time to put a stop to all this nonsense, protesting and causing confusion."


"They need a new law for these protesters: 'You cross the line, you do the time.' "

- Kenneth E. Boring, 80, member of the Republican Eagles, a GOP fundraising group.

"Yes, there were some waits -- and in our section there were two cruddy-looking people," he said, "You would've just thought they were trash that had blown in is all, but I thought it was great."

- John Jernigan, Inauguration spectator.

One of the most glamorous points of departure for yesterday's exodus was Manassas Regional Airport, where at noon private jets were rolling up to the glass terminal like so many taxicabs. At least three congressmen breezed in, hitching rides with moneyed friends. The Rev. Jerry Falwell came through with an entourage and took off for Lynchburg, Va.


Robin Greco said that when she and her husband hit a long line at a security checkpoint for the parade, their solution was simple: They just went to SunTrust Bank on Pennsylvania Avenue, where they enjoyed tenderloin, drinks and a prime, heated view. Her bank in Savannah, Ga., provided them with tickets to the exclusive party.


The way I see you have two options in dealing with the "rabble". You can either recognize that this "problem" will only grow worse as people become more frustrated from not having a voice and realize that you can only push people so far, or you can try to ignore us by isolating yourself in your corporate cocoons and glitzy balls and hope that we'll never organize into a revolutionary force.

While I'm not suggesting that we are on the verge of a revolution here in the States, I would say that if people ever feel like their ability to influence their lives at the polls has been taken away from them we will see people resort to other methods of expressing their "opinion". Its for this reason that Republicans and Democrats ignore the legitimate questions being raised about the election process at their own peril.

The elites have historically underestimated the power of the masses and have paid for it.
