Inauguration Inflation

Fox news notes that the tradition of the Presidential Inaugural Ball began with the inauguration of James Madison in 1809. The tickets for the Ball were $4. Today, they go into the hundreds of dollars. And remind me again why we elected Obama to the presidency? The cost of things isn't going up; the value of the dollar is going down. And Obama won't be doing what's necessary to fix this.

I want to believe you are praying for those in authority over you. By the way, it is no longer 1820. America is truly a melting pot. I am black, an immigrant ( I have earned a doctoral degree in the USA and Jesus'gracious love is the only good in me). This pure race & religion you are preaching is sad. Ask the savior to open your eyes--- to love ALL PEOPLE. Thanks. By the way I have the same taste in books and music as you do.

You've given a perfect example of one of the reasons we continue to fail to resolve problems in the political realm in this country. Your response had absolutely nothing to do with what I wrote. You assume I am a racist, when I didn't even address race. Scripture clearly condemns racism as sin. But I shouldn't have to even explain that - nothing I said even gives the idea I am racist. It is unfair of you to assume that of me, and to further accuse me of that, when it is false. The problem with President Obama isn't that he isn't white - the problem is that he's a Socialist.

Praise God that America is a melting pot - so is the Church. I don't believe in favoring ANY RACE, whether they be black, white, or otherwise. But then again, I said nothing to suggest that, so I shouldn't even have to explain that to you. If you want to address what I actually wrote, I'm all ears.
