Obama. All Day, All the Time

Yawn.

Well, tomorrow is the Immaculate Inauguration, replete with schoolkids being forced to watch the process, as if we have a Stalinist, state controlled school system, where politics of a certain persuasion are forced upon children.

That's called "indoctrination", correct?

Taking a cue from DJ's open thread post, I was wondering what all you fine readers will be doing tomorrow. It is a rarity that I find myself not looking forward to a day off, but, alas, I have off tomorrow. So, instead of watching the media have a group "Obamagasm", I've decided to watch all 7 episodes of "John Adams", to remind me of how this country was founded, and display just what true patriotism means.

This media saturation of "all Obama, all the time" I believe will eventually lead to Obama fatigue, sooner rather than later.

So, what do you good people intend to do tomorrow, that is, if you have the misfortune off having off for the day?

My day will be spent watching the Back to the Future trilogy, and a dvd marathon of old Star Trek episodes. The Tribbles never looked so good.

al:

I'll be at work. Way to busy to even care about the inauguration (and I'd be the same way had McCain won). My daughter has semester finals at school so it won't be on there. :)

OTOH the wife is recording it as she wants to watch. She always watches the inauguration.

As for Obama fatigue - that settled in a few weeks ago. We were at lunch Saturday and they had CNN on one screen and MSNBC on the other and both were covering the train ride the Obama's were taking. Everyone I could hear wanted something else on.

Eh -

No intent to watch - I've seen enough of the One's visage on plaques, coffee mugs and tee-shirts. I wondered though - does the One get 10% juice money off all his promo material? Was it all made in China?

I probably *should* watch, though - just to see if his eyes dart around will promising to "uphold and defend the Constitution..."

I still remember watching the Apollo missions on tv in school. DeGualle's funeral, Nasser's funeral, too. Reds versus Orioles (Augusta, Georgia was a baseball/softball freaktown at the time). A child should always be encouraged to connect himself with historic events. The younger the better. Reference points are key to learning. Example: since I saw the game, I can state categorically that at least one world series game between the Reds and Orioles was a day game. Because I saw it. Meanwhile, Shawn would have the tykes stay uninformed until some passing bullshit artist fills them in, or more likely, up.

Diane C. Russell:

I have run away, abandoning for several days my home within site of the growing police state known as the District of Columbia. Escaping from the virtual martial law with over 5,000 Orwellian Big Brother cameras and tyrannical extra-legal regulations imposed without any real Constitutional or statutory authority by government officials who seem to be accountable to nobody. The adoring masses plus the omnipresent security forces will make DC look like 1930s Berlin.

Marc:

Shawn - "And to compare the historical importance to all of humanity of the Apollo moon landings to "this" is bizarre."

That pretty much sums it up.

To compare moon landings that occurred 11 times and may never happen again in no way compares to an event that has been occurring since April 30, 1789.

RB:

Yes...first black president. It is indeed a good thing. However, that doesn't change the man's politics, which I oppose. It doesn't do anything (at least in the short term) to alleviate the dysfunction in too many black communities.

I will celebrate the peaceful transition of power--one of the true highlights of our Constitutional system. But tomorrow is a work day for me. And despite the fact that my employer is setting up a TV in a conference room and buying us lunch (not done for either of W's inaugurals), my focus will be on doing my job. I'll catch O's speech and the analysis on the www tomorrow night.

I am going to serve Jury Duty tomorrow!

Let me see....our potential jury folk are called on Monday.....HOWEVER, since MLK's day is now a holiday we get to go to the courthouse on Tuesday; "President's Day" which is no longer a holiday.

I guess I was not part of the beatification of MLK instead of our Presidents Lincoln and Washington.

We are currently a S-I-C-K country!

There are parents and then there a parents who keep no books in the house and spend all day watching 1-star movies.
The direct medium of live tv trumps any post-game analysis by teacher or bloviator. After age 4 kids become well acquainted with objective reality and can parse bullshit famously. Unless they're being fed second-hand information, which live tv is not.
I'm for every child witnessing the swearing into office of the 44th president of the United States. Call me old fashioned.

First the neophyte Obama wins the election and then the Cardinals (the CARDINALS, people) are going to the Super Bowl. Surely these are signs of the Apocalypse as foretold in Revelations.

I'll be doing stay-at-home Dad stuff. As usual. Playing with and educating the kids, training the puppies, cleaning something, cooking. Probably not watching TV, but I really don't think it's entertaining to watch any inauguration, let alone one for someone I didn't vote for. That's just me, though.

Well....cautiously I MUST go through a big Obama supporting neighborhood with a McCain sticker still on my car. I'll keep the windows up doors locked, and look straight ahead. In this day of joyful celebration, some participants may react negatively to anyone who didn't/doesn't worship the "ONE".

Hopefully if/when I get home, it'll be a Sopranos DVD Marathon until Wednesday night.

Larry,

Considering the aptly named moniker you use, I don't think you should be riffing on anyone elses.

Try to stay on topic, Mr. Dickman.

If you think letting some black kids watch the first black president get sworn in is indoctrination to "politics of a certain persuasion," then you're a small man.

BTW, get those commas inside the quotation marks. That is if they let you follow the Chicago Manual of Style.

However, even if I was home I would not watch any TV other than HGTV. First of all maybe I could stand watching Obama (not really) but certainly NOT all the hollywood/entertainment characters and msm wetting their pants over Obama. Liking a person is one thing, worshipping and expecting mircles is something all together different and sick. But here's hoping God (the real one) blesses us all!

Wow. In addition to the stay-at-home Dad stuff I mentioned at #28, I just went through a ridiculous workout, and it destroyed me. It's two parts, 5 circuits through each part as fast as possible:

Part I:
10 Burpees
20 Lunges
30 Bodyweight Squats

30-60 seconds of rest between circuits

Part II:
10 Pull-ups
20 Power Over Pushups
10 High Pulls

No designated rest periods; rest on an as needed basis, going through each exercise and circuit as fast a s possible

I was able to perform Part I just fine. Part II was another story. I got 10 Pull-ups twice, but after that I had to reduce it gradually until the 5th circuit, where I only did 5. And, I was only able to perform 10 Power Over Pushups.

It doesn't seem like much, but it's pretty tough.
