I was just surfing and happenned to land on Peter Jennings' biased ABC segment on the inauguration and how it was funded by private dollars. They showed some hack who was saying how inappropriate corporate funding of the event was, and basically saying the sponsors, who had been criticized for being stingy with their employees, were buying influence. They showed some lady saying how many armored hummers and bulletproof vests $40 mil could have bought.
1. Everytime Bush does anything on the taxpayers' nickel they shout and wail about how he shouldn't be paying for this or that with taxpayer dollars.
2. I don't remember an eyebrow being lifted at any ceremony honoring X42, regardless of who paid.
any time you see one of these it is nice and simple to ask them for a copy of their reports criticizing Clintoon for the same thing
Ann Coulter's latest column (posted somewhere here about an hour ago) is the perfect cure for this nonsense.
Here's the link to Ann's column
Had you surfed around a bit more. it would have become instantly clear that it is the dim talking point of the day. I ran into it everywhere there was a democrat talking head, including the insufferable Campbell Brown.
there's something to be said about people that know how to spend other people's money
I say we take all professional football off TV.
All the stuff they advertize costs a lot of money because they have to pay the networks.
A lot of women get abused when their husbands' teams lose.
This costs hospitals money.
Also, I am sick of scheduling family meals around football.
Private donations are a legal funding for the inaugural.
It is proper that it be that way.
Private donations over $2000 are illegal for campaigning for office, something which ABC, CBS, and the Democrats are partners in crime in.
Ask democrats HOW MUCH Bill Clinton spent on his inaugural, and how long it lasted. And who paid for it.
According to Coulter, it lasted a week.
