I watched the inauguration yesterday. Not something I’d normally bother with, but somehow it seemed important not to miss this one. The first thing that hit me was how much religious guff there is around the whole thing. No surprise, America’s founded on religion, but it grates to see the nation that sent a man to the moon pray to magical space fairies for strength and wisdom. Although, I guess if you’re gonna pray, the start of the Trump presidency is as good a time as any…
The second thing that hit me was how empty the bleachers and viewing areas were. Lol. Etc.
For some reason I’m beginning to feel that the US will be ok. There are a lot of very bright people there, and I have hope that they’ll become motivated once this clown gets going. In the long run, it could actually improve their democracy. A strong and motivated left could do a lot to safe guard the country from complete muppets taking it over in the future. The real question now is, how long will it take to remove Trump and his fascist regime, and how many people will suffer - or worse, die - while the white supremacist 1% are fucking everything up?
