    I too didn't watch his speech, and only much later saw some clips. Then I read the transcript of his speech and my blood pressure went up. I was afraid to say anything because my worst emotions were in control of me. So I posted it without comment. I still can't find the words to describe what I feel about the whole process. I'm trying to put it into a much bigger picture. I'll write more when, as Obama says, "I'm cool."

    Schmidt, I sincerely compliment you; you've got the absolute right attitude. Too bad that you don't live close to me otherwise we could enjoy the sunset together with some nice whatever you drink. Luckily we are not the only ones who think this way. I hate to see this country go to hell even if I'm not an real patriot.

    Thread title is Inauguration day. My post is about day after. I just read on social media a report about women protesting on 7 continents. It made me feel good that like minds are in accord. While I daydream about his demise... I chose to remain very hopeful that better days are ahead. Hopefully shortly ahead.

    Great pictures Tony! One question: Where are the 12 women he groped? When do the lawsuits start???

    On face book they showed an clip of when Obama arrived and when Trump arrived side by side. It showed that Obama had manners; he got out of the limousine and waited for Michelle to come out and guide her up the stairs and kissed her hand once arrived at the ceremonial spot, Trump just jumped out of the limousine, did not wait on Melania and was only busy with his own"ego" getting up the stairs. This clip really did show the guy has absolutely no "manners" or an decent "character" whatsoever. I bet that he neither knows on how to behave in certain cultures around the world; probably never ate with a fork and an knife either.

    Yes I saw the photos of Trump leaving the limousine. It is not surprising. Regarding the women who made accusations of sexual harassment against Trump, don't you know the power of money? They most likely have been paid off and have signed, non-disclosure agreements. Non-disclosure agreements are so much a part of Trump's everyday life, he probably has a stash of ready forms that just need the names filled in. Anyone who has ever worked for him either in business or on his political staff have signed these agreements with a threat of lawsuits, or in the case of the women the return of monies paid for their silence.

    Even if they have refused to sign agreements or take hush money payments, the cost of defending oneself in a lawsuit can be horrendous. Trump will outlast them.

    On inauguration day, as Donald Trump was giving his speech, another world figure was also giving an interview to the Spanish newspaper, El Pais. Here are a few extracts compliments of Al Jazeera:

    Pope Francis:

    "Of course, crises provoke fears and worries," he said, but added that for him "the example of populism in the European sense of the word is Germany in 1933".

    The pope added: "Germany ... was looking for a leader, someone who would give her back her identity and there was a little man named Adolf Hitler who said 'I can do it'."

    "Hitler did not steal power," the pope said. "He was elected by his people and then he destroyed his people."

    The Germans at that time also wanted to protect themselves with "walls and barbed wire so that others cannot take away their identity", he said.

    "The case of Germany is classic," he said, adding that Hitler gave them a "deformed identity and we know what it produced".

    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    It would seem that even the Pope has concerns about the possible renewal of fascism in our established democracies.

    I seldom agree with any Pope, but this time he's right on. I lost my parents due to "fascism/nazi-ism", which sticks up its ugly head right now, that is why I'm so upset that people in this country do not realize who they put in the White House.

    It is therefore kind of strange that an Pope sees this, but the stupid Americans don't see this. Unbelievable!! Heil Bannon!
