The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

One of my classes in school has been tearing Obamas inauguration "address" apart since the 21st. Once line in the third paragraph states that "Our economy is badly weakened, a consequence of greed and irresponsibility on the part of some". I believe that many americans related this to the republican party and the last 8 years that we have seen here in america. I find it funny that now Tom Daschle has withdrawn his name because of the attention that has been brought upon him because of his "innocent" mistake of not paying over $100,000 in taxes (the number is more near 136,000 but im not exactly sure). Daschle made this announcement less then 3 hours after Chief Performance nominee Nancy Killefer withdrew her name because of her "honest" mistake in not paying her employment taxes of $946.69. Of course this is a small amount compared to Daschle but it just goes to show that there is alot more wrong that just the republican party and the people in power for the last 8 years. If that is not interesting enough then you should read this article http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/02/02/navarrette.stimulus/index.ht... pay specific attention to about halfway down the article, you will know what I am talking about....... But like I said I am not trying to start an arguement, I just really had to get this off my mind and couldnt think of anywhere else to post it except right here for all to see.

I agree, I asked my 15 year old daughter if the inauguration was watched and discussed at school.....NOPE! That is totally B-O-G-U-S! Something's wrong with this picture:(

I contribute that comment to a lot of the greed within the banking industry for many subprime loans and american corporations that have outsourced labor to Mexico and overseas to save money and profit more. It's funny when all of the automotive need a bailout because the people don't have the money to buy cars. It's hard to stimulate the economy when you don't have a job.

It's great that your teacher has got you thinking about this though. My friend was in a current US History class at our university the day of the inauguration address at the same time it was on. He said his teacher mentioned that it was happening and then began teaching other topics. I would think in a class like that, or any education class for that matter, the teacher would have their class watch the inauguration and whitness the history of the event.
I have kept out of many discussions here and at other places on the web only because I didn't want to get flamed for what I wanted to say. I also hate that. Hate is a strong word, but sometimes it can get frustrating.

I hope everyone saw that. This is a place where you can share opinions and not get flamed at. If anyone sees flaming, please let me know.
