*I am a master proofreader after I click Submit.
* There is actually a War on Christmas. But Christmas started it, with it's unparalleled aggression against the Thanksgiving Holiday, and now Christmas has seized much Lebensraum in November, and are pushing into October. The rest of us seek to repel these invaders, and push them back to the status quo ante bellum Black Friday border. -Trotskylvania

IIRC, the oath is supposed to be done before noon, because it has to be finished at the point at which he becomes President.


I genuinely didn't know that. I assumed it would start a minute before and end AT noon. Safety margin I suppose: violating the Constitution right at the start would be bad.

I think they're supposed to be prayers, but it's hard to tell the difference.

Oh, hey, acknowledging the difficult past of America including the building they're standing in front of was built with slave labor. Sphincters at the Maga clubhouse must have sucked all the way up their bodies.
"...I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;" who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a "more convenient season." -MLK Jr.
