Obama’s Second Inauguration- Collossal waste of money?

ingratnI didn’t see the Second inauguration of President Obama today.  I went to see The Hobbit.  I assume it was on TV.  With so much talk and hype about it I’m willing to bet millions of dollars were spent on this occasion.

Is it really necessary to go through all that rigmarole and wasted money on someone who is ALREADY in the office?  Why do we keep wasting so much money then wondering why we can’t pay for the important things?  This world is so messed up. I hate this planet.
