I voted for President Barack Obama twice. I saw nothing wasteful about his first inauguration. Quite frankly, I truly believe all minorities and citizens who voted for him deserved the pomp and ceremony that was the first inauguration. The United States’ people, as a whole, should have come together at that moment in our history.
However, this second inauguration and the degree of monetary wastefulness has gone way too far, considering the dire economic situation status of our country.
