    “Praise song for every hand lettered signed”, was that the line? What the fuck does it mean?

    > This poem is a bit daft.

    There shall in that time be rumors of things going astray, erm, and there shall be a great confusion as to where things really are, and nobody will really know where lieth those little things with the sort of raffia-work base, that has an attachment. At that time, a friend shall lose his friend’s hammer, and the young shall not know where lieth the things possessed by their fathers that their fathers put there only just the night before, about eight O’clock.

    I love the fact that the crowd weren’t sure if she’d finished or not so there was a gap before a smattering of applause

    It was hand lettered sign. Either protest, or low budget marketing. Not entirely loving the poem myself, but I think it’s heart is in the right place even if it’s mind is a little disordered.

    Bear in mind that this is an American ceremony for the benefit of Americans who are watching the installation of their new American leader, the President of the United States of America. “Everyone else” doesn’t really enter into it; this is all the same stuff (or at least the same sort of stuff) that was said before these events were telecast worldwide.

    Yeah I just re watched it. Obama got a bit stuck and the Chief Justice repeated himself but messed it up.

    Wow. I’ve just been away a couple of hours and this thread has groooooooooown.

    I haven’t been watching it…* but I did overhear the tune to our national anthem on my Dad’s telly a little while ago. Sung to new lyrics in a gospelly way!

    *Political stuff isn’t really my cup of tea, although I’m glad Obama got in. I accept it’s a big deal for America and I wish the guy well.

    My Country, ‘Tis of Thee” …is an American patriotic song, whose lyrics were written by Samuel Francis Smith in 1831. The melody was derived from the British national anthem, ‘God Save the Queen‘, by way of a German adaptation.”

    “…The arrangement of God Save The Queen was officially changed in 2002 when Brian May performed a version which was nationally voted to be superior to the traditional arrangement…”

    I find it both amusing and disturbing how clear he made it that he’s still gonna rip the living shit out of anyone who fucks with America. Not that the warmongering was ever going to abate (especially at this stage in the game) but…I don’t know, I just didn’t like hearing that.

    kakchriskak did murder my parents, but I’m cool with it. I dunno about everyone else.

    As for ripping the shit out of America’s enemies, you can’t get away with not saying that any more than you can get away with leaving god out of civil government ceremonies. See what I did there?

    Anyway, he stopped short of implying it was a crusade, so it’s already a 2000% improvement.

    It just seems like everyones suddenly got it in for the guy, and a little unfairly. I wondered if something had gone down on another thread and I was thinking badly of some people for no reason

    i think some people took the comment ” i wonder how long these people can go on for without mentioning god ” as “i wonder how long black people can go on for without mentioning god” .which was not intended

    apart from that i dont think iv done anything bad .. apart from the murdering parents thing

    I’ve been here pretty much the whole time and I don’t think anything happened. I think it’s just that the locals are prone to unannounced fits of fake cruelty. It’s just how they roll.

    If thats the case, thats cool. But seeing as kakchriskak is new (at least to posting) telling him hes not funny and mocking grammar and punctuation is a little unwelcoming. Im probably overreacting anyway and none of this matters to anybody, but for someone whos contributed a lot and tried to start some dwarf based discussion on the foums it just seemed a little harsh.

    well thank you al for seing it from my point of view much appreciated as u say not that it really matters that much anyway … oh and (Y) is a msn shortcut for thumbs up . must have got my msn and g&t mixed up ……and if you want i can send you the money to get your dog back ??

    Aha. It’s perfectly acceptable text, for some reason I thought it was something slightly rude. Says so much about my mind, really. As for the dog, you’re forgiven. ;)

    >He?s the 44th President, so surely that?s only 43 handing over of powers?

    Before the US had its first election, there was an appointed head of state to run things. That was the first transition, given to the first president.

    From the BBC Site: ‘The new president read the note left to him by his predecessor George W Bush in an envelope marked “To: #44, From: #43”.’

    I’m going to miss this era of jokes pretty much writing themselves.

    It’s weird, from the off we had a legacy of idiocy with Bush Sr, in order to compare. With Obama, there is nothing. It’s like trying to pinch marble.
