    So I saw a story on this last night about Trump peddling inauguration tickets in Facebook ads. Kind of desperate isn't it?

    But wait...there's more. It's even more desperate when you consider that these tickets he is peddling aren't even needed. Thus what he is really peddling is just a commemorative thing and trying to get people to spend money. Don always on the Con, even when about to be sworn in as President.

    107 views and no comment? Really? How is that possible?

    Complacency has led us to where we are.

    But that's just it....we can not allow cons to become so normalized that we become accepting of it.

    Not accepting, just expecting it.

    That's usually the first step towards being more accepting though. When it becomes so commonplace that people just go "meh".

    Nothing shocks me anymore. I'm a liberal leaning moderate, and the fact is I could live with most Republican candidates for President, but this one is an embarrassment. We're talking Berlusconi ten fold.

    Enjoy the last few minutes. I wish the outgoing and incoming Presidents well and success.
