It sounds like you did NOT attend or left out the rest...

* left over trash from the estimated 1.5 million in attendance
* the majority of those in attendance used profanity, vulgarities, and were utterly disrespectful of others
* over commercializiation of the inauguration - vendors forgot the historic and meaning of the inauguration and ONLY seemed interested in making a buck $$$
* I can go on and on and on... BECAUSE, I was there!!
