Well... they probably won't be buying any booze with that money. Jersey barriers and police overtime pay is more like it.

Still! I agree. The only opposing case I can think of is that the inauguration probably brings some business to DC, and therefore tax revenue... but c'mon, this ain't the Olympics.

true, the tourism revenue we could potentially make would be good. but not if the hotel workers strike!

I'd totally join you on your roof but I don't have a residency permit for your HIGH SECURITY zone. Neither do the homeless guys, so I guess they'll be cleared out for a few days.

maybe i can form a cabal with the homeless dudes to take over the convention center.

I'll happily join in spitballing and homeless guy cabal forming. Black-Cat Bill should definitely lead that charge.

Wait. I just let this all sink in. Now this is my outrage of the day. We're supposed to spend our homeland security funds on the president's party? I have a better idea, if this isn't a federal event worthy of being footed by federal funds, then HOLD IT IN CRAWFORD. He likes it better there anyway.

I'm going to write to my congressperson! Oh wait...
