In order for a candidate to become president they must have an overwhelming support of the citizens, right? They would at least need more people who want to see them in power than those who would rather they fail. I mean… isn’t that the whole reason why we’re urged to vote? Told our voices matter and all the other propaganda? The 2009 inauguration of President Barack Obama (yes, girl I said President present tense because he’s still my President FOH) had an attendance record of more than 1.8 million according to CNN politics.
So where are all the self-hating bigots who voted for Captain Cheezit? They have no problem sitting behind a camera and spewing messages of hate, or even attacking defenseless POC for no justifiable reason, but very few showed up to support the man THEY deemed fit to be in power. When listening to Trump’s inauguration speech the reason becomes a bit clearer. At least to me. His speech was littered with the uses of ‘i’ and ‘me’ as opposed to ‘us’ and ‘we’. ‘I can fix these problems’ and ‘I am the answer’.
So maybe Trump’s followers didn’t show because their lazy asses felt their task was done. They screamed hate to the heavens and their Gods have responded. So all that’s left for them to do is sit back and let havoc wreck itself. Even so, We the People should see this as an opening. Our support of love is far greater than their message of hate. The power rests in our hands and it’s up to us to use it to rectify the problems that have plagued America since it’s founding. Let’s make it right one step at a time! This is our call to action.
In the mean time in-between time, check out this article with more photos showing the recent inauguration’s lack of attendees.
Yesterday, October 20th, 2015, Uber unveiled a New York State Economic Impact Report, which projects that Uber will bring 13,000 jobs to the Empire State in the first year of operating, while providing access to reliable and affordable rides, as an alternative to taxis or other expensive transportation options.
Across the United States and in New York City, Uber offers riders the ability to find a safe, affordable way to get around their communities and drivers the opportunity to earn income on their own schedule – but right now New Yorkers outside of NYC are missing out.
For far too long, New Yorkers — especially in communities Upstate, including my hometown of Buffalo, NY — have seen jobs leave the state rather than be created right here. But New York State’s economy is finally turning around thanks to investment in innovators. Uber can help continue that revitalization by creating 13,000 jobs in New York State in the first year of operating alone!
Uber can also make New York a safer place to live by reducing drunk driving throughout the State. A recent, independent study conducted by Temple University found that cities where Uber operates have 3.6%-5.6% fewer drunk driving deaths than cities without access to ridesharing.
