Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.

Post subject: POLL - Is Obama's $150M Coronation Excessive?

In a time of global recession and job loss Obama is planning a $150,000,000 party, including more than 40,000 security personnell. Does anybody other than me think that's ridiculous?
I remember the press making a big deal of Bush's $40M inauguration.
The same ones now dismiss this event as historic. Let's see what qualifies as historic: A 1/2-black man raised by White folks got elected president, running against an old White guy RINO whom most people did not like. That's historic alright, but not for what it is being pitched as.
What do you think?

I think the given answers are quite tendentious and biased
> including more than 40,000 security personnell.
The millions visitors have had come anyway, so it's better to be prepared.
I am not surprised about the costs for the party, but about the costs during your election campaigns and I really don't want to know how much money was spent.
