You're going to take the position that this isn't an official government function? Are you sure about that?

I never knew this until this morning when I opened the newspaper, and there was an article that says "so help me God" is not part of the official oath of office. Each President has the option of whether to add it. The first President to do so was Chester Arthur, in 1881. So I guess the first Presidents were adhering to "separation of church and state".

The inauguration is a PUBLIC ACT. He MUST be sworn into office to be POTUS. CHARGING MONEY by an elected political official for the U.S. CITIZENS to witness an official public act IS IMPEACHABLE.
IMPEACH THIS BUM !
NEXT !
(If the mayor of the city I live in charged the citizens to witness his public swearing in, do you think THAT is legal ?!)
The ceremony Monday is for PR. The actual ceremony takes place over the weekend at the White House. Pay attention to the news.

You are wrong on all counts. The President will be sworn in TODAY, JANUARY 20 at NOON in a private ceremony....because that is the rules of the game...The public ceremony will be on Monday. You really need to go back and take 7th grade CIVICS before you come in here and talk about government.
