Star DJ ZTrip to Appear at Inaugural Event?

President-elect Barack Obama has promised to bring change to Washington, and he might already be making good on the promise, at least on the party circuit. A Washington Post spy was at the ZTrip concert at the Rock and Roll Hotel on Friday night, when the star DJ and Obama supporter announced that he might be back to play at an inaugural ball.

Our spy gave us the following report:

"Toward the end of the set, he was talking about how he had been doing a lot of fundraising for Obama, and that on Election Day, had played an official Obama party in L.A. with Sheppard Fairey doing live art (the guy who did the big stylized portrait/poster of Obama).

"Trip said something to the effect of the deal isn't finalized, but it's looking good that he'd be out here again for the inauguration.

"If it's true, and he's playing an official ball, it would be something. He's a pretty major DJ, and would definitely be more inline with the hip-hop president than the usual bands they pull in off the state fair circuit for these things."

Tab for Bush bash hits record $40 million
Corporate donors step in to foot some of the bills


Mr.President elect: It is my duty as a person who gave you unwavering support by dint of hard and compelling

work during very difficult times in a very difficult state along with the emails sent to the "emails clearing

house" I now give you a word of caution because you are a man who listens to what is said to you and act on

the wisdom of God yourself and others whom you confide in.

Mr.President Elect,it is not wise to hold an Inaugural Ball in the manner of your predecessor,the current

President of the United States,Mr.George W.Bush ( a man whom I have the greatest of respect for as a

person) and whom I do honestly believe has the greatest respect for you and your family because he is such a

man by his very nature and upbringing.

You have a war of three fronts and America faces severe economic problems as the people whom you are

going serve and serve them well I do believe faces many,many,problems hence it is not within your principles

and nature to have a " grand Inaugural Ball " while your soldiers ( as Commander In Chief) are at war facing a

dangerous and determined and ruthless enemy who seek to do us harm.

It is my humble suggestion,Mr.President Elect,that you hold a simple ceremony and invite as many of the

injured troops and their families as you can and as many of the families of the troops who have made the

Ultimate Sacrifice for America and set aside the usual ceremony as you remember the words of a great and

loyal soldier of ancient times and I quote his very words from the Bible " Second Book of Samuel Verse (11):

" 11 Uriah said to David, "The ark and Israel and Judah are staying in tents, and my master Joab and my lord's men are camped in the open fields. How could I go to my house to eat and drink and lie with my wife? As surely as you live, I will not do such a thing!" " Unquote

So Mr.President,The Commander in Chief and the Cabinet and family should not be seen as ," celebrating in the

White House " while your Troopers are placing their lives on the line for America!

Let the Celebrating be for their families and the children shall eat and drink as their parents hence your

Inauguration MR.President shall be devoid of alcohol etc because you are a President of the people for the

people place in office by the people and we do believe you shall never flinch from doing and saying the right


God bless you and the Congress and Our Troops and God bless America.

One more thing I may suggest is this:

Mr.president Obama think what it will mean

to the soldiers and their families if you

and your administration and your family and

the VIce president families all eat the

same meals in the same untensils which the

troops are eating on 01/20/2008 in Iraq and

Afghanistan....no President has ever done

that since maybe since Washington ???? I

do not know for sure but you are not like

any other President Sir,You are Barrack

Obama Main Street's President...now show us

you are on 01/20/2008.
