MR. PRESIDENT

How beautiful is it we are in a country where the transfer of power is directed so seamlessly?  Really.  (There are nations that aren't so good at it!)  Everybody relax.  Hope for the best.  Be your best where you are.  Friends and neighbors do not all vote alike.  That's okay.  Pretty stoked we aren't zombie-think-and-lookalikes.  Do your thing, and do it thoughtfully and with character.  Be the good.    
This weekend's video has nothing to do with Republicans and Democrats.  Just take-you-away beauty.  You're welcome:

CONSTITUTIONALLY

Why did Presidential Inaugurations move from March 4th to January 20th, you ask?  It's a lame reason.  No, really.  Lame.  In 1933 Congress passed the 20th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, nicknamed, the "Lame Duck Amendment."  It was "crafted to cut down the time 'lame duck' lawmakers," those that lost re-election, "held office following Election Day."    story           

Principle in the type:  "I am introducing a new idea.  Try to care less.  Practice ambivalence.  Learn to let go of wanting it.  Treat your career like a bad boyfriend.  Here's the thing.  Your career won't take care of you.  It won't call you back or introduce you to its parents.  Your career will openly flirt with other people while you are around.  It will forget your birthday and wreck your car.  Your career will blow you off if you call it too much. . . . Your career will never marry you."    Amy Poehler

When you are George Lucas you make a special place to hold all your fancies!  For his "$1 billion museum to house an extensive personal collection of paintings, illustrations, and movie memorabilia, Los Angeles has been chosen as the location."  Hey, I get it.  "It belongs in a museum!"  (#indiequotes)    news
