Is there a real reason that she feels unsafe to go the the inauguration or is she just paranoid? Is DC becoming kinda... I dunny... Klanny or something? Or parts parts of DC? I'm drunk so I sound stupid but I'm honestly curious. Is there a legit part of DC that's becoming or has always been racist but the rest of the country isn't aware?

DC itself is incredibly segregated, with the poor working class population being driven more and more into the crime-ridden SE area. In general, though, the city is incredibly liberal. Something like 93% of us voted for Hillary.

For the inauguration, she is just worried about the pro-Trump people coming and the fact that they might not like that we are in an interracial relationship.

Supporters of a campaign built on xenophobia sound like they'd be less friendly towards foreigners than other people.

Also, listening to the press conference right now. Pence's applause breaks sound like he expecting this to be like a rally, not a press conference, and each round of hesitant applause makes me laugh harder.

Dude, you're forgetting Morbid Saint (MORBID SAINT!!!), Insect Warfare, Exhumed, Wormrot, Candlemass (CANDLEMASS!!!), and Terrorizer (TERRORIZER!!!). God damn it, looking at MDF's setlist when I probably am not going is just depressing. I'm still hating myself for missing Carcass last year.

Exhumed is pretty cool and Insect Warfare bring back some vivid flashes of being stoned in college and thinking grindcore was just the best haha. I get that Candlemass are legends, but they've never really done it for me. That style of doom doesn't really speak to me in general.

And yes, DC is quite segregated. It makes me sad and I get angry at myself for thinking bad thoughts about the 20 or so homeless people I walk by every day and ignore as they ask for money or cigarettes (seriously my brand is $8.70 a pack here - I'll visit my parents in Alexandria for home cooking a quick stop at the convenience store...). Your wife will probably be safe. The place will be police central - won't stop some yahoo from saying something offensive, but I have a feeling any ire in the audience will be directed at the people counter-protesting and anyone who looks "Muslim" rather than just foreign.

Let's be honest though, do you honestly think a Trump supporter can tell the difference between ISIS and a Filipino? Stay home.

I always forget about Insect Warfare, they kick some serious ass.

I'd go for all those mentioned as well as Oranssi Pazuzu, Conan, Acid King, Crypt****ingtopsy, and In the Woods...

I wouldn't go for Cryptopsy. Lord Wyrm is long gone and from what I've heard they've gone kinda deathcore. I don't remember if I've listened to any modern Cryptopsy but until I do I wouldn't be excited to see them live.

There are problems with America's taxes, but it's not so much in the rates themselves.
You aren't talking about the Capital Gains tax right? The one that currently exists. Are you talking about something different.

I was going to head down to it on a bus from NY with a bunch of others for this Women's March thing that's happened but I decided against it. I rather watch the shit show from afar than be a part of it no matter how historic it is going to be.
