Obama is Bummed That Technology Exposes Us to "All Kinds of Arguments"

Mr President, isn't that what America is all about? A free and open exchange of Ideas? Instead The President thinks that "information becomes a distraction" So basically he's bummed that free speech exists.

With all this "information" distracting the American people from it's purpose (serving the State). I propose we shut down all this evil technology and create a new government agency. We can call it the "Ministry of Information". That way our all knowing leader will decide what information is distracting and thus detrimental to the State. And all information that is deemed by the Ministry of Information to be distracting will be destroyed and or shut down, and those who dare disseminate such blasphemy will be fined and or jailed.

"Ignorance is Strength"


  1. Good to know that you once again reinforce the concept that the right wing of political ideology despises intelligence

    From that linked article
    "Obama, who often chides journalists and cable news outlets for obsessing with political horse race coverage rather than serious issues, told a class of graduating university students that education was the key to progress"

    "You're coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don't always rank all that high on the truth meter," Obama said at Hampton University, Virginia"

    "He bemoaned the fact that "some of the craziest claims can quickly claim traction," in the clamor of certain blogs and talk radio outlets."

    I guess he is talking about you... Crazy is as crazy does...

    And finally

    ""What Jefferson recognized... that in the long run, their improbable experiment -- called America -- wouldn't work if its citizens were uninformed, if its citizens were apathetic, if its citizens checked out, and left democracy to those who didn't have the best interests of all the people at heart.

    "It could only work if each of us stayed informed and engaged, if we held our government accountable, if we fulfilled the obligations of citizenship."

    too bad you and the folks you are tied to ideology wise don't get it or fail to understand, but you keep on trying to use 'ridicule' as your weapon and see where that get's ya

  2. Hey Anonymous, we just spent eight years listening to the left using ridicule as a weapon. I remember hearing that dissent was the highest form of patriotism.

    We're informed. We know our history. We've reading the founding documents, and the history behind them. We just don't come to the conclusion you think we should. We don't despise intelligence. We despise the grasping of power, the lies, and the subversion that is so much a part of national politics.

    And what sort of obscure threat is that last paragraph supposed to represent? Are you suggesting that if we don't fall in line, someone is going to use force? I'd have taken you more seriously if you hadn't posted anonymously.

  3. Stupid is as stupid does, so far the right wing has shown us how stupid they are...

    Dissent is fine but what you all are doing is showing lack of intelligence, if you're fine with that then so be it

    When it comes to solving problems of here in the present you have all decided not to participate, you'd rather rant and rave against the current president rather than work towards solutions

    Your reply proves this out, I'd have taken you more seriously is you had presented real options to what I stated rather than the rhetoric given to you by Fox and Tea party leadership...

    Like I said, you will reap what you sow, it's not that hard to figure out

  4. Yeah!
    You right wingers still want someone at the White House who follows such an old and outdated document like the constitution. You have get with the times like us progressives and follow, like sheep if you will, the words of a president who is cool because he is black and eccentric and has a really nice logo done by a really cool artist who despises capitalism but yet sells his prints at a price that only those of us upper middle class white folks who despise wal-mart for all their cheap goods while parroting a hate for corporations for not being "fair" to poor people can afford.

    And yes, we also love "Forest Gump".

  5. "With iPods and iPads and Xboxes and PlayStations, -- none of which I know how to work -- information becomes a distraction, a diversion"

    So let me get this straight....having a choice on how you get your information delivered & where it comes from is a bad thing?

  6. Wow, have to love how this presidents election by the majority in this country has caused all you right wingers to go into crazy mode

    Talk about sore losers, please do not stop with your 'angst' and 'protests' it's comedic gold!


Be Nice!
