Obama, the Village Idiot + America’s Liar

BlackBerry-loving President Barack Obama declared war on technology, singling out Apple’s super-popular iPods and iPads for criticism at a commencement ceremony in Virginia, the New York Post reported Monday.

Obama — whose election was credited in part to his skillful use of modern media, from smartphones to Twitter to Flickr — on Sunday told college graduates that high-tech gizmos and apps were straining American democracy.

“With iPods and iPads and Xboxes and PlayStations — none of which I know how to work — information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation,” Obama said at Hampton University in southeastern Virginia.

Obama described the most popular offerings of companies like Apple, Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo as distractions that are putting unnecessary pressure on the country.

Obama also lamented the spread of social media and blogs, through which “some of the craziest claims can quickly claim traction.”

“All of this is not only putting new pressures on you,” Obama said. “It is putting new pressures on our country and on our democracy.”

“We can’t stop these changes,” he said, “but we can adapt to them. And education is what can allow us to do so. It can fortify you, as it did earlier generations, to meet the tests of your own time.”

    He’s afraid of them because he can’t control free speech.

    Don’t be surprised to see the feds continue their attempts to control the web as they control most of the mainstream media. They will do this citing the need of monitoring for terrorist activity as the reason but they absolutely hate the fact you have the ability to instantly connect to others by cellphone & the internet. If they were representing those who put them in power they would’nt fear the citizens of our country.

  3. YouTube and Google are making web changes for the upcoming internet 2, which the govt. will control

    The only reason he uses a “Blackberry” is because it’s black… Is that racist?

    More lie from Illegal Alien #1

    Friends of Jerusalem woke to a United States State Department announcement that Israel had agreed to a two year moratorium on construction in Jerusalem — including the Jewish neighborhood that has been at the center of the most recent controversy.

    “Could this be true?”, One Jerusalem asked our friends in Israel.

    The answer, from several sources, including the Prime Minister, is “NO.”

    Israel has not agreed to suspend construction in Jerusalem.

    Our investigation uncovered the real story. During the normal course of governmental approvals and the letting of contracts, it will take two years for the housing project to begin construction. The Obama administration decided to distort this fact by declaring that Israel had agreed to suspend all construction.

    An astute American pundit recently said that the Obama administration “Uses lying as an offensive weapon.” You bet.

    The administration added insult to injury by announcing with a straight face that the Palestinian Authority has agreed to stop incitement among its people. Do they really believe anyone believes this nonsense?

    “craziest claims” = birth certificate. Kenyan birth.

    “Social media and blogs putting pressure on you”
    He’s acting like your guardian, deceivingly telling you
    how you should feel and act.
    The social media is putting pressure on him and exposing him. It will be dealt with soon. Because I, Obama, do not want you to have pressures in your life.

    I’m going to send you to re education camps. The re-education camps will strengthen you to defeat thoughts and ideas that are opposing beliefs and thoughts that are opposite from mine.

    This is one speech I would be very interested to see the reverse speech conclusion.

    This man is the King of Manipulation.
