Obama’s Blunders: Government vs. Internet

By Frank McCaffrey — The Internet has been a great technology to build business in the last 20 years. That is perhaps the main reason it is being targeted by the government. Check out this parade of blunders from the Obama Administration with regards to the net.

    The government is the enemy and has not been able to control the information on the Internet. 

  • My President is cool
    I am sure glad that our President flies somewhere every day he is not playing golf. He needs time off because he has been so busy he does not sleep.
    He stays up thinking of new ways to help we the peopple.He has done so much with so little he had to print 3 x as many dollars as when he took office. He had to spend or borrow more than he takes in so he could accomplish so much with only 5 Trillion dollars in 3.5 years. We don’t need to worry about that because our grandchildren can easily pay it off. That is really a gift to them because these dollars have stimulated job growth now and in the future He comes from
    a poor background and when he was little he loved to eat the family dog and
    on bad days he ate grasshopper. Some ppeople say he was not born in this
    country but he has posted his brth certificates online. He says he can’t
    help it his copy machine keeps screwing up and the last form had
    to be put together from 3 copies. I don’t understnad that.
    His energy policy is really amazing. We don’t need as much carbon based fuels so he blocked the Keystone pipeline to get safe clean energy from our friends in Canada. Its ok since we will have windmills and algae to fill our outdated vehicles. Since we don’t need as much oil, Canada has decided to sell it to China where their EPA is much more strict that ours. That is called going green. Don’t forget to inflate your tires since that will help with the gasoline which is too low in price.It has been proven that we are polluting the
    air so much, we are becoming hotter. The gas is poison is CO2. That is why we breath
    it out. Stupid plants breath it in. I don’t know why they want poison gas. Its becoming
    such a large amount that it makes up .03% of the atmosphere. He is thinking about chargeing
    people for the average number of times they breath out per year. I say it would
    be better off to charge cars, trucks, and power plants since they put out the most.
    He heard that the Mexican drug cartel was running short on guns and ammo so he had the ATF send them some guns free of charge. Mexico has a stupid gun ban and crime including murder is much lower than here. There have only 50,000 murders in that last few years near the border. They keep leaving the guns at the scene of killings so we can have them back. . Drug prices in the US should drop soon since its much easier to transport drugs with guns. I could go on but I know hehas our best interest at heart and always speaks the truth without any notes. Thus he is reputed to be the smartest man to ever inhabit the White House and I believe it. I am sure happy he is protected by the men of the secret service which has the highest standards of conduct and morals. He took in so much
    money on April 15th he gave a reward to the GSA agency that watchs all Government
    spending to keep it as low as possible. They consider the money
    belongs to We the People and they must be frugal. The GSA saved us so much money he gave
    them extra money for a party in Vegas which cost over $800,000. He also gave the
    defense guy Panetta free trips to fly home since has has saved or created
    many of our lives.

    In one very “technical” way, Obama was telling the truth when he said that Google and other Internet businesses would not exist without government spending.  The Internet began as ARPANET – the Advanced Research Projects Agency NETwork, under funding from the Department of Defense.  It was viewed as needed, so that various government research facilities could exchange experiment data among MANY other facilities simultaneously.
    Up to that point, all data was hand-carried by couriers, and often a lab that could really have used the data was left off of the courier list.

    Eventually, because a lot of breakthrough research actually happens on college campuses, with professors having grad students work on their pet projects, the ARPANET was expanded to include many such campuses.

    As these college students graduated and moved on to private-sector jobs, some of them saw an opportunity to try and expand the use of this network to the public.  When this began to happen on a widespread basis, ARPANET actually began to yield a profit.  And, since no federal agency is allowed to make a profit, the government eventually divested the bulk of its “ownership” to private-sector businesses.

    So, Obama was correct in that the Internet began with government funds.  What he was trying to pass off on the public, though – that companies such as Google and Yahoo could not have been started without government assistance, is patently false.  All those folks needed was the genius of their ideas, and for the government to keep its hands off and not tax them for being profitable.

  • Hold_Politicians_Accountable

    All of our politicians need to be held accountable including candidates. We can start by holding Congress responsible for not standing up for american citizens that they are suppose to serve. Send this to everybody on your mailing list. Recommend it on Facebook, Tweet it. Ask everybody you can to do the same. We need all the signatures we can get.

    The dirty SOB Barrack Obama is doing everything he can to control the Internet and to control what anyone is saying about him and I do believe he wants to have the ability to punish anyone that does not agree with him.

    Obama = world’s dumbest empty suit….

    My question is this- why, if the states elect representatives to congress, are they not state employees instead of federal employees?  They should get $10,000 a year more than their state bretheren instead of being able to raise their wages and doing nothing to earn them.  Or they should get hourly salaries and be made to WORK for those wages.

  • Vote out all RINOs, starting with Orrin Hatch in Utah and on May 8th in Indiana, RINO Senator Richard Lugar needs to be defeated and sent back home.

    yes, we must give credit to al gore.
