Obama: Technology becomes 'diversion' rather than 'a tool of empowerment' = Let's Ban The Internets !!!!!
President Barack Obama cited the influx of new technology as "putting new pressures on our country and on our democracy" in a commencement address to graduates at Virginia's Hampton University on Sunday.

"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 rank all that high on the truth meter," Obama said. "With iPods and iPads; Xboxes and PlayStations; information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment.

"All of this is not only putting new pressures on you; it is putting new pressures on our country and on our democracy."

Obama said that education would "fortify" the graduates to meet the challenges posed by these changes.

The president said education not only leaves the students prepared to compete in a global economy, but "it can also prepare you as citizens."

"With so many voices clamoring for attention on blogs, on cable, on talk radio, it can be difficult, at times, to sift through it all; to know what to believe; to figure out who’s telling the truth and who’s not," Obama said. "Let’s face it, even some of the craziest claims can quickly gain traction. I’ve had some experience with that myself. Fortunately, you’ll be well positioned to navigate this terrain.

"Your education has honed your research abilities, sharpened your analytical powers, and given you a context for understanding the world," the president added. "Those skills will come in handy."

In other words WE ARE ALL DUMB ASSES and our government should decide what is fact and fiction. Didn't we see that with the Ron Paul campaign? Oh wait, that was the media.

Wow, take a look at somedude1 posts he has made since he joined GLP. Seems to be a professional shill

So how much do you get paid for that anyways? I know this is a bit off topic but you know, it is nice to see our tax dollars at work.

Every single angle this Marxist takes is designed to reduce personal liberties and increase government regulation.
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

He is entirely correct. I know people who text all day instead of doing their homework. Who spend all their time on facebook instead of doing their job. Who spend their lives play WoW and MW2 and the endless onslaught of video games, instead of LIVING. And many of you are guilty of widdling away your hours on this very website thinking that you're in the know, special, informed in a way that makes you superior to those who surround you. You are wrong. You have wasted endless hours here, and it is sad.

I have to admit this was a real eye opener for me. Any President who is not the champion and absolute advocate for freedom of speech is not a person I want in office.

He was basically saying with this information people get confused on the truth (please read what they really says) truth is more available then ever before, there is still a bunch of junk but more frustrtingly is we can no longer work in complete darkness. Damn right this poses threats to our goverment and democracy because we are waking to see this no DAMN democracy.

My take is essentially the Internet and information age advanced far faster then what any of the (Powers) thought it would. The are having to play catch up and deive new plans to limit the truth and have to fight this war on many more fronts.

Great day for the world... The spokesman for the powers is showing there is a defect in the armour... We are exposing it. Now is the time more then ever to use these tools to learn, become educated, and challange what is occuring. If we wait to long they will catch up and the spread of truth will once again be crushed.
