    Obo would like to decide what's "news". You know, for the people who are confused.

    "We are going to have to rebuild within this wild-wild-west-of-information flow some sort of curating function that people agree to," Obama said at an innovation conference in Pittsburgh.
    "There has to be, I think, some sort of way in which we can sort through information that passes some basic truthiness tests and those that we have to discard, because they just don't have any basis in anything that's actually happening in the world," Obama added."

    Yeah, let's create a new Cabinet position - "Secretary of Information" - what could possibly go wrong?

    The funny thing is, there's maybe one cable network and a few radio talk show hosts who don't have their tongues up Obama's ass. And he still feels insecure.

    It almost as if they are literally beggging us to start a revolution. They really need to quit it with the authoritarianism. People are getting tired of this borderline 1984 shit being pushed on them without say.

    He could tell me the sky was blue and I would still go to the window to check it out. No trust. I assume he has an ulterior motive for everything and those motives are against my best interests. Fuck him. Fuck Hilary. And fuck you.

    Holy shit. Please tell me that's from The Onion.

    I knew they had their sights firmly set on the 2A, but it looks like they're aiming to take down the 1A, as well.

    you have to give it to this asshole, he has fundamentally changed things. i'll be dead before the millions of illegals who pour out millions of kids a year change this country into some hispanic/muslim/african paradise. they have all done so well in making stable, law abiding societies.

    i kind of wish i could be around see it turn into a multicultural shit hole. the idea that is beloved by the left! :)
