Obama Is a Hover Mother? Bahaha

How's it going, folks?
You may have heard about 'Bam's speech that's been, er, raising some eyebrows...
When I heard about it, I was seriously on the verge of puking...
No, it's not taxes. No, it's not a new bailout. It's his desire to restrict the access of information...meaning BLOGS! As in the one you're reading right now!

While knowledge is power, the information age could be too much of a good thing. That's the message some heard in President Obama's weekend commencement speech in which he bemoaned

Speaking at Hampton University in Virginia, the president raised alarms when he said "information becomes a distraction, a diversion" that is putting "pressure on our country and on our democracy."

The president suggested less is more when it comes to absorbing news content and urged graduates to take a skeptical eye toward news from blogs, cable television and radio as well as modern gadgets like iPods and PlayStations.

The class of 2010 is "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 that high on the truth meter," the president said, earning an honorary doctorate of laws degree during the ceremony.

"And with iPods and iPads; and Xboxes and PlayStations -- none of which I know how to work -- (laughter) -- information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation. So all of this is not only putting pressure on you; it's putting new pressure on our country and on our democracy," he said.

But coming from a commander-in-chief known for his fondness for technology and skill at employing it to his political advantage, Obama's comments were seen as more than just a president's lament that the Kindle could someday replace the hardcover.

"Nobody (has) used the media more masterfully" than Obama, said Brent Bozell, president of the conservative Media Research Center. "Now he turns against certain elements of it because he doesn't need them anymore, he thinks."

Obama has endured some nasty rumors at the hands of the Internet. Blogs and comment pages continue to allege that the president has not been honest about his place of birth -- Hawaii -- or about his religion -- Christianity.

The White House has assiduously rebutted and marginalized those whisper campaigns.

"With so many voices clamoring for attention on blogs, and 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. Let's face it, even some of the craziest claims can quickly gain traction. I've had some experience in that regard," he said.

Targeting cable, radio and blogs has become somewhat of a political sport of the Obama administration.

The president in February, as the health care debate was in a crescendo, urged Democratic senators to "turn off" their televisions. He singled out CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and blogs, urging lawmakers to get out of the "echo chamber." That was after the administration spent several weeks in the fall criticizing Fox News.

Last September, the president also used a string of major network and cable interviews to scold the media for playing up "outrageous" political comments.

Another odd moment came in March, when an e-mail sent to Senate staffers warned them not to visit The Drudge Report out of concern for a virus. At the time, Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., alleged that "somebody" was intentionally trying to "discourage" people from visiting the Web site, which is highly influential in shaping daily news coverage.

Bozell said to prove his "sincerity" about media and technology gripes, Obama should delete his massive e-mail list and take his staff off TV.

"It's just posturing on his part," Bozell said. "He is trying to put himself in opposition to those forces to improve his status with the public." {source}

I seriously cannot wrap my idiotic teenage mind around this! The fact that he would have the nerve to try and even suggest something like that, gah.
This is just like Animal Farm! I swear to God, it's like they're just ripping pages right out of that book and trying to apply that to America.
In that book--which YOU HAVE TO READ, no joke--Napoleon (who's based upon Karl Marx, btw) and his like henchmen-esque people lie about the 7 commandments that they (the pigs) wrote out. Things on the list--that the animals thought--addressed things like: don't sleep in beds, don't drink alcohol etc. In truth, there was a little phrase that the pigs ended up adding to make the laws okay for them. Like: don't sleep in a bed with sheets, and don't drink alcohol in access. Because the animals couldn't read--preventing them from reading information--the rulers could change the truth, ya know, malipulate it.
See the connection here...Obama restricts the internet, the blogs, the news--*cough*foxnews*cough--and suddenly, whaddya know, he lies about what's really goin' on. Soon enough, we're taxed to Kingdom come and we have no control over anything.
Depressing, much?

This just shows that Obama has this uncontrollable to desire to, uh, control. He's like a, as I like to cal 'em, Hover Mother. They want to control every little aspect of everything.
"No, Sally, don't go there."
"No, Bill, don't touch that."
"No, Bob, don't talk to her."
"No, Edward, don't wear that."
"No, Bella, don't smell that."
You the idea--nice little Twlight reference in there, eh?--they tell everyone what to do, when to do it, what's true...blah, blah, blah.

I think that fits, don't you? Mother Obama...heck, in a few years, he'll be Saint Obama...Oh, I'm so gonna get hunted down for that. Anyhoo....

But, yeah. You get the idea.

I think we need to keep a very close eye on this, and see if the drops any more little hints.

Cinco De Mayo Isn't a Real Holiday? Say It Ain't So!

Hey people:
So, before I start my rant, I wanted to give a shoutout to the two newest followers of the blog: "Welcome."

Administrators at a California high school sent five students home on Wednesday after they refused to remove their American flag T-shirts and bandannas -- garments the school officials deemed "incendiary" on Cinco de Mayo.

The five teens were sitting at a table outside Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif., on Wednesday morning when Assistant Principal Miguel Rodriguez asked two of them to remove their American flag bandannas, one of their parents told FoxNews.com. The boys complied, but were asked to accompany Rodriguez to the principal's office.

The five students -- Daniel Galli, Austin Carvalho, Matt Dariano, Dominic Maciel and Clayton Howard -- were then told they must turn their T-shirts inside-out or be sent home, though it would not be considered a suspension. Rodriguez told the students he did not want any fights to break out between Mexican-American students celebrating their heritage and those wearing American flags.

Dariano's mother, Diana, told FoxNews.com she and parents of the other four students are now demanding an apology from officials and are considering a lawsuit.

"We want an apology," Diana Dariano said Thursday. "Who in the United States of America would have an issue with that? It's a sad, sad day."

Dariano said her son has at least four T-shirts with American flags that he wears often and did not try to cause any conflict at school.

"I'm more hurt than anything," she said. "It is so hurtful and disrespectful the way this has turned. These are American kids."

The boys told Rodriguez and Principal Nick Boden that turning their shirts inside-out was disrespectful, so their parents decided to take them home.

"I just couldn't believe it," Julie Fagerstrom, Maciel's mother, told the Morgan Hill Times. "I'm an open-minded parent, but it's got to be on both sides. It can't be five kids singled out."

Galli told NBC Bay Area, "They said we could wear it on any other day, but today is sensitive to Mexican-Americans because it's supposed to be their holiday so we were not allowed to wear it."

In a statement released Thursday, Morgan Hill Unified School District Superintendent Wesley Smith characterized the incident as "extremely unfortunate" and said the matter is under investigation.

"The Morgan Hill Unified School District does not prohibit nor do we discourage wearing patriotic clothing," Smith's statement read. "The incident on May 5 at Live Oak High School is extremely unfortunate. While campus safety is our primary concern and administrators made decisions yesterday in an attempt to ensure campus safety, students should not, and will not, be disciplined for wearing patriotic clothing. This matter is under investigation and appropriate action will be taken."

Officials at Live Oak High School did not return several messages seeking comment on Thursday. A secretary told the Morgan Hill Times that Boden and Rodriguez were unavailable for comment on Wednesday.

According to its website, Live Oak High School is a 1,300-student institution in the southern part of Santa Clara County, with most students residing in the nearby cities of Morgan Hill and San Jose.

"The student population reflects the rich ethnic and socioeconomic diversity of the community," the website reads.

More than 100 students were spotted wearing the colors of the Mexican flag -- red, white and green -- as they left school, including some who had the flag painted on their faces or arms, the Morgan Hill times reported.

While bandannas of any color are banned at the school, its dress code policy does not contain references to American flags.

"However, any clothing or decoration which detracts from the learning environment is prohibited," the policy reads. "The school has the right to request that any student dressing inappropriately for school will change into other clothes, be sent home to change, and/or be subject to disciplinary action."

Freshman Laura Ponce, who had a Mexican flag painted on her face and chest, told the Morgan Hill Times that Cinco de Mayo is the "only day" Mexican-American students can show their national pride.

"There was a lot of drama going on today," Ponce told the newspaper.

Some other Mexican-American students reportedly said their flags were taken away or asked to be put away, but no other students were sent home on Wednesday.

Eugene Volokh, a professor of law at the University of California-Los Angeles, said the students are protected under California Education Code 48950, which prohibits schools from enforcing a rule subjecting a high school student to disciplinary sanctions solely on the basis of conduct, that when engaged outside of campus, is protected by the First Amendment.

If the school could point to previous incidents sparked by students who wore garments with American flags, they could argue that the flag is likely to lead to "substantial disruption," Volokh said.

"If, for example, there had been fights over similar things at past events, if there had been specific threats made," he said. "But if [school officials] just say, 'Well, we think it might be offensive to people,' that's generally speaking not enough."

Volokh said the students and their parents likely have a winning case on their hands if they decide to take the matter to court.

"Oh yes, it's almost open and shut," he said.

Lis Wiehl, a former federal prosecutor and a Fox News legal analyst, said the incident appears to a "blatant" violation of the students' First Amendment right to free speech. She noted that inciting violence is an exception to a First Amendment legal defense, but Wiehl said she saw no indications that the students provoked anyone.

"Unless I'm missing something, this seems like a blatant violation of the First Amendment," said Wiehl, adding that uniforms are not required at the public school. "And they're wearing, of all horrific things, the American flag." {source{

Well, this is lovely, isn't it?
First off, something I found out from Rush Limbaugh is Cinco De Mayo isn't even a real holiday. Surprised? So was I. It turns out it was invented by Corona Beer as a way to sell more beer.
Surprised, again? Me too.

Hm, so, now with that fascinating piece of information, let's re-look at this article.
So, these kids had to change their shirts because of a beer holiday, not even a "Mexican" holiday...nice.

Good God, why does this keep happening!? Again, and again, it's the same thing, repeating itself! I swear, they want to take away our rights, one at a time.
The way I see it, is I'm imagining The Grinch in the Who's houses, silently picking up the little bits and pieces of their joy--aka, Christmas presents and decorations.
Haha, does his creepy smile not remind you of Nancy Pelosi, even just a widdle bit? :)

In my English class, we just finished reading Animal Farm by George Orwell. First off, it's a danged scary book. Not because I'm afraid of some dictator-ish animals, but because I could so see us turning into that. In the end, the animals that revolt, end up turning into what they were revolting from. They turned the farm into a communist dictatorship; which, I can only imagine, is Obama's dream.
They had this one commandment that they kept reciting throughout the book "All animals are equal." Well, in the end, they changed it to what it had been all along, "All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others."
Do you not see that beginning to appear in our own Animal Farm? Ya know, the school gets to dictate everything, making the Mexicans seem more "equal."

These "Mexican-Americans" and "African-Americans" really drive me crazy. No, not them specifically, but the hyphenated American part does. Because we're all so worried about being perceived as "racist," we give them special titles. Well, isn't that racism? We're treating them differently than the rest...aren't we? We live in fear of them; which that is so ridiculous. We are America, for crying out loud! We are the melting pot! We don't call people "Italian-Americans" or "Irish-Americans." So, why do they need to be called their own special name? Don't they feel prejudiced against?

I dunno, is it just me, or do you agree with these observations?

Let me know below.

Well, yeah.
