Almost 30 years ago,Richard Nixon was caught in a web of lies and had the decency to resign.

Yet our current bossman shows no sign of doing so,even though he makes Nixon look like a saint in comparison.

US to give up control over Internet


For those who are interested, here is a less hyperbolic take on the issue. Still not favorable, but not 'giving up control to China and Russia'. 

http://www.extremetech.com/computing/178578-us-gives-up-its-last-bit-of-control-over-the-internet-but-really-its-just-a-pr-stunt

This, in other words, is almost certainly a PR move. The United States is giving up a certain degree of control, yes, but nothing critical. By flinging open the door to a multinational approach, the Obama Administration can claim to be responding to the concerns raised by other nations when in reality it’s done nothing of substance to address the genuine issues. It’s the same doublespeak approach that the NSA trots out to defend its actions, repeatedly responding to criticism by noting that its programs are “lawful and appropriate foreign intelligence operations,” without ever confronting the fact that substantial portions of the US electorate (and the citizens of other countries) fundamentally disagree with the definition of its terms.

Been trying to follow this. 

A similar measure is being undertaken in the UK at the same time.

This is a carefully coordinated and crafted attempt to silence dissenting elements in the Media and not just in the US.

Easier to do in the UK as they have no guaranteed freedom of the press ala our 1st.  Shockingly, Skye News, Fox's counterpart in the UK has signed on with their plan.

I guess the only unfiltered news available anymore is only found on the net.  One of the first things Obama got through in his first term was the innernet kill switch.  2+2 = 4 ...

Might be time to get a really good short wave radio.

Though I have my issues with President Nixon/Bush/Obama, I like what Ms. Obama is doing with her bully pulpit.  I just wish she would take it a step further and include GMOs:

Bravo - and how do we go about that?

That's the point, stewie. If Bush's unpopularity with Europeans is irrelevant, why is Obama's declining popularity relevant to anything? The posting of these kind of popularity polls seem based on personal animus, and little else.

Not sure what HC has to do with anything, except for the fact (as you point out) we're seeing the same behavior towards the Current Occupant that we saw towards Bush 43. What does that say about the people who post these sorts of "Obama is the worst" blog posts?

 

Whoa.....stop the presses.  Maybe the apocalypse is upon us after all. I actually agree with you.{#Eek}
