During Obama's first term he started on his trek to limit sources of info from network nsws, to radio, to the internet - which is the most extensive by far.  It was given a very innocent title: Net Neutrality which, simply put, means total federal CONTROL of access to, or knowledge of, information. 

It's what dictators of communist regimes (like NKorea or China) or theocracies (like Iran, Syria or the Arab nations) enforce on their population. It wass also Obama's intention when he assigned Mark Lloyd as his FCC Czar. And Czars don't require Senate approval.  Lloyd was/is a huge admirer of the now dead hard left Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez.  

 

In the video above Obama said that "Information becomes a distraction".  It was his response because of the oppossing views being reported by Foxx News, conservative talk radio, as well as the websites which, unlike the news networks, are the most extensive.  

It's seems to be the opinion of perhaps a few conservative-minded sorts that perhaps there is too much access to info on some sites.  As we heard on the video above, BHO says that too much info is "distracting".  Imo, only FAKE info (or disinformation) is not only the genuine distration - but totally deceiving as is intended.  Thus, to even try to limilt, or ration, info, would directly and exclusively benefit the liberal (aka socialist, pro communist, or progressive) agenda. 

To complain that there's just way too much info out there is NOT a problem at all; but a blessing.  Thank God we are Americans!

Luis, Being informed and a good messenger I view as two different animals. Once you factor in things like the next election, special interest (leaving out the special interests for their constituents you know we the people)and often just the sad fact their spineless in the Cabal kinda sums up the reasons for not being better messengers. Truth is both Democrats and Republicans alike in Congress know unfunded liabilities are truly on an unsustainable path.

"I think the reason that many conservatives do that is that the GOP are very bad at messaging"

Hmmm... I thought conservatives were supposed to be the most "informed" people.

Excuses...excuses.

Comment by Patricia Gillenwater on June 20, 2017 at 7:24pm

Luis, I think the reason that many conservatives do that is that the GOP are very bad at messaging the goals and reason reform is crucial.

"Many Republicans because they are always concerned by the next election true they back off of SS reform".

Yes. And a key reason being that many of THEIR OWN constituents tell them to back off or they'll look for someone else.  Status quo always wins.

Luis, I would say conservatives within the population are pretty darn attentive to history. We have some Republicans in Congress as an example Mike Lee and Rand Paul who pay attention. Many Republicans because they are always concerned by the next election true they back off of SS reform.Not a crew who I would say anyway principled.

"History seems not to be important to the left"

Unfortunately, the same can be send about the "right" as well - especially where actual fiscal accountability is concerned. 

In the many years that I've been posting about the genuine NEED for SocSec and Medicare reform - no where...and I do mean NO WHERE...have I ever been able to get a majority on board.  NO ONE...at any supposed "conservative" or "TEA" website  seems to be the least bit interested about going after SocSec reform w/ the same passion we saw back in 2009-2010 against Obamacare.  The concensus has always been "DON'T TOUCH IT!!!" or "Ths not the time"...blah blah blah.  Hypocrits!

And we wonder why DC doesn't give sh*t! 

It has been proven beyond any doubt that we can include the repeal of Obamacare into the mix as well.

Luis, Glad you agreed. History seems not to be important to the left except when it comes to slavery, Jim Crow laws, KKK, etc. even there they seem to dismiss that these things grew within the democrat party.

Passing more and more gun control legislation will not solve the problems -- laws are not always deterrents serve the state after the fact. If the state went door to door and searched homes for guns tomorrow would bring massive flows of illegal guns in to the USA.

Must address the root cause of societal ills.

"If one is over cooked looking at what is available on the net -- up to that person to stop looking at the crap."

Totally agree, Pat. As for that "law" they're trying to get on the CO ballot: Really laughable. If it passes:  1. Simply buy it out of state; 2. Someone OVER 13 yrs old (14?) could purchase the smartphone for them. 

Have stricter laws and regs actually stopped gun purchases? Not if you're a CRIMINAL, that's for sure! In Seattle, WA, the anti gun city council got a their own tax attached to gun and ammo purchases in the city: $25 hike per gun and 2 - 5 cents per round [*].  Result: Sales in Seattle are way down. Purchasers are simply buying them  in OTHER towns!  Btw, crime has risen since.

What's next - restrict the purchase of iPADs and laptops too?  Jeez.  Useless.

IMO, the only thing that NEEDS to be completely censored is any message that sponsors, encourages, or teaches how to commit acts of violence. It should NOT be allowed to hide behind the guise of "art".  I give you wanna-be killer, James Hodgkinson.

I'd rather see NO ideas - than BAD ones to improve things. 

Comment by Patricia Gillenwater on June 19, 2017 at 2:41pm

I kinda chuckled today as the news flowed in that CO is toying with putting on the ballot, if it reached 300K, signatures that it would be a crime to sell a smartphone to 13 yr old's and under.

What is happening to parenting?

If one is over cooked looking at what is available on the net -- up to that person to stop looking at the crap.

Remember that, Am? It's the first thought that popped up w/ your p[ening argument "It depends what the meaning of [infrmation] is".

Throughout people's lives they/we are bombarded w lies. Is the answer simply to cover up our hearing to keep anything from coming in? No.

It's up to the INDIVIDUAL to LEARN to separate facts from the rest of what we read or hear.

Lies and deceptions are the risks we have to endure if we're to continue to have the First Amendment. It no more guarantees a society of perfect honesty than did the Founders ever having promised anyone actual "Happiness". They simply stated it's our devine (or Natural) Right to "Pursue" it.

As for information overload: This is not the 18th century where info was passed either person-to-person or by handwriting. Today info is literally accessible at our fingertips. PC's, laptops, iPAD's and smartphones have all but made newspapers and even libraries obsolete. It's a 24/7 news cycle where even a mistweet (covefefe) becomes "Breaking News".

Has there ever been such slautghers (beheadings, etc) of jews and christians at the level we are "witnessing" (keyword) today? YES. The same applies to all other crimes - and wars. What has added to the VOLUME of crimes comitted was the advancement of weapons technology. Had there been the weapons then that we have today - who's to say "America" would've even been discovered at all.

And it's technology that has facilitated the means of which info is made available to even the poorest individuals.

Yes, the VOLUME of info/news that's out there can be maddening. When it starts getting to me - I simply take a time-out.

As for shutting down an entire EDITORIALS sectio of this 912 site specifically - because, as you said on "The Steam Room" discussion that it's: 1. Hardly used, and 2. That you feel that there's "too much info" can be potentiay dangerous. It is very much the same argument that Obama has used then - which is the very point of this particular EDITORIAL.

Rationing info?

Watch what you wish for. You just might get it!
