    “You’re coming of age in a 24/7 electronic world that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of problem, some of which aren’t always true…” Barack Hussein Obama

    Should we follow the Presidents lead and avoid electronic devices in favor of Katie Couric?

    Funny, isn't Barry addicted to his Crackberry? Didn't he say prior to his Coronation that they'd have to pry it out of his cold dead hands (or something to that effect)?

    What a hypocrite! Surprise (not). :rolleyes:

    On this day,May 10th in 1933, the Nazis staged a public burning of "All Quiet on the Western Front",
    by Eric Maria Remarque. The Nazis beheaded his sister for sharing his "defeatist" views.

    In 1933, the Nazis banned and burned Remarque's works, and issued propaganda stating that he was a descendant of French Jews and that his real last name was Kramer, a Jewish-sounding name, and his original name spelled backwards. This is still listed in some biographies despite the complete lack of proof. ( December 16, 1943 : Elfriede Remark (married name Scholz) sentenced to death (October 30) by the Nazi’s People’s Court for “undermining military force” and beheaded by axe in Berlin-Plötzensee)

    In a related story,

    US President Barack Obama lamented Sunday that in the iPad and Xbox era, information had become a diversion that was imposing new strains on democracy, in his latest critique of modern media. Obama: Information is a distraction and diversion., page 1

    'Tis true, there was a big flap over his insistence that he WOULD rule with a blackberry in his hand. And if his kids are school students ... they most likely have a laptop like every other student in the country. *Gasp!* Do ya think they might be hearing terrible stuff that's happening in the world ... including, say, how socialism can save us all this terrible stuff?

    He is a hypocrite ... and a liar, cheat, and thief.
