The mainstream media needs to be overhelmingly challenged about telling the people the truth about Obama’s Communist connection. Speak up now.

For those of you attending tea party meetings it’s time to raise hell over Obama’s hidden Communist philosophy. You have a tea party forum, use it.

Who cares what this constant student/community organizer/professional politician thinks. Or says. Everything he says has a political purpose. This was meant for public consumption. The problem for Obama is that he's never really done an honest days work in his life. The only times he's ever broken sweat were on election eves. The only reason he's saying these things is because his opponent is a serious man who made a fortune in business while he himself has always been a hired hand, always at the public teat. His opponent managed an Olympics while he couldn't get it for his own city (the violent crime and urban blight apparently weren't selling points); his opponent governed a state (Massachusetts, ugh, but your go where the jobs are ...) while he stayed in successive offices achieved by questionable means, and for about 15 minutes each time; and so forth and so on; so he's suggesting by enthymeme that all of these things, ordinarily considered to be hallmarks of success in America--particularly in this venue--were actually not earned but given to his opponent by others. And yes, all of this will be on the final exam in November.

I used the first version of the internet. We used to send crude “emails” but they went to a printer. Later on they went to a screen. You had to have the printer ID or screen ID to send and everyone could read the messages.

The original internet was DARPANET, a DOD invention. So if a company is solely an internet based company then to some degree the bastard is correct. However, the US citizen paid for that R&D a long tome ago so what difference does it make?

Oh I have no doubt he’s a moron..if he was some sort of genius we would have gotten those college transcripts released a LONG time ago. I could beat Obama in a debate without even trying, it would be SO easy! Without a teleprompter Obama can’t put a complete sentence together..but getting back to what Obama said here, this is does actually believe..he was raised to believe that only Govt can take care of you, that people are useless without the Govt

0bama also said that he wants the economy created from the bottom up. I'm trying to think of a time when a got a job, or capital to create a business from a poor person.

0bama, his czars, the taxes and regulations have got to be history on January 20, 2013 at 1200 hrs. If he is reelected, the chances of CWII are GREATLY increased.

Mr. Obama, you Sir, are an educated IDIOT....
Three times, I started a business, without anyone’s help, and failed. The fourth time, it was successful, without the help of anyone. It was my idea, the risk was taken by me and the rewards, Sir, are MINE. I earned every penny of it. All the government has done is rob from me. Your form of Government, Sir, is nothing but a legalized thief...and you, Sir, LIE!!!!

National Socialism, citizen, National Socialism:

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” Barack Hussein Obama, 7/2/2008
They don’t call it a Civil Defense force, that would imply we need (or perhaps deserve) defense.

The official name is National Civilian Community Corps.

I think of it as the NATCCC, or simply the NATCs...

We had an intranet kind of thing at my university in 1977, and by 1980 emails were going out of the science research facility where I worked. By 1985 my husband was trying to make me connect my circa 1982 home computer to his work computer so he could nag me during the day (NO).

That’s a gross oversimplification of the origins of the Internet. There were all kinds of other computer-to-terminal and then peer-to-peer protocols used in industry through the ‘60s and ‘70s, when BBN did its first work on Arpanet. Those, particularly packet-switching, protocols in various forms evolved for more disparate, multi-computer networks. There was a lot of interchange back and forth between those worlds as competing and subsequent protocols—most especially TCP/IP were developed and adopted as open standards.

It’s not like academia and business were sitting there like baby birds, mouths agape, waiting for the federal government to put Internet goodies into their mouths. All kinds of alternatives were about and could have been adopted in various ways. “The Internet” as we know it really came about IMO not even with the ‘worldwide web’, but with the Mosaic browser, which was dreamed up by academic technology students who, yes, worked in a lab with federal funding. They later commercialized it via Netscape.

"Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet"

You ignorant sack o' Kenyan monkey shit, the Internet was originally ARPANET created by DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency), for developing a means of communications in a post-nuclear strike world (among other purposes). The government didn't invent the Internet so "companies could make money".

0bama is just a stupid ass, that's the long and short of it.

They know they didn’t -- look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something -- there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. (Applause.)

If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business -- you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet."

Like all socialists, he can't make the simple distinction between debt and responsibility. You owe a debt to your family (and I mean this in a generational-spanning sense; your ancestors and immediate family) for helping you learn how to, say... play the kazoo. If you're a prodigy kazoo player playing at the Met, you thank those that taught you and inspired you. If you're a crummy kazoo player, it's not their responsibility for your failings. It's yours. The abdication of responsibility through the muddling of that principle with that of debt is the liberal socialist way. It's a demeaning of words and ideas. It's the slow, constricting crush of thought.

Elizabeth Warren Video: One of the Great Teaching Tools on Liberalism
http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2011/09/22/elizabeth_warren_video_one_of_the_great_teaching_tools_on_liberalism

Rush “Somebody needs to read to her a story...Somebody needs to read the story of the Little Red Hen. It’s an old Russian folktale, by the way. The Little Red Hen finds a grain of wheat and asks for help from the other farmyard animals to plant it. However, no animal will help her. At each stage of the work there’s planting, harvesting, threshing, milling the wheat into flour, baking the flour into bread, all of that. The hen again asks for help from the other barnyard animals — and, again, none of them will help.

Finally the hen has done it all on her own, completed her task and asks who will help her eat the bread, and this time everybody volunteers! But she says, “Nope. No one helped me, you don’t get any bread,” and she eats it with her chicks, leaving none for anyone else.”
