Skip to comments.Obama’s Terrifying Vision of a ‘Smarter’ Government
Posted on 07/22/2013 1:05:31 PM PDT by Olog-hai
President Obama is all excited about this brand new thing hes thought of, after four years in office, that no one has ever thought of before. Hes going to make the government smarter and more efficient. And hes really going to do it. He even has a hashtag for the Twitters#SmarterGovand everything. And despite a few obvious problems with the planlike in the new, smarter government, where is Joe Biden going to work?Obama is really going at this one with childlike glee. He wants to make the government leaner, quicker, and more intelligent. Unstoppable.
And thats about the most terrifying thing I can imagine.
Really, have you thought about how scary it would be if we actually had a smarter government? Right now, the IRS is targeting conservatives, the Department of Justice is spying on journalists, and the NSA is spying on absolutely everyone. Now imagine if the government were much smarter when it went about doing all these things. Wed never even hear about the targeting and spying as the government went after us in efficient and intelligent ways. Wed be defenseless.

Be thankful we’re not getting all the government we’re paying for.

Remember all the slick TV ads telling us IBM was working on a Smarter Planet? Well, THIS is what they meant.
When pigs fly.
A smarter government would be one that does only those things it is permitted to do as enumerated in the Constitution.
Words mean things!
“Smarter Government” SHOULD mean, doing more with less and staying OUT of your personal business!
To Obama, it means:
“Knowing more about your personal business and then regulating and taxing you to prevent you from being too productive.”
Personally I think they believe that now that they have access to all this 21st. Century computer technology, they can FINALLY be the first people in human history to be successful centrally managing an economy.
Just as soon as SAP releases that Five Year Plan module.
I wish you hadn't mentioned SAP. Now I can't stop laughing.
Has nothing to do with the gov stocking up big time on ammo, and the gov completely mistrusting almost half of the citizens and wanting to eliminate its enemies.
Their “smarter government” knows and controls everything you do.
How else are they going to enforce “no one may buy or sell without the mark”?
You, Mr. McFrog, owe me a nice glass of Cabernet and a mechanical keyboard cleaning for that SAP crack.
That is some seriously funny stuff. I will have to shamelessly steal, with attribution, of course.
Yeah, throw technology at government, that’s the ticket. The Nazis were pretty technical and efficient in their day, too.
Yeah, and 10,000,000 political prisoners and official hate-objects paid the full price for it.
That’s a great quote, thanks for sharing.
Every thought this guy has is a nightmare.
OBAMANOMICS IN ACTION
The kids filed into class Monday morning. They were all very excited.
Their weekend assignment was to sell something, and then give a talk on salesmanship.
Little Sally led off. “I sold Girl Scout cookies and I made $30” she said proudly. “My sales approach was to appeal to the customer’s civic spirit and I credit that approach for my obvious success.”
“Very good”, said the teacher.
Little Debbie was next. “I sold magazines” she said, “I made $45 and I explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current events.”
“Very good, Debbie”, said the teacher.
Eventually, it was Little Johnny’s turn. The teacher held her breath.
Little Johnny walked to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full of cash on the teacher’s desk. “$2,467”, he said.
“$2,467!” cried the teacher, “What in the world were you selling?”
“Toothbrushes”, said Little Johnny.
“Toothbrushes”, echoed the teacher, How could you possibly sell enough tooth brushes to make that much money?”
“I found the busiest corner in town”, said Little Johnny, “I set up a Dip & Chip stand and I gave everybody who walked by a free sample.”
They all said the same thing, “Hey, this tastes like dog shit!”
Then I would say, “It is dog shit. Wanna buy a toothbrush? I used the Obama method of giving you some shit, dressing it up so it looks good, telling you it’s free and then making you pay to get the bad taste out of your mouth.”
Little Johnny got five stars for his assignment.
