You know a leftie like Obama is in hot water when sycophants like Tingles Matthews, Maureen Dowdy, and the editorial lackeys at the New York Times begin to carp. Of course, that posse of progressive punditry is not really as exercised over Barry’s inane policies (or lack thereof) as they are over the excessive amount of time he’s spent bogeying the back nine when he could have been back in the Oval Office with his brat pack of latter-day Bolsheviks devising more ways to screw up the country and the world.
What does interest Obama is celebrity: His own, and that of others … He likes intimate gatherings of rich and famous people, people who enjoy notoriety—though not nearly as much as he—people of means, people of uniform opinion on the state of the world, the economy, and, most importantly, the state of Barack Obama… (1,461 Days of Summer: Obama’s endless second-term vacation)

The National Science Foundation is financing the creation of a web service that will monitor “suspicious memes” and what it considers “false and misleading ideas,” with a major focus on political activity online.
“…we will create a web service open to the public for monitoring trends, bursts, and suspicious memes. This service could mitigate the diffusion of false and misleading ideas, detect hate speech and subversive propaganda, and assist in the preservation of open debate.”
“False and misleading ideas”? “Subversive propaganda”? Who’s going to define those terms? What’s “misleading”? What’s “subversive”? Subversive to who? Or what? There’s a reason the First Amendment is so unambiguous. It’s to keep tyrants like these people from inflicting their views on the rest of us and preventing others from freely expressing themselves.

It’s hard to get rid of pests like this once they’ve established a colony in your kitchen. And once you do, you’ve got to seal up the cracks and crevices in your walls and stopper all your leaky pipes so they don’t return. A prudent homeowner won’t mistake a cockroach for a cricket.
