Marxist Hacker 42's Journal: Obamaspeak is almost as good as Newspeak 5

Journal by Marxist Hacker 42

From a CNN news alert in my e-mail:

Obama said he was ordering changes that will end the bulk collection of metadata "as it currently exists, and establish a mechanism that preserves the capabilities we need without the government holding this bulk metadata."

In other words, we're still listening, but we want to outsource our data retention costs back to the phone companies.

Obamaspeak is almost as good as Newspeak

  • I sincerely doubt he means anything he ever says past the end of the speech at hand.
    If it turned out that Obama basically viewed himself as an actor, just doing this here "Presidential role" thingy, it would explain much.
    • Yes, it would explain that he is following the footsteps of his predecessors, including your idol Saint Ronnie. Now, you wanna tell us something new and different about the man? Or shall we continue to read the ongoing parroting of shallow punditry?

      • Your Ronnie animus is amusing. I'm moving toward hardly feeling a thing about any of our political class, even the ones I nominally agree with.
        • Naahh, you're just being a sore loser. Your tea party faves are all part of the 'political' class also. And it doesn't matter anyway, since they all serve the 'financial' class that patronizes them.
