Chris Matthews: “I forgot he was black tonight..” WTH??

So tonight during coverage of the State of the Union address Chris Matthews made and astoundingly stupid and racist statement. Will he get called out for his comments or will he be given a pass just like Harry Reid. I’m sure the latter is true since it’s OK to be a racist so long as your liberal. Sad so sad. Why is it we have to be focused on the mans color? Borrowing from Dr. Martin Luther King shouldn’t we be judging him by the content of his character?

Chris Matthews (See Video) : “You know, I was trying to think about who he was tonight, and it’s interesting: He is post-racial by all appearances… You know, I forgot he was black tonight for an hour”

Back room deals: Things you won’t see on the new Obama iPhone app?

» by in: Technology

So the President Obama has a new app that promises:

Today, we’re excited to announce the new White House App available for Apple iPhone and iPod Touch. The White House App delivers dynamic content from WhiteHouse.gov to the palm of your hand.

Image of White House iPhone App showing list of photos and video playerOne feature that stands out is live video streaming. Now anyone with this app can watch the President’s public events at the White House, frequent web chats with Administration officials, and other events like key speeches and press briefings in real time.

In fact, the President’s State of the Union speech next week is a great example. In addition to the millions of Americans watching through TV and websites like WhiteHouse.gov/live, iPhone users on the go will be able to tune in through their phones.

The White House App also lets users stay up to date with the White House Blog and the latest from the Briefing Room. Browse behind-the-scenes photos and watch on-demand videos. The app provides instant access to full videos from recent speeches, press briefings, and special events.

What you won’t see are the back room deals between Democrats, Big Labor and Obama’s cronies. What you won’t see is true transparency. He’s big on talking about transparency but when it comes to actually doing something about it he just votes present.

By the way how much taxpayer money and IT resources where wasted on this obvious propaganda? If Bush did this the liberals around the US would be coming unglued.

Aneesh Chopra gets schooled by the CEA

So apparently Aneesha Chopra took some time away from wasting American taxpayers money on overpriced government technology to visit the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Nothing like a government funded trip to Vegas eh? Any way while he was there getting his butt kissed by the left wing techies and those looking to get their finger the the government pie he was schooled by the president of the Consumer Electronics Association Gary Shapiro.

“When it comes to innovation there’s a lot the government can do, and there’s a lot they should not do,” said consumer industry head Gary Shapiro.

“The government doesn’t spur innovation or entrepreneurship. The government often gets in the way,” said Mr Shapiro, president of the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) which stages CES.

“The government is often a barrier,” said Mr Shapiro. “High taxes and regulatory bureaucracy are barriers.”

Mr Shapiro is right. The government influence and interference in business with unnecessary regulation only stifles innovation. Just think of where we would be if there wasn’t so much interference by the government. On top of that the current administration seeks to punish those who succeed with higher taxes everywhere. After all more taxes is the only way the president can pay for all of his social spending programs. Sadly I doubt this will mean anything but the tech industry needs to wake up and realize that Mr. Obama is not a friend of business nor technology. He is a friend of those who will help him push his socialist agenda.

Berkeley Racism: Considering dropping high school science labs.

Berkeley High School may dump science labs because they favor white kids. I think has to be the most racist thing I’ve ever heard. I was taught and believe with my whole heart that God created us all equal. He did not give any race better knowledge or capability to do anything. It is an absolute insult to the minorities in Berkeley High School that they are considering this. Blacks and Hispanics are not inherently unable to do science labs. If they have a problem with minorities doing well maybe they should look at their racist selves and try identifying what the true root cause of the problem is. They are dumbing down the whole system rather than helping those in need. Sad to see racism is alive doing well in the liberal utopia of Berkeley.

Biden hosts “IP roundtable” big content

So Ars Technica had an article on a recent conference hosted by Vice President Biden. The conference brought together content companies and federal law enforcement to discuss “ways to combat piracy in this rapidly changing technological age”. Interestingly enough no one from the community or academics where invited. It seems every time we hear about the Obama administration and copyright policy we find he is bff with big media. The thing I love is watching all of these Obamaites twist and turn in their seats when they see his love for the RIAA, MPAA and big content. The man knows where his bread is buttered and makes no decisions with out some selfish motivation to benefit him or others close to him.
