It seems the time for Big Government telling us what to do is over! That’s right, at Change.gov, you can go in and put up an idea you want to be a part of Obama’s new mandate of change! Wow! Ain’t that just grand. Government listening to “the people”. What a concept.
let’s see how that works.
Up until Sunday Nov. 30th, there seemed to be a suggestion that was leading the pack; Create a new investigation into what happened on Sept. 11th 2001. Well, ok, the people clearly have spoken. At the time this image was taken of the vote box for this topic, it had received 660 votes at Change.gov’s site (right now the Leading suggestion has 388 votes) almost double the 2nd place suggestion.
So how is that “New 9/11 investigation” suggestion doing now in the polls?
Hard to say, because “Change You Can Believe In” removed it from consideration.
That’s right. Obama’s administration is going to listen to the will of the people, and then, by God, they are going to erase the will of the people. The one time leading suggestion on Change.gov is gone. They deleted it.
You know what else they deleted? “Bring our Troops Home”.
Yeah, they got rid of that one as well. Nice huh?
Now, to be fair, they did recently give a statement as to why they removed the leading suggestion from “the people”:
“this is unfortunately outside the scope of the Ideas for Change in America project, which aims to offer specific policy solutions rather than investigations into past government action.”
Yet, as Victronix at 9/11 Blogger points out, they still have another one up, that is doing kinda well in the voting and it is specifically about “investigations into past government action”.
You can’t make this stuff up.
You know, it would be almost funny if what we were talking about here wasn’t a terrorist act that killed nearly 3,000 people and serves as the basis for an endless fascist Global War on Terror. Not to mention the destruction of the US Constitution and our most basic civil liberties.
You know what they keep on the “Featured Suggestion” page? A suggestion to create a school were we can learn to serve our community like that mandatory Civilian Corps Sevice project of theirs.
Wow, I guess they do have their finger on the pulse of the nation, don’t they?
Thanks to 9/11 Blogger for keeping track of this.
President-elect Obama has championed the creation of a more open, transparent, and participatory government. To that end, Change.gov adopted a new copyright policy this weekend. In an effort to create a vibrant and open public conversation about the Obama-Biden Transition Project, all website content now falls under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License:
“Except where otherwise noted, content on this site is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License. Content includes all materials posted by the Obama-Biden Transition project. Visitors to this website agree to grant a non-exclusive, irrevocable, royalty-free license to the rest of the world for their submissions to Change.gov under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License.”
Copyright Professor and blogger James Grimmelmann explains what this means:
“Talk about doing the right thing. Now the collaborative power of Change.gov isn’t limited by what the transition team itself is able to enable. Anyone can take the policy points and discussions from the site and create their own remix or branch of it. This is a very good sign of the transition team’s attitude towards their task. It’s also a good license choice. Attribution 3.0 is the Barack Obama of CC licenses: modern, dignified, generous, and tolerant.”***********************************
Ideas for change
Wars of lies and criminal false flag attacks are off limits in Obama World ™The top rated idea is the Dream Act (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act), a bipartisan legislation that would permit a select group of undocumented students conditional legal status and eventual citizenship.
Appealing to the open borders and amnesty crowd.
Number 2 is Legalize the Medicinal and Recreational Use of Marijuana.
Another idea is End the War on Drugs
A token idea for the youth that voted for Obama.
Appoint a scientist to head NIST immediately
Comments about the NIST scam report on WTC7 are still available. We'll see for how long.
Get FISA Right, repeal the PATRIOT Act, and restore our civil liberties
I doubt if the team is listening.
Go through the rest. I don't see a lot of the good ideas ever seeing the light of day.
