More wasted money by a guy who couldn't run a variety store. Kids spends to much on the computer as it is. How about getting kids out doors for once and speding time hiking,hunting, and fishing.

Obama and other Marxist Democrats want more kids on the Internet because the opinions expressed by kids most closely resemble the philosophy and stagnant emotional development of voting Democrats.

Kids do need to do more physical exercise for their own well being. They also must stay as technologically up to date as possible. You just couldn't pass up the chance to berate the greatest President of our generation. If you doubt this then please note how he intends to achieve this noble effort without tax payer's money. Hiking, hunting and fishing, man those hobbies went out with Duck Dynasty.

You don't need tax payers money to enjoy the outdoors and learn about the enviornment and a matter of fact the money spent on doing these outdoor activities go towards keeping future generations to enjor. Obama wants the government to raise our kids.

And after the wires are connected and the computers are purchased, WHO is going to be held accountable, month after month, year after year, to PAY for the Internet Service Provider (ISP) who GETS them to the internet??

Who will replace the computers down the line as new technology makes old computers obsolete?

Who will MAINTAIN the computers to keep them up and running?

This is like GIVING someone a free house and EXPECTING them to come up with the property taxes and maintenance that they have no money to pay.

That's the easy rationale for you.

Just explain the reason for this reality... Democrats for decades have promoted and assessed themselves as the Party representing and embracing the needs and aspirations of the common American citizen and consumer. For those same decades, Democrats have been repeatedly in position to protect the real economic interests of American consumers, with total control of both Houses of Congress and the Presidency. Yet, during Democrat tenure, laws have been passed allowing extreme outsourcing (started by Democrats and Marxist Hollywood.) During Democrat tenure, laws have been passed abandoning protection against usury and have actually increased usurious rates and economic slavery of the American consumer. Still, during Democrat tenure, private property rights of the American citizen have been damaged. Further, during Democrat tenure, more and more control of the most rudimentary aspects of citizen's private lives and rights have been abrogated. During Democrat tenure, laws threatening the very foundation of a free people have been made permanent (Patriot Act, etc.) Harming of small business options, nationalization and centralization of indoctrinating educational process, sales to foreign interests of basic consumer utilities America's own fathers paid to build, militarization of police forces, increased access to illegal drugs, astronomically increased sexual perversion and laxity of any laws dealing with it, increased illegal immigration... all these and many more detriments to American citizenry accomplished, expanded and solidified during times your Democrats have been in full power and capable of actually seeing to the interests of our citizenry. Sooner, or later, you need to ask yourself what has happened to your Party of the People, as the same Communist ideas embraced by the killer of JFK have continued to erode every aspect of American stability. The Marxist control of the Democrat Party has resulted in a total failure of American culture and their promise is total tyranny to deal with it, like the moronic, drugged children they are.
