Transparency Updates

In the great tradition of Orwellian doublespeak the Obama administration means by transparency their intention to allow as little public access to information as they possibly can. Since the election I have posted a number of Transparency Updates that call attention to actions bringing about this grand design. Here with links to all of them are these updates. The obvious subtitle is The Growing Destruction of America's Democratic Republic Ideal.

I find the last link especially interesting since it is a list of ordinary records that have been routinely released to the public. Team Obama has promised to release these, such things as college transcripts, medical records, Bar Association records and records of his service as a state senator. None of these as well as other records have yet been released to the public. In spite of high faluttin' rhetoric about transparency the actual record is one of broken promises and general with holding of information from the public. Are they trying to hide something? Or are they trying to hide a whole lot of things? The dinosaur media have never pressed their perceived boss about any of this: they have not done their job as journalists.
