WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is calling digital security a top priority, whether it's guarding the computer systems that keep the lights on in the city and direct airliners to the right runway or those protecting customers who pay their bills online.OK, I am not going into instant *They are out to get us* mode, I don't have to. The federal government KNOWS what WE say on our blogs. The know what we are communicating between one another in our emails. It's already a done deal, Obama just wants MORE of it! And there is not too terribly much we can do about it, other than to keep on telling it like it is and let Obama and Company know, we're NOT backing down and we DO have you outnumbered.
To oversee an enhanced security system for the nation's computer networks, Obama is creating a "cyber czar" as part of a long-awaited plan stemming from a review he ordered shortly after taking office.
On Friday, Obama is expected to lay out broad goals for dealing with cyber threats while depicting the U.S. as a digital nation that needs to provide the education required to keep pace with technology and attract and retain a cyber-savvy work force. He also is expected to call for a new education campaign to raise public awareness of the challenges and threats related to cyber security.
The review, however, will not dictate how the government or private industry should tighten digital defenses. Critics say the cyber czar will not have sufficient budgetary and policy-making authority over securing computer systems and spending.

Obama calling for better security for computers
To bring up another matter. Look closely at this picture. It is taken from the original story.
Look at his face, an expression of total disgust, disdain, whatever it may be, the eyes nearly closed so he doesn't actually have to look at the Marine. He has NO respect for that Marine, he is only going through the motions, and it pains him greatly to do so. It is MY opinion that Obama is giving a very weak salute simply because he saw George Bush return salutes. George Bush was a military officer, a salute means something to him. Obama HATES the military, he never was a member OF the military and his displeasure is obvious! OK, I got that out of my system.
Back on topic: Obama wants to strengthen the security of the web?? Obama wants to eventually exercise control over everything ON the web. So, how about we try this? Better security on our southern border too? Oh, wait, that won't give Obama any real control over the American people and it may anger some of his future voting base.
Make no mistake about it, this individual never does anything without an ulterior motive, and now they can go ahead and place me on that Domestic Terrorists watch list!
