The Events that Happened During the Presidential Term of Barack Obama


In a statement released Monday from the white house, it seems President Obama will crack down on document control. The President cited messy desktops, cluttered inboxes, and wasted hours of trying to search for documents as the reason for this change.

Many Americans believe the change will greatly reduce clutter, and make locating documents much easier. Americans, who oppose this ‘radical’ change, state that it is a direct compromise of every American’s right to a bare or messy desktop.

“I can’t believe the government is trying to pull something like this,” said Bud Amarillo, Texas native. “I have been finding documents on my computer perfectly fine for years.”

The President plans to implement the Document Control Act, sometime later on this year. The document control software is very easy to use, and should help many Americans find their documents quicker.

The act is not only supposed to help the average American remain organized but also reduce the time businesses spend on trying to find documents.

“It’s quite embarrassing, when you can’t find an important document,” said Florida business owner, Ned Hudson. “We’ve spent hours on end searching for documents that we may have lost, it’s very frustrating. Hopefully, this software will help with that.”

People opposed to the change say that the time saved compared to the cost will be negligible. However, this is highly unlikely as the cost to implement this change is completely free.

Due to the easier access to documents, congress will be able to vote on bills sooner. Thus making it much easier to pass bills, and acts. Economic analysts even predict this will help create jobs in the future, help reduce government spending, and eventually bring an end to terrorism. Yet, despite all the good this will bring there are still people who oppose the act.

“I understand this will do some good, but how come the government thinks they can change everything?” said Ray Pickens, from Bozeman, Montana. “First it’s our documents, next thing you know we won’t be able make our own venison jerky.”

The act should be effective sometime in 2012, and it should give every American the chance at finding documents easily and quickly.

“This will save the average person at least 1 hour per day,” said Andrew Jenkins, Document Control Specialist. “It should save businesses close to 30 hours of time a week. People won’t have to look through cluttered inboxes and folders filled with similar word documents.”

Although this technology is easy to use, a concern that experts have is how the older generations will respond to this change, and if they will be able to keep up with the change.

“We are worried about older generations not being able to keep up with this software but it is so easy to use that everyone, young or old should be able to catch on,” said Jenkins.

Local libraries and recreation centers are supposed to be offering courses for people who need help with the new software. Please contact your local government for more instructions.
