Get Your Free Obama Phone!

Just a little Obama redistribution of all those cell phone minutes.  And of course, the cost for the free phones and their subsequent usage is being footed by all those other sucker cell phone users who actually pay for such services.

This giveaway is called the Lifeline Program and supposedly allows the low-income ‘poor’ access to a phone 24/7 for emergency purposes.  With 4 hours of free minutes a month provided with each phone, I think we can safely take a giant leap here and proclaim that 911 ain’t on the speed dial.

The program in Ohio alone cost $26.9 million in the first quarter of 2012, the most recent data available, versus $15.6 million in the same time frame in 2011. Compared to the first quarter of 2011, the number of people in the program nearly doubled to more than a million.

Growth could cost everyone who owns a phone. The program is funded through the “Universal Service Fund” charge on phone bills — usually a dollar or two per bill — and the amount of the fee is determined by the cost of this and other programs.  Dayton Daily News

Let’s see now….your right to free food stamps so you don’t have to fork out your own dough stuffing your gob….your right to free school meals so you don’t get stuck provisioning your own progeny….your right to free internet access so you don’t miss out on the Facebook/Twitter time waster fest….your right to free birth control so you don’t get screwed from all your freelance fucking….your right to free abortions so you don’t get foiled by those feisty fetuses when you’re too fagged out and lazy to use the frickin free birth control….and now, your right to free cell phones so you don’t have to pay for the privilege of phoning your fellow deadbeats.

Gee, free cable TV must surely be on the social justice horizon.  For after all, MSNBC is desperate for more dependently moronic viewers.

    Thanks for laying it out “plain and simple”. Even though these give-aways tick me off, I found myself laughing while reading your post. I haven’t read your blog before, but if this is your usual writing style, I’ll be back. I’m a registered Democrat with a libertarian streak who has been voting Republican since 2008. I will be voting R&R in November.

    • A discerning Democrat. Hooray! Hopefully there are more like you.

        I am probably no longer a Democrat. I just haven’t changed my party affiliation yet. I am sick of them. I am willing to give the Republicans a try, but I have to admit that my patience is wearing thin, and if the Republicans end up being Democrat-lite, then I will abandon them, too. I respect some Republicans at this point in time, especially Sarah Palin, and her Tea Party activism. I have a couple of Democrats that I still like, but I am watching them closely, and beginning to have my doubts about them. You got that Clintons? LOL!

        • I hear you….I’ve just about had it with the Republicans.

            Many people like me have already left the Democrat party to become Independents. I am a gay man who knows of other gay men who were former liberal Democrats who had conservative awakenings. People like you, me, and my friends are the biggest threats to the constantly bitching, never happy leftists among us. It has to be draining carrying all that hate in their hearts. Eventually, some will realize this and change their ways. All the best to you!

            • You’re so right–we are the biggest threat to the Left. Every member of a so-called minority group who turns their back on the Democrat party widens the crack in their very fragile coalition of victim groups.

    Comcast charges us higher rates so they can offer the less fortunate $10.00 a month… Not sure if there are other companies also gouging the folks who work.

    I am so tired of paying for “Obama phones”. Whenever i look at my cell phone bill.. makes me vomit. So what if it’s only $2.00, my bill would have been $2 dollars cheaper if i didn’t have to pay for everyones “free phone”!
