  • Obama Phone

    -Copy of an email i got today-

    What the hell kind of a Congress do we have???????

    This is getting to be way too much to swallow. How can one get into that league of freebies? And where are our elected ones, that allow it. Read on,



    The Obama Phone -



    NO JOKE
    This is unbelievable !!



    Just when you think you've heard it all, our illustrious Congress quietly comes up with a new zinger to put their hands in your pockets, and pick them while you aren't watching. Isn't this just wonderful ?


    I was standing in line at the checkout counter at Wal Mart and as I looked at the line behind me, I saw a couple of people talking about what looked like identical new cell phones, bragging about the fact that their phones were free and so was the airtime.

    The woman in line behind me had heard the same exchange and turned to the young man behind her and asked, 'Is that a new type of cell phone?' The young man replied, 'Yes, this is my new Obama phone. She asked him what an Obama phone was, and he went on to say that, 'Welfare recipients are now eligible to receive what he described as (1) a FREE new cell phone, and (2) approximately 70 FREE minutes of air time every month.'

    Needless to say, I was a little skeptical about his answer, so when I got back home, I Googled it, and lo and behold, he was telling the truth. This was what I discovered:

    SafeLink Wireless is a government supported program that provides a free cell phone and airtime each month for income-eligible customers. In other words, your tax dollars are being distributed to a wireless phone provider to provide welfare recipients with free cell phones and airtime. I don't know about you, but as for me, enough is enough. We are $14 Trillion in debt, Congress is balking at continuing unemployment payments to those who want to work, and Congress is increasing the dole-out to dead beats.

    Just have a barf bag ready.

    Cell phone companies have been doing this for years.
    This show is awesome, wrapped in supercool and smothered in bitchin. The only way it could be cooler is if he was riding a unicorn or something.

      They call it the Obama phone, and yet this whole article is about Congress.

        If you think that is something answer a few calls were some body stole their "Obama phone," ate their cookie they "purchased" with their "food stamp card." Yes that damm food stamp cookie their sibling "stole and ate" from their book bag was worthy of a call for police services. I wanted to tell the SOB I'll buy him another damm cookie next month when I put some more money on his food stamp card. Oh and you're not a as good of a son or daughter if you don't "buy" your mother as much food with "your food stamp card" as they do. Dammit they worked hard for those benefits!
        ...And if that Obama phone didn't arrive when the "mail lady" said it did then, "some one stole my phone out the mail box!" Yet the rest of his mail was in the box and nobody seen anybody go into his mail box. I called the phone company and learned they never sent the phone. That SOB was to lazy to do it himself. It was either that, do a report on it and follow up on it. Or! Do nothing, get a complaint filed, answer a bunch of questions and then do a report.

              Or in this case, never let a chance to blame obama go to waste. You can never waste an opportunity to do that. It's a good tactic to throw as much crap at him as possible. Some sticks as we saw happen to a previous President.

                As to the whole phone thing, the feds do pay for a portion of that. But a lot of it is directly funded by the states. Just another taxpayer funded entitlement program.

                  That e-mail has been circulating for years. I think this program started under Bush.

                      Nothing worse than being at the grocery store. I'm living on franks & beans and a family of four adults all living under the same roof are buying T-Bone steaks etc. A lot are getting $600 mth on bridge card. (oh and they work like a debit card. we had a guy use his to post bond to get out of jail). In the meantime I'm being reminded daily by the news how as a public employee I'm raping the system and driving it into bankruptcy.

                        I have no doubt that our welfare programs are too generous and give money to many people who do not deserve it.

                              Having a cell phone is a right guaranteed by the natural laws of welfare.
