    Unhappy Govt Supplying Free Cell Phones

    Heard a segment on our local 6 PM news station that the Government is supplying free cell phones to those who can't afford to pay for it themselves. What's next free Plasma TV"s and free cable service? Don't know about you but I'm tired of providing these Slugs with free everything. Why don't they get a job and pay for it themselves just like we do. The closer this country moves toward Socialism the more absurd it gets.

    I can understand food stamps but not cell phones. Cell phones are not a necessity. I still do not believe we are heading toward Socialism though not any moreso than the last administration. Health care must be addressed.

    Health Care will be addressed by taxing those who work while Slugs on welfare continue to be a burden on society. Free call phones? When is enough enough? Not to mention illegal aliens. What don't Democrats understand about illegal?

    No proposal supported by either party supports health care for illegal aliens. Neither do I. The cell phone story sounds very fishy. What network are you listening to---FOX?

    Where did you hear this? I'd like to look into it and write the bozos who approved this, if it's true.

    This is a program that apparently exists in 17 states. It s sponsored by a Florida company called TracFone and is funded through a Federal communications surcharge that has existed for 25 years to support rural telephone services for low income families. See, for example, http://news.cincinnati.com/apps/pbcs...IZ01/908170304.

    Yeah, I did a little search and found the links. Sounds like BS to me. We have more pressing issues than giving free cell phones out.

    Why the hell you should be on disability and receive taxpayer money for a disease that you CHOSE to put yourself at serious risk for? Warnings have been mandated on cigarettes since 1965. They have been sufficiently warned and therefore, the taxpayers should bear no responsibility for their idiotic choices.
