    Here's an interesting article about the free cell phones ... and how we pay for them through the "Federal Universal Service Fee" on all our phone bills. That's $1.35 on my phone bill. I've always wondered what that fee was for. I also pay a "Federal Subscriber Line and Access Recovery Charge" of $6.20 each month. I wonder what the heck that is for?!! The cost for my phone line, itself is only $6.87. Thus the Federal govt is taking as much in "taxes" on my phone line as the actual cost of the service! Does that boggle the mind?

    "Obamaphones" actually should be called "Reaganphones" ... the program began for land lines under Reagan, when people could show "need" due to medical conditions, etc. There are now 12.5 million free cell phones out there. If there are 300 million in our population, that means about 4% of the population have free phones. Of course, if we assume that the population under the age of 5 probably doesn't need one, the %-age would be higher. We might also be able to eliminate all people in prison and in full-care nursing homes.

    An enlightening article:
    http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/...e_at_work.html

    The article also raises the issue of the program soliciting participants with the name of Obama. The article reports that the website "Obamaphone.net" used to lead to the govt website for the program. The "Obamaphone.net" is now being taken down. This even riled a Democrat .. who was solicited for the program even though she is a multimillionaire
    Just how extensively has this program been marketed? Here is how one multimillionaire Democrat Senate from a swing state reports how she became a critic of the program.
    Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., received a mailed solicitation last year informing her she was eligible for a phone, leading her to question the program.

    "I am troubled by the expansive potential for the program to be abused," McCaskill wrote the FCC in December.

    No kidding.

    In some forty odd days, I will go to the polls, not vote early, nor absentee. I'll show my ID, sign my name and cast my vote.

    I believe if you can't make your way to your polling place on the day of voting, your vote should not be counted. This goes for everyone. Early...absentee...military... One man, one vote. Too many exceptions are made.

    Efforts at restricting voting are being made...they can be overcome.

    It's your choice. Show up, or shut up. JD
    Question for you then! I work for an airline and I already know I am going to be out of town for 3 days during the election, so should I not be allowed to vote? I mean I do already know how my state results are already going to turn out, but I would still like to cast my vote.

    oh, you work? well if one person running does not care about a, what was it now 47% I guess that by default you are in the 53% that the incumbent cares not about. must be that only those sitting at home sucking off of the government nipple. talking on the free telephone while watching the view, need to vote. silly me

    Wow! Even Military huh? Have you ever served in the Military? If so, have you ever been deployed to a war zone?

    Yes sir Ken sad to say I am one of the idiots in the 53% that actually works! Guess because I will be out of town during the elcetion I shouldn't be allowed to vote either... Like Brian said, even the poor millitary I guess shouldn't be allowed to vote!?!? I noticed he even said "one man one vote", I guess he doesn't even want to women to vote, WOW! I learn something new everyday I guess.
