Default NEXT government FREEBIE

IMHO the next freebie, to compliment the FREE CELL PHONE will be FREE INTERNET ACCESS and CABLE TV.

we're going to be bombarded with guilt-inducing rhetoric that is going to tell us how many "poor" homes are without internet access and this is another way that THE MAN keeps people in the 47% grouping and it is another way leave so many chill'n behind their 53% contemporaries.

get ready to open up your wallets. again.

because you are privilaged enough to afford the damn thing!
if it's given to you it must be your God given right to have it.

for the life of me i cannot figure out how people who now have free cell phones got along without one before. and we can all see the immediate impact this has had on helping people extract themselves from a life of poverty. would like the guberment to tell me how man jobs those phones helped people obtain.

Next idiot i hear say they deserve free internet, i will calmly point in the direction of the nearest public library. As for the free phones, that is a total bullshit waste of money that needs to get scrapped. You don't need a phone. It's merely a convenience. I mean what the hell did people do 20 year ago when cell phones didn't exist? I am so tired of people asking for handouts that have absolutely no need for them.

Know what's even worse than that?

I received an advertisement in the mail from a "budget" cell phone provider for a free phone under that government program.

Wtf.

this is where the word "NEED" has replaced the word "WANT"
it just grinds my a*s standing in the store listening to one consumer tell the other "and i NEED a new 64" flat screen tv"
