“Sounds like someone's abusing the system.... Mission statement from that site below.
Thanks to the FCC-mandated, government-sponsored program, called LifeLine Assistance, the financially disadvantaged can receive a free government cell phone and up to 250 free minutes every month. An estimated 15 million other Americans already participate, and tens of millions more qualify to enroll. With the economy falling further and further behind, more and more Americans are finding themselves eligible for the Lifeline phone service program.
In the 90′s, the federal government set up the Lifeline phone service program via a mandate by the FCC. This program, funded by Universal Service Fund fees on telephone bills, provides qualified consumers with discounted (often free) monthly telephone service. It began as just a landline program and a few years ago made it’s debut with cell phones. It’s been commonly called the “Obama phone” but that’s an urban legend as free cell phones were added under the Bush Administration.
A short three years later there are an estimated 15 million active owners of free government phones with service provided through this government mandated program, provided mostly by three major mobile phone companies who are backed by large telecommunications companies like Sprint/Nextel, for example. (And the FCC is helping Americans with cheap internet too!)”
“No I would way rather be loosing 750,000 jobs a month. Ya, we were WAY better off under Bush. Oh ya, I loved when my 401k was also 70% down and my house lost 50% in value. That was awesome. OH oh, and the 2 wars that MY generation was asked to fight that that bankrupted the US and killed thousands of GI's. YA, we were WAY better. Give me some more of that!”

“You make me laugh!!!!! At least Bush kept America safe because IT WAS Clinton who let the terrorist push us around that lead to the attacks on 911....
Maybe if Obama spent more time balancing the budget & less time on vacation we'd be better off than we were 4 years ago!!?”
“His tax records will show he paid a penalty under the Tax Amnesty act. He'll never show 2006-2009. He admits to offshore accounts. Even GwBush showed 16 years..... The fact the 5 years of filings is not an option for him, proves he has something to hide. Presidents usaully want to relese them to keep speculation at bay. Obama did, both Bush's, Clinton, Kerry... In a time of "Financial Collapse" I think they should have to.. He won't show us how he managed his millions but he wants to manage ours?”
“The fact that its this big of an issue now, proves that there's something he does not want us voters to know. GOP demanded Obama's Birth Cert. (not to mention they did release it) and a Presidential nominee won't release his "PERSONAL" tax records? They are only asking for the past 5 years too.... Hmmmmm
“99.9% of public business post "NO GUNS ALLOWED" on premiss. So owning a gun, helps you none in this situation. Permit to carry or not.”

“Posting "No guns allowed" does not stop someone from bringing one in. Perhaps we can look forward to entering theaters through metal detectors from here on.”

“I'm shocked that Holmes didn't read the sign and abide by the rules set forth by the management. I'm sure if the rest of America would have strict gun laws as Chicago has, this would never have happened.”

“Really? I live in Los Angeles and patronize many businesses. Offhand, I can't remember ever seeing a sign like that.”
“As a responsable gun owner, this is why I support some form (MORE) gun controll. If the Constitution was writen with AR-15's being sold at a Gander Mountain 2 miles away, I have a hard time believing the 2nd Amdmt. would be written the same.... Nobody buys a gun 2 days before a "Hunting trip" anyway. You have all year to plan a hunting trip or self defence classes or whatever. More waiting periods and tougher evals for "Tactical Arms" is needed in this country! I have bought all my guns (4) and I was supprised how easy it was everytime.... #JustSayin”
