“This isnt capitalism, its my childrens future earnings being used to supply adults and other peoples kids with free stuff.”

westytx on Nov 15, 2012 at 22:11:04

“To bad you weren't worried about your children's future back in 2001.

Republicans didn't balance the budget and spent every dime of revenue from 2001 thru 2008 and then BORROWED from communists to leave a national debt of $10.8 Trillion by end of 2008 for your kids to pay off.

And as if that wasn't incompetent enough, the Repubs pushed thru bad legislation and bad wars to create an ANNUAL REOCCURRING Deficit of $1.4Trillion for every president that followed George WMD Bush as a budget starter each year!

And another thing. Why didn't we hear complaints about Bush's Repubs spending $1Trillion of U.S. taxpayer dollars on purple Muslim fingers in Iraq but instead hear complaints about taxpayer dollars being spent on U.S. taxpayers?”

“Im sure hes right. The entire process was a farce and an embarassment to everyone in the country. But what nerve this guy has considering this:

GOP Party Chairman Charlie Webster insisted that he will not release updated results from the additional Maine caucuses despite overwhelming evidence that the wrong person was named the winner.

“No one has access” “There will be no access. We will give it to the committee on March 10 (after Super Tuesday when it doesn’t matter). We are not going to release them (the missing votes). People can whine and complain and plead, but I’m not going to make them public.”

The latest news reports say that some of the DELEGATE elections (in counties where delegates have pledged their support for Ron Paul) have been thrown out and that those caucuses will not have delegates going forward to the state convention.”

Mitt Romney: Obama Won With 'Gifts' To Blacks, Hispanics, Young Voters

Commented Nov 15, 2012 at 16:21:20 in Politics

“This might be the only thing I agree with Romney on. I just found out this week that taxpayers supply cell phones to welfare recipients. The cells phones even come with free airtime. Even more incredible these same people that cant afford cell phones are given the option of UPGRADING their taxpayer funded gifts to SMART PHONES for a fee! If the people cant afford cell phones then wouldnt it be obvious that they couldnt afford smart phone upgrades? and if they could then wouldnt that mean that they could afford a basic cell phone without my childrens assistance? Im doing 6 digits +/- and I own a $20- pay as I go phone. How is this right and why is nobody talking about correcting it?”

proudlyliberal23 on Nov 15, 2012 at 16:50:27

“every thing you need to know the truth... lol.

The president has no direct impact on the program, and one could hardly call these devices "Obama Phones," as the e-mail author does. This specific program, SafeLink, started under President George Bush, with grants from an independent company created under President Bill Clinton, which was a legacy of an act passed under President Franklin Roosevelt, which was influenced by an agreement reached between telecommunications companies and the administration of President Woodrow Wilson.

Wilson Phones, anyone?”

proudlyliberal23 on Nov 15, 2012 at 16:49:05

“more and more fact...

The USF is sustained by contributions from telecommunications companies such as "long distance companies, local telephone companies, wireless telephone companies, paging companies, and payphone providers." The companies often charge customers to fund their contributions in the form of a universal service fee you might see on your monthly phone bill. The fund is then parceled out to companies, such as América Móvil, that create programs, such as SafeLink, to provide telecommunications service to rural areas and low-income households.”

proudlyliberal23 on Nov 15, 2012 at 16:48:31

“here is more fact....

How It Works

SafeLink Wireless, the program mentioned in the e-mail, does indeed offer a cell phone, about one hour’s worth of calling time per month, and other wireless services like voice mail to eligible low-income households. Applicants have to apply and prove that they are either receiving certain types of government benefits, such as Medicaid, or have household incomes at or below 135 percent of the poverty line. Using 2009 poverty guidelines, that’s $14,620 for an individual and a little under $30,000 for a family of four, with slightly higher amounts for Alaska and Hawaii.

SafeLink is run by a subsidiary of América Móvil, the world’s fourth largest wireless company in terms of subscribers, but it is not paid for directly by the company. Nor is it paid for with "tax payer money," as the e-mail claims. Rather, it is funded through the Universal Service Fund, which is administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company, an independent, not-for-profit corporation set up by the Federal Communications Commission.”

proudlyliberal23 on Nov 15, 2012 at 16:47:45

“I just googled it..... You can read full article at factcheck dot org OR any of a few other sites... try it.

Q: Has the Obama administration started a program to use "taxpayer money" to give free cell phones to welfare recipients?

A: No. Low-income households have been eligible for discounted telephone service for more than a decade. But the program is funded by telecom companies, not by taxes, and the president has nothing to do with it.”

proudlyliberal23 on Nov 15, 2012 at 16:45:49

“Do you have a link to this? im serious. I heard about this and i think it makes no sense.. free cell phones?”

westytx on Nov 15, 2012 at 16:26:07

“This "free" government cell phone is the same thing you have....a Walmart $30 phone with Pay as you Go minutes. Oh, and before you complain too loudly, the "free" phones were encouraged by a private enterprise company that is making millions from this. Why are you complaining about capitalism?”

“A couple of times you seemed to have wandered off into right field. And twice you began your reply with “I don’t understand”. So far you haven’t offered anything that id consider intriguing so im not sure what you were expecting. But I think my comments to you would be better described as succinct or concise but not definitely vague. I have a feeling that you are able to read between the lines anyway despite your earlier claims. If not then no harm done but if so then wouldn’t that make you more fitting of at least one of the descriptive that you chose for me?

As for you! You seem to be self enamored and quite full of yourself. I don’t know what experiences your touting or why but if you want to compare accomplishments then im pretty sure I could give you a run for your money!”

I checked over my replies to you, and I have not used the phrase, "I don't understand" in any of them.
AGAIN.
I am waiting for you to answer my question:
Where has there been a successful libertarian society in, let's say, the 20th century?
I believe this is at least the 3rd (or maybe 4th) time I have asked you this question.
The rest of your statement, I believe you must be talking to someone else.
You say "I am full of myself". Why? I simply said I think i have a little more time and experience than you. I am not bragging, only stating a possible fact. I am not even talking about "accomplishments". THAT came out of YOUR boastful mouth.
