And you wonder what the problem is?
Good morning and welcome to the work week for those of you who still consider work to be an obligation and who still have employment.
I had heard of it but only in passing. Now I know it is true. Yep, the federal government spent $2.2 billion dollars last year on the Lifeline subsidy to provide cell phones to low income individuals. That's right, poor people need cell phones too so why not spend billions to provide them. Apparently cell phones are considered as essential as food and shelter. But why stop there? Isn't transportation necessary? Why not cars too? Have the poor go down to their local GM or Chrysler dealer (government owned you see?) and pick out some nice shiny new buggy and drive her home at taxpayers' expense.There is no difference here.
I am sick and tired of hearing about "the poor" and how mistreated they are and how we have so much more to do. Pssshaw! I remember a few years back when Michelle Obama went to a homeless shelter for Thanksgiving and helped serve the meal. A number of homeless folks were snapping her picture with cell phones far better than the one I have. I thought to myself, what have we to be ashamed of when poor people have a better phone than I do?
Now you know where they got those phones. Go back to work and pay up sucker. It is not your money, you did not build that, and you have benefited from a system that is unfair.
H.L. Menchen said "Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want and deserve to get it good and hard." And after electing Obama twice, that is exactly what we are going to get. Go back to work, shut your mouth and remember that your society is now being shaped by the likes of Herbert Marcuse and Karl Marx. Have a good day comrade!
