Being the genius you are please tell us why the government should be providing cell phones to anyone. So they can be advised when they have to sign up for food stamps? So they can be advised as to when the deadline for seeking a rent subsidy is due. What 10 years ago or so most of us survived without a cell phone. Why is it different now? Why in the hell should the government be providing a cell phone for anyone?

It's OK mental midget, just reminding you of how desperately terrified you were of Lily the other day...clutching your pearls and crying in that shrill and whinny manner about her discourse being indecent.
As for a sense of humor, we regular Americans find you reichtard Tea Turd Birfers hilariously funny, albeit a little too predictable.

People don't care. They just wanted a black president. Period.
You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.
They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.

Topic Reminder Service (TRS) is a publicly-funded non-political organization founded to update Forum Users with accurate factual reminders. This particular Topic could be - indeed has been - deemed out-of-date or "dead" since November 4th, 2008. However, persuant of common OPINION, it has remained one of the more-popular Topix to this day. At this point in time, over four years after the topic's origin and considering none of the facts will change for another four years (making for an estimated eight-year lifecycle), TRS is presenting the following reminders of FACT-

Barack Hussein Obama II is the 44th and current President of the United States. He is the first African American to hold the office. Obama is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he was president of the Harvard Law Review.

Born in Honolulu, Hawaii USA on August 4, 1961, he served three terms representing the 13th District in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004, running unsuccessfully for the United States House of Representatives in 2000.

He began his first presidential campaign in 2007, defeating Republican nominee John McCain in the general election, and was inaugurated as president on January 20, 2009. Nine months later, Obama was named the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

Obama was re-elected president in November 2012, defeating Republican nominee Mitt Romney. He is the first two-term Democrat POTUS since Franklin D. Roosevelt to win two presidential elections with a majority of the popular vote. During his second inaugural address on January 21, 2013, Obama called for full equality for gays: "Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law- for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well."

On February 17, 2009, Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, a $787,000,000,000 economic stimulus package aimed at helping the economy recover from the deepening worldwide recession, thereby continuing an economic aid policy first instituted under the preceding (Republican) President George W. Bush.

Domestic policy items include the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act AKA Obama Care, signed into law on March 23, 2010. Barack Obama appointed two women to serve on the Supreme Court in the first two years of his Presidency. Sonia Sotomayor, nominated by Obama on May 26, 2009, was confirmed on August 6, 2009, becoming the first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice. Elena Kagan, nominated by Obama on May 10, 2010, was confirmed on August 5, 2010, bringing the number of women sitting simultaneously on the Court to three, for the first time in American history.

On January 16, 2013 President Obama outlined a series of sweeping gun control proposals, urging Congress to reintroduce an expired ban on "military-style" assault weapons, impose limits on ammunition magazines to 10 rounds, introduce background checks on all gun sales, pass a ban on possession and sale of armor-piercing bullets, as well as additional measures.

Notable foreign policy items include the draw-down of troops in Afghanistan and the end of military operations in Iraq as of August 31, 2010. On March 16, 2011, he authorized the U.S. Military to engage in air strikes against Libya's governmental air defense capabilities in order to protect civilians and enforce a no-fly zone. On May 1, 2011, Obama authorized a "surgical raid" by United States Navy SEALs in Abbottabad, Pakistan, resulting in the death of international terrorist and al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and the seizure of papers, computer drives and disks from bin Laden's compound.

I'm sure that as soon as the GOP state legislature there finishes the most important business of banning all abortions, they may make some investments in infrastructure. You may even see a toilet in your future!

Why are you talking about Mississippi and degrading it?

Are you confused like the unamerican Boy Messiah who thinks we have 58 States(at least!)??

You should invest in some infrastructure, boy. Get a backbone installed and a boner that works.

Yes, I see a toilet in my future and you are in it!

Difference is we don't currently have an oil man as POTUS and Vice President.
Where was the Tea Party when Republicans controlled Congress and pissed away a budget surplus?
Difference is you have Obama the inexperienced, financially unqualified community organzier who hasn't a clue about the economy or the national debt...and his sidekick, Tonto Biden.

<quoted text>The reason the cellphones were used (BO, before Obama) was that they were to be cheaper than landlines, but I don't know how those costs may have changed over the years. I agree with Homer: ALL government costs should be constantly regulated for cost effectiveness, not just programs for the poor...I don't think Congressional salaries and perks are in line with the quality of the product.(I wonder if I could win a class action suit with all the citizens in my district against John Boehner for fraud/breech of contract/failure to perform..?

Hey grammar and spelling expert, did you mean 'BREACH' of contract, rather than 'BREECH' of contract?
Have another question for you, Why in the hell should the government provide free phones of any kind for anyone?
