And actually most of your post appears to be true, except for the "Obamaphone" title. The program began under Reagan, I believe, to provide phone service to those that can't afford it.
You call it "Obamaphone" to falsely intimate that Obama started some new kind of give-a-way to "buy" voters, which isn't true.
At the time Obama took office, the program had approx 200,000 subscribers.

In May, 2011, the program had 4,000,000 subscribers. By my calculator, that is a growth of 2,000%.

What a shame Obama can't even claim a 1% growth rate on JOBS.

So from 1989 through 2008 we handed out 200,000 of these phones. But from 2008-today the number is somewhere around 3,800,000? Either someone was working really really hard to make this program better known or the number of those who qualify for these phones has increased drastically since BHO took office. Either way does not make very good PR.

Thank you whoever pointed out that that post was from Schmahl. It indeed was.
Consistent is a good example of everything wrong with Topix. Rather than posting facts, Consistent posts insults interlaced with a few ultra right wing talking points but is incapable of arguing or debating a point.
CRASSUS is another great example of everything wrong with Topix. Because registration isn't required, CRASSUS can post things that he wouldn't dream of saying otherwise. Anyone who is NOT a racist will likely leave Topix after seeing a few CRASSUS posts.
Still another great example of why people don't stick around Topix is Smart Liberal, who takes the attitude that there is nothing wrong with posting crap that he KNOWS not to be try. When half the topics here are completely untrue, reasonable people leave.
So who do you have left? 95% of the posts on the Minneapolis forum are made by less than a dozen individuals posting under multiple monikers using proxy servers to vary there locations.
There really are no moderates left on Topix - most of the 12 remaining posters are right wing extremists with a few pissed off liberals devoting their time to debunking the same conservative lies over and over again.
Excellent Post!

Bravo. That's a very good description of the current state of Topix. Irish still trying to make "Obamaphones" relevant. Racist CRASSUS fictional threads about a gym that doesn't exist. Consistent typing the same comments over and over and slipping in some "k's" to make it more profound. Really sad stuff.

I am just going to sit back and read you childrens post about those of us that make you "Feel" bad because you have NEVER been able to articulate a thought of your own, and the Adults do not let you spew Propaganda from the back of your Demokrat Kool Aid Packages without pointing out what idiots you are.

What a lying POS you are! Everything you post is lie!

Your figures are completely made up.

"There are 17 million households currently signed up for the program, up from under 7 million just four years ago."

http://money.cnn.com/2012/10/26/technology/mo...

And the total number of jobs on Obama's watch IS up well more than than one percent.

What a lying azzhole.

Barry Soretto Math for the Sheeple.

Barry destroy 5 jobs, and the Republican Governors add 4 jobs in spite of the Forced Collectivization and Planned Economic Destruction by the Demokratista's, and Your Messiah is a Job Creator......Why are the Sheeple called Sheeple?

In typical fashion, the African American rewrites history to avoid the awful truth of their failures.

You are using the number for the entire program, not the cell phone program. I did not mention land lines, did I? I spoke only of the cell phones.

In 2008, Safelink had 200,000 subscribers. As of May, 2011, Safelink had 4,000,000 subscribers.

As for your claim that Obama has increased jobs, let's see your numbers.

Comparison to January 2009-Obamaís inauguration date: In January 2009, the labor force stood at 154.185. This means that a net 302,000 people have left the labor force since Obama was inaugurated. Concurrently, the size of the working age population grew over 5.7 million from 234.739 million at the time Obama was sworn in. Also, in January 2009, 142.201 million were employed, over 1.62 million more than today. So we have a larger population, a smaller workforce (resulting from discouraged workers), and more unemployed. As AEIís James Pethokoukis points out, if the labor force was the same size as when Obama took office, the U3 rate would be 11%.

http://www.redstate.com/dhorowitz3/2011/12/02...

The statement above is backed up by the Bureau of Labor Statistics Employment Situation Summary dated Nov 2, 2012.

"The civilian labor force rose by 578,000 to 155.6 million in October, and the labor force participation rate edged up to 63.8 percent."

From the same Employment Situation Report dated February 6, 2009:

"Civilian labor force ....154,860,000

http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.nr0.ht...

Do the math. It works out to less than 1/2 of 1%.

AND that does not factor in the growth in population over the past 4 years. While population growth has slowed, it is still running upwards of 1% per year. When you bring the population growth into the equation, you have a negative growth factor.

Like I said above, now let's see your numbers - and your links to the BLS statistics that back them up. Citing blogs in the Huffington Post won't cut it for proof.

Yawn. How many times have you posted basically this same thing? One million? Two million?
