That is what is amazing about this country. Despite Obama, you are still free to read into it whatever you want. All I was doing was giving a simple reply to Go Blue. This web site just happens to be the first one on the list when you google Obama phones. Funny how GBF, like you, seems to be unable to lift a finger to perform such a simple task.

Reagan signed the FCC lifeline Program into Law in 1986.

George Bush modernized the program to cell phones. For 20 years the program existed mostly in the poorest parts of America, Appalachis. the Ozarks regions and through the south where the demand on federal aid programs are relied upon the most. Those areas are so impoverished that utility companies refused to lay lines and furnish services with out guranteed compensation.

Reagan stepped in with the lifeline program.

This is hilarious. The 2007-08 economic crash causing massive job losses created a greater need for federal aid which triggered an expansion of the program

So, are you saying that any of this justifies the waste of taxpayer's money to this extent?

Going back would place an additional cost on the program for phone rental. Bad fiscal idea, but typical for Republicans

Nope. Where land lines exist, they would be cheaper.

Barack Carter

This President has no idea what common sense means.

Charles Dharapak/APObamaEnlargeCarterE nlarge

It’s now official: On foreign policy, Barack Obama is worse than Jimmy Carter.

For decades, Carter’s presidency was synonymous with weakness on the world stage. The late 1970’s was the era of double-digit inflation, a worldwide oil crisis, Iranian hostages and Soviet military advances from Latin America to Afghanistan. So pathetic was America’s predicament at the time that the late Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy mounted a primary challenge to Carter from the left.

Obama’s rise to power mirrored his Democratic predecessor’s in many ways. Both men came to office in the wake of widespread public disenchantment with the political establishment, and promoted themselves as outsiders and breaths of fresh air. Both men spoke of surmounting what they portrayed as Americans’ exaggerated anxieties about the dangers hyped by fear-mongering conservatives.

For Carter, in a 1977 commencement speech, it was “our inordinate fear of communism” that Americans needed to overcome. For Obama, in his 2009 Cairo address, it was the “fear” and “mistrust” that had grown between the West and Muslim world in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Both men came into office emphasizing the promotion of human rights as a crucial dimension of American foreign policy. And both men gave the impression that their good intentions would be enough to accomplish these Herculean tasks.

Unfortunately, as is often the case, the reality of the world came crashing down.

That IS one he11 of an idea.

Cell phones enable criminals to enhance their crime: pimps, prostitutes, drugs, theft, breakins, etc etc etc.. A cell phone to a crook is what a Motorola radio is to a COP.

And for practical use, if a phone is for job search a land line works just fine.

Get rid of Government (ObamaPhones).ReaganPhones are just fine.
