What I want to know is why does everyone have a cell phone? We can't afford to have one. I have seem women with their kids in foster care living off the state and they always have them and talk about how high their bills are yet in another breath they say they can't feed their kids. People that have them can't seem to leave them at home or put them away for more than 10 minutes. Why is it that some dumb freak invents something like a TV or computer and if your don't have one you are considered weird. Strange world we live in. I have a friend who has to take her grandchild to therapy to learn to use a pencil and she tells me the lobby is full of kids who can color, but know how to use a mouse.

I remember growing up not having a cell phone. Those were the days. I disconnected my land line and am using cell phones in my home.

We use a land line and are very happy with it. It is also very affordable. I was listening to a young girl talk in the grocery store about how they can hardly eat while her kid was looking at the internet. Funny times we live in.

I have my reasons for having a cell phone, but then again my family eats, my bills are paid, and I work for what I have. So, in short, my money is mine to do as I need or wish. *shrug*

It was in the daily quill about two weeks ago that if you meet certain income guidelines you can get a free cell phone. So working people keep on working. Pay for your bills and someone elses.

There is no way to explain it to you Hot Dog if you don't get it. Seriously...that is about as clear as it can be.
As far as people spending on misplaced priorities...nothing new. You can say the same thing about paying for satellite tv, eating out, buying guns, giving to the church, etc.
Basically, any single thing that money goes to outside of the basics, when you are having a hard time covering the basics, is wrong. Don't single out cell phones.

I read about that in a magazine. It makes me sick. Just remember folks keep your jobs and work hard cause lots of people on welfare and food stamps are depending on you!!!!!!!!!

You are full of hot air. Church is not outside of basics but included in it.

Wake up people! The government gives away free cell phones so the population gets brain cancer. It's all about the elitists wanting power over the rest of us and reducing the population. Stay away from the city water and vaccines. These are other methods used by the Globalists to reduce the population by putting cancer causing agents in them. Hard to believe? I agree, but it's TRUE!
