If these are the phones I am thinking about, ones the government is payiny for, then they are not free !!!!! We the people who works and pays our way in society is paying a fee on our monthly land line, called "universal service fee of over three dollars a month" pays for them!!! You folks that portray yourselves as community minded, are making a profit on each phone that is given to the people who qualify ( working folks need not apply). How many more hand outs can we the working folks afford for those expects everything to be furnished to them without having to put out an effort to work for things the either want or need ????

I don't care who started it, I don't owe these people a dime, maybe all of you people who think everyone should be given everything thier little hearts desire free from the goverment should draw out all of the money you may have in various accounts and donate all of it to the cause.

Some people need a heart! There are many good people that need help!!! And for you to judge is not right! God gave us all a heart and compassion, too bad yours has been lost!! True, there are people who abuse the "benefits" they recieve, but there are alot who don't, alot that REALLY do have to have help...especially in this part of the country. You can act like it's coming out of your pocket all you want, but if it weren't being taken from you for that, rest assured, there would be something else that it would get taken for!! And you may want to keep in mind, someday, that could be you or your family that is needing help...and I really hope that people won't make you feel bad or ashamed for needing it! I work everyday, and yes, I pay taxes, and you know what, I would give even more of my paycheck to help people in need..sure, I need it for bills and groceries the same as everyone else, but others are just as important to me. I care about people, I want everyone to be able to afford things they'd like to have. And not ALL of them are able to work for it. So, while you're busy judging these people, you might want to stop a minute and ask yourself this: What would God think of me for being so selfish? Or ask yourself this one: What if I were in their position? And trust me, the way you treat others will come back to haunt you...so open your eyes, or better yet, your heart!!!

Must be a liberal Democrat, feel free to give everything you have to anyone on the planet, just don,t expect people to work for thier families and keep handing over more and more because some do gooder thinks people needs a phone or what every cock and bull thing they come up with next!!!! You spoke of judging people, obviously you have judged me and have not a clue of my situation...
People need a bunch of things in life and a telephone is not a need, but food and shelter surely is. I don,t begrudge anyone who is truly needy getting any and all of the assistance they requiire, but our Country has fallen for the sorry lowdowns, and those who wouldn't work tasting pies in a pie factory for someone in need..
As a footnote I truly don't care what you think, but respect your right to have any opinon you please.

I use to think like you then i grew up, I worked all my life and fought in wars to keep us all free and for fools like you to be able to have a freedom to say any ol dumbass thing you want without going to prison, well was i a fool to risk my life so you could be free. I hope you loose your job and loose everything you have ever worked for and end up standing in line yourself for a phone or for food to feed your children. I am sadden that there is people like you in our country that hate people that need help and the funny part is that karma will bite you in the ass. Hope to see you at the food stamp office fool. if ya don't want to pay those taxes then quit your job and get yours. I'd bet you money that you have'nt ever helped anyone in need, well God will see that you end up in the same boat as those you are running down. have a nice hard day at work while I go and get me a phone. I'll be there and I'l have on a red white and blue shirt come and talk to me.

So you've bought a few dipers and helped a few people and now look at ya bragging about it, from that statement I can see it was'nt from the heart. My self I'd rather see the poor get the help than see the big car companys and aig insureance get billions of dollars after they hand out million dollar bonuses if ya want to complain about something that would be a big one, corp. walfair is the biggest waste in our country and the big tax breaks for people of wealth but no you want to pick on the poor. I'm sure theres people that use it for durg dealings and such but I need one to carry with me in case I have health troubles when I'm out and about, I can't afford life line to hang around my neck so this would be good for me, I gave 8 yrs of my life to this country and lost a leg and a heart attack and I don't use no drugs or drug deals. so vote for a new president other than the trash we have and a lot of this walfair will be cut out.

I work 5 days a week at a job that pays pretty good ,that I hate! I get no food stamps no govt help, like the person who wrote earlier, I am supposed to be on a special diet, but it's to expensive to eat "right. But I have neighbors who work a part time job, get foo stamps, HUD pays their rent, hud gives them a utility check , they have medical cards, they get help buying a vehicle, and they get a "free cell phone", yeah its screwed up. This govt has made it better to be a govt bum than to be a hard working citizen....the statement "every thing for everybody " is bull $$it,,,,,it should be every thing for everyone who Contributes.....I hate going to wal-mart at the first of the month and seeing people 45 and younger waiting in line for their checks and food stamps to be on their debit card.....get off of your Ass and get a job you lazy ass bumb!!!!! If there were fewer of you bumbs and more of us working people, just maybe our country wouldn't be as bad off as we are, and I am not slamming the seniors or the TRULY disabled!

Above is the poverty level for the 48 Contiguous States, this will qualify you for food stamps,public housing assistance , help with electricity costs and other programs, if I understood the web site I was looking at!!!
Check the wages in your area and see if you are working for poverty level wages, one of the biggest box stores in your community is a big poverty level wage payer. Care to guess who that company might be????

TABLE 1: Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Participation and Issuance - FY 2010
Kentucky 778,114 People, 353,227 Households

Nationwide for the lower 48 states the total costs is, US 40,301,878 people, 18,618,436 households and $64,704,407,189 dollars !!!!!!!!!!
