But gosh golly, when you git' done talking to yerself', how about them fled overseas to avoid regulation, offshore account tax dodging "job creators"? Holy smokes, their earnings and bonuses have increased exponentially, while us common folk have flatlined. Maybe, by gosh, you are just another corporate fetch boy with a greedy agenda. Yup.
Maybe if those middle class folks had some money in their pockets to spend, the corporations wouldn't flee the country like rats on a sinking ship to get cheap labor to compensate for their bloated desire to cut corners at the cost of humanity.
How DARE ANYONE think they should be able to keep and spend what they earn! Where's the thought police???

If people in rural areas want telephone service, cable television, internet and so on, they know how they can get it. Why should people in populated areas support anything because people in rural areas don't have it? If they want modern devices and technology and can't get it where they are at, they can move anytime they desire.
Thanks for giving me a straight answer --- at least you are consistent in your beliefs. But here's the attitude that drove this decision to make phone service available to all: a belief that we are stronger as a nation when even those in remote rule locations were able to communicate with the rest of us. The cost to string lines to serve relatively few people would be prohibitive for the individual. But a small fee added to everyone's bill made the service more valuable for all of us. The U.S. Mail's universal service was based on the same principle, many years before. City dwellers subsidized rural mail delivery.

Maybe this "we are are in the same boat" idea doesn't make sense to you, but it's been very good for our country in the past.

If a 30% approval rating was something good, the Tea Party wouldn't be so despised. If trust funded corporate fetch boys had their way, we'd all be spending our company money at the company store.

How DARE corporations ride on the backs of the working man by hiding their money offshore and not paying taxes. REAL Americans know who to blame and guess what, mouth boy. It ain't the poor and powerless in this nation.

So tell us, since your kind always gleefully drops to his knees for it's agenda, how long have you personally been one of the top 1% earners in this country? Yah, though so.

I want to make sure you guys don't forget how "scandalous" the Obama administration has been, so I will personally fill you in with the documented facts of the outcome of each of these horrendous acts of tyranny by Obama.

Remember how VERY concerned you all were about Obama's terrible Benghazi "scandal"? Turns out the Republicans recently were busted changing the wording of the emails. So the real reason you Tea Baggers were so happy to jump on this one of many proven to be bullsh!t scandals is because...?

It's because your party are not obstructionists and conniving liars and because you guys are not willing to jump on any scandal bogus because you are really just racists. That's why.

Why that's terrible. That's almost as bad as a leader lying to the people about something he knew would happen. It's almost as bad as a leader doing what's best for him and not the people. Why....... those Republicans.

I don't see how. People that live in rural areas live there for a reason. They don't like or need modern conveniences. They don't like city water, sewers, highways and so on. They like living out there on their own.

The Amish for instance do just fine without telephones, internet, cell phones, electricity, natural gas service. The Amish that don't like living that way leave the order when they become old enough or have had enough of living like that. They move. Those who had a fascination for living in a big city do so. Those who don't remain out in the country--just not practicing the Amish traditions.

There is a difference in philosophy between the left and the right. The right believes we are all individuals capable of making our own choices. If you want to be poor, don't work. If you want to be middle-class, work. If you want to be wealthy, start your own business or go to college to learn a profession. No matter what you choose, what you earn is rightfully yours.

The left looks at this country as one big commune. Some go out and earn money, other stay in the commune raising their children or just loafing around, and whatever comes into the commune is shared equally by all.

Both philosophies have their good and bad. But the question is, why are there no communes anymore????

If corporations hide their money offshore they're doing a favor to US consumers who buy their products by not charging them the embedded tax in the cost of their products. I would buy a product form that company before one with the higher cost every time.

I feel the same way about people that live along rivers that flood at least once every ten years. Why should taxpayers bail them out? You want to live by a river, then when the river destroys your belongings or home enough times, you'll move the hell out of there.

Sry XXX I have to disagree to a degree although I agree on the surface.
To agree with you totally means that we would have NO Book Mobiles, NO clinic vehicles dispatched from University Hospitals, maybe not even any roads or traffic control devices in rural areas since that tax base by itself would not contribute proportionally to those things that would benefit ALL of society for such a small amount per person. These 'free' phones usually are limited to 250 minutes per month. Not exactly a luxury.
However I do strongly resent those that can do better but find the freebee's if they underachieve, lack effort, lay back, & suck on the government programs. Unfortunately, there are too many administrators of those programs that are former ACORN like workers.
And YES! anyone that lives in a flood plain took/takes their chances by their own CHOICE. And I refuse to contribute to cabal/satellite if I have a choice or if I don't have a choice.
I am compassionate enough that I have given to the "winter care fund" on my utility bill but that is a choice & not a requirement.

Exactly.

I have a coworker that lives near the airport. He has lived there for many years and even raised his family there.

The airport decided to put in a new runway several years ago. Now the planes that use that runway take different air routes which is over his home; not that planes didn't fly over his home anyway.

I don't know which government it was, but the government decided to respond to the complaints about the airplanes. They sent workers to his house, installed all brand new windows and doors, insulation, central air so that he could close his new windows and doors and not hear the airplanes.

If noise from airplanes bothered you, WTF did you move by the airport?

I wrote this before but I'll reiterate in the event you missed it:

I'm a full time truck driver and have to use my phone for communications with my employer from time to time. I'm also a landlord which requires me to use my phone to contact workers, my father when he is working on the apartments or grounds, the bank, my tenants, the insurance company and so on.

My cell phone plan is 500 anytime minutes per month, and I can't recall anytime where I used half of that. Mind you, my cell phone is my only phone.

So the question is, if a busy guy like me doesn't need 250 minutes a month, why does a lowlife who doesn't work?

Obviously these government phone plans are not a necessity, but a luxury. They are not using those minutes to look for jobs, contact emergency services, staying in contact with an ill family member. We are forced to pay for these plans and phones for recreational use. I'm against that. Do you know what it would take to get a cell phone with a 250 per month minute plan each month? About a half of a days work at McDonalds. And most of their restaurants are always looking for any kind of help.

if George bush. Wouldn't have ran this country in the ground. Trying to get back at everybody that try hurting his dad , and listen to somebody. Besides war lords. Chaney and Rumsfeld. This country wouldn't be broke and suffering. I done two tours of Iraq. I seen what was happening over there, money be thrown away by the handfuls Just to bribe religious leaders not to kill each other, letting Iraq people pimp out Iraq people for 5 bucks a day. When they paid the pimp Iraq civilian 10,000 a day to work them. It was all a joke. Besides my buddies getting killed for nothing . By being put in a no win situation. So , u republicans can't talk all this shit about Obama And all your talking is coming out of the side of your ass. If you want to blame somebody. Blame bush. Obama has been trying to clean that dudes mess up from day 1. And it will take. 4 more years. After Obama To even see. If we can ever get back to the days. We had money in the bank in this country.( bill Clinton ). Surplus. And bush. Went through it like it was play money.
