This is discouraging: 1,000,000 people in Ohio have “OBAMA PHONES” that We the People paid for. Oh, we’ve talked about these things before. It’s all so Obama can community organize his low-income peeps and make sure that they vote for him. Who believes he’s not going to use that database of Obama Phone Owners to get out the vote? Remember the stories that said that databases were handed over to ACORN in illegal coordination last election? Buying votes, one at a time, with OUR MONEY. http://www.daytondailynews.com/news/news/subsidized-cell-phone-program-nearly-doubles-in-oh/nRDqC/
“A program that provides subsidized phone service to low-income individuals has nearly doubled in size in Ohio in the past year — now covering more than a million people. At the same time, federal officials say they’re reining in waste, fraud and abuse in the program.
The Federal Communications Commission announced recently that reforms have saved $43 million since January and are expected to save $200 million by year’s end. In Ohio, savings are expected to be $2.9 million a year.
The savings were realized in part because the government gave out fewer cellphones to ineligible people and took steps to avoid issuing duplicate phones.”
Don’t you love their logic? They create a program that wastes our money and then, when they rein it in a little, they pat themselves on the back for the “savings” their oversight has brought about! This is beyond anything Orwell imagined. It takes mendacity to a brand new level.
This program is such a boon for the communist redistributors: It helps selected, complicit companies that supply the “service” and skim off profits (how many are minority contractors?), it helps Barry community organize and buy votes, it raises the cost of phones to everyone else because we subsidize these “free” programs for the “poor” via the good old “Al Gore tax”. I was going to say this, and then I found it in the story:
“This growth worries people like Tom Schatz, president of the watchdog group Citizens Against Government Waste.
“There are still questions about whether or not cellphones should be provided at all,” he said. “The entire premise of the program should continue to be examined by Congress.””
EXACTLY. Everything Obama does begins with a faulty premise. We end up arguing over details of how it works instead of the fact that IT SHOULDN’T EXIST IN THE FIRST PLACE. Where is it written in the Constitution that it’s one purpose of the federal government to extract money from the pockets of some so that they can put free telephones, with free service, into the pockets of others?
“COMMUNIST DISINFORMATION, AMERICAN-STYLE”
“Editor’s note: Who could have imagined that one of the most audacious disinformation campaigns in American history would turn out, according to a recently declassified FBI file, to have a direct connection not only to today’s president of the United States, Barack Obama, but to top advisers David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett as well? Here, Professor Paul Kengor, author of “The Communist,” the new bestseller about Obama mentor Frank Marshall Davis, tells the incredible story of communist disinformation in America and its multiple ties to those now “fundamentally transforming” this country from the top.”
At “The Obama File”:
“JB asks, “when did Communism become an American dream?”
“What we see happening today didn’t begin with the election of America’s first fraudulent Muslim Marxist in 2008. The truth is, global leftists didn’t believe they could leap to this final stage until 2016 and neither did anyone else. However, the American press and courts made it possible for them to push up their closing strategy by two full election cycles, using the race card to trick Americans into electing someone they knew absolutely nothing about and still know very little about four years later.
Nobody knew anything about Obama then. Millions of Americans bought into his promises of “hope and change” without ever stopping to ask who this person was, where he came from, how he arose from total obscurity to international fame overnight with absolutely zero accomplishments on his résumé. Nobody even bothered to ask what kinds of “change” he had in store for America. It was the most amazing political scam I had ever witnessed, and I have witnessed many political scams, here and abroad.
The American people were dead asleep at the switch. All they had to know was what the leftist press told them — that if they didn’t vote for this person, Barack Hussein Obama, a chance to “make history,” they were “racists.” So, history was indeed made. The first communist president was elected to the people’s White House, by massive hook and crook.”
Excellent analysis by Beckwith. I’m going to copy the link to the new open thread, so everyone reads this.
T’was the night before elections,
And all thru’ the town,
Tempers were flaring
Emotions ran up and down.
I, in my bathrobe
With a cat in my lap,
Had shut off the TV,
tired of political crap.
When all of a sudden,
There arose such a noise,
I peered out my window,
Saw Obama and his boys
They had come for my wallet,
They wanted my pay
To hand out to others
Who had not worked a day!
He snatched up my money,
And quick as a wink,
Jumped back on his bandwagon
As I gagged from the stink.
He then rallied his henchmen
Who were pulling his cart.
I could tell they were out
To tear my country apart!
‘On Fannie, on Freddie,
On Biden and Ayers!
On Acorn, on Pelosi’
He screamed at the pairs!
They took off for his cause,
And as they flew out of sight,
I heard him laugh at a nation
Who wouldn’t stand up and fight!
So I leave you to think on this one final note…
IF YOU DON’T WANT SOCIALISM GET OUT AND VOTE !!!!
TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY, lest we forget. Its a stance, not a party.
That’s funny. Thanks, Papoose.
