SafeLink Wireless: A Government Welfare Program For Cell Phones

Did you know that your tax dollars are subsidizing cell phones for poor people? That’s what SafeLink Wireless is, according to the website:

SAFELINK WIRELESS® service is U.S. government supported program for Income eligible households provided by TracFone Wireless, Inc. In order to participate in the SAFELINK WIRELESS® service, persons must meet certain eligibility requirements set by each State where the service is to be provided. These requirements are based on a person’s participation in a state or Federal support programs or by meeting the Income Poverty Guidelines as defined by the U.S. Government. SAFELINK WIRELESS® service is limited to one person per household.

Personally, I always thought of a cell phone as a luxury. You have it if you can afford it. It’s something you earn. It’s certainly not something that should be part of a welfare package for “the poor.”
I mean, what motivation do people who are poor have to make themselves better if they can go through life eating subsidized food, living in subsidized housing while talking on their subsidized cell phones?

    For reference, I am a case worker in Columbus, Ohio, and help people apply for any low-income assistance program they are eligible for.

    Actually, these phones have allowed MANY of my clients who are homeless (more once middle-class, white, professionals than you can imagine, who have lost their jobs, and lost their homes) to secure housing and start working again. How would one get an apartment or return a call for an interview without a phone?

    It is quite common for senior citizens, who worked their whole lives and receive social security, to only get $16-25 in food stamps. They receive too much SSI to qualify for more, but spend almost all of their income on prescription drug costs. Utilities are one of the first things to go for them when they are having trouble making ends meet, Would you want your elderly parent to live on their own and have no emergency phone in case they fall or become ill? And speaking of health problems, is it right to allow anyone with a health problem to go without a means to get emergency health care when they need it? Do you know how many homeless veterans I work with that are in this situation?

    Sure, an iphone with internet access and unlimited calls/texts would be extravagant, but we are talking about a track phone with a maximum amount of 250 minutes a month! How often do you use your phone? This is not an unreasonable amount (and it was just raised from only 68minutes a month!) this is reasonable for someone looking for work, looking for a home, checking in with loved ones, or for emergencies.

    And just something to think about: lets just say there are folks that are “living off the system,” (which is nearly impossible). What kind of life is it to bring your children up in subsidized housing, often times around the influences of violence and drugs? To live off of maybe $200 for food and a phone that only is good for 250 minutes? You act like “living off of welfare,” is some luxurious thing, and those people are just raking in the dough! “Living of of welfare,” if just what it means- LIVING- but just barely. We support our poor just enough to make sure they are still alive, but rarely enough to help them get out of the cycle of poverty and improve their lives.

    I love how you people always want folks who have fallen on hard times to “to pull themselves up by their bootstraps, work hard, and stop living off the system!”…but will not support giving them the tools to so. Your blog is ridiculous, and you literally know nothing of what you’re talking about.

      WELL SAID AND THAT’S A BEAUTIFUL THING HEARING FROM A WORKER OF THE STATE… PEOPLE ARE QUICK TO JUDGE UNTIL THEY FIND THEMSELVES IN THE SAME SITUATION AS THE ONES THEY DOWN GRADED. YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT TOMORROW BRINGS AND THERE ARE PEOPLE ON ASSISTANCE WHO ONCE NEVER THOUGHT IT COULD HAPPEN TO THEM

      Thanks for writing this…

      I worked for the federal government for over 11 years making a nice-comfortable 6 digit salary..When the economy fell-so did my position. I lost everything..My savings,career,house,cars and almost my mind. After my savings was depleted, I had no other choice than to apply for welfare. I have 4 small children to raise. I hated asking for help and it really hurt my pride. However without these benefits we would have not been able to eat, have utilities or a roof over or head. They saved us until I could find steady work.
      To everyone who has negative things to say about people on welfare-do not judge until you walk in my shoes….

        Evaluating a program has little to do with people on it.

        The idea that a program isn’t working doesn’t mean the people using it are garbage. It just means the program itself sucks.

    • Cawhite

      Yea, and how many of them DO NOT ever get off the welfare program and go out and get a job instead of producing more kids that end up “living off welfare”????? Some never make it out of public housing, and generations just stay in it – what happened to being on public assistance for a limited amount of time only? “Bare living”? Yea, with their food stamps, utility bills, Section 8 housing and now free cell phones, they’re living better than my tax-paying self, and I’m sick of paying for people who are too lazy to get off their front porches to go out and pay for many government-leeching individuals and their broods!

      • Cherryallamanda

        ACTUALLY, there is a lifetime limit of 60 months for temporary assistance (at least in my state), which is 5 years. No one can “not ever get off welfare.” It is impossible.

        I myself am on sec.8 ,have been for a while. I am a single divorced woman with 2 sons.I work every day but for only min. wages. If i did’nt get some help I would have ended up on the streets with both my sons to worry about as well as myself. I thank God that I received help! I pay taxes on every thing just like you do- what I make does’nt even let me buy food most of the time- so we do without. I can’t afford to buy my medicine,now that I am older. It’s hard to make ends meet. I, too think we should limit the way people abuse the programs by doing drug tests and limiting how many children you have in a household just like China does.But this is America and we don’t do that here. So please don’t judge everyone so harshly until you have been where a lot of us are right now.

        I have been trying to dig my way out for over 12 yrs. With the way the U S A is going down the tubes, has me concerned, we will be the first to be discarded into the trash. I didn’t ask to be here. My body, is worn out. So untill you walk in my shoes, well there is a saying, if YOU can’t say anything nice, SHUT UP.

        • 2hotel9

          So, you have been gaming the system for 12 years and you don’t want people calling you out on it. That makes you a welfare whore. But hey! Don’t sweat it, just keep stealing from everyone else, you seem to be good at it, riding welfare for 12 years.

            2hotel9 hmm hotel does that mean you spend your
            hard earned tax money that you also get from the government what you didn’t
            think your company alone pays you did you? lol Where do you think they get
            there money from and the people they got it from its all government money.
            Anyways does the name hotel mean you spend your money, which could have been
            used to help those in need on whores, which you just called that poor woman who
            is working her butt off for her family

            And another illiterate welfare whore toddles in to cry and whine. So, you live in England and are going to tell me how I earn a living? Really, whinny lying c*nt? Tell us some more, welfare whore.

      • MerlinX

        Excuse me but my friend disabled now and on welfare, not all
        of them are living off your hard-earned tax money he worked 8 years before it
        hit at his job so he is living off his now. Better, your money go to something
        that matters like a poor family than the booze you buy, pot you smoke, drugs
        you pay for or hoes you pay for sex, which most guy’s do these days. Brood
        indeed you call animals that not humans mark my words one of these days you
        will be in there shoes and will be on this sight defending the cause.

      • Hope

        With all due respect cawhite, many of these people have worked and paid taxes their whole life and have fallen upon hard times. You act as though it comes out of your own pocket when in fact that is a benefit they themselves have earned. Its not your tax dollars, it was the tax dollars they paid. And what ever happened to being charitable and tolerant of others? Try to refrain from being so judgemental. If it sounds like such a great deal to you, quit your job, and live it up! I’m sure you’ll find its not as luxurious as you think. 

      • Bbashia

        Anyone who is choosing to live on public assistance has some problem.  It’s hard to survive on the amount of money given you on public assistance.  You try making it on $400 some dollars a month.  These days in most states, anyone on public assistance you is required to be  proving they are looking for a job, taking job training, or working at some low paid workfare program.  People don’t “choose” these situations unless there is something really wrong with them.  Of course, there are some that cheat.  We have cheaters in every system.  But the cheaters who are really costing taxpayers billions are those at the top.  Why focus your frustration on people who need help?  Why not focus on those multi-billionaires that are paying off our legislators for corporate welfare that is too often subsidizing their efforts to outsource jobs? 

    • Chi82

      Sorry I don’t buy your BS. I cannot imagine that a cell phone is in any way necessary for a person to survive. Food and shelter – absolutley. A cell phone? Why? So a person can talk to a friend next door? I have a cell phone with 250 mintues/month and I use about 50, and could easliy get along without it at all. But no one pays for my phone, I pay for it from my savings (I am retired). I think this whole thing gets back to the entitlement attitude that many in the US now have – they believe that even if they can’t afford it they are entitled to it so it should be provided free.

      As long as we the people keep giving unnecessary things to people we will sink lower and lower into the welfare state. Lead by our joke of a president we are being lead into absolute socialism and dependence on our government for everything.

        So when I go to apply for a job or I’m looking for a place to live do I give the pay phone number up the road to call me on??? 

      • Eeyore1127

        Well I’ll pray that YOU will never fall on hard times.
        I’m fixing to lose my cell phone, which I pay for. And because of that, the nursing home where my Mother is cant reach me as the have been able to in the past when they have taken her to the ER.
        I think that if you dont understand a situation its best to be quiet, because YOU sound like the south end of a north bound MULE!!

      • MerlinX

        So let me ask your self righteous self  this if you were disabled no money at all and well I am guessing you are old sense you are retired. They should not have a phone from which to call help if need be or if a mothers child is hurt and she needs to remain with the child and needs that cell to call help she should not have it?

      • SingleMom83

        Actually a phone of any kind is a neccessity!!!! What kind of moron would think otherwise?? How do you call for a job posotion or when your children are sick how do you call their doctor? I guess to people who are seemingly blessed with money things like that don’t matter. When my kids are sick I need to call a doctor, not just let them sit and suffer. I have worked my whole life, sometimes 2 or 3 jobs at a time. Unfortunatley these are hard times now and if it wasn’t for a little help from all the taxes I paid over the years then my family wouldn’t survive.

You have it if you can afford it. It’s something you earn.

    • Ebliever

      eforsee,
      I am a middle-class engineer. I do not have a cell phone. Let me tell you, I resent being robbed and stolen from so that poor people can have ‘free’ cell phones at taxpayer expense.

      You can rationalize this all you want. It is stealing. Why can’t I have one of these ‘free’ cell phones as a taxpayer too? (I just got one of the mailers for it, which is how I was alerted to this latest example of government plundering and pillaging).

      This is a clear violation of the Constitution. It is a violation of my property rights. It keeps people who _could_ better themselves (and yes, I agree that some cannot) poor and dependent. I give over 15% of my income to charity – how many of your plundering friends in government can say the same? If you really believe this private agenda of yours is a great idea, then fund it privately. Stop stealing from taxpayers.

    • Granny1957

      I just want to say that where I live most of the subsidized housing  are full of drugs and violence.
      their is money in saleing drugs. Lots of these people live very well. Drive nice cars and wear nice cloths, and have their own top model cell phones. I have been to DHS I receive benefits. I see the women come in with their nails done, designer jeans and not government phones.
      I believe that a person should be given a limited amount of time to stay in public housing then reevaluated. Unless they are disabled or elderly. People get in  and they never leave.It should be set up to give some one else a chance. Expecially if your young and able, I know I got off the subject, but I have always wanted to speak my mind about this.

    • Shustwick

      Actually, I know of many people who have these phones, who have no need for them, but get them BECAUSE they are free.  One woman in particular, is not looking for a job, is not going to be joining the work force, has a landline and her own cell phone which she maintains, (she lives off of assistance) and gives the phone to her granddaughter for her to have the talk time.  250 minutes each and every month.  This is not isolated.  Many people that are known to me (I work in a soup kitchen) do exactly the same thing.  As far as bringing up your children around violence and drugs, you need to look no farther than the movie “Precious”.  Art imitating life……

    Sorry I disagree, these phones wil be used to ake drug deals and other criminal activity. I am laid off but don’t qualify for a phone. I don’t own a cell phone and use pay phones when I need to make a call away from homeIt’s lik the food stamp cards that are sold for cash and drugs are bought with the money . Where are the checks and balances????????Or the welfare cards that are cashed in at the casinos and my tax dollars are paying for this madness no wonder they keep raising the taxes. When does this madness cease??????/

    • Jonnyracerx

      Dan, most people DON’T sell their food stamps for drugs, believe it or not.
      You have a horrible view of society.
      You would take the few crumbs given to the poor, because 1 or 2 people have at some time figured a way to abuse it, yet you are FAR from perfect. You admittedly don’t even have a job yourself. How long have you been abusing the unemployment insurance???
      Quit being a jerk. Don’t you believe in the American way – Innocent until proven guilty?
      Try to have a more positive attitude, or at least less hypocritical.

      • guest

        A few crumbs? 43 million people (I cannot say Americans) receive food stamps. This is a substantial pile of “crumbs”. A conservative estimate of 17%, (the low end of what most stores lose through fraud) would say that 7.3 million (7,310,000 if you like numbers) are receiving them fraudulently. I think taxpayers have a right to complain.

          The U.S. government must reduce th yearly immigrant quotas in this country. Many (not all) are taking jobs and housing from Americans; and OVERWHELMING the social service system. Foreign students are awarded food stamps. What we get in return is a “chip on their shoulder ” and a belly full of “it’s my right”. Illegal immigrants do not deserve food stamps!

          The days when uneducated, lazy people flooding the system are over. Today, people are more educated, aware, proud, and willing to work; Many of us are professional. The stereotype of “the lazy and the low-class” must be oblitererated.

          I was preparing for a Doctorate in Psychology when I became unable to continue with school or work. It devastated me! Americans have a bad habit of classifying everyone as “being the same”.
          We all have different stories; and none of them are nice. There are abusers in the system; but it usually does not last long in this age of Social Security Numbers and computers.

          I share your anger in some ways. However, much of this problem has been imposed on Americans by a government that engenders the problem; then, “causes its citizens to get a bad rap”. Griping on a website pulverizing the sick and poor doesn’t do it. Get to your legistlatures, and yes, write to Mr. Obama and tell them all to “start taking care of Americans first, not last.”

    • guest

      As a social services worker, I am aware that many of America’s seniors suffer great functional disabilities that prevent seeking an outside pay phone and very little income. . It is certainly heuristic to say that these phones are used for “drug deals and other criminal activity”; hw/ever for in my years of social service, I have NEVER met an illegal drug dealer or any other “criminal” who would seriously ever consider applying for a government phone. I mean seriously, don’t you think Dumpsterdan2 that such a folly would be disruptive and possibly freedom ending for those who may be seduced by such a path in life? I hear people like you all the time speaking these fantasical ideas , such as ” welfare cards that are cashed in at the casinos and my tax dollars are paying for this madness no wonder they keep raising the taxes” is ludicrous. There is NO evidence of this, and your taxes are used for maintaining the society we have-schools, infrastructure, clean water, and probably your personal favorite-Big Business subsidies. In fact, BigPharma (our legal Rx dealers) are the biggest defrauder of U.S. government funds-NOT poor single mothers, struggling disabled seniors, or those who have worked hard only to have unfortunate events knock them down. I hope you are NEVER in a situation where you need serious help from the masses/government.

      • guest

        Its sad that people even have to get welfare but its also sad that people have to be poor because their are people with money that are not willing to give to others. If everyone that does have would give, I believe that poverty would start to shrink. Its all about love. The love in the world is gone and God is not in the world thats why people talk hate instead of love. Godly love is what people need for others.

    • I HATE SAFELINK

      I heard somewhere else that these phone are designed so that the government can spy on the ones using it without a warrant since it is supplied by the government. I was on it up until two weeks ago when the incompetence of the service of havnig 0 service days when I should have a year of service. I decided to look for another service which allowed me to find a smartphone for $30 on sale at kmart instead of paying the full $70 and the service is manageable at $25 a month. When I can afford afford a 1 year service card for the safelink I will burn off all the minutes that I can than burn the phone. The government should do the same thing they did with the converter box coupons and have the people buy their own phone of their choice pre-paid or post-paid and have coupons issued to the amount of $20-$30 and let the consumer pay anything over and above that amount.

    • lovely lisa

      When people like you cease, there are many people that have worked and are just going thrue hard times, and may need a phone, and to say you dont qualify that means you have tried to apply, umm to me you sound like a hater all the way!!! When you stop worrieng about the negative and think of the positive it does for many people , maybe then you will stop the haterade. To say your out of a job I can see why your field with bitterness but trust me its not cause of the goverment its cause of your last boss. DUH!!!HATER!!!?????

    • edearl52

       SORRY,because you for whatever reason ,can’t qualify,you want to put everyone else in the slim with you .Checks and balance when you can,t scam what you want out the system.You sure seem to know an awful lot about all that madness you want to cease.

    • T4henry2

      very well said. I would love to see te people who really need this getting it . But what I see is not what the tax payers are getting. Too much fraud in the system and not enough check and balances . We are paying for illegals, drug addicts etc . whcih incurs a yearly tax sum of 450 billion dollars. If we wouldd change and the fraud would stop I believe most americans would agree that they are more than wiilling to even pay for schooling , laptops and even child care for four years just to get that individul back on his or her feet. But the truth of the fact is that some many dollars are taken away the need of the poor individuals and given to folks who have no intention of going back to work. I seen people in line use other people’s children to claim as their own. This goes on daily so tell me who will be held accountable for those ones bankrupting the system which could end helping those who really need it.  

  • Nic

    We need to go back to a time when our families helped us, our neighbors helped us, and our churches helped us when we had needs. It’s not the government’s job to meet all of your needs. I’m sure there are people out there who don’t abuse the system, but I’m in the grocery store line with many who do abuse it. I was very poor growing up, and when we didn’t have money, my grandmother scraped together what little she had to make sure I had medicine or lunch money. We had a thing called PRIDE, which is something that’s missing in much of our society. And the more that government subsidies become commonplace, the more they are expected. We need to draw a line somewhere, and I believe we could start with free cell phones.

If anyone is interested in cheap phones look for virgin mobile paylo it costs $20 for the phone and as little as $20 for three months of service at $0.20 per minute or 400 minute per month at $20.00 per month. From what I have heard it is a lot cheaper for the working poor that do not have time to spend countless hours telling the customer service to provide service. It is also a good idea to consider buying a tracphone for as little as $10 or $15 dollars and using a $20 phone card especially if the phone is specially marked as providing double minutes for life.

  • You don’t need to know

    I’m 43 years old and have never had a cell phone, don’t need one and don’t want one. I have a land line at home that I pay for myself and that’s all I need.
    The addiction people seem to have for these devices seems pathetic to me.

    • lovely lisa

      Until youve walked in another mans shoes, just cause you only use a land line doesn’t mean everyone can afford one, times are really hard for alot of people.

    • luv luv

      Many of the people using these services are HOMELESS, so they don’t have the luxury of a HOME phone dumba$$! They are imperative for them to be able to even find housing or a job… geezusss people. I guess you don’t understand bad, until you fall on bad times yourself. I pray for you that you never have to.

    Not to mention the fact that our government is in debt up to its eyeballs to China, how can they afford to do such a silly thing.

  • Larney03

    I cant afford certain luxuries so I do without. I dont rely on someone else to buy it for me. You can do without a cell phone. It wasn’t very long ago when knowone had cell phones. Man has been here for thousands of years and we have only been using cell phones for about twenty of them. Before twenty years ago only rich people had them and that was only for a short period. You assholes need to stop making our society a bunch of weenies that can’t do anything for themselves. For JONNYRACERX, hard work is the American way not inocent untill proven guilty. Thats a slogan from cops you idiot.

  • CANNOTBELIEVE

    This program really gets to me. In a day of entitlements where is it stated that everyone is entitled a cell phone. Come on! No wonder we are in debt! I know people who have this “deal” and guess what they have a home phone that they pay for, so why should I help pay for their cell phones? Enough is enough! Here the government could save money–my money! What government agency runs this program?

  • bill

    I pay for a cell phone. I don’t get free healthcare or foodstamps or subsidized housing or educational grants or any of the other 771 welfare programs in the US. I could use my cell phone money elsewhere. It’s too bad that people can’t afford cell phones. They don’t need them it’s a frickin luxury.

    • Lookn4u2return

      Tell me how you paid for your education?

  • Cperezgardner

    I can believe that the goverment can go and give all this people free cell phones..I have worked all my life and because I don’t qualify for any of the goverment programs..I can’t get a free phone. I wonder what will the goverment do if they find out that some of those free loaders live better than some of the honest people that work and pay taxes.

  • Pcme77

    if u want to talk about wefare mooches you might want to start with our so call goverment must be nice to get voted in to a goverment job like a state police they work for 20 years and retire for the rest of there life they get 25 percent off every thing food clothes houseing taxes cars on & on & on and dont start that well they have a danger job they chose to do it theres more damgers job then that or a state capital job they voted there self a 35,000 a year pay raise plus all heath care a govener works 4 8 0r 12 years and get 90 percent of there pay for the rest of there life plus all health care they voted there raise when the recession hit must be nice or our presadent they worh 4 years and get there pay till they death & heath care so u buttheads are bitchen about some person that got crippled on the job makeing 5 bucks a hour and its in a wheel chair for there last 50 years of there life and get a fortune of money for the rest of there life 100 bucks a week if there lucky and they get a free cell phone incase they have to call some one for help becase there trying to get to the store to get some food or some low life lieing cop that ripps of some dude for his money and his pot so they can get high with there friends and dont open your stupid lips becaues i no i have seen it personaly i agree if someone is ripping off the program then there breaking the law report them i promise u cry babys will get the same programs if u get in hard times i would rather have the poor working sap get those kind of programs with tax money then some lazy low life lieing cop or lawyer or some politition that works a few years or some c e o that cant spend there millions have u jackasses heard equal rights and justic for all yea right look at all the people that in jails or the gas chamber cause some low life cop pig needed a bust and they lied ect.ect.ect. some poor working dude got cripple for ever because there rich employer thinks more about a buck man people sure are a JOKE

  • Hayhorse

    You have got to be kidding. To read the part about ‘being paid for by taxpayers’ one needs to ask if the program is being for by people who don’t pay taxes. Even if the larding means the statement is true to the letter of the law, one might check those add on taxes on your cell phone bill.

    Drug deals on the corner funded on the backs of folk with problems of their own. 250 minutes is but half of what I struggle to pay. In emergencies maaaaybe 50 minutes a month with no add ons allowed.

  • Jared G.

    This government subsidized phone program has been in place since the reagan days and was originally designed as a way for the poor to have access to emergengy services and be able to contact potential employers.The programs funding is just receiving critisizm due to the economic troubles that the country is in. But bottom line it accounts for a very, very small percantage of our american budget that is full of pet projects , weighed down by rediculous defense budgeting, and the gross abuses in healthcare funding for research and development of drugs and procedures which predominantly only benefit the wealthy or the elderly at great expence to the young.

            Yes it does, Jesus feed the hungry, helped the poor, sick, & crippled. He told us to do like wise. I don’t have much, but I have more than some. So if some one needs food I give something because I could be like them.

            That is the difference, those on the political left want to force people to “have” compassion, those on the right just want people “to” have compassion, and exercise it as they choose.

    Wow,I just found out I’m eligible for a Safelink phone! I haven’t had a cell phone since my husband died of cancer in ’09.It would have been nice to have this when I was going throug my own chemo & radiation & on the road for 4 hours a day. I could have kept better tabs on my kids.Social Security survivors benefits don’t add up to much & unfortunately I lost my cafeteria job when I was sick.Haven’t found another job that I can handle yet.I haven’t quite recovered from the cancer experience.At least my house is paid off..no more morgatge,,,thanks to morgatge insurance .So we’re not all welfare whores…and I do intend to take advantage of every program that is available for my kids & myself !

  • Gothor

    people are no heart piece of s**t scum bags these days dont care about anybody but there selves.this is all due to the parents bieng afraid to spank there kid in lue of the cops.fuck the goverment they have done nothing but suck this contry dry of its wealth i say its time for an american revolt.stop the free trade agrement and make it an equal trade agrement if we buy from them they should have to buy from us in equal value.get rid off all taxes except income and put it at .50 cents on the dollar and import tax at 15%.that meens no state no property no food no gas no nothing taxes just those 2 taxes.theres only 6 things the goverment should be spending money on schools,military,inferstructer,nasa,disabled/retiries and medical reserch.i think there should only be police and fbi no nsa secret service or irs should all be done by fbi there are hundreds of billions of dollars waisted on stupid shit there should be some comitie that goes threw all the spending every year and fires people who spent the goverments money on stupid shit.there is one more thing i beleave the goverment should spend there money on and thats a car and collage fund for people that turn 18 this is for kids to get back and forth from school and work and dont have to worry about bieng driven into debt by it.just look at it as an investment for the future. kid has to work and worie about bills less meens more studeing meens better education which leads to better paying job meens more income to goverment.get rid of states there shouldent be state laws and gov laws state names should only be used as markers.and back to the safe link thing im all for it goverments not paying for the service anyways cell phone company made a deal with goverment they get new towers the signal rights and new areas to service in return goverment has the right to use there systems any way they want so dont be surprised if the higher ups dont pay cell phone bills.

    • 2hotel9

      And yet another welfare whore is heard from. Why don’t you just quit stealing from other people, whore?

      • GladNotYou!!

        You sound like the biggest piece of uneducated trash i’ve ever heard. Ive read this whole comment section and while other people are giving there opinions (which last time i checked everyone was entitled to their own opinion), you just sit their pursecuting and calling anyone and everyone who disagrees with you a “welfare whore” and whatever else makes you feel better about yourselves(its sad it takes you putting others down for their beliefs for you to feel good about your own and who you are)! Even people that have said they just work for the government as social workers and what not, when given their opinion based on what they see EVERYDAY because they disagree with you(when in actuality they have more of a right voicing due to the fact that they see this day in and day out…..and what do you know? But i’m not judging,like i said we’re all entitled to our opinions) have the odasity to put them down. Everyones talking about how so many people get food stamps,your not mentioning how little of an amount people get from these food stamps to live off of. But i guess in your uneducated worlds $16.00 is the same as $1,000 right? From an uneducated standpoint the math is equal, right?
        Pride? WTF does pride have to do with your grandmother scraping up money to get you your medicine and lunch money? That doesn’t take pride….pride is when someone less fortunate then you has to go into one of these welfare or social security offices and admit they need help because otherwise their children would starve and have no shelter. Times aren’t like they were some 20-30years ago, people don’t help others anymore and everyone looks down on everyone else when they don’t have the newest and latest stuff. It takes pride for children to go to school and ride the bus and get on at the stop where everyone knows “that’s where the poor people live” (because they’re coming out of the subsidized housing area) and to go to school after christmas knowing they only got a slinky because thats all the “state assitance” allowed their parents to get them-thats all the extra money their parent(s) had left over. You guys act like people on welfare are just getting a free ride and live like everyone else but you couldn’t be more wrong-you literally have to jump thru hoops to get the tiniest amount of assitance these days. Even when i think back 16 some odd years ago the system has changed in so many ways, its virtually impossible for someone to get TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) and get a “free ride”(as you guys call it)or even stay on it for any length of time for that matter. What little the state does help you out with you work for it(maybe not by “going to work” INITIALLY but getting special documents, going to appointments, checking in on a regular basis,going to so many interviews,going to information sessions, getting papers signed by your employer showing your working(which i think is pretty damn embarrassing to even admit you can’t make ends meat so to admit that to anyone, especially to those you work for and with-thats punishment enough)and the state makes damn sure your back on your feet ASAP. Nothing is a free ride as you guys seem to think. No one is living this lavish life!

        But guess what, if the tables were turned and any of you needed help i bet you’d be right there at 8:00am when that welfare office opened and you’d be the ones bitching about how little they give you and how you can’t support yourself and your child, or perhaps even your whole family on a measily $500-800/month.

        And dont even get me started on the reasons why people need assistance! Some people aren’t lucky enough to have a(n) (absent) parent who actually pays child support or even does his(or her) part in raising the child.Its probably you morons on this site that haven’t even paid out a dollar in child support or even seen your kids for that matter.

        And seriously, all of this bitching started over how some people (only certain people and under certain circumstances i might add)get a lousy 150minutes a month(and seriously, it was only a few months ago that the number of minutes got raised to this…before it was,depending on where you lived anywhere from 42-68minutes)on a little toy cell phone so when there pick of crap car breaks down(because they can’t afford a 2012 prius or BMW or even a 15yr old Ford) they actually have an emergency phone to call for help so they don’t feeze to death in their car with their children in the back seat, or like the other people said, so the guy whose crippled can call for someone to pick him up so he can go spend that $60/month he has to put towards food.Their are so many different senerios as to why someone might need that emergency phone. Some people, that emergency phone is the only way to have employers contact them so they can get a job and get off welfare. You people are seriously dispicable-your all mad because some people had something happen to them and for whatever reason need help, so the government is helping them(and as you say you are too,but inactuality almost all of you, if not everyone of you get those big fat tax checks back at the end of the year. Are people bitching at you and putting you down for taking advantage of that child tax credit?

        For those on here that are bitchin that said, they didn’t qualify for a phone – how would you know if you didn’t try? Kind of two faced, don’t you think?Seems to me like you guys are just jealous and your egos are wounded to have that much hostility because some people need help at some point in their lives and the gov’t is willing to help them (and i use the term “help” losely because all the gov’t does is give people the bare essentials to get back on their feet and literally not a penny more and in some cases not even enough to get on their feet)And do you idiots really think a drug dealer, someone who hides from the gov’t and law is going to ask the law/gov’t to pay for a phone they could of gotten for $10 pretty much anywhere and a measily 100minutes a month??? If you think so,and i really do mean this in the kindest way, you need to have your head examined!

        But afterall, what do i know? (i’ll save you the trouble 2hotel9 and Enigma_Cypher ) i’m just a welfare whore and a welfare wench.

        Seriously though, some of you make me sick.And yeah i’m sure you don’t care what i think or feel but i care and i’m happy i don’t have to live with someone and wake up next to someone as pigheaded, uncaring, unhappy, and just all out miserable as you guys! And if i was your mothers, saying some of the stuff you guys just strew about on here,showing how nieve and narcisitic and just cold hearted you are, Id feel like i failed in life raising someone with the morals you’ve shown on here.

    I am a home health worker. I see these phones in use. The houses i have seen them in are old people drawing about $600 on SSI. They do get food stamps…but you try living off $100 for food a month. The phones i have seen are used to make doctor appointments, calling ambulances to be rushed to the hospital, calling transportation to get them to their appointments, calling to make sure they have their medicine. This is their only phone and to do all that they get 68 minutes to do all this with. I am sure they would much rather have a landline phone., but if they paid $30 or more a month for one that is taking away from their prescrption medicine that they have to have.

    Before you sit and judge just think it could be you one day. Have a heart. It might even be your parents or your grandparents. Something could happen and it could be you. We aren’t guaranteed our health. If your health goes you are screwed. Try living off of their income and make sure you have your meds, groceries, heat, transportation to get to the doctor.

    “Q: Has the Obama administration started a program to use “taxpayer money” to give free cell phones to welfare recipients?

Live off your parents, collect unemployment, live off husband, or do you actually have employment? I am going to laugh the day you get fired or laid off. Karma will catch up with you so just don’t worry honey it always does. I know welfare recipients that work 2 jobs which is probably way more than what you work. They are paying into the system.
        And think about it retards if we spend money on training/educating people then they will be paying in taxes once they get a good job. DUH!!!!!!!!

        • Kidneytheive

          oh and good luck with a catchy comeback for that because I don’t think you can do any better. You just like to spew the word ‘whore’ all the time. I thought I would throw it around in a different context. Another thing is the system is already in place so good luck changing it. No matter which President you vote for it will always be there (Republican or Democrat). You can bitch, moan, and cry but it will never go away. I’m sure people wouldn’t mind dying in the street but you know that would cause massive uprisings just like during the French Revolution. I’m sure the upper class wouldn’t want anarchy, chaos, on their precious houses. The system is in place to protect you from the poor rising up with guns.

          • Kidneytheive

            If you want to live in a country like Africa then by all means take away all forms of support.

          • Kidneytheive

            mind you that includes unemployment, workers comp, etc.. Lets really rough it and do it on our own. Yep, because THAT IS THE AMERICAN WAY………… and this is way I LOVE THIS COUNTRY. ahem…….LOL

          • Kidneytheive

            why*

          • 2hotel9

            Poor little welfare whore, this is the best you got? Let me guess, your government paid internet account drops on the 15th each month and you are just trying to get the most out of it before midnight.

            Oh, and I don’t have to worry about you rising up, all we have to do is shut off your phone and you collapse into gibbering hysterics, welfare whore.

          • Kidneytheive

            Hey dumb ass I actually am not on welfare. I have a B.S. in History from Illinois State. I just have compassion for others and I don’t mind my loans or taxes from my job going for that. :)

          • Kidneytheive

            I am not worried about it like you are because all I see is you bitching. If you are so against the system try changing it. I don’t respect people who just bitch. At least if you are trying to change something than you are actively participating. Oh.. and I still don’t think you have a job.

          • 2hotel9

            Poor little welfare whore. Too bad you can’t live without that welfare, since clearly you can’t hold a job. You even fail as a spambot. You have not put your link in a single one of these comments. What a stupid c*nt.

          • Kidneytheive

            why the hell should I put my link anywhere? I work in a library you anon. I’m sorry you can’t hold a job (just take it out on me) enjoy life though. HAHAHA

          • 2hotel9

            So, what you are telling us all is you are stealing government internet service, since welfare whores like you have to go to the public library to get online. Too f*cking funny.

            Now tranni, you did it again. Every time you start a new suckpuppet you immediately have to respond to it, as if that makes it “legit”, and all it does is show us you are using a new suckpuppet. The funny part? You are such a sad a$4ed welfare whore c*nt you can’t even figure out how stupid you are, you just keep doubling down on yourself, and we all just keep laughing at you. You stupid c*nt.

          • di_da_is_alpha

            You have a BS in history? You should have gotten a BA in economics, then you’d know that if you tax something, you get less of it, and if you subsidize something you get more of it. Why does the government tax prosperity and subsidize poverty? Because it has a ‘big heart”? Hahahahahah. No, it’s because prosperous people aren’t dependent on politicians and the politicians can’t have that, now can they? No they need enough dependent people and useful idiots like you to assure their continued reelections to office.

          • 2hotel9

            This welfare whore is no different from the rest, it has bullsh*t in history.

          • Kidneytheive

            LOL pathetic. You say the same shit all the time and it’s hysterical!

          • Kidneytheive

            at least whores make money. What do you even do? She can’t tell me because she probably has no job. Well? You could always whore yourself on the street corner that may work or just get some rich man to pay for your home and then have a bunch of fuck trophies. It is so funny when people complain about welfare because they never come up with reasons as to why it is so bad. The federal budget does not even account for hardly any of your taxes. And…….. remember people social security is not welfare. I would rather give my taxes to the poor than a bunch of CEOS that will spend the money on buying a new airplane.

        You’re not too bright are you? When you can’t argue the facts you resort to cliches and name calling. I feel sorry for you.

        • 2hotel9

          Ah, now you gonna cry for us, welfare whore. Squeeze out a few tears, we love laughing at that sh*t.

  • 2hotel9

    Poor little welfare whore, talking to itself and still not saying anything. Can’t wait to see what irrelevant sh*t you come up with next. This is fun.

  • Kidneytheive

    oh and the fuck trophies comment was just to illustrate a point. You’re just as much of a whore if you live off your husband than a single mother who does it all on her own. I see them bitching about welfare and they have never worked as hard as a single mom. I have no kids but I have friends that do it on their own with very little/no help from the state. Hey.. and sometimes moms do not want help from the state but I had one friend who was forced to get food stamps or they threatened to take her kids away because her income was too low. She wanted to get off the system but they wouldn’t let her.

  • Kidneytheive

    Again.. obviously you can’t read very well. LOL….. I’m not on welfare and guess what I’m done with this conversation because it is obvious you are uneducated. How is it irrelevant? I think it’s all very relevant. You’re the one with the same comments that are sounding so stupid right now. Well.. I actually have a life so I need to be somewhere but enjoy being a troll. Maybe I shouldn’t egg on the trolls….. LOL

    • 2hotel9

      Of course you are on welfare, otherwise you would not be here screeching endlessly about how you just can’t make it without welfare. Now, comment again, prove to everyone you are a welfare whore.

  • 2hotel9

    Well, ain’t this special?!?! “Kidneytheive” comes up as Crissy with a blank profile page. Hide much, welfare whore?

  • Jcrowley1985

    You obviously don’t know the difference between “government supported” and “government funded”. Just because the government supports something doesn’t mean they are providing funding for it. Go to safelink’s website, if you read the fine print they say somewhere that tax money is NOT being used to fun this program.

    This is more a marketing stunt by tracfone then an actual government aid program. 1.) The only government involvement is that Tracfone uses government records to determine your eligibility, but tracfone themselves provide funding for the program not the government. 2.) Tracfone, by doing this, actually has potential to earn more profit rather then simply providing aid to people in need. By giving “free samples” they attract many new customers who will potentially buy more minutes once their free monthly allotment is used up.

  • 2hotel9

    And yet another welfare whore is heard from.

    • Jcrowley1985

      Where did I ever say I was receiving welfare or participating in this program? You are merely a troll.

      • Jcrowley1985

        And fyi, this is a subsidiary of Tracfone, NOT the government. And I do have a tracfone (that I pay for) and it’s so cheap that it’s virtually free. A 1 year service card costs $100, that’s less then $10 per month. So people on this free program are not saving much.

        • 2hotel9

          Keep telling yourself whatever lies you need to, welfare whore. It is paid for with taxes collected from telecoms. Now lie some more, please.

          • Jcrowley1985

            Now I know you’re a troll. I even said I pay for my phone so where do you get off accusing me of taking welfare? You have just lost any last valid argument your blog may have had.

          • 2hotel9

            I don’t have a blog, welfare whore, so please keep screeching.

          • Cherryallamanda

            Okay. The SafeLink program is funded by the Universal Service Fund, developed by the FCC, in response to the Telecommunications Act of 1996.

            All telecommunication providers are, quarter-annually subject to report their ENTIRE revenue. Based on this figure, they are required by law to give a portion to the USF. It is based on their total revenue, and the need on a per state basis. There is NOT a tax that cell phone users pay that goes to this fund. It is the company as a whole that is required by LAW to contribute to this fund, that not only provides this service, but also provides internet to schools and other establishments. Grow up.

            So really, this doesn’t affect you AT ALL. I’m pretty disgusted by the assumptions, lack of research, lack of empathy, and overall childish, name-calling antics you have so disgracefully displayed. I won’t be back to see your weak reply. In fact let me help you. How about.. “More screeching from another welfare whore!!” Seriously????? You are sad.

            Link! Here you go: http://www.fcc.gov/wcb/iatd/monitor.html

          • 2hotel9

            OK, the Federal Communication Commission and Internal Revenue Service are no longer part of the United States Government so therefore safelink is not funded with tax dollars. Sure, honey. Whatever you welfare whores say.

          • Jcrowley1985

            Where did he say the FCC pays for this program. What he said was that telecom companies pay into the FCC REGARDLESS of whether this Safelink program happens or not. The funds from the FCC go towards services for schools and other public areas, Safelink is not affiliated with the FCC or any government bureau.

            I think what got you all wound up was that Safelink put the words “government supported” on their website, automatically leading you to assume that tax money is funding it. But in reality it’s nothing more than another corporate giveway which is a common practice for many companies to give away free samples of their product. It’s free publicity. Don’t forget that the free provided minutes is a mere 1 or 2 hours each month and receivers of the service might just PURCHASE more cards to refill their minutes if they need more. So if anything, this is putting MORE money in the economy, not taking it out through “welfare whoring” as you call it.

          • 2hotel9

            So, you twirl around in circles tro come back to taxes are collected to pay for this. OK, twirl again, honey.

          • Jcrowley1985

            Quoted directly from Safelink’s website:

            “SafeLink phones are not paid for by taxpayers or the federal government. TracFone Wireless pays for the phones and also the cost of promoting its SafeLink program to make sure that eligible consumers know about the program.”

            Here’s the exact URL: https://www.safelinkwireless.com/EnrollmentPublic/benefits.aspx

            I don’t know how much more black and white I can get.

          • 2hotel9

            Yes. We. Get. It. Taxes are collected and used for this, with a nice pay off to various and sundry Democrat politicians and no few unionscum a$$holes. Please make it clearer, though. Feel free.

          • Jcrowley1985

            Paying off politicians? What are you talking about? What does that have anything to do with Tracfone trying to provide a free service to not only help out those in need but get some publicity out of it for themselves as well. Yes, Tracfone might be getting tax cuts by providing this service to the community, I don’t know, but that’s a problem with the company, not the consumers.

          • 2hotel9

            Please, please PLEASE keep posting. This is entertaining as hell.

          • Jcrowley1985

            Likewise.

          • 2hotel9

            Whats wrong, poptart? Did your welfare funded computer stop on you?

          • http://enigma-cypher.blogspot.com/ Enigma_Cypher

            “What does that have anything to do with Tracfone trying to provide a free service”

            It’s not ‘free’, idiot. The taxpayers are the ones stuck paying the bill.

          • 2hotel9

            Best part? I have a tracfone, cost me $20 at the Dollar Store, $20 to put minutes on it, every 60 days I put another $20 worth of minutes on it. Cost to taxpayers for my tracfone? Zero(0).

          • Jcrowley1985

            Yet tracfone is always know for providing savings on their phones and services. I’m not even on Safelink, and I have NEVER PAID for one of my phones. Tracfone is always giving away free refurbished phones if you purchase minutes. The only expense I have with my tracfone is a $100 per year card that comes to under $10 per month, and I even paid less then that this past year as I bought 2 years of service for $150, effectively getting one year for half price. Meaning that I’ve been paying less then $5 per month for the past year. This is all with regular Tracfone and not Safelink.

            Granted that if you use your cellphone a lot it can get expensive with minutes, but that is not what safelink is, all you get is 1 or 2 hours each month which is nothing.

          • Jcrowley1985

            Read the link 3 posts above this where I directly quoted safelink’s website. They specifically said that tax money is not used. Can’t get much more straight forward then that.

            Do you really understand how little the 2 hours of minutes you get really is? Anyone who using their cell phone on a regular basis would piss through that in a day or two. This would lead to them BUYING more minutes from Tracfone to refill their minutes, leading to more profit for Tracfone. As these customers they just made would not have joined in the first place had they not gotten a “free sample”. It’s just marketing

          • 2hotel9

            Honey? We already been through that lie several months ago. Try something new, poptart, DNC sent out a new talking points memo on this in February.

          • 2hotel9

            Hahahahahahaha!!! You claim to not be on “safelink” and then brag you get free phones from the company you claim is the sole provider of “safelink” Too f*cking funny.

          • Jcrowley1985

            Yea, I got a free phone with purchase of minutes. Point being is that it’s only people on the free safelink service that can save money. Not to mention that I constantly get coupons in the mail for free minutes with purchase of minutes. Am I “welfare whoring” for using those coupons. Because that is essencially what safelink is, only in reverse. With tracfone, you buy minutes and get offers for free minutes. With safelink you get free minutes and get offers to buy more minutes.

          • Jcrowley1985

            Edit to my last post, meant it’s “not” only people on safelink, from the second sentence.

          • 2hotel9

            So now you are bragging about getting tax dollar subsidized phones you originally claimed you were not getting. You leftards always expose yourselves given a bit of time. Have a nice life, welfare whore, since we are paying for it.

          • Eeyore1127

            Have you noticed that she is only doing this to get a responce from people. She doesnt have a clue that another company bought out Safelink because the responce is so great for this product that people have kept the phones & they are making a large profit. But she would know this if she wasnt on here.
            Couldnt sleep so after checking out the tracfone companies i found this page and was astouneded at the pure ignorance of people. It doesn’t take much of a brain to act this way, you know. But what I dont quite get is the time they spend on here Could buy them a ticket to Russia of some other 3rd world country that thinks the way they do. But after tonight I wont be back on here. Im al most to the bottom of this Patton Place.

    The problem is that a lot of them are not only getting land lines but also cell phones. I don’t see the point in both. Also, elderly people I have never had a problem with. They are in such a bind over their poor social security payments that they need help. What annoys me is a lady who is not too much older than me, who is fully capable of working for years and years, even before the economic issues we’ve had, yet sits on her butt and draws welfare off her kids. She has no excuse for not working other than well, she’s getting a free ride, so why should she bother? Another lady that works with my mother received welfare assistance too, but she is also working a job. That person I have no problem with because she is trying to support herself and her children but needed help. I think most people’s issues are with the ones who CAN work, but won’t, and have no medical reasons for why they can’t. There should be a requirement that if you receive it that you better get work when work is available. Otherwise, bye bye benefits.

    • 2hotel9

      Evey time there is any type of requirement to work in order to receive benefits Democrats fight it tooth&nail. Here in PA there is an office which does nothing but fight to keep people ON welfare, they actual use tax dollars to harass who are attempting to leave the system. They use threats to take people’s children and to have them evicted from rental property to coerce them into remaining in the system. Add to that the millions in tax dollars they piss away on commercial advertising to get more people into the system and you see that things like this are simply symptoms of the problem, not the actual problem itself.

    LIFELINE/SAFELINK FACT SHEET

    There is no “Obama phone” or other newly created federal program to provide free cell phones. As you may know, this is a myth that is now circulating on the Web via email and blog sites. It has been thoroughly debunked by independent groups. (See for example: FactCheck.org at http://www.factcheck.org/2009/10/the-obama-phone/, which notes: “Low-income households have been eligible for discounted telephone service for more than a decade. But the program is funded by telecom companies, not by taxes, and the president has nothing to do with it.”
    The federal “Lifeline” program was created during the Reagan Administration. Lifeline is a federal program created by the Reagan era Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in 1984. The program was enhanced under Telecommunications Act of 1996, which was supported on a broadly bipartisan basis in Congress. The FCC’s Low Income Program of the Universal Service Fund, which is administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC), is designed to ensure that quality telecommunications services are available to low-income customers at just, reasonable, and affordable rates. Lifeline support reduces eligible low-income consumers’ monthly charges for basic telephone service.
    Thanks to SafeLink, Lifeline support is now available for wireless phones. Traditionally, the Lifeline program was only available as a discount on a consumer’s landline telephone bill. SafeLink Wireless was created by TracFone Wireless, Inc. when the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently approved the company to offer Lifeline — a public assistance program that ensures telephone service is available and affordable for low-income subscribers. SafeLink Wireless applies the Universal Service Fund subsidy to an allotment of free airtime minutes and TracFone provides the wireless handset at the company’s expense. Instead of receiving a subsidized monthly telephone bill for Lifeline service, SafeLink converts the total amount of discounted service into minutes each month for one year. The cell phone offers in-demand features: voicemail, text, three-way calling, call waiting, caller ID and access to 911.
    SafeLink phones are not paid for by taxpayers or the federal government. TracFone Wireless pays for the phones and also the cost of promoting its SafeLink program to make sure that eligible consumers know about the program.
    SafeLink Wireless is making the vision of universal access to telecommunications services for all Americans a reality. As of October 2009, SafeLink has over 2 million customers and is available in 33 states – Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, DC, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin. Today, there are over 1,700 companies in the United States currently providing discounted telephone service. But, thanks to its extensive outreach promoting SafeLink, TracFone Wireless is one of the largest providers of Lifeline services in the United States, second only to AT&T.
    Only certain Americans are eligible for SafeLink. Eligibility guidelines vary by state but in general individuals qualify if they participate in a public assistance program such as Food Stamps, Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), National Free School Lunch, Federal Housing/Section 8 Assistance, or if they do not receive any of these public assistance programs, they may also qualify based on total household gross monthly income. Customers can learn more or apply by calling 1-800-SAFELINK or visiting http://www.SafeLink.com

    Your exact benefits, including the number of free Minutes you will receive, depend on the state you live in.

    • 2hotel9

      Oh, ain’t that cute?!?! Yet another welfare whore heard from. And it posts under 3 different names. Tell us, welfare whore, did you use that little strategy to rip off the public assistance system?

  • http://www.spyontextmessages.org Alan G

    Interesting… I think the above post pretty much clears up the whole safelink BS. Personally I think that we have much bigger fish to be concerned like Medicare and Social Security.

  • C Tipton2010

    Seriously your blog is a joke. I’m on state assisted programs and I have certain requirements everyweek. Like haveing a job working at least 35 hours. There is no way that you can actually live off the government. Because with state assisted programs you have to re-qualify every 6 months so when you are working a job for 6 months and turning in your pay check stubs every week they know that you won’t requalify…the whole point of these programs are to help you get back up on your feet. But don’t worry I pray like hell you end up on your ass one day with no way of surving and you have to walk into a place to apply for food stamps and housing.  

    • 2hotel9

       And yet another welfare whore heard from.

    wow im 56 working part time  with no skills making 735 an hr having to raise my 3 grankids 11 13 15 sorry i can do more to provide for them having to recieve food stamps an mediaid for the kids maybe i should stop trying giveup and let the state do it all cuz we’re barely making it

    • 2hotel9

      • Deliveredinhim

        you have such a kind and understanding spirit hope you will be happy and productive in your long life

        • 2hotel9

          So, you will just keep collecting welfare and crying. OK, we get it.

  • Deliveredinhim

    o master of all wisdom and understanding how could it be that you were so incorrect my children wont illegitimate but as you should know wise one at a certain age all people choose their own paths  the meth path my daughter has choosen should not dictate her children path as a wise one you should aggree and if i owned all the cattle on a thousand hills as you surely do i would support my grankids as well as other kids in need  but thats not the entire point i do work i pay taxes for the love of humanity dont mate and reproduce you are so narrow minded i fear your kids or grankids would be miserible you must be self-centered an selfish your heart is hard and not able to see the need of others all around you again may you become rich and famous so you will  be forced (by the irs) to pay large amounts of taxes so that you will not have to invole your heart

    • 2hotel9

      So, you will simply continue to collect welfare for housing the illegitimate children of your illegitimate children. OK, we get it, welfare whore.

            What is it about this thread that keeps drawing all these welfare wenches? 

          • 2hotel9

            It is a manifestation of self destructive masochism. They know that what they are doing is morally wrong, no matter that governmental fiction under which they are doing it. So they are driven to attempt to justify it, no matter how bad it makes them appear.

            Practice what you preach sister! try spell check yourself. Ive seen many missed spelled words in your comments. Now me i know i miss spell words so people like you only make me, LOL!!!

      So, what you are telling us is you are out of meth for the night and going to pass out for awhile, then take more of your welfare whore money and welfare whore cellphone and buy more. OK, we get it.

    I am a low income person myself and I have 2 kids and married. I get food stamps and W.I.C. I also have a crap car that breaks down on me. I was stuck on the side of the road for 2 hours broke down waiting for a tow truck that I had to make payments to… and the repairs to fix the car. With 2 screaming kids in the back seat. I got my tubes tied so I would not over do it I only wanted 2 and NEVER expected to be in the place I am. I DO however pray every night to have what I do. I have power, heat, a warm roof in the winter and a cool place in the summer. I have healthy kids. I ask for no more.

    god have mercy on your hatefilled soul. i wouldn’t want to know how afraid you are inside. anyone who hates as much as you has very low self esteem and feels the need to perceive themselves as better than others to feel that they are. you my friend hate yourself so much that you really believe that you are better than others.so go ahead call me obscene names, it still doesn’t change the fact that all of that hatred spewing in your messages is really hatred of yourself, and the fact that you hate those to whom you percieve as getting more than you tells me how angry you are that you’ve never felt that you’ve had your needs met. the fact that you have no empathy for others tells me that you have sociapathic tendencys. you see it’s not really about the cellphone it’s about what a steaming pile of pus you hold inside where your heart should be. by the way i love cats and i feel really sorry that you have any animal in your custody, because you probably treat him,or her with the same vile personality that you have shown here. so call me whatever i really don’t care. why would a name from someone so pathetic as yourself hurt me. bless you, you need it.

    • 2hotel9

      All that bullsh*t simply to spambot an address. No wonder you are a welfare whore, you are too f*cking stupid to do anything else.

  • Stating The Obvious

    I just stumbled onto this blog and, at first, was enraged by the comments made by 2hotel19. After reading through “all comments”..there were so many people trying to have him/her change his opinion.
    The one thing that became evident and stood out is that 2hotel19 is probably just that. Nineteen yrs.old or younger, with a major immaturity behavioral problem happening. You will notice that at no time did he/she have an intelligent argument to contribute in rebuttal to the many fact displaying comments that ensued. That would be precisely because he/she is not capable.

    I surmise that 2hotel19 is just a silly teenager with nothing better to do with their time than to “egg-on”
    a blog group, such as this one; to see what will surface when he stirs the pot…. for pure entertainment value to his/her narcissistic self.

    One would just need to have some sympathy for someone who is as afflicted as 2hotel19.

    Kudos to all the many obviously intelligent people who had very important knowledge to impart to the masses re: the subject matter.

    Thank you for taking your time to do so.

    • 2hotel9

      Ah, ain’t that sweet?!?! Another welfare whore screeching ineffectually into the ether. Don’t sweat it, whore, you will get your free sh*t for awhile longer, Barri is not finished f*cking America. Till then just keep sucking up all those benies since you are clearly not intelligent enough to have a job and support yourself.

      Oh, and learn how to read, welfare whore. 49, 6 years US Army, own my home and property and have for many years. Unlike a whore such as yourself.

            gooder and gooder ?….wtf is that ?..
            try “not” tipping that vodka bottle so much before typing all your “hidden in my house – at the keyboard confidence”….people like you are a dime a dozen online……and all complete losers…..
            Why so bitter ?….daddy beat you up and no one helped you ?…..see mommy cheating on daddy once too many times ?…or maybe just too much rejection in your day …..thus the cry for so much attention on the internet…….
            By the way…..ever notice that you post in here more than any other person ?…….no life ?
            gooder and gooder……*laughs*…that says “millions” by itself……
            add in the devoted Republican to it……and that huge heaping of religion ……
            Yea…classic basket case……..
            Oh…and by GOD….do you mean GOD i.e. Judaism…..or Jesus i.e Christianity ???
            i’m betting hard core Christian……and by saying GOD in reference to Jesus…..
            Well….is putting him “before” GOD……  i.e. = Sin
            But please keep going…..
            I’ve been cracking up for over a month now…….

            I’ll bet you even shop at Walmart quite avidly
            and oh…..
            i’m not on welfare…..
            pay for my on iphone……
            “proudly” pay taxes to help …
            am also a vet….
            I had a brother in law like you once……always had something to say……
            ………when he was drunk or driving away in his pick up truck…….

            It’d be interesting to see who else you take your anger out on when not online……
            spouse ?…..kids ?…..the cat maybe ?……

            just another spineless coward in my opinion…….

            enjoy your right to free speech while you still have it…..

            take a good chug of that vodka before you reply
            (after professional wrestling is over of course)……lord knows you’ll probably need it……

          • 2hotel9

            Ah, ain’t that cute?!?! Another welfare whore screeching its sh*t. That is so original. Now, tell us again how you deserve a free cellphone and that sweet ebt card, welfare whore.

  • Stating The Obvious

    Oh really??????? You are not very articulate for a man who claims to have your background. All of your comments either state”welfare whore”, c*nt, or some other lewd, barbaric, obscene form of name calling.
    People resort to that when they are not capable of expressing themselves any other way. You have no actual facts to support your hatred and contempt for the poor, disabled , and elderly to access telephone service.You just spew venom. Maybe brain damaged?? Can’t waste my time.

    However, just so you know, I  am a graduate (with honors) of Vanderbilt University. I  am a Major and a fighter pilot in the U.S. Air Force. Length of service: 13 years this November. I own a home in California as well as a home in St.Louis, Mo. I support my children (2) without a problem. I have been on 5 separate deployments to Iraq fighting for the freedoms you so enjoy with cynical, overt criticisms of our government.

    God only knows that are far too many areas that are in desperate need of over-hauling but tracphones to the needy is NOT one of them. If you are as smart as you want to claim that you are…why don’t you take up a different cause and put all that emotional energy into something that counts?

    A far as taxpayer dollars are concerned, why are you not “up in arms” concerning the billions spent on a war started by a republican cabinet over false intel by someone nick-named “curveball” and weapons of mass destruction that didn’t exist? Not to mention the thousands on young, innocent service men and women’s lives that have been lost because of it. I have witnessed this tragic loss of life and it is something that continually haunts me and sickens my heart, as it should yours. We won’t even go down the road about Afghanistan.

    Seriously, 2hotel9, apply you efforts and intelligence into something that is a monumental cause.
    And when you do, let me know, I’d like to hear what you have to say about things that are critical.
    I honestly mean that.

    P.S. I am not a whore.

      No, you’re just a welfare wench. Most of us here work for our money. Think about that while my tax dollars are being given to you and your illegitimate kids.

      • 2hotel9

        Yea, welfare whore are obsessed with cleansing themselves of their deep seated guilt through endlessly “justifying” all that they steal from others, so they just keep toddling in to threads like this and spewing their sh*t.  And this latest one appears to be somebody’s suckpuppet. Its style and sentence structure seems rather familiar, along with its self righteous spiel. One of our regular leftarded c*nts. They will give themselves away, seeing as they are not all that intelligent.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_4H7HVGL2JEPCP43S3SALIO5X34 Ringwraith

          Wow! dingwrap the welfare whore found another place to spew its stupidity. Your mommy must be so proud. Well, she would be if she was not wasted away on meth, again.

        • http://enigma-cypher.blogspot.com/ Enigma_Cypher

          If that were true then I wouldn’t be paying for his illegitimate kids.

            We are paying for dingwrap’s illegitimate children, too. Welfare whore is as welfare whore does.

            I suspected that Ringworm had some illegitimate kids too. That’s probably why he’s so defensive.

  • Jolozx2

    I AM A “WELFARE” RECIPIENT, I only recieve little food stamps and much needed full insurance for my children. I do work, therefore, I do not get anything personally, only my kids. I pay taxes and always have.  I was recently offered the phone deal, and why shouldn’t I??Why shouldn’t I take advantage of a free cell phone?? You have no idea how far I make my dollar stretch- robbing Peter to pay Paul, so to speak!!
    The school in our area notifies us with any concerns by atuomated and personal phone calls frequently. It’s harder and harder everyday to keep children on the up n up in school, with all the assignments and issues with safety, bullting, medical emergencies, just to name a few.
    My 12yr old son who previously had a serious head trama has many days when he cannot make it thru the school day due to migraines. My ex mother in law then has to drive 45 minutes to get him from school and then find me to take him to the hospital. Should my 12 yr old suffer thru hrs of preventable pain because I can’t afford a personal phone?
    Also, I miss many chances to get OT at work because I cannot get the call. Hrs which would ultimately assist me in winging off of “welfare” all together! I have had the same job for over 3yrs and I am constantly searching for a better one, but when they realize I am giving a number to contact on apps that is over 45 minutes away, I feel I am over looked for the jobs.
    While I do agree that many many many people abuse the system put in place to help the rest of us when needed, I also feel taking advantage of a free cell phone would be a huge step in progressing forward financially and becoming completely self sufficient!!!!
    FYI i will most likely opt for the 1000 mins for $20 option, meaning it would not be free at all. But I felt the need to way in, afterall, there are other mothers out there who make even less than I do.

    • http://enigma-cypher.blogspot.com/ Enigma_Cypher

      Keep wallowing in pity and self justification if it helps you sleep at night. The real question is why should the responsible taxpayers be forced to subsidize your cellphone needs? They’re not “free”, we paid for them.

    It appears that all people who have or HAD cellphones have paid into this fund. I am no longer working and can not afford the expence for my former $75 monthly plan. Please remember and reflect this in future comments.

    Now we got welfare whore spambots from Australia. Welfare whores are the same all around the world.

  • Denzel

    So much hate on this site.  You should take the time to learn more about the program.  Here’s an official (I think) site:

    http://www.freegovernmentcellphones.net

    You’ll see that it is for those that truly need the help.  And I see from one of their news stories that free internet is coming next. Good!

    • 2hotel9

      Yes, spambot c*nt, you are filled with hate for America and Americans. F*ck you, and your greasy a$$ed whore momma.

  • Arbo

    Bottom line is this…..cell phone (any phone) is a luxury, not a need, no matter what your situation.  Having this tax added to your monthly bill without your consent is wrong.  If I want to give to this type of charity, this is a decision that is up to me, not the government.
