Free Cell Phones and Cars…WTF?!?!

Posted: June 24, 2009 in Uncategorized

I just became aware of this ludicrous program that gives free cell phones to low income individuals. What the fuck?!? Since when did cell phones become necessities? God knows how the hell we all managed to survive in the days before cell phones. I know it’s hard to believe, but I know people who still do not own a cell phone. They just don’t feel it’s necessary. I believe that landlines are necessary in case of emergencies; however, I also believe that if you can’t afford to pay for your phone then the only number you should have access to is 911. Maybe that’s what should happen with this cell phone give away crap too. If these idiots really think that cell phones are necessary then give them to the people who can’t be bothered to purchase them themselves, but restrict the service to 911 calls only. Now these people will have their precious cell phones to use in case of emergencies. But once again, cell phones are not necessities.

And now let’s move on to the topic of giving away free cars to welfare recipients. You have got to be kidding! Whatever happened to actually having to work for what you have. I agree that cars are very important, and I would have a difficult time managing without one. However, that being said, I could still manage to survive without a vehicle. It wouldn’t be easy, but it could be done. Plenty of people do it every day. There’s this wonderful thing called mass transit. And while it may not be as convenient as having your own vehicle, it does get you from point A to point B. So while owning your own vehicle is the optimal choice, it’s not a necessity.

Maybe we should all quit our jobs and live off the government. We can get free housing (Section 8), free food (food stamps), free medical insurance, free dental insurance, free cell phones, free vehicles, and free cash every month (welfare). Damn, sounds like a great plan to me. Too bad I have morals and integrity and decide to actually provide for myself. Maybe more people should try it. We as a country would be in a much better place.

    I completely agree. I think if something is a necessity for emergencies, then 911 is it. OR, maybe being allowed to call other numbers for emergencies (i.e., family) but then having to pay for that particular call. I mean, if we are talking true emergencies, they shouldn’t happen too often and someone should be able to pay for a call here and there (at the standard rate of 40 cents a minute)–keep it short and sweet when you have an emergency! It’s very frustrating to work hard to make money and then to see a lot of people who don’t work, get the money for things that you pay for (like cell phones and cars). Great post. Keep them coming. They make me think!
