They will have to make Iphones and Ipads available through the ObamaPhone system I guess
That’s the most misleading headline I’ve seen so far this year.
This sterling example of welfare-state citizenry doesn’t seem to understand that the device requires a wireless AP or a cellular data plan to access the Internet. Wonder who’s going to pay for that?
no,she was jailled when she tried to run out of the store when her ebt card was declined. that’s shoplifting.
If only taxpayers reacted the same way to the IRS. After all, as we have seen with the Democrat and RINO sanctioned foreign invasion of the country, if everyone does it it's OK.
She was arrested for assault and leaving with the merchandise. Headline is misleading.
Gee, let’s see: there are already Federal programs to give free broadband Internet and cellphones to the “poor,” so I guess YOU will be paying for it...
I see a beer summit...
Didn’t have room for the entire headline. Take a look at the link.
Santa gave her EBT-Giftcards and she was just turning them in for iPads....I don’t see a problem here...
maybe she has wifi at home?
Ignorant, worthless b**ch.
Technically, the headline is correct. It doesn’t say that she was jailed FOR trying to buy the iPads, just that she was jailed AFTER doing so. So, misleading, but not inaccurate.
Ten bucks the clerk she assaulted was a white woman.
Didnt have room for the entire headline. Take a look at the link.
I was thinking the same thing. Oh well, the year’s still young. I’m sure the geniuses writing headlines for the MSM will amaze us many times more.
Back in 2006 when I was a supervisor at a Texas Workforce Center, I was giving away free laptops with software and one year of free Internet to our food stamp clients.
