Gee, now I feel good about my cable bill that goes up almost every month. "It's for the children", after all.

Somewhere, Khrushchev is laughing.

Have at least one child receiving free school lunches through the National School Lunch Program

So getting one thing for free means you automatically qualify to get MORE ADDITIONAL things for free? WTF?!

I understand the basic moral incentive which makes people want to work and have a better life.

But I really worry that the next generation won't understand that incentive at all. Work?? Why? What's the point?

The Obama Federales demanded and intimidated Comcast into doing this. On a 120$ cable bill for TV+internet you get $9 in taxes tacked on. Some of that 9$ is providing virtually free internet to these anchor baby families, baby-mama families with five kids from five baby daddies etc etc

If you get just internet from Comcast it is $42/month for low speed internet which this $9.99 deal must be. I’ll be shocked if it is for the real hi-speed deal

You don’t think Obama has a (strong) hand in this? Didn’t Comcast just buy NBC? Obama and Immelt are buds.

Almost every kid in the government schools gets a free lunch. This is going to cost the paying Comcast customers a fortune.

Why would the parasites even think about looking for a job when they have millions of tax slaves to buy everything for them?

THE OBAMA-TRONS JAMMED COMCAST and now Comcast is going to jam you and me
________________
.
.
.

As part of its merger with NBC Universal earlier this year, Comcast is required to provide 2.5 million low-income households with high-speed Internet for less than $10 a month; computers for less than $150 a month; and digital literacy training, according to the Federal Communications Commission.

A program launching this week in partnership with the Comcast cable provider seeks to change that. Families with children who qualify for free school lunches can sign up for low-cost, high-speed Internet, buy a computer at a discount and take free Internet training.

“Access to the Internet is akin to a civil rights issue for the 21st Century,” said David Cohen, Comcast executive vice president. “It’s that access that enables people in poorer areas to equalize access to a quality education, quality healthcare and vocational opportunities.”

“Access to the Internet is akin to a civil rights issue for the 21st Century,”

Anything the democrat scroungers want is now a civil right, and it's the slave laborers who have to provide it for them.

Starve the beast. Free the tax slaves. Let them find their own jobs for a change.

Last year the school had us fill out the Free Lunch Eligibility form. We do NOT qualify. We noted that. Signed it. Turned it in.

Then they said we qualify. We told them we do not. Wouldn’t take it. MADE them take us off the list.

Wonder if they’ll do it again this year? Follow the money.

Free lunch, free cell phones, Section 8 rent assistance, food stamps, discounted cable ... where does it end?

Every cell phone user is subsidizing the free cell phones and you can bet that Comcast is building the cost of this into regular subscribers’ fees.
