Breitbart ^ | February 16, 2013 | Lisa De Pasquale

We've all heard about the free Obama phones. A friend was recently looking for a part-time work and found this listing on Craig's List [note: the "DMV" refers to DC, Maryland, Virginia]:

Actually, you are very perceptive. How better to get a flash mob together, or to mobilize people to help Obama and the Dems.

Destroying the country with our own money. The Left has it down to a science.

This program should be sequestered.

This is exactly what you would expect from the Baraqqi regime.
Progressive ideology with Chicago political mob horsepower.

It’s really a brilliant move on their part, and we get to pay for it every month on our phone bills.

I wish I was one of them people who could sign up an Obama voter. I’d record EVERY phone number, compile a list and then anonymously mail that list to the DHS, CIA and NSA that says the following:

This is a list of suspected Arab Terrorists that have been seen using these phones to collaborate on some sort of terrorist action. They need to be investigated immediately.

I just wouldn’t tell them that the “terrorist action” is that they’re a bunch of blood sucking, snake belly leeches who aren’t worth the food or air they use up.

not surprising at all. Worst part of this, is that these phones are typically re-sold on the black market, as throw away phones. My daughter encountered a student at her University who had a bag of these phones she was reselling, as no one in her family needed the free phones, they all had nice cell phones.

These obamaphones have been advertised on cable channels for quite a while now. I forget what they are called but the ad says you can get one of these phones if you are receiving food stamps or medicaid. the actors are all blond women and their children.

FIFY. The FLEAs aren't going to lift a finger going after Arab terrorists but they will investigate a bitter clinger.

Disgusting, but only the tip of the iceberg, I'm afraid.

"not only are taxpayers funding free cell phones, we're also paying for street teams to hock them at hospitals, soup kitchens, carnivals and shelters."

I moved to TX in June and immediately started recieving mail ads for a free obamaphone and I still am getting them. They must target everyone because I don’t recieve anything from any gov’t agency, I figured it was the phone companies.

My cell is just a plain talk and text phone, mostly used for work-I can’t afford one of the fancy ones, but some welfare queen can get one?

At the risk of being pedantic, does no one who writes articles consult a dictionary? I think that if someone is going to “hock” phones, they would be taking them to a pawn shop. If they are hired to peddle them on the street/in public places, they are going to “hawk” the phones...

from the article: So, not only are taxpayers funding free cell phones, we’re also paying for street teams to hock them at hospitals, soup kitchens, carnivals and shelters. Apparently a cell phone is now a basic essential, like food, water and shelter, that is so necessary for a person’s survival it must be provided for those who can’t afford it. What’s next? An Obama car? An Obama computer? An Obama iPad? An Obama Espresso machine?

I hate to tell them, but I have a neighbor...”disabled”....he got a FREE IPAD....the government pays for his marijuana too!

I watch a series some nights on Telemundo, and those phones are advertised there, too. The actors all have light coloring, and are prosperous looking there, too.

They are running TV ads for this here in Tucson. The government is totally out of control.

These free Obamaphones are great for the terrorist community. Welfare queens can get multiple free Obamaphones and sell them to terrorists, which will put a red herring on the trail.

If you live in a terrorist-friendly area, like Michigan, this could be a big income opportunity. Genius stimulus plan!

And, I’ll bet that the DNC is copied on every phone number assigned to each of these phones, for the get out the vote free bus ride to the polling place!

In an emergency, the cell phone will alert authorities to the location of your body.

Self defense is not an acceptable option......

Don’t get mad at Obama, he didn’t fund it, he only used the funds that ARE GIVEN TO HIM BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES WHERE REPUBLICANS ARE IN CONTROL. Spending is happening because REPUBLICANS are giving the OK rather than cutting off the funds. Time we started yelling at the so called “right” people...pun intended.

Progressives that they are, they really should strive for more diversity in their casting. E.g.: youtube.com/watch?v=rOOzCSXEihc

Yes I have seen the obamphone woman. She is absolutely correct, sign up for a free phone provided by obama or I should say, provided by us.

By any chance, did someone have their cellphone camera handy so that some video of this occurrence can be viewed?

No, the Obamaphones aren’t iphones, they are tiny, dinky phones for calling and limited texting

Hey this is a guaranteed cell phone company subsidy. Face it big check from government and no people to hound for unpaid bills.

I’ve seen these phones advertised on TV. In one news report (can’t remember which one) a woman opened her purse and had several free phones inside and proudly said that she had MORE at home. What better way to mobilize obama’s civilian army...or whatever it’s called.

Texting...didn’t know they had that. This means Obama can text his troops using that emergency notice from the gov thing. Why can’t people see what is coming?
