>>>>This program allows people who are using certain government assistance programs to help keep in touch with the person that they care about the most,” Allie said.

Looks like a way of buying votes and making dependency on a government handout. Obama and Axelrod must have came up with this one. It brings the term low information voter to a new low.

She says now, Obama lied to her.

And she said that Obama was planning to take away their guns..all guns.. So, a few months ago, she said Obama was a liar.

Funny thing is that the district has a tea party conservative representative, Kerry Bentivolio who replaced Thaddeus McCotter.

How else are you going to get the middle class communists out to protest. After all, Livonia isn’t exactly “the hood”. Just take a look at home prices in the area, they’re all over the place.

Bunch of crap of how the person who works for a living has to pay the way for a lazy person as they take from someone else. Anyone running in/out of that store there should be protested to ridicule for taking freebies that others paid for. Most people like to donate and help though this is just flat out ripping others off and making dependency to their government vs self reliance.

I can't honestly say I've been to Livonia, but I did find this: According to a 2010 American Community Survey, the median income for a household in the city was $65,391, and the median income for a family was $77,119. Males had a median income of $62,071 versus $42,083 for females. The per capita income for the city was $29,536. About 5.4% of families and 7.8% of the population were below the poverty line, including 15.6% of those under age 18 and 3.8% of those age 65 or over.

A lot of Irish and Polish Catholics still there. That’s McCotter’s and Mike Cox’s home. It’s still one of few areas in Wayne County that often votes for a conservative (social more than fiscal)

Recently someone in our church heard that CHURCHES are also eligible for Obama phones. Apparently the rules are that the church can be issued one, but not a person like the pastor or minister.

In some ways that's better than my little town (township). We make less money but have fewer poor.

The median income for a household in the township was $49,167, and the median income for a family was $55,221. Males had a median income of $45,756 versus $29,625 for females. The per capita income for the township was $20,488. About 6.9% of families and 6.6% of the population were below the poverty line, including 3.3% of those under age 18 and 14.2% of those age 65 or over.

It's my understanding the Lifeline Assistance\Safelink program has drained the USF and it's now in the red.

"Congress has mandated that all telephone companies providing interstate service must contribute to the USF. Although not required to do so by the government, many all carriers choose to pass their contribution costs on to their customers in the form of a line item, often called the “Federal Universal Service Fee” or “Universal Connectivity Fee”."

btw...."taxes” are ultimately going to América Móvil,(Safelink) a Mexican phone company.br

Does anybody remember when it made one ashamed to be on welfare/have a child outside marriage/not take care of your family/have men by multiple men/have an abortion, etc.?

I guess the word SHAME should be next on the list for the Assoc. Press. Hurts self esteem.

The thing I find most amazing about technology, is that things that didn’t even exist within the 100,000 years of humanity up until 25 years ago somehow become things that nobody on the planet can live without, and it is especially unfair to the poor to not have them.

I’ve never made a call on my cell phone. I carry it with me in case of emergencies but haven’t had any. The only calls made on my phone have been when I’ve handed it off to someone else to make a call.
