Team Obama trying to unring the Obamaphone
obamaphone.net ^ | dead

Posted on 10/02/2012 12:09:22 PM PDT by dead

Up until the viral video of Obamaphone Lady appeared (“Keep Obama in president, you know!”), the webpage at obamaphone.net was all about how President Obama was giving all the poor people free phones. As if he was paying the bill, rather than us.

But now that the Obamaphone Lady has been exposing the program so effectively as a vote-buying giveaway to hate-filled societal leeches, the Obamaphone.net page has changed completely.

Guess what?! Obama has nothing to do with it! As you might expect, it’s Bush’s fault, at least partially. The webpage that previously bragged about how much Obama was doing for the leeches, now says it was a program under Bush, that was started under Clinton in accordance with a law passed by FDR after an agreement with the phone companies was reached by Woodrow Wilson. I’m not making that up, see for yourself. The new Obamaphone.net webpage was slapped together in the last few days, obviously without an editor in sight. It reads like a Chinese take-out menu for very happy family to you of good health for light!

Many people think that Obama is giving free cellphones to the poor in order to redistribute the wealth of rich people. Since then two groups are mudslinging at each other... But the Obama part is not true as Obama didn’t initiate this program. It’s on the run since the administration of Reagan… It started back in 2008 when Trafcone started their service under this program at Tennessee. At the same year Obama was elected President but Trafcone began their Safelink service three months before which means the program was discussed and approved by Obama’s predecessor Bush. So now you know that there is nothing called “the Obama Phone”! The president actually has no real impact on the program so it shouldn’t be called “Obama Phones”. The Lifeline program for cell phones was actually started under President George Bush with grants from an independent company crated under president Clinton.

The changes have dishonestly been backdated to December 2011 to pretend it has nothing to do with the Obama Administration running away from the program they used to brag about. Unfortunately, I can’t find the original obamaphone.net page that gave all the credit to Dear Leader. It’s been wiped clean. Even archive.org’s Wayback Machine has been scrubbed!

With my limited skills, I have been unable to find an archived version anywhere. If any of you can, please post it to keep Obama in President, you know!

great, thanks.

In the Sept 15 version, text sums it up: “So now you know that there is nothing called ‘the Obama phone’.”- but then EVERY SINGLE LINK, top and sides, all still used “Obama phone”: Obama Phone Signup, Obama Phone Questions, How do I Get an Obama Phone, etc, and [my favorite] Who Pays for the Obama Phone? — DOH!!

Nothing was showing up just now when I went to Obamaphone.net — which is not surprising, since there is “nothing called the Obama phone”.

I did not know that George W. Bush middle name was “William”, as the text promotes If they are going to blame the guy, at least get his name correct.

Incredible! These pages were up and down in a heartbeat, all at the same URL!

““During the Bush administration, there was the introduction of a project that gave subsidies to those who could not afford a phone.””

Was it called a Bush phone then? Anyone know? I never heard of it.

I saw the pine cone, too. The blog format site had a rotating image at the top, and when I grabbed it there was the steering wheel. Can’t believe the William Bush line. Odd choice of stock photo selections, lol. I guess they didn’t pay much attention to the template under such “pressure” to distance.

The new site also tells curious readers that the program is not paid for by taxes, but by fees collected by the phone companies from paying phone users because the government demands it

By this logic, if I hold a gun to your head and tell you to give my wife all your money, I didn't rob you! And technically neither did my wife - she was just standing there when this non-incident occurred!

Tell me again, how these people got to be our "leaders!"

It may also be that they finally noticed the copy they put up was completely unacceptable.

In addition to being a grammatical car wreck, the idea that they were pushing responsibility back as far as Woodrow Wilson really made them look silly.

They want to keep Obama in president.

"George William Bush"? Close enough for government work.

If Romney wins, he will be the fourth Republican President in a row to have one of his names start with W--but none of them had a William in his name (Wilson, Walker, Walker, Willard).

Join the club! Today, when I first logged into this thread, there was a link to the "new" text at the site, obamaphone.net, which was a blog format including the reference to a George William Bush. This was the replacement site. Then, within minutes of my screen grab (with the steering wheel graphic) they changed it back to what is there now which is the original page they had earlier scrubbed!

Just think! The “fees collected by the phone companies” helped to pay for the Spanish-American War (1898), and they finally got it paid for just a few years ago! I guess that’s when they switched to using the fees to pay for “Obamaphones.” So, in essence, we are still funding a war paid for by phone fees. This time, though, the war is against us.

Here’s the thing.... Crawled versions of the website (e.g. archive.org/wayback machine cached pages) were not necessarily scrubbed. They may have never existed depending on the coding of the page to begin with (you can tell all bots that will listen - archive.org being one of many that do) not to crawl your domain or certain pages if you like (bots.txt and robots meta tag). I tried explaining this (with references and such) to another freeper a while back, but ran into a wall of denial by that person. If you would like, I can attempt to find that discussion so you can see the citations I made with all the pertinent info.

Here’s two citations off the cuff:

Question: Why does the "Free Obama Phone" have to be a cell phone? Why couldn't it be a free landline phone? Much cheaper for those of us paying for it. No features, including long distance, needed as the "free" phone is being marketed as a way to make "emergency communications." You don't need call waiting, caller ID, etc. if you're just calling your neighbor or 911.

FWIW, I do not have a cell phone and probably never will.

” “free” phone is being marketed as a way to make “emergency communications.”

Any cellphone will call 911 without a contract. Emergency calls is just a smokescreen. If you spend 250 minutes on 911 calls a month you probably ought to think about going to a safer neighborhood.

There was no robot.txt file associated with this page - I checked. It is caching the index page and all related subs. I was able to locate caches of all linked pages appropriately. They existed, but the domain was crawled again, for some reason, by all three of the primary SO’s on 10/2. All three search engines showing up on the same day when there are billions of pages to crawl?!?!?

TracFone Wireless Launches SafeLink Wireless(R) to Aid 812,807 Low-Income Households in Tennessee

    Participants Receive Over an Hour of Free Talk Time Monthly and
                       Free Wireless Cell Phone
NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(Business Wire)--
Today, TracFone Wireless, Inc., America's leading prepaid cell
phone provider announced its launch of SafeLink Wireless(R) in
Tennessee. SafeLink Wireless will serve as the company's distribution
of Lifeline - a U.S. government supported program for income eligible
households that ensures telephone service is available and affordable
for eligible low income households.

   The SafeLink Wireless service will provide eligible low-income
households a free cell phone, mobile access to emergency services and
free 68 minutes of air time, monthly, for one year. The cell phone
offers in-demand features: voicemail, text, call waiting,
international calling to over 60 destinations and caller ID.

   "Over 812,000 households in Tennessee qualify for the Lifeline
services - offering these participants the opportunity to have the
same access and privileges many individuals take for granted when it
comes to using cell phones," said Javier Rosado, Senior Vice President
of Lifeline Services for TracFone. "The SafeLink Wireless service is
truly unique because we are providing a service that no other company
has made available before - a free cell phone and free monthly minutes
to qualifying low income families," added Rosado. SafeLink Wireless
offers low income families accessibility, freedom and the security in
knowing that should an emergency occur - wherever they are, they will
stay safe and stay connected.

   Economic opportunities for low-income households

   A recent study ("Cell Phones Provide Significant Economic Gains
for Low-Income American Households," April 2008) analyzed the impact
of mobile phones on low-income households. "In this day and age, the
cell phone should be deemed an imperative necessity for the millions
of low-income families who are far less likely to own them," said
Nicholas P. Sullivan, the study's author and visiting scholar at
Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "Our study showed cell phones
can significantly boost the earning potential of these communities,
and this connectivity vastly encourages their opportunities and
remains central to their everyday survival," Sullivan stressed.

   The study also revealed the cell phone is a critical component for
personal safety, access to emergency services, and can potentially
increase a low-income family's economic productivity and earning
power. Other relevant survey findings included:

   --  Cell phones provide a "security blanket" and are "extremely
        important" for "emergency use."

   --  A cell phone is preferred to a landline phone for mobility and
        security purposes, and is preferred to a landline phone for
        emergency use by 3-1 ratio.

   --  48% have used their phone to call or text during an emergency
        situation.

   --  20% have received an emergency call or text on their cell
        phone.

   --  32% have purchased a cell phone for a relative to use in
        emergency situations.

   --  40% in blue-collar jobs say their cell phone has provided the
        opportunity to gain employment or make money.

   Daily, millions of Americans depend on mobile telecommunications
for a wide range of basic activities including: calling emergency
services, searching for employment, staying connected with loved ones,
and much more. Yet, for people who cannot afford cell phones, being
part of today's connected world and performing these crucial
day-to-day needs is near impossible.

   Typically, families living below the poverty line struggle to pay
their monthly bills, experience credit issues, and cannot afford
traditional home phone and wireless services. Using public pay phones
regularly pose problems and cell phone contracts often are difficult
to maintain due to costly usage charges over long-term agreements. As
a result, regular communications is a major dilemma for these
families.

SafeLink Wireless

SafeLink Wireless provides a free cell phone and a limited number of voice minutes each month for low-income-eligible families (one per family) who do not use Lifeline services offered by any other phone or wireless company. It is funded through the Universal Service Fund that almost every US taxpayer contributes to via their existing land-line and wireless service provider, but is only operational in a limited number of states.[4][5] It is similar to the Lifeline and LinkUp government subsidized service for home telephones.[6] Applications for service may be done via their web page, or by having them fax or mail an application form. No choice of phone handset is provided by the application process. Additional minutes over the free monthly benefit may be purchased. As of May 2011, Safelink Wireless had almost 4,000,000 subscribers,[7] the largest Lifeline cell phone provider in the United States.
