Update 8/7/13: Some of you are wondering how I ordered my Obama Phone when Assurance Wireless does not offer the program in Montana. I am currently in North Carolina, but I still have a home in Montana. I ordered my Obama Phone from Charlotte – I’ll let you know when/if I receive it. By the way, I ordered this just to prove a point, not to take advantage of you taxpayers!
Why are you paying for a cell phone? Don’t you know that you can get as many cell phones as you want, for free?
Of course we all know that nothing is really free, somebody has to pay for everything, but hey — my friend Barack was re-elected in 2012 because he says it doesn’t matter how much our government spends. Most Republicans are hiding under their desks in Washington, DC, so it is pretty clear that what we buy or how much debt we have doesn’t matter. Our buds at the IRS can just tax other people some more, and if we run out we’ll have our friends at the Fed print as much money as we need, right? Free is good! Get what you can! We’re all Democrats now!
Jillian Kay Melchior of the National Review heard that people in her city routinely obtain for free — and then sell — dozens of “Obama Phones”, courtesy of the taxpayers. She set out to see if it is really that easy to get free Obama Phones. Jillian learned that under Obama’s “Lifeline” program, pretty much anybody who signs up can receive one or more free Obama Phones from one or more cell phone vendors who aggressively seek out participants. There is little, if any, verification of eligibility. Commissioned phone salesmen give away as many as possible and the taxpayers pick up the tab. Jillian got three free Obama Phones without even really trying.
So this morning I web-searched “Obama Phone”, and here is the number one listing:
I filled out the Assurance Wireless on-line application, providing my name and address, and indicating that I would prefer to communicate in English rather than Spanish. I checked a couple of boxes, answering with complete honesty, and then printed and mailed my application. Can’t wait to get my new free Obama Phone, along with 250 minutes and 250 text messages per month, forever! What a deal! It should be here in a week or so, I’ll give you a call when I get it.
I do feel a little bit guilty, knowing that you taxpayers will pay over $2.4 billion for phones for me and Barack’s other friends this year. You know, I still get an e-mail from Barack or someone in his office every day asking for $5. Here’s the one I got today:
I should probably send Barack a five-spot today, as a thank-you for the cool phone. Happy Birthday, buddy! What a guy. Why would I vote for anyone else?
