"... It is a right to have peace of mind." Critics of the program say free cell service is no right, particularly in an unstable economic climate.

Free cell phones for the needy drawing both cheers and jeers

Here is a perfect example -

of the type of government waste that must be stopped.

Watch the video of this moocher - It's an example of the entitlement mentality that is bleeding this country dry.

This is where your tax dollars are going...

End welfare NOW! Know what I'm sayin?

Probably...

...because he's from the South and has lived to see the atrocious behavior of many of the ethnic community, which of course is not representative of the whole, as most in said community(ies) are decent, law-abiding citizens. The many ones that aren't reinforce the stereotypes so long established by decades of such behavior (we, of course could digress into all kinds of societal arguments as to why) - not that other groups don't have their ner-do-wells. And to this point, the ethnic community - at least in the ATL area I've come to know in the last 8 years of living here - are equally as racist as any other. They've basically taken the words & teaching of MLK, Jr. and spit on them & his grave. Humans will be humans, I guess - birds of a feather, and such...

Well, I WAS commenting on ptcrightnow's comment about J. Kawfi making racist-leaning comments, but it seems ptcrightnow has edited or removed it...

Remember there is such a thing as "white trash"...I've seen the same behavior from all ethnic groups. It is not exclusive to any one group.

Yes, I did edit my original comment as to why his comment was leaning toward a specific ethnic group. I decided to delete it, because I most likely mis-spoke and it wasn't a racist comment, but I wanted to be fair, since you read and responded. I did write it then withdraw it.

Would hate to see laziness and the entitlement mentality to be identified as something prone to one group or another...let's agree that it belongs to many, among all races, religions and creeds.

Sorry for the orginal post...it was unfair.

Kawfi and cell phones

The constant fear of ultra-conservatives is that somewhere, somehow, someone is getting a benefit that they are not getting.
