I should have known better than to have a large glass of caffeine and go to the store after work. Wired. At least my shopping is done, and I was alert enough to drive.
How did I somehow miss the news/debate over people on public assistance being entitled to free cell phones a couple years ago? #1. I hate the word "entitled", with a passion, which is bad for me because it's thrown around all the time now. I'm sorry, but no you are not entitled to free cell phones because they provide peace of mind, and everyone is entitled to peace of mind. If that were true... I don't know what people expect, aside from everything. The US debt total is stomach turning yet more bleepty bleep is added on, for everyone else to pick up, every day. I doubt I will see what I have been paying into... the social security or retirement benefits my parents did, if at all, but enjoy your free phone as others enjoy their pay checks continuously reducing. * 4 Billion Dollars in 2011.
Don't get me wrong, I am glad assistance is there for people who need it. I think many programs are fantastic, but last time i checked a cell phone does not feed, keep you warm, or put clothes on your back.
