Smiles from ear to ear after hearing this!


will bring lots of revenue to local businesses this is a good thing!!


Cuyahoga County handed the election win to Obama!


ONE in every crowd but there is no such thing as an Obama phone. That program as well as many other social programs were in place long before he got elected.


Read your own link. Proves my point.


Did you read the link you posted? First free wireless phones were available during the Bush administration. Lifeline Assistance Program-subsidized landlines-1996- Clinton
Lifeline Assistance program created-1984-Ronald Reagan
Due to the recession, people losing jobs, more people qualified and the program was used by more people during the Obama administration.


Re: "That program,"

Originally intended for landline phones, but like most socialist programs; add more bells and whistles, push up the cost in order to help the Dem's constituency.

Vote Dem - get a FREE cell phone and service!

Keep that cash and prizes comin'! Someone else will pay for it.


Where's the link that proves only Dems have this phone? Where pooh?


Re: "The FCC's LifeLine Assistance program was set up in the '90s to help low-income families with monthly landline bills."

Other than your Obama phone lady, who is so 'eloquent' about the program?

"in 1996 when the Federal Communications Commission authorized the programs for landline phones,"


Keep them FREE cash and prizes comin' and vote DEMOCRAT!

deuce pooh never has any answers. A little wimp who beeches about everything behind a computer.



Who was POTUS is '96, special-ed honor student?


"Originally intended for landline phones..."

-- They didn't have cell phones back then.


Re: "They didn't have cell phones back then."

Sorry Sport, the cell phone has been around since the early 80s.


Not for most people.


Re: "Not,"

True, but that's not the point.

I had a car phone around 1987 and later I bought a Motorola flip phone around '89 or so.


The point is cell phones were not the main way of telecommunicating. Land lines were. Now most people have cell phones and not land lines.
Regardless, you are blaming Obama for something that was started with Reagan and continued since then. I don't understand why are also aren't blaming Reagan, Bush Sr, Clinton, and Bush Jr as well.


Re: "land lines,"

People still have landlines.

Don't care about the history or why cell phones are so popular, what I want to know is:

How did this socialist boondoggle end up expanding into a $2.2 billion program filled with excessive waste, fraud and abuse?

So do you honestly think that the Democrats will kill or would they instead LOVE to expand this program?


You still aren't answering the question about your comment, and instead are trying to answer a question with a question about something else.
I will answer yours after you answer mine.


Re: "You still aren't answering,"

However you want to misconstrue it, Sport.

Have a nice day.


The question was, if you are blaming Obama, why aren't you blaming Reagan for starting the program, as well as Bush, Clinton, and Bush for continuing it?

Dr. Information

The poor shouldn't need cell phones, since they are not WORKING.

Heck, I watched a TV commercial just yesterday and was shocked.

Free smart phone, free minutes, unlimited text if you are on welfare, AND if you can round up another 20 dollars a month, unlimited data............So again, why should the poor get all the bells and whistles for next to nothing and I have to pay over a 100 bucks a month with a limited amount of data.

Abuse and waste. I really don't have a problem with the poor getting a free cell phone but that should be it. No texting, no picture sending, no data. ABUSE.


Re: "if you are blaming Obama,"

A fallacious question. The initial responsibility lies with the FCC and Congress.


It is exactly the point. No cell phone = no Obama phone!


"No cell phone = no Obama phone!"

Reality is perception, Sport.

"Obama phone woman" and others of her mentality believe that she got her free phone from Pres. Obama.

It doesn't matter what YOU think, know or think that you know.

Bleeding heart liberal programs end up ballooning in scope and cost.

$2.2 billion, h*ll, let's see if can be expanded to $5 billion!

FREE smart phones w/ service for everyone - just vote Democrat!

Re: "One bourbon, one Kesslers, one beer."

You're drunk AGAIN, pacemaker boy?


Perception is not reality....Sport! Nice try wrong guy!


Re: "Perception is not reality...."

True; can't read eh, special-ed honor student?


I read just fine. How about you?


Re: "Perception is not reality...." "I read just fine"

Not what I wrote, nitwit.


@ Contango

"Originally intended for landline phones..."
---In 1913 they had cell phones ?

"And believe it or not, there are a few telecommunications experts insist that the Obama Phone program began all the way back in the early 20th century during the Woodrow Wilson administration. "


what in the name of GOD was that??


which shows how damn stupid they are. Obama phones for all!!!! Remember that famous video? Be proud! Very Proud


Congrats to Cleveland! This is very good news!

Perkins Resident

Cleveland doesn't deserve it.


Maybe they should hold it at one of the Motels on Rt. 250?


Hey man, don't you leave out the Mecca Motel. Kind of a shame the "Dusk to Dawn" is gone...such a fine establishment.


Perkins doesn't deserve being within 100 miles of the convention

Perkins Resident

You come up with that all by yourself?


When the Dems chose Chicago in '92, they moved the homeless out and spruced up the area around The United Center.

Wonder where Cleveland's Dem admin. is gonna move all the vagrants and druggies to in order to help give the illusion of an economically vibrant city?

Looking forward to seeing the Occupy Wall Street losers and other extremist Marxist ilk perform their act for the media.


Ranks right up there with the Cavs getting LeBron James back. I can do without either one.

Right you are Contagion - We will be there politely but firmly protesting those war criminals. Where is the International Criminal Court when we need them?


Re: "We will be there politely but firmly protesting,"

Glad to read it! Be sure to put on a fine crafted, looney demonstration for the cameras!

Name calling?

“I do try to be civil here, but not to you. No how, no way - you coward!!”

Always the 'brave' hypocrite eh?

The Big Dog's back

I'm so glad you right wingnuts love Cuyahoga County. Of course the Repubs like going to "corrupt" places. deuce pooh should be proud. Is Chicago next?

I guffawed!


It is so dumb for you to keep going on about voter fraud when it has been proven there was almost none but hey don't let the truth get in the way of your relentless attacks and lies about the President.

All cons do is lie yet they label the President as a liar. WMD? Iran-contra? "Read my lips". Those were lies.

Yes, you can keep your doctor if they accept a much better healthcare plan. That's better for YOU! It's happening!


relax man! try a little humor.. that kool aid overdose affected your sense of humor. sad..


Sure, mikeylikesit , you were just kidding.


im sure not taking this b.s. too seriously..

Close Gitmo?

looking around

Cleveland will believe in global warming after all that hot air blowing around from the GOP. At least the prevailing winds are out of the west generally so the stink may not reach us here. I'd rather smell the quarry.

The Big Dog's back

A bunch of drunken GOPers.

The New World Czar

Rumor is that the new front-runner to host the Democratic convention is Mexico City.

Bottom Line

Best comment on here.

Truth or Dare

No surprise here they picked the state that determined the last election! The paint on protest signs will be dry and ready to go. Wondering if there will be a 35 ft. buffer zone? Looks like I'll be writing in my choice for President, again.


Instead of throwing your vote away , you should vote for the party that has at least a few of your interests in mind.

You WILL be ruled by one of them.
