RE: Georgia PSC reignites the debate over ‘free’ cell phones
Assholes. My lily white mother has one of those phones, because her only income is from her Social Security, which isn't much, and even $5 a month would be a lot to someone like her. She barely even uses the phone because frankly, it's confusing to her - she's more old school when it comes to things like phones, but still, she needs that phone in case of emergencies.
Luckily she doesn't live in Georgia, but these racist pigs that control the state of Georgia are gonna hurt people like her in Georgia because they want to punish the poor who they think are all black, but I have family in Georgia, and I guarantee there's more white people on government assistance than black people, which makes me wonder, why do these white yahoos keep voting Republican?
And another thing that never gets mentioned is people who get these phones get limited minutes, it's not like they can talk for hours and hours every day and not pay anything. She only gets 250 minutes a month, which is about 4 hours a month.
I think what these bigots see in their pea-sized brains is their twisted vision of the stereotypical "Welfare queen" riding around in a pink Cadillac talking on a free cell phone all day - when the truth is these phones go to real people with real needs.
