The Obama-Phone Is Back - But This Time It's Real (CA phones for homeless)
ZeroHedge ^ | 12/11/2012 | Tyler Durden

While some saw the clip of the lady implying 'victory for Obama means phones for everyone' as perhaps exaggerated out-of-context right-wing propaganda - as that would be preposterous right? - it appears San Francisco took it a little more serious. As SFGate reports, the California Public Utilities Commission is expected to approve (within a couple of weeks) a plan to offer homeless and other poor people in California 'virtually free cell phones and service'. The plan is funded through the federal LifeLine program and is designed to enable these individuals to 'keep in touch with family, potential employers and others crucial to improving their lives'. "This is great - it is transformative for homeless and low-income people," said San Francisco's head of homeless initiatives, adding that, fundamentally, to be in the mainstream of our society you have to have a phone."

Another ZeroHedge story, another CA debacle.

Free stuff for takers. The good stuff for government workers.

And for the rest of you?

Well, if you complain I'm sure the state is busy setting up some reeducation camps.

Liberals desperately want the homeless to remain homeless. To keep them homeless, they do things like writing books on dumpster diving, giving them brand new shiny shopping carts, and now brand new working phones.

It’s been ‘real’ for several years - at least where I live.

I think Tyler was saying that some, especially in the liberal punditariat, claimed that 0bamaphone lady was just “right wing propaganda,” - not that Tyler himself believed it to be so.

Cell phone networking chat should help kill some of the time between those annual job interviews.
