Shelters already have land line phones and I never heard of a rape in a actual shelter.

Using liberal logic, we should get government issued guns since it is a right and not a want.

I’m an upper middle class guy. I can’t afford a Barrett 50 caliber with a BORS system and a nightforce scope like those rich guys can. I should be able yo get one too, since it’s a right!

If liberals looked at the second amendment like they do other things they would demand special subsidies so welfare recipients could buy high quality firearms and have public shooting ranges.

How about some ammo stamps!

lol people who live in city shelters are homeless people, they don’t spend all day in a shelter, theyre not even allowed to.

any cell phone can call 911 even if theres no plan or minutes on it.

most of those cell phones are free, donated by the public to police departments.

egg on your face.

Demi-God Ronald Reagan started this program back in 1984. It’s called the Lifeline Program. Safelink Wireless is just an extension of this.

and this program is not supported by federal or state tax payer dollars. Its payed for using funds paid into the Universal Service Fund by telecommunications companies.

Theres a line item in your cell phone bill called USF. Not all cell phone companys pass this cost onto their own customers.

If yours does and you object to this, you can always change providers.

You’r wrong. http://www.universalservice.org/about/universal-service/

Currently, all telecommunications companies that provide service between states, including long distance companies, local telephone companies, wireless telephone companies, paging companies, and payphone providers, are required to contribute to the federal Universal Service Fund. Carriers providing international services also must contribute to the Universal Service Fund.

Since all the phone companies are charging their customers for this it’s more like a tax. A cell phone is a privilage not a right. When cell phones first came out I didnt have one because it was expensive so I just had a regular phone.
Oh yeah, what about Boostmobile and Tracphone??

i guess he has egg on his face now, doesn’t he? and just because Reagan signed a bill it doesn’t mean it was right. I love Reagan, but he did some things I disagree with. It’s the amount I disagree with that makes the difference.

Yep, same with pay phones. I just don’t understand how something can be concidered a necessity when it was even around 15 years ago. food, shelter, clothing. These are necessities.
