You know, sometimes ....

... you might almost think you have justification for using the N word ....

Update - I just saw figures that show that Obama's Administration has given away 16,500,000 free phones to folks like the lady in this video.  Mister and Missus taxpayer - did you know this?  Did you know that you have been fleeced for that many phones, given away in a vote buying scheme? 

Let's do a little figuring - 16.5 million, times $100 (say for argument purposes that is the cost of each phone and its service - which is probably a low estimate).  That is a billion, 650 million dollars.  Presume there are approximately 104 million people who pay some form of income tax in the country (a rough estimate I've seen in a couple of places, figuring our population times working age times those who actually pay taxes).  That means that each and every person who pays income tax in our country was fleeced for over 16 dollars last year to pay for this bullshit.

Update - Much more information on this ripoff program is coming to light after this video went viral:

Many individuals have been issued multiple free phones.

Many of the phones issued have been 'smart' phones, with the associated internet service.

Normal phone users subsidize this program.  If you see something called a Universal Service Fee on your phone bill, that is money you are sending into this program.

Miami based TracFone is one of, if not the, largest individual company providing these services under contract with the government.  As of the end of 2011, 3.8 million of these free phones were provided and serviced by Tracfone, which in turn received subsidies from the government for each and every phone.  TracFone's President and CEO is Frederick Pollack.  Mr. Pollack has contributed $156,000 to Democrat candidates in this election cycle, including at least $50,000 to the Obama campaign.  Abigail Pollack, his wife, serves as a bundler for the Obama campaign, having raised $632,000 for the Obama campaign in this election, and a total of $1,500,000 to Democrats since 2007.  She has personally donated over $200,000 to Democrat candidates since 2007.  Nothing crooked about that deal, nothing at all ...
