I have 0 problem helping people in need. I think most americans are that way. the thing is the gov't gets in the way, takes our money and does a pooty job distributing it out to those in need.

Great...free cellphones for fishermen with drinking problems and smokes.

That's bound to have ROI.

How do we know he's not a volunteer at the kitchen just taking a pic?

Oh yeah, he's black. Sorry.

You'll note that I said "IF" in my post, I hope.

"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not." Thomas Jefferson

If that only were a true quote from Thomas Jefferson it alone would label that man as a genius.

I believe so, I heard it once on a radio talk show and looked it up because it sounded so perfect. I don't believe it has ever shown up in any of his writings but was just credited to him.

I don't buy a lot of what they're selling... even a deactivated cell-phone, if powered on, can dial 911... so, the premise for this gov't subsidized tracfone service for emergency purposes makes no sense to me

What I found is it's unproven...

"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not."-Unproven! This quote was not found in the Jeffersonian Cyclopedia but several people have attributed this to Jefferson. This is still under investigation.
