Democrats Want to Give Out Free Internet

145

It seems the list of “essentials” is growing longer by the day. Once upon a time, liberals were happy to have the taxpayers pay for poverty-stricken Americans to access food, medicine, and housing. Conservatives have never been crazy about the social safety net, but we went along with it. Not even fierce individualists could turn their backs on children who didn’t get to choose where they were born. And even the most successful Republicans understood that everyone encounters hard times.

But today’s welfare goes far beyond the necessities. For years, the poor have been taking advantage of the “Obamaphone,” letting employed Americans pay for their cell service so they don’t have to miss out on the latest gossip. But the FCC has been thinking. And Chairman Tom Wheeler, fresh off his massive net neutrality victory, thinks it’s about time we make the internet free for those who don’t have enough money for the fastest speeds.

Wheeler’s proposal, unveiled Thursday, would expand the controversial Lifeline phone program to cover what’s being called the “digital divide” – the line between those with internet access and those without it. He wants the FCC to extend the monthly $9.25 low-income household credit to cover broadband internet access starting at 25 megabits per second. One would assume that these subsidies would be paid for in the same manner as Lifeline is funded now, which is through a surcharge on consumer phone bills.

Beyond the Breaking Point

Republicans will oppose this proposal, of course, but the fight over net neutrality proved that the FCC isn’t easily swayed by congressional arguments. Lifeline is already rife with fraud, but don’t expect that to stop Democrats from playing Robin Hood. This is another vote-buying measure meant to reach out to Americans who contribute nothing to the economy.

Unfortunately, most Republicans have lost the will to fight welfare on a principled basis. We rarely hear conservatives get up and preach the values of hard work and the importance of rising out of poverty. Instead, they attack these bills and proposals on the basis of their implementation, as if there is any good way to provide free internet access for millions of layabouts.

Only a fool would claim that internet access is equivalent to cable TV or video games; society has changed enough so that the inability to access the internet is a significant hurdle to overcome. That said, free internet already exists. It can be found at nearly every public library, and you can’t throw a rock without it landing in a free Wi-Fi zone. Many major ISPs also provide limited internet access for people from low-income households. It may not be lightning-fast, but it’s good enough to check email. Or, you know, browse the local job listings.

Where does it end? At what point do we say, ok, that’s enough? Do we owe poor people free transportation? Do we owe them free movie tickets? Free weed? Maybe instead of making it easier to live like a pauper, we should leave some incentives for people to make something more of themselves.

    Of course the DEMS want to give FREE internet. Thats what they do, FREE,FREE,FREE let some other sucker(who is still working) pick up the tab.

    1. Karen says

      When will this all STOP? Continue to reward those that chose NOT to work? We working people who “JUST GET BY” need to quit working and live the “GOOD LIFE” at least we will have money left over to do our nail, hair and get tattoos! I wonder who will pay for all the FREEBIES then?

      1. pineapple says

        “When will this all STOP?” It will stop when there are no jobs to be had. See the following article.

        19 Signs That American Families Are Being
        Economically Destroyed (See #16)

        Submitted by Tyler Durden
        on 04/09/2015 Submitted by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog,

        The systematic destruction of the American way of life is
        happening all around us, and yet most people have no idea what is happening.
        Once upon a time in America,
        if you were responsible and hardworking you could get a good paying job that
        could support a middle class lifestyle for an entire family even if you only
        had a high school education. Things weren’t perfect, but generally almost
        everyone in the entire country was able to take care of themselves without
        government assistance. We worked hard, we played hard, and our seemingly
        boundless prosperity was the envy of the entire planet. But over the past
        several decades things have completely changed. We consumed far more
        wealth than we produced, we shipped millions of good paying jobs overseas, we
        piled up the biggest mountain of debt in the history of the world, and we kept
        electing politicians that had absolutely no concern for the long-term future of
        this nation whatsoever. So now good jobs are in very short supply, we are
        drowning in an ocean of red ink, the middle class is rapidly shrinking and
        dependence on the government is at an all-time high. Even as we stand at
        the precipice of the next great economic crisis, we continue to make the same
        mistakes. In the end, all of us are going to pay a very great price for
        decades of incredibly foolish decisions. Of course a tremendous amount of
        damage has already been done. The numbers that I am about to share with
        you are staggering. The following are 19 signs that American families are
        being economically destroyed…(Look at #19)

        #1 The poorest 40 percent
        of all Americans now spend more than 50 percent of their incomes just on food and
        housing.

        #2 For those Americans that
        don’t own a home, 50 percent of them spend more than a third of their incomes just on rent.

        #3 The price of school
        lunches has risen to the 3 dollar mark at many public schools across the nation.

        #4 McDonald’s “Dollar Menu
        & More” now includes items that cost as much as 5 dollars.

        #5 The price of ground beef
        has doubled since 2009.

        #6 In 1986, child care
        expenses for families with employed mothers used up 6.3 percent of all income. Today, that figure is up to 7.2 percent.

        #7 Incomes fell for the bottom 80 percent of all income earners in the United States
        during the 12 months leading up to June 2014.

        #8 At this point, more than 50 percent of all American workers bring home less
        than $30,000 a year in wages.

        #9 After adjusting for
        inflation, median household income has fallen by nearly $5,000
        since 2007.

        #10 According to the New
        York Times, the “typical American household” is now worth 36 percent less than it was worth a decade ago.

        #11 47 percent of all Americans do not put a single penny out of
        their paychecks into savings.

        #12 One survey found that 62 percent of all Americans are currently living paycheck to
        paycheck.

        #13 According to the U.S.
        Department of Education, 33 percent of all Americans with student loans are currently
        behind on their student loan debt repayments.

        #14 According to one recent
        report, 43 million Americans currently have unpaid medical debt on
        their credit reports.

        #15 The rate of
        homeownership in the U.S.
        has been declining for seven years in a row, and it is now the lowest that it has
        been in 20 years.

        #16 For
        each of the past six years, more businesses have closed in the
        United States
        than have opened. Prior to 2008, this had
        never happened before in all of U.S.
        history.

        #17 According to the Census
        Bureau, 65 percent of all children in the United States are living in a home
        that receives some form of aid from the federal government.

        #18 If you have no debt at
        all, and you also have 10 dollars in your wallet, that you are wealthier than 25 percent of all Americans.

        #19 On top of everything
        else, the average American must work from January 1st to April 24th just to pay all federal, state
        and local taxes

      2. George Cahonna says

        When will it stop? When The majority of us gets off our rears & does something about it. Starting with, we have had enough of this crap!!…”The Democracy will cease to exist when you take from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.” -Thomas Jefferson-

  2. Standandfight says

    Why not I love my tax money to spent on good sound projects. Like making scumbags parasites faster on the internet.Or better yet take it off their food stamps so maybe I can get some relief on my grocery bill. After all when the government[taxpayers] is paying for it no price is to much.

  3. carlton goodson says

    Lets not do free but the price could come down some for all not the lazy.

    1. Standandfight says

      It’s a nice thought but have you ever seen it happen.

      1. Bob Marcum says

        DDDDUUUUUUHHHHHHHHH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
        Listen-up. Dipshits; The internet has always been free, since it was first established.
        DUuuuuuhhh

        1. Francisco Machado says

          Advertisements pay for the internet content. The cost of the advertisements is included in the cost of the retail product sold. The consumer ultimately pays for the internet. There is, of course, another aspect of “free,” meaning unbounded by regulation, but the government is working hard to take care of that.

          1. Bob Marcum says

            Yeah, Francisco; the advertisers pay for the enternet, as a business expense.
            But; keep in mind, ” NOTHING ” is ever free ( entirely ). Someone must pay.
            But; understand too, the only reason, the fed. gov’t. would EVER pay for
            anything, is to get legal grounwds, to CONTROL. That’s why they furnish welfare. That’s why they pay for public schools. That’s why they pay for any
            of the mutitudes of things, they pay for, obuma and his liberal cronies, simply use that fact, to it’s extreme. He has been looking for any kind of method, he can find, to get control of the intyernet. Now; he’s decided, it’s time to own it.
            That would, of course, get him the leverage, to shut-up anyone, who happens to speak, disagreeably, about him or his dictatorial methods.

          2. Kent2012 says

            gave a sarcastic reply about your other comment…sorry you are right on…

          3. Kent2012 says

            bob thinks he is being really cute…access to the internet requires a gateway…that costs…you might go down to the socialist watering hole at starbuckos and log on for free, but your overpriced crappy tasting coffee bill pays for it..just saw his latest and it is spot on…now during the next election the ho clintoney and the ho warren and the ho sanders can give away computers…got to have something to go on line with…

        2. Standandfight says

          It might be free but it costs me a lot to look at it.

        3. Standandfight says

          And their is nothing free dipshit.

          1. skipsart says

            Good call Standardfight. There is no call for Bob Marcum to speak as he does.

        4. skipsart says

          Knock it off !!! You must be a Lib to attack people like that.
          Time to grow up………..!

        5. John McGowan says

          Don’t want to appear dumb, but why do I pay about $50 a month for it? That isn’t free to me. And no telling how much it will go up when it’s free for the poor people. And they are talking 25 megs speed. I am lucky to get 3. We will pay dearly, we pay dearly now and O wants more.

  4. Standandfight says

    So this is what Al Gore had in mind when he invited the internet.

  5. Irene Elizabeth Grooms says

    You see now what the democrats are doing they want for these people to jump to their side of the track and vote for them how evil can they get.

    1. Standandfight says

      Is it evil or stupid?

  6. Francisco Machado says

    I decry the misuse of the word “free.” Subsidized would be far more meaningful, and taxpayer or wage earner subsidized even more so.

    1. Standandfight says

      That’s correct I agree 100%

    2. James Moe Morency says

      100% subsidized is free. Words don’t change the outcome.

      1. Francisco Machado says

        Perhaps you could explain the inherent contradiction in your statement? I believe “subsidized” means that someone has paid the cost, and if someone has paid the cost it is not free.

        1. Kent2012 says

          moe may have been thinking the way those folks were when they lined up outside of Cobo hall….they said they were there for some of kenyan boyo’s “free money”

        2. Linda Shelton says

          The people who receive it don’t have to pay for it, so for them, it is free.

        3. 1badland66 says

          Paid what cost? Unbelievable!!!!!!!!

        4. Higherstandard13 says

          Stop calling things subsidized for that is the word they use to make it sound nicer… the parasites are on another for of welfare… welfare… I do not care about their feelings … if you can make them feel bad enough they may get off their lazy rears or even end themselves… either way we stop paying.

      2. skipsart says

        As the advertisement states: “If your neighbors’ are paying for it, it isn’t free.”
        Also, the Government does not produce any product what soever. They get all their money
        (“their money” being an oxymoron) from “We The People”
        Understand?

        1. James Moe Morency says

          i don’t know why you felt compelled to post that here, you are preaching to the choir. i was explaining to that idiot who was trying to tell me i was wrong for saying 100 subsidized. he said subsidized meant free, i said only if it is 100%. you can have fractional subsidies. And, yeah, there is no such thing as “Their money”, it is all our money, and i for one am pretty pissed about having no say in how it’s spent.

          1. skipsart says

            You said “100% subsidized is free” So it sounded to me as if you thought it was free.
            I may have misunderstood what you meant but the statement sounded like you meant it was free. I was just saying the it is not free as we are paying for it via the Gov.

            I’m glad I misunderstood your meaning then.

          2. Dolores Wieland says

            I also must have misunderstood James’ remarks. It wasn’t worded very well

      3. John Allen Dickinson says

        It’s not 100%. Read about the program instead of parroting Fuchs News.

        1. James Moe Morency says

          read the headline of this story ^ “Democrats want to give out free internet”. not parroting anybodies news, i read the headline of the friggin story.

        2. Higherstandard13 says

          You whom think they should get it should pay for it out of your pocket … I will subsidize them if they take 100 lashes each month for every dollar they take.

    3. 1badland66 says

      Your economic ignorance is mindboggling.

    4. Higherstandard13 says

      No, the tax payer is the slave of the parasites collecting the freebies. They take the fruits of our labor and we are not allowed to say no to the masters.

    5. Higherstandard13 says

      t is like Obamacare… some people are have to pay 150% to 300% the value of the policy so the parasites do not have to pay.

  7. Carl Stevenson says

    I’m sick and tired of paging for the lazy people’s food, housing, health care, illegitimate kids, booze, drugs, big screen tv, cellphones, and on and on and on, so that some lazy democrat tyrant can buy their votes with these handouts.
    Society would be much better off if the lazy were allowed to starve, die of exposure, and stop breeding more lazy people to sponge off of the rest of us who’ve actually done something productive with our lives. And, if they riot and loot when their freebies are cut off, I have NO problem shooting them in self defense.
    Now, I’m not saying we shouldn’t help the very small minority who are too sick or feeble to care for themselves. I’m saying it’s time to end the gravy train for the lazy, where welfare and making more illegitimate babies has become a multi-generational family “business.”
    People who refuse to even try to support themselves should be allowed to starve. They are a blight on society. AND, they should NOT be allowed to vote in crooked politicians who promise to steal from the productive and redistribute the loot to them in exchange for their votes.
    I don’t give a rat’s ass how “selfish, cruel, and insensitive” the leftists call me.

    1. Dennis Derstine says

      Amen brother!!

    2. pineapple says

      I could not have said it better!

    3. donemyhomework says

      Agreed

    4. bdcorvette says

      End the freebies and watch how fast the unemployment figures, both real and as fudged by the feds, drop.

      1. J_R_K says

        I’m sure that would be after the riots.

        1. bdcorvette says

          2d amendment is riot insurance for anyone interested in defending their property.Amazing how much a single shot will focus the attention of a group.

    5. Victor Archuleta says

      Carl, you’re none of those things. The Bible teaching is clear – I Thessalonians 3:10: …”if any should not work, neither shall he eat”.

    6. bayman61 says

      What they do now is, the daughter goes out, gets pregnant and then does not take care of the child. Then the mother adopts the baby when it is taken from the daughter and then gets welfare for each and every baby the daughter pumps out. The grandmother claims she does not want to lose her grandbabies and gets to adopt them. I heard of one family and I am sure there others, that gets well over 3000 a month for the babies she has so far. They always find a way around the rules. Especially the one that says welfare will only take care of one baby. It says nothing about adopted babies. That’s why you see older women walking around with babies you know they did not have because of their age. This needs to be stopped. Plus do you think a black woman in the welfare office will turn down another black woman that comes in for welfare? Hell no, they will not. They do not want to be know for going against their own kind. Blacks abuse the system from each end.

      1. steve crawford says

        “bayman61” check your stats and stop spreading lies about Blacks only on welfare.
        White 38.8%
        Black 37.2
        Hispanic 17.8
        Asian 2.8
        Other 3.4
        Black Americans unemployment rate is twice that of Whites, schools funds and after school centers are cut in all the major black neighborhoods. Illegal immigrants are hired for many jobs, rather than hiring Whites or Blacks. Sadly the homeless rate for BLACK US MILITARY VETERANS is very high. Now, I agree with you on NO FREE INTERNET for welfare recipients, and cut the cell phone usage to 4 hours per month. Welfare payments should be for ONE CHILD only, and the women must get an IUD inserted. All women seeking welfare MUST submit the name of the fathers of the child for possible child support, no name no support. The Cell phone and Internet companies are behind this BS Freebie.

        1. tommie says

          You fail to realize that, while 38% of welfare recipients are white (usually poor, school drop out young mothers) however, whites also make 60 plus % of the (legal) US population. Percentage wise, blacks disproportionally make up the welfare numbers.

          1. 1badland66 says

            Liberals don’t care about the true facts because it does not support their socialist agenda.

          2. david b cordick says

            damn, tommy, i just wrote the same thing above your comment, didnt see yours becasuse every time i see those stats thrown out, i only see red. glad to see others feel the same way.

        2. david b cordick says

          steve, i gave you a thumbs up for all of you comment except one part. you quote the stats of who is on welfare which are correct, except you left out one important fact. whites on welfare are the largest number correct, blacks are second by only one part, correct. but blacks are only about thirteen per cent of the population, i might bed wrong by a bit of the per centage of their part of the population. but when they are so close to being the top welfare group, while being a small part of the overall population, that stat is really unfair. just my opinion.

    7. Ira Radnick says

      Right on! Every quarter between IRS and NY state income tax estimated payments we are required to pay as successful business owners I get to see yet another 6 figure set of checks leave my pocket to make life easier for some lazy slobs who do just fine enough on welfare to have no incentive to get off their cans and look for a productive job. Every time I stroke those checks the words from obama resonate in my head, “Those who make more should pay more.” To some degree I do not disagree, but when I see how our tax money is both wasted and used to further leverage our national debt it is hard to not become (re)infuriated and frustrated. Those of us who work hard are losing our own nation. And within my lifetime, despite how I vote. So sad.

      1. david b cordick says

        ira, that quote from obama is pure bullshit, those that have more have worked for it, so why should they have to support those that have done nothing.

    8. Jack says

      YOU GOT MY VOTE,,

    9. Glatik says

      Wish I could give you 10 thumbs up for your post. So tired of just being a cash cow with no rights. All I am good for lately is pay taxes to furnish freebies.

  8. John McGowan says

    We will run out of money at some point to support the free programs. I have read that some have as many as 4 or 5 obamaphones. All these programs are corrupt and able body people set on their butts on our dime. Is there any end to the Democrats free programs. That is like keeping people in the cotton field. No reason to work. They are buying votes no matter the cost to the tax payers. The Democrats re so power hunger that’s unbelievable. And the sorry ass Republicans let it happen.

    1. fred says

      We have to clean house John, starting with TERM LIMITS-one term all offices, Federal and State. It will only happen with a national referendum vote, the COS initiative appears to have stalled, big surprise there, they knew it would kill their careers as “politicians for life”, so they killed it!

      1. Higherstandard13 says

        People not paying their own way and paying income taxes should not have a right to vote. Why should those whom do not contribute have a right to say how the tax dollars collected are spent?

        1. fred says

          I agree 1000%. If people don’t have “skin in the game” they should have no say in anything to do with taxes or spending, or who gets to make those decisions! I will go one step further than income taxes (which should be abolished in my opinion!) and say that whether or not you pay property taxes should determine whether you may vote on ANY property tax issues, and if you don’t pay Property taxes, no vote! Income taxes were imposed in 1913 as a TEMPORARY measure and were to “sunset” a few years later! Then Roosevelt imposed them again at higher rates and made them mandatory with a SS card, and its been downhill for OUR rights as income earning citizens ever since! Have you seen the massive escalation in SS % lately? That is just CRIMINAL action by the people in DC!

    2. guest says

      We need to drug test those takers of our money. Makes me angry that we have to be drug tested to work, but the takers do not have to be tested to take what we worked for.

      1. Ira Radnick says

        I totally agree.

    3. 83ragtop50 says

      We ran out of money several years ago.
      Obama has just made it such that it will Bush was bad, but e virtually impossible to get out of debt.
      It may be time to just refuse to pay taxes and let them attempt to lock up all of us.

      1. danny kimbrel says

        I said that same a few years ago and people thought i was nuts but like i said “they can’t lock the entire country up”

    4. John Allen Dickinson says

      And you read about the few cases. But, the program started under Reagan, not Obama.

      1. 1badland66 says

        Why do liberals have to lie to get their point across?

    5. dragon lady says

      hallelujah!!!

    6. Linda Shelton says

      Some states are starting programs that you have to volunteer for x amount of hours at something. That is only for childless people but it is a start, one state I read about had almost 10,000 people drop off the welfare/food stamp rolls, and go to work. If they had to work they might as well get paid for it. Now if all states would follow suit, but I know as long as we have a democrap in the governors office, it won’ t happen in WA.

      1. Higherstandard13 says

        I do not care if they have a child or not for they did not ask my permission to have it and I should not have to support them or their child. Anyone getting this that is not truly disabled should have to report and dig a ditch 10 to 16 hours a day and then fill it the next day. It would not take long that they would stop demanding our dollars and work a regular job. Oh, this process is 7 days a week so they get no days off.

    7. Higherstandard13 says

      I left Virginia and six figure job because I was tired of the welfare state. There was a black couple with two kids. They were in their early 20’s, neither working, each had new $20K plus autos and between welfare, housing, food stamps etc… were getting $3800 a month. There were proud of it and showed the numbers. My daughter with a degree, graduated 3.95 out of 4.0 and works 50 to 70 hour work weeks does not make that…. this is what is wrong with the country. I say tell them to work or face deportation.

  9. Dennis Derstine says

    What else do I have to pay for? Just another tax on the middle class. Nothing wrong with helping someone out, but damn!! Do something for yourself.

    1. Higherstandard13 says

      No more safety net unless it is beyond doubt the person cannot work. I seen mentally handicap people hold jobs at McDonalds etc… and some were employee of the month on more than one occasion. I say forget all these lazy parasite scumbags. If their family will not help them and their friends and neighbors will not, then maybe that says something about their evil, immoral, lazy a$$. Let them die off. Many of these parasites collect more than disabled vets.

      1. Dolores Wieland says

        Yes..and it’s sad that a disabled vet who fought for us live under standards that the lazies have

  10. scott says

  11. ddearborn says

    Hmmm
    What this tells me is that the powers that be are now confident in their ability to censor and/or control virtually all internet content as the need arises. Not only does this mean they no longer consider the internet a threat to their power and control via free dissemination of information, they believe that the internet, like the TV before it is an effective tool to control the general population. Given the mass exodus of TV views this new venue is vital to their maintaining a stranglehold on the masses. Thus barriers to service will remain low.

    This is also the reason why they outlawed small public internet providers controlled LOCALLY. They quickly realized that maintaining their grip over thousands of local providers would be nearly impossible. And to stave off the rising demand by the citizens for creating these local providers in response to out of control cost plans by the majors, they will at the least give the appearance of “free” access.

    The internet is dead. Long live the internet!

  12. James Moe Morency says

    Yes, by all means, let us pay for their porn now!

    1. Kent2012 says

      yes but first the socialist/communist that will run on the democrapo ticket have to start handing out computers to potential voters, much like the “free phone of 2008…and the “preprogramed” little things will have been set up to “talk to headquarters”….oh almost forgot, they will be bi lingual…

  13. william g munson says

    You know they gave away these phones and then they have their votes and that how they stole the last election and now they want to steal this one by free internet and when they get it they will say you can vote by the internet or phones and God forbid when that happens and they have two and three or more phones and how many could vote again on the internet NO I D REQUIRED YOU KNOW THAT WOULD BE RACISTS

  14. CrazyAuntJane says

    Free weed! Now that’s an idea that would buy some votes!!!
    My elderly cousin on oxygen and with a colostomy had a cell phone for a time. She needed one and it allowed her to live alone with a way to call for help if she needed help. The rest of it is nonsense and I could debate both sides as to whether or not this is appropriate but it is certainly cheaper and more humane to allow her to live in a low rent apartment than to put her in an institution. (BTW she’s also schizophrenic and stays on her meds.) Much cheaper than prison or an institution.

  15. william g munson says

    RIGHT NOW YOU HAVE TO HAVE A I D TO GET INTO THE SERVICE OF THE LIBRARY AND YOU CANNOT WATCH PORN BUT THEY DON,T BLOCK IT IS THAT AMAZING DON,T BLOCK JUST TRUST THAT YOU WON,T DO IT

  16. Standandfight says

    We need to go back to the Constitution If you’re not a property owner you cannot vote. Apparently the system is set up against people that want a little more out of life and willing to work for it.

  17. American says

    I wonder what I’m waiting for. I keep thinking someone’s going to show up and clean up this mess. The reality is that no one’s going to just come along and clean up this mess. It has to start with us. We need to force it. We need to elect like-minded people into our government and make our voices heard. Elect conservative Republicans in 2016; those that show fiscal responsibility and are willing to take on the welfare state. Also address it at the State level; the state is often where reform is first enacted and grows. It’s not good for those participating in the welfare state, and it’s not good for the rest supporting the welfare state. On a related note, a group you might want to consider supporting is the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste – they,are trying to make a difference, although not particularly focused on the welfare state..

    1. Kent2012 says

      the chinkees are itching to clean it up…the rooshans will help if the slopes start the shooting…

    2. Standandfight says

      Good luck with that. Government is a family owned and operated business since 1865.

    3. glenn398 says

      With 50% now receiving some kind of government handout don’t think there is enough votes left to overcome this insanity.

      1. John Allen Dickinson says

        Yes, my social security is a handout. BTW, it’s not 50%. Social security and VA benefits are not handouts.

        1. glenn398 says

          No your social security, VA benefits or medicare are not handouts we paid for them weekly from our paychecks and our time serving our nation.

    4. rivahmitch says

      You’re delusional. The problems go well beyond remedy by ballot.

      1. American says

        Do you have a recommendation?

        1. rivahmitch says

          “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants”… Thomas Jefferson. Ultimately, you will have only those things for which you are willing to kill and die. Those unwilling to kill and die to retain their rights, freedoms and property will surely and deservedly lose them. Lock and load or prepare to enjoy your serfdom or dhimmitude. Sooner or later they will come. Semper Fi!

          1. American says

            I tend to agree that that time will come. I’ve never felt that way before these last few years under Obama, but it seems plausible at this point. However, this is an action of last resort; we should try within the system until it is clear that the system has failed us and is irreparable..

          2. rivahmitch says

            When my country was at war in Vietnam, I enlisted in the Marine Corps and went. For years, I’ve attended every meeting of my local government and spoken at most, I’m active in our local, state and national political committees (no longer will support the National) and I’ve supported individual candidates I find worthy wherever they may be and I don’t intend to stop. However, as those who vote for a living now (at least) equal those who work for a living. I’m pretty much convinced that we’re there.

          3. American says

            I hope not, but could be. What’s your take on Jade Helm 15?

          4. rivahmitch says

            Rehearsal for them… Conditioning for the citizens.

      2. John Allen Dickinson says

        Yes, indeed. That’s why as a liberal I am armed. The day the Christofascists attempt to establish a Christian theocracy is the day the second amendment comes into play.

        1. rivahmitch says

          I’m personally more concerned about the fascist/socialist/communist/racist totalitarians currently infecting our government but any form of fascism or any variant of totalitarianism deserves resistance.

        2. Higherstandard13 says

          So you are a fascist or Nazi … you hatred of Christians make you have more in common with Dems and ISIS.

    5. John Allen Dickinson says

      If the Republicans would get down to the business of the country instead of cowtowing to the social conservatives who are obsessed with anti-gay stuff, abortion, etc., perhaps things would get done.

      1. Higherstandard13 says

        Your no different than the Dems… you want us to pay for crap and do not care about integrity, honest, or morality as long as you line your pockets.

  18. fred says

    When will the mentally deficient get it through their heads that NOTHING is free! When will the “giveaway” programs stop using my tax dollars and mysterious budget numbers? NEVER! Guess who they want to have their free internet? Dumbocrats and others on Entitlement programs! first the illegal potus gave them Phones with MY tax dollars, now internet?, what a criminal the clown prince from kenya is!

  19. Dave says

    So you just *know* that the next thing will be that the screens on Obamaphones are too small for meaningful Internet access, and we’ll have to buy them all new computers. And then replacements every three years or so.

  20. JIMBO says

    Just what we need, more free stuff. More government control. Leave it to the Liberals.

  21. Ironmike4610 says

    I don’t want ANY of their “free” stuff. I wouldn’t vote for a damn democRat, no matter how much they gave me….

  22. Len Tippett says

    All the politicians are in favor of spending taxpayers money any way it will buy them a vote to allow them to personally steal more money to put in their own pockets. The only way this madness will ever end is with another Revolution. Sad but true. Pray for America.

  23. Patriot47 says

    Let them define how they will fund this latest brain-f4rt.

    1. Chris S. says

      i’d sort if agree on let them define how they will fund the idea..I could think of at least three…stop being the world’s police force which would also have the side benefit of having those soldiers back home with their families where they should be …or we could actually enforce the corporate tax rate and turn the money to this free internet access idea..or we could fund it by doing both

  24. RolandF says

    Great source for the terrorist to access the net and recruit more minions to attack this country. The democraps are bound and determined to destroy this country in any manner possible.

  25. TPS12 says

    Every time dems give out free stuff people on fixed income lose.

  26. guest says

    Is there anything else these spenders of our money, can come up with to separate those of us who work from our hard earned money? Folks, they are using OUR MONEY to be elected, and it’s time for this madness to stop. WE NEED TO DEMAND THEY STOP THIS BUYING OF VOTES WITH OUR MONEY. Net Neutrality already sucks. America seems to have a plethora of people who do not mind taking what other people have earned.

  27. Alleged Comment says

    People must be taught from small fry time that NOTHINGS FREE! In fact it can mean quite the opposite in real life.

    Hidden fees, jacked-up cost, tax increase, inflation, etc., and that free is costing you much more if it wasn’t free.

  28. The_Random_Sample says

    Free Internet? Next thing you know, they’ll be advocating freedom of expression! This must be stopped!

    😉

  29. rmwayne says

    Nothing is free. These commiecrats want to steal from the ordinary American taxpayer to pay for free internet for their ‘base’. And we all know damned well who their base is.

  30. Sue says

    Both DemonRats and Repukians love to spend money they don’t have and certainly isn’t theirs to give away. If America has such an excess of money to be handing out free stuff maybe we should take a look at the tax code and quit playing Robin Hood while taxing the working class to death and using those taxes to support lazy people while our infrastructure crumbles. Taxes are supposed to be used for those who pay taxes – not to advance the lives of those who don’t pay taxes. This is an f’ed up system the crooks in D.C. invented to supposedly help the poor, when it’s been nothing but a scam to steal from people and control those who they give free things to. They devised this plan to enslave everyone and take away people’s rights through income taxes, property taxes, licenses, sale’s taxes, utility taxes, state taxes, and the list is endless, by screaming we need to help the poor. There are poor people who work their behinds off while lazy ass freeloaders live better by not working, have free phones, free housing, very low utilities, and pay no taxes. What the hell is wrong with this sick system? It’s not the system that’s sick – it’s the corrupt, evil, diabolical politicians who created this system and people went along with it.

  31. Paul Brown says

    Gee, it is funny because I don’t have much but no body gives me anything for free these days. Where are these programs for people who are struggling to make ends meet because the demoncraps keep raising the taxes and the insurance the internet the phone companies and electric and gas companies. We pay higher and higher prices at the pumps everyday now and Osama the Islamic pig terrorist dictator has been hording trillion of barrels of oil everyday in Oklahoma and has run out of space so he has been building another place to put the oil. What is he hording all this oil for, is he starting his own country or maybe going to sell us the oil later at such a high price that no one will be able to drive anymore. In the mean time, we paid for this oil with our tax dollars and what is he planning for, another civil war, well that will be coming soon enough, just like all the ammo and guns he has been buying lately. What kind of war is he planning? He has enough to go to war with a hundred counties for the next fifty years now, what have we allowed this country to become under this assholes dictatorship the last 7 years now?

  32. Dutchman Barry says

    Here’s What Maggie Says On This Subject…………..

  33. RMCSRET says

    The only question that I have is this cost being levied on the DNCC for the cost of this FREE INTERNET?

  34. MILES E DRAKE says

    Free weed and free movies are coming, but the immediate goal is a telescreen for every citizen, a government-provided or -controlled source of propaganda and means of surveillance. Those of us who are about to be targeted by the asset-seizing she-Holder for “right wing” social media statements need to do whatever is necessary to tear Obammunism out by the roots in 2016, then start looking for another country or for a Franco or a Pinochet for this one if necessary.

  35. Charlie says

    Socialism has historically brought every nation that has wondered into the depts. of socialism to obscene out of control debt . Socialism can not work , for socialism is financially unsustainable therefore socialism will always fail .
    Tyrannical politicians use socialism to gain personal political power . Socialism is used by tyrannical politicians to control populations of said nation . Socialism has been used in to conquer nations ; example Hitler used socialism to conquer Austria .
    The socialistic programs being used and proposed for use in our nation have / will knock our beautiful great nation further toward ruination .
    High speed internet , cell phones , unrestricted abusive usage of the food stamp program ( have watched beer & cigarettes purchased with Benefits card) . High speed internet , cell phones , beer & cigarettes are not necessities of life . Socialism is an evil tool used by unscrupulous tyrannical politicians to control the citizens of said nation / nations . Politicians that promote socialism are tyrannical , citizens that promote socialism are either ignorant or just flat out stupid .

  36. sturgis says

    If the POS in the W.H. gets his way, the illegal immigrants will receive the same luxury. And, guess who pays? It’s just another bribe to get the ignorant vote, and control the internet.

  37. MAHB001 says

    Makes sense, Google is firmly under the control of the Democrats. He who controls the data, controls the people.
    Note that Google colluded with the Chinese Government to completely erase the Tank Man of Tienanmen Square from Chinese history. I guess that was just a dry run for the United States and the Liberal Progressives that want to turn the US into a socialist state.

  38. bayman61 says

    And we all know who will get the free internet.

  39. canurelate says

    Just an opportunity to “CONTROL” internet content. Will go hand in hand with Net Neutrality which the FCC is proposing to turn the now free internet into a public utility thus opening it up to government control. Kinda like “If you like your healthcare, you can keep your healthcare.”

  40. Mac Boy says

    Sure … just plug it into your 0bamaphones, you LIB Lickers !!!!!!

  41. ed28 says

    I got rid of my land line and now I will reduce my cellphone footprint dramatically. Another day under the oppression of the Obama regime another tax with redistribution at it’s root.

    I am ashamed over what Obama has turned my country into.

  42. donemyhomework says

    You know, I don’t see who wrote this article. So I looked to Wheeler’s Proposal and found what I would consider to be a synopsis of the proposal. I’d rather see the whole proposal to determine where this article’s author got the “Free Internet” part of it. I don’t see any evidence of that. I did see mention to a portion of the synopsis referring to “Bolsters Universal Service Fund Support to Title II of the Telecommunications act of 1996. See https://apps.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DOC-331869A1.pdf
    I’m going to need a little help here to connect the dots as to how the Democrats are going to propose giving out Free Internet.

  43. adrianvance says

    Everything they say is free winds up costing us more money. Witness college and health care!

    Google “Two Minute Conservative” for brevity.

  44. WC Fisher says

    NOT ONLY NO! BUT HELL NO! Ihave payed for it and THEY CAN TOO!!!

  45. John Allen Dickinson says

    The Obamaphone was started under Reagan’s watch. Obama just changed it to cell phones due to technology reasons. And, it is subsidized, not free. Meanwhile, Lockheed Martin continues to leech off taxpayers with the F35, which the Pentagon says it didn’t need.

  46. ProfessorPBZ says

    FOR ONCE I AGREE WITH THE DEMOCRATS.

  47. ONLYJB1 says

    They might as well. It goes along with the free cell phones. The poor need to stay in touch, just like working people! Now, where will the money come from to pay for this? The first thing I have to get my mind around is the fact of where are the computers going to come from. LOOTING?

  48. codycollie says

    Absolutely. In the WILD, like the Ghettos, death is Natures Way of CULLING the HERD!

    If the Demonrats want to give away free stuff let them and their STUCK ON STUPID voters pay for it out of THEIR own pockets not OURS. Do Americans know that these people are the MINORITY in this Country and are controlling the rest of U.S.?

    Whatever happened to “The Majority Rules?

  49. dragon lady says

    I am sick and tired of the give aways being proposed and instituted by our Congress. They are breaking the backs of the working.
    It would be nice to hear that the members of Congress have come to their senses. If they don’t, we will end up with no “Middle Class”….then how will the government pay for all the freebies?

  50. ralph says

    Because the democrats are muslim terrorist and have the desire to destroy America thinking that this will make them stronger but it will wind up obama in charge and them murdered by him. Just like the government of Iraq was set up by obama and they are in poweer to hand weapons over to the enemy. We should be working with the kurdist of the north

  51. ralph says

    This country is working on taking every thing out but the problem Obama and his army of communist cazars

  52. J_R_K says

    I think the end results of the Democrats free programs, what they hope to accomplish, is to make the dollar valueless by making every thing free. I mean, when every thing is free, what’s a dollar worth? The Democrats remind me of a farmer my grandfather told me about years ago who had a jackass almost trained to live without eating, but it died.

    I think it’s very appropriate that the Democrat party emblem is a jackass.

  53. cathylovesyou says

    O’Kkkk Democrats, please enter my name for free internet, I am White Anglo Saxon and have a pretty good nest egg. I have been paying for all the freeloaders and illegal’s for years it is about time your gave money to me even though our country is broke or just spending money on entertainment for all government workers. Ah those Democrats really know how to spend a buck. FRIVOLOUSLY

  54. shamu9 says

    Translate this as, “Give the Recipient Race, EVERYTHING, That Working Whites Have, Free. Then they’ll leave the Democrats Alone when the Revolution Comes”! The only reason the Boons need Cash, is to buy Dope ans ’40’s!

  55. Harold Sammons says

    Hey the Demoncratic people know if they give away the internet they can spread propaganda more easly!

  56. Shauna says

    Can you imagine the Obama phone lady online? 😉

  57. The redhawk says

    HECK next the HEADINASS POTUS will want US to pay for Free Internet to ALL of CUBA, they may live in a hut with No Computers nor water nor Electricity but hey…it is ODUMBO isn’t it???

  58. Bob Stewart says

    Why not? Democrats already give out free phones, free computers, free housing, free food, free utilities, free income, free child care, free education, free meals, and earned (?) income credit. What can free internet hurt? Good way to buy votes.

  59. Sean Rickmin says

    When is obamas free stuff to the freeloaders going to stop.Nothing is free unless your a DEADBEAT.I think that the responsible people that work for a living know what the densocrats are doing,BUYING VOTES,and I don’tknow of any way that these bottom feeders can be beat as long as these freeloaders continue to live off of the American taxpayer.SHAME on you freeloaders,and shame on you democrats for doing whatever your anti American president says.All of my presidents were Americans and loved this country,not so obame,he’s disgusting.

  60. Margaret Longoria says

    I pay for my internet access and always have. This service should NOT be free especially if it is going to raise the rates of those who pay for this service. Also, the free cell phones should be done away with. People need to be responsible for their own well being. Stop this type of wasteful spending. Revise the EBT or food stamp program as well. Require work for welfare programs.

  61. Robert Z. says

    No drug test no welfare fail and it”s over. After the first child you don’t get to double dip and so on. You a cell phone get a job you want to wear air jordans get a job. If you have a car then no welfare.

  62. Marilynn Reeves says

    I can go with food and medical care but that’s it. If you have a child and are on welfare you need an IUD until you can provide for yourself. I wish the government did as much for seniors as they do for people on welfare. Maybe without all the extras they would get a job out of boredom.
