Peeps, we've got to educate ourselves and stop saying things that make us appear ignorant. We cannot settle for complacency to appease our laziness and keep from being involved as well as uneducated. We, Christians, are not called to stick our heads in the dirt or carry a government banner, but we are called to carry God's banner of righteousness (not self-rightness)... but truly- how can it be righteous to allow ones self the failed and vain luxury of ignorance. You're not a Christian? Well, you still have a responsibility to your families and your fellowman to follow after what is right for the sake of the future.
Discussing the Federal free phone program (Lifeline Assistance and Lifeline Link-Up) the editor from NewMediaJournal.com sates:
" 'Editor's Note: We would like to see the citation to the Bill of Rights that denotes the right to "peace of mind." We know that the inalienable rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness are enshrined, but we haven't seen anything about cellphones. This is a perfect example of how the federal government wastes money under the guise of "helping the poor.' "
Just to clarify...the actual phone program was launched under Clinton and remained intact under Bush because the Democrats would NOT budge to have it repealed. Since our current president took office this program has bloated to an unprecedented size; as have all other welfare entitlements.
It’s another extremely sad commentary of our times.
If you are an unbeliever-- go read it for yourself; here are some links to save you a little time:
