He also doesn't know that the typical "Reganphone" the cell companies give out is a total POS phone of the kind they sell at Wal-Mart on prepaid for ten bucks. If someone wants a better phone, they have to pay for it. But yeah, that feature phone with no camera and a 2" screen is awesome!

You are aware that providing landline phones to poor people is a LOT more expensive than providing cell phones, right?

The question is... do you guys have full time jobs? How do you find the time to post these fake outrage threads and posts at all hours of the day and night?

There is a term you obviously have NOT heard of, "baby boomers".

We ACTUALLY worked our whole lives, I started having to do chores around the house when I entered 1st grade, then with a paper route when I was 12, paid into Social Security and Medicare (against our will) which paid for those who worked before us and retired, enrolled in our 401K pension plans, invested in our IRA pension plans and NOW are ABLE through our hard work and smart investing to be ABLE to retire and do what we want with our EARNED "free" time.

It isn't really "free", because we PAID FOR IT.

But OP, that's why they have the time to post 24/7. They've got Fox in the background and a lot of time to share right wingery.

They "forget" that W. Bush TRIED to "fix" SS but, the dems REFUSED to even attend the meeting he called.

And now all they do is whine and cry because we collect on it.

Medicare, according to them, is an "entitlement" that we paid for our entire working lives and STILL PAY TODAY if we choose to enroll in it.

But it is "our" fault.

The immaturity of those doing the whining is TREMENDOUS.

How do you come up with that?

A land line costs around $20 a month. A telephone to hook to it costs about $15, a 1 time cost.

The last I heard, and do not if true or not, today's program gives "smart phones with UNLIMITED TEXT and DATA.

You can't TOUCH a smart phone for $15.

The problem people are having with your post, and again, I don't define myself as either a conservative or liberal, is that instead of asking how "people" find time to post at all hours of the day, you're asking how "conservatives" find time to post at all hours of the day. Whether you intended to or not, it sounds like you're indicting one group of people as having nothing better to do.

I tend to hop on here when I'm on LONG holds trying to reach someone. I need little sleep, I'm up working out and then working at an unGodly hour while the rest of the world sleeps, and I put in 50 - 60 hours a week.

In addition, I'm a widower not in a relationship, my adult children are gone and on their own, I'm a published author, I'm a public speaker, and I do volunteer work.

I say all of this to dispel any notion that people are sitting on here with nothing else to do. I doubt that's the case with anyone.

How can you possibly have a job after I've heard so many democrats giving speeches complaining about how awful the economy and unemployment have become?

I've worked for thirty years. Cleaned houses and baby sat during high school. Now, if I go out and try to get a job, I'm being selfish and stealing from the millenials.
