Oba Ma Bell is my name for Obama's Lifeline program to get the phones in the hands of the poor, needy, underprivileged, disenfranchised and -- now for a new term -- financially unstable.
Call it what you will. In the end its nothing more than wealth redistribution, aka, socialism. It's why conservatives call Obama a socialist.
The program benefits those likely to tap into welfare; mostly black folks when factored by percent. According to Oba Ma Bell's website* if you're already on welfare, you automatically qualify for a free phone.
Code words are key.
Note also that whenever the left is making a pitch, it includes key words, phrases and thoughts.
Key words include:
To oppose the wealth distribution program du jour is to deny access to whatever. Recall the pitch for Obamacare's free contraception program. Google ''Sandra Fluke".
The wealth distribution program du jour is your right; you have civil rights, gay rights, contraception rights and cell phone rights.
• Life or death
The wealth distribution program du jour is always portrayed as essential for life. Without, people would die. When Pennsylvania's legislature proposed ending it's mini bailout program, liberals fumed that people would die.
If you oppose wealth redistribution programs such as Oba Ma Bell, you are
• denying people access to whatever,
• taking away their rights,
• and a racist.
Oba Ma Bell cell phones, of course, an be used for more than dialing 911. Black teens can text one another to organize mob attacks on 7-Elevens.
For the record, I have no problem with the old and feeble having access to cell phones. I do have a problem, however, with the government forcing me to pay for them. Preferred would be a private, non-profit organization with tax-exempt status that allows those endowed with oodles of white privilege to donate funds as they see fit.
