In the article concerning the space crunch for the homeless. Concerning Pia Mowli, for someone being homeless, she sure has clean, expensive looking pants and -----the cell phone----how does someone who is homeless afford a cell phone? If she has a job, then she can afford to pay for her own housing and food. A cell phone is NOT A NECESSITY!!!!!!! People need to start being responsible for themselves and quit looking for a handout. Put their priorities in order also is in order!!

first of all u dnt kno me to pass judgement bt its ok bt the only reason i had a phne was because no matter what my family still wanted me to keep in c0ntact with them even though i was homeless...bt times hav changed and im blessed and goin to college...there were alot of poeple with cell phones in the shelter so that dnt define a person whether they r homeless or not...watch wat you say cuz karma is a real bitch! you are someone who has never been in my shoes so get to understand cmpletely before you say anything about anyone else

You can get an Obama phone for free (on taxpayers dime.) I know someone who has one, and I think he gets 200 minutes a month.

And your paying for it every time you pay your phone bill with the ( USF )universal connectivity charge at the bottom of your bill . You are paying for the freeloaders to get a free Obama cell phone. How happy are "YOU " about that. Vote Obama and help support the world. Oh and all the freeloaders the work the system too.

Why do you assume I think this is a good thing? I can't stand Obama. I didn't vote for him in 2008 and I'm not voting for him in 2012. Just because I know someone who has an Obamaphone, doesn't mean I'm happy about that.
