Government Opening Free Gas Stations in Poor Neighborhoods

Oct 29, 2013
First 'Obamastation' Debuts in Detroit, Seventy Planned Nationwide

ObamastationAs the battle over Obamacare rages in Washington, the White House is quietly using a little known provision of the law to roll out a nationwide network of free gas stations for minorities and the poor.

According to a report in The Detroit News this morning, the administration is using its authority under the Affordable Care Act to "improve transportation routes to hospitals" to dispense gasoline free of cost in disadvantaged neighborhoods.

The $2 billion-a-year program aims to distribute 40 million gallons of free gasoline each year through 70 new gas stations constructed in major metropolitan areas. The Department of Health and Human Services (DHS) will be responsible for operating the network, whose first station opened yesterday in Detroit.

"It's not something we're publicizing very much, for obvious reasons," explains Dori Salcido, assistant DHHS secretary for public affairs. "But under the law we are well within our rights to offer this service, and we think it's good public policy.

"How are people supposed to get to the doctor's office if they don't have gas in their cars? Health insurance is worthless if you can't make your appointment. This is just another fine example of government stepping in and solving big problems."

No Gas for You

Although some developing oil-rich nations like Venezuela and Indonesia subsidize gasoline for the poor, the practice has never before been tried in the United States. The plans are proving controversial with some taxpayers who are loathe to see their money go to subsidize others.

"So basically I'm being punished for not living in the ghetto," says Colin Blair, a white person from the affluent Detroit suburb of Farmington Hills. "I have three kids and a mortgage. Life isn't cheap for me either. I could use some free gasoline too."

An investigation into the station's operations, however, reveals that Blair is unlikely to be able to use the service.

"Supposedly access to the station is determined by income," says Ebony Jackson, manager of the first Obamastation. "But it's pretty unrealistic to do an income check on each and every driver. So what we do is basically let all the black people pump for free, and charge all the white people the market rate."

The Obamastations scandal was uncovered by Nolan Finley , a conservative Detroit News columnist widely lauded for his groundbreaking exposé on Obamaphones. Finley says the blatant racial bias in the program is only one of its many outrageous aspects.

"The stations have Obama campaign logo on them and giant photos of the president," he explains. "He's trying to buy votes ahead of the midterm elections. This is something you normally only see in third world countries. I've never been more scared for our democracy."

    What’s sad is that I could actually see Obama trying to do something like this.

  • Kim Craig Dixon

    If there is any truth to this, we seriously need a war. In the home front. I’m sick of these no accounts living out of my pocket and everyone else’s. The only thing they are entitled to is to get a frigging job. Loosers.

    This may be a joke now but it could one day be a reality.

    Daily Currant is a parody site, moron, It’s like you fell for an Onion article. Wait, Baggers do fall for Onion articles all the time. It’s Losers, by the way. One “o”.

  • jdelcjr

    These satire articles must be written by a bunch of liberals in their relentless attack against conservatives. The proof is in the comments. They cannot debate the truth because they don’t know or want to know the truth, so they always resort to Name calling, vulgarity, deception and trickery.

  • Ray Gunner

    If a similar article, changing gas to cell phones, were written several years ago, you would have made this same asinine comment.

    Sadly, we have found that any welfare benefit you can think of is not out of reach for this administration.

  • NotAnIdiot

    Tell me what they loosened?

  • Louis Arnold

    THIS is what the Progressives wanted when gasoline was racing upwards in price with many on that side crying out, “Make it $6 a gallon so we get ours free!!!”

    This is a satire, right? RIGHT? PLEASE tell me this is SATIRE.

    Those damn freedom loving baggers. I tell you, I dont know what those Constitution loving, small government pushing, liberty and right seekers think sometimes. You douche Erin!

    And yet the city of Detroit is burning. I wonder if they got the gas to set the city ablaze from the Obama stations. Way to go there morons

    this is satire ….two second on internet tell you that lol…is a satirical magazine..

  • annoyed american

    uh almost every president has screwed out economy up. it didn’t start with Obama. No he didn’t help it out at all but he didn’t start it.
    people seriously need to stop blaming him its not only him. its congress as well

  • MerleTemple

    Ray, the original program was to provide seniors and shut-ins with basic phone, no call features, no long distance, etc. This is not what happened under Reagan. Snopes takes some facts and tilts them to the left. Obama, just as he did with food stamps, eliminates any means testing to buy votes and corrupts well meaning programs. I worked in the Bell System when the original program was implemented. It was strict, and nothing like this.

  • Wendy Shores

    Such bullshit.. why dont you post truths instead of lies? Lets see how fast they get rid of this post… pffft

    I’m glad that I not only get to work hard to feed them but now I can work so they can got to the beach, liquor stores and drug deals. Now we can have more people on the road that arn’t paying for insurance. If you have an appointment and don’t have a ride you wake up early and walk over there.

    Is Obamacare a satire, too? It’s the same ridiculousness!

    They loosened integrity and American standards, not that it took much with socialistic leaders. Losers!

    No racism her- move along—”Supposedly access to the station is determined by income,” says Ebony Jackson, manager of the first Obamastation. “But it’s pretty unrealistic to do an income check on each and every driver. So what we do is basically let all the black people pump for free, and charge all the white people the market rate.”

  • Wayne Lexus

    Yea ok, then u gunna have all the rich stuck up bastards driving to the poor areas to fill up and leave… smmfh fuck this country

  • William Harper

    Merle, you sound like a nice guy but you didn’t get any of this right – the program was based on income and expanded by Clinton. As far as I can tell, Obama hasn’t touched the program – do you have a source that says otherwise? Also, if you don’t feel Snopes is balanced do you have an alternative I can use?

  • MerleTemple

    Thanks for your civility, William. We just disagree. I worked the program, so for these sites to claim that it was Reagan is disingenuous and misleading at best. No, I don’t use any of these sites, left or right, to seek truth. I read, seek, analyze data from all sides…and then make decisions based on many years of experience in government and politics. What I am to think of a President who adds over 14 million people to food stamps, almost overnight, and then puts a grant up on USDA offering $75,000 to anyone who can identity ways to add more…even as we sink under an ocean of debt?

  • William Harper

    I don’t disagree about the debt but feel that everyone in congress should share the blame. Not a single elected official has done anything to reduce the debt – many of them claim they have but none have. The Ryan budget is an example. All of his current year cuts are offset by adds in other areas and the majority of his proposed cuts are in the out years – smoke and mirrors. Do you know the difference between a republican and a democrat? Me neither.

  • wavesofgrain

    Reagan’s phone ‘program’ included LAND LINES only…for local and emergency use. As a conservative, I didn’t mind paying for that. But when Obama started giving free cell phone, with 250 min, and free texts…which I could not even afford, it infuriated me.

  • William Harper

    Thanks. I went to truthorfiction and searched for “snopes”. They say Snopes is legit and not biased – http://www.truthorfiction.com/rumors/s/snopes.htm#.UnLd3hBbQUE. Funny stuff.

  • MerleTemple

    No, not so much. The two parties are one for the most part. Some tinkering around the edges when they swap power, but anyone who thinks the parties are conservative vs. liberal…well, they live in fantasy land. The Democrats are much closer to liberal purity, more than I’ve seen in a long time, but the establishment folks run the GOP. I have not seen liberty recede at such a rate as it has in the last few years. When I worked in Reagan’s campaign in 1980, we would not have believed this was possible in my lifetime. Things that were hinted at, nibbled at, by the left, are now flaunted and the messianic state has found its avatar in Obama. The meltdown has begun, the economy is near dead, there are few jobs, and it is going to get worse. Worst of all, faith is under attack. The Founders would not know what to make of it all.

  • DannyE

    And the buffoon of a president has his buffoon supporters.

  • Tim T. Sr.

    @William Harper: Merle Temple is completely correct in his post as to what the Telephone Program was originally intended to do.. As with other good intention Programs it has gotten out of hand, Case in Point the Food Stamp program.. This is what happens when you have Liberal Left Wingers getting involved..

  • Ron Gilbert

    So how is it free when tax payers are paying for it?

  • Cathy Miller Carroll

    You should realize that this President inherited a sky-rocketing unemployment rate and the implosion of our capitalist system. Under those circumstances I think it is logical to assume that the number of citizens receiving assistance would rise.

  • Ron Gilbert

    Please tell me that my eyes are deceiving me. You didn’t just post something believing that Snopes is actually on the up and up did you? Apparently you do not know that the husband and wife team that run Snopes are ultra Liberals being paid by other Liberals to “debunk” Conservative statements with blatant lies. Don’t believe me? When Obama Care transcripts were first released to the public, several people pointed out that RFID chips would be required in this bill. Snopes debunked it by saying that the class II implantable devices that Obama Care were actually pace makers not RFID chips. But the CEO of Applied Digital Solutions (the makers of RFID chips) stated publicly that they were in fact the class II implantable devices under Obama Care. Snopes tried to debunk that but failed and now we see that they are in fact going to be implemented in 2014 even though the Obama Administration and Snopes stated in 2011 through 2012 that this was not true. Snopes is unreliable at best.

  • Cathy Miller Carroll

    oh wait…I thought you were talking about the 1% there for a minute.
    cuz you know that’s who your hard work and spending really enable to live like kings, right?

  • Ron Gilbert

    Snopes is not legit. It is run by an ultra leftist husband and wife team being paid by other Liberal organizations to purposefully spread deceit about things that Conservatives write about. Here is one prime example. In 2011 they “debunked” claims that RFID chips were not the implantable Class II devices that Obama Care was talking about. Yet the CEO of the company that developed these devices for the government (Applied Digital Solutions) stated in public forum that they were in fact the devices spoken of in Obama Care. The White House denied this claim but was are now seeing that it was true after all. This is but one of the glaring facts that Snopes is not on the up and up. They have a tendency to throw in truth combined with lies.

  • Allan Caesar III

    I don’t want a war, I just want Bill Clinton as President again.

  • MerleTemple

    No, the numbers didn’t rise so dramatically until Obama eliminated means testing. It was a purposeful means of energizing a voting block and securing the allegiance of people to the state. What Obama inherited, he only exacerbated by doubling down on spending and regulation. Those who think he is incompetent are wrong. He knows just what he’s doing. He is the same committed ideologue that said he couldn’t wait for the revolution when he partied with Marxists at Occidental, who mocked people for clinging to their guns and religion, who preached the message of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals on the Woods Board, who was hand picked by Communist Party member Alice Palmer to take her Illinois State Senate seat, who entertains the SEIU president after he speaks at a N.Y. conference on “How to destroy capitalism,” and adorns the White House Christmas tree with ornaments honoring Mao. Culturally and economically, he has come to destroy all that was and look the gullible masses in the eye and lie to them as he did when he said you can keep your health insurance.

  • Johnny Ribena

    Well if you say they’re real Ron, why wouldn’t anyone believe you?

  • oblivious to rhetoric

    If you really look at the FACTS about this: a cell phone is cheaper than landlines. You seem to want to be angry about something. I suggest you do some research first before crying unfair. There are MANY other things you should be all up in arms over but the phone thing is petty and seriously ridiculous. As for this site, you should maybe read the first paragraph in the “ABOUT” section of this site before you start throwing stones.

  • Jesse Jacksin

    REVOLUTION, if this is true!

  • Mike Holton

    1.Count the number of liberals who are here supporting or defending a fake program.
    2. Count the number of buy-anything conservatives who are here calling for civil war over a fake program they think is real.

    Higher total gets bragging rights on dumbest group alive. Republicans favored 10-to-1.

  • William Harper

    Source please. I checked about half of your claims and none are true.

  • Keet Hensley

    Hello,
    It was one of Obama’s favorite Advisers that caused this mess, BILL CLINTON when he got China to sign the WTO agreement back when he was our Illustrious leader.

    China has not been playing fair with it and has stolen our jobs and been flooding Walmart with the products so cheap we cannot manufacture them for that price let alone be any kind of competitive.

    You Americans love those cheap prices so much, you just love supporting those people that stole not only your jobs but the whole factories.

    Then to make it better, Obama sent Bill’s wife to cut another deal with China, and China is running with it.

    Soon we will owe China so much, that they will demand payment and when we fail, they get our PROPERTY, Land that is, by Eminent Domain they will choose our choicest land and you will be moving.

    Is it not AMAZING how much we still hear about the Clintons in our politics every day?

    Obama Whines and says it was Bush, did you ever hear Bush Whine about what he Inherited?

  • james earl ray

    If this is true! Hopefully obama will have a dream like martin luther king!!

  • stevor

    will this finally get libtards to open their eyes when they have skyrocketing health costs and that pays for this freebie?

  • Will Neely

    I love the whole “there is a giant picture of Obama on the sign, hes just trying to buy votes for the next election” bit. First off, in the past two elections Obama has almost completely taken the black vote. He doesn’t need to do anything more to get them. Second,HE CAN’T RUN AGAIN. Presidents only get two terms. Nothing he does now is to win him votes. Or really, to win him favor. He does what he thinks is best for the country. And the whole thing where it says “well just give the gas to black people and charge white people the market rate” bit, there is no way that would fly. This is either fake, or not the full story .

  • Will Neely

    lol because Bush didn’t inherit much bad. He raised the debt so high and put us in these wars and left it to Obama to fix.

  • SpeedDemon174

    its not true… it was a hoax

    that food stamp program is also your farm bill that pays multimillionaire ultra conservative “farmers” billions in farm subsidies. get rid of food stamps and you get rid of the subsidies for those “farmers”, and you can guess what that would do. remember the french revolution

  • Guest

    This can not be true. This would start a war.

  • Bob Jones

    If this is true, I would think that any service station determining who pays by their race can find themselves the subject of lawsuits because race can not be used as a means to determine who gets free services and who pays. These suits need to be filed immediately instate and federal courts….I don’t care what the ACA says…it is unconstitutional to determine who pays by race!!!

    You are free to check it out for yourself. In the state of Iowa, those that are on public aid were sent letters from the state telling them that they had to have the RFID chip installed by mid 2014. This is being repeated in many other states as well.

  • carol

    Obummer is trying everything is his power to get votes. I wouldn’t take anything free from that moron and his cronies.

  • Ron Gilbert

    So you give a source that is known to be ultra leftist and trust them and you expect that any source I give you is not going to be character smeared by you? Sorry, fell for that one a long time ago. Sooner or later that truth will smack you so hard it will be impossible for you to deny it. Oh…. that’s probably going to incur the usual “No source? No truth then!” that I get from people that depend upon another person spoon feeding them information. Keep looking, you will find what I said to be true. One more thing, I only made 2 claims so how is it that by looking up one claim you can state that none of my claims are true?

    hahaha that’s funny. thank goodness its not true. I think they got the idea form a guy who owned a gas station he called it the Obama. He was in a poor part of Detroit and was helping people form the area with their gas. there is a YouTube video of him.

  • tiamariacat

    And I guess Erin that you thought “the baggers” almost paid for your gas ? I guess the ( Money) “Baggers” are Ok when dey be paying for your free stuff, right? You obviously fell for it too, otherwise you wouldn’t even be here. Too bad the jokes on you.

  • tiamariacat

    This ‘parody site’ sure got your attention, didn’t it ? You guys are like flies to honey when you see free stuff.

  • tiamariacat

    Merle , you are correct. I too worked in the cell phone industry for over a decade & approved people for these programs. You had to be over 65 or disabled & within certain income guidelines which were very strict. And you had to PROVE IT. You only got 15 minutes for emergency calls & no perks ( text etc.). And only basic phones were available. That program was called Lifeline. It was a far cry from the Obama phone program of today. I received exactly 3 calls in 10 yrs. for that program. That was back when people had pride.

  • tiamariacat

    Keet, I think you are you’re ‘getting it’ ! That is exactly WHY China has our companies and our jobs. It never pays to borrow money. However the debt to China goes back to 1928 & not a cent of interest has been paid since. They have already called their loans. That’s the part you have not been told. And they have already picked a few choice locations to begin building companies. Can’t wait to see what the ‘minority/majority’ thinks about this ! But, of course, they are too busy getting to the next level of Candy Crush to be bothered with paying attention.

  • tiamariacat

    Snopes is run by George Soros. Hardly a site I’d ever trust. There is no ‘source’, you just need to put some time into and do some research. Please stop believing mainstream & get your own answers. Reverse engineer it & do some research on the site owners, like I did, and you will be lead straight to the man mentioned above. Snopes gets a Nopes from me.

  • MerleTemple

    Yes, it was a different time, wasn’t it? Foreign to many today, I fear. Too many have the fixed pie mentality…if I have something, I must have taken it from you. We were taught to enlarge the pie for all, and did. That’s the genius of the free market and capitalism. Of course, the SEIU president visits the White House often, once after speaking at a gathering in N.Y. entitled “How to destroy capitalism.” Obama pits neighbor against neighbor and has balkanized the country and fostered a mood of tribalism that I didn’t think possible. Today, folks see the fat man and assume he got that at the expense of the thin man. Of course, if it’s in New York City, they just arrest the fat man for too many big gulps.

  • tiamariacat

    Yes it was. It was an embarrassment to take a handout in those days. You did what you could to get by. And now we have people who shuffle around all day thinking they are entitled to something & somebody ‘owes’ them a living. I say ;get off your butt’ and DO something. God rewards those who help themselves, not the sloths in this world.
    BTW, the company I worked for (that runs on 48% profit),was offered 7 Million dollars in TARP funds. The CEO initially declined the offer, they didn’t need the money, but was later forced to accept it. This company is now ‘in the pocket’ of the WH. The rest will soon become history …. I am not surprised that the CEO ‘retired’ right after that.
    We live in an upside down world run by an upside down Government with upside down people serving them. Good luck to future of this country.

  • sickofobama

    Surely,you’re not serious??Still blaming Bush huh??I didn’t care for Bush,but Obama has done 10x’s more to wreck this nation and has done nothing but hurt the real working class.Not the welfare class that he likes to call the working class.

  • William Harper

    I provided a source that says the first source is valid. You provided wild claims: 1)an ultra leftist husband and wife team 2)being paid by other Liberal organizations 3) to purposefully spread deceit about things that Conservatives write about 4)RFID. I’m sorry you are so angry but everything you don’t agree with is not liberal or leftist. By the way, it is hard to smear a valid source. Do you have one or not?

  • William Harper

    If you did your own research then why not provide sources? I am not claiming Snopes is valid, I am claiming that no one has proven otherwise because they never provide sources and they get angry when asked for them.

  • Ghost Rider

    So now BECAUSE YOU ARE BLACK you get FREE gasoline but ALL the others have to pay for. Obamaa also spent several BILLION dollars to give to the BLACK farmers that. supposedly, weren’t given the same price for their gain as WHITE people were. MANY BLACK NON-FARMERS got their share of that money. Reports state one black woman got several THOUSAND dollars for her FARM that turned out to be TWO tomato plants in a window planter at her fourth floor apartment. WE NEED TO GET SOMEONE TO STOP ALL THIS RACISTS stuff that taxpayers are paying for and the lazy douchbags are getting for free.

  • Ron Gilbert

    The Blaze, The Drudge Report, and several other independent news agencies that I have listed for others time and time again only to have them character smear them time and time again while never actually addressing the claims. I always hesitate to offer sources due to the instant reaction of refutation without validation. Each and everyone of my claims is readily available but you are going to have to search it out for yourself but I will lead you in the right direction (and ps, not angry just completely tired of the same old comebacks by those that are so willing to accept main stream media explanations as truth)

    http://urbanlegends.about.com/od/internet/a/snopes_exposed.htm

    If you google whether Snopes is liberal, whether they are legit, whether they lie, you will find a smattering of differing opinions on this from they are Conservative bias to Liberal bias. From they are factual to they are liars. But when I find several issues that they have lied about (including the RFID issue) I tend to believe that source is not legit. When they defend a lying president by saying he is not lying about the things he does and then you can go to numerous sources and confirm that he did in fact lie, I tend to believe that they are not legit and are leftist. When journalists from independent news agencies come up with the same research stating that they are ultra leftists and Snopes denies this, I have a tendency to not believe them and will call people out on it when they list Snopes as a reliable source.

  • Diane Kilgore

    so how is it free, do they pick people, give them an a certain amount for gas, it will probably be put on their bridge card for cash you only get cash when you have kids. but here’s another thing if you don’t have transportation medicaid will supply a driver, they should just give you bus vouchers, and also give you a car up to a certain amount, it’s such a shame that people know how to work the system like getting a new refrigerator and they sell it and get a used on. and so on. Bet i won’t get any gas

    I watched the video and agree that the RFID chip and scanner was approved by the FDA and is available for use. There was no mention of ObamaCare of it being forced on anyone. I also went to Snopes and looked at what they said about the chip – they basically said the Government is not requiring anyone to get the chip. I also couldn’t find any mention of it in the Affordable Care Act.

    I read the article you referenced at urbanlegends.about.com and it is clearly states that Snopes is legit.

    I searched both The Blaze and Grudge and neither have articles on the RFID chip or Snopes.

    I googled “Does Snopes lie?” and the results listed several sites that support your view. Unfortunately, none of the first 10 I checked offered any evidence to support their argument.

    You may wonder why this is such a big deal to me. Simple – As a conservative I see our way of life being degraded not by liberals and democrats but by people, claiming to be conservative, who can’t seem to tell the truth and exaggerate like
    children. Look at the comments by conservatives on any news site or even Facebook – most of the claims are false. People can’t see that the truth because we have made it nearly impossible to find.

    As noted in the Daily Currant’s “About” page, that web site deals strictly in satire:

    The Daily Currant is an English language online satirical newspaper that covers global politics, business, technology, entertainment, science, health and media.

    Q. Are your news stories real?

    A. No. Our stories are purely fictional. However they are meant to
    address real-world issues through satire and often refer and link to
    real events happening in the world.

    Have to admit, if they had not run it, who knows they try it.

  • OBAMAfriedchicken

    This CANNOT be real… I am just going to act like an Obama voter and empty my mind of this article and all reality. Starting… NOW.

  • fred

    I guess that we will have to buy them automobiles since you can’t get to the doctor or the polls without an auto. What’s the use of having free gasoline if you cannot get a free Cadillac to burn it in.

  • S Vickers

    Using Snopes as your fact checker is just as idiotic as believing The Daily Currant. The phone program started by Reagan was a basic landline for seniors and shut ins. I know several families where everyone in the family has an Obama phone (4 and 5 per family). I also see them in the grocery store, paying with their EBT card and everyone in the family has a top of the line phone.

  • Tony Zambos

    false story

  • James D

    We he have a government that lies all time …..that is a fact not a parody. And now we have so many websites using sick phoney comedy that anything we read we can’t trust

  • A_patriot

    This is just scary enough to be true! But it is dripping with sarcasm. Likely the writer is just attempting to keep their sanity by blowing off some metaphysical steam, as it were.

  • carol

    what Reagan wanted was for people to be able to dial 911 in emergencies……then the free-for-all president escalated it (free phones) into the mess it is now…..attracting the free-loaders who are lazy…..

  • carol

    Merle, you have hit the nail on the head for sure…..obama usurps everything and is trying fast and hard to destroy us…..

  • Ron Gilbert

    This is directly from the ACA: “The Secretary shall establish a national medical device
    registry (in this subsection referred to as the ‘registry’) to
    facilitate analysis of postmarket safety and outcomes data on each
    device that—”(A) is or has been used in or on a patient; and ”(B) is a
    class III device; or ”(ii) a class II device that is implantable”. The link I shared with the CEO of Applied Digital Solutions was just 1 of many that can be sourced but there are several where he specifically states that the RFID chip his company manufactures will be mandated under Obama Care as a Class II implantable device. In the state of Iowa, they have sent out letter after letter to those receiving welfare that by mid 2014 they will be required to be implanted with this device in accordance with the new mandates under the ACA. I know this because I work in the healthcare field for Iowa Health Systems (now Unitypoint Clinics) and several patients have expressed concern over this new mandate. Sadly some of our physicians have reference Snopes to them assuring them that this could not be true even though they had letter in hand. As for the link I provided about Snopes, that was my point. There are several that say it is ultra leftist and several that deny it. When I first referenced Snopes on the RFID chip they stated that it was NOT the Class II device and from what you just stated they are now saying that it will not be required by the ACA. This is still a lie and when a site claiming that they are reliable and non-biased, I still see this as being just one of many of their false claims. I do not believe any of their claims about Obama’s birth certificate (which has already been shown to be photo shopped and admitted to having been done by one of Obama’s aids), Obama’s selective service paperwork (which has also been shown to have been a forgery due to the time stamp issue), and just about everything they have “debunked” concerning Benghazi (again, when they first wrote on their site about it, it was due to a video being shown defaming Mohamed and we know that is not true).

  • Not Chicken Little

    This is a real scare story, for Halloween! What’s really scary is, it is so believable and sounds just like something Obama would/could do, if he had thought of it first!

    The truth is, what’s coming under Obama is likely to be much more outrageous and damaging to our economy and our country, than what’s “reported” in this humorous article.

  • plcc07777

    Surely this isn’t true. As much as I loathe Obama’s leadership, I find it hard to believe he could get by with such nonsense without a furious public outcry. On the other hand, he was elected by a majority of the sheeple.

  • AJames

    You do not pay 2 billion a year in taxes.

  • William Harper

    Actually, the program was expanded to include cell phones in 2008. Since then, 14 million subscribers have been added which accounts for the additional costs. I agree the program should be canned but the current president had little to do with it.

  • William Harper

    I’m not sure what you mean. Yes, it is a tax but was has that go to do with the RFID claim you made?

  • Ron Gilbert

    You said not part of the law. Also, read my other response to the RFID claim. I stated that even though you said that it was removed, our patients that are on state medicaid are receiving letters telling them that they must have this device implanted due to mandates within the ACA (in case you missed it here is exactly what I stated “Also, if that were 100% true, why are medicaid patients still receiving letters stating that they would have to be implanted with these devices in accordance with the ACA mandates?”). Maybe you should make them aware that they voted it out and that no one is really being forced to have them implanted.

  • Lou Cifer

    Real farmers would love to have the gov’t out of our business. Let capitalist supply and demand dictate prices. Would love to have someone show up here at 4 am to milk my cows 365 days a year…I’d even pay that poor person’s health care premiums out of my own pocket. Unfortunately, not every freeloader is willing to earn his subsidy like the American farmer has to.

  • jackjack

    you are correct, but the sad part is. most people wouldn’t doubt that its true..because what’s the motivation to get a job you get free food. free healthcare, free housing and welfare checks…why work. whats the motivation ?. Erin won’t answer this because he can’t. what he will do is attack that’s what liberals do. it must be we are bad poeple and we must be punished.

  • Ron Gilbert

    And you sound like a troll not one that claims to be a Conservative just trying to make sure that other Conservatives do not look like Liberals making false claims. Those letters contain patient information and it goes against HIPPA. How about you contact the State of Iowa public aid and ask them yourself?

  • Ron Gilbert

    Just so you know, Obama does not have any affiliation with these gas stations. This one is owned by an Arab man that supports the fraud in charge by claiming to sell cheap gas. He owns 3 of them and falsely believes that Obama is doing his best to help this nation. You can watch a few videos of him preaching his allegiance to his false god back in 2008 before the liar in chief was elected.

  • discripplemation

    you know what i love the most about the currant? reading the comments. i have ceased being amazed that ppl fall for the stuff these guys make up and have moved to being amused by the credulous idiots that do. if the fact that the “currant” is a small red berry that grows on a bush, as opposed to “current”, meaning happening right now, doesn’t tip you off to this being satire… smh… and the trolls!! you all go right on feeding them! who needs t.v. when there is plenty of comedy right here?

    That makes a lot of sense. Think of me as you will but please remember that every false claim you make is driving more people to the other side.

    “Supposedly access to the station is determined by income,” says Ebony Jackson, manager of the first Obamastation. “But it’s pretty unrealistic to do an income check on each and every driver. So what we do is basically let all the black people pump for free, and charge all the white people the market rate.”

    After reading that, I knew this was not a real article. lol

  • adndm

    thats pretty damn racist to say ” So what we do is basically let all the black people pump for free, and charge all the white people the market rate.” are you kidding me!!!

  • Darren

    Your list is absolutely wrong. Mississippi is #1 followed by Louisiana, New Mexico, Alabama, Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, W. Virginia, Arizona, and Tennessee. Soo your idea that Democrat states have the highest level of poverty is just false…the only state that could be considered Democrat is West Virginia!

  • falling321

    Clinton had the good fortune to be president during the tech bubble, when people were becoming millionaires overnight and the government was raking in revenue! And of course he had a decent Republican Congress who kept his spending in check and forced his hand when it came to welfare reform.

  • falling321

    Obama has not only touched the program, he turned it into a campaign promise in some areas. ACORN was promising free cell phones for votes in 2008 when they were in Richmond trying to get people registered.

    In 2008, our gov. spent $772 million on the program…far too much, but at least it was limited to our elderly and victims of spousal abuse or other specific crimes. During Clinton’s term it the minutes were increased and more people were made eligible for the program. By 2011, taxpayers were on the hook for $1.6 billion and an audit of the system showed that 270,000 people had received phones from more than one service provider under the Lifeline program and after eliminating those duplicate subscribers our government claimed to have “saved” 33 million dollars! Of course, no money was cut from the program and in 2012, the program cost taxpayers $2.4 billion for 12.5 million phone lines.

I could care less if you believe you have debunked them, I only gave you a smattering of the information I have read. Now stop harassing me and go about your life arguing with someone else.

    Obama gas station in Columbia raising eyebrows
    Posted: May 16, 2011 4:53 PM PDT Updated: May 27, 2011 3:04 PM PDT

    By Brandi Cummings – bio | email

    COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) – A gas station on Columbia’s North Main Street has been renamed and redecorated after President Obama.

    Two gas stations sit at the corner of Columbia’s North Main Street and Prescott Road, the El Cheapo and another station with a new name — Obama.

    “I see more people come in excited with the name,” said owner Sam Alhanik, who got the idea from a friend who created an Obama Gas Station in Michigan.

    Alhanik has only owned this station for two months. Although born in Yemen, he says he supports America’s president. “It’s the first president of black people,” he said. “It’s our president. We like him.”

    He says he’s seen a boom in business since changing the name, one that has sparked quite the competition with the station across the street. Before our interview, the price at the Obama station was $3.59 for a gallon of regular. The price at El Cheapo $3.54.

    When we mentioned the difference during our interview, Alhanik’s cousin lowered the price to $3.53. Just seconds later, the price at the El Cheapo fell too.

    “That’s the business,” said Alhanik. “I don’t want to lose everything. It’s a competition.”

    One that’s great for frequent customers like Larry Nelson, who says his stops here more often because of the president’s picture. “I feel like it does support him by coming here,” said Nelson.

    Alhanik spent $4,000 to change the name and the look. “I think it’s a good marketing tool,” said Chiquita Burton, who owns Salon 5710 on North Main.

    Burton says the gas station name change has prompted discussions in her hair salon, but she does not like the idea. “A lot of people think that it’s morally and ethically wrong to have the president beside beer, wine and cigarettes,” she said. “That’s portraying an image to society and also to the children here.”

    Not created by the Obama administration but by a couple of private sector entrepreneurs. :D

    Someone needs to send this to FoxTV right now. They are the only ones qualified to sound the alarm.

    And won’t they look even dumber than they already do when the source of the news is revealed.

    You are the reason the rest of the world thinks Americans are idiots…

  • texasaggie

    The only people stupid enough to not realize what parody means are teahadists. And they are also the only ones so intellectually challenged that they would think this is for real even from a MSM source. It is really scary as to how gullible and incredibly ignorant the teahadists are.

    I take that back. Ignorance can be remedied by education. These people are so blindingly mentally incapable that education isn’t going to do any good.

    “Never give a sucker an even break.” – W.C. Fields

    And the very people taking advantage of these cretins are the ones whom they idolize. Cruz just took them for $800,000 last month while at the same time he was yanking $24 billion out of the economy in an attempt to make life even more difficult for them. Then Beck and Limbaugh have rackets going that enrich them both beyond their ability to spend it. And Fox TV makes a very good living for hundreds of people from using these suckers as cash cows.

    You made the claim. It’s your task to provide the evidence for it, and by that I mean VERIFIABLE evidence. If you can’t do that, then the only choice is to disregard the unsupported assertion as an…I dunno… unsupported assertion.

    Shabby argument. You should probably take steps to repair it. ;)

    Really you are from Texas? The reason he thought it might be true is because he knows that if Obama had his biggest wet dream he would do exactly what this story suggests and then some.. That is what is scary.

    You are dead wrong.. California has run the biggest deficit of all the states in the last 10 years while Texas has run the biggest surplus.. So who is helping who? Your statement is misleading. While true about the welfare dollars, not true about over all dollars.. Plus most banking, tech and old industrial companies are headquartered in blue states (New York, Cali, Illinois, Minnesota, Delaware). They make most of their profits in other states which go back to their headquarter states giving those states artificially high dollar counts and tax revenue..

    I wonder if this is also included in THE AFFORDABLE BOAT ACT, ((The U.S. government has just passed a new law called: “The affordable
    boat act” declaring that every citizen MUST purchase a new boat, by April
    2014. These “affordable” boats will cost an average of $54,000-$155,000
    each.))
    If you already have a boat, you can
    keep yours (just kidding; no you can’t). If you don’t want
    or don’t need a boat, you are required to buy one anyhow.

    Like Obama, this story is a joke.

    Oh it’s true free gas..now all we all have to do is quit our jobs so we can get some too…OH .. then whos going to pay for it all..I am now but I won’t be…Hmmm..Obama does it again…!st station is located on Joy Rd. in detroit…look it up…at has a phone # all workers should call……

    If its free gas, why does it have a price per gallon on the sign? I highly doubt they would call the station “Obama”. they would come up with somthing more cleaver. I dont believe a word of this..

    It was started under Reagan……Bush expanded it. It is paid for by a small tax on your cell/landline phone bills. My cellphone bill: “$1.61 per month for “fee we collect and retain to help cover our costs related to funding and complying with government mandates, programs and obligations”. Enrollees pay nothing for a whopping 250 minutes per month and a very cheap phone. If they want more minutes they have to pay for them at a reduced rate. If they want a better phone they have to pay for it. Look up Lifeline to get the full story.

    I have to call B.S. to this one. No one would have the nerve to charge whites and give it free to blacks. I know rich black people and poor white people. Also, how do people with no gas in the city get to the doctor’s office with no gas in their car, THEY TAKE THE BUS! That’s an advantage of living in the city. Also, the math doesn’t add up. You said that the program budget is $2 billion and they are aiming to give away 40 million gallons of gas. Even at $5/gallon, that’s only $200 million. What are they doing with the other $1.8 billion. See, I can poke all kinds of wholes in this b.s. Nice try in getting stuff started!

    I’m curious about where you, and Darren who replied, got your lists. I imagine you are saying the states with the most people getting welfare and Darren is talking about the states with the most people per captia.

    Neither list seems entirely accurate though California does have the largest number of people receiving welfare.

    It doesn’t even make sense to argue that statistic though considering CA is also a state with the biggest population (by a large margin over #2 Texas.. 37m vs 25m). Further, each state decides what thresholds have to be met for people in their state to receive benefits (welfare, medicaide, etc) and California lets more people qualify for help than Texas does.

    Here is an interesting article about welfare in California from 2012. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2012/Jul/28/welfare-capital-of-the-us/

    Avg family on welfare there receives a monthly check of $463..

    They aren’t a myth. Please research some more. Specifically Life-line Assistance and Life-line Hookup. They pay for the phone and the initial connection. They also subsidize based off of income. If you have no income and you are totally living off of assistance, then the phones are completely free. And the ironic part is the Federal Government is paying people to sit at a table under a tent at gas stations in low income areas to give them out and fill out the paperwork for the individuals in case they are unable to do it themselves. But you are going to ignore me and make offensive comments even though I saw it for myself and asked for an application just to see what would happen since my family is technically just below the poverty line.

    Here is the link to the Federal Website that explains it: http://www.fcc.gov/guides/lifeline-and-link-affordable-telephone-service-income-eligible-consumers

  • stickem

    what happened to taking public transportation? someone who cant pass a drug test can get free money and now gas!! its a shame!!!

  • Mike B

    Well, I guess it’a almost time to quite the job, stop paying bills, spend the hard-earned savings and retirement funds already saved, and apply for welfare.

    After all. I want to be part of “Obama’s Plan” to help me, the poor guy!

  • Mike B.

    Isn’t that like Obama and them thar Dumbocrats who spend hard earned taxpayer money for programs like “junkers” and ObamaCare that is already starting to fail after, what….. billions of dollars spent?

  • Badland

  • 1captainhooker1

    I went to the webpage you provide. I read it. And here’s what I found:

    ” Lifeline is supported by the
    federal
    Universal Service Fund (USF).”

    So naturally I wanted to find out about this fund and where it’s money comes from, so I followed that link and found this in their FAQ:

    “Q4: Who pays for universal service?

    A4: As required by the 1996 Telecom Act,
    telecommunications carriers providing international and interstate
    service and earning above certain revenue thresholds make universal
    service contributions. Consumers may notice a universal service line
    item on their telephone bills. This line represents a charge by a
    telephone company to recover its FCC-mandated universal service
    contributions.”

    So if you want to call it a federal program, fine. It’s a federal program, but it’s funding comes from private telecom companies. These companies do choose to pass the cost along to the consumer, but do so of their own volition.

    The Founders never intended for the Feds to be our nannies. It was the Supreme Court that made the nationalization of America possible by interpreting the Constitution to favor central government over the interests of the American people.

    Supreme Court Justices have been lying in their decisions since the first court was seated, long before the court’s decision on Barry’s healthcare, where Justices Roberts and Kagan swung the court to interpret a blatantly unconstitutional law as constitutional against the interests of the American people further empowering a president with dictatorial inclinations and expanding the power of the federal government beyond even Barry’s wildest dreams.

    Why aren’t there any calls for the impeachment of Kagan and Roberts?

    Cruz took $24Bn out of the economy? Perhaps if Obama had’t been completely unwilling to negotiate it would not have come to a shutdown.
    the best part is that what the GOP was after was a delay of obamacare … now democrats are crying for a delay, because they know that seats in congress are evaporating the longer this debacle continues.
    oh the irony … if they had simply agreed to a delay they probably would have kept their seats.

    Thomas Paine was English and came to this

Without Paine’s writings, few Americans (not just Virginians) would have kept the ideal of an independent United States going.

  • mrmynor

    You do realize that for economic growth to occur, there must be a certain level of unemployment because to expand operations there must be unemployed individuals to fill the new positions you create, correct? Or that unemployed individuals who are actively seeking jobs will have a hard time getting hired if there is no means by which a potential employer can contact them? Or summoning the assistance of medical or law enforcement personnel in case of an emergency (or do medical emergencies not fall under the “necessity” heading in your book)?

    250 minutes for free a month isn’t even 5 hours of talk time, its not like you are paying for the individuals enrolled in this program to spend all day yapping on the phone.

    The bottom line here is that the bottom rung of the social ladder is an economic inevitability – regardless of how motivated everyone is to find work, there simply won’t be enough jobs to go around. Not only that, but many of the jobs that are out there pay the minimum wage of $7.25/hour, which for a full time worker who takes no vacation equates to a whopping $15,080 gross income, $13,949 after payroll taxes have been withheld. Hardly a livable wage.

    You may well wish everyone not only had a job, but had one that paid a sufficient wage to be able to cover the cost of their own basic necessities without need for financial assistance, but as the old saying goes “wish in one hand, sh*t in the other.” The reality is that what you would like simply isn’t attainable. If you think that people who are dependent on public assistance are living a life of indulgence and leisure, I would invite you to give your job to someone who wants it and try out living on the public dole for yourself, to see whether the lifestyle you are able to enjoy is really as posh and carefree as you apparently imagine it to be.

    If you want to talk about entitlement, why don’t we talk about how you and your ilk feel that the privilege and opportunity you are afforded as a citizen of the wealthiest country in the world (based on per capita income) should come free of any obligation to the very society that has facilitated your success to provide for the most vulnerable among us. Jerk.

    If the shoe fits…

  • mrmynor

    So you think it is acceptable for a party that lacks the political support to repeal a duly enacted law to condition its appropriation of the funds necessary to permit the executive to pay the obligations congress has incurred (i.e., to do their jobs) on the democratically controlled senate and the sitting president agreeing to let them make an end run around our Constitution’s requirement that for a bill to become law must pass both chambers of congress and be signed by the President?

    i doubt it was of their own volition to create an FCC mandate that requires them to charge every paying account holder a surcharge to pay for “obamaphones”.

  • jmark80

    The shoe not only doesn’t fit, but is an imaginary construct in the OPs mind. Stop with the hyper-partisan stupidity. The only ones still buying into the D vs R paradigm are the mentally inferior and the hopelessly intransigent. Equating Tea Party activists to jihadists is quite literally equitable to comparing the writers at Mother Jones to rapists. It is stupid, beneath the conversation, and adds nothing to political climate but more raging imbecility.

  • Mike Savage

    It cracks me up these obamaloids come on here and trash Foxnews and conservatives in general. Go crawl back under your rocks! You are the epitome of uninformed. And you make yourselves look like Idiots.

  • boatkitten

    And in the old days we called these: “PAY PHONES”.

    This started under the REAGAN administration, when REAGAN realized that people without a phone had almost no chance to get a followup phone call for a job.

    On top of that, PAY PHONES actually cost more to keep up. So we found that offering emergency pay phones for those types of calls is cheaper (which is why it is called LIFE LINE).

    The people do not get to use these for long distance. They pay extra for that They are offered them for emergencies —- Such as when they see you get beat to a pulp in an alley, they now have a phone to call you an ambulance. YOU might be the next person saved by an OBAMAPHONE.

  • boatkitten

    Ok, So you want them to get a job. But you don’t want them to have a phone.

    When they fill out a job application, the employer says, “OK. We’ll call you”.

    Um…..So, do you see a problem here? How in the H3LL can someone get a job with no phone!?!?!?! REAGAN said let’s give them a cheap phone so they can get jobs —— and so did Clinton —– and so did Bush —- and so did Obama.
    Get a clue! STOP THE IGNORANCE!

No wonder why Russia, Germany, China, Israel, Sweden, Mexico, Ireland, Africa, and the list goes on, completely have no respect and regard for the US. They all realize that it’s full of retarded American’s who would rather bicker amongst themselves and act like little children with name calling rather that find actual solutions to the problems. If you bitch about the problem but in the end, offer no viable solution and just sit back and let it continue as it is, then you are part of the problem.

    Well, I have an obama phone and I get foodstamps. Whats that make me. A drain on the economy because Getting a job is becoming impossible. Go ahead say it. your not trying hard enough. Cause whoever says it is living my life and would know right. Even though I dislike the fact of getting this stuff, it is still a big help when I have virtually no income. I apply to at least 5 or 6 jobs daily, over 100 in the past year, 2 interviews and 0 job offers. Why is it hard yall wonder. cause I am a felon. before u critisize me about it you would have to know the reasons for me getting the felony. Wasnt for being a criminal thats for sure. Ive always held a job up until going to prison. thats right prison. why did i go and get this felony, because the husband of my ex was hopped up on pills and passed out behind the whell of the car and run off the road with my daughter in the car. yes i called the cops but without my exes statement against him, nothing i could do because its my word against theirs. so what i do. took it into my own hands like any other father would do. granted i only punched the guy once it was enough to break his jaw. not a badass by no means and i dont like to fight but when it comes to my kids it becomes a different story. now even writing consistently to my governor. rick scott who is a joke and wont even reply to my concerns. so the EOE that companies say they are isnt true. how i know this. tested, check yes on felony box on several aps and no on several aps. which ones you think i got any replys from. def not the yes ones. so for some of us it is needed cause the only jobs i get are ones from doing little things for indidvidual ppl in my community. so dont judge all of us who get these things. though i do agree that it sucks having to pay taxes so that others have these things cause believe me id rather work everyday than get the help i get and though its very little, its still a huge help

    Calling for an end to hyper-partisan stupidity is hardly “bickering”. And I certainly do advocate for a solution. I am a staunch Libertarian who wants to see more personal freedom (gay marriage, reduction of the War on Drugs, etc.) and less Government intrusion (NDAA, Patriot Act, NSA, etc.), along with ending the foolish foreign wars and spending spree of the last 12 years.

    I AM offering a solution. And doing everything I can to enact change.

  • argh32

    Would the man child consider something like this? Of course. Would the left wing media report it? Of course not. That is what makes this spoof so believable, at first blush.
    Mr Massie wrote of the Obama’s , “I don’t hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America . They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama’s raw contempt for white America is transpicuous.

    I don’t like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress. I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President and a love of our country and her citizenry from the leader entrusted with the governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an
    unparalleled love for the country and her people. The Reagan’s made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish. His arrogance by appointing 32 leftist czars and constantly bypassing congress is impeachable. Eric Holder is probably the MOST incompetent and arrogant DOJ head to ever hold the job.”

The corrupt petty little tyrant wields government agencies like a billy club against critics and opponents. The numerous scandals; IRS targeting of GOP groups, the DOJ hacking into phones and emails of reporters, Benghazi, Fast and Furious gunrunning, and the NSA’s blanket surveillance of innocent American citizens, should result in prosecution and an 8×10 cell under Leavenworth.

    So, If you happen to be White you have to not only pay for the welfare for Blacks, the social security to illegals, Section 8 housing for the poor and illegals, the Whites now also have to pay for their gasoline. Can any one out there explain to the rest of us when all this racial crap will end? It is the Blacks that complain the Whites never do anything for the Blacks. Since the very beginning it has always been the White that helped the Blacks. Now, the Blacks want even more. I feel this is a very bad policy.

    Oh they were there alright, all over Detroit. Subsidized, but not necessarily by taxpayer dollars. There was no racial qualification for sales. Nobody got free gasoline. Several of these cropped up around election time, this is not just some made-up “Bagger” pipe dream. The stores were loaded down with give-away Obama T-shirts, hats, bumper stickers, road signs and other merchandise and campaign materials. The owners took advantage as a marketing ploy.

    One example: “The Sunoco station at the corner of Wyoming and Plymouth in Detroit has changed their signage to reflect their support of presidential candidate Barack Obama. They are also selling their gas for 10 cents cheaper than the station across the street.” – Detroit Free Press, Sep. 25, 2008

  • AmVet

    I don’t understand, here you are proving my point. If he ever told the truth you wouldn’t be able to detect it because you obviously listen to the liberal media and have not researched for your shelf. Obama never tells the truth. His lies are being exposed every day. Obama is one big embarrassment to the United States. Not one word of truth ever leaves his mouth. If you keep track of anything he has said in the past you will get a completely different story now. You cannot find one statement that he has told the American Public that has not been proven to be a lie. If you contest that you are only lying to yourself.

    When I first moved to the country there was only one car and while hubby worked I depended on neighbors to get me to medical care in emergencies and to church as well. Bless them all. When I finally got a car I offered rides to those without transportation. That’s what neighbors do. Also when I went to college on my butter and egg money I sometimes ran short for gas money so I got a part time job at the college to pay for the gas. The generosity of others and hard work was what it took to become a graduate and later a teacher. I had five children and I know its tough but it can be done.
    I really hate to see more government debt. Haven’t minorities and or the poor, of which I was one, learned to be resourceful and supportive of one another. No one understands that we had to work hard and do without a lot but we did it, My husband worked earning three hundred dollars a month and survived along with selling butter, eggs, milk and a little produce from our family garden. Just have to be resourceful and use what you have.

    Yep, Never underestimate the power of STUPID PEOPLE in large numbers. Hopefully, and I stress HOPEFULLY when these so-called “millennials” see what the “Not-so-Affordable Care Act” AKA Obamacare,is going to cost them, they won’t sign up, pay the fine, and the “system” will crash. We will see.

  • Capt. Philip Topps, AMS

    Lets clear one thing up right away. It was NOT educated people who elected Obama, it was largely undereducated, young, and illiterate voters, as even Vladimir Putin pointed out. You can see his article on that OTHER rag, Pravda, if you want to be informed.
    Secondly, I suggest you look up the quote of Norman Matoon Thomas, who ran on the Socialist platform, against FDR in the ’40s regarding how to slowly convert this country to a socialist nation, because its been happening ever since. Bet you “highly educated” (by your own description) types didn’t know that YOU are the ones being led by the nose, and you’re too stupid to even know it.
    Unfortunately, you “useful idiots” (Vladimir I. Lenin’s description of people like you) are leading the charge to a socialist system, and the rest of us are being dragged along, at least until we join forces to put a stop to it,either at the ballot box, or ” By ANY means necessary” (Malcom X)

  • Capt. Philip Topps, AMS

    Give it time, and we will. I think these millennials will revolt against the so-called “Affordable Care Act” , which isn’t, and just pay the fine, which will effectively de-fund THAT, and maybe, just maybe they will awaken and help elect someone who will turn this nation from the socialist path we are on now.

    address real-world issues through satire and often refer and link to
    real events happening in the world

  • Dale Hogue

    If the information in this article is true, then our Constitutional Republic has already become a Third World Country and there isn’t much we can do about it except grab our guns, torches and bull horns and take off for Washington D.C. to confront the clowns that have brought us to this point in our political history.
    Drum roll, please: “hup two three four, hup two three four. Hey, you slackers in the back, keep up or drop out.” Jus’ commenting ;-)

  • Dale Hogue

    I don’t know if this is true or not. If it is, then it’s time to do something to those scumbags in Washington. If it is a parody, then it’s too close to the truth to be misunderstood.

  • Dale Hogue

    If this is a parody, then it is striking very close to realism as far as the Obama Administration is concerned.

  • Dale Hogue

    If this is a parody, then it is striking very close to the realism of the Obama administration.

    You’re wrong about everything you’ve written in your post. In fact, most of the what the liberals post on this site, is pure, unadulterated BS straight from the Democratic Party headquarters’ printing machines.

  • Mike in MI

    A friend sent me an email re this article, and I freaked out until I followed the link and found this is a parody site (I hope). The large point is that the story is completely credible, and in character for Obama, as this is something he would totally do if he could. A few years back, before we entered into George Orwell’s world, who would’ve thought our president would be giving out free phones, driving labor participation to all time lows, driving welfare payments sky high, having community organizers, black panthers and the SEIU manning the voter stations (ala Vlad Lenin), and generally beating us about the head with his Cloward and Piven brickbat?

    Who woulda thought? Everyone, after 5 years of socialist, Marxist bullshit.

  • Mike in MI

    They won’t buy the ACA and they won’t pay the fine, because those aren’t the only choices. They will refuse, pursuant to their Natural Rights and the 10th Amendment, etc. Watch for states beginning to nullify this crap, it’s happening now, but even if the states don’t nullify (because we have lots of morons running the state governments, especially in my state) the people still can nullify. Read the Tenth, you’ll like it:

    Amendment X:

    “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited to it by the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

  • gunnerv1

    It’s not what he said, it’s how he said it. We’re no smarter or dumber that the average American smuck that’s tired of not seeing performance for their ‘hard earned’ Dollar$. I’m not happy with the performance of this President along with the ‘majority’ of Americans. So far, he has the ‘Touch of King Midias’s Idiot Brother, every thing he touches turns to crap’. What he has attempted to do is make American into European ideals. I was just there (Amsterdam, NL, Germany, France) and witnessed Citizens being searched by the Police at random (and the ‘sheeple’ tolerate this) and at anytime or anyplace. He attempted to do this in less than eight years. It’ll never happened without a major game changer (Civil War II). Scary, isn’t it, now what’s really scary is that they also have a minimum tax rate of 40% to pay for their Cradle to Grave Welfare System.

  • Sherry

    Thank you!

  • Obsidian Warrior

    Charging and not chraging a race is a RACIST thing to do! Someone needs to be fired and/or impeached. Obama SHOULD be impeached for “buying” votes or favortism in this manner. He authorizes this type of action! We as a Nation should run him out of town TARED AND FEATHERED riding backwards on a jackass.

  • William Harper

    I’m with ya’ man. Let’s go beat somebody up!

  • William Harper

    Absolutely correct! Let’s blast our elected representatives with our opinions on this and let’s do it today!

  • D Guest

    Sadly, the satire is not even obvious anymore. You have to sit and think to yourself, would Obama really be this bold? Just the fact that you have to think about it shows the danger our freedoms are in.

  • Tucson_Jim

    Hmmmm macs13… funny, I thought that Obama won by a 3% margin, almost exactly the same as the lead “Stolen” by GW Bush…

    Also, I might mention that out here in the South-west and Mid-west, the mining engineers, civil engineers, aerospace engineers, electrical engineers, manufacturing engineers, accountants, chemists, physicists, quality engineers, test systems engineers, doctors, etc. that I work and socialize with (all highly educated in objective-reality-based professions) seem to wonder how this charlatan with no previous real work history and no noteworthy political history got elected.

    But, then, we don’t consider Liberal Arts, History, Literature, or Communications to be a REAL educations…

    HAHAHA what utter BULL$H!T.. EVERY one of your teabagger talkkking points has long ago been disproven. It’s unfortunate, too, because I’d LOVE to see the FIRST President to actually stand up for us for a change and not just a militaristic corporate shill, like 100% of repuglickans and their teabagger front groups!

    But srsly thanks for using your copy and paste skills to give me a good laugh.

    Anarchists! LOL

  • ZOMG Lo-Info

  • Otto

    No you actually are dumber than the average person. What about <7% unemployment, 3% GDP, almost too-low inflation, and a generally seriously recovering economy don't you understand? These things, had they gone south, you would've blamed on Obama. Now you won't give him credit?

  • Arch mason

    Part of your smaller government needs to defund the military, which is 1/3 of the budget. The only reason you hate Obama is because he’s black. You didn’t hate Clinton this much despite his more liberal policy.

  • gunnerv1

    You are dumber that you sound, you actually believe those numbers. Look around you, how many unemployed or underemployed do you see? How about on your way to work, how many do you see with cardboard signs ‘Will work for food’? You actually believe the crap they feed you. I’ll guarantee you it’s greater than any 7% that the DNC pumps out. Try doubling that number and you’ll be close, as far as the GDP being at 3%, that’s total BS too. How many Factories do you see a ‘full’ capacity, or better yet, even running at 75% capacity..
    Sorry, but this President shall go down in the History Books as ‘The Great Fabricator’. He can just pull things out of the air and expect everyone to believe it. Soon it’ll be the ‘Great Welfare State’ . Then again, he must deserve another $4 million Vacation to Hawaii. They love him there, it’s another great welfare state (and yes, I’ve lived there for 13 years. Nothing in that state impress’s me).

  • gunnerv1

    obama is HALF white, ergo, I dislike the policies foisted upon us by the WHITE HALF, not the BLACK HALF! p.s.- if the “black” half is so great why did he not carry Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, or Georgia? These states have a VERY large “black” voting base! Color has NOTHING to do with it. Time to “fold” that old, tired, worn out “RACE” card! He has NO “redeeming qualities!”

  • Lonnie

    Unemployment, according to independent sources(not obama’s propagandists), is closer to 13%! GDP is about 1,3%! You need to quit guzzling that Kool Aid and do some research! Recovering economy? That is a pipe dream, from obama’s crack pipe! More people out of work or cut to part time! Even pelosi admitted that! She said “People getting cut to part time is a good thing! Those people will have more time to pursue their dreams!”

    What exactly is smart about voting for a man who accomplished nothing except be involved in scandals and won his senate seat through thuggery?

    You are the most uninformed Individual in all the conversation. You have to be kidding us, stop hating Obama, Really! This is the first President with more offense’s against him than any 10 presidents before him. He has racked up more debt that all of the previous presidents combined. He has, and is trampling our Constitution. Entered the American Presidency through Lies and trickery. He gave cell phones away to gain the dumb and misinformed votes he needed. He and his minions rigged the electronic voting systems. He is an Illegal alien him self, and this has been proven by Arizona’s Toughest Sheriff, Joe Arpio. His forensic team proved beyond a shadow of a dough t ,that his birth certificate was a layered copy done with computers, A proven fact! There are more than 100 misuses of executive orders that are also and Illegal act. Obama is a Brother of the Muslim Islamic Haters of christians. He has bowed to an Arabic King, something no president in the history of the USA has ever done. He is the dog that lies to our faces and his agenda for you is to spread the money around. Your money and mine.

    How do poor people even afford cars, insurance, maintenance? They should just use public transportation or dial a ride when they need to go to the doctor.
    Free gas will end up like free phones, used up right away on bullshit instead of being conserved for emergencies.

  • dondehoff

    If, and only if, free gas is in the offering to the poor (blacks, no less), then it must be controlled at the county or local level, wherein all recipients can be verified that they are in fact needy (yes, photo ID), and the amount must be strictly controlled, else “they” will be modifying vehicles as “transporters” to haul the free gas to localities where it can be sold at a discount, which could put the legitimate dealers out of business. And, how about free gas for the bank robbers and other criminal activity wherein vehicles are used? Those (useful idiots) receiving all of these “freebees” must realize all of this free stuff will cease, once the NWO groups are in power—-if you won’t work, you won’t eat—and if they are “infidel”s, they probably will also lose there heads. People, look at the “bigger picture” and not just at today and tomorrow—–with this administration, in the final analysis, there is no such thing as a “free lunch” (or gasoline). A final thought, will those entitled to free gas also demand a “free vehicle” (and brand new of course), in which to use the gas? I predict many congresspersons are going to get “run out of town on a rail”, this coming election cycle. In fact, everyone should be contacting their elected officials right away and demand this farce be stopped immediately.

  • DoubleDipBandit

    He did all that and he’s not even white!

  • William Carr

    a-Hem.

    First, this is a “hoax” site. The stories are click-bait pranks aimed at morons and are deliberately played up to make Right Wingers furious.

    Click on the “Obama releases new US Flag” if you need proof.

    The authors of the jokes are being a little cruel.

    They set up the prank to get Right Wingers frothing at the mouth; until they click on the dead giveway pranks and realize they’ve been played.

    Second, calling for someone to put the President “out of his misery”, is Sedition, and it’s illegal.

    Expect a friendly visit from the Secret Service if you continue like this.

    As a patriotic America, I remotely slap you for stupidity and disloyalty to America.

    It’s the bigots like you that are America’s biggest embarrassment.

    The Right Wing falls for this stuff easily, because, like Clint Eastwood, you don’t even see the REAL Obama; you see the “Invisible” Obama, the monster under your bed, the Man in the Empty Chair.

    A few tips:

    One; learn to think. It’s a good skill and might help you down the line if your job at McDonalds doesn’t pan out.

    Two; in America, if you have African ancestry, you are Black. By the laws of the old Confederate States, you’d be Black if you had 1/64th African ancestry.

    Three; there’s no way 14% of the population can vote in a minority President without the majority of the population also voting for the same candidate.

    Four; Obama was born in Hawaii; both Birth Certificates, the newspaper announcements, and the State of Hawaii say so.

    Five; The Economy is still rocky because of the Crash of 2008 under Bush’s policies. When Obama took Office, we were losing almost 800,000 jobs PER month.

    He stopped all that in four months, and we’ve been rebuilding ever since.

  • William Carr

    You mean the Reagan/Bush phone, don’t you?

    The program started under Ronald Reagan, on the premise that people needed a home phone so they could look for work. So of course, they got land-lines as cell phones were as rare as hen’s teeth then.

    Under G.W. Bush, the program expanded to cheap Cell phones.

    Obama simply has nothing to do with it.

    A President can’t simply strike down laws signed by his predecessors. Congress has to Repeal them.

    I really am sorry for you. You’re so caught up in the lies you believe in, you can’t even see the truth any more.

    Work through the logic with me. Obama didn’t sign any Bill into law creating “Obama Phones”, therefore… there aren’t any.

  • William Carr

    No. The fact you’d almost fall for this shows the danger to America from the Right Wing Hate Machine.

    The hoax is worded precisely to get Right Wingers furious.

    I can imagine the goons that write this stuff sitting around with laptops on their laps, egging each other on, trying to find the best phrasing to make Republican Blood boil.

  • William Carr

    Then don’t believe it. It’s a hoax.

  • William Carr

    Freedom of Speech, remember?

    They set up the Prank, but you fell for it.

  • William Carr

    Yeah, it’s a parody.

    But it’s NOT credible. It’s set up to trick the Right Wingers who believe anything Obama does is based on Racial favoritism.

    If you walked into this with a pre-programmed anti-Obama attitude, you’re on thin ice already.

    After all, it was Reagan and then Bush that set up the “phones for low income job seekers” program.

    Obama had nothing to do with it.

    People are still on food stamps because of the Crash of 2008 and all the jobs we lost because of G.W. Bush and his policies of War, War, War.

    Labor Participation is low because Baby Boomers are retiring at 10,000 per DAY; and those that retire before 64 are counted as able-bodied but not working.

    Community organizers, the “Black Panthers”, and the SEIU aren’t “manning” the voting stations.

    That’s either a Glenn Beck or Breibart hoax.

    The “New Black Panthers” seen at a polling station… all TWO of them… happen to live near and vote AT that polling station.

    They had the RIGHT to be there.

    But the RW media picks up one picture of two tough-looking black guys outside a polling station, and you all fall for it.

  • William Carr

    It’s a parody. The reason it struck home with you, is that you’ve been pre-programmed to believe hoaxes about Obama.

    It’s not that giving $2 Billion in free gas to any black person is realistic.

    It’s nowhere NEAR realistic.

    It’s just that you’ve been programmed to believe crap.

    You remind me of another Conservative that read a story that had already been debunked.

    But he liked the “sound” of it, and said it was a “useful Archetype”.

    I questioned him on that. I said “you KNOW that this was faked, that there was no truth in it. Why do you think it’s “useful”, and what is an “Archetype” ?

    I pressed him, saying “Is the term ‘Archetype’ the term you use when you want a story that will anger Conservatives and let you manipulate them? Does the little fact it’s false not bother you?”.

  • William Carr

    Ah… so you’re LITERALLY Race-ist.

    After all, you’re claiming African Americans are “the most failed race in work history”…

    So, you’re exposed as a Racist. And no doubt, proud of it !

    Your claim is laughable. African Americans were brought here as slaves, and when they were freed, were instantly impoverished.

    All the wealth their ancestors in Africa could have amassed was gone, and they had NOTHING.

    Many of them have painstakingly built lives and respectable incomes since then, generation after generation.

    Until the Jim Crow laws were struck down, they were fighting the good fight weighed down with lead and stumbling through knee deep mud.

    Innocent black men were arrested on false charges and then sold into work gangs until too old to work.

    That went on until 1942.

    So, yeah; Poverty sucks, and Reaganomics brought Poverty back, big-time.

    But it has nothing to do with skin color.

  • 42n81

    Maybe it isn’t dead from the neck up, but from seeing the videos of those getting the Obama phones, and the increase in food stamps, and other handouts.

    But no problem, keep working hard, so you can afford to pay for the goodies that so many want, and think that it is free

  • William Carr

    Um, “Decimate” is a Latin term for “kill one out of ten”.

  • William Carr

    Be honest. You’re a Site Admin and you’re toying with the silly fools.

  • William Carr

    Thanks for proving my point.

    I’m Irish.

    Google the surname “Carr”. Somewhere in Ireland there’s a crumbling old Castle with my name on it.

    When YOU make the comment that one particular race is “Lazy”… dude, that means you’re a Racist.

    This is literally what the term means;

    “Racism is generally defined as actions, practices or beliefs, or social or political systems that are based in view that sees the human species to be divided into races with shared traits, abilities, or qualities, such as personality, intellect, morality, or other cultural behavioral characteristics, and especially the belief that races can be ranked as inherently superior or inferior to others, or that members of different races should be treated differently.”

  • William Carr

    Oh, no… I think it’s smarta$$ Liberals setting up TeaBaggers just to watch them froth at the mouth.

  • William Carr

    Wait, what? A useful suggestion?

    Admin, you should BAN this person for being helpful !

  • William Carr

    Yes, and think how much Slavery helped them ! They got the opportunity to learn a trade !

    Oh, Johnny. Finally learning to read won’t help you if you don’t learn to understand what you read.

  • William Carr

    It’s the Republican Paul Ryan that obstinately refused to renew the unemployment insurance extension.

    For everybody, BTW; race has nothing to do with it.

    When Congress wakes up from all that eggnog, Democrats will be pounding to renew the Unemployment extension.

    Did you know the F-35 Jet was so buggy that for years, it couldn’t be flown at night or on a cloudy day?

    It’s high-tech, all right, but it’s buggy. The Budget for that was $1.2 Trillion dollars !

    There’s 3/4ths of that money left. Cancel it, fix our REAL problems.

  • William Harper

    No, I have nothing to do with the site and have rarely commented except on this story. The site clearly states it is satire, the stories always have strong hints that they aren’t true, and the comments are full of people screaming it isn’t true – yet folks are still showing their desperation to blame someone other than themselves for their problems by throwing out ridiculous responses (like going to war). I used to try to reason with them and explain that it isn’t true but they always flamed me so I decided to entertain myself with it while recovering from a major surgery. If someone is particularly mean I will engage them a bit more but, for the most part, I’m just having fun. I wish I could find a site where Democrats are as easy to pick on as the TP folks.

  • James

    Turns out… IT WAS!

  • William Carr

    Actually, no; Mr. Massie just doesn’t like them, period.

    He doesn’t have to make up a reason.

    And you shouldn’t take anything he says as Holy Writ.

    For example, his odd protest against appointing “czars”.

    Every President since FDR has appointed people to his Administration to fill specific jobs, using the term “czar”.

    It’s not the ACTUAL title, just a term of reference.

    This isn’t “arrogance”, unless you think all American Presidents are arrogant.

    And no, Obama doesn’t bypass Congress.

    Obama hasn’t “levied taxes”, “declared War”, or “written legislation” and then signed it himself.

    Those are the powers of Congress.

    The President hasn’t usurped any of them.

    The War Powers Act gives any President 60 days to quickly respond to a situation he deems affects America’s interests.

    Again, that’s not usurping the powers of Congress, since Congress passed the War Powers Act in the first place.

    It’s obvious that Obama Derangement Syndrome can affect Blacks too !

  • William Carr

    That’s it, keep a bright thought. Lean over, isn’t there something stuck down in the wood chipper? I bet you can pull it out… reach a little farther… farther…

  • William Carr

    Yes, what a disaster… 45 straight months of private sector Job Growth, the Auto makers saved from Bankruptcy, Wall Street setting records, the Economy recovering…

    We should have stuck with Bush and losing 750,000 jobs per month in a shattered Economy.

  • William Carr

    Well, that’s easy.

    “You People”: the people that believe hoaxes without blinking. Without any fact-checking.

    Reactions to this site vary by political persuasion:

    Conservative Reaction A: Fall for it, hook, line, and sinker. Grump, gripe, call for a Revolution !

    Conservative Reaction B: Realize it’s a parody, but comment it sounds very realistic.

    All Liberals: “Wha… oh, it’s a Parody. Hey, it looks like some Conservatives are actually crazy enough to fall for it. Let’s make fun of them.”

  • William Carr

    Prove it.

    The Obama Phone? No such thing. Reagan started that with land-lines, and G.W. Bush made it Cell Phones.

    The O-man, Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit. No resume, no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no understanding
    of how the economy works, no understanding of how the world works, no balls, nothing but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of real substance.

  • argh32

    He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects. The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides but is disclosed by his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people in Kenya . Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively.

    What he isn’t, not a genetic drop of, is ‘African-American,’ the descendant of enslaved
    Africans brought to America chained in slave ships. He hasn’t a single ancestor who was a slave. Instead, his Arab ancestors were slave owners. Slave-trading was the main Arab business in East Africa for centuries until the British ended it.

    Let that sink in: Obama is not the descendant of slaves, he is the descendant of slave owners. Thus he makes the perfect Liberal Messiah.

    Somebody needs to educate the o-man, “Socialism
    is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and
    the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”

  • AmVet

    The Defense budget is the last thing that should be
    touched. If you had any knowledge of our economy you would know that much of that money is disbursed to the millions of American that have jobs due to the direct connection with Our military. Building equipment, housing, supplying food, clothing, etc. creates millions of jobs for Americans who in turn spend their incomes for their family needs and pay taxes. Isn’t that better than giving them money to not work? Do you want to give up our freedoms to be governed by a foreign pig? Would you rather be defending Our Freedom fighting within our borders or on our enemy’s soil? I don’t hate Obama because he is half black; I hate him because he is not an American. You assume I’m not black, just as your rhetoric inclines me to believe you are black. Either way you need to do more studies on the Constitution and research just who Obama really is and his allegiances. The first defunding should be ObamaCare, the second is all
    of his Czars and Muslim appointees and the third would be banning the American Communist Party and the American Liberal Party both of which have assimilated with the once honorable Democratic Party. I am taking for granite that you did not know that it was the Democrats that hired the KKK after the Civil War to track down newly freed slaves and forced them to remain on the plantations or hung them for declaring their freedom, after all it was the Republicans that were responsible for the abolishment of slavery in the United States. Why do you think Obama types are re-writing our history books? They don’t want the new generations to know the real truth about the Democratic Party and the Communist goals. As for Clinton, I did not like him; but I did not hate hime either. We were fortunate that President Reagan beefed up our military after the Carter disaster as Clinton did the typical Democratic Party program to weaken our Defense Program.

    and when it was a phone line, the abuse was far less, now with cells the abuse is huge and you pay for it,

  • barry1817

    was a land phone for emergencies, wasn’t the abuse with that system that now exists.

    But then I guess you are ecstatic with the waste and fraud in this new system and with the people that get the phones and are neither grateful or responsible.

Hey, they grew the EBT/food stamp cards, give them free med. care, housing subsidies, school space, pay their utilities………what else can the bastards hand them……..Oh yeah……gasoline. If you look back 20 or 30 yrs, nobody would believe the crap they are doing today. Remember to a lefty the joke is only funny if everybody else pays for it.

  • Michael Bowler

    I assure you, emphatically, there are progressives out there, right this second, who think this should happen. I do believe that if there is a movement to provide the looters with free fuel, it will be through their EBT cards. That I can see happening.

    A looters only, free gas station would become a trashed, burnt out dump within a week or two. If the looters didn’t burn it because they didn’t get enough gas, some right minded individual would burn it, because it would be an affront to decent hard working people…and I, for one, would cheer him.

  • freedom lover

    I believe we need a law that would not allow people to vote if they receive government assistance or something for nothing. As it is a conflict of interest.

    I agree that the system is not being used as it was originally intended, to provide phone access to rural and sparsely populated communities.

  • Erin Stevenson

    Dr. White, as an educated man, you have to realize that people like Kim are a disservice to this country. They can’t even be bothered to recognize obvious parody when it smacks them in the face if it agrees with their worldview. They will never be convinced otherwise that it’s a joke, and will continue to tell their low information friends about it as if it were 100% true.

  • William Harper

    No disrespect intended Dr White but where do you the idea that America is the joke of the world? I travel a lot (38 countries in 2013) and I have yet to see this.

    The Daily Currant is an English language online satirical newspaper that covers global politics, business, technology, entertainment, science, health and media. It is accessible from over 190 countries worldwide – now including South Sudan.
    Our mission is to ridicule the timid ignorance which obstructs our progress, and promote intelligence – which presses forward.

    AmVet, I really love what you are saying. However, you do need to check your history in terms or Reagan and Carter. Reagan was the 40th and Clinton the 42nd so Reagan could not have cleaned up Clinton’s mess. That would have been GW Bush that had to clean up the Clinton mess.

    baggers don’t fall for Onion style articles. However when read at face value, the Currant article sounds true until you get to the end which has the sentence about just letting Black people pump for free and White people being charged. That caps it as a satirical piece. I have Liberal friends who fall for satirical pieces all the time.

  • AmVet

    trish87109, Thank you for your response. If you read the last sentence again you will see that I did not put the Presidents in the wrong order. Reagan beefed up our military after Carter cut the military budget. Clinton started cutting the budget as soon as he got in office and now Obama is doing his best to weaken our military. That’s why I consider them pro-communist.
