I'm paying for this, WHY, exactly?
Cell phones are not a "human right;" they are a convenience. For that matter, a telephone is a convenience. You might need one to work (in which case, it's tax-deductible), but you don't need one to live.
That's why I'm wondering why, in the name of a Vulcan deity conning a tugboat, my tax dollars are subsidizing cell phones for the poor.
Anyone have an explanation or elucidation, on this net-widening of necessities for the masses.
