#YouMightBeARepublican: If you are awesome at hijacking lame liberal hashtags; Truth wins again

Bless their hearts, the Left will never learn, will they? They offered up the lame #YouMightBeARepublican hashtag with gems like these:

Yuk, yuk, yuk! Sigh.

Happy warriors swiftly hijacked the Left’s pitiful and flailing hashtag with truth.

As do we! And we love all your tweets, happy warriors. More, please!

Keep the fun coming! Truth to power? You betcha.

    #YouMightBeARepublican: if you don’t have a Obama Phone.

      #YouMightBeARepublican: if you don’t have a Obama Phone…..but are paying for 5 other people’s “free” phones.

      You left off the ending.

      • http://twitter.com/redsoxunixgeek Smitty 

        My Obama Phone and Obama iPad thank you for your contributions… Oh wait, as a Liberal I also buy my own devices that I use, and the Obama Phone is just a non issue to be outraged about?

        • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

          You are also paying for them in your phone bill. The difference is that you believe that having the money taken against your will and given to others is charity.

          • http://twitter.com/redsoxunixgeek Smitty 

            Yes I am. the GOP legislature has enacted the highest taxes (20%) on my monthly wireless bill. So maybe I should call this the Utah Republican Phone as opposed to the “Obama Phone” and since the Wireless Plans were set up under Bush I should call it the Bush Phone plan…

          • https://twitter.com/tweetyuo Tangchung

            Yeah, call the hand out free phone whatever trips your trigger ace. Again, #YouMightBeARepublican: if you don’t have a Obama phone.
            You see a person with a Obama phone most likely is a liberal democrat milking the system.

          • lainer51

            OMG – did you graduate? Yes I am… blah, blah, blah and since the blah, blah, blah, up under Bush blah, blah, blah.

          • http://twitter.com/redsoxunixgeek Smitty 

            Ok, Look and read closely:

            There is one problem with the Obama Phone: It doesn’t exist.

            Since 2009, there has been a myth that Obama created a program
            to provide free phones to low-income Americans at taxpayer expense.
            There is, in fact, a government program that will provide low-income
            people with a free or low cost cell phone. It was started in 2008 under George W. Bush.

            The idea of providing low-income individuals with subsidized phone service was originated in the Reagan administration
            following the break-up of AT&T in 1984. (It was expanded and
            formalized by the Telecommunications Act of 1996.) The program is paid for by telecommunications companies through an independent non-profit, not through tax revenue.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            “It’s Bushs’ fault!” How…typical.

            The Lifeline program started under Reagan, not Bush. The requirement for *all* carriers (including wireless) to provide Lifeline service came from the FCC during the *CLINTON* administration, not the Bush administration.

            Typical #lowinfolib, blindly parroting talking points.

          • http://twitter.com/redsoxunixgeek Smitty 

            Here, let me put this here so you can actually see how it applies:

            There is, in fact, a government program that will provide low-income
            people with a free or low cost cell phone. It was started in 2008 under George W. Bush.

            Regan, Clinton, Bush,…. Miss where Obama had anything to do with it….

            Typical #LowInfoNeoCon missing the reading comprehension of a 3rd Grader.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Speaking of reading comprehension, I see where you completely missed where the requirement was extended to ALL carriers during the Clinton administration.

            Typical #LowInfoNeoConLib missing the reading comprehension of a 3rd Grader

            Fixed that for ya.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            You’re funny. I don’t recall people running around, talking about their ‘free Bush Phone’. Two years ago, I was selling pay-as-you-go phone time, to people that had, what they themselves referred to as, ‘The Obama Phone’.

            And by the way, the program initially started with Reagan, but those were land lines, to give people who didn’t have a phone line the opportunity to have one, in the event of an emergency.

          • JINNASH

            Obama has gutted requirements for welfare and other benefits. Its called Obama phone by HIS SUPPORTERS. They ADMIT to voting for him to get money, etc.

          • carla5731

            Obama supporter Michelle Dowery showed up at a Romney campaign event last fall with a big anti-Romney sign and a lot of love for what she called her “Obama phone.” She’s the person who added that phrase to our colloquial speech and gave it the context that irritates you.

            If you want to be mad at someone it should be Ms. Dowery. She not only incorrectly identified Obama as the generous source of her free phone, she used it as her reason for supporting him.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            According to a recent interview with Alex Jones (haha) Ms. Dowery’s not planning on voting for Obama a third time….

          • JINNASH

            Not true. I know social workers who have intructed people on how to get them.

          • kim

            1. It was a program intended so that low income people would have access to 911, even though they could not afford phone service. Since that time it has expanded to cell phones, we ARE taxed at 17% on our phone bills to pay for it and last year we spent 2 billion for it. So while one started it for a reason, another expanded it for redistribution

          • SpinMeNot

            You are so wrong, other folks have corrected all your errors except one —

            Participation in the program is required by law, for all telco carriers that provide any form of telecommunication service between states. It is also required for a number of non-US international carriers. The law does not specify the source of the monies contributed. Most of the carriers that I have first hand experience with pass the cost onto paying subscribers via a surcharge to their monthly bill. At one point, you could call and “remove” yourself from participation, with some of the carriers; i don’t know if that can still be done.

            I’m happy to pay the small amount each month, as it does provide phones to individuals with a genuine need, as opposed to people that simply chose not work, rather than take a low-wage job.

            When talking about the Legislature, I was talking about the Utah STATE Legislature. Not Congress. Maybe you could have picked up on that with some reading comprehension.

        • https://twitter.com/tweetyuo Tangchung

    • Rob

      So 97% of the black population votes Democrat and 55% of the white population votes Republican.
      Republicans freed the slaves, democrats formed the KKK.
      We aren’t saying black people are dumb but that they are LIED TO. That Republicans are all about white people.
      If it was the case, 97% of white people would vote Republican.

    You’re a dumbass. Plain and simple. It has NOTHING to do with gays getting married.

  • TexSizzle

    Aren’t you precious? As long as they are of legal age, they have the right to marry anyone of the opposite sex who is of legal age and not already in a marriage or closely related to them, who wishes to marry them — same as heterosexuals. As I stated previously, they don’t want to get married; they want to change the definition of marriage.

    they have the right to marry anyone of the opposite sex- why would gays want to do that? perhaps you are thinking of converting them?

  • mheathman

    Mr. Cocks,

    The example of freedom of speech I wrote about is an analogy. I used the word “like” to compare the two situations. I am not saying people are taking away freedom, rather comparing the two. Pick any amendment you want and tell people they have the right to express it. Then go vote for it and stifle that amendment so they can’t exercise it. Same thing as saying you have the right to get married but then voting to block that right. Get it through your thick head, Cocks. No pun intended.

  • mheathman

    Mr. Cocks,

    Newsflash: Gays can’t get married to a person of the opposite sex. There are numerous studies that indicate how the hypothalamus is different from gays and straight people. If you don’t know what that means, I suggest you pick up science journals and acquire knowledge about the intricacies of the human brain. You just have to do a google search of SCHOLARLY articles (and don’t get your information from a religious website).

    Then again, you republicans don’t agree with science. So I guess you are just going to quote from the Bible to “prove” your point.

  • mheathman

    Fine. Here’s a definition of marriage: two PEOPLE getting married. You can specify the words “of same species” for retards like yourself. Only a pervert like you would think of marrying your dog and television. You certainly have a bestiality problem. You are a sick man, koolaid adams.

  • mheathman

    I am a homophobe and I support the rights of gays to get married? That doesn’t make sense. On the contrary, you are a homophobe for stifling their rights by using a lame excuse to protect “definition of marriage”.

  • Debra Blouin

    Perhaps you can give a scholarly definition of homophobe? If I break it down etymologically, homo means sameness (kinda) and phobe relates to fear (as in phobia). So a homophobe should be one who fears those who are either the same as him or the same as each other. That is, unless you are using homo in the slang pejorative sense, which is a slur AGAINST gays. So what is it???

  • TexSizzle

    No, and I don’t appreciate the one who apparently thought he could convert me. What I said, repeatedly, is that they have the same rights as heterosexuals, but that’s not enough for them: They want definitions and laws changed for them. Bless your heart.
