Obama health care is not Free...I t forces you to buy your own or the government can charge you with a crime. Where do people get the Idea Heath care would be free. It is not free in any country. Check the fine print and the facts before you spout these falxe thoughts
I noticed most of the things on the list are things I wouldn't use anyway. Generally, I agree with those that say you can't get anything for free and you get what you pay for. There are some things though I have been able to get for free such as DVDs from the library. I am fortunate to have the best library in my state in my city. Instead of renting DVS, I can check out an unlimited number of DVDs from the library, and yes they have the new releases. Between the DVDs, music and books I check to, I literally save thousands of dollars a year. One year I calculated I saved $5,000. I call it creating my own tax break. For most people the $20 a year library tax is the best $20 one ever spends in taxes, considering the thousands you get back.
Otherwise I say beware of something that seems to be too good to be true. Generally they are. Have you noticed that it's only greedy people who get taken in by scam artists? It's why I don't feel sorry for those "victims". If you actually believe someone will gfive you thousands of dollars for nothing, than you pretty much have what is coming to you.
Really the only thing that is free is the air you breath!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
sounds like obama is infiltrating the free market now WHY PAY???? get it for free
WHY WORK??? let someone work for you
WHY GET OUT OF BED IN THE MORNING??? Let idiot whitey do it for you
WHY VOTE???? darn, had to throw that one in there.....so we can elect communists to destroy the best thing that worthless, weak and lazy people ever had america
OMG the crap of this article is downright hilarious!
Smartphone - sure you can get one for free. You just pay for it twice over in the two year agreement. MORONS.
Free car trip: yeah, good luck getting a CHEAP flight back for a family that ultimately cost less than renting a car and the gas. MORONS.
Dining out w/kids: Unless you have half a dozen kids or more, this is a wash with cooking in. And if you have half a dozen kids or more, you have your own issues. MORONS.
Free shipping: Sure, they just bumped the price up of the item to cover that and added a little extra hoping you wouldn't notice. MORONS.
Amazon Prime movies: must mean that Amazon Prime is free, right? WRONG MORONS.
So many people think a "free" phone is free.. Please people, get a CLUE. Do you REALLY think these companies are giving away $600 phones for nothing? 24 months @ $90 per month so you can text and talk and check the weather from anywhere.. Sounds to me like that phone is costing you $2200.
Now go break or lose the phone.. if you opted out of insurance, you will pay full price for the replacement. $400-$800. If you decide you can't afford that, you get to pay the ETF (Early Termination Fee) which is upwards of $400 depending on the length of contract left. Or of course you can continue to pay the $90 per month without the benefit of using the phone.
Insurance isn't much better.. look at the iPhone.. $11 per month for insurance, $170 to replace a broken or lost phone.. yes, cheaper than the $599-$699 for the retail phone, but not by that much after two years of paying the premiums..
ANY Way you look at it you are paying.. They get their money in the end.
Cell phones free? Give me a break. If we bought them for a fair price we would more than save the difference in fees.
Some people's kids should be charged double or triple. It is not the children's fault its the parents. Why would you think it is ok for them to run circles around other people tables, kick the back of their booth, scream and/or cry? I was once with a couple who whipped out the diapers and changed their kid on the freakin table. Sheesh.
Any time someone gets something for 'free' the rest of us pay for it. Don't even get me started on 'free' government services. I imagine some 'free' government services cost the taxpayers (or their children, grandchildren, etc) 5 or 10 times more than it would have cost to buy at fair market value.
I agree this article is not useful at all! Come on, don't you have anything better?
Some of you guys need to take an economics class. It sounds like you think all these freebies from our Federal Gov't is giving away with $$$$ we do not have is REALLY FREE. You guys will be paying for it with interest. Your share of the tab is already over $50,000 each. One day the rest of the world is going to say "pay up"!!!!!!!!!!
