Heheh! You've reminded me of an email message i sent to friends and family recently. Pardon the cut and paste, but you may find it humorous:
Now that a helplessly addicted or profoundly nescient American electorate has effectively ignored the results of the administration’s policies during the last four years, and reelected Obama, in spite of their own better interests, I make the following predictions:
Obamaphones that are given out, with limited minutes, to welfare and food stamp recipients will be replaced with iPhone 6’s with touch pads having only icons, so that those who can’t read, write or count won’t have to learn how, and aren’t unfairly discriminated against.

These new Obamaphones will come customized and preloaded with the following app’s; each with it’s associated icon:
1 – The first, of course, would be the EBT icon resembling a $100 dollar bill. Tapping this icon automatically applies the Obamaphone owner for their monthly welfare payment to be made electronically credited to their EBT card, without forcing the recipient to have to get up off the couch.

2 – The next would be an icon that looks like a nice piece of three-layer cake. Tapping this icon would automatically fill out all the paperwork and submit it electronically to the Dept. of Ag. Resulting in the maximum quota of food stamps to be sent to the Obamaphone owner, (Unlike the EBT payments, food stamps can be traded for cash, so the recipient can purchase cigarettes, booze and drugs).
3 – There will also be an icon that looks like a house, and when the Obamaphone owner taps on this icon, tax payer’s money in the national treasury will automatically be transferred to landlords who offer Section 8 housing, so that the poor recipient doesn’t have to pay for rent or utilities.

4 – There will be icons of a pill and a condom that the Obamaphone owner can tap to locate the closest source of free birth control, and of course, a baby icon with a red circle and slash, that will direct the Obamaphone owner to the nearest office of Planned Parenthood for their free abortions, when the lust of the moment precludes any idea of postponing copulation long enough to use the pill or condom icons.
5 – The icon with the cap and gown on it, is obviously the automated government student loan icon, that allows the Obamaphone owner to borrow more money than they can pay back, to use on living and entertainment expenses and even educational expenses if they choose. …(cont)

…And there will be an associated icon of the back of a fist, with the middle finger extended. This is the icon that allows the graduate or dropout to duck their responsibility to repay the loan until their debt will be forgiven by their government plantation overlords.
6 – No Obamaphone will be complete without the up-arrow icon that will change from red to green whenever Apple upgrades to the next iteration of the iPhone. One tap on this icon, once it is green, will guarantee a brand new ObamaiPhone be express shipped to the Obamaphone owner, complete with any new buttons for new social subsidies, freebies and give-aways.

7 – And finally there will likely eventually be a coordinated effort between Apple Inc. and “Toto Aquia”, the manufacturers of high performance toilets, to develop a new app with an icon of either a t urd or a bare b utt to be used by the Obamaphone owner’s who finally devolve to the point of being incapable of wiping their own a s s.
President Obama promises to move the country forward with his recycled pledge of five million green jobs. But in the real world, small businesses are struggling to stay afloat as they deal with the fiscal wreckage of this administration's disastrous venture socialism. Here's the tale of just one Colorado company victimized by the Obama Department of Energy (DOE).

Colorado Distribution Group is a privately held storage and shipping company based in Denver. Thanks to hope-a-nomics, its warehouse is saddled with nearly 7,000 pallets of federally subsidized solar panels (one-third of which are completely spoiled and unsalable), along with related detritus such as...
