    “Earnest money.” Ray doesn’t have much, but he feels the need to prove he’s no freeloader.

    So many Veterans homeless. Many of them from just the most recent wars.

    If the check doesn’t clear, the bank’ll charge a $63 overdraft fee.

    @Travis Bickel

    I owe you a proper reply to your reply to my reply a few days ago, but probably won’t get to it this week. (Won’t agree with 90-95% of it.) What’s an OBAMAPHONE? I know telephone, microphone, and Anglophone, but not that one.

    I could only pay $100 last month to my friend. Before that I spent about a month living in a storage unit. (It had power inside and a water spigot outside, so it could have been worse.)

    Likely meant Obamaphobe, but who’s counting.

    “Where’s the Bank of The Nile?”

    Many of them find it difficult to find work since their in service training, eg medic, doesn’t count for jobs,eg. EMT. Still more lost their jobs despite a promise to hold them until they returned from much longer service stints then were ever originally intended. My next door neighbor was lucky enough to have a job when he left and have his boss hold it for him through three tours. Honor such as that on both sides would serve the country well.

    Maybe Safelink phones?


    A common misconception is that they are government phones, paid for with taxes. Safelink is a commercial enterprise funded by fees which are found on all phone bills. Kind of like the E-911 fees. (One might argue that that is still a de facto “tax” of sorts.)

    Ray reps another kind of soldier, one damaged and in need of repair BEFORE he will find meaningful work. They need to be treated. I hope there is general agreement on that need and no whining about other areas of health care for the term of the comic’s focus. DOD can syphon some money from drones focus on returning their warriors to health.

    I’ll buy that.


    No, wait, I can’t. That $100 was all I had until next month. And then I get only $200.

    It is a lie. It should be called the W-phone, or Ronniephone:

    “Obamaphone” is a term, often used pejoratively to refer to a program (actually introduced during the BUSH administration) to provide basic (minimal) cell phone service for poor people. One chief aim is to make sure they are able to contact emergency services when needed. These are also called “Lifeline” phones. See http://obamaphone.net/

    It may show a detachment with current rental rates, but it doesn’t show a want of feeling.
