"She started the popular myth". Here you admit this is fake.
"so you can blame the original messenger". Two things here: she didn't start this, it goes back to an e-mail rumor in 2009 and you share responsibility in spreading a falsehood.
The Obama phone myth.
Q: Has the Obama administration started a program to use "taxpayer money" to give free cell phones to welfare recipients?
A: No. Low-income households have been eligible for discounted telephone service for more than a decade. But the program is funded by telecom companies, not by taxes, and the president has nothing to do with it.
Welfare recipients, and others, can receive a free cell phone, but the program is not funded by the government or taxpayer money and it’s hardly new.

You don't how these people voted; you think you do but you don't. And even if all of them voted for Obama so what? It's not the first time these kind of frenzy happens. Also, don't you think that some Republicans do this too?
I've never gone shopping in a store in Black Friday, I do it online.
I'm in good company, stronzo, knowing that General Powell voted for Obama and he knows what he was talking about.
Nowhere in the article or video says or shows something about pay.
"A Friday motions hearing in the bribery case of former Gwinnett County Commissioner Kevin Kenerly revealed that prosecutors have granted immunity to the developer who allegedly slipped Kenerly $1 million." Red flag right there.
I already refuted your basic argument which is, as you wrote, "the devastation of our oil industry, coal industry and increased damaging regulations regarding emissions in the casue of "global warming" is proof that there are groups of people who are using climate change to promote their agenda of controlling our lives and our actions", and your other gem: "shutting down our economy" by quoting an article from none other than (drum roll) THE WALL STREET JOURNAL.
And regarding the casue of global warming, GO TO THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCES' WEBSITE AND READ THE SECTION "AMERICA'S CLIMATE CHOICES."
Thank you Mr. Wade for your reply.
Here is a quote from Rex W. Tillerson, CEO of Exxon Mobil: ''We recognize that climate change is a serious issue,'' Mr. Tillerson said in a 2006 interview, pointing to a company report that acknowledged the link between the consumption of fossil fuels and rising global temperatures. ''We recognize that greenhouse gas emissions are one of the factors affecting climate change.''
And these two paragraphs from a well known U.S. newspaper, dated February 8, 2012: "An energy boom is revving up the U.S. economy. The use of new drilling techniques to tap oil and gas in shale rocks far underground helped add about 158,500 new oil and gas jobs over the past five years, and economists think it has created even more jobs in companies supplying the energy industry and in the broader service industry. U.S. oil production is rising for the first time in decades. Natural gas has become so plentiful that prices recently plunged to a 10-year low."
"The economic benefits of rising energy production are spreading far beyond the traditional oil patch, to Ohio and Pennsylvania, Nebraska and New York, North Carolina and Idaho. Truck drivers from pretty much anywhere can find work related to the surging energy business. Private-equity firms completed $24.8 billion of energy deals of all types last year, up from $8.5 billion in 2010, according to data tracker Preqin. Manufacturing plants are returning to the U.S. to take advantage of cheap natural gas, spurring major investments in petrochemical and steel production in the Gulf Coast and Midwest."
Go ahead and Google them.
"I do not deny global warming, but I don't want the issue to be used by the left as a political tool to control my life and my actions. I simply want the truth."
There are no conspiracies here. The truth, Mr. Wade, is that the vast majority of scientists worldwide (here included the United States National Academy of Science) agree that global warming is most likely caused by human activity. The controversy happens in the media and is pushed by organizations linked to some business interests.
