This whole thing is so transparent
its embarressing that the fellow who wrote this piece actually works for techrepublic...this is plane and simple a shakedown of APPLE by the anti business, anti free market by the this whitehouse and congress...open your bloody eye dude...even if there was a significant reception problem, what business does government sticking their unconstitutional nose in here?

Remember toyota...remember after all the facts were in it turned out a bunch of morons were stepping on the gas peddle and not the brake?

None of this is about some incidental tech glitch in phone...
its about destroying jobs and prosperity and free market...PERIOD..

oh and by the way, when all the government worshippers need their next piece of technology, have them call Chuck Schumer, Im sure a man who has never held real job or produced ANYTHING in his life can help them out.

What a joke. Wake up dude.

max, that's why I put it in quotes.

by CharlieSpencer In reply to A couple of thoughts on g ...

Sadly, Merriam-Webster says:

1. a: the state or condition of being entitled : right
1. b: a right to benefits specified especially by law or contract
2. a government program providing benefits to members of a specified group; also: funds supporting or distributed by such a program

To me, it sounds like that's also what most political speakers mean by the term too. I used the term facetiously, to indicate a government program that mandates who must pay into it and that redirects the money to those specified as program beneficiaries, regardless of those beneficiaries' participation on the front end.

Maybe the left should listen to one of their own...

"The friendliness and charity of our countrymen can always be relied upon to relieve their fellow-citizens in misfortune. This has been repeatedly and quite lately demonstrated. Federal aid in such cases encourages the expectation of paternal care on the part of the Government and weakens the sturdiness of our national character, while it prevents the indulgence among our people of that kindly sentiment and conduct which strengthens the bonds of a common brotherhood." - President Grover Cleveland

Lindsey Graham agrees with you

by NickNielsen In reply to Historical quibble, and m ...

On four occasions, Graham met with Tea Party groups. The first, in his Senate office, was "very, very contentious," he recalled. During a later meeting, in Charleston, Graham said he challenged them: " 'What do you want to do? You take back your country — and do what with it?' . . . Everybody went from being kind of hostile to just dead silent.

"Graham earlier said: The problem with the Tea Party, I think it's just unsustainable because they can never come up with a coherent vision for governing the country. It will die out." Now he said, in a tone of casual lament: "We don't have a lot of Reagan-type leaders in our party. Remember Ronald Reagan Democrats? I want a Republican that can attract Democrats." Chortling, he added, "Ronald Reagan would have a hard time getting elected as a Republican today."

Max, an honest question

by mr_m_sween In reply to "Max, you're a tea bagger ...

I did a quick look up on wiki : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tea_Party_movement#Tea_Party_agenda:_Contract_from_America

Most of the stuff on the page I couldnt give a darn about, since I refuse to deal with anything other than fact. Since you seem more knowledgeable on the movement than I can you tell me if the goals of the movement are adequately defined in the section regarding the "Contract from America"?
Also, perhaps you are aware of the actual official website since there seems to be multiple ones?

I reserve my opinion on the group until I can analyze their actual goals.

There is no "official" contact, Web site, or office

by maxwell edison In reply to Max, an honest question

The Tea Party is not an official political party, per se, but rather a political movement.

In a nutshell, it consists of people who are sick and tired of government interference and control into their lives. It got its name from the Boston Tea Party, which was a symbolic protest during the founding days of our republic. I don't know who first coined the term Tea Party.

Less government, less taxes, more individual choice, more individual liberty, etc. Principles worthy of ridicule? I think not.

George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, George Mason, Benjamin Franklin, et all, would all be enthusiastic supporters of such a movement. Today, however, they'd be ridiculed along with the rest of them. When did freedom and liberty become bad things to strive for?

My blood is boiling right now

by maxwell edison In reply to dawgit

I am so !@#$%^& sick of people who make such disparaging claims, who make charges of racism where there is none (can you spell NAACP?), etc.......

I better go watch a movie, or something, before I post a message I might later regret.

Yeah

I remain aware of that latest stuff.

Medicate. Something liquid in a tumbler. And take care to keep the ammunition separate.
