Well written post and I couldn't agree more. The economic conditions that this woman and many others find themselves in recently are a direct result of government policies that discourage capitalism and economic growth. And instead of addressing these issues, bureaucrats are more than happy to encourage government dependency among the victims of the economic collapse. I'm sure if this woman had a decent education and good job, she would be happy to pay for her own phone. By the way, I've seen the phones that she is referring to and they are as low-grade as you can find, but at least you can make calls on them.
