I like the way you put that "rent and bills and food". Well, you know what, "bills" encompasses a lot of things. I also notice you didn't include any money put aside for emergencies. And, again, mobile data access is not a necessity, it is a luxury. A cell phone and cell service can substitute, and may be better than, home phone service, but the data connectivity is not needed and is, in fact, a luxury.
You never leave your house and communicate with the outside world with nothing more than your smart phone, right? I mean, that is the only reason I can see for insisting that one requires a smart phone with data access to communicate with the outside world, especially considering that one can simply go outside and interact with the outside world, you fucking, spoiled little shit.
You know, shithead, I see people every day who live here in America without smart phones and without computers. You know how they do it? They have a regular cell phone, they make friends with their neighbors, and they go to a fucking library to use a computer. These people live in crappy neighborhoods, and are poor. But, you know what they don't have and don't need to go about their lives? Smart phones, laptops, home computers, and mobile data access.
You are complaining that they are not able to afford a luxury good, when they are busy spending their money on the necessities of life. Oh, and a lot of these people will have one, maybe two cell phones per HOUSEHOLD, which may consist of three generations.
I suggest you and your self-righteous ilk actually interact with the poor some time. And, I don't mean the drug dealers, drug addicted strippers, pimps, whores, and assorted other criminal lowlifes you get your jollies with, I mean the actual working poor. I have been one and I can tell you have never been. I have no doubt that you are an over-entitled college student who is still busy sucking on mommy's tit and fucking off in school to get a real job and is probably too scared to actually talk to a real poor person.
You are an ignorant, over-entitled, spoiled, pissant with delusions of helping the poor by giving them things they don't need but you think are necessities. You would give the poor polo mallets when what they really want is food, shelter, and decent paying jobs.
