I think it's annoying, to say the least. Why does it show it three times?

don't know, but I just find it funny that someone would vote for Obama just for getting a free phone.

It's not altogether surprising. Election goodies and pork barrel politics has always been a part of elections.

Wait..your teacher bribed you to not say anything bad about him/her? Is that what that says?

doesn't matter who bribed him. the point is the bribe, not the story behind it.

Its helpful if you looking something up before complaining about it. This is a government program that began in 1985, and provides phones for low income Americans. Its not for supporting Obama.
