Comcast to offer subsidized Internet service to low-income families

If you live in an area served by Comcast and your kids receive free lunches at school through the National School Lunch Program, you may qualify for a new Internet service from Comcast, which costs just $9.95 a month.

Along with the requirements above, to be eligible for the specially discounted service, dubbed Internet Essentials, you must also not have signed up for a Comcast Internet hookup over the last 90 days, and you must not have an overdue Comcast bill or still be hanging onto Comcast equipment that’s supposed to be returned.

    I spent 10 years in California prisons and know the Pelican Bay SHU personally. I wrote a drug war novel Roll Call by Glenn Langohr to show the public the path we are on by incarcerating petty criminals is only breeding bigger ones who are displaced from society when they are released. The U.S is not the leaders of the free world; we are the leaders of the incarcerated world! I started http://www.lockdownpublishing.com  when I got out of prison to help other prisoners change their lives through writing. http://youtu.be/jEQ8Gh1-bFs  Here is the NY Review Kirkus Discoveries, Nielsen Business Media

    A harrowing, down-and-dirty depiction—sometimes reminiscent of Steven Soderbergh’s Traffic—of America’s war on drugs, by former dealer and California artist Langohr.
     
    I’m also writing over 50 California prisoners to inspire them to turn their lives around through writing. I want interviews and publicity as I am broke out of prison and can’t afford the regular channels…

    Comcast can give the service to poor families. As long as they tolerate the Doyle’s socialist obamination ideas and keep phil graham and his loonies on the job they can all go straight to hell.
