Marcus Antwan and Kevin

Marcus Antwan and Kevin Jamell.....I'm shocked! Since hopefully both of you will be locked up for a good while does this mean we can put your welfare checks back in the kitty? I suspect you won't be needing them food stamps and Obamaphones either.

Does the Obamaphone program

Does the Obamaphone program have a system for tracking and cutting service for "beneficiaries" who get incarcerated? I mean it ain't like they are going to get any calls for a job interview.......just like the rest of the Obamaphone folks. That WAS the excuse for this government giveaway program wasn't it?
