The New iPhone vs. More Important Things

Just this month, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives voted to slash $40 billion from the federal food stamp program. The unemployment rate in the U.S. is still high, and the economy is still slow. Many people are still without health care. Homeless shelters are actually closing in some cities.

Oh, and the new iPhone 5s has sold out! The price is around $600, and more if you want extra features. And it’s sold out. Yes, that many people bought it as soon as it was available.

Do you really need a $600 phone?

Where are our priorities?
