PUT ME IN CHARGE …
Put me in charge of food stamps. I’d get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho’s, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job. …
Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I’d do is to get women Norplant birth control implants or tubal ligation. Then, we’ll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, or smoke, then get a job.
Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your home” will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.
In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a “government” job. It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you. We will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the “common good..”
Before you write that I’ve violated someone’s rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules. Before you say that this would be “demeaning” and ruin their “self esteem,” consider that it wasn’t that long ago that taking someone else’s money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self esteem.
If we are expected to pay for other people’s mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.
AND While you are on Gov’t subsistence, you no longer can VOTE! Yes, that is correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of interest. You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Gov’t welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job.
Seriously this post was written by a 21 year old who probably never held a job, doesn’t have a family and has never had to hack it a day on her own…
I’m 24, live in a house, am married, have three children didn’t need state assistance until some employment cut backs… so this post irritates me because when I was growing up I had a dead beat father who never paid his court mandated child support leaving my mother to apply for assistance just to help us get bye. So for some never done a hard day work in their life … a BIG F U is for you and try living someone’s life before regulating it … I work and my husband work and we are seeking assistance cause the price of living has gone up, the price of life has gone up and for your post to start stating what you can do to someone’s body … you’ve crossed some heavy lines… well here’s my rant… I don’t care if you agree with me and I’ll stand my ground.
Don’t get me wrong there are people that do abuse the system but there isn’t a define way to fix that yet so until you get it down don’t brandish the one’s who truly need it and don’t abuse it.
