Me In Charge!
This was in the Waco Tribune Herald,
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 ligations. Then, we’ll test recipients for
drugs, alcohol, and nicotine and document all tattoos and piercings. If you
want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, smoke, or get tattoos and piercings,
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 government assistance, 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 government welfare check.
If you want to vote, then get a job.
