A Texan's Solution to Welfare

This was in the Waco Tribune Herald, Waco , TX Nov 18, 2010




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

tats 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 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.

That is the worst load of uneducated, barbarous, black-souled, spew I have ever read. For shame. The measure of a man is how well he cares for women, children, the weak, and the oppressed. Read by what measure men will be judged on the Last Day, and when you truly understand that your eyes will be opened to the horror of this post.

I agree with you to a point. For example, if someone is unable to care for themselves, we should take care of them. If they are UNWILLING to take care of themselves, that's were I draw the line.

By the way, this was from a chain email. I didn't author it. I thought it held humor from a stereotypical Bush/Cheney Texas rancher, but what do I know?
