A Texan's Answer to Welfare

I went to my email inbox, and got a nugget of joy from a friend a couple counties over. I'd wager there are more than just a few people who think this should go on.

This is is good. Read to the end. Should work in Washington also.

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.


  1. Diane:
    Now This is EPIC!

    I could NOT agree THESE things (you mention), and maybe the lazy-ass welfare leeches won't want to remain on "government assitance".
    Welcome (back) to America...
    (with a *C* and not a *K*)

    It just makes SO much's got to be habit-forming!

    Well done, "Sis"

    Stay safe and keep cool down there.
    (God Bless Texas)

  2. I thought it was pretty darn good - but you know it won't happen.. due to "being mean" to people (somehow making people do stuff for what they get is bad?) There's a group on facebook - think the name is 'drug testing for welfare' that a friend started. She's a foster mom, who's adopted 5 kids that she's had as fosters. And guess what was the matter with babymomma most of the time? she has 6 kids under the age of 9.

    cool? not until November I bet!
