    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 Hos, 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 legations. 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.
