Put Me in Charge (re-published)

Sometimes we read our mail and find a gem.
I cannot offer proof of the authorship of this article.
There is nothing on Snopes.com.
I, therefore, offer this as is.
Read–think about–comment.

This was written by a 21 yr old female who gets it. It’s her future she’s worried about and this is how she feels about the social welfare big government state that she’s being forced to live in! These solutions are just common sense in her opinion.

This was in the Waco Tribune Herald, Waco , TX.
It was published November 18, 2010 in Letters to the Editor, “Fixing Social Security; Put me in charge of welfare, Medicare and housing grants” If you subscribe there was a followup letter, January 09, 2011 in Letters to the Editor, “Put us all in charge, our moral landscape, No COLA but free rides offered?” (comment: Put us all in charge … The idea that the proposals outlined in my Nov. 18 letter [“Put me in charge”] were “punitive” — to quote the Jan. 1 Tribune editorial “Our choices for top story of 2010” — proves that the Tribune is still playing an Austin tune …)

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.

Now, if you have the guts – PASS IT ON… Stand up my friends, Aloha
