A Texan's Answer To Welfare
Put me in charge of :
Get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho's, just money for 50-pound bags of rice, beans, cheese ' all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak ' frozen pizza, then get a job.
Get women birth control ' men condoms (for free). Test recipients for drugs, alcohol, ' nicotine, document all tattoos ' piercings. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, smoke or get tats and piercings; then get a job.
Ever live in 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.
Either present a check stub from a job weekly or report to a "government" job. It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting ' repairing public housing, whatever we find for you.. We will sell your 22 inch rims ' low profile tires, your blasting stereo ' speakers and put that money toward the common good.
Realize that all of this is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules... Before you say this would be "demeaning" and ruin "self esteem," consider that taking someone else's money for doing absolutely nothing is demeaning and lowers 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, instead of rewarding them for continuing to make bad choices.
And while on Govt subsistence, you no longer can VOTE! Yes that is correct.
It would be a conflict of interest. You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Govt welfare check. If you want to vote then get a job.
