    Sent to me by a trapshooting friend. Thought I'd share it with you.

    A Texan's Answer 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.

    The plain simple truth is that our welfare system is modern legalized slavery.

    Massah Democrat keeps the serfs in fear of starvation and provides them with just enough money so they can produce the only thing Massah Democrat wants - their vote.

    One day society will look back on this system and will wonder how an entire class of people could be demeaned in this way.

    Remember all the crap that was aimed at President Reagan for his suggesting that we set up a "work fare" program to replace welfare money? I didn 't think it was a bad idea then, It will work now. I already worked during the drepression, the WPA and the CCC programs kept people eating, while keeping them working. I am not getting welfare, and never will, but things are pretty lean, about 40 men in my neighborhood could use a workfare temporary job, including me.
