How about this idea?

There is so much pain in the country many homeless, jobless, hungry, and millions without access to health care. The rich get richer, and the poor get poorer. So, how about this? Why don't they make it to where the government can provide everyone with a nice house (not too fancy, but not a roach motel, either! lol) that's big enough for each family, food, clothing, medical care, education (including college!), and all of the necessities. In exchange, everyone works for the government in a job that matches their skills and talents. That way, the manpower to provide these services will be built-in, and that will make the whole idea cost-effective. Voila!!-a solution to almost every problem we face as a nation! Write your lawmaker and the President--maybe we can make it happen! And if you don't like the idea, you're not a very nice person! ;)

  • I recognize sarcasm when I see it! LOL

    Hey, but there are MANY people on here who feel exactly that way! They feel the government should keep expanding and providing benefits until we are all equal.

    Of course, if you know there in no way to get ahead, there is no reason to work hard. Heck, there is no reason to work at all, since the government's job it to provide for everyone.

    Anyone else love Atlas Shrugged?

  • Are you being sarcastic? I have to ask because we live in a country that has many freedoms and one that gives everyone the ability to work hard, get an education, and get a decent job. I don't want to be told what job to have, where to live, etc.

    If you want a house and these things-work for them. That is how people get them-rich people work hard for their money. People who are successful work hard for it.

    The American dream is one built on hard work, blood, and sweat. To just give it away to anyone would be an insult to all those that died to make this country free. Your idea, to me, would be taking away all those freedoms that people fight and die for to this day.

    Just my opinion.

  • Are you serious? What happened to working hard and earning what you have? Who would pay for all that? I am practically speechless after reading that. I am going to have to agree with the other posters above me.

  • Yeah that would never work. Nice thought though?

    Answer by MommyKKay at 11:49 AM on Aug. 19, 2009

  • Many people have NO talent.

    What will we do with them?

    There must be SOME reason why they aren't contributing and cannot earn their keep.

    Not every problem is fixable.

    People become even more unmotivated in life when they are handed everything.............
