Subject: Written by a 21 year old female

"The problems we face today are
there because the people who work
for a living are outnumbered by those
Who vote for a living"

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 Nov 18, 2010

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.

Interesting. I can agree with some of it. It will never happen though.

I can dig it.

It is not humiliating to provide for yourself.  It should be if you choose not to.

That's how it WAS when I was 21yo. I either worked or starved (or begged off my family).

Quoting Anonymous:

Yeah. The voice of youthful stupidity. Good thing not every 21 year old thinks like this.

Why do you feel the need to be the 'messenger'?
