Put Me in Charge

Forwarded to me, author unknown, but obviously a Visionary:

Put me in charge of food stamps.
I'd get rid of food stamp cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Hos; 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, 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. (Or Vasectomies for men!)
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, 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, 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 Government 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 Government welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job.

Recall This?

Remember those recall elections on August 9th in six Wisconsin districts, where six Republican state senators (nearly a third) were basically targeted by labor unions and the Left spent a reported $30 million?

Voter Turnout was high: 63%

Four of the six Republican senators held onto their seats, and the Republicans retained the majority in the state senate.

Before the election: the Mainstream Media was all over the story.

After the election: the air time spent: CBS- 1 minute 55 seconds; NBC-  45 seconds; and ABC- 0 time.

Is this the new American way?
