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.

GREAT: The best I have heard it put.
In alabama between 50 and 60% of the people are on food stamps. The first of the month one can't get in the store. the bugges are backed up at the check out full of pork chops and t bones. And loard at the chips and junk food. And being pushed by 400 pound women. Quit eating and get a job.
The state should only pay for rice and beans. If one wants to eat high on the hog GET A JOB.
Then they go out in the parking lot amnd load both buggies into thier esclade and drive off.
I get my can of chunke soup and crackers and drive off in my 1990 S-15 with the windows down and no AC. But by god I worked for it.

nr, you're back!!!
We've missed you!!!
I've been trying to finish the book finally!
Had to practically drop everything else. (I've missed RanchersNet and you guys!)

I was on tonight trying to find something about horses and got pulled into reading postings (for about an hour!) You know how that goes...very addictive :p Some things never change!

What's happening out there???? Besides heat.

What did you want to know about horses?

Haying is pretty much the ranching buzzword now...trying to
get done, or in gcreeks case, trying to get started!!!

You wrote a book, right? Tell us about it.
Maybe we should start a new thread. I feel bad
about hijacking this one.

I'll go start a new one.

Don't worry about your spelling nr, the way I feel today it fits quite well. :wink:


I wonder why the Japanese manufacturers of equipment don't make a man size cab. :?
