    Email I received from a client....if you are offended by this then you are the issue.

    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..â€￾

    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.

    I totally agree, that section 8 money grab in Texas pissed me off, i wish I could run as fast as some of those people. I was trying to make this same point on the border fence thread, too many lazy f---ks here wanting free handouts pumping out kids like a mofo.Its all related to the reason why border crossers come this way, if we had people here willing to work instead of free money, they wouldnt cross because there would be no jobs.

    You should have seen these "Katrina" victims after the hurricane. Buying TV's and shit they didnt need with the money. FEMA fucked up by giving them money and not another means to recover.

    I would agree with everything but the last paragraph, and have said so in some previous posts. You take money from the government you have to live by rules, just as those corporation that took TARP money should have. Giving out bonuses and rewarding the CEO's for poor performance is wrong too.

    I just don't agree with taking away someone's right to vote, unless they are a felon... I don't believe that makes me part of the problem like the article says.

    Do you guys really believe that people that take free money really vote? I don't think so, could be wrong.

    Sometimes voting is choosing the less of two evils.
