My friend Wally K sent this to me. I have read this before as news like this gets distributed within Texas. For those in other states the Lone Star Card is the food stamp program in Texas. It disturbs me, as I have previously written, watching the abuse of the food stamp program is totally out of reason and control. If this program alone had been initiated in 1932 when all hell broke loose and the banks failed, there would be no United States today and those still alive today would be speaking Japanese. We would have gone broke before 12-7-1941 and could not have funded the war. Guess what ,we are approaching the same fate now and not enough care as our government has gone mad slashing our defense spending so people can sit on their butts and do nothing.
Sadly, we just keep piling up debt with no concern or action to eliminate fraud and waste, because the politicians, 100% of them are afraid that they can’t get re-elected and worse, they are right. People vote for the person who can deliver the free anything. I hope all young people who keep electing these Progressive-Liberals wake up and understand who will have to pay for this waste someday. They have a choice to decide if they want to learn to speak Spanish, Arabic, Chinese or English. My money is on Spanish if the Hispanic leaders can get their act together before China owns the entire country. I was told they bought Smithfield meats today. It appears they own Congress. C Brewer

WRITTEN BY a 21 YEAR OLD FEMALE Wow, this girl has a great plan! Love the last thing she would do…. the best.
This was written by a 21-year-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.

PUT ME IN CHARGE . . .
Put me in charge of food stamps. I’d get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dong’s 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. Then, we’ll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you want to use drugs, alcohol, or smoke, 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.
