COMMON SENSE SOLUTIONS!
The young lady who asked to be put in charge is describing how problems must be solved in any business. If you can’t produce dividends to shareholders who invested real money in a company it is bankrupt or worthless. That is called profit. When I was young the government did not give people money to sit on their butt and do nothing and if you were capable you worked for your subsistence. The entire National Park system was built by people who were unemployed, it was called a depression. They built roads and other infrastructure deemed needed by a government that thank God actually worked together to feed everyone.
This common sense method was how America was capable of producing everything required to win World War 11. This was America at its finest point and since we have watched our government systematically fall totally on its rear racing to become a socialistic democracy. If we were to be attacked tomorrow it would be nothing but chaos in Washington. Watching the 3 million consultants and lobbyist race to beat the bloated government employees away from any enemy target area. Congresspersons would have already left because they did not let the media warn the bloodsuckers and bureaucrats. I want to thank my good friend, Allan Moore for sending the following letter that was written by a smart young lady whose name was not revealed.
WRITTEN BY A 21 YEAR OLD FEMALE.
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 girl has a great plan! I love the last thing she would do the best.

PUT ME IN CHARGE…
Put me in charge of food stamps. 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. 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.
Put me in charge of checking pay stubs. 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 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. Now, if you have the guts – share this. ANON
A Donald Trump is educated, trained, and has more experience in creating jobs than the entire Congress and every bureaucrat in our government. He has experienced failure and every failure has made him wiser.
Our government is so bloated with duplications, union rules, and waste it will take a while to “drain the swamp” as my Coonass friends across the lake would say. Our government today operates on an old adage “IF YOU CAN’T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER, YOU’VE GOT AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM” The young lady’s letter reminds me of many situations I experienced during my last eleven years as a consultant. I worked in 32 countries and 49 states.
I dearly hope everyone that reads this will pass it on to everyone you know. Far too many Americans and probably many thousands of government employees have been on welfare all of their work life. I beg you to elect Trump and watch the fat trimming begin immediately.
If I were elected the first thing I would do is demand term limits for all elected and appointed friends including Federal Judges and the Supreme Court. Wallowing in the government sty has politicized every decision made in the Washington swamp. No wonder we are nearly nineteen trillion dollars in debt. Even at my soon to be 86 years old I would love to be turned loose in any part of the government looking for duplicity and waste. I would want no salary, just 10% of what could be saved with a common sense business mind.
You might want to study a bit more about how Internet memes work, Clyde. You’re never too old to learn. Your common sense story wasn’t written by a 21 year-old, and it’s been circulating, with slight variations in phrasing, for almost six years. It was originally a letter to the editor in the Waco Tribune Herald by a 56-year-old man named Alfred W. Evans from Gatesville that was printed on Nov. 18, 2010.
