Time to make the people receiving a free check do something other than watching tv and doing dope. They should do something for their free check. Most are capable of working but don't want to because they are lazy. Get a job.

I don't think you will get much disagreement on that, but with 47 percent of Americans receiving Government handouts , don't expect the situation to change anytime soon. They would sooner stay LAZY.

now that the govener has revoked the 200 dollars a month that those on welfare were getting watch the crimes of shoplifting and things of that nature start to rise. That means the goveners efferts to curb the prison population will go for not!

The best thing that could happen to this public assistance is to let the government go over the so called Fiscal cliff. They keep trying to scare people by saying that taxes will go up, but they don't mention that 47% of Americans don't pay taxes.

You are absolutely correct, 0x0=ZERO, it should also mean that when it is time for tax refunds, If you didn't pay any tax, you don't get any back either, and you never get more back than you pay in.

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 ligation's. Then, we'll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you want to reproduce or 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.
You got my vote
