We have to go one step at a time to prevent chaos, our nation can't even keep the government open, so we gotta go slow.
Make sure that the debit card that is now given to welfare recipients cannot have ANY cash withdrawn. You say that is silly? No one needs cash nowadays. If they want a snack, use the food stamp card. If they want a drink from a vending machine, sorry, you should have gotten some at the store with the food stamp card. Also, if it is a government issued card, no addictive products can be purchased with it. No cigarettes, no chewing tobacco, no caffeine drinks, no alcohol, etc. You say, why not caffeinated drinks? Because if they are disabled so bad they cannot work, then they are in bad enough health and we need to help them "purify" their entire system. NOTHING ADDICTIVE. You say that is ridiculous, HEY, it is MY MONEY supporting them, so I call the shots.
They cannot purchase any jewelry or unnecessary accessories, proper clothing ONLY. No nails being done, no tattoos, no music, no movies, only a limited package on Directv, Dish, Cable, etc. No computers, limited cell service. They have no job, call from home.
Car insurance, light bill, automatically come out FIRST.
No cash, no drugs. solve that problem real fast. No drug dealer would trade drugs for a pair of jeans that HAD to be bought at Wal-Mart...get the idea???
I could go on, but I think you get the point. It can be done. And done correctly, and responsibly. We just have to vote in someone that will do it.
