Put Me In Charge. New Guest Blog.


Time for some FUN!  I asked for guest bloggers.  Here is one that I got.  A little carried away….??

Put me in charge . . .  By Guest Blogger X.

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.”

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.

  1. Pleeaasse… When you lose your 80k a year job and your house in the next ” recession”, please revisit your guest blog… There are people who have worked and been successful all their lives that fall into a slump. They pay into these systems and deserve every penny they get out of it. I will assume you are addressing those who abuse it. And why wouldn’t anyone get the right to vote? If that’s your idea of fair, then the unemployed shouldn’t get those rights either. Wow, you sound like you’re from the mountain.

    • Mary, your comments are well taken. I will presume your comments are directed at the guest blogger, not me, since these are not my opinions, and I did not say I agreed with them. They were submitted by an anonymous guest blogger but I felt they do demonstrate what some on the ultra right might think.

      You want to post a blog? Please submit it. If I think it’s either funny or topical, I’ll publish it. I didn’t decide to publish this one because either you, me, or anyone else might agree with it.

      And I don’t have an $80k per year job. I’m retired and live on much less.

  2. Howard I vote to put you in charge with this plan in mind!!!! Think I have heard this before! At least you could be trusted to carry out your plan, politicians can’t not be trusted .

  3. There is something to being drug tested to get benefits. Just because good people fall on hard times, they still need to lay off the drugs.

    That to me defines the losers in the system.

  4. Hateful drivel.
