PUT ME IN CHARGE OF WELFARE
This came into my mailbox today, purportedly written by a 21-year-old girl. But ya know, I really don’t care if it was written by a 21-year-old girl, or a 91-year-old man, it still rings true in my book. I’ve gone through the Bible and picked out a few verses that speak to each point. I’m sure there are many more. Feel free to comment and add any verses you feel appropriate and list which item (number) it goes with. Also, if you agree with this, share it on FB for your friends.
1. 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. …
(1Cor 3:8 [KJV])
Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
2. 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. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, or smoke, then get a job.
(Prov 14:1 [KJV])
Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.
3. 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.
(Eccl 10:18 [KJV])
By much slothfulness the building decayeth; and through idleness of the hands the house droppeth through.
4. 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..”
(Gal 6:5 [KJV])
For every man shall bear his own burden.
(Prov 6:6 [KJV])
Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:
(Prov 10:4 [KJV])
He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.
(Prov 20:4 [KJV])
The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.
(2Thess 3:10 [KJV])
For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.
5. 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.
6. 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.
7. 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.
