21 Year Old Wisdom

My buddy in Michigan sent me this in an email two days ago and I was and still am amazed at the level of clarity this young woman understands how badly damaged our system is in the United States. Too young for the office of the president? Technically, yes, but who gives a crap, put her in the office!


Wow, this girl has a great plan!  Love the last thing she would do the best.  This was written by a 21-year-old female who gets it.  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 was in the Waco Tribune-Herald, Waco, TX.


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.

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 your “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.

I love this one…

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 government welfare check.  If you want to vote, then get a job.

Now, if you have the guts – pass it on! Isn’t it weird that in AMERICA our flag and our culture offend so many people.. but our benefits don’t?  They’re “expected” because this is AMERICA, RIGHT?

    • Hi Anneli, I agree. Driving around Vegas, I have seen countless young men holding signs stating they are homeless and need money. Really? LV Metro has told me to not give these people money, ever. They are able-bodied young men by appearance, they have no excuse.

  1. I’m on the fence. It sounds simple enough but generally when younger people that I know make these kinds of declarations they come from homes where they have been handed every opportunity and never come up against any real adversity in life. There are a lot of people here who have never had a hand up – just handouts that are barely enough to exist on, not expand on. Plus a lot of people are caught up in our opioid crisis – injured workers or athletes who have been hooked on that poison by their family doctor and then kicked to the curb with no treatment or plan in place.

    • The young lady could also have been raised by proper Conservative parents like myself and have an understanding beyond her years. Opioid addiction is a problem down here too, Annmarie, the whole thing is sickening. It seems no matter how hard people try in any country, the world continues on a downward spiral.

  2. wow, we could do with some of that over here on this side of the pond. We also have far too many scroungers and dead beats doing nothing all day and getting paid by the state to do so. They even get free food and 100% free health care ( something that tax payers don’t get ). Send her over here. We could do with a new leader.

    • That’s sad to learn, Ian. Your NHS health care is paid for by taxes, right? Yet the deadbeats get it for nothing? That’s so disgusting!

      • It is paid for through taxes but if you work you have to pay for all medication ( including life saving drugs ), dental and minor surgery. If you don’t work you get it all for free !! How is that fair ?

        • It’s not fair in any way, shape or form! Who came up with that ridiculous idea? I have to have medical insurance paid for monthly. Waaay too expensive! Insurance helps with the cost of medications and my recent procedures on my heart and one other. Which system is better?
