Guest Post: Fixing The Problem Isn't Difficult

Via Monty Pelerin's World blog,

The following was received via email. Supposedly it appeared in the Waco Tribune. We don’t know the author, but we assume those interested could look her up. Since the Constitution no longer matters, we assume we can make her President, even though she doesn’t meet the (formerly valid) age restriction.

This was written by a 21 yr 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 , Nov 18, 2011

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 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.


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.

Just flip that sign around to show the red man pointing the gun AND holding the money and you have “capitalism”. That’s the reality, I’m afraid. Capitalism is all about squeazing as much profit as possible out of the public by paying low wages and charging outrageous mark-ups. There is no upward pressure on wages at all. The lower the wages, the bigger the profits. This is why wages just keep falling for all jobs in all sectors across all economies, unless compassionate politicians put their foot down and say enough is enough – no more exploitation. The only exceptions to this rule of falling wages are big shot Executives and “Job Creators” (LOL) with obscene salaries that could pay for benefits and healthcare for hundreds of thousands of Americans.

Funny, she is STILL an incoherent statist, jealous over the theft of "our" money.

You want money to hand out to others? Then stop stealing, and get a job to support them yourself!

Too bad, as otherwise the girl's got the right idea.

SilverIsKing's picture

11 down arrows. It must be the New England pick.

BlueCollaredOne's picture

No way Baltimore is winning in Denver, especially after what happened in Baltimore when Denver came into town.  

SilverIsKing's picture

I like Baltimore plus the points.  Denver will probably win but by less than 10.

francis_sawyer's picture

Denver was up only 10-0 about a minute before halftime [in Baltimore] when Joe Flacco, going in for a TD to make it 10-7, with Baltimore getting the 2nd half kickoff, threw a 98 yard pick 6... The dynamics of the game changed mightily in that 10 seconds (as the rest of the game ended up even ~ scorewise)... Baltimore was playing WITHOUT Daniel Ellerbe, Terelle Suggs, Ray Lewis, Haloti Ngata, & pro bowler Marshall Yanda... & Bernard Pollard, Torrey Smith, & Bernard Pierce all left the game early with concussions...

Denver has won 11 straight... 2 against the 'powerhouse' (2-14 Chiefs), the mighty (4-12 Raiders), 2 vs. the craptastic (7-9 Chargers) who finally fired Norv Turner, the shitty (5-11 Browns), the (7-9 Buccaneers) who were in the process of losing their last 6 games)...

Fuck the Broncos ~ Fuck John Elway ~ & Fuck Papa John's Pizza...

A lot of shit is going to be said this week about how Baltimore can't beat Peyton Manning... What will be FORGOTTEN is that JOHN ELWAY can't beat Baltimore... That MOTHERFUCKER pulled some shit on the City of Baltimore in the draft (way back when in 1983) ~ which is WHY he ended up in Denver & which is WHY the Colts moved to Indy in the middle of the fucking night... The flip side to that coin is that 'THE DRIVE' (vs. the Cleveland Browns) was vs. the same franchise that became the Baltimore Ravens in 1996... Ozzie Newsome [GM of the Ravens & former Cleveland Brown] has a score to settle with Elway [as well as former Browns/Ravens owner Art Modell ~ who passed away the week before the beginning of the season]...

This is VOODOO bitchez... Denver can 'pack it in'...


SilverIsKing's picture

If Baltimore can put the ball in the end zone a few times, they should win.  Should be a low scoring game.  I think Denver played above their heads all season and I was suprised that they had such a good record but I hadn't realized the number of patsies they played.

The points you raised definitely make it an interesting game although I'm not sure how it translates to the players who have no empotional connection to these things.

Unless the entire city of Baltimore is rallying around these issues, I can't see how the players, most of whom were not born or in diapers when this shit went down, care enough to make it a point of contention.  They'll be fired up regardless but I don't see any revenge factors from their collective point of view.


francis_sawyer's picture

Baltimore is a 'TOP DOWN' organization... One of the best in football... Ozzie Newsome was a former Cleveland Brown [who ARE the Baltimore Ravens] 'lifer', and is probably the best GM in football... The Ravens have worn a patch on their jerseys that says 'Art' [for Art Modell]... Art Modell is one of the most significant figures in NFL history... It was art Modell who was mostly responsible for the fact that there IS 'Monday Night Football'... the first Monday Night Football game was played in Cleveland's Municipal Stadium...

This whole season, for the Ravens, has been a dedication to Art Modell... Don't think EVERYONE from the brass, to the players, to the janitors in the stadium don't know it...

Football is VOODOO... Last year, the Ravens lost to the Patriots on an inexplicable 'dropped pass' in the end zone [by Lee Evans], then a crazy missed 32-yard FG by Billy Cundiff... The Patriots had the VOODOO because they were playing for Maya Kraft (wife of owner ~ who passed away before the season started)...

You can believe this shit or not, but the 'NFL GHOSTS' favor the Ravens... That's free advice from francis_sawyer... You'll NEVER hear about that shit on ESPN... [until, of course, come the 'Superbowl' when the lazy ass jew reporters like Berman & Eisen are required to work for their pay & dig up a few human interest stories to fill some air time]...

LasVegasDave's picture

you know the Modells are Yids, right?

you fucking hypocrite

francis_sawyer's picture

Yes... Which is probably WHY they are hated so much in Cleveland...

From a Baltimore perspective... The IRSAY 'yids' (who pussyfooted out of Baltimore [to Indy] in the middle of a snowy night in Mayflower moving vans) are hated 100x more... Any other stupid shit to add?

& in any case... Thanks for your ADD... It proves a point that I always make... 'Kraft' (as mentioned before), is a yid too... They're practically ALL fucking yids... So in the end... It's all going to be yid vs. yid [just as I've been saying all along ~ &, of course, get JUNKED for]...

I think I need to buy a gun's picture

i don't disagree with the baltimore analysis, i think they've had the best  "team" for 3-4 years now except joe flacco isn't a super bowl "winning" quarterback. You need a franchise quarterback, i know chicago 85, tampa 02 and your baltimore of 00 were exceptions but really you need one,,,,,,, the whole coaching thing is overrated i mean how many people have left tom brady and had 'success".

francis_sawyer's picture

I couldn't disagree more...

Based on your analysis... The Atlanta Falcons [Ryan ~ who was drafted only a couple spots before Flacco]... The 49ers [Colin Kapernick ~ Univ of Nevada], The Seattle Seahawks [Russel Wilson ~ 6th rounder]... Have ZERO shot... Aaron Rodgers [who also fell WAY in the draft] is the ONLY HOPE...

Meanwhile... Houston [Schaub ~ UVA, late rounder] has no shot... Brady [a 6th rounder] has no shot...

But then look at all those SUPERSTAR franchise QBs of late:

- Brady Quinn (drafted by Cleveland; couldn't beat out Tebow in Denver; made it up from 3rd string to lead 2-14 Chiefs)...

- Cam Newton ~ #1 overall pick... sub .500

- Jamarcus Russell ~ #1 overall pick... OUT OF LEAGUE

- Matt Leinart ~ Heisman winner ~ 3rd stringer... somewhere... almost out of league

- Jimmy Clausen ~ #3 pick... OUT OF LEAGUE

- I'll leave alone the Nick Foles, Kevin Kolbs, Charlie Whitehursts, et al... The Ravens won the SB with Trent Dilfer... Their ONLY mistake in the past decade was to bring in a FRANCHISE QB [Elvis Grbac], to IMPROVE on that success... The Vikings made it to the playoffs this year with Christian Fucking Ponder... The Lions went 4-12 with #1 overall pick Matthew Stafford [throwing to Megatron]... NUFF SAID...

SilverIsKing's picture

Joe Flacco is really Joe Flackowitz.  He didn't want you to know that he was a YID.

francis_sawyer's picture

You want to talk about 'HYPOCRISY' [vis-a-vis ~ Las Vegas Dave]...

It is WELL KNOWN [on this site], that francis_sawyer hardly passes up an opportunity to lay the blame of the world monetary debacle [aka JOOBUX] a the feet of where it rightfully should be blamed...

At the same time... I've maintained that it's NOTHING PERSONAL... I just like the TRUTH [& it seems very difficult for most people to face the truth, which is why it's all a circle jerk & no progress will ever be made until the whole fucking house has been burned to the ground]...

Here is an instance where I give PRAISE [which, I believe is RIGHTFULLY DESERVED in this instance]... So what happens?... Some NIMROD wants to call me an idiot & a hypocrite & bring something into the argument that I had not even mentioned...

I get junked all the time for talking about JOOBUX... Here, the one time I make ZERO mention of it, somebody else wants to bring 'YIDS' into the equation (without any provocation whatsoever)... That's the state of the world folks...


It's all fucking classic... [& tells you everything you need to know]... ALL of my comments [above & below] are DETAILED summaries about 'very specific' nuances of previous game situations, psychologies, down & distances, point spreads, ownership structures, player motivations, etc... I GET JUNKED FOR THAT SHIT...

Somebody else just comes out with a blunt ass comment like... "Manning is going to skewer the Ravens & their old as shit nigger linebacker"... [Everybody is on board with that]... Now you know what it feels like when I see RED ARROWS every time the word 'JOOBUX' makes its way into a comment...

Manipuflation's picture

+1 for "joobux".  Let's make it colloquial in usage but much more rarely so perhaps.  I understand that you are simply making an observation, applying a unique terminology, and making somewhat of a statement at the same time.  I am not an anti-semite either.  I like many of your posts, I just don't do much with the arrows.  You are correct to call out the football too.  Football is not what this site is about but there are a lot of alpha males here and it IS fight club.

I think I need to buy a gun's picture

no no no your taking my postion wrong, has nothing to do with where you are drafted,,,,,,, you need an accurate 10-15 yard passer that is intelligent. Not a strong arm bomb throwing idiot. But lets face it Joe Flacco ain't going into New England (blame it on the kicker if you want) aint going into denver (manning) and winning shit. Ryan Luck will be in the playoffs for the next 10 years. Roethlisberger, Manning and Brady have rotated for the last 12 years no matter what team they are on. Next year mark sanchez aint going to the super bowl no matter what and neither is Jake Locker matt cassell or Christian Ponder. Put Ponder on the patriots and brady on the vikings and the vikings go to the super bowl this year. Never said russell wilson didn't have a chance nor drew brees has nothing to do with it.

Tony Romo, mike vick, henne, fitzpatick cutler palmer ponder guaranteed no championship ever.

Baltimores d back in 2000 was a once in a generation defense good luck building one of those again with a trent dilfer handing off to lewis and holmes again

JLee2027's picture

Denver is overrated, played a lot of weak teams. They might win, but 9 points is a joke.

francis_sawyer's picture

Given the 'home team' skew... It means that they're saying Denver would be favored by 3 points [in Baltimore]... Same shit with the Falcons~Seahawks... The implied line means that the Seahawks would be 5 point favorites if the game were in Seattle...

NotApplicable's picture

Not to mention, they're a single tackle away from their star QB sitting in a wheelchair for the rest of his stupid-ass life.

eatthebanksters's picture

Ray Lewis is back and he is not saving anything for the future...that inspires a team...I'd say Baltimore is the team to beat.

Super Mario was a great hockey player, regardless of era.

But the truly great make them change the rules. Before Rocket Richard, a penalty was 2 minutes, no matter how many goals were scored. After the Rocket, one and out.

Before Gretzky, co-incidental minors, you play five a side. After Gretzky, the players sit out, but the teams play at full strength.

Nobody ever changed the rules because of Mario; they did because of Wayne.

JLee2027's picture

Only if he has time to pass....and he won't. You have no idea what's coming. Andrew Luck was knocked around so much he lost his accuracy. Expect the same for Peyton, and Peyton can't run.

francis_sawyer's picture

Last time Manning faced the Ravens [in a divisional matchup], he couldn't get the ball into the end zone... 5 Adam Vinateiri FG's... Andrew Luck couldn't get the ball into the end zone [3 Adam Vinateiri FG's]... In the game vs. Manning... Vinateiri had one 50+ FG as time expired (at halftime) that bounced off the crossbar & went thru... Late in the game, the Ravens had the Colts pinned back inside their own 5 & got a ticky-tack personal foul call that allowed the Colts to convert a 3rd & long...

Neither Luck nor, Manning has scored an offensive TD vs. the Ravens in those two [playoff] games... Manning threw for only 204 yds & 1 TD against the depleted Ravens in the regular season (where half their defensive starters were out)...

It was also the FIRST WEEK (offensively ~ after 4 days) that the Ravens had fired their offensive coordinator, Cam Cameron... Jim Caldwell (Peyton Manning's ex-QB coach is now the OC for the Ravens)...

Fuck the Broncos...

Well said, N/A. Why is government necessary to dictate market outcomes? Sound money, based on property rights, stops this in a heart beat. No taxation on labor is one of the clauses in the Constitution. No expropriation Bills are legal that are used to "save" a recipient from their economic plight. That's where the illegal theft occurs and that is where BIG govt establishes its credentials. I'm no Rhodes scholar on the constitution but your down arrows suggest that there are so many who don't even know it exists.

Fixing The Problem IS Difficult. The author is unaware that her propositions are not addressing the issues from a Constitutional perspective. Most Americans are unaware that the Constitution contains all the answers to their "fairness" points of contention, such as these in the article. They are common sense clauses that were designed to address the issues of fairness that this woman complains about.

I'm taking ILLINOIS CHI -2 and the hook on the road v CLEVELAND ST.  Vegas pinkies bitchez.  EVerything gets priced-in to the big-caps. 

Those interested should look at WorldSportsExchange

You can LIVE BET games as they unfold as shares of stock.  Buy and sell at any time.  Unlimited trades.  All major sports, incl golf.  

Buy 3 shares of the Ravens at $30 at the start of the drive, sell at $65 right before they MISS the field goal, for instance.  Then buy Denver cuz Manning should be good for a few first downs... etc...

Pretty bad ass.  You can actually trade MOMENTUM, instead of getting stuck in a bet you can't get out of... like 3 minutes into the 1st qtr when its already OBVIOUS your team's about to get rolled.

I'm not pimping anything.  Just FYI for those looking for different action in a better casino.

Flame away, bitchez.  I trust in my own ability to discern.


koncaswatch's picture

do you know if any algos trade there?

tickhound's picture

Frontrunning I'm sure but it shouldn't matter and one could argue that it actually helps.   

On any nationally televised game, watch the lines move on every stoppage in play/possession/shot or whatever.  The balance HAS to be on the other side as both shares MUST equal 100.  100 can only occur at the end of the game. 

Shaking someone out of a position is near impossible to do artificially.  It could be the closest thing to a free-market with non-ponzi juice left in the world.

IE An immediate dump of a $50 share would sell for $45.

sounds like a refreshing change from "trading" NYSE, etc. Thnx, could be fun!

MDB makes a good point every once in a while. If you trim out 50% of his bullshit, all of which is funny btw, and had someone from the red team meet him in the middle, you'd almost get a reasonable thought.
