Hello.. I am new here and not quite sure what I am doing yet, so please bear with me! I totally agree that things are getting horrible, and
have a couple of ideas on how SOME things could be "fixed"... FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
1: Cut out all food stamp programs for the summer months and supply vegetable seeds and an empty lot to grow them. Pre packaged meat portions, milk,
and rice and beans available at food banks. Have a place where people can dehydrate or learn how to do canning for the winter month storage. Make
people accountable. If they can work and choose not to, they don’t get any benefits at all including food bank. If they still want services from
the food bank, they can volunteer 40 hours a week and receive their portion until they get a job.
2: Cut out interpreters. People in the US can speak English. If they cannot, I’m sure they have their own interpreter.
3: Cut out medical aide that covers emergency room visits unless it is truly an emergency. No more taking a child to the hospital for treatment of
the common cold because they are too lazy to make a doctors appt during normal business hours.
4: Cut the ridiculous government spending on non essential items. I mean seriously, why are some of these even there in the first place? If you want
to go out on a limb like the government has been, legalize drugs and use the revenue that is going to street gangs and violence right now.
5: Make people accountable for their actions. If someone is caught stealing, cut off their hand, hang them, or equivalent. They would not do it
again. This worked in the Old West, didn’t it?
6: The “feel sorry tax, guilt tax” has got to go. Quit enabling and making excuses. Do what you need to do to survive and take care of your own
family, as long as it is legal and moral. Don’t worry so much about the other guy, they have their own problems.
7: Families need to take care of their elders. Government run nursing homes are a waste of money. Unless the person is in real need of medical care,
they should remain at home and be taken care of by a family member.
8: Make it easier, a portion of what any home- owner grows for food to the food banks. If they cannot supply, they can’t own. This goes for every
person, not rich, not poor, but all. This would eliminate the food stamp program. Cut out the EPA. They have too much control already, as does the
FDA. Most people cannot purchase the chemicals that cause enough harm to matter, and people need to learn how to respect the land again and become
9: Control your children and teach them right from wrong, and teach them work ethics. This includes actually going to school AND learning at home.
Don’t blame teachers for your child’s lack of ethics, it is YOUR ultimate responsibility. This goes for ALL races.
10: Live a little bit more simply. Do you really need a $500K home? A $60K car? Just because it looks good doesn’t mean it is essential. Walk
more, ride a bike. Quit eating out so much and prepare your meals at home.
These are just my views, and I don't expect everyone to agree with them
