Frank J. 2016: Starving

Posted on November 15, 2012 3:00 pm

I was thinking, do we have a point at which we will just let someone starve? Like we have all these welfare programs and foodstamps, but are we willing at any point finally tell someone: “That’s it; you’re a lazy bastard. Work or starve!”? As president, I will be willing to say that. In fact, I’ll say it a lot; like all the time. Your personal welfare is not the concern of the federal government. So be a man. Or a woman. Anyway, just pick one of those and be that and take care of yourself. The federal government is not there to coddle you and take care of your everyday needs. It’s not a charity. It’s a terrible thing that is in a constant state of preperation to nuke foreigners.

Frank J. 2016: If you want the government to personally care for you, be a nuclear weapon.

    Do not resuscitate, no intravenous feeding – its just that you aren’t in a hospital.

    There’s the government letting someone starve and then there’s private citizens letting someone starve. Too many people think they’re the same thing.

    Dear Great Frank J.,

    As you are going to run for President, you will need to name people to various cabinet positions. I suggest myself for treasury secretary.

    My Qualifications:

    I can add and subtract
    I know that deficits = bad, surpluses = good
    I know that debt = bad, no debt = good
    I will propose that anyone who suggests an income tax be declared a traitor and executed on the spot
    I have paid my taxes (unlike a current Treasury Secretary that I could mention)
    I have a business degree
    I have same first name as the current TS so we’d save money changing only the last names on the TS’s cards and office door

    My only condition is that I may be allowed to execute any traitors who propose any income taxes.

    I have two more moderate budget proposals: http://spootville.blogspot.com/2012/11/frank-j-for-president.html

    One highlight of a moderate budget is that we eliminate all welfare spending and give each person in poverty a check for $30,000. We can do that and still balance the budget.

    (If cooperation from democrats is unnecessary, then disregard all moderate spending plans.)

    I hope that you’ll name me Treasury Secretary as I, unlike the person who currently holds the position, can add, subtract, and have paid my taxes.

    Sincerely,

    Tim

    P.S. A quote from President Cleveland:

    I can find no warrant for such an appropriation in the Constitution, and I do not believe that the power and duty of the General Government ought to be extended to the relief of individual suffering which is in no manner properly related to the public service or benefit. A prevalent tendency to disregard the limited mission of this power and duty should, I think, be steadfastly resisted, to the end that the lesson should be constantly enforced that though the people support the Government the Government should not support the people.

    Stop it! You’re making me chuckle and I’m trying to work here.

    Tim, you are certainly etter prepared that the current office holder.

  6. JoeHill says:

    All welfare is corporate welfare.

    The US is subsidizing low wages. SNAP and TANF are just transfer payments to WalMart and Dollar General

  7. CTCompromise says:

    The first reform needed is a time limit on welfare and food stamps, just like unemployment benefits….Say, 1 year and then no more welfare check, no more food stamps. AT the very least, let’s start to limit it to 1 generation of welfare and food stamps per family.

    Can I be vice-President? I have plenty of experience with vice.

    Let them eat Twinkies.

  10. Weisshaupt says:

    I have no problem letting them starve when the time comes. Ask for charity I might help you, but if, at any time, you have held a gun to my head and ordered that I take care of you, then you can die in the street as the thief you are. No honest man can consume more than they produce, and if you do, the LEAST you can do is be grateful to those who made it possible, instead of treating them as your slaves, and feeling entitled to the fruits of their labor.
