Tea-Partiers -Really Want Less Government?

This entry is directed SPECIFICALLY to all the Republicans and Tea-Partiers who are crying for less government.

Their argument is childish and their thinking is flawed. 
They and their family would be hurt by this as much as anyone else. 
They don’t think – they just open their mouths and go yada, yada, yada, yada, blah, blah, blah!

Republicans and Tea-Partiers who are crying for less government like to spout off about the elimination of  “entitlements’ and yet – I’m sure they or a members of their family have all used at least one “entitlement program” and/or are benefiting from the government entitlements that they have received.

Well folks – you hate them so much? 
Then quit using them!
Quit using Tea Party entitlements!
And pay back the government for the “entitlements” that you have received or are currently receiving.  Get off the public dole.

If you don’t do this – you are hypocrites!  Plain and simple – hypocrites.


Everything listed below is funded by a government program or legislation – some also referred to by the “wing-nuts” as a government entitlement programs.

If any of the following apply or applied to you, please take the appropriate action listed.

EDUCATION
  • If you received a Pell Grant to go to school – sit down and write a check to pay back the government for that part of your education.
  • If you used the GI Bill to go to school – sit down and write a check to pay back the government for your education.
  • If your kids are going to public school– either pay the school district for their education or pull them out and home school them.  If you choose to home school them don’t you dare ask for any kind of assistance in doing so.  Do not ask for vouchers to put your kid into some private school.
  • If your kids are going to public university – pull them our right now and enroll them in a private college – but don’t you dare ask for any federal or state funds to pay for their education. 
  • If your kids participated in Head Start - sit down and write a check to the government to reimburse the government for that expense.  If your kids are in Head Start – pull them our right now!

INCOME ASSISTANCE
  • If you are currently receiving unemployment benefits – STOP right now!
  • If you are drawing SSI disability payments – STOP right now and earn your own way.
  • If you, your parents or grandparents are receiving Social Security – tell them to STOP accepting the Social Security checks right now and go out and get a job. (Another idea is that your parents or grandparents can move into your house and you can support them.)
  • If you, your parents or grandparents are enrolled in Medicare – tell them to STOP accepting the payments right now and you can pay all their medical bills.
  • If you or your kids are on Medicaid – STOP using it right now and pay for medical out of your own pocket.
  • If you are on food stamps – quit using them and pay for your food yourself!
  • If you are on the WIC program – quit using it and pay for all that stuff yourself.
  • If you’re kid is eating a school lunch – STOP that right now – start packing their lunch for them.  If you are getting subsidized lunches – shame on you, pay for it yourself or let your kids go without food.
  • If you are receiving disability payments form the VA – STOP! And don’t you dare ask for another penny of money for your service to the American people – from any government agency.

AT WORK (Tell your boss you don’t need or want any protection under labor and wage laws – that would include some of the following.)
  • Tell your boss you will work as many hours as needed without overtime.
  • Tell your boss that safety is not an issue and you will do whatever needs to be done.
  • Tell your boss you will work for whatever wage they want to pay you, even if it’s 30 cents an hour.
  • Tell your boss that your kids will come in and work for them for (let’s say) 15 cents and hour and will work as many hours as your boss want them to.
  • If you are getting special accommodations for your disability tell your boss that’s not needed and you can do without the special accommodations.
  • If you are a woman tell your boss you don’t expect equal pay – you will work for whatever salary they choose.
  • If you are expecting a child – do not use the family and medical leave – we expect you to report back to work the day after you give birth.
  • Your boss wants sex in exchange for a raise or a couple of hours off - you tell 'em sweell, go right ahead.

MISCELLANEOUS
  • If any of your have received emergency loans from FEMA for disasters – pay that money back and don’t you dare ask for anymore assistance in the future.
  • Don’t you dare ask for help from agencies like the FHA, HUD, FEMA, the VA, the SSA, or OSHA.
  • If you belong to a union – write a check and reimburse the government for all the benefits you are enjoying.  The Federal government protects your right to organize and you don’t deserve that right.  And by the way – tell your employer they can get rid of vacations, health insurance, sick pay and other benefits your union got for you.
  • Tell your bank you don’t want or need any FDIC insurance on your accounts.  If you lose all your money because the banks crash – that’s okay with you.
  • Write to your congress person or senator and tell them we don’t need the SEC – we can trust wall street to do the right thing.
  • Write to your congress person or senator and tell them we don’t need the Army, The Navy, The Coast Guards, the Marines, fire departments, police departments, the highway patrol – all government funded programs.
  • If you don’t like women to “have a choice” than you better go out and adopt every single child in foster care  and take care of them – on your own dime..  You don’t like it – be part of the solution.
  • If you are currently taking care of foster children – pay for it yourself and don’t’ ask for any financial assistance.
  • If you have received ANY type of tax credit (and that includes you folks in the wealthiest 2%) – PAY IT BACK NOW.
  • Turn off your damn TV and radio (FCC) – you’d probably be smarter if you didn’t listen to them.

This entry is directed SPECIFICALLY to all the Republicans and Tea-Partiers who are crying for less government.

If what I have written upsets you – then YOU SHOULDN'T BE SUPPORTING the policies of the Tea Party or the Republicans. 

This is their agenda, this is our future!  Stop – Think!   You do know how to think and reason – don’t you?  (Maybe not……..)

“We naturally associate democracy,
to be sure, with freedom of action,
but freedom of action without freed capacity of thought behind it is only chaos” 
John Dewey
