Why not make all welfare recipients work at the post office as postal workers retire? Hire a private company to police them and let them work for the benefits if they can't find work after 1 year on welfare.

I woke up in a mood, can't you tell.

The postal union doesn't want em, the union members delivering the mail today would look bad by comparison.

most women on welfare are home with kids . What would they do with those kids
While at work at the P o ?
Don't get me wrong . Welfare is definitely broken and all manner of rules should be in place,that are not,.like mandatory drug and alcohol testing to qualify.

08,

I'm with you -- I never understood why we have to pay a cent to build roads or anything else. I would have every soul on welfare out there earning that money -- I'd work them until they were begging for a regular job. Problem solved.

Sort of goes against the whole repression philosophy that our government really wants to see prevail -- so it won't happen.

Keep the masses fat, stupid, and happy -- keep watching the NFL and Dancing with the stars. LOL.

I am all for putting them to work also, even if it is digging a hole one day and filling it up the next day. Just like the WPA back in the 30s. At least the people getting assistance felt like they earned it. But back then these folks had dignity and would not have it any other way. Times have changed, unfortunately.

Uh, 'cause we'd never get our mail again?

The proportion of unskilled labor in road and utility work is relatively small. The skilled people wouldn't put up with them. Would you want to supervise someone who didn't want to work?

Besides, the welfare slugs would see to it that they hurt their backs almost immediately. Then, compensation would set in, and they'd be disabled and on welfare.

I suggest that we don't give money. Give them food directly.

Food infused with a slow poison that takes about 6 months to kill you. Let them know it's in there.

Too many of them would steal the checks being sent through the mail.

Not bad, IMO here's a better idea.

Close USPS, sell off assets, put all postal workers on welfare.

In the long run, considering BS benefits, wasted time on the job,
and overpaid top heavy management, Taxpayers would save money.

Funny but pretty stupid. When was the last time taxpayers funded the post office??? Do your research before you answer.

I'm all for it, make them work for what they get.

Only problem is, it would be like the Chain Gang. See Below:

Civil-rights activists question whether shackled-together inmates on roadsides deter crime.

We can not just turn off welfare. We have now created a beast that we must feed to keep it quiet. The majority (not all) are unemployable. You do not want them in your town, post office, supermarket,.......

There is nothing that you can do to stop it. They have tasted the golden tit and will not give it up. Crime will go through the roof and the street will run red. Sounds melodramatic but if you ever meet some of these people you will understand.

So what you are saying is we should just give up, sounds like a plan to me. It may take more then my lifetime but at some point things will change just as it did to get this way.

People forget that we have the power, we just need to be mad and united enough to do something with it.
