Recipes For Success And Disaster

If I knew who sent me the best suggestion I have come across in a long time, I would credit him. Instead, I will simply share his brilliant notion that we put our senior citizens in jail and stick all the criminals in nursing homes. As he pointed out, seniors would have access to showers…

Coming Soon To a Country Near You…

coming-soon

Lisa and Carrie-Ann Beaney currently live in a taxpayer-paid “single B&B room” in England with their four children and claim they are too stressed to work because of homophobic bullying. Lisa, 30, quit her job at McDonald’s after just three months and Carrie-Ann 23 has never worked at all.  Outrageous. They each had one child before becoming…

Drug Free for Free Money – Revisited

welfare-drug-testing

Almost two years ago, I wrote an article, “Drug Free for Free Money,” in which I applauded Florida Governor Rick Scott for requiring adults applying for welfare assistance to undergo drug screening.  I thought it was a great idea and still do. But, then, I don’t wear a black muu muu.  Immediately after the law…

No Thanks to the Government

Very recently, the President said the following:  “If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help.  There was a great teacher somewhere in your life.  Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive.  Somebody invested in roads and bridges.  If you’ve got a business,…

The Nanny States of America

Minnesota, like so many states, is facing a harsh reality.  On July 1st, the government shut down and each side began blaming the other for failing to pass a budget that would solve the $5 billion deficit. What caught my attention was the story of Sonya Mills, a 39-year-old mother of eight children – six of…

“Money for Nothing and Your ‘Chits’ For Free”

money

I know I’m beating a dead horse here, but I just can’t help myself. I run a law office which operates in Washington and California.  I keep calendars, meet deadlines, know in which court my husband is expected to be, and do tons of paperwork.  When I order supplies, I know exactly what I’m buying and know…

Drug Free for Free Money

drug-free-for-free-money

Anyone who’s ever read my posts knows how much I hate government waste.  The only thing I hate more than the government hemorrhaging money is the lack of oversight and accountability to the taxpayers. I work for my husband so I don’t have to drug test.  But think of how many millions of workers have…
