Tuesday Deo Welfare should be temporary Ernest Bedsolo Welfare engulfs us like a leotard on a dancer drawing us into a multitude of argu ments which arc divisive and unhealthy for us It threatens the very foundation stones upon which this Nation was built We must guillotine this monster from a life of its own and turn again to the sources that build us up and make us proud to be Ameri can If a person will not work who is able to work and elects to starve to death it is that persons choice Welfare is the most degrading human experience in which a person could ever be caught up in To be a leech blood sucking the hard working person for money brings no pride to the person There is neither hon or or glory in welfare I have been told that young girls street wise of course repeat pregnancies and bare babys just to get increased child support for the little social misfits they birth Once bom in that loose moral environment they will perpetuate that mentality for generations They will be a drain on the nation forever I consider myself to be a Christian person with both morals and ethics I dont want to cause pain and anguish in any person except incumbent I do not condone starvation and home lessness Nor do I gloat over the person who expe riences them This state should provide aid to the less fortunate but TEMPORARY aid Enough to feed and clothe them for a very short time Not in luxury but only to sustain life Responsibility both personal and community must bo rejuvenated in this socialistic welfare soci ety Mandate the IRS who have their ever search ing greedy hands in most pockets to get into the pocket of the Speed Zippercd young men who father these bastard children and make them pay for their welfare Let them know that if they dance to the music they must pay the fiddler About eighteen years of child support out of their pocket cost of living adjusted for inflation might teach them the wages of sin are expensive Eliminate food stamps which can and are traded for cash At reduced cost of to buy things other than food Issue them a credit card Not my idea as someone floated it recently and I would credit them if I knew the The credit card would be a month to month issue up for renewal each successive month You would have to show store receipts for food to receive a new one each month There are many jobs looking for workers Sure they only pay five bucks an hour but dear friend five bucks an hour for forty hours is a week Not a lot of money for a family of surely common sense tells us that a welfare check should not be more attractive than a pay check So that we arent looked upon as being cruel we could always pay cases of dire need with a supple ment to their pay check The most important factor in a pay check is the sense of pride it engenders Look World Im working and supporting myself There is much to be said for the Ameri can work ethic that built this nation Welfare and social programs arc a cancer that cat away the building stones that made ihis Nation We were once proudly nhle to suite One Nation under God willi liberty and justice for Of course we cant use God any more as He went out of fashion with the flower children of the 60s Too bad really It was a comfort to know that someone some where looked out for all of us Are we the 20th century inheritors of this nation unworthy of our inheritance The question screams for an answer Finally in spite of the great polidcial pressures of the AARP and at sixty sev en years I fit that category the social security pay ments to persons over fifty five are going to have to be means tested An article in the Son Antonio Express News last week pointed up this as an absolute fact Some man wrote in for advice He stated I am fifty five and have over invested My wife and I have an income of some a year When I reach 621 will receive from social securi ty Obscene Social security was never intended to pay that amount Think for a moment before you let me experience a driveby shooting of the bur den we place on our sons and daughters Let us agree that a means test would be completely fair Ernest Bedsole is a retired master sergeant with the Marine Corps and is a resident of President Clintons year has been full of ups and downs ByTOMRAUM Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON Pres ident Clinton the year has been rilled with many ups and downs But the lowest

said Obviously it Analysis hasnt been a pleasant thing especial ly coming here at the holiday But Clinton denounced allegations that he used his gubernatorial security detail to help arrange extramarital affairs Theyre outrageous and theyre not he said of the accusa tions made by two of his former guards We have not done anything he said in his first public com ments on charges by two Arkansas state troopers that they helped Clinton meet women booked hotel rooms for liaisons and sneaked a woman into the governors mansion after he was elect ed president Questions about the troopers alle gations dominated three separate year endassessment interviews Clinton con ducted with reporters from news agen cies radio networks and the Arkansas media He denied that he tried to buy the silence of one trooper by offering him a job before the allegations became public The allegations on abuse of the state or the federal positions I have its not Clinton said That absolutely did not he said In his interview with AP Broadcast and other radio networks the presi dent was asked directly by Peter Maer of MutualNBC Radio So none of this ever happened I have nothing else to Clinton said Then he hesitated and groping for words added we did if the the I I the stories are just as they have been said Theyre outrageous and theyre not On another subject Clinton said the strong showing by ultranationalist Vladimir Zhirinovsky in the recent Russian elections makes his own trip to Moscow next month even more cru cial He indicated he would not meet with Zhirinovsky during the Jan 1215 summit I have no plans to do Clinton said of a possible meeting with the rightwing rival to Russian President Boris Yeltsin In the interview summing up his first 11 months in office Clinton said hed had many highs Among them he cited the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passage of his budget package and the North American Free Trade Agree ment and signing of the Middle East peace accord The low for me as president obvi ously was when the young men lost their lives in he said refer ring to the 18 Americans killed in a fire fight in Mogadishu on Oct 3 Clinton boasted that he had finished work on his budget for the next fiscal year nearly a month ahead of the usual schedule and that it would reduce the deficit to below billion Today in history By The Associated
