40 Acres and a Mule

Louie Gohmert (Z - Mars) is at it again. Taking a cue from 1865, Gohmert, a congressman from the Confederacy, has revived 40 acres and a mule from the Reconstruction Era. Notice how conservatives always want to regress? Usually, conservatives pine for 1950 or 1865, a time when America was a wholesome place.

"How 'bout if instead of the welfare, we give 'em an alternative. We'll give you so many acres that can provide land where you can live off of it, make a living and we'll give you seed money to start, but you have to sign an agreement that you'll never accept welfare again. How 'bout that? We got plenty of land."

I was joking about (Z - Mars). Gohmert is a Republican from Texas, which explains everything.
