I think that mandatory drug testing for anyone receiving public assistance is a wonderful idea! So is making them "work" X number of hours per week at some type of public job. The problem with the current system is that it's all just a free ride for those who wish to abuse it. It was created with good intentions but it just no longer works. If we can come up with two simple ways to improve the system why can't Washington? Oh, that's right...it's because the liberals and the bleeding hearts would raise too much of a stink about "abusing" the poor!

I don't know about the rest of you but I figure I'm always about one unemployed month away from being one of those "poor" myself. (I think a lot of folks are even if we don't like to think about it.) If the worst happened and I had to fall back on the government to eat or keep a roof over my head you better believe that I'd think that picking up trash off the roadside a couple of days a week or something was a small price to pay. A helping hand should be just that a helping hand, NOT a free ride for life!

Yes, drug related crime would no doubt rise but if we didn't have to spend untold millions on welfare abusers perhaps we could actually afford to increase our police force and build some more prisons so putting criminals back of the street early to ease prison overcrowding would no longer be necessary. I guess what I'm saying here is that if my tax dollars are going to go towards housing & feeding some low life I'd rather that they be in jail where at least they are not free to produce yet another generation of public leeches!

Yes, those who fail the mandatory drug test should have their children taken from them. Could a government run orphanage really do a worse job of raising them than their drug abusing parents are doing?

This seems to me, to be a no brainer. A little common sense goes a long way. Too bad our government just doesn't have any!

There is NO PROFIT in the Cure Or Answers.

In there lies the problem.

There are working "Joe's" that could run this place better than the thieves in there now.

See When George & Tommy & Ben ,helped start our great country .

THEY HAD JOBS!

They did not just push a pencil around in Washington.


A good hard days work would kill off most politicians, I have no doubt.

Put the Prisoners & Politicians out on chain gangs & the others ,
Donate their organs to people who will put them to good use.

Why do we need to spend Billions on a space program when people are starving on this planet?

Don't get me wrong, I love astronomy but too many rockets & not enuf people leading healthy lifestyles because of lack of Fund-age.

All this is nothing more than a day dream, because unless the 99% stand up & gripe the 1% will never let go of what they got.

because most of the 99% need to be told what to do because they lack ambition & Motivation .

Not everyone can be the boss

So there ya go full circle

What a waste of time

The Laws are made for the criminals ...they are the ones that benefit from them .

There is no justice for the victim of a murder. But the Perp gets to sit in jail sucking up tax payers money for 20 years while they go from appeal to appeal.


The system is flawed

It past due for a major upgrade

Its to the point that the ones who pay their dues get penalized.

The ones that don't skate by with out a care.

Having to take a piss test to get a job is a great example, but what do you do refuse & spite your family?

The other side is do you want a crack head rolling behind your family sitting on top of 80,000lbs @ 70 MPH?

I think not.

so where id the middle of the road anyway?

Everyone can think what they want about truckers being 'clean' but "powdered coffee" is as real to life as lot lizards. Not all the drivers will use either one , but there are plenty who use both.
Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy when you're driving down the highway , huh?

There are never simple answers to complicated social ills
I believe you hit the nail on the head!

There is never an easy answer for anything in life! There is just life and lots of things that make us mad. I found (after a divorce you really start re-thinking life) that my purpose in life is for my children. And reality.....there is never an easy answer for anything that life puts on us. Everything can and will affect us or someone-else in a negative way.

Ratz....I'm rambling. LOL's.

That is a well articulated statement Dave.

It is true I believe that the ones that got it easy are not working hard enuf while others are forced to pick up their slack.

Like MOST People who go to a gym to work out.
they are not working hard enuf to start with .

Too many Pencil pushers & desk jockeys those people loose touch with reality & what it take to do the job.


IMHO
