Urine Test!
 
I DO HAVE TO PASS A URINE TEST FOR MY JOB..... I AGREE 100%

Like a lot of folks in this state, I have a job. I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit. In order to get that paycheck, I am required to pass a random urine test with which I have no problem. What I Do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who DON'T have to pass a urine test. Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check because I have to pass one to earn it for them?
Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet. I Do, however, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their *** doing drugs while I work. Can you imagine how much money the state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check?
Pass this along if you agree or simply delete if you don't. Hope you all will pass it along, though. Something has to change in this country -- and soon!

I agree with you & I will raise your bet!

How about all of these gang bangers & the like of them that is in prison for life?

What the point

What is the difference between a life sentence & a death sentence?

nuthin'

If some one does something so horrible & there is no doubt ,then need to not be sucking up tax money for being a burden on society.
They spend{average} $50,000 a year for being locked up doing dope . :pain:

I say they should harvest their organs then most of the people on Medical welfare could get a 2nd chance!

A few years ago that could have been me saying that. Then I married into a family that was involved in the system. It took a couple years to get free from it but I will never make a generalized jusgement like that now. I do agree with the drug test, but then what? Leave their little babies(who had no choice in the matter) out in the cold to starve? Take them away and put them is State or federal supported facilitys? There are never simple answers to complicated social ills

If you are on welfare/unemployment you should be looking for a job. Most places now days make you take a drug test so if you don't pass the test you are not able to look for work. I don't know but wouldn't that be a reason to deny them.
Here in Oregon they now have Oregon trail card instead of food stamps. It is just like an atm card. We don't want them to feel bad when they go by junk food.
One more thing. Why dont government/state employees have to take drug tests?

Drug test them , schmug test them , they'll still be able to buy booze and take whatever pills they may take.( xanax , vicodin,oxycontin , etc , soforth , so on .... )
Wouldn't it be better to make welfare reception dependant on community service? There are plenty of good programs the cities and states could use "volunteers" for ( trash pickup and such....) then the welfare folks would REALLY be looking for work , not just sitting back and collecting. We sentence people to "community service" all the time as punishment for crimes. If criminals can do that type of work , so can able-bodied people who want a "free" paycheck.
I know if I needed welfare and they told me , sure - you have to work here or there - I'd be down with working for it. Welfare should be in place to help people not be hungry. Not to help them live a life of leisure.
There's my dime.

Are you kidding me? Did you see the fight they put up with over giving a finger print to collect Welfare?????

GOD YES make them pass a urine drug test, how much more common sense does it need to be?

But if you are going to talk government gone mad, how about this one. Now for all you liberals preaching about Bush, this is DEMOCRAT COUNTRY boys. This is Ex Ca govenor Jerry "wheat germ" Brown who was mayor of Oakland Ca when this happened. What happened to the 1.1 million given to the Black Muslim Bakery? (click here) The "Black Muslim Bakery" they refer to in the story has done things like went and trashed corner stores in the black neighborhoods because they were selling liquer, saying that it was the stores fault the neighborhood was full of winos. Now, I agree to some degree with their point, however, seems all the stores that got trashed where Asian owned. :rolleyes:
The latest was a number of them being arrested for killing some poor newspaper reporter who was about to write a story on them.

This is right next to a city (Berkley) where they took the American flags off the fire trucks because they didn't want to "offend" anyone!

Just hand it out, hand it out no questions asked. Pump out babies, borrow money and max out credit cards, do what ever you want, we are here to give you anything you need.

By the waym this is the same government that Hillary and Micheal Moore want to run the our health care system. :pain:

techron 12-31-2007 08:59 PM

brian, i'm familiar with the muslim bakery stories, they pop up in the news on a regular basis--they're nut jobs. and all the kooks live in bezerkley, but is that all you could come up with!! :D :D what about richmond? east palo alto? or THE CITY?? the bay area has become looney tunes. :pain: (no offence to you)

i am against the electric chair.....
.
.
i am for electric bleachers!!!! :thumbup:

happy new years to all you hot rodders. :welcome:

Rob Keller 12-31-2007 10:50 PM

OK I'm in a wild spin heading for a snow drift with my foot to the floor but...

:evil:

Really how can we BEEACH

Bad kids trace back to bad parents who trace back to bad parenting...95% of the time.

Me having NO KIDS see the good in good well raised kids now & then.

On to my point.

Look @ our Government how many Trillions of Dollar$ are we in debt?

So how can we expect the simpletons to take care of their selves when the "..{I use this term extremely lightly} Best minds of our country" can even do it.

:confused:

Around here you are Either Poor or OK there is no middle of the road..

Seems like it would be better just to start a new USA.

like the GOOBERment aught to file bankruptcy. ;)

You have got to be kidding me! Like we have someone around today that could do what our founding fathers did!

This past summer I took a vaction hitting all the "Birth of a Nation" stuff from Boston down to Virgina. That is one thing I kept thinking over and over, who in the living hell could we call on to do something that Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, etc. did? LOL, there isn't a combination of twenty people in any office in America would could/would do what any one of our founding fathers did on their own!!!!

Give me a break! We have the best country in the world, it just needs some repair work. But we certainly don't need to start over!

We don't make enough money to buy drugs. :D

I am against welfare except for the most needy cases, and I do mean needy. I am also against drug testings. I want people out of my life, my blood and government out of my wallet.

schnitz 01-01-2008 02:16 PM

My wife and I were talking about this recently too (We got the same Email from her dad...). Basic conclusion we both came to is indeed a pretty sad one if you stop to think about it this way. Say the Goobermint started testing for drugs before doling out the welfare checks/food stamps/federal aid/ whatever you call it. Suddenly crack/methheads have a lack of funds and ability to finance the addictions they have. What do they start doing? Start robbing business's and private homes, that's were the money is, right? How else would they finance the habits they have?

It's not like you see any too many drug users just showing up at an employer's door just begging to go to work. That would be the day. Take the easy way out and steal for what you need. I could foresee the crime rate going thru the roof and drug related violence becoming even more prevalent. Personally, I'd love to see mandatory drug tests for those on welfare, but at the expense of needing more slugs for my 12 ga., I'd rather not see it happen. Ever here of the lessor of two evils? If I caught someone burglarizing my property, I can guarantee they will never do it again. However, I do know that I'll have to answer for that judgment call with a life sentence as well.

My solution to all this is probably too simple too, but here it is.

1. Clean house in D.C. The President, the House, the Senate, even clear out the lobbyists. Start completely over. Give elected officials one chance. If they can't find enough loopholes to make their millions of $$$'s in one terms' time, why give them decades to do it? Ted Kennedy and my own states' Dave Obey come to mind. I say line their pockets once and toss them out. This may be the only way to execute real change in government.

2. This part may throw a few for a loop, but please hang with me as I explain my reasoning why. Legalize drugs, and then tax the snot out of them. 50% tax should do it. Probably finance the entire government payroll on the taxes alone. Works well for the tobacco industry. Just don't subsidize the "drug farmers" like they do the tobacco farmers. Anybody that has been around tobacco farming knows exactly what I'm talking about. Portions of what smokers pay in cigar/cigarette taxes are funneled right back into tobacco farmer's pockets to help them out in bad growing years.

Now I'm also talking about strictly enforcing a lack of drug use in certain professions, Dr.s, emergency health care providers, and airline pilots come to mind right away. Now here it gets a bit touchy, but hear me out. One of the biggest challenges to this is that the parents in this country will have to step up what they do to make sure that their children can tell the difference between morally right and wrong from an very early age. More on this in a bit...I've never tried drugs, and saw no reason to try them. Heck, I don't even take aspirin for a headache.

Another part of legalizing drugs in my system is to inflict the most severe punishments our courts dole out for people convicted of any crime with any known narcotic in their system. I'm talking death penalty here, boys. Would you get high and knock off a liquor store if getting caught meant getting a one way trip six feet under? How about driving impaired by drugs? Simply put, you commit a felony or kill someone and test positive for drugs, you die. No second chances, no stays of execution. Make people think before they shoot up about the consequences, and drug usage will drop. Crime rates (barring those in D.C. of course :rolleyes: ) will drop as well. Who needs a new SuperMax prison if you clean house once a week? I really like the "electric bleacher" idea that was posted earlier.

Anyways, I'll step down now before I say something I may really regret.



In a while, Chet.
