I wish I knew who to credit with the following idea but I do not. It is, however, so simple and yet so profound that I wanted to share it with everyone. Friends, this is something we should do. I quote:
Like most folks in this country, 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 in my case, 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.
So, here is my Question: 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, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their a** — doing drugs, while I work. . . . Can you imagine how much money each state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check?
I guess we could title that program, ‘Urine or You’re Out’.
Now that’s some good thinking and would save far more than it costs! What do you think?
I read where another guy expanded this concept a bit and proposed that all college students receiving government aid should likewise be required to take a random urine tests if they received public money. Hey, let’s expand it further and say that all financial executives getting bailout money should also have to pass random urine tests. Oh, and don’t forget — let’s urine test the guys in Washington who are handing out our money! They really must be high on something to think we can borrow our way out of the mess they created.
