My awesome cousin forwarded this to me and I think I agree with it, but I'm not sure...
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, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their ASS, 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 can't really see a downside, other than paying for all the lab work/equipment/technicians. In all fifty states. At every welfare check pick-up site.
I wonder how quickly clean pee would become a grade-A item on the black market. I wonder how much we'd save versus how much it would cost to implement. I wonder if it would increase the number of homeless families.
I wonder if I'm over-thinking this.
What do you think?
