Urine or You're Out!

Whoever wrote this should be applauded and the idea implemented, but, then as my sister pointed out, law suits would be filed for invading welfare recipient's 'right to privacy.' The only people getting rich in this country are lawyers.

I received this via email and have no idea of the origin, but I agree 100%. I wish I could take credit for the witty title I used, but I borrowed it from the person who wrote the following:

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!!!!!

Note from Ging: Heck, if I could qualify for assistance, I'd pee in a cup right in the reception area.

Amen to this! LOL

I definitely cracked a smile over your last comment about peeing in the reception area.

YES!!! and here is another idea to add to it.Account for every penny they get.Working a graveyard shift in a small land casino you can watch the atm get busy on check day.They are inline at midnight to get started gambling on the state's money.Another question is who is watching the kids?The selling of food stamps is still an unaddressed problem.The last and biggest problem is NO ONE CARES!!!If these problems was addressed funding through the state and federal goverments would be lost.In short they know the abuse but choose not to address it because the less on help the less the state would recieve.Those of us who work and pay taxes can continue to support those who don't.Aren't we lucky?
