Default The State could save money if...

URINE TEST

Like a lot of folks in this state (about 90%), 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?

your idea makes TOO much sense.
nevertheless, the state would find a way to have to hire several thousands more employees to administer, monitor, check, double check, re-check, oversee, quality assure, audit, publicize, hotline, on-line, pre-test, beta, fail-safe, oversee, perpetuate, etc, this program it would take 25 years to impliment.

You hit the nail on the head.

You get the award for "best of a chain mail in your own words" award :tonka:

But yeah, that is a great email and I agree with it 100% Those strips they stick in the piss can't cost that much and the morons that look to see what color they will turn can't cost that much either.
