Thanks Adam. A pee test for welfare checks? Huh.

Subject: PEE TEST

Like a lot of folks in this country, I have a job. I work, they pay me.
I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as they see
fit. In order to get that paycheck.. I am required to pass a
random urine test, which I have no problem with.

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 sit on their ass.

Could you imagine how much money the state would save if people had to
pass a urine test to get a public assistance check?

Wow, instead of fighting against the indignity of having to pee in a cup to keep a job (not to mention the blatant violation of the 4th and 5th amendments), this asshat wants to share that indignity with others. This is how we slouch toward fascism.

We got this one in May 2007! My self-proclaimed "traditional conservative", retired Colonel father-in-law sent us this implying it was written by a friend's adult son. ROTFL

I am SO glad I found this site. I thought we were alone with this burden. *sigh* Nice to know there are fellow travelers on this path to insanity! LOL

All you really have to do is shoot back a few well-composed replies and the emails will slow down. Checking the email against Snopes and reporting what you finds will ALSO slow the flow. Trust me - it works!

Yes, if you did this it would be a much better world because all of those former pot-heads who were sitting on the sofa doing bong hits playing X-Box instead of looking for a damn job (maybe they just got laid off of a good job because of failing a drug test?) now have to quit smoking pot in order to get the welfare check, so they turn to what, alcohol?

That kind of setup makes Budweiser happy, but I don't know that it's a net improvement for society to be converting stoners into alcoholics while they are also looking for a new job that also doesn't drug test. Or maybe they "ask their doctor" about getting something from the pharma companies. If they have health insurance. Yep, we have such a wonderful social safety net in this great nation. You can't spell "social" without thinking of that evil word Socialism, after all. So best not to have any at all, unless you are in that top 1%. Bush's Base.
