    Then, most people don't have to worry about losing their bennies. We can just cut off the ones that are buying dope on our dime. Which mean, that it will be easier to provide bennies to the folks who really need them. Sounds like a win-win to me.

    Also if an able bodied person is on welfare they should be looking for work. You can't get hired anywhere if you can't pass a drug test. Oh yea, and if you take a drug test for a job, PLEASE DON'T CALL THE NEXT MORNING AND ASK IF YOU PASSED.
    Wow..people do this? Last time I took a piss test to get a job I was notified by the people that did the test before I even left that I was clean.

    Yes, at least once. My husband years ago applied for a job and they actually took strands of hair to test. He got the job but maybe it was because another applicant did just that. They all laughed about it.

    If a parent decided they didn't want to feed a child because they had a disability, they would be most likely find themselves sitting in prison. This governor and those who support this bill are no different. Drug addiction is a disease and can be cured or managed. If I were a dictator and came to power, I'd know some of the first people to kill.

    Of course I did. Doesn't mean they didn't inform me about it anyways. I was on my way out the door when the nurse at the counter told me to wait a minute. Then the technician came and told me it.

    OK, so you have now taken the children away. They are now property of the government. What do we do with the kids, now that we have custody of them, and how will we pay for it?

    I've never heard of same day service. But, then it didn't really matter since I never had to study for a drug test.

    Or put the kid up for adoption. IE no prison time required.

    And yes drug addiction can be cured/managed. As such perhaps they should be getting help instead of toking it up while spending tax dollars.

    Crap...had a post all done up but got an error when I tried to post it.

    So put simply...there are already programs around that are designed to take care of children who have been taken away from their parents. Use em. If needed give em more funding via the money that will be saved because drug addicts are no longer recieving welfare benefits because of their drug addiction.
