    Just curious. How does a corporation piss in a bottle?

    Too bad assistance nor employment are rights. Maybe if you were fiscally responsible for something, you'd support any measure meant to not throw money away.

    Maaaaaaaaan...

    Speeding is breaking the law. If I see you speeding should I be allowed to report you and you then pay a fine? The right to privacy should never end that's why it's called privacy.

    So those who receive subsidies, tax breaks, etc. too? It's all forms of government money. I think we've just covered essentially everyone in America. Everyone gets randomly drug tested by the government. Afterall, this is not an invasion of privacy because drug use is against the law.

If they were smart they would have someone watch you fill the cup up or at least have security pat you down to make sure that you do not have any bottles on you.


    Time for a "patriotic whiz-fest" in Washington, too?
    I would like for them to take a test on the constitution where the answers have to be hand written by them and no multiple choice.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    You are allowed to report me for speeding. If a cop then observes what you've reported I will be ticketed. You've never called the cops because of a reckless driver?

    How exactly do you test a coporation? Do you test only the CEO, board of directors, rank and file.... If you find someone who tested positive do you punish just him or the entire corporation? So, you test some Corporate Officers of Company A, they test positive, subsidy taken away, corporation loses business because they lost their leaders and corporation lost its reputation, company goes under, more people unemployed and on welfare, then the testing cycle starts again.

    Maybe I'm just channeling my inner Orwell, but I firmly believe that the reason this is not so is because of cost, not desire.

    No. But these days it seems that the cop doesn't have to observe ****. Aggressive driver laws and blah blah blah, you just need to report people and they get tickets. Makes getting revenge on jerks easy.
