    Good point, educators should absolutely be tested.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Well, hell, let's just have everyone tested always. Government is the answer after all. never knew you were such a fan of big government. I bet there are other things we can check for as well. Make sure there's not too fat in the diet? Sugar will have to be monitored as well. And we sure can't have smoking or booze either. And let's make sure all the readning and viewing material is appropriate. No sleeping past 6 am either. We all know the early bird gets the worm. And since you want this can opened, might as well go big or go home.


    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I don't think its bigotry. I really don't. I think its holding people accountable when they want benefits. Also, its been said already. Its very easy to pass a piss test when you know its coming. I have to take a surprise piss test every couple of weeks in the military. Why can't a poor person take one every few months so they can receive their benefits? Politicians too.

    I served in the early & mid 80s. I think I had only one piss test that truly was a surprise, when I was stationed at Fr Bragg. When I was in Germany we had several piss tests, but only if another event triggered it. If anybody on the base got busted for something drug-related, you just knew that the whole base would get a "surprise" piss test within 3-5 days. You could almost set your watch by it.

    Well, now that the gov't is cutting military, they're looking for a reason to get rid of guys. Piss test is the easiest and first way they do it.

    House Set to Ban Welfare Payments at Strip Clubs - US News and World Report

    See here's an example of abuse, just like the recipients using their benefits to purchase illegal drugs. This is bull**** that shouldn't be happening. The detractors always have excuses (more the exception than the rule) to justify not correcting things like this.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
