    Unfortunately, your solution would be the beginning of another story.
    Maybe build a wall around Manhattan and dump the poor there?

They told me they are gave a swab to put in their mouth. According to them as long as you don't put your tongue on it, you pass.
    That sounds strange, and I wouldn't trust a myth like that... Maybe they aren't testing for pot or maybe they are doing other things, like that drink mix that cleans the urine.

    People should be more worried about supporting their families adequately than getting high - some reality, here. No one who's responsibility free goes on welfare to begin with. They all have children.

    Or is there something wrong with wanting people to be responsible for their life choices?

    I have 4 kids - however much I miss drinking - I don't get wasted every night. Nor do I do anything like I did when I was younger and more immature. My responsibilities and priorities have shifted as it should when you aren't just in your boat alone.

    You mean turn to prostitution, drug dealing and theft? That's not very laudable, AS.

    Well, then at least you understand what we’re dealing with here.



    There’s nothing wrong with wanting people to make responsible choices in life…except it is inevitable that some people won’t. As a society, how do we deal with them? Do we kill them off or let them mooch off the rest of us? Do we kill them directly with a bullet to the head, or indirectly through homelessness and the Darwinian underworld? Do we let them mooch directly through Welfare or indirectly through increased crime and policing/prison costs?

    I support aiding people who WANT to be helped - by first giving them the option of actually getting away from their addiction.

    In exchange for support you must clean yourself and lives up - if you fail to do so then you will be removed from the support system.

    if smeone doesn't want to be helped then, by all means, don't bother.

    So much for that myth. Thanks for wasting money on hysteria over something that is barely a problem.

    Many of the alleged "leeches" on welfare now are the people who, until 2 years ago, were part of a functional work force and were productive contributors to economy. Now their lives are in chaos, their investments for the future are disintegrating before their eyes, and they are reduced to lesser prosperity. So... let's kick them while they're down and imply that they're drug abusers as well!
    The Tampa Tribune, huh? So much for what, Florida maybe? Are you applying this stat nationwide now. And they misreported it, it's 96% maybe. The whole number sounds like bull****, it should even to you a galactic sized liberal.
    "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.
