    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Do you understand the concept of welfare? Ask the myriad mothers who have no other form of support than to create babies at the tax payers expense? How about illegal aliens whose health care benefits are comprised of emergency room visits at tax payer expense? What do you think "spread the wealth" is all about for millions of Americans? What do you think a "living wage" is for many, working or not?

    Who do you think pays for social welfare?

    You seem to think welfare recipients are entitled to tax payer money without obligation? It's free, just come and get it?

    If that's your opinion then you pay for it.

    The point is not giving away tax money to welfare recipients without obligation. The point is that, instead of singling out just one group of people, drug tests should apply to ALL who receive Federal money. That includes all the employees of corporations that get bailouts, all the employees of corporations that get government grants, all of the employess of banks that get bailouts, all the employees of corporations that get government contracts, etc, etc. After all, if the Federal government is going to keep ruling that corporations are people too, then corporations must be treated like people, and constitutionally, as long as corporations get equal protection under the law, they are going to also have to accept responsibility, just like anybody else, under the law. Otherwise, corporations should be given a new name, instead of being called people. I would suggest that "royalty" might be a good one to use.

    Test the assholes, along with the poor.

    Can we also deport people with extreme and moronic ideas?

    That would help move the country back to a moderate center.

    I think welfare recipients should be subject to randomized and mandatory drug testing. There is absolutely no problem with that.

    These bills are aimed directly at the poor, so it is singling out a class of people for peeing into cups. No bankers, no contractors who have Federal contracts, no corporations that receive Federal subsidies, or anybody else who sucks on the government's teat, is included. Only the poor, who receive welfare.

    You know, I am not against this law. As soon as it applies to the banksters and corporate CEO's, as well as the poor, I will be for it. It will be constitutional then.

    Article is here.
    I've never had a job--even in the service--where I didn't have to piss in a cup upon entry, as well as being subject to random testing.

    Since that's my tax money that those deadbeats are getting, I want to be sure that they're not using it to buy drugs. It's bad enough that they spend it on trips to the casino and luxury cruises. I mean, no one seems to mind that the rest of us have to take drugs tests.
