    Yep. Honestly, it's a waste of time. It's a waste of resources. It's also a diversion from real problems that they cannot solve, as it appeals to our collective need to feel superior, and too many otherwise intelligent people fall for it.

    OH look..another "THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!!" post. Maybe if mom spent money on food instead of that joint the kids wouldn't "starve"? Maybe if mom hadn't smoked that joint then she would have gotten that assistance?

    WTH happened to the concept of personal responsibility in this nation?

    Would you like to give the government the power to sterilize irresponsible people?

    It's called being responsible. I know you liberals don't have a clue what that means.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Maybe you could just answer the question instead of running around waving your arms.

    ALEC writes all these bills.. but since the death of Trayvon Martin dozens of corporate sponsors have quit.

    Irrelevent but no. There is a huge difference between procreation and drug use. To compare the two is one huge strawman.

    Re: Deal OKs bill requiring drug testing for welfare recipients

    I do like the personal responsibility line as if jobs were plentiful and paid well enough for everyone capable of working could find a job. I think if those who think it is as simple as 'personal responsibility' study who is on welfare, and that is a huge misnomer, more like working poor receiving food stamps, daycare and housing assistance, you would see the few who are lazy bums don't define the rest.

    I do note the politicians duck being required to pee in a bottle to receive tax payer money.

    Too bad...
