    I voted other. It should be at the discretion of the employer.
    "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"

    I hope to hell not.
    Has our nation gone that far downhill that a drug test is suggested ?
    I think not, but is there a way of measuring this ?

    Absolutely. We should require all employers to test, and test frequently, to make sure that all of their employees and potential employees are on drugs.

    I said no, because I want companies to decide whether or not to do it.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24

    Re: Drug Test

    I feel the same for most jobs, but think it should be required for jobs where doing one's job stoned has a high livelihood of causing disaster. (Drivers, pilots, police, firemen, medical personnel, senators, congressmen, etc.)

    I think it's funny how some people don't want "big govt" involved in their lives in any manner, but are perfectly happy to serve up themselves to big business in ways that even George Orwell couldn't imagine.

    Well, you do not have the same "choice" involved with employment as you do with your government. It is easier to quit my job than to move to France, and hopefully keep my job; but if not find another to replace my former income.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.
