No. It's not. And that was my point initially. But poor people aren't cattle. Why should they exist in the dark and all be painted with one broad
brush when the reality is they aren't all like this.
So some knee-jerk politicians take the easy way out and pass some knee-jerk law that really doesn't address any of the real issues we face with this
and other examples like it and get some knee-jerk votes and rah-rahs.
So, drug test the poor. Tell them they can't have a candy bar now and then or feel sexy or forego part of their budget for a tattoo. They're poor.
They deserve to be controlled.
Well remember this while you rah-rah. If we don't address the true root causes, if we continue to argue about and focus on and pass more and more laws
like this and continue to think that the rest of us are somehow above it, somehow immune, we're mistaken. The number poor is ever-increasing ,by
design, and one day we may all be living under these "laws" we've created. Or worse. The poor are not stealing your tax money or your pensions or the
value of your home. They are not the root cause.
And so again, it's ironic to me that the very people who fear big government would support and join in with even more "laws" like this.
Laws like this, that get some emotions up and stir some outrage, well they're really serving only one master. And they're using us (or trying to) to
do it...to build our own prison, to dig our own graves. That so few even see this....
