Talk about derailing a thread.
Its funny how all those who scream about how welfare recipients are just a bunch of drug users and mandatory drug testing will reduce the welfare bill
are surprisingly absent from this thread
or perhaps its not so surprising
These tests were never about cutting the welfare bill, they were about a politician screwing the system to make his wife's medical company richer, and
by extension himself richer.
people need to realise that the masses claiming welfare is not about entitlement, it is about a lack of jobs, lack of opportunity, something which
also increases the amount of drug use within a community, go figure.
This problem will go on and on and on and on, until people finally start to realise the only way to end it is to deal with the root cause, corporate
greed that cuts and cuts wages and when it can finally cut them no more, they just out source the jobs to a country that is cheaper
If jobs paid a wage that people could live on, pay for their home, for food, for their kids collage education and healthcare, maybe a few luxuries
once in a while and maybe even the occasional vacation then we wouldn't have the same welfare burden we have now. Now this may seem like some sort of
Utopian dream, but you know what, America had that, right up until the 80's and Regan, that wonderful and revered president decided it was in the
nations best interest to deregulate the banks and industry.... Because it would create economics growth, yeah right
Until people can get their heads round the fact that the rich do not create jobs, that people who screw others will not become philanthropic if they
have more, they just become even more greedy. They just take the money and run.
The country is run by greedy and corrupt men and women who are bought and paid for by corporations, the governments whether local or national have
only one point in their focus and that is commerce. Making more money from less effort and at others expense.
Drug tests wont solve anything, however jobs will
