Require a urine test first

January 10, 2010
The Leader Herald

Like most folks in this country, I have a job. I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit. In order to get that paycheck, I am required to pass a random urine test (which I have no problem with). What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don't have to pass a urine test.

So, here is my question: Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check because I have to pass one to earn it for them? Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet. I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their behind doing drugs while I work. Can you imagine how much money the state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get public assistance? We could title that program, "Urine or You're Out."

Something has to change in this country, and soon.
