TANSTAAFL – Addendum

Just got this message in an email from a friend and it dovetails perfectly into my last post. So here it is thanks to Larry C.

To Pee or Not To Pee

I have a job.
I work, they pay me.

I pay my taxes & the government
distributes my taxes as it sees fit.

In order to get that paycheck, in my case,
I am required to pass a random urine test
(with which I have no problem).

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 BUTT—-doing drugs while I work.

Can you imagine how much money each state would save
if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check?

I guess we could call the program “URINE OR YOU’RE OUT”!

Pass this along if you agree or simply delete if you don’t.
Hope you all will pass it along, though.
Something has to change in this country – AND SOON!

P.S. Just a thought, all politicians should have to pass a urine test too!

    This so true, unfortunately.

    Yes it is true, and yes it is very unfortunate. But one thing is also very true – it falls upon us, the vocal, voting public to put an end to these things that we all acknowledge need fixing. Frankly, that is what I intend here. Rather than just ‘flapping my gums’ moaning about ‘the way things are’ to my circle of friends & acquaintances, I have decided to make it my duty to insure that everyone I know (and I hope, everyone they know) is fully aware of what is going on and what steps we can take to combat the wrongs we see.

    There is absolutely no justification for many of the ways the government spends our money and solutions lie within our grasp if we will only enforce and exert the powers given us in the US Constitution.

    Thanks Joyce for your attention and your regular comments.
