Although I wish I could take credit for this next bit, I can't. I don't know who wrote it, but it was forwarded to me through email by My Dear Friend M., whom I don't know what I would do without.
We both agree whoever did write it deserves a HUGE pat on the back! ~~
THE JOB - URINE TEST
Like a lot of folks in this state, 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 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.
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 A--, 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 a public assistance check?
I guess we could title that program, 'Urine or You're Out'. ~~
I love that one.
The other thing I want you to think about during this election season is what other things you'd rather not pay for with your tax dollars. Would you like to pay for, say, abortion? That's what Barack Obama wants you to do. FOCA not only would make abortion available on demand but it would also require our tax dollars to fund and abortion for anyone who wants one.
How do you like them apples?
