So the states are considering drug tests for recipients of public aid. About damned time! The rest of us are (generally) subject to random drug tests. In fact, over 85% of the private workforce is subject to random drug testing. If the source of your income or housing is the federal or state government, why should you be treated any differently?
“It’s not fair” cries the ACLU. Fuck ’em. If they want the money taken out of the paychecks of the hard working people who have to be drug free, then they can at least meet that same standard. If not, well then, maybe they can use their drug money to eat and pay rent. I really don’t care.
I’d like to see anyone getting food stamps or any aid “for the kids” like WIC to have to be held to the same standard. Same for publicly subsidized housing. It;s nto too much to ask that they pee in a cup once in a while to keep their freebies.
I see also that there is a small outcry for those who are on unemployment to be tested, and those that say that it’s not fair to the unemployed either.
If ya got time to smoke dope or crack or whatever particular chemical you like, then you got time to find a job.
Or starve. It’s all the same to me.
