I received this in an email today and thought it was pretty good.
Like a lot of folks in the USA, I had a job. I worked and they paid me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as they see fit. In order to get that paycheck I was 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. Shouldn’t one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check, because I had 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 sit on his or her ass, and buy dope and booze with my hard-earned money.
Can you imagine how much money the government would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check?
