In a More Nearly Perfect World

Got this through the email pipe:

Like a lot of folks in this state, we have jobs. We work, they pay us. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit. In order to get that paycheck, we are required to pass a random urine test with which most of us 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 we 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 butts, doing drugs, while we 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?

Guess we could title that program, ‘Urine or You’re Out’.

The Navy might call this “perform *  to be served.”
