So whats your point? Let them drink beer. Beer is good.DF Homer Simpson
The neegra's are just gonna LOVE this. I'm sure that it's probably racist, trying to keep the black man down, etc... And I can't help but wonder how many will literally starve to death out of refusal to work.DF(?) Average American citizen that actually works for a living.
Please stay focused on the current presidential administration. Cant let Fast and Furious and Benghazi die down.
The whole country needs to do this. What an eye opener that would be!
Maybe if we don't give "them" a free living, then maybe "they" will leave.
It wont happen because too many lib dems would fail the test and then create 1 MORE DOUBLE STANDARD and I don't think I can handle any more double standards.
Can we have a test for voter eligibility?
yes yes yes!!!!
Excellent bill, hope it passes.And that nothing else does.Rage
hopefully, barron and his lib friends will give of their paycheck to help the ones who fail the test. is that right all righteous one, barry? you should.
osamma bin bomma will not approve.
So, someone please lay out an argument where drug testing potential unemployment benefit collectors is a bad thing?
Not a chance in hell the ACLU is going to allow this to pass.
First drug test every politician before they get paid. Good for the goose and all that.
Perfect idea, it's about time. The downside, you better get your license to carry a gun and be ready to use it. Crime is going to skyrocket, they are going to get their drugs if they have to steal all our stuff to feed their addiction.
Being against this bill is like forcing women to have rape babies!
I agree that they should have to pass a drug test for assitance...but here's the kicker..since they won't be eligible for assitance due to drug use, then they will need it for housing, or medicial. This should go for food stamps too...and what ever happend to food STAMPS?! I remember when someone got a stamp for bread, and one for eggs, etc. Now, they get a lone star card, and can buy twinkees and hot dogs...sheesh...it should be for basic needs, ie bread, eggs, milk, flour...
So let me guess Mr. Ultra Lib Dem attorney - you think this infringes on their rights and is unconstitutional?
Of course BG is against this. As a defense lawyer, you thrive on law breakers, that is your bread & butter.
THE KICKER AS IT WAS CALLED IS WE CANT SEND CHILDREN TO BED,SCHOOL,OR GRAMMAS HOUSE HUNGRY.I DONT CARE IF THE ADDICT FREEZES TO DEATH IN THE DARK BUT NONE OF US WOULD STAND BY AND WATCH CHILDREN SLEEPING IN THE DOORWAYS.STILL CONSERVATIVE BUT STILL LOOKING A LITTLE FURTHER DOWN THE RAOD.
"that is your bread & butter"I think Bubear prefers toasted tortilla chops and salsa.Double Fake Joe T. Garcia
Whose gonna pay for the drug screens? i think it is about $150 a pop.
Hope to collect unemployment benefits?Do any of you commenters "hope" to collect benefits? If you become unemployed?If so start pissin in the cup.
2:57 - a person in front of me used the lone star card for cigarettes and beer. How does that happen?
Sounds good for show, but let's try and come up with a workable policy.1) Let's look at all of our drug laws and see if we need to make any changes.2) Let's improve education so that people understand better why some drugs are illegal.3) Let's create programs to help those that are addicted.4) Let's prosecute and punish ALL drug users equally, in a way that benefits society.5) Let's reform our courts and prison system so that it does not feed off of the poor.6) And finally, Let's do random testing in other areas too.Policies that are reasonable and fair are worth applying to all citizens.
You can't keep them from buying booze -n-cigs, even if the cards said they were not allowed....because they sell the cards for a little cash to buy their stuff.
I agree with it 100%!! When I was a kid, it was embarassing to someone if people knew they were on welfare or free lunches or foodstamps. Or, for that matter, unemployment. I've never taken a penney of any of it and never will. It all needs to be on a VERY temporary basis and needs to be policed for freeloaders. In Canada, you take any kind of social assistance, you don't vote. You make your income from taxpayer dollars, you don't vote. It is the definition of a conflict of interest. PERIOD!! They also require a Canadian photo ID, a certified copy or your original birth certificate. We need to take the same approach to this problem.
Those geniuses are going to punish children for the sins of the father(or mother). And who is going to pay for this testing. And why not be fair and test everyone that receives any benefit from the state.Oh wait, that would mean we all get tested because we all use roads, expect police and fire, are educated, drink clean water,...Daddy still hasn't learned.
Hope it passes. 3:33- it will soon pay for itself.
a person in front of me used the lone star card for cigarettes and beer. How does that happen?3:48 PMThat story is bullsh. Lone Star cards can't be used for beer and cigarettes. It's a computer controlled transaction that checks product UPC's against approved items. Any non approved items are kicked out and must be paid by some method other than a LS Card. If it was paid for by LS, then the store is submitting a false item code to the state. This is highly unlikely because the state checks sales records and it would be easily caught. Retailers have too much to lose if they are caught defrauding.Do they allow people to buy junk food instead of wholesome food? Yes. But you can't buy beer and cigarettes with a LS Card.
If I have to pass a drug test to keep my JOB- then people should have to pass a drug test to receive assistance! I mean it is MY tax dollars that is paying for these programs!!
And how often are you going to check? before every payment? And who is going to do the checking? Just think, a black market for pee.For what unemployment pays the state will pay more for the drug tests than they pay out in benefits.
This is FANTASTIC because drug tests are FREE!What?... Not free? They cost almost as much as we are actually paying people? This program would require us to raise taxes? Really? And it would be a logistic nightmare b/c of an appeal process that would have to be created? And it would create a whole other level of bureaucracy? Wow...that's...genius...??? And since a whole bunch of the money is to benefit children, we don't drug test the kids, we test their parents. So, kids with parents that might use drugs don't get $ to eat. It just gets better & better. I see why Perry is behind it.
Florida's welfare drug tests cost more money than state saves, data showsRead more here: http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/04/20/2758871/floridas-welfare-drug-tests-cost.html#storylink=cpy
One state ran drug tests on welfare folks, not many tested positvie. The cost was much higher than the savings.
I think the Libertarians will ask why are you adding another layer of government and expense to deal with something that really isn't relevant to society?
Hmm, let me see if I understand this.Many employers - OK, maybe not head shops - required applicants to undergo pre-employment screening, or consent to random testing during the course of employment. Railroad, airline, bankers, truck & forklift drivers, heavy equipment operators come to mind. State Bar members, probably not.Unemployment benefit recipients must affirm that they applied for meaningful work, and were ready, willing, and available to work during the period for which benefits are being paid.Gosh, I hope we don't offend tender sensibilities by subjecting freeloaders to the horrors of testing - aw, heck, who am I kidding? I agree with Don Henley & Co: "...I'd like to find your inner child and kick its little a$$ - Get Over It!
The price of smuggled clean urine will go up. There will be another layer of Govt to add to the welfare. The taxpaying middle class will pay for the drug tests.Smart move
But if it is legalized......?
People this aint got nuthin to do with race... pleeez, why yall pickin at the spookzicans (he who drives illegal and brakes when seeing law inforcement)them darkies (afrikans) aint the problem either. Hell, some of em gots real jobs like prezidents and shit.People its them whiteys I tell you they been keepin the brother down for years... Drug Test? pleez I been testin this shit for years it aint all that.....
What do you think is cheaper? $150 drug test and NOT payout welfare, or just keep rolling like it is? At what point did they stop teaching math at school? I realize that few have enough common sense to make the smallest of thoughtful decisions anymore, but WOW! Spend $1000-1500 a month in social service or $150 and end it? That's a real brain buster!
Pass the law as soon as possible so all the dopers will move to New Mexico or Colorado to get welfare, food stamps and Medicaid! All Red states will follow our lead. Hats off to Rick Perry!
Who drinks clean water? Not those of us in Bridgeport!!!Just read the card every citizen received last week. Gross!! E Coli, but in a differnt form.. GAG
