Ridiculous email of the week

Ridiculous email of the week:
Job - Urine Test

How greedy is it okay to be? The current financial crisis could be blamed on high powered greed and selfishness.

Here is an example of what I mean:
JOB - URINE TEST
(Whoever wrote this one deserves a HUGE pat on the back!)

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 ASS, 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?

Pass this along if you agree or simply
delete if you don't. Hope you all will pass it along, though . . .

Something has to change in this country -- and soon!!!!!

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


This email tells me that some people have no idea how the government works.

Read the book, Take the Rich Off Welfare By Mark Zepezauer and you'll have a better idea of how the government really takes care of its people.

Excerpt from Take the Rich Off Welfare:
Welfare-the money government gives away to corporations and wealthy individuals-costs us more than $815 billion a year. That's:
  • 47% of what it costs to run the US government (which is about $1.73 trillion a year, not counting entitlement trust funds like Social Security and Medicare)

  • enough money to eliminate the federal debt in just over eight years

  • more than four times what we spend on welfare for the poor (currently around $193 billion a year)
