Do you also believe that anyone living on government/state/county entitlement programs be tested? Do you also think that if they are tested and proven they are using drugs they should be thrown off of every entitlement they receive? If not, why?<quoted text>
I thought drugs was a big thing with nam vets.
If you tested when you were in, you should still test when your out claiming disability.

People on disability have more money available to buy drugs and in their minds they have more reasons to use drugs.
Welfare people don't get enough money to buy drugs.
There for if we were to test one or the other, we would get more bang for our buck if we tested vets and stopped paying those vets that are proven to be drug addicts.

Isn't that that the truth.

You have a very warped way of thinking Rhonda I you think vets get more money than people on welfare. Again as usual you dodge the question and tried to spin it around 180 degrees. What is all of your hate for the vets coming from, were you booted out of the service and now have nothing but hate? Did you know that most welfare people get between 50-60K a year when all of the entitlements are added together? That is far more than any vet gets. Now lets try again, do you think that everyone that gets taxpayer's money should be tested for drugs? If not, why?

We are not talking about just "vets", we are talking about DISABLED VETS OR SO CALLED DISABLED like you. Ones that say they can't work but they can be on the internet talking trash 24/7, the ones that pretend they have PTSD and can't work. You welfare queens get way more then any welfare person and you get it for the rest of your life. It's way more of a drain on our country and it should be cut off.

PTSD is the new black. Because it is subjective, vets can claim it easily -- and falsely. The VA is now paying vets disability for PTSD related frauds.
Yes, anyone drawing welfare or disability should be subject to random testing. Paying for welfare is one thing... but paying for drugs is beyond the pale. If they test positive, drop them immediately.
Take it one step further. No rehab. If you test positive you're automatically banned (dropped) from the system for 5 years, or 10 years or life. Have some kind of a penalty. Protect taxpayer revenue, instead of letting it spiral out of control. Send a message that drugs won't be tolerated.
And vets selling their PTSD meds (because they don't have PTSD) should serve time in a federal lockup.
