We would save so much money if we drug tested! A $10 test would kick alot of people off welfare

I'm for Drug Testing and I'm on Unemployment Benefits. I have NOTHING to hide. BUT I Believe the other PART of that BILL should be TESTING POLITICIANS and anyone who works for the STATE and Government. I worked for the Gov't for 8 years (20 yrs ago) and they do have people that were doing COKE, smoking weed, etc. I don't care if they TEST ME EVERY WEEK. They will NOT find anything, ever!
So lets FIGHT for ALL be included in this Bill!

There are no test for the synthetic products that people are putting into their bodies & these people know this. This is why people are smoking products with a clear warning on the package "not for human consumption"

Hitler and Stalin loved people like you! If you want to surrender your right to privacy then fine but you are not free to surrender mine. You sound like a typical self righteous twit!

To hell with random testing. Test them all! The cost of testing has come down so much in recent years, the cost of testing will be much lower than the cost of fraud!
If recipients aren't using drugs, they should have no problem submitting to a drug test. If they want to use drugs, they should get a job, purchase a secluded house, and dope it up on their own dime.

I like the way you think!
Most employees are subject to random drug testing.
Government employees, politicians, and handout recipients should AT LEAST be held to the same standards, if not higher standards.

Oh yea while I'm venting! The other day at the supermarket a big fat African American woman ahead of me in line pulls out her Louisiana purchase card to pay for her two buggies of groceries out of her bra, drops her iPhone and wad of cash witch she used to pay for her whiskey and tobacco. Meanwhile her 5 or 6 heathen kids are running around like a bunch of wild Indians looking for a place to sh+t . Then in the parking lot she gets into a new 40 thousand dollor SUV that has 24" rims on it! I wanted to VOMIT ! I just bought her and her family's groceries! As if her fat Ars has missed a meal. What is wrong with this picture people! Am I the only one who see's these types of things?

No, you aren't the only one that sees these types of things. I see the same thing all the time, especially at Sam's Club.
When I made pretty much the same statement on other threads, I was told that fraud incidences are minuscule, as if anyone knows how much fraud there is unless they look for it.
The liberal, progressive, socialist minds are closed to facts, logic, and reason. We now have 47% of our country on handout programs. As of the next election, it will be an impossibility to elect a conservative President ever again. That is until the fewer and fewer taxpayers get fed up with paying more and more in taxes. Then, the handout programs and the politicians will lose their cash cow.

Is there a fraud hotline to report fraud for government assistance?
