No, I am voting for our locally grown idiots in Raleigh. Rob Ford is on drugs that impairs his judgement. Our boys in Raleigh are sober. When you are sober and stupid at the same time....That's got to be a #1 vote.

"Hawaii has a big homeless problem. The state Department of Human Services tried a different approach earlier this year, with an offer to buy one-way tickets to the mainland for homeless people from out of state. But the plan was scrapped in August, deeming it too costly.

In 2012, five states accounted for nearly half of the United States homeless population, led by California (20.7 percent), New York (11 percent) and Florida (8.7 percent), according to according to the National Alliance to End Homelessness. But on a per capita basis, Hawaii is second only to the nation's Capitol, with a rate of 45.4 homeless people per 10,000." Other than homeless, what could these states possibly have in common? Democrat solution, "one way ticket". They gotta do something, soon they will have one more unemployed resident.

How about that guy Trey Radel, newly elected,(R)Florida, busted in DC for buying 3oz of cocaine from an undercover agent. The admitted alcoholic only got one year probation. I believe he was the one who wanted drug testing for food stamp recipients. He said he will take a leave of absence and donate his salary to charity. Lol. What we the people should demand is random drug testing for ALL our elected officials.

Neoconazis want drug testing for the poor but not for themselves. In Fl. the state had to pay for the test if a food stamp recipient tested clean. It was discovered that state legislators take more drugs than food stamp recipients . The law cost the state many millions of dollars more than druggies eliminated would have received. Johnson declared war on poverty. Republikans have declared war on the poor.

Fake Employment Numbers and more economic lies The Government Is Telling us. A whistleblower that has come forward, said census employees have been faking and manipulating U.S. employment numbers for obama. They said that this manipulation was a significant reason for why the official unemployment rate dipped sharply just before the last presidential election. This is how communist minded people work and they will continue to destroy America.

The republikan solution to homelessness is more tax breaks for the rich, more bonus for bankers, elimination of estate taxes, lowering capital gains taxes and increasing sales taxes on the poor to make up the difference.

ONE (1) census bureau employee, Julius Buckmon, made up numbers for people he didn't talk to in order to make it LOOK like he was working and doing his job instead of goofing off. He did this for Julius Buckmon . Now we need to find Julius Buckmon and make him pay back the money he received for the fake reports. If he even did this for 100 persons, its effect on the reported jobless numbers would only be 0.000076%. You should sign up for remedial math. Then you would not be deceived so easily into believing the BS that the sky is falling and your power meter is spying on you and commies are hiding behind every tree and Obama is in charge of spending an---- the rest of the republican BS.

So Allen, you think addiction to drugs or alcohol is funny. I'd be mighty shocked to learn that you have not ONE relative with an addiction. Instead of making fun of people with drug and alcohol addictions, we should be helping them get help for their problems. Did you think it was funny that senator Ted Kennedy was a raging alcoholic for many years of his service as a senator. Do you think it's funny that that another of the Kennedy men, a congressman, a couple years back was arrested for DWI because he supposedly took his Ambien before he decided to drive home. What they needed was for someone to stop enabling them and help them get help for their problem. There's also Republicans as well that have battled addiction. Addiction doesn't attack by political party or social class.

I personally think anyone elected or receiving public assistance of any kind need to be drug tested. They all need help, not ridicule.

Typical Democrat can't get the facts correct. THREE OUNCES, give me a break. "About 10 p.m. on Oct 29, Radel met a confidential source and an undercover law enforcement officer at a Washington restaurant, prosecutors said. At the restaurant, Radel told the two that he had cocaine back at his apartment and said they could go back and use some, according to testimony.

They declined the offer to share coke with Radel, but the undercover officer said he could sell 3.5 grams to Radel, prosecutors said. Outside the restaurant, Radel gave the undercover $260, and then inside a car, the undercover gave Radel the cocaine, according to prosecutors.

When Radel stepped outside of the car, federal authorities approached him. He dropped the bag of cocaine on the street. Radel admitted to authorities that he bought cocaine. Ultimately, he and authorities went back to his apartment, where Radel retrieved another vial of cocaine and gave it to authorities, they told the court.

"What did you believe you were purchasing?" the judge asked Radel.

"A drug. Cocaine. I plead guilty," the congressman replied." At least he was honest and confessed and is willing to pay the penalty. Shall I say Wrangle, Jackson, etc..

Exactly what is the connection between public assistance and drugs?
State legislators take more drugs than the persons on public assistance . We should first drug and alcohol test senators and representatives in the state and federal government. They are the problem.

Did you not read the portion of the post where I said elected officials should be drug tested. The connection between elected officials, and those on public assistance is the fact they are spending taxpayer dollars for their drugs. Surely you could connect the dots on that one.

All congressmen convicted of purchasing illegal drugs should be made to resign immediately. That should be the law. Members of Both parties...not just Radel. Although sad, alcohol is sold freely in our society and you cannot convict a man or woman for being an alcoholic, unless he/she breaks a serious law like Patrick Kennedy did. Then, he/she needs to made to resign.

OK. I understand. I was thinking it doesn't make sense to drug test people who are on public assistance unless it saves money,. It actually costs the taxpayers more to do the drug testing than it saves by eliminating drug users from the assistance roles.
You are saying that it is worth the extra costs to prevent drug use. You may be right for moral as well as financial reasons, especially if we can keep the legislators sober.. Sometimes I have a tendency to only look at bottom line costs.

Big picture, TSF. Look at the big picture. Drug testing used to cost about $55.00 for the five major street drugs. Do the math, Mr. Wizard and again, big picture.

Hear, hear agreed. Back in July I bought a new used car, after living within my means and driving the same car for over 11 years. I took several thousand dollars cash to my bank for a down payment. They agreed to finance the remainder. After all the red tape and a few clicks of keys the deal was done. Now I go to the tag office and with several hundred dollars cash, paid for tax, title and tag. Okay I'm legal and good for at least a year right? Wrong. In October I get a bill from the county tax collector for my car. So I called the tax office and ask, "What is the difference between the tax paid in the tag office and what I'm being billed for now?" He said, "What you are being billed for now is property tax. What you were billed for in July was a one time state road and highway usage tax." Where the hell does my state income tax go? Does a portion of it not go to build and repair the state roads and highways? Why the hell should I have to pay again to drive on something that my tax dollars are already paying for. So this is a one time every time you buy a car tax. Whether I own one car or ten, I can only drive one at a time. WTF?
