First, they cut out the prisoners being able to smoke, now this. What's next----sign up sheets to use the bathroom? Now the city will have to hire contractors to do the work that needs to be done, and then they will start harping about how much that is costing them in money. They will probably start taking money out of other funds just to cover it.

Saving pennies often equates in the end to loosing dollars whether its federal state or local government or at your home for that matter. Try to get a view of the big picture candidates and incumbents.

Why does the state or for that matter federal government use the people who are drawing welfare or unemployment checks to perform some of the jobs? A lot of these folks and some on disability also just lay around and drink, stay high and wait on the next check. PUT THEM TO WORK! Let these people earn the money they receive.

Count me in on this idea. If you get a check and are physically capiable of work (and if your not two doctors have to say so to be excluded) put in the hours for the state since the state is paying you to do nothing but procreate, deficate, eat, sleep and watch expanded cable.

I totally agree! I am on Disability ( for physical conditions) that make it impossible for me to work. But there are people who get disability just because they have a "Substance Abuse" problem. It took me 4 years to get mine, but if I had been drunk or high when applying, it would have been 6 months. These people that get welfare, just because they keep having children, and those people that I mentioned above are still capable of working, PUT THEM TO WORK!!!!!! Then maybe they wouldn't need welfare or disability anymore, then then ones that truly need it can get it.
