Are you also wanting to legalize drugs?

You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
I'm not shrugging it off by any means. I just don't think drug testing is going to immediately solve the problem. This is a problem that goes much deeper than drug testing. We need better paying jobs for untrained workers. We need to better educate our youth so we don't have as many untrained workers. It's a complicated problem that isn't going to be solved by a simple solution.
Not really going into politics, its more of a personal feeling, I don't think you should receive funding from the government if you can afford drugs.
Does the same apply to corporations? Do corporations deserve tax cuts and subsidies when they make millions and billions a year?
Corporations actually are productive to society.
White trash families who have babies for more money aren't.
It applies to anyone who receives money from the government that engages in illegal drug use.
I was just asking a question. I never said corporations don't deserve tax breaks or subsidies. If a corporation is going to create decent paying jobs with benefits then I'm all for tax breaks or subsidies. Unfortunately, corporations haven't been doing that over the past few years. Record profits haven't been resulting in job creation.
Which workers have to take a urine test to keep their jobs?
Outside of sports, where do they have drug testing for people already employed?
An "incredibly hostile business environment" that is resulting in record profits?
How about that a large number of jobs that used to be done by Americans are now outsourced out in other countries because its so much cheaper? I seriously doubt you have worn any clothes made in America in the last ten years, for instance. That cell phone or Ipod or computer you are using? Not made in America.
Why? Its not because corporations are afraid of hiring people. Its because Americans want a living wage for their work, and other countries can supply those workers for a lot less.
You just spoke the truth. Corporations are having record profits and profit margins because of extremely cheap labor in China and the rest of the countries that slave out their people. I'm all for giving corporation tax cuts if it means moving those jobs back and paying our people decent wages and decent benefits. Unfortunately, Americans are worried about paying a little more for those goods we currently get from China.
When's the last time you've been to an inner-city school? It's far from "fine."

I think if the welfare recipients are tested then politicians should be as well.
This as well, all they receive is government money, even if it is state government.

No one said they are the reason we are going broke. No one even suggested that we stop paying them. Only that if they are on drugs, they shouldn't get money. Try and keep up.
Because no one is federally mandated to support my bad habits. Why should tax payers be federally mandated to pay for those that do drugs? It's really not even a cost savings issue in my mind. It's just what's right and wrong.
Most of them come from broken families where they have no role models in their lives. Inner-city schools just don't have the right resources to give these kids the help they really need. Private schools are successful with these kids by keeping them in school year round and having longer school days. Our public schools need to adapt a similar stance. It's an investment. If we can turn these kids into productive members of our society then it's all worth it. Statistics show that they're likely to end up living off the tax payer's dime in prison.
Yea, NC has a "Workfirst/Foodstamp" program that i actually oversee for 1 particular county. There is no way around having the taxpayers pay for drug screens (people on Food Stamps usually don't have verifiable income).....BUT, if they fail a drug screen, their benefits are cut off (which theoretically saves the taxpayers money).....BUT, you have idiotic social workers who could give a sh!t if someone smokes crack and gets food stamps. Thats where the problems lies (at least in NC). There are certain counties who follow the rules, but most don't.
IF there was a legit system in place it would work, but money is being wasted in NC b/c the system is bullshit. It would work, but rules would have to be mandated under federal/state purgery or other type of laws.
