    Is this true? I think it's a brilliant idea. Or maybe put a time limit on it? 3? 5? 10? 20 years?

    I think drug testing how much coke Wall Street had up it's nose when it sent the country into an economic tailspin is also an excellent idea. Those that test positive should be jailed for their drug crimes. If you can't get them for being nefarious fuckers, give them jail time for their drug habits.

    There's a war on drugs, alas, no war on being a greedy unpatriotic bastard with no morals.

    If true, be interesting to see what % fail the test. Bet it's high, no pun intended.

    Given that most of the people on welfare are children, my guess is the percentage of people who benefit from welfare that are taking drugs is relatively low.

    I think it's a bad idea that will mostly appeal to people who object to welfare for idealogical reasons.

    I think that's a good thing, you ever been to the welfare office? Their are mostly two types of people, illegal Mexicans or some black dude in expensive cloths on a cell phone along with a white chick trying to get food stamps.

    amazing how people are willing to blame anyone but themselves. The economy fell because we as a people have let ourselves become corrupted and full of greed. The idea that one particular group of people was solely repsonsible is ridiculous.

    The Federal Government is as much, if not moreso responsible for this economic downturn. Fanny Mae and Freedie Mac are arms of that government. How about we drug test our politicians and the countless bueauracrats in the system as well? I mean we all know they have countless amounts of pornography on their computers and they dont do jack squat of what they were hired for. Would it be a stretch to presume that there might be some major drug issues as well?

    One person on welfare, regardless of their race, is one person too many.

    All people being paid from govt funds should be drug tested if any of them are.
