    something does need to change...the attitude of social serves has gone from getting the child out of the home into a safe haven (since foster care is proving to be not that) to keeping the families together at all costs. In doing this we lose more kids in the system as they are focused on reforming the families instead of getting the kids in a stable home. Kids now get in the foster care system and cannot be adopted out of it. What is wrong with orphanages for kids who parents cant or refuse to take care of them in a nuturing manner. I am sure no one wants kids on aid to dependant children taking drug tests..or going hungry....the problem is with the focus of the social systems, they have failed to do their jobs.

    I'd like to see a few more things added to the list of what those on public assistance have to do like be on mandatory birth control as long as they're on the dole.

    It's coming, Stroll.

    I'm surprised that it hasn't already happened, to be honest.

    I think that's an excellent idea!

    It really irks me to see someone on line at the grocery paying for their food items with food stamps and WIC cards and then pulling a wad of money from their pocket to pay for a couple of cases of beer and carton of ciggies.

    I'm all for welfare for those in need. I just hate the fraud.

    I agree bones, and I agree that anyone that recieves welfare checks should be drug tested.

    I would LOVE to run a big home for these abused and negleted kids. I've always said, and I'll hold true to it, that if I ever had the money to do it, I would.

    Welfare has been abused by many, and helped by many. But it's meant to be to help you until you get back on your feet, not a way of life. Here in the inner city I see it being abused, and I see parents really trying, and some working 2 jobs so they don't have to be on it.


    If you can't stay drug free, no money for you, sorry!

    Should we raise taxes to pay for the drug tests, or just take it out of the welfare check?

    This is why public assistance is such a monster. YOu people want to give out money, then you want to control the people who receive it in every way possible. You want to monitor their urine, you want to monitor their reproduction, you want to "require" them to only spend the money on certain things.

    Either give the money to them or don't. But don't pretend you're trying to help them when really all you're doing is treating them like animals being prepared for slaughter.

    And different jobs have different requirements. If you don't like taking UAs, you can walk. But to insist everyone else have to take UAs because your job requires it is just asinine.

    Where's that welfare money come from? Big Bobo's House of Hair?

    Yeah, I think they'll have plenty of mula left over from the welfare 'pot'(no pun intended) to pay for a pee test.
