"Piss Test!"

I received this text the other day from a co-worker...thought I'd share.

"Like a lot of folks in this state, I have a job. I work, they pay me. I pay taxes and the government distributes my taxes as they see fit.

"In order to get that paycheck, I am required to pass a random urine test with to I have no problem.

"That which I do have a problem, is the distribution of my taxes to people who don't have to pass a urine test. Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check because I have to pass one to earn it for them?

"Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet. I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their ass, doing drugs while I work...

"Can you imagine how much money the state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check?

"Pass this along if you agree..."

...Loved the idea, but with times as they are, and with the majority of people's wallets being fairly thin and having no problem sliding into one's back pocket, my only concern would be...just imagine all that piss!

I think this is a good idea. I heard a guy talking on the radio about people who use their cash to buy cigarettes, beer and pot, but use their food stamps to buy groceries. I'm guessing that happens a lot!
