Piss tests and taxes

  1. Great idea in my opinion.

    Like a lot of folks in this country, I have a job. I work, they pay me. I pay my 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, which I have no problem with. What I do have a problem with 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 sit on their ass. Could you imagine how much money the government would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check? Someone would probably say that would be discrimination.
  2. don't fall for the class warfare diversion. your taxes don't go anywhere but in the bankers wallets. in fact... you dont even have any money.....you have debt. there is no money.... all a scam till people wake up. go watch this:


    FACT: all tax revenue collected from the american public does not even service the debt. you've been had.
  3. fhl


    A real market in money, which we currently have, is infinitely better than letting lawmakers create their own money to fund their boondogle programs.

    If there is not an interest cost, there is no way to determine what should be funded. EVERYTHING WOULD BE FUNDED.

    Before you reply with the typical, "you just don't understand", please tell me how legislators would determine what spending programs to create if they created their own money to pay for it and effectively paid no interest. If you come up with any other answer than "there would be nothing to prohibit them from creating a program for everything their constituents want, because there would be no cost", you would have to step to the back of the line and rethink your answer.
  4. so allow a foreign private bank to steal our countries wealth unchecked. no audits ever??? thats brilliant !!!! so when the current economy collapses what do we do then?
  5. The taxes are hurting my ass too. But I disagree on the piss issue. Just because your private life is being regulated doesn't mean everyone eles should be also. There arn't too many people on social security or medicare who could pass a piss test with all the drugs they're on. And if they put coffee and beer on the list I couldn't pass a piss test either and with this government beer might be on the piss test too someday.
