Anyone who receives public funds should be drug tested....

if poor people are required to be drug tested to receive the pittance called welfare, than public officials who receive more than a pittance and are able to direct public funds should be drug tested as an even higher priority: each pay period would be appropriate commensurate with the amount of money they are receiving from the public and the moneys that they are able to influence.

Another state is looking to make drug testing a condition of welfare...which is what led to this rant

4. on average each congress person has over 40 staff...

I'd also test the staff because they are also being paid with tax dollars

5. Many of we lowly GS fed workers are tested

in order to finalize the hiring process so I think that all elected officials should be too.

8. The start wars group is in my proposal

I'm afraid the crash the economy ones were in private business...
aided by lax regulators
aided by lax rating agencies
aided by quants who failed the first principle of quantitative analysis
aided by securitization of assets
aided by explosion of derivatives

17. Yup. Steroids and speed.

But really, any illegal drug. If they're busting heads for it, they can't do it.

13. Every single CEO ought to be drug tested

Especially the banksters and hedge fund managers. It's a known fact that Wall Street is rife with coke and other drugs.

Cops should all be required to take random hair drug tests. At least 1-2 per year.
