Response to Moonwalk (Reply #30)

Tue Dec 27, 2011, 02:04 PM

38. I agree with your post 100%

I have actually said many of the same things in an article I recently wrote about plans to introduce drug testing for welfare recipients in this upcoming legislative session here in Indiana (along with "right-to-work" ). It's another ploy to get people all fired up about something trivial and are, regrettably, likely to succeed in passing no matter what statistics you throw out there because the thought of even a single drug user getting any kind of public welfare gets people so worked up that they are ready to form a lynch mob to go after them. Anyway, who wouldn't naturally be against something like that? I know I don't like the idea of people using drugs while receiving public benefits, committing fraud, etc. personally but people like us whom don't live a Fox News/hate-radio web of confusion know that such problems are not massive and/or widespread enough to warrant the kind of *solutions* that Republicans always seem to be keen on proposing to "deal" with them.
