Urine Tests

From an email I received:


Like a lot of folks in this state, I have a job. I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit. In order to get that paycheck, I am required to pass a random urine test with which I have no problem. 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 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 or simply delete if you don't. Hope you all will pass it along, though . . . Something has to change in this country -- and soon!!!!!!!

I guess we could title that program, 'Urine or You're Out'. Just a thought.

Mom (1929-2008)

My Mom passed away a few days ago. I have been meaning to write about it but just have had no time for writing.

I would be negligent if I did not thank my surrogate sister, Melody, for all her help prior to and after Mom's passing.

I will write more about Mom here in the very near future.
