New Federal Program Suggestion

Received as an email from a friend in construction. Thought that some the group could identify with it. No Snopes article, spent the CO2 looking, Maybe will spend the rest of the day on Google. Today's high is 13F. The walk at lunch was brutal.

Subject: Fw: Urine TestUrine Test -- This guy has a point!!!

This was written by a construction worker in Fort McMurray .. Read on . . .

I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes, and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit. In order to earn that pay check, I work on a rig site for a Fort McMurray construction project. At any time I am required to pass a random urine test, with which I have no problem.

HOWEVER, 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?

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 rear, drinking beer and smoking dope.

Could you imagine how much money this country would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check? If you agree, please pass this along, or simply delete if you don't.

Hope you will pass it along though, because something has to change in this country, and soon!
