|Gingrinch proposes drug testing all who get federal aid. Does that include politicians????|
Here is something from 1996 calling for the House to drug test staff. Then in 1997 the House did a rule change calling for drug testing. All that happened was it got sent to a committee to die. In following years there were bills introduced calling for drug testing of the Hous;, they died in committee also. Ron Paul spoke out against drug testing several times when the matter came up. His argument was that it violated the Fourth Amendment, which would apply to all drug testing. Back about this time I wrote to my CongressCritter at the time, Bart Stupak. This was when he had only been in office for a few terms, before he got corrupted by "The Family" on "C Street". I actually got a response that wasn't the usual form letter bullshit. It said that before they can start drug testing they had to set up procedures on how the testing would be done. At the time the House was run by Newt and his FuckingRepublicans who were all in favor of drug testing everyone else!!
This is an idea whose time is way past due. All you have to do is look at what politicians around the country are doing and one explanation is that they are doing some powerful drugs (can you think of a better explanation???). If minimum wage workers have to piss in a cup to get a job as a greeter at Wally-World, then all elected officials should do likewise. I mean, how much can anyone endanger the public by working as a greeter, and how many millions are affected by what the politicians do??? Who does it make more sense to piss test?? Didn't this all start by saying it was a public safety issue?? If that's the case, go after those that can cause the most damage, and from the looks of things, we should have done this right from the start of the drug testing craze. They should have to do a pre-employment test like most of the rest of us!!
|They always want to fuck with those that can't fight back!!|
Let's pass this on, feel free to repost this and/or add your own ideas. Let's start using all the social media available to us to shame the bastards into doing the right thing!!! Here is a page on facebook that I found.
