    Good point, I don't want my tax money going to people who are just going to spend it on drugs, tobacco and booze instead of school supplies, clothing and healthy food for their numerous offspring. Don't make sense that we pay taxes to support public programs trying to snuff out "substance abuse" but the rest of it goes to supporting these people's habits. Everyone of us is unwittingly and unwillingly supporting grug dealers and users.

    Cangratulations, you just made me really mad, this hadn't really occured to me before.
     
  4. Wow! That is a good idea!

    Got me thinking...I steadily devote my time to further my college education. The more hours/degrees I earn, the higher I will be paid in my next career. Lot of work, but I say it is fair.

    What if welfare checks were based on the last level of public education completed? A 6th grade drop out would get half as much as a person with a diploma. Who is most likely to eventually get a decent job and pay taxes? One who was disciplined enough to at least finish school, of course.

    Just my .02

    Oh shoot now you guys/girls. You know that it takes a village to raise a child. Now you all get out and vote. We need to have the government raise our children and show them how to place a _ _ _ _ um on a cucumber. Now you all should be ashamed that you don't believe that the government knows more about how to raise your child than you or I do. Why should some dope dependent individual be required to take a urine test. He_ _ we know they are dopers. Just my opinion. catfish
