We seem to accept the fact that those who protect and govern us are going to do the right thing when- in too many cases nowadays- it's really the opposite.
The latest case in point is in Kansas- where it seems state politicians want to turn the Sunflower State into a 19th Century theocracy.
The latest is that Kansas state politicians are floating a proposed bill to subject low or no income welfare recipents to "random" drug tests.
That seems fair I guess- if you get taxpayer money to help survive- you should have some sort of accountability- if it's such an overwhelming issue.
However- an informed and thinking person realizes that the politicians themselves- the ones who SPEND taxpayer dollars- are NOT subject to ANY kind of either pre-oath or in-office drug or alcohol tests.
Nor are recipients of corporate welfare- you know- the wealthy "1%" who get tax breaks of their many names and are floated state-issued/backed bonds to build anything larger than a phone booth.
So your Captain is going to support these so-called "random" drug tests for poor state welfare cases ONLY under the following conditions:
- 1) That the state (local AND Federal) politicians themeselves start taking pre-oath and in-office drug and alcohol screens and
- 2) That heads of companies AND their employees that receive tax breaks or any form of government assistance also take drug tests BEFORE such breaks/assistance are approved for them.
What's that Kansas State Representative (and/or) Senator?
Yeah- I didn't THINK you would.....
