I don’t generally forward on chain emails, let alone post them on my site, but I really like this one.


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 cheque, I work on a rig for a drilling contractor.
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 cheque because I have to pass one to earn it for them?

Please understand that 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 ass drinking beer and smoking dope.



Could you imagine how much money the government would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a welfare cheque?

    Classic comment. I agree that there are some deserving of a hand up. I think its reasonable to expect a little accountability in a jar also.

    If the bludgers werent getting pissed or stoned…they’d have more time to look for a job.

    Yeh, I agree lot’s of these guys on benefits just piss it all against the wall or out it up in smoke – then go back looking for more.

    It really makes me mad!
