Well wait - do you mean Syndicate wars? As that was a direct sequel and it rocked.

If you mean did they ever reboot the series as a FPS? No. That never happened.

JimBob1015: Drug testing welfare recipients is a silly way to fight a war on drugs.

It is a great way, however, to make sure that welfare recipients aren't spending taxpayer money on drugs.


Which is why they were tested for alcoholism and tobacco use too?

Just Another OC Homeless Guy: spentmiles: I am the Lance Armstrong of welfare doping. I haven't worked in almost a decade and yet I have a nice apartment, a high speed internet connection, and all the happy pills that I can wash down with the liquor of my choice. And if it's one thing guys like me are good at figuring out - it's how to game the system. You cycle your intake right and the cheap ass tests they give don't register shiat.

For every one person that actually needs welfare benefits, there are two dozen of guys like me. Just please keep my man in the oval office! I've got a feeling his first initiative on his second term will be to deeply extend benefits. Believe me - the relationship is mutual.

I agree. Until I can find a job, keep those benefits rolling!

/thanks, mr. taxpayer


Actually, I think the guy I responded to was trolling. Perhaps not, though, and if that is the case let me say a few things.

1) I seriously doubt that the ratio is dozens of parasites to one actually needy. Maybe 3:1 or 4:1. The various agencies (at least here in CA) do a moderately decent job of culling the actual professional leeches. For one thing there are way too many needy (most often Hispanic non-English speakers with two or more kids) that soak up the NOT unlimited available money. spentmiles sounds single; I doubt that any intelligent female (or male partner for that matter) would want him. The food stamps, section 8 and other assistance goes to people with kids first.

2) The above statement about Hispanics is not racists (Hispanics aren't a race, anyway). It is simply factual, and I invite any libtard who doubts it to visit both the OC Family Services building in Santa Ana, on Grand Ave and the Social Security office on 1st St. in the Xerox Building and see for yourselves.

3) OTOH, I do know at least one guy, single (gay), who has been scamming the section 8 system for a decade. He pulls in maybe $40,000 a year doing computer systems consulting.

4) In the last year (of being homeless) I've met and now know LOTS of poor people. A few scam a lot; most scam a little; a few are straight arrow. I'd say the ratios are 10:80:10, or the classic Bell curve 80/20 rule. For most, it is a matter of doing what needs to be done to survive. This includes some drug dealing, some fencing, etc.

5) I don't consider myself to be anything like spentmiles. I am getting UI and my wife gets Disability (schizophrenia). I was a professional, an accountant, and made >$80K per year BO (before Obama). I've worked my butt off for 40+ years and I feel entitled. I've been out of work for 5 years now, except for periodic temp work, generally through agencies liked Robert Half. Things were dicey under Bush, but there was a fairly steady stream of temp work, which allowed me to "renew" my UI with new claims when there was no work and the old claim expired. When Obama came in even that gradually dried up. No temp work now for 7 months. Or rather I should say, there IS temp work - but (according to people I know at the agencies) 80-100 applicants available for each gig.

6) But if something does come around, I will jump on it. At 63 I still have at least a decade of productive work ahead of me. But until that happens, yes, let us continue the benefits. Which is why I'm voting for Loser Obama instead of Loser Romney, because I'm worried that Romney will, indeed, start slashing those benefits.

7) In other words, yes, I'm one of that 47%. But not by choice. My situation is a creation of 12 years of wrongheaded government policies, and now I'm unfortunately dependent on government until the economy recovers from, or learns to cope with, all the bullshiat that's been thrown in the gears for the last 12 (and especially 4) years.

GF named my left testicle thundercles: what if we had the CIA infiltrate the cartels and have them lace the drugs with rat poison? then the drug users would kill themselves off.


Yes, because the best solution to a terrible drug problem would be to fix it with an even worse mass-murder problem. Seriously, if you think casual pot smokers should be murdered, you're an evil Nazi psychopath with problems much worse than drug addiction.

It's also a great way to spend more taxpayer money on testing than is saved by taking those using drugs off the welfare rolls...


Not necessarily- some legislatures have the idea that welfare recipients should be forced to pay for their own drug tests.

Mind you, since welfare payments come from governments anyway, the taxpayer is STILL paying for them, albeit in a cruel and dehumanising way.

Seriously, folks, the best way to stop the never-ending War on (non-Corporate) Drugs is to vote for a third-party candidate who isn't beholden to Big Pharma, Big Tobacco, Big Booze, and the damned privatized-prison industry. The only reason third-party candidates have no clout is that none of you drones would ever think of voting for one. If it came down to voting for the Punch in the Face Party or the Sock in the Guts Party, none of you would even consider voting for the Hugs 'n' Kisses Party in your wildest dreams. That's why crap like the WoD never, ever farking ends.

Many of you folks may recall the Simpsons episode where K'ang and Kodos secretly take on the identities of Bob Dole and Bill Clinton. Since they kept offering the same empty-headed platitudes (e.g. "Abortions for some, tiny plastic flags for others"), it took a while for the citizens of Springfield to even catch on that they're actually aliens. And when their true identities were revealed, K'ang replied something like "Yes, we're aliens, but one of us will get elected for President, and when that happens, we will rule the Earth!" Then the pimply-faced kid replied in his squeaky voice, "Yes, but I can vote for a third party!" Kodos replied, "What? And waste your vote?" which pretty much doomed the Earth to alien servitude. At the end, when the human race was enslaved to the aliens and Homer and Marge are dragging a huge rock, Homer says to Marge, "Don't blame me, I voted for the other candidate!"

And that's how I see things in America. You vote for either the Diet Pepsi candidate or the Diet Coke candidate because you're utterly incapable of actually voting for a real third party (or, to be cynical, a true second party). You drones keep falling for the same Good Cop/Bad Cop routine over and over and over and over and over and over again. The spin doctors behind the candidates have things figured out pretty well; they'll tell a candidate to hold a hunting rifle in the next empty-headed sound bite to nudge exactly 3.5% of NRA members towards their candidate, and so forth. Why do you think the last several elections always come down to a 49-51% near tie? They have you drones figured out to several decimal places...

Drug testing only exists to make money, not to actually stop drug abuse in this country. A friend of mine worked for a drug-testing place, and basically it was a pretty rotten job. I've had a few temp jobs that tested for drugs, and that didn't stop me from getting a buzz. Seriously, I had four drug tests over the years and I beat all four of them:

1st: This test occurred during the longest dry spell of my life--a month without pot due to the market drying up back in 2005.

2nd: I abstained for a week before the test, then drank a hell of a lot of water right before the test to dilute any cannabinoids in my system.

3rd: I used somebody else's urine in a small plastic bag near my crotch. The trick is to run the urine under very hot water five minutes before the test to thwart the fact that they check the temperature of urine samples.

4th: I used fake pot for nearly a month before the test and passed with flying colors.

Drug testing did, however, guarantee that most of my co-workers drank heavily. When I went for my final test, even the receptionist stated that drug testing was pointless since alcohol was the most abused drug by a wide margin and there was no test for that. Also, there's a whole shiatload of prescription pills that pack a buzz and aren't screened.

Now that I've more-or-less escaped the corporate Rat Race and am self-employed as an artist, I never get tested for drugs. Hell, nearly all of the well-paid professionals I work with (e.g. museum curators, TV producers) never get tested either. It's always the crappy low-pay jobs like Walmart stock person or some bank-teller position that require drug testing--and encourage employees to drink instead.

/when Florida announced that they were instituting drug testing for welfare recipients, I'll bet Peter Coors got a serious boner...

No, but they'll have a lot less money to buy weapons and telecommunications networks. Or, to put it another way, they LOVE it when people like you keep supporting the never-ending War on Non-Corporate Drugs because it's people like YOU who guarantee that they'll make billions by selling a product with a 10,000% profit margin.


These guys are criminals,


Well, yes. But thanks to your support of the WoD, you're guaranteeing that some illiterate thug makes more money in one drug shipment than you'll make in your lifetime. Again, their worst nightmare is for the black market in drugs to vanish.


you dry up one market in one country, they'll just find another country to supply,


Another country that has the insane idea that they should micro-manage what their citizens put in their bodies and are dumb enough to make themselves vulnerable to the black market in drugs.


another drug to push, or pursue any other endeavor to fit their needs from weapon smuggling to sex-trafficking.


Simple. Legalize or decriminalize all drugs, gambling, prostitution and every other victimless vice out there. I'll bet the extortion and murder-for-hire industries don't make 1/10th of the profit of the illicit drug industry. Besides, drug money helps pay for the weapons needed for murder-for-hire.


just tired of the narrow-minded "solution" of legalization that keeps getting trumpeted here at the first mention of Mexican drug cartels...


As opposed to the even more narrow-minded "solution" of maintaining the goddam status quo despite it being a total, colossal failure for nearly half a century? The "solution" of endlessly throwing billions of dollars of taxpayer money towards a doomed social-engineering project? Do you work for Big Pharma, or are you just another non-thinking tea-bagger?

Diogenes Teufelsdrockh: douche


I'm curious. What make them douchebags? Is it that they are violating statutes written by legislators, so therefore it must be immoral (ie. statutes define morality)? Or is it that they are using substances, in which case, what makes that worse than those who take substances for any reason but have had them prescribed by a government-licensed doctor? Or is it that they ingest substances which have not been prescribed to them, and therefore are medicating in a way that believe is immoral for not having a doctor's note? Are they douchebags because somewhere in the production chain there are bad people? One can say the same about a number of industries. Your own government is dropping bombs on people and I'm guessing that since you apologize for the state's battle against human beings who ingest unsanctioned substances, you also like to pay your taxes. Doesn't it make you a douchebag for supporting something that your government does to harm others? I'm going to have to go with the government-defines-morality principle as the basis for your argument that users of government-prohibited substances are "douchebags." Does might make right?

Since we haven't tried legalization yet, how do you know it won't work? However, we do know for certain that the current WoD is a disastrous failure and has been since Tricky Dicky started it in the early 70s. Besides, legalization would knock out about 90% of the cartels' profits so there wouldn't be much money to finance their other ransom and human-slave efforts.


What might solve the problem; after your 3rd violent drug arrest, you get a date with a rope. And not it 20 years; in 5 minutes.


Do you really think that that's a valid solution? It's hard enough to send a murderer to the injection gurney even in states with the death penalty. Sending somebody to their death for three drug offenses where say, guns are involved, is going to be a lot harder. And sending somebody to the chair in 5 minutes, or even 5 months is a fantasy. Finally, if we start executing people for simply dealing drugs, then the dealers won't have anything to lose by murdering the first cop through their front door. All that further escalation of the WoD will ever accomplish is to speed up the time it takes for people to get it through their thick skulls that the WoD is a dismal failure.


/ I am not advocating drug users be hung en-masse; I am only suggesting a solution to the problem that might actually work


It will fail like the 10,000,000,000,000 other times that politicians spewed out their "get tough on crime" rhetoric. We're already the world's #1 police state--where the hell do we go from there? Nazi Germany?

It's also a great way to spend more taxpayer money on testing than is saved by taking those using drugs off the welfare rolls. Also never figured into the calculation is what do these addicts do when their welfare is cut off? My bet is on something that is of an even greater cost to society.

As far as the article goes, this is why I hate most countries requiring visitors to write down their profession on just about every customs form.

Weaver95: cman: Weaver95: I know! lets drug test MOAR welfare recipients! yeah! that'll show 'em!

In a thread where the subject is about kidnapping and enslavement it is nice to see that the second statement was about attacking the right

Did I blame Republicans? no, I made a disparaging remark about just how ineffective our efforts really are in the war on drugs. one of our big ideas is to drug test people on welfare. how in the hell is THAT going to stop an organization that is willing and able to kidnap entire tech support teams and build a private radio/cell phone system to help them move their product? we've seen drug smugglers building their own homegrown submarines. And our answer? oh, well we'll drug test poor people...because that'll stop drug smugglers, right?

it's like putting a band aid on cancer. As a nation we are so immensely clueless about what to do regarding illegal drug use that I honestly don't know we can even identify all the things we've done wrong, let alone muster the will to do something smart about the problem(s).


The Drug War isn't about prevention, but about profiting and empire-building while pretending to address the problem. If the problem was solved, then whither the future profit? If the TBTF crowd makes big bucks from money laundering but go unpunished, then that should tell you all you need to know about the earnestness of the anti-drug effort.

Um; you do know all illegal drugs were once totally legal. The reason that many were made illegal was the culture of abuse and bad trips.

Number 1 police state? Not even close. I imagine China, North Korea, syria and Iran have us beat.

Politicians aren't "tough on crime"; the Romans were tough on crime and it worked for them for over a thousand years.

iheartscotch: The reason that many were made illegal was the culture of abuse and bad trips.


And the reason prohibition of alcohol was repealed;

Five years of Prohibition have had, at least, this one benign effect: they have completely disposed of all the favorite arguments of the Prohibitionists. None of the great boons and usufructs that were to follow the passage of the Eighteenth Amendment has come to pass. There is not less drunkenness in the Republic, but more. There is not less crime, but more. There is not less insanity, but more. The cost of government is not smaller, but vastly greater. Respect for law has not increased, but diminished.-Henry Louis "H. L." Mencken

Following the imposition of prohibition, reformers "were dismayed to find that child neglect and violence against children actually increased during the Prohibition era.-Rose, Kenneth D. (1996). American Women and the Repeal of Prohibition. New York: New York University Press. pp. 43.

That being said, the whole "MEXICO IS A SHIATHOLE BECAUSE OF TERRIBLE AMERICAN DRUG POLICY!!!" mindset is crap. Mexico is a shiathole because Mexico is a shiathole. At some point, mothers need to tell their sons that being drug mules for the asshole down the road isn't acceptable. Cops need to stop taking bribes. People have to start giving a shiat about the condition of their communities. Otherwise, this will continue regardless of whether or not MJ is a banned substance. Canadians smuggle weed across the border all the time and Vancouver isn't a war zone. Why? Because Canadians have a national sense of decorum and shame, and Canadian families don't need bribery money from cartels to keep their children from starving.

Refuse to be a drug mule or to take a bribe and you or a family member will wind up headless in a ditch. I watched a documentary a while back on a mexican town where the only officials left alive were the ones who took the money. The ones who refused the bribe were all murdered.

/refuse the cartels demands and they will leave you alone. Its that simple!
