Diogenes: I've been saying we should drug test members of Congress for years and years now.

They have jobs that directly affect the lives, safety, and welfare of everyone.


...and if they pass the drug test, they should immediately be given a bag of X so that maybe they won't be such goddamn assholes anymore?

[W]e have laws against selling drugs, pushing drugs, using drugs, importing drugs. And the laws are good because we know what happens to people in societies and neighborhoods which become consumed by them. And so if people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up*.

well, as he himself is also the recipient of taxpayer money as his primary income, perhaps he should no longer receive those funds.

Walker: A Republican hypocrite? I find this hard to believe.


Me, too. I heard the report on NPR this morning and I was just gobsmacked when in the second sentence the newsreader mentioned he was a Republican.

"A Republican!" I exclaimed, incredulous. "But - that's the party of Just Say No, Family Values and Law and Order (the principle, not the TV show). How could this poor man have been tricked by the lib'rul media into possessing such a vile substance??"

I'm certain then he'll support drug testing all folks who get government funds. I'm sure that the defense contractors and Congresscritters will be fine with this. Not to mention all those bankers who got bail outs. Just looking out for the public good, right?

Three Crooked Squirrels: I'm simply commenting on the fact that his apology to me reads "I truly farked up, I know I am an alcoholic and I do really stupid things when I drink too much, and I'm ready to make a change."

Again, it may be bullshiat, but not on its face.

Radel apologized Tuesday for his cocaine bust and said he'd seek treatment.

"I struggle with the disease of alcoholism, and this led to an extremely irresponsible choice," he said.


He should have gone full Rob Ford.  "I was so smashed, I don't remember any of it!"

I was sure we'd see the Limbaugh Defense:

"When YOU get busted you're a degenerate drug fiend who'd throw a blind orphan into a tree chipper for a fix and you should be sealed up in the basement of the jail never to see the light for a billion forevers. When I get busted I'm an honest man who made a few mistakes, but I know God has forgiven me, so you should too, unless you want to be against God. Do you? Do you want to be against God?"

The point of drug testing people on food stamps was primarily to shame them and remove what little human dignity they has left in the process.  That's why whenever I give money to a homeless person, I always do it by throwing a fist full of pennies at their face.

First, it is food stamps because you are telling them that they are not responsible enough to feed themselves and their family otherwise, plus you need to remind them that they are likely drug users and that is why they are unemployed.

The idea was never to catch/charge anyone because clearly that didn't happent.  The idea was to kick them while they were down and in that respect it was a complete success.
