I received one of the best forwards on my cell phone today. I just had to share it. I'm sure I won't need to say anything else after it. And I'm sure probably about 98.9 percent of you will totally feel the same, I know I do. I am a single mother who has always made sure I worked and only took the help I truly needed. "Like most folks in this country, I have a job. I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit. In order to get that paycheck in my case, 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. So, here is my Question: Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check because I have to pass one to earn it for them? Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet. I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their rump doing drugs, while I work. . . Can you imagine how much money each state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check? I guess we could title that program, Urine or You're Out'".

Hello my friend This really sucks, things are not like they use to be when it comes to welfare, they make it much harder to earn that money, people can't just sit on the behinds anymore this is a good thing, I hate when people abuse the system, really sad. I like "Urine or you're Out" too funny. Thanks my friend.
