People wonder why the system is so messed up and how these people remain on assistance all these years-and in a lot of cases nowadays, since they were children-it`s because these social workers do such a nice job of keeping them in the system by any means they can find (usually medical, psychological, or other physically disabiling problems). Just as doctors are to blame for the prescription drug problem in this area, social workers are responsible for the system abuse. Makes me sick.
Amen I don't get help b/c I make 150 to much even though I"m raising 3 boys alone. I tried to get help when my husband walked out, the social worker was like well you make to much money, heres what you need to do if you want to get help, quit your job for a month, resign up in 2 weeks, you'll get tanf, medicaid food stamps, daycare for after school..after about a month you can go back to work part time...I didn't do it I started couponing and picked up some online work but THAT is what is wrong with the system.

Go ahead and vote for this money spending, debt making president. Do you know that he has acquired a debt that is more than the other 43 presidents before him? But oh wait that right wing President Bush put us into so much debt. The man had to go to war with Afghanistan after our World Trade Centers were hit by two planes. You can get a welfare check for being over weight!!! Get your fat ass out of the chair you are sitting in and do a little exercise and get a job. Hey drug addicts, stop doing drugs and work a little bit. Who in the hell are they to stay at home and do drugs and draw a check from the government. Yes, I am a Republican and in no way disagree with government assistance if you are someone who really needs it. If you want to be a drug addict you shouldn't be able to draw a check and should live out on the streets. I am 23 years old and I may have to work until I die because these dope heads and lazy ass people are using up our social security. Socialism, which this President is socialist, leads into Communism. Which on paper looks great but does not work and the people of that country suffer their whole lives. So take your liberal praise and learn something. Also, I do believe big business should get tax cuts. They hire employees, pay their salaries and in a lot of cases give them medical insurance. Do you know that only 1% of the poor actually pay taxes in the United States? The main reason for that is because they are receiving a check from the Federal and State governments.

Well if my civics serve me right congress actually spends the money through legislation so there is lie #1
Well if bush was really serious about afganistan why did he an cheany stop taking bin laden as a threat. Obama did something about that and is pulling out of their now. Lie #2 debunked
If the dope heads are on social security, they have paid something into so it is an entitlement meaning they can draw a check. Actually social security is in good shape if the government doesn't give it to the wall street banks by privatizing. Last I read it is good through 2032.lie # 3 debunked
Actually most of our allies are socialist and communism is still shrinking and not growing. And as a liberal I can say that Obama has moved more to the right than more what real liberals want.Lie #4 debunked
How come there is a list of corporations that paid less tax than you? At 23 I would think that you should not be paying more taxes than rich folks but hey if you want to this is America dude vote that way. I however do not mind paying my fair share as long As mitt pays the same rate I do.
The war in Iraq could have paid for a lot of things to help Americans instead of the trillions waisted there.And I think now most of you conservitives say Pakistan is bad, so Bush maybe attacked the wrong place? Wow you all sure left Obama a mess!!

hey dude thanks enjoyed talking to you!

Wake up folks. Drug testing for public assistance WILL NOT change a thing. Most, not all, but most, that get food stamps, welfare, disability, etc. also get medicaid. When they get medicaid you can bet they are spending alot of time at the doctor's office because their "nerves are bad" or "their back is killing them". Therefore my friends they are getting nerve pills and pain bills which means even if they are drug tested they are going to have a prescription for it which means nothing will happen to their benefits. I am against the drug testing ONLY because that will be more of my tax dollars from my hard earned paycheck spent on these bloodsuckers (money to pay for the tests, someone to give the tests and someone to process the testing.) Now don't get me wrong - I know people have problems and need help from time to time. I realize there are people who do have disabilities. BUT - it makes me sick when I am at work feeling like crap from my own health conditions and a 25 year old sits across from my desk telling me she is "disabled" because her nerves are bad!!! And wants my sympathy as she tells me about losing her kids??? And can't understand why she lost her kids despite the fact that she has been arrested for posession, etc. P-U-L-E-Z-E! I just want to say "you think you have bad nerves? Try working all day, maintaining your home, taking care of your husband and kid and watching your paycheck shrink more and more from the taxes you are paying for people like you to sit across from me and tell me about their bad nerves - now that will give you bad nerves". The welfare system and disability system was not set up for what it has become. It's gone too far. So _ I'm against the drug testing - these people get enough of my money spent on them.

Yes, absolutly. If I have to pass a drug test to work and pay taxes to support them, then they should have to pass a drug test to get what I worked for.

Your company does not care if you do drugs, you are required to drug test for insurance reasons. But hey, if you want to pay for testing these people, by all means, go ahead. Oh, and you can pay to take care of the kids that can't be fed now because their parents lost benefits for failing a drug test and the state had to take them away. By the way, Florida did this and lost money rather than save money, so I guess the taxpayers will make that up, too.

So, make up your mind GUY Mann Dood, you proclaim to be against drugs, and off of them on the big stone board, yet you are on the appy board proclaiming you want them legalized and you complain when you dont get tickets and traffic stops yet you do not want people to be tested for drugs, but you complain no one gets arrested for drugs...and then you were on the norton board bragging how you use to get girls drunk to have your way with them...wow, you are quite the catch aren't you Guy?
I know Guy Mann Dood based on his other comments all over Topix; for those of you who haven't met Guy Mann Dood yet let me tell you he is STUPID, so you may not want to base your opinion of someone based on any of his recommendations.
How stupid is Guy Mann Dood you ask? Let me tell you, and you won't believe this, but its true; Guy Mann Dood is so stupid that he gets on here and complains about NOT getting tickets at traffic stops. He then calls NOT getting a ticket HARRASMENT.
I know, unbeliveable. If anyone knows his real name and address, please post it on here so that we can all start billing him for the tickets we will be getting. I don't see anyone getting a warning anymore, the police would not want anyone to think they are being harrassed for NOT getting a ticket, so now we have the illustrious Guy Mann Dood to thank.
By the way Guy Mann Dood, I have to ask you, have you figured out yet what is real harrassment?
I never said I had my way with anyone after I got them drunk. Marijuana should be legalized, and most other drugs should be decriminalized, like the working model in Portugal. It is possible to be against people making meth! I know, it blows your mind, but there it is.:)

Reasons to test or not:

1. The tests cost money. Multiply $8-$12 by every aid recipient.

2. Testing costs money. The person that collects the sample must be paid.

3. Interpretation of the results cost money for every single screen.

4. Tests can be defeated by adulterants, meaning that users can continue to use.

5. Tests are not always valid. That means that some non-users get penalized and some users go undetected.

6. Kicking people off the 'draw' who test positive for drugs sounds good. Does taking food stamps away from the kids, pregnant moms or disabled sound good? Just because a parent uses doesn't mean the family doesn't need aid. Why penalize non-using innocents when they are not to blame.

7. Every form of entitlement has a risk of abuse. Nothing will ever fix that except a full discontinuance of that program.

8. Some people will continue to use no matter what you do. Kick'em off Medicaid for using? They'll just go the ER for free, and that drives up our healthcare costs too.

It seems that two themes are present in this thread; one is testing aid recipients and the other is whether people truly deserve the aid. I'd love a system where public aid recipients were all truly in need and didn't spend what money they had or were given for drugs. Probably isn't gonna happen. Don't waste more money by trying to correct a broken system.

On the Norton board you bragged about getting a certain Joyce drunk after her dental surgery with the intent to take advantage of her and "hit that thing" in your own words...now you remember it as you didn't, but I bet if the police go find her and talk to her, especially since you claim to be so well off now, I bet she remembers it differently...I bet she remembers you takiong advantage of her and I bet she sues you in a civil suit after the police prosecute you for the criminal suit for date rape as well as prosecuting you for soliciting prostitution and drug dealing which you "confessed" to under the topic free and fun things to do in wise county.

Like to see the whole program stopped. Too many people say they are unable to work but can hunt, fish,attend sporting events, and do what ever else thay want. To me if you are disabled you are bed ridden and unable to get around without assistance. Granted there are a few that rate it, but for the most part it is a waste of money that allows the lazy to remain lazy. You can always tell who they are and it makes me sick. I feel no pity for none of them, and can't stand to look at them. I do feel sorry for their kids because more than likley they will turn out to be trash like their parents, and a burden on society.
As for the drug testing, I'm all for it. There should be no warning of when testing will be done. I also believe that they should loose their check if they smoke or drink. If you are in such bad health and can't work and need financial help from the state, then you shouldn't be spending money on beer and cigarettes.

All I would like to add is that it is a Crying shame that most people will pass the drug test, and are passing drug tests, b/c of LOW LIFE SLIME SUCKING SCUM called Trip's Trinkets, along with any other participating supplier of synthetic marijuana...I can tell you my parents go their each and every day and spen $25-$35 dollard per day!! I have had a job since I was 15 years old, and I support my little brother and my little sister, ME, I have turned then in countless times...the stuff they buy in coeburn at Trip's Trinkets has them way more out of it than the real marijuana, and it cost 5 times as much and they WILL NOT fail a test b/c it is perfectly "legal"!!! this is where it needs to be addressed. I turned on the news and TN is out on the streets in front of these places protesting it, these are the ones bringing in 10's og thousands of dollars a month, hell they are puttin dope deals out of a job, wake up and see what is under our eyes
