    Easy solution.

    Microchip every American citizen so nobody can impersonate anybody else. Then require Blood, Urine, Fatty Tissue, and Hair samples for DNA and drug testing! At around $20,000 per applicant I'm sure we'd break even eventually!

    While I do think think that drug testing should be done for all welfare recipients, the shear logistics of it (as you pointed out) make it nearly impossible and in all probability more expensive in the long run.

    Yeah, that's the scary part-- the tech exists to essentially have it so everyone knows exactly what everyone else is doing all the time to the point where the ideas of the Bill of Rights become superfluous. But hell, that's small price to pay to catch some Welfare people doing drugs (whether they bought them or some friend turned them on or whatever) and the like. It's OK if we only do it a little bit-- today.

    Ben Franklin said that those who would sacrifice freedom for security deserve neither.

    Who said anything about security? I just want to perform "random" drug screens, aka harass every black person who walks through the door. :D

    And for the record I didn't invent the reach-around, I perfected it! :anal:

    But......and this is a big "but", there wasn't a welfare system until the latter part of the thirties. And it sure wasn't intended to be what it is today. Ben and Thomas had no idea we'd be stupid enough ignore their sound advice. One of my favorite
    TJ quotes:
    "Dependence begets subservience and venality, suffocates the germ of virtue, and prepares fit tools for the designs of ambition."
    or:
    " I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them."
