Americans Want Congress Members To Pee In Cups To Prove They're Not On Drugs

Americans Want Congress Members To Pee In Cups To Prove They're Not On Drugs

“well then Congress can pee in a cup. They get our tax dollars and as we saw this week, they aren't so clean as they cast judgment on entire groups”

murphy girl on Dec 9, 2013 at 03:57:22

“Oh, I agree with you. I was just saying it is not humiliating to pee in a cup. I think anyone who collects taxpayer money, whether they are city, county, state or federal employees should all be drug tested regularly. But also anyone who collects welfare, housing, food stamps or any other public assistance programs should have to do the same.”

“wow..you didn't answer any of my questions. maybe you don't HAVE answers to them? Is it because ONE group gets to make a choice with their conscience but not the rest of us?, but We have a constitution written by men who saw the necessity of the separation of church and state. I have a family full of veterans and serving members. We are morally against unnecessary war yet we still have to pay for them. do some thinking, really.”

“very true now. but I do think back to the 1930s. My parents, relatives talked about what people were reacting to, the Wall st trusts, corruption in banking etc. They KNEW who was to blame. they all believed that if it hadn't been for FDR, we very well could have seen uprisings, both of communists and fascists...it WAS close. it is possible that we could hit bottom again. my father said one time, " we were poor, but we didn't know it because everyone was poor". the days like that are gone, when people don't know so well what the other "haves" are experiencing...tv, internet etc. just my opinion”

“Give your sons a pat on the back for me and if they are in the field of astronomy and space exploration is their thing, then don't stop at any ONE particular goal they had in mind as kids.
I hope your sons aren't as old as Bill or Neil. That would more than likely make you older than me. LOL !!”

“I am really sick of people labeling anyone who wants rational action as " anti gun" I grew up in the mountains, with the family hunters and I used to go plinking with a revolver, hunting rats at the dump. But my family is also full of veterans of a number of wars as well as some still in the service, and they ALL agree that there is no place for weapons of war in neighborhoods. It seems some believe my right to keep a 357 magnum while living alone means there should be no limits on their wishes for weapons. Ironic that this old lady has never seen this kind of division whipped up on gullible people.." That there president is gonna take all our guns" bullshit.”

“Except they build on the basic research govt funds...this is the way it has been all my long life. I remember one year some democrat had a bill saying that drug companies who got their drugs from govt funded research had to charge a reasonable cost ( as they usually speak of the cost of that research as reasons for high prices)...a reasonable bill.

“Wow...really forward thinking. How about just taking the $1.5 billion the oil companies get to have..I don't know how old you are but I remember how the work of the late 50s and 60s in this science advanced out national knowledge AND money. It is sad that one party no longer believes in Science as our economic competitors will smack us down economically with THEIR research. China is doing it NOW with solar and other renewable energy sources...because they DO look forward”

WiseOleMan on Dec 7, 2013 at 17:00:46

“I remember back then as well. But we also were calling it a space race and we wanted to beat everyone to the moon. (and at the time beyond)
I said this before and I will always say it. The moon wasn't intented to be the finishline, it was just the first lap or even just the first few steps in a marathon. You have made me think of something here and I hope no one reading this takes it wrong, but I think all these "Bill Nye" types coming out lately is becasue of that threat that china is trying to land on the moon. Back in the 50's and 60's we looked at the moon as a strategic "higher ground" mentality. I think for most of these current scientist, like Bill, it is a threat to them holding the lead in technology and scientific advancement. If we don't get back in the race soon, the world would be looking at all those scientist from other counties for understanding and yes popularity. His and the others that have touched on this issue as of late, are respected in my book but I wonder if there is a little ego play going on here..”

“Meanwhile 95% of income gains have gone to the 1% , corporate profits rocket squeezing workers! tax loopholes and fraud by them drains treasury. The fact that unlike the past when wages rose with productivity gains, that no longer happens, with those gains going to the top only. This nation is doomed to either a neo- feudal system no longer a democracy...or a violent revolt as the underclass grows with former middle class joining the poor in no options.”
