Am I playing with fire by talking about pee?

(the story is that a construction worker in Alberta wrote this)

I work, they pay me.

I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit.

In order to earn that pay cheque, I work on a rig site for a Fort Mac construction project.

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.

Shouldn’t one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare cheque 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 sit on their arse drinking beer and smoking dope.

Could you imagine how much money the provinces would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance cheque?

    Perhaps we could start a petition to send to our local MP’s.

    [G.R. I am not a big fan of petitions. Would rather write individual letters. Postage is free. 10,000 letters arriving might get noticed more than a 200 page petition delivered all at once.]
