Whining the war on drugs

Time to stop having disability payments and unemployment dollars go to the corner drug dealers. A check from the government should require mandatory truly random drug screening, or else the govnerment is just financing the continued drug use and exacerbating the inability and disinclination to work.

Benjamin Franklin, a much wiser man than I, said that for poverty to be lessened, people must be made a little uncomfortable in their poverty. We are the only nation on earth where politicians get re-elected for institutionalizing it (except maybe Greece).


Instead of the government turning an impotent, blind eye to its own subsidizing of the drug use of America’s disabled and unable who also end up being preyed upon by the criminals in our society while also subsidizing the cartels and the drug growing terrorists (not to mention fattening the pockets of George Soros with his South American drug farms), why not cut out the middle man.

If Uncle Sugar is really so all-fired concerned with the care and well-being of the folks that it is bankrolling and ok with their drug habit, then the govenment should be supplying their drugs as well. This would ensure that they were getting a quality product at a dispensible controllable rate of use, and that they were not being ripped off and beaten up or killed by low-lifes. As a bonus it would cut the vast profits out of the hide of the drug gangs and organized crime, and the new kids on the block, the jihadists.

The $40 billion dollar a year war on drugs could be wound way down since the profits would dry up. Cheaper for the tax-payer. Cheaper for the government. Much easier for the lives of the disabled and unemployed on the dole. We could even get by with a lot less government.
