DAYTONA OR BUST
I work hard.
And like most people who care about their jobs, I work during my time off because my name is attached to the final result, and I want it to be the best it can be.
So, when I read an opinion piece written by an Oregon guy ticked off over the welfare system, I had to share his logic.
Here's what Leonard Wilson of Riddle had to say:
"I have a job. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as they see
"In order for me to get that paycheck, I have to pass random urine tests, which I have no problem with. What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to those who don't have to pass a urine test. Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check, because I have to pass one to earn it for them?
"I have no problem helping people get back on their feet. I do have a problem with helping them sit on their butt.
"Can you imagine how much money the state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check?"
On that note, I'm going on vacation. I'll be back March 8, but will be posting
random blogs to document my road trip to Florida.
Keep checking back to see what's in store for this Charles Kuralt wanna-be.
