    Drug use could lead to blackmail, the standard excuse for testing safety and security workers.

    Well the legislators and the financial guys can seriously reduce safety and security by their decisions and actions.

    Wall Street types have admitted to using drugs, and the collapse of finance shows all the signs of drug use, sober bankers would never, ever risk their business, would they?

    Highway bridge on I-35, the guy who sequestered the repair funds must have been on drugs.

    Publishing i. e. leaking information that compromises the war on terror, when someone leaked the names of covert operatives; again that someone(s) must have been under the influence or open to blackmail??

    But above all, if you expect people in the aviation field to do random drug testing then the legislators should face the same random testing, for the above reasons.

      the law obviously doesn't apply to Republican leaders but just to us commoners and peasants and the poor.  Law makers are special, part of the 'elite' that is annointed by God to pass all laws necessary to keep the poor in check and constantly monitored, and help the rich to get richer 'fairly'--as they are due.

      When life gives you wingnuts, make wingnut butter!

        I'm surprised Mr. Rmoney didn't expound on this.

        The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

        •  Oh, he did. . . I'm sure, somewhere: (0+ / 0-)

          I just have blocked that entire thing from my mind.

          But, if they ARE REALLY concerned with getting people HELP. . . then I have an idea.

          I think it is just AWESOME that the gov just wants to help.  I think they should do this WAY MORE.  

          - Want that big tax cut on capital gains rather than ordinary income?  OK, but we really want to HELP you too, so if you will just pee in this cup, once we make sure you don't need help, you can have that tax cut. .

          - Want that big defense industry contract?  OK, but we really want to HELP you, so if the board of directors and management will just step up and pee in this cup. . .

          - Want to register as a lobbyist in Washington?  OK, but we really want to HELP you, so if you will just. . .

          Anyone who doesn't initially see how this is all bull shit need only look at all the other contexts where this "help" could be used and if they are honest. . . well, nevermind.

          Blessed are the peacemakers, the poor, the meek and the sick. Message to Repug Fundies: "DO you really wonder "what would Jesus do?" I didn't think so.
