Urine test for benefits

Additional Information

The Urine test (This was written by a rig
worker in the North Sea - What he says makes a lot of sense!)

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 for a drilling contractor.
I am required to
pass a random urine test for drugs and alcohol, 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 benefits cheque because I have
to pass one to earn it for them?

Please understand that 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 backside drinking beer and smoking dope.

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