Message from a Hard Working Kiwi

I received this and just had to share it:

I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the Governmnet distributes my taxes as it sees fit. In order to earn that pay cheque, as I work in the timber industry, I am required to pass a random urine test, with which I have no problem in passing.

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 piss and smoking dope all day.

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

Something has to change in this country... and soon!

No money would be saved, because of the vast beauracracy required to operate such a system.

Not to mention, things have changed in this country, unemployment has come down massively and stayed down while it is hgiher and on the rise in the economies we compare ourselves to, Australia and the US.

None of this isn't to say there isn't a problem with welfare bludgers, because there is, it is just to say that reactionary bullshit like this doesn't solve anything.
