Bravo to Louisiana for doing this... it should already be law in all 50 states. Can't tell you how many welfare recipients I deal with on a daily basis who are abusing the system.

I sound like a guy who pretty regularly passes by the housing projects only to see fairly new Cadillacs, Lexus's and Mercedes parked out front.  There's not all that many professions that provide enough under the table income for that kind of hardware.  Dealing and hooking are about it....

Short term, high risk loans.

I know you are trying to say he sounds racist. Only problem with that is what he said is totally true. I've seen it myself. Cars worth $50,000+ sitting in the projects or in front of a house worth half the car's value.

Another thing I see all the time is illegal aliens at Wal Mart dividing their items into two stacks when they check out. One stack is food which is paid for with the govt. Debit card, the other stack is clothes, electronins and a other items. When it comes time to pay for thes items, out comes a wad od $20's about the same thickness as a coke can. And that's not something that I've only seen once or twice. It's something I see virtually everytime I'm in there.

Geaux Louisiana. Now maybe the rest of the US picks up on this.

Don't know about take but probably deal.  Its mighty odd to drive by the projects and see better cars than what I drive parked out front....

Never remember the 22nd of November,

The rest of the season still gives good reason
but yesterday should always be forgot.

It is setting a dangerous precedent. While I don't hate it and like the spirit of the law, where does it end? Should we drug test kids getting scholarships and government loans? What about all college kids going to public schools? Cause a lot of those kids aren't minorities, so some might cry racism. What about people catching an unemployment check? What about people getting kind of tax credits? What about state and federal employees? Where does it end?

Welfare reform is needed, but this isn't it. This is a law that makes White People feel better while not addressing the real problem. I doubt it even catches a sizable amount of folks

I fail to see what laws about mandating drug testing has to do with Caucasions. (?)
Drugs are taken by all races.

If you are going to be on the public dime, sacrifice your drug use. Otherwise, you shouldn't get it.

It's about civil liberties. It's about presuming a person to be innocence and not guilty. You start demanding that people piss in a cup without having a shred of proof that says they did something wrong and you're starting on a very slippery slope.


Most of you hate welfare because you believe people stay on it forever and never try to get off of it, yes? Well, do you really think this will help that? This doesn't help the big picture. It just helps people not on welfare feel better about it.

You're making this a race issue and it isn't one.
