    Especially regarding any and All public office holders, they're hired by the people and live off the teet of public pay along with handsome benehfits, but also their staffs as well as any government contractor etc. etc. etc., anyone in for the public funds paid by the rest of us, Including those on unemployment before they were, if outright fired and for a good reason, not in 'right to work' then they have to fight, they can't get them checks!!

      in a hospital. I'm not directly on the public dole, working for a not-for-profit corporation. I did not like it, could see some rationale for it, given the nature of my job, and had nothing to hide, so I did it.

      Why can't our legislators also pee in a cup?

      I know who refuses to pee in cups where I work . . . and why.

      Sometimes a .sig is just a .sig

        He's a railroad engineer, in addition to being a state legislator. He says he has to be tested for his job, so why not test his fellow legislators too? The alcohol testing would be very interesting in Ohio. I'm sure Kris Jordan (gets drunk and pushes his wife around) and Jarrod Martin (found passed out on the hood of another legislator's car in a parking garage, and transported to the hospital because he was so drunk security couldn't rouse him; forced to call his parents to pick him up when police were called to a rowdy, drunken bachelor party he was at) were working the back room to keep this off the floor. And Bob Mecklenborg (stopped by police for erratic driving and  found to be over the legal limit, have Viagra in his bloodstream and a woman — probably a stripper — half his age and not his wife in the car with him, on the night of Good Friday while claiming in his official bio to be a super-devout Catholic) is probably heaving a sigh of relief that he was persuaded to resign before this came down the pike.

        Take the "Can't(or)" out of Congress. Support E. Wayne Powell in Va-07.
