    4th goddammned Amendment, Mitt:

    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
    Piss testing is an unreasonable search of your private bodily fluids.

    The INSISTENCE that this is ESSENTIAL is "guilty until proven momentarily innocent", a situation that we can trace right back to Ronald Fucking Reagan and Carlton Turner. They escalated the war on drugs. They created the PISS test. They made it so every single time some workers or hopeful worker or welfare applicant - who ever - pisses in that bottle, republicans earn a kickback. The companies that run these tests are part of the republican establishment. Yeah, a few might be "democrats", doubtlessly Blue Dogs.

    Well WalMart and Home Depot can make you piss whenever they want and for whatever reason: they are corporations and they are NOT BEHOLDEN TO THE CONSTITUTION.

    The State, however, IS and making people piss for government money as part of a government program ain't constitutional. Just isn't because it truly is unreasonable, and there is no real idea what there is hoped to be found because there is no probable cause.

    It's a motherfucking witchhunt.

    And Americans have happily peed in that fucking cup, almost without any protest whatsoever.

    Good citizens.

    What is the #1 withdrawal symptom from not smoking marijuana so you can pass a stupid piss test and get the job you are qualified for?

    Can you guess? It's pretty intense.

    I'm gonna write about it soon.

      Corporations are not beholden to the Constitution? But if corporations are people, they must be held to the Constitution!
