In Aug. 5 Issue
My son Chanson will soon be packing his duds and heading out to Lexington and the big UK campus. We’re getting his apartment ready and he will soon be moving. We always wondered how we would handle that day and it looks like we will soon find out.
While visiting on campus a few days ago, we noted a program where senior citizens could attend free. So, after some long consideration, we have decided to just move with Chanson and go back to school. We always wanted to get our masters or even our doctorate. We are considering changing our major and going for a new career in nuclear physiques. We are also thinking of going out for either football, cheerleading, or croquet. We can’t wait to tell Chanson we are going to move with him. We are sure he will be thrilled.
We received a letter this week and are very pleased to pass it along to you.
Like most folks in this country, I have a job. I work, they pay me.
I pay my taxes & the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit.
In order to get that paycheck, in my case, I am required to pass a random urine test (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.
So, here is my question: Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check 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 sitting on their BUTT----doing drugs while I work.
Can you imagine how much money each state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check?
I guess we could call the program "URINE OR YOU'RE OUT"!
P.S. Just a thought, all politicians should have to pass a urine test too!

And then there’s this story
While shopping for vacation clothes, my husband and I passed a display of bathing suits. It had been at least ten years and twenty pounds since I had even considered buying a bathing suit, so I sought my husband's advice.
'What do you think?' I asked.. 'Should I get a bikini or an all-in-one?'
'Better get a bikini,' he replied 'You'd never get it all in one.'
He's still in intensive care.
