Like it or not it seems the drug screen has become a rite of passage in this age of corporate control.

Congress does not take any annual drug screens that I know of. This may be part of the reason some good legislation gets blocked and some bad legislation gets approved. Certainly, when I take my annual drug test with cohorts and the ones that fail get bounced, it makes my workplace more productive.

Are Congress people more productive outside of the broadly implemented annual drug screen and follow ups such as random drug tests and mandated counseling for those who fail annual drug screens (or termination for those who refuse sobriety at work)?

Is congressional concatenation exempt from the rite of drug screening and should this be tolerated by the people they represent given we're all taking drug screens nowadays?


What kind of penalties should the Surgeon General implement on legislators found committing LUI's (legislation under the influence of drugs and / or alcohol)? I think we've finally got enough government to do something about this alleged problem!

Let's drug screen diplomats and IMF Bank Presidents BEFORE letting them rent a hotel room.

Alice, with the requisite information belief is a function of reason rather than religious dogma.
My certainty is more reasoned assurance than some derivative of faith.

The two cats I share my home with are on the perceptual level; concept-less with instincts. People can lapse into such a pseudo-default non-metaphorical state bereft of the 1st person singular vantage point but human survival requires more historically.

For instance; My ancestral home is the fret board of a guitar, not a patch of contested land with or without oil beneath it. This is simply a cognition, but I'd rather be on the conceptual plane with sensory data employed to  inform this state than on the perceptual level with instinct precluding conceptualization of my condition beyond the plight of my ancestors.

Instinct is for turtles laying eggs and migrating birds getting sucked into jet engines.

As the Amish have done before me. Jurisdiction is how those in power manipulation vast spheres of financing towards ends which one might be in disagreement with. I say, don't lie around in the maw of a Crocodile unless your a baby crocodile. The existential nature of being separate from other adults in body and thought dictates an individual solution hence the individual rights Congress and their corporate solution would obliterate if you accept such emptiness as your identity. I don't.

Our reality could be no other way though…. if you agree that we are fully determined and there is no such thing as contra casual free will.


So you find yourself angry with how things are – and wanting to change – and it seems as though you see a double standard – with you being drug tested and those in power not – and yet they are drunk and you perhaps hold more value and ethics than them…  no justice – but what is justice – when reality could be no other way – I suppose a primal urge in us that assists in our survival….


So how can this primal instinct trick you and how can you identify your need in the situation and be cleaver and make the most of your position?
