    Drug Test Kids Before They Can Inherit From Parents

    http://dailycaller.com/2015/03/18/de...their-parents/

    Democratic Rep. Linda Sanchez offered a baffling defense of the death tax Wednesday during a hearing examining the sometimes unbearable burden it places on family farms and businesses.

    People receiving food stamps have to pass drug tests or meet work requirements to receive taxpayer dollars, Sanchez reasoned, so it’s only fair that those “lucky” enough to inherit wealth should have to do something to earn it or, in this case, pay a tax.

    “What work requirements are there to inherit up to $10 million tax free?” she asked a witness, rhetorically.

    “Why is that [a single mother] should be drug tested, which is an unrelated requirement to receive food assistance, to make sure that her family has enough to eat,” she asked. “And people who are lucky enough to inherit millions of dollars are literally required to do nothing to get the federal tax benefit with their inheritance?”

    Sanchez acknowledged that Americans should value hard work, but bemoaned the “paradox” that occurs when they want to work hard so they can accumulate wealth to live off of in retirement and pass on to their children.

    “We don’t believe in an aristocracy, or that it’s a good societal thing for dynasties to hoard their wealth and leave the rest to fight over the crumbs,” she said. “That’s just not how this country was founded.”

    “But we have a paradox here in this country, where we think you should work hard to get where you are … but by the same token, everyone wants to make enough money to where they can retire and not have to work,” she continued. “And they want to preserve increasingly larger and larger chunks of their wealth.”

    ...
    What the $#@! is wrong with this womans brain? Seriously? So kids fail a drug test, and who gets the money, her? The Govt? Cui Bono? Who benefits from that? Certainly not society. Anyone with more than two dimes to rub together will leave this country if we end up with laws like that. And more importantly, the rich, filthy rich, and 0.001% will probably not have any tolerance for this as they are probably the biggest drug users as compared to the occasionall puff puff of a pot smoker... So please, by all means, tear this woman and her assinine idea to shreds.

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintain an
    Honest Money System , which frees the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, is the single largest contributing factor to the World's current Economic Crisis.

    I am a libertarian. I am advocating everyone enjoy maximum freedom on both personal and economic issues as long as they do not bring violence unto others.

    It would seem that they aren't stealing enough from innocent people whose grandchildren are caught with contraband through their 'confiscate anything that might have been bought with drug dealing profits' looting scheme.

    Or, at least, like any mafia boss, they think they aren't stealing enough from the innocent.

    'We endorse the idea of voluntarism; self-responsibility: Family, friends, and churches to solve problems, rather than saying that some monolithic government is going to make you take care of yourself and be a better person. It's a preposterous notion: It never worked, it never will. The government can't make you a better person; it can't make you follow good habits.' - Ron Paul 1988

    Perhaps she wants drug tests (random) on representatives of the people?

    Someone should let her know that it'd be very easy for her to set up her own trust that says when, how and where her kids get her money.

    As for my money and my kids....its none of your damn business.

    Why aren't these Fascists thrown out of office in court for violating their Oaths of office to 'uphold the constitution' ?

    Title 5, Section 3331 of the United States Code. It reads: “I, AB, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and DEFEND the CONSTITUTION of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true FAITH AND ALLEGIANCE to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. SO HELP ME GOD.”

    The New America >>>>> PRESUMPTION OF GUILT ....

    Also 99% of adults in America today are guilty of several felonies under the 1000s of new laws.
    With the help of NSA and FCC, supporters of the US Constitution will be targeted charged and disappeared.

    An extension of that is a rationalization by turning those who are actually innocent into perceived guilty. Drug users are actually innocent. But using a rationalization to perceive the innocent as guilty, theft no longer is percieved as a crime.

    Next problem is this ideology opens a door to everything else other than Drugs. That person is a Thougth Criminal, therefore they do not have any Right (as if that Right is granted by us, switch the application of terms of Rights and Permissions, Rights can NOT be granted) to Inheritance. Confiscation through the Rationalization by Criminalization is an Ego Defense Mechanism that validates Theft in the minds of those that do the confiscating, and that is a Mental Illness of which most of our so called "Leaders" suffer from.

    This Statist, elitist attitude of "what's yours is ours unless we let you have it" pisses me right off. This kind of thing is why it's apt to liken the State to the mafia.

    I'd much rather see anybody running for public office be required to prove they've tripped on psychedelics 25 times before they could be considered fit.

    That'd eliminate a whole lot of BS right up front.
