Question by : Is meth really that bad?
I just watched a documentary about meth, and it makes it sound like an impossibly addictive substance.

Like, you try it once and you are hooked for life.

I know a long time ago there was a huge campaign to convince peoole that marijuana was this awful, destructive drug, just like they describe meth today.

Is it really that bad, or is this just another scare campaign?

Why Are People Lumping Unemployment Compensation Into “welfare?”?

Question by Josh L: Why are people lumping unemployment compensation into “welfare?”?
So I’m reading Yahoo articles about drug testing for welfare recipients. Great Idea I’m thinking. Then they start talking about receipients of Unemployment compensation. Last I checked Unemployment was an insurance program regulated by the state. Employers pay into it and my wages are reduced accordingly. How does that equate to welfare?
Unemployment is self sufficient 95% of the time. Just because employers pay into it means nothing. The fact that they have to pay into it reduces MY wages. All together that means I paid for my unemployment, no one else. I could collect unemployment for the next three years and still only come up even with what has been paid in for me the past 18 years. That is why it is not welfare.
