The more significant hypocrisy is from the government that holds drug use a crime, yet gives money to addicts in the form of various welfare benefits with no due diligence. What do they do with the money? Hmmm..... Apparently a real brain teaser for libruls.
Ultimate hypocrisy are the librul dopes right here on BDC that have no problem with government giving benefits without a drug test - a matter of policy - versus the individual failure of a wingnut.
Here's a brain teaser for you... if drug use is a crime, why aren't those who go to detox for substance abuse sent to jail? If it's a crime, why is it drug abuse is recognized by the AMA as a disease? Are there also tests for alcohol abuse as well?
Also, what are you on?
I'm not sure ofthe particulars with this guy, but if he was picked up in possession, then he shoudl at least have a trial?
Or do you prefer he gets the the Patches Kennedy treatment? you know, a ride home and a pat on the head.
Just so you know, regarding Con. Kennedy, he had been prescribed the legal medication Ambien.
I believe you are referring to the night he got up, dressed, and drove to the Capital at 3am thinking he had to be at work. He was by himself and hit a gate. The Capital police found him in his car in a disoriented state and escorted him home.
Incidents like this and worse are known side effects of Ambien.
The obvious difference with freshman Congressman Trey Radel is he was busted for possession of an ILLEGAL drug...cocaine.
Radel denied it was his. The police went to his home. At Radel's home there was yet another vial of cocaine.
