  • Drug & Breathalyzer Tests for Congress

    If Prez Trump want to drain the swamp swiftly, just implement spot drug tests and pass a breathalyzer in order to enter state capitols and Capitol Hill.

    Apparently, there is a lot of boozing going on....

    Well, there is the pesky business of the Bill of Rights getting in the way.

    Not to mention a huge mass of case law.
    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

      Bill of Rights doesn't prohibit drug testing or alcohol testing, which is grounds for dismissal anywhere in the real world.

      There is no "right" to drink or drug while on the job. Never has been.

          There is a problem with who administers these tests. If Congress polices its own, no real difference will be made. Who will make a Judge pee in a bottle? The Executive Branch has its own foibles. There are no outside agencies that can determine who gets tested and when.

          Those industries that employ drug testing never seem to make management and higher ups test.

            Not in all cases Pruitt, the company I worked for before my retirement required random drug testing, that included management from the VP on down to the office staff, I kid you not!

                  The mind boggles. Once internal agencies get the new powers Bannon surely wants, an hours waterboarding ought to do it, Judge or no Judge. Bejesus now, you wouldn't even need a bottle...

                        Sounds good to me! I get randoms with the Navy. I also get them when I'm using my CDL.

                          Do you guys really think that the congress critters will ever enact a rule or law against themselves???

                          Really? I got a gold claim to sell you if you do. Totally legit...
