    Should our legislators be tested for drug use a few times a month? With reports and articles stating that the Secretary of State, John Boehner, who makes decisions on behalf of the American people is drunk most of the time should Americans be concerned who they voted into office? What about the lie Americans were told about George Bush being sober during his presidency when clearly his drinking was covered up. See http://www.infowars.com/bush-reported-to-be-drinking-heavily/

    There were photos of George Bush in Russia sitting at a table with a drink in front of him. And another photo in China where his body guards were holding him up while Laura Bush walked in front to block the view.

    They claim Bush only recently fell off the wagon due to fear of his father's impending death (George Bush Sr has been seriously ill lately) but the truth is George Bush was never on the wagon, he was always drinking. He was stumbling and bumbling not because he was clumsy. He was drunk. According to the article cited above, Bush was not just drunk on America's soil but internationally as well. While representing America G-20 economic summit in Washington and at the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Lima, Peru. Bush was drunk in front of Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, Japanese Prime Minister Taro 'Aso, Chinese President Hu Jintao, South Korean President Lee Myung-bak, Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, Mexican President Felipe Calderon, Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, all world leaders who had the chance to witness an inebriated Bush both at the G-20 and APEC summits. How embarrassing is that for America? But it's inside knowledge that our legislators are known to frequent White House watering holes.

    No wonder the world is laughing at America and sees us as a joke.

    These are people we voted for to represent America and its people. These are the folks passing laws and making decisions that affect our country. These are folks making life and death decisions. I think its time to give these guys drug tests. What is your take on it? John Boehner.jpeg

    It is well known that John Boehner drinks excessively. http://www.capitolhillblue.com/node/46773



    These legislators impose laws on the people about testing for drugs at work, why shouldn't they be held to the same standards?

    Yes they should be tested randomly. I also think they should have to blow into a Breathalyzer before going into meetings.

    I think they should be tested for the simple fact that they do the same thing but hide behind their status. Only the blind would think they do get drunk, and/ or do drugs. And at times, they even kill, remember a few years back then that one guy's girlfriend came op missing? I know he was happy that 9-11 happen because everybody just forgot about him.

    Peace!
