Hello! This will be a rather quick post. I would just like to say Happy Fourth of July, and point out that the Fourth is one of those days wherein we celebrate all the people who have fought, bled and died for our freedoms--and that means civil rights. This day has become a real joke in modern America, where a nation of frightened crybabies have given up every last one of their rights, rights hard-won with the blood of freedom-loving martyrs, in the hopes that their government and corporate lords can keep them safe. A nation where a majority of stupid putrid cowards submit to strip searches and groping in the airports and piss in a cup, not just for the "privilege" of eating but the "privilege" of slaving like an animal for a wage not even sufficient for basic survival, all because they think that such submission to the established powers will keep them safe from "the bad guys". A nation that has turned it's back on our Founding Fathers' actual visions for this country, great men who knew the fact that those who are willing to sacrifice liberty for security deserve and will have neither. A nation of cowards and right-wing authoritarians who would rather suckle at a security theater blanket than face reality head on.
What I'm saying is that if you still support the Failed Drug War and the drug testing culture, if you are one of those useful idiots who cheers a system wherein every person must either drop their pants and submissively urinate for their boss and/or government or starve to death, if you are one of those stupid putrid cowards who thinks that our country needs more authoritarianism and more people being strip searched in airports and everywhere else....
Well, if you are one of those uninformed and benighted individuals, you have no right to celebrate the Fourth of July because you have taken the wonderful gift our Founders and many others fought and died to obtain for you and spit it straight in their face. You have taken the freedoms that others have faced danger and death to give you and have given them right back to the oppressors like a coward, because those oppressors have given you an empty and undeliverable promise to keep you safe. You are what is wrong with this country, and for you to celebrate any holiday that honors people who have died for our freedoms is the rankest hypocrisy. You should be ashamed of yourself for selling out such important freedoms, and doubly ashamed of pretending to honor the people throughout history who sacrificed their lives for those freedoms.
Let me tell you a little something about facing reality head-on: To paraphrase Westley, no one can ever guarantee your safety, no matter how many civil rights or crucial freedoms you cast aside like garbage. Anyone who tells you different is selling something.
About this blog
Drug testing is an ineffective, unreliable, and inexcusably invasive form of security theater forced on the American people based on deliberately skewed data, public ignorance, and moral panic, and it continues operating on those frauds to this day, mostly because those of us who are aware of the facts must live in fear of being targeted as addicts. This blog is intended to raise public awareness of the real facts about drug testing that the testing companies don't want you to know, and to provide some tools to the public by which they can raise awareness while maintaining anonymity. I will also be accepting guest posts, if anyone has a story about drug testing injustices they would like to get out anonymously, or if anyone just has something to say against drug testing in general.
