The Lockney school board recently instituted mandatory drug tests for 
students and teachers. Refusal to take the drug test is an admission of guilt.

Nonparticipants should be arrested, photographed, fingerprinted and 
subjected to a warrantless search by police. Their crimes should be entered 
as aiding and abetting rebellion, public defiance of political correctness, 
and seditious attempted use of liberty.

The drug war has mutated into a drug virus more deadly than HIV. It attacks 
the brain (speech center) and the spine (disconnecting it from the brain) 
and the eyes (destroying cognition).

The virus thrives on fear and demagoguery. Ordinary people are driven mad 
with fear of witches -- I mean, drugs -- and they develop a psychosis that 
thirsts for blood and urine from teens.

It kills rationality and common sense. Parents will no longer look at, or 
talk to, their teens in order to examine their behavior or general 
condition. And almost to a man, they abdicate responsible parenting and 
promote state school/hospitals as the Final Solution.

Most tellingly, the virus affects the ability of public servants to 
distinguish fact from fiction. Some manifest a paranoid fear that teens are 
wards of the state.

They also assume they have unlimited, final authority. And so they have.
