Only 49 more states to go!!!!!!!

Hooray for Florida !

I-95 and I-75 will be jammed for the next month or so with druggies and deadbeats heading North out of Florida, because this is the first state in the union to require drug testing to receive welfare!

Hooray for Florida ! In signing the new law, Republican Gov. Rick Scott said, "If Floridians want welfare, they better make sure they are drug-free."

Applicants must pay for the drug test, but are reimbursed if they test drug-free. Applicants who test positive for illicit substances won't be eligible for the funds for a year, or until they undergo treatment. Those who fail a second time will be banned from receiving funds for three years!

Naturally, a few people are crying this is unconstitutional.
How is this unconstitutional? It's a legal requirement that every person applying for a job has to pass drug tests in order to get the job, why not those who receive welfare?

Let's get welfare back to the ones who need it, not to those who won't get a job.

    OK. You want your tax money to go to drug users and you want illegals to vote. Who's the crackpot?

    Conservatives are the independent thinkers. Liberal are zombies that follow whatever the mainstream media feeds to them. Bush lied kids died. Man-made CO2 is the only explanation for this environmental data. Calling Obama a socialist is just a replacement for the "n" word. You will believe anything they tell you. There is no room for independent thought among liberals

    What a sad sad comment that is on our teachers today. You probably believe everything you were told to believe about Reagan too.

    I too lived through the Reagan years. That's how I recognize the lies told by the history books of today. My knowledge is from personal experience not the lies told by liberal media outlets. If you're so informed on Reagan, then tell me what crime he committed in Iran Contra.

    Yes they are. I know what happened in Iran-Conta. I watched the hearings on C-Span. I also read the lies told about what had happened in those hearings in the Newspaper and News-magazines. Recently, I have also read the selectively-edited versions in College texts that misrepresent the affair.
    I don't believe that Reagan was a saint, and I don't agree with any negotiation with terrorists. This is not about portraying Reagan as perfect. This is about the Left revising the events I witnessed with my own eyes.

    So, you believe that Reagan had nothing to do with the end of the Cold War and nothing to do with the dramatic recovery of the U.S. economy by his second year in office.

    Declassified Soviet documents have shown how Reagan's influence helped to end the Cold War. The USSR was under tremendous financial pressure from trying to keep up with Reagan's defense buildup, deployment of missiles in Europe, and his proposed Strategic Defense Initiative. This is fact. Look it up.

    Economy: The numbers tell the story. You can lookup the statistics on your own, but under Reagan the Unemployment Rate went from about 11% to under 6%, the GDP grew, and inflation went down, the value of the U.S. dollar against other major currencies rose by double digits etc etc... To try and say Reagan had no influence on these events is ignorant at best.

    Great. Go on living in your fantasy land. Why would you want to know what's actually going on, when you can eat potato chips and watch MSNBC? Whatever you do, don't investigate these points. It might upset the perfect little world you live in.
  • Rusty 2012/06/22 01:03:31
    Yes.. I agree... if you can come up with the bucks to buy illegal drugs I don't think you have a money problem. The problem is that many people on disability take powerful pain drugs which will show up in a urine test..... The potential is there to clean up the welfare roles but I'm concerned that the cheats will find a way around the test (with the help of lawyers) and the non cheats on legal prescriptions will be hurt.

    I agree, but 49 more states is a long way off.

    They didn't do much in this case, perhaps the ACLU will sue to get people payments for drugs and alcohol.

    I remember the ACLU from the late 1960's, back when they worked FOR the people. If they haven't filed there's no basis.

    How would I steal a vote?

    Likely, lets see if Obama deliberately tried to pull a fast on on the public with health care, the judges will tell us tomorrow.

    And Obamacare is defanged. Can't force states to enlarge medicare, and the threat of defunding states of Medicare funds overruled. Remember, if states don't expand their rolls, Obamacare doesn't happen ;-) Oh, if you don't pay the so called mandate, there's no penalty.

    Sure, I'll bet. They aren't stupid, the fed taking it for 2 years while their taxpayers get stuck with a huge bill every year thereafter? The 26 states that sued don't want it, an there are many more. Socialist "progressive" states like CA and NY might take it, but unless they ALL take it, Obamacare is dead. That's why they used a hammer of taking medicare from an y state that didn't comply with their whim. They lost.

    Occum's razor, 26 states sued and many others agreed with the suit. LOL, umm, no, now the people are even more galvanized to repeal the law entirely. Obamacare has been defanged, use of the commerse clause was overruled. The public has learned it's a TAX, something Obama and posse insisted it wasn't. SCOTUS, look it up ;-)
