    The Federal Court Tells Florida’s Governor Scott To Go Pee In His Own Cup.....

    The Federal Court Tells Florida’s Governor Scott To Go Pee In His Own Cup. Law Found Unconstitutional

    Florida and Missouri have passed into law, bills that require recipients of welfare to submit to blood, urine or hair sample tests in order to claim their checks. Thirty-six states have bills pending and many Republican dominated state houses are eager to test those that are “living off the generosity of the real taxpayers.” I’ve been told that as the taxpayers, we are, in effect, their employers and as such, demanding drug tests should be no different than those demanded by many employers in the “real work force.” Or so goes the reasoning for these tests. And so goes thousands of posts and comments on websites by conservative supporters with mini-celebrations announcing the states that have passed these testing requirements: “Two down, 48 to go.” Florida won the race for passing the first Welfare Recipients Pee in a Cup law and then became the first to face a challenge on the constitutionality of it.
    These bills are aimed directly at the poor, so it is singling out a class of people for peeing into cups. No bankers, no contractors who have Federal contracts, no corporations that receive Federal subsidies, or anybody else who sucks on the government's teat, is included. Only the poor, who receive welfare.

    You know, I am not against this law. As soon as it applies to the banksters and corporate CEO's, as well as the poor, I will be for it. It will be constitutional then.

    Hey, I'm all for that. Monthly drug tests for every American. Those found with illicit substances in their body to be deported immediately, after forfeitting all property and their citizenship.

    No welfare for people who own drug testing companies and give kickbacks to politicians.

    I read this part...

    ...taxpayers, we are, in effect, their employers and as such, demanding drug tests should be no different than those demanded by many employers in the “real work force.”
    ...and damned near fell out of my seat!

    Who the hell do these politicians think pay their salaries? These GOP politicians must think that tax dollars only go toward entitlement programs. Gees...such narrow thinking!

    I think policicians should be the very first ones to get the drug tests.

    I think everyone who lives on taxpayer money should be drug tested, it doesn't matter how high or low on the salary ladder they are. It's the same way in the military, it should be the same for them.

    If one believes this...

    ...taxpayers, we are, in effect, their employers and as such, demanding drug tests should be no different than those demanded by many employers in the “real work force.”
    ...then it should be logical that this should follow...

    Why? What purpose would that serve other than wasting taxpayer money on drug testing?

    This is the typical bait and switch tactic used by the GOP all over America. Target the poor, make it seem like they are such a huge source of economic drain, and then go for the throat. I seem to recall that no corporate CEOs had to pee into a cup when they received multi trillion dollar bailouts from taxpayers. It's the corporate and banking sectors that have us in this economic mess, not people on welfare.

    Rather than wasting it on drug addicts?
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
