Senator from KY, RAND PAUL, a one man RAND-THINK TANK full of BAAAAD IDEAS.
The right wing will always have unconstitutional solutions for progressive solutions. It's just the way of the world. How Rand Paul and Gov. Rick Scott (second article, below,) came up with stuff only some NAZIS smoking some SERIOUS WEED --could have thunk up!
When you get a RECESSION, you get a 'new' welfare society, and you get a lot of weak people surviving, i.e. feeding their faces and their kids' faces. It's true. The disorganized, uneducated, the ostracized do not have to live by the USUAL DARWINIAN rules! But here's the GOOD THING as far as Teabaggers are concerned. When the economy goes into a spin, teabaggers can blame it on THE POOR, on the cost of supporting them and rightwingers can mouth off about hey, let's NOT SUPPORT THEM any longer and score points as heroes. Nobody gets time to think 'hey it was the fascist Resource war to steal Arab Oil, the one that cost 200 billion (I finally got my zeroes straight.) And that's when the RIGHT WING comes out of the SHADOWS and all the teabaggers get to score truculent, succulent POINTS as Senator Rand Paul does, we wonder --- how on earth did HIS FATHER, Congressman RON PAUL an ostensible Liberal Progressive (he's Rep.from Tex --) have a neo nazi squirt like son RAND ? -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rand_Paul
A son who wants to jail protestors at rallies! GENES are truly one of nature's mysteries! A man aims his progeny at the world and gets his wife's family tree genes??? Maybe her demented KKK, NRA uncle? JEEZ LOUISE! NATURE IS INDEED CRUEL!
RAND PAUL proves his right wing, Darwinist thinking when he opens his mouth. " I'm not for profiling people on the color of their skin, or on their religion, but I would take into account where they've been traveling and perhaps, you might have to indirectly take into account whether or not they've been going to radical political speeches by religious leaders. It wouldn't be that they are Islamic. But if someone is attending speeches from someone who is promoting the violent overthrow of our government, that's really an offense that we should be going after --they should be deported or put in prison."

ANOTHER WINNER, Florida GOVERNOR RICK SCOTT MADE A NEW LAW mandating SCREENING those pesky "AID-JUNKIES", you know WELFARE RECIPIENTS.. Mandatory TESTING of their BLOOD FOR any SIGNS OF POT! METH! COFFEE! SUGAR... or maybe just STARVATION! And then what? NO aid, no voting, No skid row missions. NUTTIN!
Republican Logic: Punish Those
Needing a Social Safety Net Most
Obviously the best way to stop all those welfare hand-outs making people rich across the country is to punish the people who need a social safety net the most: HEADLINE" GOVERNOR MC SCROOGE"
Saying it is "unfair for Florida taxpayers to subsidize drug
addiction," Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Tuesday signed legislation
requiring adults applying for welfare assistance to undergo drug
"It's the right thing for taxpayers," Scott said after signing the
measure. "It's the right thing for citizens of this state that need
public assistance. We don't want to waste tax dollars. And also, we want
to give people an incentive to not use drugs."
NOTE: Gov Scott has longtime ties to the HOSPITAL MANAGEMENT
industry which would make BANK with all this blood testing of the POOR!!!
Shaming is not an incentive. It's a disincentive, and it's a totally
ineffective one, at that.
Under the law, which takes effect on July 1, the Florida Department
of Children and Family Services will be required to conduct the drug
tests on adults applying to the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy
Families program. The aid recipients would be responsible for the cost
of the screening, which they would recoup in their assistance if they
qualify. Those who fail the required drug testing may designate another
individual to receive the benefits on behalf of their children.
GANG! It's a DONE DEAL!
Oh, good. That definitely sounds like a fool-proof system that will
never be abused by people who take advantage of addicts at the expense
of their children.
Shortly after the bill was signed, five Democrats from the state's
congressional delegation issued a joint statement attacking the
legislation, one calling it "downright unconstitutional."
"Governor Scott's new drug testing law is not only an affront to
families in need and detrimental to our nation's ongoing economic
recovery, it is downright unconstitutional," said Rep. Alcee Hastings.
"If Governor Scott wants to drug test recipients of TANF benefits, where
does he draw the line? Are families receiving Medicaid, state emergency
relief, or educational grants and loans next?"
Rep. Corrine Brown said the tests "represent an extreme and illegal
invasion of personal privacy."
"Indeed, investigating people when there is probable cause to
suspect they are abusing drugs is one thing," Brown said in the joint
statement. "But these tests amount to strip searching our state's most
vulnerable residents merely because they rely on the government for
financial support during these difficult economic times."
Excellent points. Btw, Reps. Alcee Hastings and Corrine Brown are both
members of the Congressional Black Caucus, who no doubt are keenly aware
of the implicit and effective racism in this bullshit legislation, in a
statein which 38% of black children and 25% of Latino children live in
poverty (versus 12% of white children).
So what is it that could have convinced Governor Scott to break with the
Republican Party's unwavering support of privacy and civil liberties
in order to sign legislation which is anathema to every professed
tenet of personal liberty that his party espouses?
Controversy over the measure was heightened by Scott's past
association with a company he co-founded that operates walk-in urgent
care clinics in Florida and counts drug screening among the services it
provides. Oh. Right.
Someone should test SCOTT's BLOOD FOR LARD! In fact we
should blood test EVERY DAMN POLITICO across the world for
signs of TOO MUCH TESTOSTERONE, too much 'control freak'
attitude and find the GERM of 'cheapness' in there too, or the DNA
for the tight ass personality! Never again should humanity elect that
type as leader. We need PROGRESSIVE leaders ! "Dere are only two
types of people, tight ass and loose ass." from a Yogi Bhajan speech
It is time for sentient citizens to do something, not stand by and do nothing.
When these nazis appear, their new racial profiling laws, it is time to phone
up the talk shows, write the editors of major dailies and protest!
