Florida Governor Rick Scott orders drug testing all state workers

http://www.miamiherald.com/2011/03/2…ing-order.html

I guess it is not enough to insinuate that anyone receiving state aid is some kind of druggie that should be tested. Rick Scott now wants all state workers to submit to at least 4 drug tests each year. I guess it doesn’t matter that blanket drug testing by employers unless there is some sort of safety issue involved with the job has already been shown to be unconstitutional. We can add this to the list of unconstitutional provisions being promoted by the Republican class of 2010.

So now the state, which is supposedly in a fiscal crisis that demands huge budget cuts, can somehow afford arbitrary testing of nearly 100,000 Floridians every 3 months at a cost of tens of millions each year.

Whatever happened to the whole "We are for small, limited government" thing?

PS.. Scott’s wife also owns significant shares in the company that would likely be involved in performing these tests. Conflict of interest much?

congressman Issa in trouble?

I know its a liberal blog so it will be immediatly discredited by som ehere but it doesnt change things

It looks like congressman Issa got almost a million dollars in earmarks to improve a road that a building he owns is on. he actually requested more than 2m but it wasnt all approved

This from someone who once said an earmark is tantamount to a bribe

How much is too much? There is another drug that will cost tax payers $120,000 for each user.

I guess the liberals think that everybody is entitled to everything.

Bill Kristol Lauds Obama as ‘Born-Again Neocon’

Bill Kristol declares Obama ‘a born-again neo-con’ days after consulting with him on Libya policy

It’s not an endorsement Barack Obama probably expected — or wanted — but Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol gave the president high marks for his recent foreign policy gestures.

In his “You’ve come a long way, baby” post Monday night, Kristol praised Obama for his address to the American people about the action he took against Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi. On Wednesday’s “Red Eye” on the Fox News Channel, Kristol took things a step further and declared Obama “a born-again neo-con.”

Host Greg Gutfeld asked Kristol how he felt about Obama coming to him for help (reportedly the president had met with him and others prior to his Monday night address).

“He didn’t come to me for help, of course,” Kristol said. “I’m not going to acknowledge that. He came to me to make sure I was supporting his sound policies. Of course, since his sound policies are more like the policies people like me have been advocating for quite a while, I’m happy to support them. He’s a born-again neo-con.” Attachment 200441

Obamas secret authorization to arm rebels. Why? It’s a humanitarian effort.

http://abcnews.go.com/m/story?id=13259028

What could armed rebels do supporting a no fly zone?

Should Islam lose it’s religion tag?

Should Islam lose its status as a religion?

This seems to be under discussion.

Thoughts?

Green Energy Scams and the White House

In this new report from ABC news, it looks like the Obama administration has been playing around once again with taxpayer money, with payoffs in the form of "Green job creation" going to big campaign contributors.

Just one more to add to an increasing pile of scams, or is this a game changer?
