Once again, the class-warfare villains of the Florida Legislature have excluded themselves from scrutiny in their attack on public-sector employees. The legislators---who are actually the highest expression of "public employees"---are not, themselves, required to submit to this travesty to The Bill of Rights, i.e., the 4th Amendment. So-they-say, it would be unconstitutional to include themselves. What gall! What temerity! THEY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUES? Only when their privacy and dignity is involved, apparently.

Uh-oh! It sure smells like more welfare for corporations and the rich is on the horizon. No matter what our GOP Super Majority state government does to address this issue, it is virtually certain to leave wealthy Floridians harmless.

If state legislators want to drug test state workers, they should include themselves---as they are the ultimate definition of State of Florida employees. Right? If they are so keen on this unwarranted (pun intended, unfortunately) "taking of rights," they should be first in line to participate in this travesty.

Just who wrote this bill? Big Sugar? Clean Coal? The Koch brothers? Steve Southerland certainly did not author the bill, as he is incapable of writing a cogent paragraph. Rep. Southerland is barely middle-class, asset-wise, but he's apparently cashing in sooner rather than later. Follow his rise in wealth, folks, and you'll be able to identify the sources of his corruption. Where have you gone, Alan Boyd? Florida turns its lonely eyes to you.

More tax giveaways for the wealthy with absolutely no requirement of job creation. Where will the money come from to pay for these corporate freebies? Why reducing government programs that benefit the other 99% of Floridians, of course. Yes, more class-warfare against the poor and middle-class of Florida.

First, Governor Scott sabotages efforts to create a database to catch drug addicts (users) from doctor shopping for extra, illegal prescriptions to feed their crime-causing addictions. Now, the governor wants to go after unscrupulous physicians and pharmacists (suppliers) who facilitate many, many purchases of illegal amounts of drugs. Why go after the supplier, only? Creating tools to apprehend both suppliers and users would be a much more effective law enforcement strategy, don't you agree? Which begs the question: Just who is the governor trying to protect? Someone like famous Floridian Rush Limbaugh, perhaps? Governor Scott claims the doctor shopping database would be an invasion of privacy. Privacy of criminals? The governor has no qualms about requiring testing those who are unemployed, seek public assistance, or are state workers, though. Just who's privacy is Governor Scott trying to protect? Why is Governor Scott trying to cripple law enforcements efforts?
