The Results of Drug Tests on Welfare Recipients in Florida:


Drug testing only benefits the testing company. Typical on conservatives to waste time and money trying to stop a fake issue.

You have to love how they pander to the “everyone on welfare is a mooch and a druggie” types in order to get public support for such a wasteful program - that did nothing but line the pockets of the owners of drug testing facilities. 


You know what would be really crazy? If the Governor who signed the law that introduced drug screening, founded one of the largest companies in Florida that provides drug screening. 

Fucking Rick Scott.

Tea Party America, ladies and gentlemen. It’s crony capitalism at it’s finest, and the rubes who vote for these shitbags just clap louder and louder while people like Rick Scott fuck them over.

I think I can spot a dinosaur’s face about to eat Chicago. What do you see when you look at the maps?

Swing dancers in Pennsylvania.

Hawks just west of Baltimore. 

Looks like BS to me!

Hey, look! Congressional staffers turn out to be really good at predicting the behavior of stocks that their bosses legislate. Outside Capitol Hill, we might call that “insider trading.” Except US insider trading laws don’t apply to Congress.
Angry yet?

In this week’s issue of Newsweek: Congress is getting rich off Wall Street.

Charts to go with the previous video.
