Florida Drug Users on Welfare Protected Against Illegal Search and Seizure?

A Federal Judge has temporarily banned drug tests for welfare recipients seeking to “cash in” on the backs of taxpayers in Florida on the basis of Constitutional protections against illegal search and seizure.   

Federal Judge Mary Scriven imposed the temporary ban basically because, in her ruling, she said that the court needs time to determine if the law violates the Constitutional ban on unreasonable search and seizure. Is this some kind of perverted joke? I ask this because I just read an article where the TSA is in fact illegally stopping motorists and searching their cars in a new program DHS likes to call VIPR. 2012 GOP Presidential candidate and current Texas Congressman Ron Paul went on the record stating his objections to the latest set of DHS laws rules in an op-ed from tennesseenewspress.com titled, TSA Releases VIPR Venom on Tennessee Highways .


If you thought the “Transportation Security Administration” would limit itself to conducting unconstitutional searches at airports, think again. The agency intends to assert jurisdiction over our nation’s highways, waterways, and railroads as well. TSA launched a new campaign of random checkpoints on Tennessee highways last week, complete with a sinister military-style acronym–VIP(E)R—as a name for the program.

Here[once again] we see a Federal Judge intervening with Florida State law to protect welfare recipients from the [supposedly] illegal search and seizure of a drug test that was enacted simply to ensure the working taxpayers are not funding welfare recipient’s drug habits. Meanwhile, the TSA can fondle citizens private parts at the airport and stop citizens and search their vehicles on any highway in the U.S. with no valid reason.  Ron Paul summed up the new TSA VIPR program pretty well at the end of his op-ed:


Disarming the highways and filling them full of jack-booted thugs demanding to see our papers is no way to make them safer. Instead, it is a great way to expand government surveillance powers and tighten the noose around our liberties. (emphasis mine)


For those of you naive enough to think Florida welfare recipients are not using illegal drugs, I point to the following facts of the past few months when the law was being enforced: Since the law went into effect in mid-July, over 7,000 applicants have taken and passed the drug test, 32 took the test and failed and approximately 1,600 have refused to the test.  Applicants do not have to say why they refused, but their refusal will block them from receiving the government benefits.  If you are caught operating a motor vehicle in most states while under the influence of drugs or alcohol and refuse to take the sobriety test or submit to a blood test, your drivers license is automatically suspended. Of course, the government makes a huge profit in fines and DUI school in order for you to get your license back,( from the actual working class citizens) while the welfare class doesn’t have any earned money to take from them. ( nor are they paying their fair share in taxes)  If a person was in need of real help in the form of a welfare cash payment in Florida, they simply would have no problem proving that the cash would go towards food or shelter and not dope. Unless of course they are already on dope, and can’t hold down a steady job because of it, therefore they demand that other people support them and their habit. This is the very definitive crux of this problem.

The champion of the welfare class, the ACLU started this whole disgusting federal intervention into Florida’s right to drug test welfare recipients by filing the lawsuit in the first place. Isn’t it weird beyond comprehension on how the ACLU can sit by and allow the TSA to unconstitutionally stick their hands down American citizen’s pants at the airport and also approve of the TSA jack-booted thugs use of the VIPR  illegal automobile searches of American citizens simply traveling from one town to another? Actually, it all doesn’t seem too strange when we consider the idea that the ACLU and the DHS and the TSA are obviously doing the Obama administration’s bidding today.

 Here is serious a tip for our readers :  When traveling across state lines or any other time when in your vehicle, be sure to follow all local, state and federal laws about carrying your second amendment allowed guns with you in your car. What better way for the anti-gun Liberal jack-booted thugs from the TSA to start taking away your right to bear arms through the illegal searches being conducted under the new TSA VIPR program.

  1. I’m so glad I found this site (by accident) it gives me a place to return to as a metaphor for how desperate conservatives are…please continue on..Herman Cain…Rick Perry..Michelle Bachmannn…LOL….run ’em all, put together they can’t beat Obama!

    Have you seen the new Koch Birthers..ummm…I mean Koch Brothers funded ad that Herman Cain’s running with the cigarette smoke?

    Don’t look now Republicans, your desperate losers are showing!

    (Hey “Hitman”…ughhh I mean “Redman” go phishing for my IP address, and tell me what you find in Germany…..ha …ha…ha…LOL

  2. Judge Scrivner was 110% correct, here’s the law, read it and weep:

    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

  3. Well “Rob” if you do actually live in Germany, I hope you have a kitchen knife or something to defend yourself when the radicals come to slit German’s throats in the streets. I’m sorry that Europe has become so P*ssfied that it can’t defend itself. Might as well, get yourself a pray rug.

    Conversely, the “crazy conservatives” here clinging to our God, Guns, and Gold will ultimately fair much better that the EU will. We still have our guns, (even though the goal is to disarm us). We will be the last stand, and it will be ugly. The 2nd amendment people will be facing a really hard choice…come out of our sniper position to save our “whiny liberal citizens from the enemy” or letting them use their time honored tactic of speaking kindly, agreeing and denouncing the US…right before they meet the sword!” It will be hard to watch them all beg to get in our houses for food, clothing, safety from the chaos. If they don’t wake up before the sh*t goes down…God be with them..as for me and my family, we will be prepared..

  4. Hey “hitman” ugghhh, I mean “Redman” still slinging the bull, huh?

    Judge Mary Scriven also struck down the Florida Drug law; https://bit.ly/rsf5Rp

    She’s two for two, yea, hold your “guns” at the end of President Obama’s second term, when we have the House and Senate, we’ll be taking them away…

    So please, hold them, we can use the money which we receive when sell them for scrap metal to pay down the debt…

    1. Just keep in mind…

      Hosts don’t need “blood sucking parasites”…”blood sucking parasites need Hosts!” So, no matter what, eventually the welfare entitlement attitude along with the “laziness and ignorance” of the “get something from the 1%” crowd will realize the gravy train has ran out.

      When deciding who to rob and steal from after the free ride is over, I’m sure the lazy good for nothing thugs will prefer the unarmed, petulant, p**syfied liberal masses over self reliant, armed conservatives. So you just keep standing behind the bully hoping he beats you up last.

      I love how the libs are so generous with felons rights and liberties, while shouting from the rooftops to trample on the lives of the honorable citizens. The constitution only means something if it suits your agenda. Perhaps we don’t drug test welfare recipients, we just abolish welfare!!

  5. So Rob and ZOE with no PHD think the taxpayer should dole out welfare cash to drug addicts here. How intelligent of them both.
    ” Desperate” is Liberal sheep ignoring the facts in this article, IF they even read the whole thing.

  6. I don’t know who you are talking to about “Hitman” and the Koch brothers, this appears to be an article about welfare parasites sucking taxpayers cash for their drug habits.” Desperate” would be folks talking about anything other than the facts presented here. Shannon has very valid points.

  7. There are 3 areas of Florida’s drug law that should be struck down, they are:

    1. Anything Rick Scott Says

    2. Anything Rick Scott Does and

    3. ughh…ughhh..”Oops” Yea, you guys are heading to the

    1. Presidential Primaries

    2. Presidential Eleciton

    3. White ..ughhh.. White Horse…ughh…”oops”


    LOL…keep ’em coming “Hitman…..ughh….I mean “Redman”
