Florida passes bill requiring mandatory drug testing for all welfare recipients!

BRAVO! The politicians finally act in the interest of the taxpayers. Yes if you are on welfare you have to be tested for drugs. The cost of the test comes out of their pocket, if they pass they get reimbursed, if they fail they lose benefits for 6 months. They can at their own expense take a second test, to challenge the results of the first. If the welfare recipient has minor children another adult can file for them to ensure they are fed and cared for. But, benefits to the failing person are not allowed, until they can successfully retest. Interesting in the Florida legislature the vote was divided along party lines, Luckily we have a majority of Republicans

Eliminate Taxes on Businesses

I mean it, completely eliminate taxes on Businesses.

I will tell you why.... even as we speak businesses do not pay any taxes, taxes are calculated into the cost of doing business, and thus are added into the price the consumer pays for those products or services.. That's right they extra money from their customers and transfer that money to the government. That’s right when you tax business you tax the people who buy from them. Raise taxes on Wal-Mart, and Wal-Mart will raise prices.
Since people are the ultimate consumers, people pay all the taxes. There is not a corporation in America that pays taxes, because they pass that burden along, to their customers. When a customer earns their money, it is taxed by the Nation, in many instances the State (41 states have income tax), and in some cases even their local municipalities tax their income. The when a person buys something (in most cases) that consumer pays a local sales tax, as well as a state sales tax.

On top of everything else the consumer also pays the tax burden of the companies they buy from as well as the person who produces the raw materials, the manufacturers, distributors, the shipping companies and even the cross docks of the products they buy. It would be hard to say the least to even calculate how much of every dollar earned and spent goes into government coffers.

As a passing thought, if you tax a company and they lose money, they get those taxes back. So if you don't tax them they don't get any money back, when they lose money.

Theodore Roosevelt on Immigration

"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people. Every immigrant who comes here should be required within five years to learn English or leave the country.”
Theodore Roosevelt 1907
