Finally! A federal judge that actually respects the bill of rights! This judge should be on the supreme court!

Here is a staggering number: The total America work force is approximately 155 million people and 46.7 million people receive food stamps as of August 2012.

That means 3.3 workers support ever food stamp recipient. Look at your paycheck and your children’s future paychecks. 3.3 workers

rick 'the prick' scott should be drug tested along with the other politicians. They obviously have no respect for our constitution and right of citizens to privacy! The whole thing was a scam so scott's drug testing company would rake in billions.

Your on the right track. Money talks to the Republican (ALEC) member. Interesting is the investments this Republican makes. Election time and we will clean house of the Texas out of state political members in Florida and the give the Senate a good douching.

It should also be noted there's many people who work who also receive food stamps because they don't make enough money.
