Show-Me More Push Back Against Po'folk Welfare Drug Testing Crackdown

Newspaper Columnist Lewis Diuguid offers perspective on this bi-state crackdown of another sort: Drug testing of welfare recipients needs to go

Money line:

"States like Missouri are spending a bundle just to try to nab a few drug offenders. The courts hopefully will set a more accountable course for taxpayers."

There's no arguing with the cost analysis and the real story might be a great sense of public exhaustion with the never-ending drug war. You decide . . .

keep looking for excuses to cut off aid for the poor, assholes. you're not gonna find any except for the displaced greed of the billionaires who have poisoned your hearts with their little radio shows and blogs.

This is a "throwaway" article by Mr. DoBad. It's short, primarily factual, offers little to no perspective nor opinion. The reader assumes Mr. DoBad is still on holiday vacation, and submitted this weak blurb to count towards his quota.

"Officials in MO and KS need to among those watching the outcome of a FL legal case"....ok, but WHY do they need to be watching?

"The KC Star reports that states like MO are spending a bundle just to try to nab a few drug offenders." Brilliant insight by Mr. DoBad....NOT!!!!! And I love the way he cites his own employer when writing "the KC Star reports.." Aside from the issue of drug testing welfare recipients, don't federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies SPEND A BUNDLE just to try to nab a few drug offenders?

Another weak, limp, ineffective attempt at journalism.
