Anyone getting any state aid under the age of 65 should be required to work for it. Lots of trash needs picking up and and old people need help in their homes. Lots of non skilled work for the lazy asses to do.

I have no doubt at all that Roy Blunt is an Expert on Opioids!
I'm sure, having met him quite a few times, that his pharmaceutical knowledge is vast!
He was certainly demonstrating intimate familiarity every time I heard him speak.

Read the story in KC Star about a spring training boycott by the free agents. These guys just don't get it. Baseball owners have drawn a line that the MLB Union and the agents representing FA players son't get to decide a players value anymore. The agents are pissed because their percentages are going to bring in less revenue to them, they do not car about the players.
It is a hard lesson to learn when the majority of people make less than 100K and they want over 100 Million to play baseball.
