Wisconsin’s Push to Drug Test Medicaid Recipients Draws Praise, Critics

by Fox News Wisconsin’s push to drug test Medicaid recipients draws praise, critics By Michael Tobin   Critics bash Wisconsin plan to drug test Medicaid applicants Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is jumping back into the center of controversy again, this time with a proposal to drug test people receiving Medicaid benefits. He said he is doing it because Wisconsin has jobs to fill. “Many of them – construction, transportation and definitely healthcare – require people to pass a drug test,” Walker said. “I think most of us believe that public assistance should be more like a trampoline than like a hammock,” Walker said. “Really, for those who are able to work we should enable them to get back in the work force.” Related: amid-trumps-unpopularity-democrats-face-rising-criticism-for-failing-to-invest-more-in-special-elections MISSISSIPPI GOVERNOR SIGNS WELFARE DRUG-TESTING BILL “Drugs can come very cheap and when you’re poor and you’re going through a lot of things in life,” she said, “sadly we want to kinda drown that feeling, we want to numb it.” Related: white-house-formally-backs-plan-to-send-30000-federal-workers-to-private-corporation “Republicans have been on this trajectory of demonizing poor people,” said Wisconsin state Rep. Lisa Subeck, a Democrat. “And that’s all this does and it does it for a lot of money.” John Peacock, who is with the Wisconsin Council on Children and Families, said the proposal would make villains out of drug addicts. “We think it’s a big step backwards for Wisconsin because it approaches drug addiction as a moral failing rather than as a disease,” Peacock said.

Scientists BUILD Black Hole

by Fox News Scientists create ‘molecular black hole’ in laboratory using world’s most powerful x-ray beam The collision of two black holes – a tremendously powerful event detected for the first time ever by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory, or LIGO – is seen in this still image from a computer simulation released in Washington February 11, 2016. Scientists have for the first time detected gravitational waves, ripples in space and time hypothesized by Albert Einstein a century ago, in a landmark discovery announced on Thursday that opens a new window for studying the cosmos.

A single pulse stripped all but a few electrons out of one atom from the inside out. This left a void that started pulling in electrons from the rest of the molecule – like a black hole gobbling a spiralling disk of matter. It’s hoped the breakthrough will lead to advanced ultra-high-res images of viruses and bacteria – and the development of better drugs. Staff scientist Sebastien Boutet, of Stanford University’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, said the X-ray pulses are about a hundred times more...

The Solution to Terrorism is Not Dealing with the

The Solution to Terrorism is Not Dealing with the

Last night, London was hit with yet another heinous terrorist attack as a rented van plowed over pedestrians in the London Bridge area. Three Islamic jihadis exited the van to mercilessly stab victims at a nearby restaurant. As was the case after last week’s attack in Manchester, authorities stressed that citizens go on with their daily lives and not let fear stop them. It seems to me, however, that Europe and America are stuck in an ineffective paradigm of dealing with the symptoms of terrorism after the fact rather than preventing them. How will family members of those savagely killed go on normally after the death of their daughters, sons, wives, husbands, fathers, and mothers? To be sure, an aspirin to keep the fever down is nice, but the proper treatment of an illness may be an antibiotic. Authorities seem to be stuck chasing the rabbit into holes instead of striving to seal the holes. How many more innocent lives will be sacrificed at the altar of globalism as the political leaders continue pressing immigration policies intended to erase our national distinctions How much more innocent blood must soak the soil of Europe and America before leaders understand that their immigration policies and absurd political correctness are providing an umbrella of protection to those who wish to bring down our western national governments? Even with all the British soldiers spread around town after the Manchester massacre, people were still killed and they could do nothing to prevent it.

We must understand that the politically correct ideology of the globalists is the direct cause of these deaths. The blood of the innocent is in their hands....
