September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

(ie, the infrastructure is very bad here b/c for many years, they were grossly underspent on. 1st Tim 6:10, the god of materialism has its roots firmly in the West) And remember once upon a time ago when shacking up b/w straight couples drew shock awe?

Florida Judge Says Welfare Recipients Have More Rights Than Employed Americans

The state of Florida recently passed a new law requiring anyone receiving government assistance including welfare, must pass a drug test before receiving the benefits.

Since the law went into effect in mid-July, over 7,000 applicants have taken and passed the drug test, 32 took the test and failed and approximately 1,600 have refused to the test.  Applicants do not have to say why they refused, but their refusal will block them from receiving the government benefits.

Each applicant has to pay $25 to $35 to take the test.  If they pass the test, the state will reimburse them.  If they fail, they tests fees are forfeited and they lose them along with the benefits for a period of one year, unless they pass a second test.  If they fail a second drug test, they become ineligible for assistance for three years.

Not surprisingly, the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit against the new legislation claiming that it was unconstitutional and violated the rights of those receiving government benefits.  They filed the suit on behalf of a single father and Navy veteran who is trying to complete his college education, but refused to take the test.

On Monday, federal judge Mary Scriven issued a temporary block on the Florida law.  In her ruling, she said that the court needs time to determine if the law violates the Constitutional ban on unreasonable search and seizure.

I wonder if the ACLU or Judge Scriven have given any consideration to the thousands of American’s that are required to take a drug test to get a job and be subject to random tests to maintain their jobs.  I know people who have had to pass a drug test just work in a dirty warehouse.  If they are injured by any kind of accident, the first thing the company does is require them to take a drug test before seeking treatment.

One person I know was struck on the back of the shoulder by a heavy piece of merchandise that fell off a shelf about twenty feet above his head.  Witnesses said he was just walking past on his way to lunch, but the management still insisted he immediately took a drug test.  Where was the ACLU in this case?

Why is it legal and constitutionally okay for employees to be forced to take drug tests in order to earn the wages and pay the taxes used to provide the benefits when it may not be constitutional to insist on a drug test for those wishing to receive the benefits?
