...I'm still waiting for the link where Hobby Lobby at one time paid for abortifacients.
My edit time has expired on the original post.

I was kindly sent the link. Hobby Lobby did at one time pay for abortifacients but not IUDs. They didn't know they did until it was forced upon them to do so. So they don't have an agenda against Obamacare as would be the case if they objected just to bring the suit.

======================================================
So if the corporation
has rights under the first amendment than those right's are good as long as

they do not interfere with an employee's first amendment right to use the

offending methods if their religion requires.

that will be the next suit who takes presidents?

Employers by law have to pay minimum wage, so having to hand it over doesn't make it any less of a renumeration for your work.
I don't understand what you are saying. Yes they have to pay minimum wage but that is the only thing they have to pay. Wal*Mart gets around Obamacare by only having part time employees. No vacation, no health care, no 401k, no define penton, no stock option. Should I continue? And you make Hobby Lobby out to be the bad guy. BTW I'm still waiting for the link where Hobby Lobby at one time paid for abortifacients.

No they also take matching funds for social security that no business since the

late 40's hasn't figured in to the cost of an employee basically meaning unless

you are self employed and already know you pay ssi twice, and if your company

pay's for health insurance you may be paying half or more of the premium.

this of course does not count the unemployment disability and anything else the

state or the fed want to take out.

Have very little value in figuring out how the universe works.

No one else has either.

====================================
you start with the 3 feet directly around you and go from there.

It may amaze you how far you can get before running into true imponderables.

Philosophy at best will teach you how to think, but in and of itself has no

answers, don't get lost in the glitter.

And that is the crux of the problem. There are in many cases no other providers.So the comsumer gets shafted. Like allways.
I have a choice of 4 cell providers and they all shaft; Verizon and at&t are more expensive but have better coverage, T-Mobile and Sprint less expensive but if I get out of the metropolitan area there is no coverage.

I find it amusing all of this net neutrality talk was started by a false premise that this will be harmful to low bandwidth users. How seriously do you think the FCC will take those writing stating such?

===================================================
In south America many of the cell towers are owned by the drug cartels, they need this to give them encrypted communication as a result I can get a smart phone connect for 1/4 what is is in the US a better connect.

Yes the founding fathers understood this well, that why do you think the

constitution and bill of right were written as shackles meant to slow the growth

of government.

It is we the people that have forgotten this and heaped power on D.C. .

hope it is not to late to get some of it back.

this whole discussion is moot since the first amendment states


"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."


paying particular attention to the part that states "prohibiting the free exercise thereof" you realize that by allowing any exemptions the SCOTUS has acknowledged that the law is prohibiting the free exercise of religion and as such the whole law is unconstitutional.

Unwilling to support crap by buying the book i first went to the webpage,
unlike many books no sample was available.

So looked the reviews and Q&a none of the reviews hed scientific weight.

The Q&A was all philosophy once again no scientific weight.

If this is the kind of source you use no wonder you make so little sense.

Having read many such books while they may have scientific information,the

conjectures drawn from this.

Have very little value in figuring out how the universe works.

Ideally in a capitalist society I would have hundreds of providers

to choose from and the competition would keep them honest.

Having a system that started out with phone and wire only

the move from a central provider too something were a lot of competition can

happen has not accrued.

As long as there are a vary limited number of providers the emily litella line

"I don't care I work for the phone company I don't have to," is all to true.

And there are really only 2 choices 1) constant vigilance, 2)building more paths

For 1) people are going to congress and the fcc and telling them what we think.

For 2) this is more local and maybe harder talk to your city councilman and

insist on more than 1 provider, now since a lot of the local cable companies

are owned by well connected local businessmen you my need your friends and their

friends when you talk to the city council.

Until you can tell comcast and the like, I do not need your service and I am

taking my business elsewhere they can and will keep trying to do this stuff.

comcast may be a lot more reasonable when reminded that eminent domain was used

to let them put up their infrastructure and it can be used to take that

infrastructure and lease it to someone else.

For a consistently warped view on reality posting the winner here is you I.D..

At least from my perspective now i freely admit my view may also be warped.

As to your view that life begins at conception then any woman that have a

fertilized egg not implant would be guilty of at least negligent homicide.

Even though this happens quite regularly or what about all the un viable

fertilized eggs should the woman receive a mandatory sentence for stillbirth.

what about fetus's that though genetic testing are known to have such profound

defects as to no POSSIBILITY of any quality of life if carried to term.

you clearly have not thought out all of the what if's or you would not say what you do.

Here is another what if for you (Holo anencephaly) this is when the fetus is born

with the brain entirely lacking no consciousness possible how is this the same

as a healthy child.

you make blanket statements about what is right or wrong but do not bother to look at the whole picture.

If anyone says they, in private, never said anything derogatory about a person or persons because of race, color, religion, national origin, sex/orientation is a liar. Don't forget these phone conversations were also illegally recorded.

=====================================
In the state of Oklahoma only one party need give permission for recording.

So I do not know what it is like in the other 49 states but in Ok

always be polite.

If I am a landlord and I have been offered a lot of money for one of my

properties more that I could normally dream of getting but the building is full

of tenants with leases that do not want to leave I might suddenly discover that

the buildings water heater complained about for years needs repair now.

requiring the cutoff of all water in the building, if this failed I would then

find the electrical needed work and so on.

So it will be real interesting to see who comes in to buy up and redevelop

Detroit when this is all done.

The why are we here question does have an answer.
OK got it; it happens. You don't have a clue how it happened or what will happen next. You say there is no proof so it cannot be. There is not one shred of proof that ET is out there yet you search for him. Why scoff at those who search for a reason for being?

========================================================
In simplest terms a person is an egg's way of making more eggs.
fail to reproduce and you are out of the game end story.

Well said Gary. Its about time that all governmets from town right up to the states and the US government lived within their budget. If you aint got the cash you aint got the cow.

===============================================
When the founding fathers formed our government it was assumed that at least

enough would take responsibility to govern locally to keep the freedom that they

gave us. Most would be horrified to see our current government.

The sum total of all laws written the ten commandment and a fair chunk of philosophy boil down to play nice with others.

SO PLAY NICE.

The mental health system in this county for long term patient's is virtually non

existent so most long term violent patient's wind up in prison.

Just one of many problems in the US that would be much cheaper in life and

property if taken care of sooner.

Wiggo...

What is YOUR definition of Gun Control?


... Restricted weapons: machine guns, rocket launchers, assault rifles, anti-tank guns, Howitzers, artillery, etc.
Flame-throwers are quite legal. =============

So are the rest with a class 3 licence and as far as I know

only twice have legally owned class 3 weapon been used illegally

in this county and 1 of those was an off duty swat officer.
