The bonuses amount to less than $100 per Hostess employee. How long would that keep the company afloat?
So even though the executives ran the company into the ground, you think they should get their bonuses?

Is there any argument where you do not side with the corporations, executives, the rich?

WAYYYY too fair. As long as Congressional Democrats and Republicans both benefit from the current tax codes, reform will continue to be just a rhetorical imperative.

Sure it did. It has far outgrown its usefulness. Agree, time to move on. Look around us. Enough said.

A federal judge ruled Monday night that the Hobby Lobby craft store chain must offer its 13,000 employees contraceptive coverage without a co-pay, as mandated by Obamacare
Hobby Lobby sued to deny such coverage in September, citing conservative evangelical owner David Greenís personal religious objections to certain types of birth control that fall under Obamacareís contraception mandate. In particular, the company sought to deny its employees coverage for the morning after pill, commonly known as Plan B.
But on Monday night, U.S. District Judge Joe Heaton denied the request in a 28-page ruling, pointing out that religious institutions have already been given exemptions from covering contraception, and that Hobby Lobby does not qualify since it is a private business:
http://thinkprogress.org/
Bam!
Of course, Hobby Lobby COULD go the Papa John's route, and decline to provide insurance coverage at all...but I'm sure there's more publicity to be wrought from David Green's schtick. He'd lose an awful lot of bead-stringing customers if he dumped his employee insurance coverage...

Freedom of religion does not include imposing the tenets of said religion on those who do not accept them.

On the Sunday shows, Republicans said identifying who changed one word to another is a question that demands an answer. As it turns out, the answer is now available.

The intelligence community -- not the White House, State Department or Justice Department -- was responsible for the substantive changes made to the talking points distributed for government officials who spoke publicly about the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, the spokesman for the director of national intelligence said Monday.

The unclassified talking points on Libya, developed several days after the deadly attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, were not substantively changed by any agency outside of the intelligence community, according to the spokesman, Shawn Turner.

The talking point initially pointed to al Qaeda involvement, but officials didn't want to divulge too much in non-classified materials, especially in light of classified sourcing, so the word "extremists" was used. Who made the change? The intelligence community. Why did they make the change? For entirely legitimate reasons related to intelligence and national security.

Why is this scandalous? It's not.

"First, the information about individuals linked to al Qaeda was derived from classified sources," an official told CNN. "Second, when links were so tenuous -- as they still are -- it makes sense to be cautious before pointing fingers so you don't set off a chain of circular and self-reinforcing assumptions. Third, it is important to be careful not to prejudice a criminal investigation in its early stages."

So, are congressional Republicans prepared to finally move on? Apparently, not yet.

http://www.motherjones.com/kevin-drum/2012/11...

[Republicans'] dissatisfaction stems, apparently, from the fact that last week witnesses told them they didn't know who changed the words. But this week, after further investigation, they suddenly do know. That simply makes no sense. It's inexplicable that when they ask people questions and then give them time to investigate, those people return with additional information. Besides, it had to have been that rascally Obama. It just had to have been. After all, we all know that it was critical to his reelection effort that the American public believe it was "extremists" who killed our diplomats, not "terrorists." Why? Because....um, come on, that's just obvious. I don't have to spell it out for you, do I?

This whole affair has Saul Alinsky written all over it.
