I wish they could just realize that they have every right to NOT use birth control themselves, and that if they have a problem selling it, they should take the 'PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY' to work for a pharmacy which doesn't offer it for sale.
Should a Jewish check-out person at the grocery store be allowed to refuse to sell pork products and shellfish?
Same exact thing.
Maybe we should ask the Muslim taxi drivers who won't pick up people who have been drinking or even have alcohol on them. Who won't pick up people with dogs.

Don't expect to hear more about an Obamacare surcharge from Denny's franchisee John Metz.

Denny's chief executive John Miller privately reached out to Metz to express his "disappointment" with the Florida franchisee's controversial statements about Obamacare, which sparked a wave of backlash for the national restaurant chain over the past few days. Metz released a statement Monday night expressing "regret" over his statements.

"We recognize his right to speak on issues, but registered our disappointment that his comments have been interpreted as the company’s position," Miller said in an email to The Huffington Post.
Some Denny's franchisees have since dealt with angry customers, calls for a boycott and declining sales. A spokeswoman for Metz said he will not conduct more interviews.

Power to the People!!

A Republican had an accident and needed a brain transplant, The doctor told his family brains are very expensive and you will have to pay for the costs yourselves. How much does a brain cost, asked the family?
For a Republican brain $500,000 dollars.
For a Democrat brain $200,000 dollars.
All the Republicans in the family nodded because they thought they understood.
But the one democrat family member was unsatisfied and asked, Why the difference between Republican and Democrat brains?
Standard pricing practice said the doctor. The Democrat brains have to be marked down because they've actually been used.

If Homer were an executive at Hostess, there wouldn't be any bankruptcy process. Most likely company run by short-sighted middle-aged pasty white Republicans, the reason we have seen many big companies go belly up. They were probably more concerned with getting their bonuses and making as much money as possible to set themselves up and to hell with the company, they'll walk away just fine.

Imagine I am a pharmacist, and you waddle in with your prescription for viagra and I say, "it's against my religion to fill this prescription"?
or
you waddle in with your prescription for insulin, and I say "It's not my problem that you have abused your body and have diabetes, I refuse to fill this"
or
You waddle in, writhing in pain, with your prescription for painkillers, and I say "it's not my problem that you're in pain, it's against my religion to fill this"
Then I would just find another pharmacy, having no right to demand that you do something against your principles.

Nah, I'm sticking to the Repubs because I believe that the real action is in the primaries and that's were my votes count most.

A (D) is my district might as well be an (I) or even a convicted felon because there is no one for them to vote for in the local, state and even the national house and senate races.

This year I only cast a single (R) vote, for John Mica, a career US house moderate who is on a couple of important committees.

Obviously there are many Repubs out there who think like I do and can't stomach the lying, loudmouthed, POS right wing slugs.

Eh?
