Lets simplify this. if you own a business you think it's ok to dictate morality and religious beliefs to your employees? The establishment for or against religion.
I have to admit to jumping over about a hundred posts but has anyone mentioned the "EACH Act" passed by the House which would, basically, provide a religious exemptions to anyone who claims they have a religious objection to the ACA whether or not they attend any church? I can't believe the House is still wasting taxpayer time and money on such ludicrous attempts to destroy the ACA. It borders on pathological.

All a person seeking an exemption would have to do is "include a sworn statement in their tax return explaining their objection to health insurance." If they seek medical attention, they lose their exemption. How is that possibly enforceable?

Let's check in on the gun control nuts (over-the-top)

Piers Morgan ranted his way through his final good-byes on the last night of his cancelled show. He was finally honest and admitted he only wanted the government to have guns.

Leland Lee (D-CA) big proponent for anti-gun laws. Apparently legal guns interfered with his gun running with gangster Shrimp Boy. Both were arrested by the FBI. Lee was running his own Fast and Furious.

this has absolutely nothing to do with the employees. yes, they can do what they want.

the employer does not get to flaunt Us law because of their religious cult beliefs, nor do they get to push those beliefs on others...

You have proof of a lie, right? If not then that makes you the liar again and again. Allow me to point out some more of your twofaced hypocrisy. You get mad when anyone says things that you deem personal, but you feel it's ok for you to do far worse to them. I mentioned a couple years ago that I took care of my youngest son for 9 years prior to him passing on from cancer, you have belittled me and made fun of that many times, you also started the perverted crap. I find you to be a despicable not very bright human being. Daily you come on and do the very same thing you did the day before, grow up for christs sake. Or at least attempt to add something.
"poop"
One more time you lie. I never belittled you, I simply pointed out your statement. You are the champeen liar, you come on and advise posters you disagree with about your sexual conquests of their wives and daughters. You brag of your sexual conquests of Hollywierd models and Circus Circus show girls. Unlike you I have never commented on posters wives and children. You are a liar and a phoney.

Any more questions?
You got your timeline out of kilter . Bush 'imposed sanctions on Russia after Georgia ' and Russia opposed Bush's efforts to expand NATO security guarantees to Georgia and place missiles there that would be aimed at Russia. Luckily , Congress voted against including Georgia under the United States nuclear umbrella for Western Europe and Japan that would have most assuredly led to a nuclear stand-off between Russia and America. Do you want that? If Obama 'lifted the sanctions' then it was because the crisis was over and Russia and Georgia settled their differences diplomatically.

I draw conclusions based on my experiences. I assumed most people want to work. I realize, now, that isn't necessarily the case. It's abhorrent to my nature when I see nearly half our population receiving government assistance and at the same time patting Obama on the back for the great job he's doing. It's almost as if you like what's happening to our country (sarc).
I have stated a number of times that a lot of our social programs are out of control, I blame both parties for this. It's way past time that we start with far better supervision of all social programs. Having said that I also see them as a necessity and basically a good thing as there will always be some in our society in need for numerous reasons. The key is supervision so we can weed off the moochers while lending a helping hand to the deserving. Just stopping every thing is the worst possible solution in my opinion. Far to many innocent children and needy old folks would suffer and I don't see that as a solution, or the American spirit.

<quoted text>Didn't Obama win two terms? And he's a bigger hate monger than Ben Carson could ever hope to be. Obama makes David Duke look like a piker when it comes to racial hatred. He makes Jimmy Carter look like an economist when it comes to ruining our American monetary system and he and his butt boy Holder are starting to make Hugo Chavez look like Mother Teresa when it comes to our once envied justice system.
The corruption in this administration and on the left in general is mindboggling - from a president who deliberately lies to the country for his own political aspirations, to his sidekick and notorious Chicagoan slumlord, Valerie Jarrett, who calls all the shots, to his fellow corrupt Chicagoan politician, Eric Holder, who prostitutes justice in the name of personal bias and illegal surveillance, to Harry Reid who is under investigation for misusing taxpayer money and lies without any proof about the opposition for political power, to the IRS and Lois Lerner who takes the Fifth to protect those in power, to the four democratic lawmakers who were just arrested and under FBI investigation for stealing from taxpayers and the too numerous to count democrats who throw the race card down so many times it's lost its meaning.

But an African-American who was raised by a single mother who went on to become the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, who has a moral and ethical compass and who uses common sense to address the issues instead of blaming and intentionally creating divisiveness is considered a hate monger.

Too many liberals simply have their heads on backwards.

Your reading comprehension is flawed to the max. He not only posts the proof but explains the process very well. So because there are those including I that support the president you think you have the authority to label them as worshiping the Messiah, or is that just your opinion? Or do you consider that a fact? No one has ever mentioned or said that he can do no wrong, you for all the world sound like a frustrated old biddy, with little to no ability to make any kind of coherent statement. You also obviously have no self respect or shame as your daily posts prove.

Shouldn't a big part of the blame go to the administration for firing her before they knew what was involved. It seems the government judged her guilty before proven innocent. They were more concerned with appearances than guilt of one of their employees. She turned down her job when they offered back to her. Could this be why the government is dragging its feet with the discovery?
Follow the trail...if Breitbart had not falsified the video. Sherrod never would have been forced to resign from her position. She never would have been treated unfairly by her employer. All trails lead back to Brietbart and he (in this case, his widow) must pay for his actions.

No one can fault her for not wanting her job back after the way she was treated. Andrew Breitbart changed the atmosphere. Andrew Breitbart's is to blame. It's too bad Andrew Breitbart's widow isn't willing to make things right.

The government has provided 3,000 pages of discovery. How is that stonewalling? The only stonewalling being done is by Breitbart and O'Connor. This has been dragging on for three years. Three years!!! Enough of our tax dollars have been wasted on this nonsense. The widow of the big fat cow needs to clear the cobwebs out of her pocketbook and pay up.

I'll repeat slowly, Hobby Lobby's rapid expansion was funded in part by government(s) through the issue of tax breaks and incentives along with a plethora of grants.

The corporation accepted tax dollars from the states, counties and cities in which they built or opened new stores.

Hobby Lobby wants it both ways__fk Hobby Lobby!!!

Feds apparently already argued and lost that this info was irrelevant with the judge.
Focus and stop all the irrelevant dribble and name calling or bow out!
What don't you understand about the judge being a Republican appointed by George Bush? He has turned this into a Kangaroo court and the Federal Government is not going to be his pawn. As Glass said, they will produce more discovery when the parties are more specific in their requests. I suggest you "bow out" as you have no idea what is going on.

It's not the hardworking citizens who paid into the democratic idea of social engineering and who want back what was promised in return for the government taking their money all their working lives.

We're talking about the abuses in a broken system due to the breakdown of the family structure among minorities and an administration who refuses to address the real problem and encourages more abuse.

The staging of "My Brothers' Keeper" program has already been forgotten and you will never hear a black democrat or white democrat address the real problem with as much fervor as calling everyone a racist who disagrees with them or demonizing anyone and everyone who does address the real problem.

Andrew Breitbart phonied up many of his bizarre stories as do most other right wing sites__the nonsense is so easy to debunk that a sane person would question what the point is.

Then you read comments on topix and other such forums to learn that many of these mopes are nowhere near sane.
