Let me introduce you to a notion that you Tea Bagging Bible voters live in denial about. Halliburton made billions in no-bid contracts rebuilding Iraq's infrastructure. Seems we weren't "broke" then.
And alot of Muricans made alot of money and paid alot of taxes too. So it all just cycles back to your precious gubment overlords anyway.

What are ya belly aching over? Because that money wasn't redistributed to welfare people who just go buy drugs from drug dealers who never pay income tax on that revenue?

Wrong? That was a direct quote from the majority opinion. You are so deluded and in love with your media cites, that you have just declared that the media knows more about what a Supreme Court decision is about than the justice who wrote that opinion.

This has been a very interesting exercise.

Yah, that has absolutely nothing to do with the infrastructure being rebuilt here in America, which is what we were talking about. In fact, what in the hell are you even flapping your mouth about? Do you even know? I don't know any of the hypothetical "welfare" people you guys keep clucking about but I bet you picture a very specific group of people when you do. Very specific. Now go blurt out some wisdom like "Keep your government hands off my medicare!"

I understand just what you are saying but I would like to remind folks that the SCOTUS ruling was 5-4 with a very vocal dissent. This ruling is likely to be passionately 'discussed' for decades. There should be an effort for civility & respect for varying opinions, even tho that is not likely.

Neat fact of the day:

From 1969 to 2005 the supreme court ruled in favor of corporations 50% of
the time.

Since 2011, the court has sided with corporations 88% of the time.

Whether or not the Hobby Lobby case was decided on First Amendment grounds is not a matter of opinion. It is a matter of fact. And the fact is, it was not. For some reason, the self proclaimed "conservatives" on this forum have a long standing problem discerning between opinion and fact, even when fact is delivered to them.

The libs are salty cause their little Zero Care had holes in it. There are many parts of it that are unconstitutional. This will fill the courts for years
. Another one will be Halbig vs Burwell

Let's hope they lose this one too.

You & others have made that point a number of times. Some people can't comprehend what they read or hear & others are in denial of what they don't want to read or hear. Sad that too many people are that way.

So "he started it" is what you are going with. Ever the high road.

Also, why do you call your boss "Dumbama"? How long do you suggest we listen to you cry about the big raise you never earned or your personal irresponsibility of buying cigarettes instead of easily affordable healthcare?

Finally, why did you guys forget to thank the American hero president who gave you a big tax break? Why didn't Fox News blow trumpets from the roof of the broadcasting center when Obama gave the Tea Baggers EXACTLY what they were crying for, in the form of a tax cut? It just doesn't seem very "fair and balanced". Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Just saying fair and balanced next to Fox News is so absurd it's funny.

Such a gullible little man. Drink your kool aid, rubber ducky. Scalia and Thomas only attend those Koch Brother events for the smashing finger foods...right? Pay real close attention to how many times they side with big daddy Koch. Cha-Ching! Bought and sold like a cheap floozie.

Over a year ago, I stated that corporations are wh0ring out religion to push forward their agenda. Let's all thank our American hero president for giving Hobby Lobby the Affordable Healthcare Act and opening their eyes to the fact that they had been providing "baby killing" services for their employees for years before it came along. Obama lead Hobby Lobby to the true path of Christ and it will be added to his very long list of things he accomplished to save us from the Conservative created economic disaster that was looming in our country's future, thanks to the obviously poor political decisions made by people like Reality Speaks and PornTrucker.

Just another conniving cry baby tactic of the right wing nutballs when they don't get their way. Once it sinks in what a horrible decision it was, we'll look forward to you guys rewriting history to distance yourselves from it.

Funny how every other company that tried to play religious patty cake games with heir customers all ended up making public apologies after the will of the American people boycotted them into a panic. Dear Hobby Lobby, when you apologize to everyone, be sure to act like you mean it, or it's bankruptcy for you.

Yeah, Pops, we are living in weird times regarding the Supreme Court. It's the result of the long game that Republicans have been playing since the middle of the 20th Century. They have had a program of appointing young justices that are anti-abortion absolutists, and now they finally have a majority - a majority that is composed entirely of male Catholics. And despite all of them stating they would respect past precedents (stare decisis) during their confirmation hearings, once they got in there they started working to overturn those precedents.

This will backfire, as these things always do. The Democrats have also started nominating younger judges, so the power of these individuals will be greatly increased by their longer service. Once the Democrats gain the upper hand again, they will set about reversing all the 5-4 decisions. The real loser will be the prestige of the Supreme Court.

"The very question of partisan voting hardly arose until 1937, as dissents on the Supreme Court were infrequent. When the justices did divide, it was seldom along party lines.

There is room for interpretation in such assessments. But of the 71 cases from 1790 to 1937 deemed important by a standard reference work and in which there were at least two dissenting votes, only one broke by party affiliation.“The dividing line in the court was not a party line,” Zechariah Chafee, a law professor at Harvard, wrote in a classic 1941 book.

Nonpartisan voting patterns held true until 2010, with a brief exception in the early 1940s, when a lone Republican appointee voted to the right of eight Democratic appointees. But the general trend was the same. Of the 311 cases listed as important from 1937 to 2010 with at least two dissents, only one of them, in 1985, even arguably broke along party lines.

That adds up to two cases in more than two centuries. By contrast, in just the last three terms, there were five major decisions that were closely divided along partisan lines: the ones on the Voting Rights Act, campaign finance, arbitration, immigration and strip-searches. In the current term, last month’s campaign finance ruling and Monday’s decision on legislative prayer fit the pattern, too."
