Why don't you tell us what computer you use?(To pursue your consuming fascination with all things male homosexual.) Because whatever hardware or whatever software or whatever isp you need to boycott that, too, Cletus.

Ya know, after I hit the "post comment" button, I thought I would add another post asking "wondering" if he might indeed mean that very thing. I just didn't think it would be worth the extra post, though. Thanks for the follow-up.

We boycott those two. lol
They are just the tip of the iceberg. It is difficult to keep a list of all the anti-gay businesses to avoid. We were looking for a couple of new chairs for the guest room we just recently had painted and we thought we'd make a day of shopping. As we entered this one shop my cousin pointed to that fish symbol in the window and we turned around and left. We went out and had lunch and a couple drinks instead, then came home and ordered some chairs online. They should take only a couple weeks to make, so not a problem.

I know that In&Out Burgers is owned by religious zealots but are they anti-gay? I do not eat there but I know people who love the place.

You mean like Chic-Fil-A and Hobby Lobby? If they can make public their belief system, then so can the folks on our side.
Dan Cathy should have kept his personal opinion private but I support his right to speak his mind. Hobby Lobby won their case, as they should have. Now that the supreme court has defined closely held companies as "people" with "religious rights" thing will get very interesting.

Yeah, I guess if you own a company and have religious beliefs against medical attention, transfusions, vaccines, etc. all ya gotta do is say "God tells me so", and you can just drop medical insurance for your employees. And then, if you truly believe that God tells you to segregate the races, you can fire all your black employees. A truly insightful decision by the Court. What a bunch of right-wing garbage.

I often wonder if you believe the stupid things you write, or if you merely throw your phases out there in order to have the last word. Do you have enough brains to know how stupid and irrelevant that remark was?

The point is that, if companies want to celebrate Christmas with their customers by selling Hershey Kisses in green and red wrappers; if companies want to celebrate Easter by producing pastel-colored M&M's; if companies want to celebrate St. Patrick's day by producing green beer; if companies want to celebrate All Saint's Day with gremlin-shaped lollipops, then why shouldn't companies celebrate Pride with rainbow colored wraps?

Oh, I know the answer: Because you "don't care" about gay people. In fact, you "don't care" so much that you're offended whenever gay people are even acknowledged. You "don't care" so much you become infuriated whenever anyone else offers a gesture of goodwill toward the gay community.

This is not what most people mean by not caring. I think what you really mean when you say you "don't care" is that you don't consider them to be human beings worthy of respect or even acknowledgement.

Until recently companies were not forced to offer insurance to their employees. Religion aside, I don't think anyone should be forced to buy a commercial product of any kind. Obamacare went a step further, it told people and companies what it must cover. The next time that GM goes belly up will the government force us to go out and buy a Chevy or Buick?
I see no difference.

In a way I think Obamacare is a step toward a single payer system. If you saw the premium increase proposals for 2015 you'd think the insurers where the #1 fan of the single payer system. They will put themselves out of business. Someone has to reign in the greed of mediocre doctors and overpriced hospitals.

That's right, especially when some "closely held" muslim corporation/person gets into the religious-exemption-from-the-l aw game.

Or scientologist companies. Or jehovah's witness ones.

Of course what will be very interesting is how every other religion's claims will be dismissed by the Justices who supported Hobby Lobby.

Justice Ginsburg the genius was absolutely correct, as usual, about the coming chaos. And swing vote Kennedy is an evident halfwit by the standards of people who are able to get through law school. Just like swing vote O'Connor before him was a halfwit by those standards.

First paragraph: Companies are not now forced to buy insurance for their employees. However, if they don't, they pay a small penalty. And small companies are not penalized at all.

Second paragraph: Reigning in the doctors and hospitals and insurance companies is one of the aims of Obamacare, and many are trying to kill it. So far as it being a step toward single-payer, I agree, but I wish they would have just gone ahead with it. Make Medicare for All. I would happily pay four times what I pay for Medicare right now. When I first retired, and got insurance on the open market I was paying 9 times what I pay for Medicare. I don't believe everyone should pay the same, but rather base premiums on income level and age. The insurance companies don't have to go out of business, as they would still have the Supplemental and Advantage programs. And for god sake let Medicare bargain for drug prices like the private insurance companies do.
