maudibjr: There is only one true religion: Moneyand fried chicken!
Nadie_AZ: Remember those sweet, warm New England summers? Remember sipping lemonade underneath a shady tree? Remember when you hit that pedestrian with your car at the crosswalk and then just drove away? Pepperidge Farm remembers.
Animatronik: Lee Jackson Beauregard: Animatronik: You like single payer because it is one more step towards zOMG SOOOOOOCIALISMFour legs good, two legs baaaaaaaad!Yeah there are lots of pigs and cows in this thread.You like single payer because you think it eliminates the inconvenience of having to deal with small groups of people that have am actual opinion on something you want.The reality is that this is not about one or two companies it is about a set of requirements for paying for contraception as a health care benefit that are RIDICULOUS and should be thrown out.Contraception us not health care, period.

OgreMagi: RoyBatty: But Hartmann points to European nations in which in law, it says that corporations have a responsibility to the nation. And there, Friedman's argument is wrong. They as a society have chosen differently.The problem with that is the government gets to decide what is considered running a business in a manner responsible to the nation. Get a majority of twatwaffles running the nation and things could turn ugly. Also, that is one of the primary pillars of the fascist system.
The Larch: Hobby Lobby owners want to deny their employees the ability to purchase birth control at group rates negotiated by an insurance company.In a just world, every judge this went in front of would cite the case "go eat a sack of yeasty bungholes" and the legal precedent of "no, I'm serious. I sent the bailiff to the slaughterhouse and he brought back a sack full of yeasty bungholes. The owners of hobby lobby will eat them now, for our amusement."
bobothemagnificent: DamnYankees: bobothemagnificent: The could rule the whole thing unconstitutional.What whole thing?The WHOLE damn law, in its entirety. Don't forget that Stevens, Thomas, Scalia, and Alito wanted to do just that originally because they thought that this law created powers that the constitution never intended the government to have to begin with. Don't be surprised if that comes up again in private discussions.
Corvus: It will be sad to see him pretend that he never said it or somehow this is magically different. I have hope he will be consistent but doubt he actually will.
