thamike: Teiritzamna: thamike: As a Jehovah's Witness, I'm excited at the opportunity to be able to offer my employees insurance that doesn't cover blood transfusions.

As a Christian Scientist, I'm excited at the opportunity to be able to offer by employees insurance that only covers prayer assistance.

As a Scientologist, I'm excited at the opportunity to be able to offer my employees insurance that only covers dictionaries.

As noted - this is one of the major flaws of the mandate especially given the massive protections given a sincere religious belief under RFRA.

/generally, in law, adding parties to a required relationship makes enforcement of that relationship harder

As a Mormon, you've had too much coffee.


As an Atheist, Religion is fooking antequated and should have not limit the rights of people that don't have the same imaginary friend you do. Your "rights to your beliefs" stop where they impede on other human beings.

thornhill: Karac: The Court will rule on the validity of a Massachusetts law that limits speech within 35 feet of an abortion clinic except for those passing by and employees of the clinic. The aim of the law, challenged is to ward off harassment of visitors to the clinic by anti-abortion protesters. It is challenged by Eleanor McCullen, a woman who argues that it violates her First Amendment right to free speech.

Outlook: grim for Massachusetts. Conservative justices voiced considerable skepticism of the validity of the state's law as it relates to peaceful or quiet talk. That includes Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is seen as a likely swing vote.

Concerning abortion clinic protesters, there is no such thing a peaceful or quiet talk.

There's an abortion clinic near my house; the protestors try to get as close and in the face of the women as legally allowed.

Over the last 5-10 years, I've lost all faith in, and respect for, the Supreme Court.  They've stopped being honest arbiters of what the Constitution says, and have become partisan hacks.

Scalia is the worst.  I don't wish death on people as a matter of course, so I'll just wish a debilitating but totally curable disease on him so he's forced to retire.

There is absolutely nothing peaceful or quiet about an abortion clinic picket line.

Police have access to automated devices that bypass pass codes.

re: recess appointments

If Congress does not want to do its job and approve presidential appointments, then I think there should be a maximum length of time before said appointment becomes automatic. This bullshiat of not approving people because they don't like the president is total crap. The nation voted for Obama a second time. Get over it.

Pfern: This is the main reason the GOP will be extremely upset when HRC wins the presidential nomination in 2016. Can the right-leaning justices last until 2024 and possibly longer?

But Justice Antonin Scalia expressed sympathy with letting cops search someone's iPhone in certain situations, like when they have reason to believe doing so may stop a bomb from detonating.

Someone's been watching too many Bruce Willis movies.
